The Park

A few days ago on our way home from work /daycare we decided to randomly stop at the park. Jag had a blast!!! My sister and her puppy “Ceaser” went with us as well. Here are some pics from the park. I must say Miss Johnie girl enjoyed herself also!!!

This sweet little park is not too far from our house. It is very small but we were the only ones there which was very nice. The ground is rubber-ish which eases a mammas worry also.

Jag was not too impressed when we had to leave but he did okay. His fit didn’t last too long J He’s 2…oh my is he 2!

Turkey Season

John started a tradition 3 years ago of taking a picture with Jagger each year with his spring turkey. So as of last month we now have 3 pictures on the wall.
In the 1st pic jag is 6 months old

18 months old

This pic was taken this year….daddy and Jag. Jagger is 2 ½

I look forward to the turkey wall that shows Jagger growing up. I just wish it would slow down a little…he changes so much every year!
Now we need a tradition with little Johnie girl…..any ideas? Leave me a comment

So…because of these babies (excluding the dogs)

I have allot of toys to try to contain

And allot of empty formula containers

I have started re-purposing these empty containers as toy bins.
Here’s what you need:
Empty formula container
Scrapbook paper

I cut both pieces of paper down to fit the container height

Then I glue the paper to the can, overlapping because one piece is not enough the cover

It works best to tape down the finished edge so the paper doesn’t stick up at all. You could use a glue stick instead of tape.

Super simple and very practical!

Our Weekend

Our weekend included:

Lunch with Grandma
Cousin sleepover
Finger painting
Baby pool in the back yard
Crawfish for Daddy
The Crayola Store

On Sunday John and I took Jag and our nephew Will to LEGOLAND at Crown Center in Kanasas City. We had a great time. Here are some pics from the trip.
To get geared up John needed a belly full of crawfish...gross if you ask me but he LOVES them!!!
