Fire pits and Camp outs

I love that the weather is getting warmer. I also love having great friends to share it with. I went for an impromptu burn last night. The kids played in the yard until it got dark....and then continued to play for a bit more while the adults played a spontaneous game of name that tune. It was too much fun!!

The rest of my week will consist of getting ready for our next camping trip to a little place just down the road. We will be joining this fine family again and one more family of friends. I am quite excited because this time we have electricity!!

My New WIP

I love Crochet Today, it has some of the best, up to date, crochet patterns I have seen. That is my one beef with crochet, there are very few cool trendy easy to wear items to make. Sure I can make enough afghans to supply a small town, but I would like to wear some of the things I work so hard to make. Well this months crochet today has so many things to wear I didn't know where to start. So I decided to give this cute chevron cardi a try.

I love the colors, although I am not using the exact yarn they called for, it is pretty darn close. It is a very simple pattern. The only problem I have had is because I didn't check my gauge (I know, I know, very dumb) so I had to rip out the better part of the back when I realized it was a 1x and I am a small....oops!!

Feeling Better

Hello blog friends. It has been a little over a week since I have updated. Things seem busy this time of year. My parents came down for a visit over Easter and the kids and I ended up driving back to PA with them. You see I started getting sick on Sat night which totally ruined plans of going to church. My dad drove our truck home, and we followed my mom and Avery in their car. Unfortunately, I am still not better, what ever this is has gotten the best of me. Before the sickness kicked in I had run my first 5K saturday morning, and Avery and Keegan did a one mile fun run. My dad got a little caught up in the moment of the runners coming in so I got no action shots of me running that day, but there is always next time right?! They both did great! So here are a few photos from the last week.
There's my gazelle.
There's my little rabbit...
Brother and Sister. She ran it in 7:03, he ran it in 8:something. I am so proud of them!
Finding Easter baskets. We do not teach about bunnys bringing baskets. They know the real reason for Easter and if that is all I have taught them by Homeschooling I am okay with that!!

Spring arrived about a week ago full force in the neighborhood. Not only do the mailboxes match, so do our front trees....
This is seriously the biggest turtle I have ever seen. He was on the road when we were leaving the neighborhood so I carefully helped him into the grass.
