Memorial Day Weekend

For our three day weekend, we spent the first part getting ready for a garage sale. Steven loved cleaning out the attic and moving all of our unused stuff out. He was not a happy camper, and I must admit he worked his tail off as usual. However, I am very excited to be getting rid of so much since we have baby #2 coming in the fall.

Knowing all the hard work Steven was going to do, we arranged to go see my Dad at Grand Lake for the last part of the holiday weekend. Normally, Mason is not the traveler. He doesn't sit still for long, but he is growing up. He didn't fuss at all on the way there or back. Not to mention he had a blast being outdoors, and getting to try out all new adventures. He was very content since he had new territory to explore. Here's a glimpse at some of his adventures while we were there...

Getting to drive Papa's tractor

Riding his 4 wheeler up and down the hill.

Eating all the goodies Mommy doesn't let him have.

(That would be a chocalate chip stuck on his face.)


Chasing the Miniature Yorkie around.


Driving the boat and pushing all the buttons.
As you can clearly see, Mason had a wonderful time. He's growing up so fast, and becoming so independent. I now realize that I am ready for another little one. (Someone please refer me to this blog when I am completely exhausted with 2 kids!)

Rooster Days and The "Face"

This year, the only thing I wanted for Mother's Day was to go to Rooster Days and eat all things fried. I don't know why I do it to myself, but I love me some corn dogs! I always end up paying for it later, but OH WELL! It tastes so yummy going down. However, the food wasn't the best part, it was watching Mason experience his first carnival type setting. He was really intrigued by the petting zoo. For him, we really should call it the 'I'll stand back and look at you' zoo. He wasn't so interested in touching the animals, but eventually he warmed up to touch the goats.
Be sure to look closely at the picture, it's the closest thing to a smile you'll see in this post!

We also went to the morning parade for Rooster Days. Mason really liked watching the bands go by and the mini cars driven by the Adkar Shrine people.

Okay, now on to my whole purpose of this post...Mason's new face. The look your are about to see can be seen by anyone who looks in his direction. The most amusing part of the face is it looks just like Steven's when he's irritated. So, I thought I'd post it for everyone to see. Be sure to notice how 'happy' he looks on his pony. I just love it! I have my own mini white version of Steven. Maybe our next child will be a mini Puerto Rican version of me!

Mason not too sure about the pony.
(For all of you wondering, Steven is standing right by him.)
I do have one more thing to add...I HAVE 5 DAYS OF WORK LEFT!!!! Yahoo for SUMMER BREAK!
