Happy Birthday Cookout

Wes surprised me with a birthday cookout across the street Saturday night. I had gone with mom earlier that day to run errands and eat lunch. I thought Wes went with Justin to help him so some yard work but they were really setting up for the party.
 We had it in J & K's back yard on their new patio! We had the best time!!! We got us bacon wrapped steak burgers, loaded potato salad, baked beans, and cupcakes! Some friends brought rotel, chips, corn dip, etc
 Just the girls, love them all!
 Laci and Dave got to sneak away for a little while too!
 Sweet family! Those boys are a hilarious mess!
 Kyle & Christine
 So sad it was blurry, we have Bert to blame for that!
Thanks to everyone for coming and celebrating with us!! And a big thank you to Wes for pulling it all off and arranging everything (With KiKi)

Family Birthday Dinner @ JJ's

I had a fun birthday dinner last night with the family at JJ's! We went so we could hear Jeff Fox (Foxy) play and sing. He played at our rehearsal dinner so that was fun getting to hear him again! 
Just the TWO of us!
 Wes sent me roses at school yesterday...All the kids wanted to know if my "boyfriend" sent those to me. When I explained "No, I have a husband and his name is Wes" one little girl said "I know about Wes but I thought your BOYFRIEND sent those. My mom has a husband, it's my dad but she also has a boyfriend." HA HA HA HA "I thought your boyfriend was Justin Bieber" (HILARIOUS)
 Birthday cake from Ricks!!!
 Joss danced the entire night...throwing her hands in the air!
 Then she got down front and center stage and took OVER. She seriously has the best time anytime there is some music playing. Dancing fool just like her MiMi
 Ms. Linda made these delicious cookies for the class to enjoy and my kids also made strawberry/raspberry sorbet punch...amazing!
I had a great birthday although I don't want to be another year older!

Couples Shower

Last weekend we celebrated our friends Christine & Kyle at their couple shower! Our little cul-de-sac has gotten so close and Wes and I have made some great friends.
 They had a great turn out and got showered with so many great things! Some of their friends threw a fun shower for them at one of their homes and the husband cooked up some delicious BBQ for about 45 guests!

Green Thumb

We got our garden all ready and planted this weekend! We worked on it most of the day Saturday and got it all done. I'm so happy with the way it turned out!
 Hemi loved lying on the cool fresh dirt we poured in the garden, what a mess!
 And Lyla rode around getting more dirt with her daddy.
 Final product: tomato plants, broccoli, onions, squash, jalapenos, lettuce, & cilantro!
 Joss was over later that afternoon so she got a quick ride on the mower with her Uncle Wes!

Naturals Baseball Game

It's that time of year again...Naturals Baseball! Wes and I really enjoy the baseball games, we spend lots of warm nights at the ball field. It's soooo close to our house and great inexpensive entertainment. We caught up with Laci and David last Friday night in the box to watch the game! Towards the end of the game Strike and Sinker (newest mascot) came up to the box to hang out so we snagged a few pics with them :)
 Something about a hot dog and baseball together just does the trick since I'm not a huge hot dog fan.
 Me and my hunny!
 They ended up killing us but it was still a good time with friends. And since it was a Friday night they had an awesome fireworks show afterwards that was amazing!!!

Art Show

Every year our school puts on an Art Show for families to enjoy! My class worked soooo hard for 6 whole weeks making all kinds of neat things. We learned about different artists like Picasso, Van Gogh, Matisse, and more. We painted on shoes, made a vase out of old discarded jewelry, built wood structures, painted with palette knives, made tie dye hats, note cards, and bookmarks, and made a huge circular canvas and then painted rings around each piece on the canvas! I'm curious to see what this will go for at our auction in a few short weeks!

Just another day playing in the yard!
 We ran to Big Lots and loaded up on some bubbles to play with. I think this was her first exoerience with bubbles and she loved them!
 Watching the dogs play!

petting zoo

Time to wrap up pictures from Easter Sunday, I had sooo many! Josslyn wasn't sure what to think of the petting zoo. She liked being held and then when Wes put her down all the little goats went running towards her she was kinda unsure.
This little baby goat jumped up right in her lap.
After a little while she started giving them love pats
Too worried about that load chicken behind us then getting ger picture made.
That teeny tiny piglet was so darn cute but we weren't suppose to hold it :(
This little momma had a Joey in her pouch
Beautiful Peacock!!!

This monkey was hilarious! Some people next to us were feeding him cheetos and he was LOVING it. He would motion his little finger to give him another one.
Just a watchin' with her uncle W
Pretty sure she was the Queen of the World! She loved it up there, did not want to get down and in the truck
Smell you later...until next time!

Gentry Zoo Part 2

It got a little warm that afternoon so all the animals ended up in the ponds.
See the little baby?
I've always loved zebras, they are soooo pretty to me. These would come right up to the truck and stick their whole head in. That part would kinda freak me out but they seemed harmless to Wes.
Had no clue what was right behind her, had to take a break for some juice.
These little bear cubs climbed up and down their fence and played around, so active and cute!
Tigers and Lions and Bears...OH MY
American Alligator

These animals are amazing to prehistoric or something!

Tinniest baby prairie dogs and oh so cute!
