berry picking...

On Saturday morning the kiddos and I met up with Hannah and her little darling, Lilly, at a local berry-picking farm.  We have actually never done it before (and it showed) but we left with some jam, 2 containers of Raspberries and Marion berries!  We were sweating and whining, but all in all it was a great morning spent with great friends!

The funny and wonderful thing about Lilly is that when we found out that Hannah was having a daughter, we joked around that Lilly and Maddux would eventually get married.  Funnier yet, they share the exact same birthday!!!  Meant to be, I think so :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!

l&f etsy...

I recently put a new project under my belt...re-opening our Etsy shop.  I first opened it a few years ago and sold 3-4 items, but then life got in the way and I stopped doing it.  I really love Etsy and it's quite easy to have a shop.  The purchases are seamless and they take care of a lot of work (payments) so it's very user-friendly.  Also, I LOVE thrifting so it works out great.  We've had a handful of sales so I am very happy with it. 

There is a link on the right hand side that shows all the current listings.  If you have any suggestions or tips for selling on Etsy, please let me know!!

weekend in bend...

We all took our annual trip to Bend this past weekend.  It was an absolute blast!  We don't usually take the kiddos along, but last year I kept thinking "the kiddos would really like this" so we decided to bring them along this year. 

On Saturday morning we went "off-roading" (according to the kids and the dirt road) about 30 minutes from Bend and headed to Tumalo Falls.  It was about a mile hike and then we found some great little brooks where we could wade in the water and have our picnic.  They were real troopers!  We also threw pinecones into the rushing river, hit the local street fair, and made a fort in the room for the kiddos to sleep in.  It was a great trip :)

We got home on Sunday afternoon and we took some nice naps ;)  I took today (Monday) off of work and Jeremiah took me to the driving range for the first time ever today and I had a blast.  Then we went and ran some errands and then went to his employee work party where we played games, ate cotton candy and the kiddos had their faces painted.

All in all, it was a terrific weekend!  Hope you all were able to enjoy the sun wherever you may be :)

splash pad...

On Sunday night Jeremiah and I packed up the kiddos and a picnic and headed to a local splash pad in Wilsonville.  I didn't even want the kiddos to change into swimsuits and he headed out into the 90+ degree weather fully dressed and ready to get soaked!  They had a blast and we brought a Frisbee (which was eventually turned into a water-scoop by everyone there) and then headed to Wendy's for some Frosty waffle cones on the drive home.  It was bliss on such a bliss-fully hot day!

our 4th of July...

Hello all!  Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!  We may have had our best 4th yet :)  We had so much food, fun, and fireworks.  The day started off with Jeremiah playing golf with friends and the kiddos and I sleeping in (until 9:30am!  Oh, happy mama!).  Then we played some board games and ate lunch.  Then we all took naps (oh, happy mama again!). We ate some BBQ with some friends, played outdoor games, ate s'mores, and then enjoyed fireworks until way after dark.  It was a fantastic weekend and perfect from beginning to end. 

Maddux was NOT in the mood for pictures, so you won't see as many of him.  We don't mess with the "mayhem Maddux."  He comes around about once a year and he is not to be toyed with. :)

This is the look I get after asking Jeremiah to make me a 7th s'more...
