Labor Day weekend!

We had such a fun and LONG weekend!

image

We really enjoy our new home {and town} and everything it has to offer!

image

On Saturday morning we decided to skip the farmers market and go tailgating for the first football game of the season instead!

image

It was Preston’s first time tailgating!!! {8.30.2014}

image

After tailgating we headed to the Williamson Pumpkin Patch to pick up some sweet corn, veggies, and mums for the front porch! We did a little shopping and then headed to Pepperjax Grill for lunch. {philly steak sandwich…um…YUM!}

When we got back home we took a dip in our little blow up pool! …beverages included!

image

We relaxed the rest of the evening!

{..and i was able to enjoy looking at my boys in their bro tanks} 🙂

image

On Sunday morning I slept in 🙂 and chad cooked us frittatas for breakfast! They were delicious!

We made some homemade apple sauce in the crock pot with apple from Deal orchard.

image

image

It turned out awesome!!!

image

We walked to Walmart for some last minute canning supplies. We wanted to can our applesauce, homemade salsa, cucumbers, and sauerkraut!

image

It was about a 4 mile walk round trip… And it was SO hot out!! {80 degrees, full sun, no wind!}

..but we were able to see some new additions around our neighborhood!

image

When we got home, Chad got to work on making the rest of our goodies to can and freezing our sweet corn.

Preston took a nap.

…and I went to the Mall! 😛

We had bruchetta {with fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden} for dinner!

It was another great day in the books!

on Monday morning I got up with Preston and I let chad sleep in! I got the house cleaned and then we had cinnamon rolls for breakfast. We lounged around in the morning and eventually took a family nap! 🙂

after our nap we decided to head to Brookside park for awhile.

image

It was SUCH a beautiful day!! 70’s and sunny.

image

Preston got to go on the swing for the first time!

image

He LOVED IT!!!!!

image

AND WE LOVED PUSHING HIM!!!

image

He went down the slide for the first time!

image

image

He was able to ride all the fun animals…

image

surprisingly he did a really good job of balancing on it!

image

but don’t worry, chad was right there to catch him when he started to tip!

image

He was able to watch his first baseball game with Dad!

image

Bentley even got a little lovin’!

image

Overall, the park was a blast!!

image

After the park we went to enjoy a little Foyo at Orange Leaf!!

image

we had such a fun filed day. When we got home we planted my mums for the front porch and continued to enjoy the nice weather.

image

..and then just relaxed in our jammies for the rest of the night!

image

It was an amazingly fun filled weekend!!!

I’ll leave you with one last cute photo of my Pumpkin!!!

Until next time… XOXO

Preston – 5 months

Preston celebrated his 5 month birthday this weekend by attending a Tough Mudder event this weekend.

image

He was SO good the whole time. I was so very proud of our little peanut. He didn’t cry the whole weekend and was such a trooper staying up past his bedtime, napping in the car or his stroller, and staying outside for about 5 hours while we watch Chad participate in #toughmudderMSP.

It was a great way to celebrate his 5 months of life.

image

We had to do his mini 5 month photo shoot a few days early so I wouldn’t have to worry about it while we were gone!

image

Preston is getting so big!! He weighs about 19.4 lbs and is already wearing 12 month clothes.

image

He loves people, rolling over, grabbing his toes and sucking on them, too!

image

He loves when you blow raspberries on his tummy, grabbing items with both hands, and chewing on everything in sight!!

{he has recently become obsessed with his binky, too!}

He has one tooth poking through on the bottom and about 3 more teeth about ready to break through the skin.

He can sit on his own for a few minutes and loves talking to Bentley.

He is our favorite part of everyday!!

image

Oh and everyone, I mean everyone, comments on how happy he is!!  We were blessed with a very happy baby.

image

He is always smiling, talking, and laughing. ((as long as he gets his nap anyway!!)) He’s still sleeping about 11 hours at night.

image

Preston was able to go on his first swim this weekend! When we finally checked into our hotel on Friday we decided to take a dip. We walked over to Target and purchased some swimwear (we forgot ours!) and took a nice long soak in the pool.

image

He really enjoyed it.

image

I can only hope he decides to become a swimmer someday! (like is Mom. His Dad failed guppy class a youngin’! haha)

image

The last month has been so great!! This is definitely my favorite time. ( I think I say that every month!!)

image

…Until next time. xoxo
