Boys and their toys

Recently, Ry resurrected his RC car that he built when he was a teenager. He always tells me that he and Griffin are going to build one when Griff is older. Until then, Griffin is pretty content with watching daddy drive the car and helping him "fix it." These two are quite the pair.

Gibb Family Pictures

Last weekend, Dusty and Jade were in town so we decided to take an updated Gibb family picture. What an event! Jami set up her tripod and clicked away. She got some good shots that will be great after a little photo-shop work. With 8 grandkids, there's always cutting and pasting to be done. After pictures, we enjoyed some fun rides then topped the night off with pizza. It was a fun night with the Gibb's!

Spence was a fantastic assitant to Jami. Great lion impression!
Teeth or no teeth, Jaxson is a stud!
Wouldn't you know - Griffin was the craziest of all the kids. He was focused on the carousel. When I mentioned cutting and pasting before, I was talking about my child. And no, I didn't pull his arm out of the socket. Just looks like it.
The 8 grandkids.
My handsome boy.
Me and my loves.
The mini-ferris wheel was a hit! The kids loved it.
Choo-choo time.
Oh Tater-bug, we miss you!
Ry wanted to take a picture with the carousel moving. I think it's pretty cool!

Why we live here.

This time of the year, right now, what we like to call "Spring," is why we live here. The weather couldn't be better! Sunny and slightly warm during the day. Clear and cool at night. Perfect for any outdoor activity. I wish it would stay like this all year!! Come mid-July I might forget why I live here. But for now, we'll soak it all in!

Griffin and I visited a new frozen yogurt place the other day and enjoyed our treat outside. Griffy insisted he hold it and ended up eating the whole thing.

Yard Sale

When: March 6th and 7th (Friday and Saturday)
Where: My sister's house (Rachel)
What: Mommies of Multiples put on a huge yard sale ever year. Rach offered her house because she has the perfect house and location for yard sales. They do it twice a year and have tons of baby and kid stuff. You don't want to miss it!

Leave a comment with your email if you need directions to her house.

I'm in love with...

Reasons why I LOVE this place:

- The stores are small.
- The packaging for their produce, meat and cheeses makes everything look nice.
- The sample counter!! There are always 2 or 3 things to try and the sample workers are actually nice, unlike the Costco sample nazis.
- The employees. So nice and always ready to help.
- The coupons.
- The F&E products. We love the pudding, tortilla chips, oatmeal, orange juice, ground beef, trail mix, peanut butter pretzels, bread, and raisin bran.
- The 50% off section.

I could go on and on about this place. I find myself making up reasons to go there. If you haven't been to Fresh and Easy yet, you have to go! You will fall in love too.
