The fall like days of summer

The weather here has been cool the past few days. Feels like fall is settling in. Bradyn has had to wear winter pj's the past 2 nites!

We had a great week. Bob got one of his projects partially finished this week. We went to St. Louis after I got off work on Tuesday and spent the nite. Wednesday we took Bradyn to Grant's Farm which is such a fun place for kids (or adults like me as Bob told me!) It has at least one animal from 6 of the 7 continents. The weather was perfect and no crowds. Last year it was dripping hot and packed so the middle of the week was a good idea. Bradyn had a BLAST! He was so into it minus feeding the animals (Mom did that!) He did not nap while we were there but as soon as he was in truck he was out and slept the whole way home. It was a fun family day.

Thursday was back to work and the normal routine. Yesterday, Bradyn and I went to see my friend Julie that is ill. There was a benefit for her that we went to. It was great to spend some time with her. There was a ton of people there so I hope that they raised a TON of money for her and her family. After that we went to the R/C track to see Bob race. Bradyn loved that and was mad when we left.

Today we went to church and did a few errands after and we are hanging out at home. I have to go grocery shopping today which I hate.

Have a great week. Enjoy the pics!

That is what our week has been! Bradyn is finally feeling better and we actually have enjoyed some time outside this week! Work was crazy this past week because my doctor was going on vacation so we had a ton of people squished into our schedule and it will be the same the first week he is back. This week I am going to enjoy a nice slow week!

Bob was busy getting his RC car ready to race for a big race at the track only to have it cancelled because the track was too wet due to all the rain that we had during the week. So instead we did some work outside yesterday and today we went to the airshow with the Thunderbirds! We have seen them before but no matter how many times you see them they continue to take your breath away because they are absolutely amazing to watch. The weather was perfect cloudy but warm. It was a fun day out and Bradyn had fun.

Bob is off work this week because of work being shut down for the week so he has lots of house projects planned. We are hoping to take a trip to St. Louis this week too depending on the weather. I will try to get some pics posted tomorrow.

Have a great week!

Happy 4th of July

Take a minute today and reflect on the true meaning of July 4th. Say a prayer to thank all of our military personnel that have given their lives to protect our freedom. Sometimes Americans take for granted all of the freedoms that this country allows and if it wasn't for our military protecting us day in and day out we would be without those freedoms. God Bless America!

I hope that everyone is having a safe and happy holiday weekend. We have been couped up at home today. The weather has been miserable - raining all day and cold. We were to go to a cookout and fireworks tonight but Bradyn has been sick since Thursday- AGAIN! I think that we have spent more time in the house this summer than out because of a sick child. He got sent home from daycare on Friday because of a fever. Bob took him to the doctor that day and he checked out fine- the Doctor thinks he has another virus (how many childhood viruses are there??I think that my child has had just about all of them:) ) He has had diarrhea and a fever off and on since then.

We did get to go to a cookout last night because at that moment he was fever free. We had a good time and got to see some fireworks. Bradyn had a good time too.

Today I have spent doing a good cleaning of the downstairs. Nothing like a fresh cleaned house- but I HATE to clean. It was a good day for it with the weather we have had.

Hopefully Bradyn will be feeling better soon. Have a great rest of the weekend and I will try to post some pics this week!
