Motorcycles & Muscle Men

Here is how we spent our weekend....took a ride on Saturday afternoon and had a great time...yes, all three of us went for about 120 mile ride - had lunch 1/2 way through and only got rained on the last mile!

Apparently - after riding the bike - had to show off his muscles....and Tatoo!

Both Muscle Men!!!

Home is Where You Hang Your Hat

So you're just not a Fulton until you have your cowboy boots and hat. This was part of our adventure for the weekend. Grant got his first pair of cowboy boots and hat - and I supose as most any little boy - wears them non-stop!

After wearing them out of the store, we get buckled up in the car and Grant says, "Dad, when do I get my horse?" Well, the horse will have to wait. But we did ask what his horse's name will be - without hesitation he said Charlie!

Here's the little buck-a-roo before church this morning....yes, he had to wear his boots. The hat did stay in the car.

This evening of course we needed to drive the tractor. He said he can go in the shed with Paw-Paw now that he has his boots and, he's been practicing.

"I'm just a little bit of a dare-devil!" Yes, Mom is worried...espcially all that I've heard about his name-sake....

And finishes with a final YEE-HA!

I'm sure there will be many more posts involving Cowboy boots, but hope you enjoy the first round so far!

4th of July

Here are a few of the things we did in Illinois the first part of July....

Went to the St. Louis Zoo - highly recommend it, only did about 1/3 of it as we had one tired little boy with all the 4th of July festivities!

Making grass angels...I guess when you live in Florida that's as close to snow angels as you'll get!

Frist morning playing - he thought it was a little cold outside, needed jackets and vest...again, I guess it's a Florida thing.
He warmed up and was able to shet the coats for a tractor....

And even warmed up enough to play in a little water with Blake!

We had a great time with all our activites.....until next time....

My Saturday Afternoon

Today I feel like I have accomplished something - I have finished a very long on-going landscaping project. Very long meaning I started it when we moved in just over a year ago.

The picture below would be what I call stage 2 - juniper bushed pulled out, but still have ugly big stuff....this is what we've basically had for most of the last year.

This winter some of our little plants died (as it was such a cold winter!) :) so that gave me the motivation to make other changes as about a month ago we had some of the bigger stuff pulled out and replaced with a pigmy palm and a little gem magnolia tree.

Finally, today Grant and I finshed it off. He had fun at the "plant store" and was a huge helper....all until it came time to get home and do the work...but we pulled it off and I'm pretty happy with what we've acomplished!!

On to our next project......
