Bike time

May 30, 2014
We bought Emmitt his first big boy bike!  He rode his bike all over Walmart after we picked it out!  He loves it and his cars helmet. He's such a big boy!

Bailey had to have something new too, so we got her a princess helmet! She's such a big shot and loves doing everything brother is doing!

First camp out of the summer

May 23, 2014
We went up in the afternoon on Friday with the Workman's and found a camp spot at a campground in island park. We set up camp and then the Harlan's came up for the afternoon and evening. We took the four wheelers up to Big Springs and took turns going for rides. The kids loved it! We also looked at the fish and where the spring starts. Then we went back to camp and roasted hotdogs and marshmallows for s'mores and had a fun evening. Both kids slept through the night, which doesn't always happen at home! Here are some pics from the adventure!
Bailey loves getting dirty and really just loves everything about camping!

Addy Workman, Emma Harlan and Emmitt Batt looking over the edge trying to spot some rainbow trout! This made me so nervous even though the water was pretty shallow here!

Webster's Dam

May 17, 2014 At 9:30am we headed to Webster's Dam with Mitch, Mel, Addy, and Brayden Workman and Jason, Dee Dee, Addy, Sydney, and Jackson Paul! It was quite the adventure! We pulled 2 four wheelers on Dave's dads trailer (one belonged to Mitch's brother). We had to do lots of walking with the kids since we had too many people to ride on the four wheelers and some of the paths were too steep for more than one rider, but it was worth it when we got the the bottom and had a picnic lunch in such a beautiful place! We had a great time with our friends and we all survived the hike even though we were a little or a lot sore! That evening we had a BBQ and then left Emmitt and Bailey with babysitters so we could go to Mitch and Mel's to play games! It was super fun!

A big day!

Friday May 16 marks a big day in our lives! It's the day we bought our first truck! Dave and I and the kids are so excited to have something we can pull four wheelers and boats with. We also excited for Dave to have a vehicle that will actually get him to work without dying! It is a 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab. It's perfect because it fits 6! We love it! Emmitt wants everyone we see to look at his new truck!

My uncle Joey teaches me everything

Mommy: Emmitt, who taught you to stand on the swing like that? 
Emmitt: umm, Joey? 

Loving the backyard and mom's new phone!

I'm so excited to have a nicer, faster phone where I can actually take pictures to use in posts! Here are the kiddos enjoying being outside on a cool May evening!
