First Quad Ride


It was such a beautiful day today, we had to take advantage. Tyson has never been on a quad ride with the family so it was the perfect time to go out. I think he loved it, he talked and jabbered for the whole ride. This is one of my favorite family activities, I haven't been on a ride since a week before Tyson was born. I love spending time out in the forest, it is so peaceful.

Project

We have had a busy week this week, while my brother-in-law was in town for the arrival of their new baby, he offered to help Marty pour some concrete at our house.
It turned out so nice, I am excited for Dylan to have more space to ride his tricylce.
Thanks Nathan!

To crawl of not to crawl?

Thinking about crawling and......
crawling.
I'm not sure that I am ready for this.

New Nephew

Rebuilding a small piece of history.

This is the original fireplace and chimney.
This is my dad, working on the chimney.


Last weekend we went to my parents house in Clay Springs to help with a family project. My great grandparents staked claim on some land in Clay Springs in the early 1900s and they built a small homestead and raised their 13 children. One of those children was my Granddad Perkins, our family will celebrate his 100th birthday next June. My dad and his brothers and sisters who were raised on the same land, decided to rebuild the log cabin before the big birthday celebration next year. So last weekend my dad, Marty, some of my uncles and a few cousins got together and put most of the walls up. There was alot of heavy lifting with the logs, so there were just guys working on the house. My aunts and girl cousins came a few hours later with a nice lunch for all the guys. Here are just a few pictures of the cabin.

Sitting on the gate!

The other day I thought Dylan was riding the tractor with Marty, I went out to tell them dinner was ready and this is where I found Dylan. It kind of scared me. Does this mean that someday he might slip through the top part of that gate? hmmmmmmm

I hate when stuff gets cancelled!

I will use this time to vent a little bit.
I signed Dylan up for an art class a couple weeks ago, it was supposed to last for 6 weeks, it was going to be so much fun and so good for Dylan. This morning was supposed to be the first class. I was wide awake at 5:30 becuase I didn't want to over sleep and not have time to take a shower, and I was so excited, so I couldn't sleep anyway. I have been talking it up all week to Dylan, I think he may have been kind of happy to " go paint " as he would call it. Everything was running smoothly, we were running on time, that never happens, everything was great. 30 minutes before we were to leave the art teacher called and said the class was cancelled. I was so sad, and mind you this is not the first time I have signed Dylan up for something and at the last minute it has been cancelled. It is kind of getting old. Ok I'm done.
