We spent a lot of time around the house this weekend and it was wonderful. The kiddos played outside, building a fort and a camp site. Daddy did the yard work and tinkered with his jeep. Mommy came in and out as I tended to Barron and just a bit of much needed inside chores (like laundry - yuck!) I love just hanging out and not necessarily having a plan. We just played and played!
The highlight of the weekend was the big Franklin Rodeo. Briley thought it was the greatest. She loved having a little friend about her age there. Her and sweet Sarah always hit it off. We need to get them together more. The big treat of the night was the matching cowgirl hats they bought. Braxton came out with a cowboy hat, too. He picked a black one "just like daddy's " and boy was he proud! Barron wasn't overly impressed with anything he saw except the coke bottle he slobbered on most of the nite. Now, I do love the rodeo, but, it always gets my allergies fired up. This time wasn't too bad, though. I guess because they are so torn up just from being outside right now that they couldn't get any worse. So, one of my favorite parts of the weekend was dinner with daddy at Stoney River. It wasn't just us -Nate and Tiff and some business guys were there too, but, no kiddos and great food!
Now, my other favorite part of the weekend... My sweet boy Barron Hudson had his baby dedication service at our church. It was a quick, kid filled service (i'm sure you can imagine). I feel so blessed that the Lord entrusted Joey and I with another miracle. Our ultimate goal is to raise our children to love the Lord. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 4. Barron did relatively well, even though he let out a few of his big squeals. And brother and sissy bear they did pretty good, too. Thanks to the family who came out to support us since it was such quick notice on my part! I can't believe I let it sneak up on me. I knew I was supposed to check my big red calender all week but just kept putting it off.
This is a big week for us...field day, end of school parties, and the official start of summer! Yea!
