Lunch Outing

Maximus and I met up with a couple of my girlfriends today for lunch at a quaint little café. Afterwards we went across the street to a locally owned farm & market.

No, these aren't the girlfriends that I was talking about.

Maximus kept referring to the goats as "dah dah" (doggies).

I see a wrestling match on the horizon.

 Maximus with my friend Genese. I love this gal!!! She is so dear to me. And I must say, very funny too!

Maximus grabbed some feed, but as I predicted, he almost put it in his mouth.

Me & my baby

Here's my other dear friend, Dawn. She's a sweet lady...a wife and Mother of 2 children. Just recently she decided to go back to school to get her nursing degree. Isn't that cool? Love that she's following her dream.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

A Walk and a Nap

We have been having some beautiful weather lately, so yesterday, I took Maximus out for a long walk.

I noticed about a half hour into it, he was getting sleepy. He hadn't had a morning nap yet, so I lowered the seat in his stroller and he fell asleep for an hour.

We ended up walking over to the duck pond where we use to live. We hadn't walked there since last year. Unfortunately Maximus was sleeping at the time, so he didn't get to see the goslings (baby geese). They were adorable to watch in their fluffy little "coats."

What's your weather been like lately?
I hope you're getting some sunshine.

Happy day!

Weekend Fun

Friday night we had my parents over to celebrate my Mom's Mother's Day.

Maximus trying to take Grandma's card

He put up a bit of a fight...


On Sunday we went over to Rob's parents to celebrate his Mom's day.

M with Grandpa

 He played with the fly swatter again

Maximus is trying to talk Grandma LaLa into getting her picture taken...She's with the Secret Service so she likes to stay incognito...(haha)

Veronica (my niece) & Maximus relaxing in the hammock. By the way, Veronica is pregnant & due in October. I can't wait to find out if she's having a boy or girl.Yay!

How was your weekend?

Happy day!

Happy Mother's Day

Me & my Mom

Rob & his Mom

Me and Maximus

Okay...before I go any further...isn't it amazing how much Rob and Maximus look alike? I always hoped that if I ever had a boy, he would look like Rob. Well, I got my wish!

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom & Mother-in-law! We are so blessed to have you both! We ALL love you!

And Maximus...if you didn't already know, I LOVE being your Mama!!!

And to all of the other Mothers out there, whether you have children of your own, or have a heart for children, may you have a wonderful day!

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not get upset with others. Love does not count up wrongs that have been done. Love takes no pleasure in evil but rejoices over the truth. Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always endures.

Love you!!!

Hanging Out at Grandpa & Grandma LaLa's

Last weekend we visited Rob's parents. In the afternoon it started to warm up, so Maximus got to go in their backyard.

He is not real comfortable standing on grass. It's pretty funny to watch. He looked like a statue for a while until he got adjusted to it.

The fly swatter that he found in the house earlier kept him captivated for a good part of the day.

LaLa's gorgeous azaleas

Maximus likes Panda and wasn't afraid to pet her. He says "dah dah" for dog.

Beautifully manicured yard

He appears to be on a mission

Springtime in its glory

Tulips - one of my favorite flowers

Taking time to stop and smell the flowers

A place to rest

I was trying to take some photos of the three of us. This one turned out funny. Maximus was getting a little wild with the swatter.

It's already May and I'm always amazed at how time goes by so quickly. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Do you have any fun plans?

Happy day!

An Experiment

ALL work & NO play...I need to get a LIFE!

Doing dishes is for the birds! Hmmm...maybe I'm onto something here...Where is that Kooky bird of mine?!

 "Hey Kooky! Come with me. I have an idea."

Every time that boy gets an "idea," I get just a little nervous.

 "Kooky, I want to test a theory that I have."

 "And why must I be a part of your scientific experiment, Maximus?"

 "Hold on Kooky. I need to make sure that everything is in good working order first."

 "You did NOT answer my question, Maximus!!!"


 "Just hang tight, Kooky."

 Kooky is SUCH a Drama King!

"Folks...Please do NOT try this at home."

 That should probably be enough time.


 "Uh oh...Kooky?"

 "Don't you worry, Kooky. I know CPR. I'll resuscitate you in no time."

"Well, I guess my theory didn't work, Kooky. Sorry to have put you through that."

 "So what was that brilliant theory of yours, Maximus?"

 "I figured if a dishwasher cleans chicken off a plate, then it should be able to get you clean, too."

 When will I EVER learn?

 Happy day!
