Apparently, Dallas needed a little extra protection for when riding the Gator

Reba drinking all of Momma's cherry Coke from Steak 'n Shake!

Dallas found these boards in the garage, and he thought they would be the perfect ramps for loading the stroller into the Gator.

This little monkey won't go down the slide by herself, but she will  climb as high as she can!
Until next time...

Thursday Tails

We brought Charlie and Fred to the new house when we came back from Ma-maw and Pa-paw's Father's day weekend.  We were so lucky to have them keep the dogs for us while we were living in the apartment (aka: hotel).  Dallas and Reba have been enjoying chasing them around the backyard and giving them treats.

Until next time...

Father's Day

We headed north to stay with the grandparents over Father's Day weekend.  Pa-paw and Aunt Lisa were taking their sheep to show at the Rush County Fair, and they needed some extra help from some special little people.

Reba crashed from all the excitement - she slept the entire way back to Ma-maw and Pa-paw's as well
Dallas fell asleep on the way to Ma-maw and Pa-paw's, too
Later in the evening, Reba found the kitty hiding under the kitchen table

Fun Friday Fotos and Flick

*Sorry this posted later than I had planned. I put this together early this morning, and I had a lot of trouble uploading the video.  I have to get used to a slower internet connection again :)

Dallas was so excited to get his Gator back last week.  I think he has ran the battery dead each and every day since.  Reba got on the first day, and then she got scared and wouldn't get back on until yesterday.
We got the swingset up (and staked) last weekend.  We also finally attached the tarps.  The kiddos have been enjoying the swings and slide, and I'm enjoying not having to drive to a park multiple times a day.
Reba doing a little back porch sittin'
And finally, a little flick

Until next time...

Wordful Wednesday

Be warned: There are a lot of pictures and words in this post...I'm going to try and catch you up to what we have been doing.

We received the keys to the house on June 5th!  On Monday, June 6, the kiddos and I spent the day at the house cleaning before the movers arrived with all the boxes.  Since we didn't have any furniture, we ate a picnic style lunch in the kitchen!
The kiddos took their first naps in their new rooms
Bright and early Tuesday morning, June 7, Ma-maw and Aunt Lisa showed up to help with kid crowd control.  They also brought a trailer-load of our things (deep freeze and lawn mowers)  Gram and Pa arrived mid-afternoon to help as well, and brought a trailer-load of furniture.  The movers got a late start on Tuesday and didn't arrive until 11:30-ish (they were to be at the house between 8:30 and 10).  They then had trouble trying to get the truck and trailer in the driveway.  There was a power line coming to the house hanging too low over the drive, so they just parked the truck on the road!
Then came ALL the boxes!  This is what my house looked like on Wednesday, June 8 after everyone had left (including Dallas who spent a few days with Gram and Pa so Momma could get some boxes unpacked).

Reba loved helping in the kitchen

Thursday afternoon, I was able to get Reba to nap in her crib in her room!
Our weekend was full of activity, as Gram, Pa, and Aunt Josie brought Dallas back to us on Friday evening.  After Doug got home from work we all headed out to watch the Evansville Otters take on the Joliet Slammers.  The Otters lost, but it was still a fun evening.  Check out some of the history of Bosse Field (a lot of A League of Their Own was filmed there).

Saturday morning, Pa, Doug, Dallas and I headed to the Classic Iron Tractor Show at the fairgrounds in Evansville.  We then came home to spend the afternoon playing and working on various projects.  Ma-maw, Pa-paw, and Aunt Lisa also came down Saturday evening (with a 2nd trailer load of our things).  They too helped us with some various projects around the house!

Sunday morning, we were back to work on more projects!  Ma-maw, Pa-paw, and Aunt Lisa took off early in the afternoon.  Gram, Pa, and Aunt Josie took off about mid-afternoon.  Doug headed for Iowa (Williamsburg of all places) for a safety training meeting on Monday.  I headed north with the kiddos early in the evening to spend the night at Ma-maw and Pa-paw's.  After lunch with Ma-maw and Pa-paw on Monday, I took the kiddos to Gram and Pa's so that I could attend the 82nd Indiana FFA State Convention!
My state FFA officer team celebrated our 10 year anniversary this summer.  Thankfully, all but one of us were able to make it back for the special event.
L-R: Rajean (Robertson) Bergman, Treasurer; Erin Menchhofer, Southern Region Vice-President; Justin Moneyheffer, Sentinel; Kyle Kohlhagen, Reporter; Liza Moore, Northern Region Vice-President; Kim (Hall) Stockment, President.  (Karissa (Hedrick) Moar, Secretary, was unable to make it from Australia where she lives with her family)
Tuesday morning, I picked up the kiddos and headed back home!  Doug's flight back to Evansville arrived about noon on Tuesday.  That brings us up to date.  Needless to say, I still have a lot of boxes sitting around, but we are slowly making progress.

Until next time...

As we were driving back home today (more on the trip north later), they decided to hold hands.  They can be soo sweet to each other sometimes...

Just testing out the Internet connection in the new house!

We got the keys last night around 6:30.  We stayed until almost 9 o'clock letting the kiddos run around the yard and all through the house!  Needless to say, they were very excited.

The movers are coming tomorrow with all our boxes.  I'm here with the kiddos today doing a little cleaning before we make a mess with the boxes.  This morning the Internet tech came and got us online, and the delivery men from Lowes brought our new fridge.

The kiddos are taking their first naps in their new rooms, so I had better get back to to come later (I forgot my camera cord at the apartment)!

Until next time...
