Life Lately- April

I have had this post saved for awhile but for got to finish it, ha!
Here's a little look into our life lately in April...

Sisterly love....somedays they do like each other!  They are watching Grey's Anatomy and bonding.  So nice to see them together and quiet.  Not screaming.  Or eye rolling.  Or name calling.

Emma's bff's making mini pizzas for her birthday.

Our nephew got married the middle of April, loved how this pic turned out!

I hit a turkey on my way into work.  Who knew they could cause so much damage??

For National Administrative Day, our salesman stopped by Nadia Cakes to pick up a dozen cupcakes.  Oh.my.word.  SO good!!

Rachel and Emma went through gun training and had their field day, so Brad did some practicing with them.  Emma finally got over her fear of shooting a gun and did awesome.  Brad said she was Annie Oakley!

We poured a concrete slab last fall for a fire pit and finally got to use it, we love it!

Oh Hey June!

So apparently it's June already.  Where the heck did May go??  I don't like the fact that time flies by in warped speed.  Sheesh.
Here's what we were up to in May!

We drove down to see my Grandpa who is in a nursing home.  It was so good to see him and chat, he could talk for HOURS about when he was in the war, and I love every second of it!

We had a finch that flew into our patio doors and died, so William and Alayna had a funeral.  Alayna even sang the Hallelujah song, haha!

The end of May I got to go with Brad to a work convention in Chicago!  I had never been and absolutely LOVED it!

So much to see and do and eat!

I was able to go on a field trip with Alayna's class to the Ojibwa museum.  It is a really cool museum all about the Ojibwa Indians and their culture.

Alayna was gifted some roller blades and has been rollerblading non.stop.

Over Memorial Weekend Emma and I were very busy making food.  We made this homemade strawberry lemonade that was AMAZING!!

We had our annual Memorial Weekend campfire at the farm.  Emma enjoyed hanging with this sweet thing.

All the dads and kids had a wiffle ball tournament.  Most of the dads couldn't walk the next day.

Finally mousey had her dance show!  She is in a hip hop class and she danced SO well!  I wish she would stick with it, but I don't think she wants to.

She vowed she will never wear that outfit again, haha!

This summer is already crazy with all the girls' activities and running around, very thankful to have help (thanks mom!) to get them to their destinations.
Now I just need a secretary.  And a drink.
