My family has been wanting to see Cache on his scooter. We got him a bike and a scooter at where else but a garage sale of course. He really seems like a little boy now instead of a toddler when he rides his new toys around. This day he was trying to ride his bike to grandpa's house or in his words: "crappa's house to watch a movie." We got him to ride down the hill as a distraction.. here is the footage.

We had a productive weekend.. these are some of my garage sale mom wanted to see my treasures. She didn't believe that I could find such cute stuff and not pay more than pocket change.. I guess one man's junk is Amie's treasure!(A lot of this stuff was free actually like the furniture) :)

The Perfect Gift

Ashley Sent us a "Thank you gift" for her time here in St. Louis with us and it couldn't be more RANDOM and PERFECT. Thank you Ashley! This gift is uncanny. It was soo perfect. I even wanted to go buy one TODAY for our car because of how hot it gets here and NO GARAGE.. And ontop of the perfect timing our car is now "lightning Mcqueen" (the van version).. Cache is crazy about it and the video of him opening it will soon be coming when the video option on my blog starts working again.. THANK-YOU!

Breakfast conversation

Cache is my buddy all day long. I crave adult conversations so sometimes I just pretend he understands and explain things to him, like my plans for the day or what color I want to paint the wall. One's thing for sure Cache enjoys a good conversation. He always acts like he understands and is listening. If it gets quiet for too long he will get frustrated and say "Mommy TALK!" Yesterday morning was a particular good conversation over breakfast, He started talking about the pictures on the wall. One of our wedding day and another of my siblings and one of Cache and I riding a horse. (The camera angle is funny because I had to pretend I wasn't video taping him so he wouldn't show off for the camera. ) I love this little boy.

Backyard Adventures

Posted by Picasa

Just some shots of happenings behind our house.
1. We built our shed(right before the tornadoes)
2. Cache drank all the left over soda from our BBQ during the MANY long hours it took to finish the shed.
3.)Devin almost burnt the house down with an oil is fine, but our favorite pot is is a gonner.
