Five M O R E Things That Never Made the Blog

I'm catching up - round two!  Here are five more things that never made the blog!

*Caution: Another photo heavy post!*

Fishing with Papa.  My parents came to celebrate Holden's birthday in April and it was nice enough to walk across the street and do a little fishing.  Of course, to me it was just an excuse to take photos; though I know my dad loved every minute!  Brantley may have caught more fish, but Holden caught a turtle!

There were a couple of rainy, cloudy, dreary weeks in April and May.  As much as I hate not seeing the sun for multiple days in a row, I love these photos that were a result of the rain!

My parents brought along my Grandma Fritz when they visited in April.  She got to meet Rhett and see where we live!

We took the boys to our first Royals game this year...and Rhett's first game period!  Things that actually happened at that game: 1) We forgot Rhett's paci (which didn't end up being a big deal--he looked around the entire time, didn't even fall asleep!). 2) We made a lap around the concourse with a helmet full of nachos, seven hot dogs, two beers, and three kids (and didn't lose anything or anyone.) 3) We dropped the same toppings-loaded hot dog on Brantley's seat TWICE (mustard, onions, and sauerkraut all over). 4) We got Rhett's first game certificate and the lady questioned how to spell his middle name - Kauffman 5) High faves with Sluggerrr 6) Lots of stares, smiles, and basically looks of "Whoa they're crazy for bringing three kids ages 4, 3, and 5 months to a baseball game...on a school night nonetheless". 7) The lady ticket taker asked if our third kid was an accident. Who does that?!?!  And 8) Memories made and our annual family photo in the outfield!

I celebrated my first Mother's Day as a mama of three!  First, I attended Muffins with Mom at Brantley's preschool.  While there, Brantley tripped on the playground while running and hit his head on the edge of the sandbox.  I have no idea how he didn't need stitches (again) and the scariest part was seeing him wobble like a drunk person as he walked towards me crying.  Luckily, he was okay and ten minutes later, ready to go play again.  Never a dull moment.  We celebrated Mother's Day by going out for brunch and Craig and the boys gifted me some Nickel & Suede earrings and a new, rose gold bar necklace that includes the names of all three of my kids.  It was a great day!

If you stuck with me this long, good for you!  Slowly, but surely, I'm getting my blogging mojo back!  I still have a few past things to blog about, but I feel like I can soon switch gears to summer things!  Happy Friday!

  1. I am loving these catch-up posts, friend! The photo of the two boys walking with their fishing gear sets my heart over the edge. So dang cute! Can’t you just imagine this same picture of them when they are older? Love all of the family time and that picture of your Grandma with Rhett is darling. Yay for baseball!!! You guys are the cutest little Royal fan family I have ever seen. I love the notes you have from the game. It will be so fun to look back on those one day. It really irks me that the lady asked if Rhett was an accident, though. Who does that? Seriously! Adorable pictures my sweet friend!! Happy weekend.

  2. The boys with their tiny poles & tackle boxes is the cutest!!! And your family coordination at the royals game was perfection!

  3. Love the photos of the boys jumping in the puddles! That is so fun. I need to get R a pair of rain boots soon :)

  4. How sweet your Grandma got to meet Rhett! Love the fishing pics, so sweet!!

  5. Yay for getting your blog mojo back! These pictures are so happy and bright.

  6. Loved this! I feel I need to do a post like this. There are so many things I've just skipped putting on the old blog.
    The fishing, and turtle catching, sounds so fun! And even better that Grandpa got to join in the fun.
    Puddle jumping!!! If it has to rain you might as well take advantage of it.
    Loved seeing your grandma! I bet she was in heaven with all those little boys to love on.
    And the game. Per the usual, jealous you get to see the Royals in action at the K!
    P.S. You. Look. Smashing!!

  7. Suuuuuuuper late reading this but loving the catch up! LOVE LOVE those fishing photos! I'm not big on fishing but am always in awe of the captures when people take their kids!
