Lazy Tuesday!

Hey Everyone!

Today has been very relaxed, this could be because Everett was up coughing most of the night. :/ That isn’t ideal. I have been taking it easy today, because I’m a bit tired. I find myself just zoning out haha. People probably walk past my office and think I’m losing it.

My mom signed Everett up for a mommy and me ‘swim’ class on Saturdays. He was on a wait list, but I guess we are off of it now and expected to go haha. I think it is a great idea. I loved swimming as a kid and now we can get him acclimated to the water at a young age. The kids can go with parents, grandparents, whoever really. If we can’t make it one week that is fine too, so there is no pressure to do anything that doesn’t work for us. There are a few people that do it, my sister in-law included, who do it. We will see how it goes this coming Saturday.

We have not yet heard anything about our pre-approval for the house. I would have expected to hear from them already, I might have to call the bank lady. We would like to know as soon as possible to start getting things in order. I’m pretty nervous and excited about all of it. The more I eventually know the better I will feel.

There isn’t anything else I can think of to update you all on, so I guess I’ll end this here. I don’t know if my brain is working at 100% today haha. You know what I mean.

I’ll see you all tomorrow! Have a great day. 😀 😀


Gender Reveal & Playground! (Pics & Vids)

Hey Everyone!

We had a pretty exciting weekend, with a lot going on. I’m proud to say that I took pictures and videos of all of it. Go me! Saturday morning my wife’s went out of town with friends and I took Everett to my brother and sister in-law’s gender reveal. They were announcing the gender of their second child, they already have one girl. It was out at a hunting camp in the woods. Here is Everett holding a pink balloon, I guess we know what his guess was! 😀 (Sorry it is a little blury but he was on the move)


Everett and his cousin Rory played on the floor while we waited for everyone else to arrive and eat.


Here is my brother holding Everett.


This one is a funny comparison. Everett, Rory and Pepper the 2 year old Great Dane haha 😀 😀 (Both of their Great Danes were there but I only caught the one)


On to the more exciting stuff! Here is the box my brother made to reveal the gender. Inside of this box was Tannerite, and on top of the Tannerite was a bag of colored powder. My brother’s goal was to shoot the Tannerite through the box and have it explode the color all over the place. (For those of you unaware of what Tannerite is you will soon find out.)


Here is the video I took. ( I set my phone on a chair and backed up haha, I wasn’t that close) (SOUND ON)

By now you know they are having another girl haha. Here are a few pictures I took after the reveal.




We set Rory up on the stump, she’s a cutie!


We finished the afternoon up there and had a relaxing evening at home, once my wife was back.

Sunday started like any other, lazy and sleepy. I was trying to get a few games in, before Everett woke from his nap but that didn’t last too long.


My wife had him downstairs after that and she sent me this picture haha, that hairdo! 😀



It was nearing 3:30pm and we were experiencing some cabin fever, so we decided to take a walk. It was about 43 degrees F, but the sun was shining.


We were going to walk our normal distance, but liked being out in the fresh air after being cooped up all winter. We took Everett, and our dog, about a mile down the road to the local playground. This was his first time at a play ground. He was able to enjoy his first time on a swing. 😀


This, of course, followed by his first time on a slide! 😀


He did enjoy both, but wasn’t sure what was going on at first. We had successfully had a play date at the playground!


About half way home again the poor little guy was all tuckerd out!


We stopped and saw my parents on the way home, since they live a city block away from us, and headed home. We had some home made burgers and beans for dinner and watched a little March Madness before going to bed. Overall it was a very pleasant weekend. We can’t wait to get outside with him more now that he is a little bigger.

That is all for me, I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
