Favorite Pin Friday

I am totally in love obsessed with Pinterest. I have been getting some really great recipes that I have been trying over the past couple of weeks. So far all of them have turned out great! I've also found some great cleaning and organizing tips too. And I really love all the funny stuff out there.

So lets see, after pinning what seems like thousands of things this week, I have to share the funniest one I came across. Its from NickMom and it sooo funny and true!!

Spring Baseball Time Again

We have been so busy around here the past couple of weeks. Spring baseball season has started up again and we have spent 3-4 nights a week up at the fields for practice. Gavin's team has been splitting up their practices between the batting cages and the fields. Gavin moved up to the Minors this year so he has been adjusting to playing with older kids who are a little more experienced than him.
Last Friday we had the opening ceremonies out at the fields. All the divisions were out there in full uniform and got to be introduced on the main field. After the ceremony, we had some dinner which was catered by a local BBQ place and also Chick-fil-A. Katelyn got to high five the Chick-fil-A cow and also the girl cow!

We had our first game last Saturday, another one last Tuesday night, and our 3rd game was just this past Thursday night. Gavin's team is called the Bulls.

And Today From Katelyn,,,,

As we were driving down the road today Katelyn said to me:

Momma? When I get very you...will Danyelle still be my sister?

So cute and funny on so many levels! I am always surprised when Gavin or Katelyn thinks I'm old. I don't feel old but I guess in their young minds I am over the hill.

Very Old. Sheesh Katelyn!! Thanks!!

But to the cuteness....That is the cutest-make-my-heart-all-fuzzy question!!

I told her Danyelle will be her sister always and forever.

No matter how old and wrinkly they both get!

Trigger, Penny, and Blizz

We FINALLY went horseback riding in TN. We've had it on our to-do list for the past couple of years but never actually got it on our schedule.

But, this year we did and I am so glad we did. We had a blast! I was just a teensy bit nervous about Katelyn being on her own horse, but she did great. Katelyn was put on a horse named Penny and she was tied to the lead horse. She LOVED it! Here's pics of her getting settled onto her horse.

The stable that we went to was The Deer Farm Exotic Petting Zoo and Riding Stables. Our guides name was Mike and he was lots of fun. Even though he had to yell at Ken a couple of times to get his horse moving. LOL

Ken was on a horse named Annie and he was behind me the whole time. Poor Annie was slower than molasses and just loved to walk Ken through the trees instead of staying on the path. The whole ride I heard Ken talking to her: Annie come on now, Annie follow the other horses, Annie where are you going? Annie--come on now! Lots of laughter thanks to Ken and Annie!!

And here's another of Ken and Annie- way behind everyone:

I was on a horse named Bo and we had no problems. Oh, except for the fact that he was in love with Katie's horse Tina who was in front of us. Gavin's horse was Blizz and he had no problems riding at all. He thought it was pretty cool that he got to ride a horse for 45 minutes! Danyelle's horse was named Trigger and was a great horse also!

The trail we went on was just perfect for us. Lots of shade in the summer heat, some inclines and some pretty steep hills going down. All the kids did great and we had such a great time!!

ZhuZhu Ice Cream Party

We are right in the middle of summer and around our house we have definitely been taking trips up to our local ice cream parlor!! Summertime and ice cream go hand in hand.

We recently had the opportunity to try out some fun new colorful ZhuZhu Pets and have an ice cream party.

Thanks to MomSelect we received 4 ZhuZhu Pets, a ZhuZhu ice cream truck, and the ZhuZhu ice cream parlor.

The ice cream truck was an instant hit with Gavin, Danyelle, and Katelyn. After switching it on it plays music just like a real ice cream truck and the Zhu Zhu Pet is placed inside to drive the truck all over!

The Ice Cream Parlor came complete with drive up service for the ZhuZhu's and lots of tasty treats!

The kids had a great time playing with the ZhuZhu's and all the accessories and then we had an ice cream party of our own!

Thanks to MomSelect for providing the ZhuZhu Pets and accessories for the party. All opinions are my own.
