Jackson's Orchard

This year we had a very busy October with weddings, birthdays and many other activities. Fall is my absolute favorite, and I enjoy all of the activities that we can usually do. This year we went to a Heroes Trunk or Treat and then quickly changed clothes and headed to Jackson's on their last day of Pumpkin Festival. 

Even though it was late in the afternoon and on a Sunday families were everywhere. The kids love it, but this year I didn't love the fact of even being charged to play on the playground. How lame is that? But what Mom could say no. So there I was paying to let my kids run wild in someone else's yard. 

Can you see how incredibly hard it is to get a quick picture of Bryar? I tried all day to get a photo of him and even had people come up to help but still it was just not happening. 

This was the best photograph that I captured of him. I am very sure that Charli was bouncing on her head to even get this look. His big blue eyes remind me so much of Charli sometimes. She looked just like this when starring off as a toddler. 

We went into the petting zoo but I was busy trying to explain to Bryar that he couldn't ride the goats like a bull and could not capture any pictures. Do I remember being a toddler Mom like this?

Charli is trying to explain to me why we need a rabbit. Because of course they posted a sign "Rabbits are for sale" and having a seven year old reader quiet the combo. She reminds me so much of myself as a kid. I was always wanting a new pet and ticked off that my Mom refused. Maybe...

We got snacks and cherry apple slushed and called it a day. By the time we got to the car Bryar was already falling asleep and Charli was dying to eat her caramel apple. We spent our night with Curtis and our frieda watching the finals of the PBR while Bryar rode my back and chased me around the house screaming "Bull!!!"

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
