Reesie took her first steps!!

Two days ago Reese took her first steps. She took 4 of them and they were to daddy. She has been really NOT wanting to walk. She will stand up all by herself, but as soon as she realizes it she sits down. Almost like she is afraid. We just keep on practicing. I'm sad I didn't have my camera close by to snap a picture. As soon as she does it a little better I will get a video of it. YEY Reesie--good job!!

Thank-you grandma

The kids were very excited to get a HUGE package in the mail. Grandma Sipes sent them a fun wagon and a wheel barrow. As you can see they ALL enjoy it. We have never taken so many walks. It is alot of fun. Riley and Raegan will take the wheel barrow out by the chickens and "work." They gather sticks and dirt and rocks. Thanks grandma for the great summer fun.

Riley the FaRmEr

My kids are LOVING having animals at the house. We now have about 200 chickens, turkey's, a rooster, 5 goats and 3 rabbits. They love to go out and feed the animals and talk to them. Well one day Russ was moving the broiler chickens (meat chickens) from one pen to another. Riley jumped right in and started grabbing them left and right. I was a little surprised that he was not intimidated at all. He even grabbed them by their feet like Russ does. Here he is still in his pajamas NICE huh??? Raegan wouldn't touch the chickens but she was the gate opener and closer. It made her feel very important.

Gone fishin'

A couple of days ago Riley woke up and was asking if daddy could take him fishing. Russ was at work and so I told Riley he could call him on the phone and ask him if they could go fishing together. The next morning (Sat.) they got up at 4:30 and went fishing in Silver Creek lake. Riley did not complain one time about having to get up so early. He was so excited. What a cutie. They caught 2 pretty big fish. Russ BBQed them, and Riley I swear ate a whole fish (SICK). He loved it. I am so glad he got to go and make good memories with his daddy. I love you both:)

HaPpY bIrThDaY rILeY!!!

Riley turned 6 on June 6th. His "golden" birthday I guess. Time has gone so fast. He is such a sweet boy. He is very LOUD and has a HUGE imagination. This year for some reason he wanted a WALL-E birthday. He never really watches the movie--but he thinks he is funny. He had a very good birthday this year. He got totally spoiled. Not by mom and dad but the 12 friends that came to help us celebrate. THANK-YOU everyone. He LOVED all of his gifts. We played games outside and everyone got a water gun. Then we hit a pinata. His favorite gifts were his new cowboy boots and a wolvereen claw. He also LOVES his very own camera. He will take all the pictures--then take the batteries so he can start all over. Thanks Ninna. Now he won't have to play with mommy's camera. I love seeing my kids so happy and enjoying life. Birthdays are so fun and I hope that my kids will feel special on their special days. We love you Riley and are so glad that you are the BIG brother.
