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 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! 😀

10

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! 😀 😀

Hunting & Family Time!

Hey Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

As you know I went out hunting on Saturday, and since I didn’t see anything it was a pretty uneventful day haha. I mean I saw some birds and chipmunks but that was it. So I took a a couple pictures of my surroundings and a couple walks around the woods before I went home.This first picture was taken about 6:40-ish in the morning. I thought it was pretty neat that it was naturally this purple. Oh and it is from the stand I was in.

Here is about the spot an hour later.

I got out in the woods about 6:30am and crossed the creek to get to the stand I was going to sit at by the time I took that first picture. I sat their most of the morning until I did a big loop around the hill. My brother and dad were out as well so we met up around lunch time at the cabin and ate. After that I went home. I’ll most likely be going back out this coming Saturday as well. My brother’s deer is being processed so he should have the meat back soon.

Sunday was a lounging day for me, but turned into doing some needed tasks. I went to get groceries, alone because I am much faster haha. I still hate doing it, but I hate it more when I have to slowly stroll. This way I can get in and out in about 40 minutes, with everything instead of 2 hours. When I got home I had to take a picture of my boy with his animal book and drool on his chin. 😀

Later that day we decided that we would for the first time feed him his first piece of ‘real’ food. We cut him up a banana and let him go for it.

Clearly you can tell he is new to this whole eating thing. He didn’t do much more than suck on it, but the taste was still there and I think he liked it. We will now continue to introduce certain foods to him and let him learn on his own how to pick them up and put them in his mouth. I was surprised that he didn’t instantly do that, because anything else he grabs he jams right up there. This will not be his main source of food, we will keep him on breast milk, hopefully, up to a year.

After we got him all cleaned up we took him and the dog for a much needed walk. It had been a month or more since we had gone on one and the weather was sunny and clear. It was a bit chilly so we wrapped up the babe pretty tight. This was also the first time he was front facing in the stroller.

Those eyes though.

That brings us to today, back at work. :/ I would much rather do something else with my time but this pays the bills and the people are nice. We didn’t end up taking family pictures because our nephew was running a fever and to be safe they didn’t come. I also am pleased to tell you that I got a hair cut and I don’t look like a moron, so that is a plus!

I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
