Monday Photo Dump!

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the start of the week! We did quite a bit this weekend. Friday we went to Pizza Hut with my parents for dinner and Everett was being a normal goofball.


Saturday morning we headed back to the cabin. We are hoping to have the beds in before the start of the hunting season. We added stairs to the front and added boards to the ceiling. Some of the wall pieces are missing, because they are all pieces we have to cut to a custom size.


This area will be the bed room, with bunks on the right and left.


This next one is looking from the kitchen area to the bedroom. We have that half wall up to divide the room.


While I was at camp my wife’s two friends came into town. One of them has a little three month old. We got ready and went to the county fair for a few hours.



Next is a must have golf cart. Just sayin. 😀


Towards the end we lowered Everett’s stroller and he passed right out!


Sunday we went out to visit my wife’s dad. He has been in a nursing home for a little bit now. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a while ago and can no longer live on his own. It is pretty sad because he isn’t very old. He remembers us and Everett and loves holding him.


We were able to meet with his wife and their kid Remi and take him to the courtyard. The kids ran around like crazy.


The lady in the wheelchair is Lois. She has sort of been watching over my wife’s dad while people aren’t around. She came out with us and loved seeing the boys.


Everett and Uncle Remi are playing here with some cars on the little bench.


Later to round out the day and make the most out of it we met with her grandparents and brother’s family for lunch. It was at a very nice golf course in the area. They have great food and service.


If you have your volume on you can hear Everett slurp up his noodles haha. if you look close you can even see his top teeth! 😀 😀

Once we got home, we got in our comfy clothes and watched some New Girl. Everett has been looking though his legs so my wife was doing it too and he was laughing hysterically.


That was our weekend! We did a lot and it was, like always, worth it. I hope you had a great weekend too! I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀


Mother’s Day Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

This has been by far the busiest weekend for me in a long time. Don’t worry though, it was a good thing.

Friday after work I got home in time to get the mail. I had ordered my wife flowers from and they came, as expected. I got her some tulips because she had been wanting some. I got to pick out the vase too and I knew she would love this one. Have a look.


I made sure to order other flowers for my mom and had them sent to her house on the same day. She got a nice mix of colorful flowers.

Saturday was the big softball tournament. It is the first one that commemorates the start of the season. It really has nothing to do with where your team sits, it is just to get the kinks out for the most part. We had our first game at 9am, and it was cold, really cold. It started to rain, but quickly stopped. We though we were going to lose that game, as we were down 10 runs in the second inning. That is….terrible haha. By the 5th inning we ‘ten runned’ them, meaning the game was over, because we were winning by 10 in the 5th inning. It is a mercy rule of sorts. In those last three innings we didn’t let them score and in turn we scored 20 runs! I don’t think anyone was predicting that. We went on to play 3 more games. We won the first two and lost the second two and were out of the tournament. We would have been in 5th place when we went out, so not bad. We didn’t have our full team the whole day so that was to be expected.  I was able to hit eight home runs, two in each game, so that is OK with me haha. I was wondering if my hitting would be messed up from losing weight, but I guess not. By the way I am still sore today!

Then came the big day. Mother’s Day was packed full of family time. My wife and I got up and got ready. We were going to meet her whole family for lunch in Erie, PA, ( 1.5 hours away.) We ate at one of their Panera Bread places. Even her brother, his wife, and their baby came. It was nice to see all of them. Her grandparents made it out too. It was a full house. I had a nice turkey, avocado, BLT, and soup. They have great healthy options which I liked, because there are none where I live. Afterwards we said our goodbyes. We looked at a few stores, and then turned right around and went back home. We had about one hour before we headed out again to have dinner with my parents, brother, soon to be sister in-law, and their baby.  We ate at a local Chinese buffet. I was able to keep it healthy there too. 😀 Later we went back to my parents house just to hang out. We let the baby do her thing here on the floor haha.



She is a little over 8 months old and doing all sorts of fun things. She can army crawl, and stand with the help of furniture. She is trying to talk a bit and is getting a few teeth. Here is a shot of my mom feeding her some squash I think??


Over all the weekend was a success. It was fast and gone too soon. I’m glad we were able to do everything we wanted and see everyone we wanted to see.

Today has been so so at work. A few things here and there like a normal Monday. The basement people called me and I told them that we are going to hold off another year on the basement. We just don’t have the money to do it right now and I don’t want to be red lining my finances with a new baby on the way. When we get our taxes back next April we will have them come and do it. Until then I am going to lay cement down on the unfinished room and maybe try to seal the floor as best as I can to help with the water. With any luck it will do the job for now. Maybe while I’m at it I’ll finish the steps out font. Who knows!

That’s all from me. What did you do for Mother’s Day? Anything fun? Let me know down below. Until tomorrow! 😀 😀
