Just a short little post with pictures from our picnic. I have a feeling we'll be having regular picnics on Mondays! This morning we packed a little lunch and headed to Lake Mayer after Heidi's gymnastics class. I used to run around this lake either before or after dance class when I was in high school {which I need to do now, ugh} and it is right around the corner from gymnastics = perfect! It was fantastic until the possessed geese started circling us and hissing. Maybe next time we will put our blanket by the playground!

1st Day of Pre-3!

School is back in session for Heidi-bug. I never know how Heidi is going to react to going places or doing things, so I don't think I ever really set expectations on the day. On the way to school Heidi did not want to go at all. Once we parked and started walking in she was fine and seemed in a really good mood. On the way to her class she was still fine and then when we got to the room she walked right in with her teacher and looked around. I was so shocked because it was just the opposite of how she was in the car. I was so excited that she was in a good mood! Heidi even let me take a picture with her teacher! Now THAT was a complete shock. I didn't even have to ask her twice. When I went to pick her up she was still in a great mood and she said she had so much fun! Usually she tells me she does not like things. So, here's to a great new school year and tons of fun!

Heidi's adorable outfit came from "So Sew Jo" in Blackshear, GA. A childhood friend of mine, her mom makes the cute clothing :)

Labor Day Weekend

This weekend we headed to Charlotte, NC and hung out with family. We left home after John got off work and the trip up there was not bad at all! Heidi has turned into a great traveler {The days of wanting to drive off a cliff are still a close memory though} and Harrison is very patient, just feed him when he wants to eat and you're fine.

We arrived in time for dinner and the kids played until it was bedtime. I love that Heidi is at the age where she can quickly interact with her cousins. There was also some birthday celebration time for Grace's birthday! {I don't have any pictures because I was feeding Harrison}

Sunday we went to the Lazy 5 Ranch {we went there in 2011 as well}. Which is a fun petting zoo! We all rode in a wagon pulled by horses through the fields were all the animals were. The kids had such a great time. The plans were pizza and pool time for dinner, but it started to storm so it turned into pizza and movie time. At the end of the night we had another birthday celebration for John's dad.

It was a short trip, but so much fun! Heidi had a great time eating her ice cream on the way home, and then she slaved in the kitchen making up vegetable soup! It was delicious!

And...meanwhile, back on the blogging ranch I have some catching up to do! Harrison turned five months on Sunday and I still have yet to post his four month pictures. Bad mommy...
