Lots of great pictures from the Fair!!

We headed to Queen City and the farm last Wednesday.  Pioneer Days was to take place Wed-Saturday.  It is the annual county fair and we try very hard not to miss.   

So with out further ado, PICTURES!!!

Grandma and Riley being silly!
Jonathan and myself.

Jonathan exploring the square.  He loved walking everywhere!
Riley hanging out during the kiddy races.

Riley messing around on the stage.  Both Riley and Jonathan loved running around up there!!
Nate on the Adrenalin Rush.  It was a blow up maze with climbing and a slide and maze.  This is a typical picture of Nate the whole time we were there.  He was on this or the bouncy house or the big slide.
Nate pretty much had the run of the square.  He was really good about staying by us.  The inflatable stuff was right near us and he could go back and forth between us and those.  We were set up under a tent with Aunt Amy and her sound system and the Pioneer Table.  My mother in law and father in law were overseeing that table.  The sold tickets for a raffle and pins that my father in law made with old pictures of Queen City.  Nate made friends with Michelle who ran the sno cones and Nate "helped" out quite a bit!! 

The picture of Jonathan is where we were hanging out in the back of the van waiting for the kiddy parade to start and then the Grand Parade to start.  The boys played with toys and had a snack.  We were able to stay out of the sun there which was nice.  The parades were great!!  Were thrown a ton of candy and saw lots of people, classic cars, classic tractors and lots of horses!

I love this picture of our niece Ashton!  She is so pretty!  She was announcing the award ceremony of the 4H and FFA kids.
Jonathan getting bored so he decided to check out the cooler.  Loved playing with what little water that was in there.  Putting his foot in was pretty exciting too!
Jonathan and mommy being silly! 
I was trying to get Jonathan to stick out his tongue but he wouldn't do it.  He just smiled and thought it was silly!  The next 2 pictures are of him and I snuggling.  I love his smile and his hand on my cheek!  Pure love!!

All in all, we had a great trip to the farm!  The kids were great but we were all ready to come home.

Have a great week everyone!!

More pictures of the boys from the farm

Both Jason and I took lots of pictures while on the farm last weekend and I couldn't decide on just a few.  I ended up going through the pictures and picking out 24 pictures so far that I want to share.  I know there are more!

Here are more pictures that I just had to share!!

We were just walking around the farm checking out the tractors, garden and such.  Grandma grows wonderful veggies for us to eat while we are there!  We were checking out the zucchini that Grandma grew!

More pictures to come on another post!

Weekend at the farm

I cannot believe how long it's been since I blogged last.  I apologize to my faithful readers that I haven't updated especially with pictures of the boys.

Last weekend we headed to the farm.  Jason's family farm.  We had plans to head to Iowa on Sunday for his moms family reunion.  We had a wonderful weekend!  The boys played outside as much as possible.  Nate went on many Mule (like a John Deere Gator) rides as did the twins.  We grilled out, went swimming (Jason and Nate) and just relaxed and had good conversation.  While daddy and Nate were swimming, the twins and I explored the farm.  I had fun getting pictures of them while we explored.

Nate's stamp of approval with his brothers!

The other day I decided to let the boys finger paint with pudding.  That way the twins could join in and I wouldn't have to worry about keeping their fingers out of their mouths b/c of the paint.  This way, they could taste the 'paint' and be ok.  Nate had chocolate pudding and the twins had vanilla.  The twins just pretty much ate their pudding and didn't play with it.  Nate wasn't so sure about the whole thing but dove in with both hands and had a blast.  I think his favorite part was cleaning his fingers by licking them!!  Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.  I had them paint w/o their shirts to make clean up easier.


After everyone was cleaned up I sent them on their way to play so I could clean up the table.  As usual, they all headed to Nates room to destroy  play.  I took a break and went to sit in the living room for just a few moments and Jonathan and Riley come crawling into the room.  This is what I was met with:


Nate had found in his room a stamp that he had gotten when he played bingo at daddy's work back in December when they had Winter Wonderland.  I did a double take when I saw the boys and then cracked up laughing!!!   I guess Nate is cool with having his brothers now!  He gave his stamp of approval!
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy 1st Birthday, Riley and Jonathan!!

A year ago this morning, my beautiful baby boys were born.  Riley at 11:11am and Jonathan at 11:12am.

Riley and Jonathan, you have been such a joy to our lives.  You make us laugh everyday!  It has been a wonderful year watching each of you grow and change.  I can not wait to see what this next year brings us!



I took the boys in for 1st birthday pictures today and I will share them as soon as I can.  When I get more time, I will have to add some other pictures of their first year.
