A Gator and A Guitar

 These are the weekends I love....

My thoughtful husband purchased a Polaris Ranger "Gator" on my birthday.
Happy Birthday to me!
(now maybe I can get some things done around the house because he will be taking Ryker for rides all night long) 

This thing is NEAT! 
The kids (my hubby included) played on it all weekend! 
The neighbor kids love it, Ashton loves it, Ryker loves it, Dukey loves it, We all love it!
Good purchase my love, good purchase!


We ate Popsicle after Popsicle after Popsicle on this HOT HOT weekend!

And played with "Snakes" -- AKA a Worm

I was lucky enough to spend Sunday morning/afternoon with one of my very best friends,
Celebrating the arrival of her baby boy in late August!!! 
(Not sure if she wants me spreading his name around the world, So you all will have to wait until he is here!)

I am so very excited for the Garate Family, they are FINALLY joining the mommy and daddy world and they are going to be such great parents.

Welcome Chris and Katie... WELCOME!


Of course, SO excited to be part of Baby Garates life!
 I just hope Baby Garate loves me, as much as, Ryker loves his Aunt Katie!

This was the diaper cake I made for the baby shower.
Baby Garate's room is kinda music themed so I thought this seemed appropriate.
<><> <><> <><>
Yes, I made this! Yes, I am very proud!
I would put more pictures up from the baby shower but I need the pictures from Katie.
Guess who can't find her camera cord.........
Pictures from the shower some other time I guess! :)

 The weekend came to an end and we had to say goodbye to Grandma Jane & Papa, Uncle Wyatt, Uncle Nate, Chole, Haley, friends, and Ashton.

We love weekends that we get to be around family and friends.
 But saying goodbye is hard.
Especially when Ryker has to say goodbye to Ashton! :(
(Insert photo here, except I felt so bad for him that I didn't even think about a photo op!)
