This weekend I spent time with some of my favorite people - other than my husband and kids.
One of my best friends got married to an awesome man, who is wisking her away to Italy...needless to say, he is not one of my favorite people. I am so happy for Heather, but will miss her!!! They should return to the states in 2 years (?) so in the mean time I am counting down the days!

To start off the weekend we threw her a little Bridal shower with these yummy cupcakes
and pretty flowers...

Reed was a trooper, and the only boy. ( I have put in my request for Ryan to make me 3 chairs like the one was the cutest little rocking chair!)

We practiced walking down the aisle...did I mention he was the ringbearer...

Bailey just hung out!

We cuddled with Aunt Chel, and the butterbean in her belly...

This is the only pic I got of my family at the sad! I didn't even get a picture of Reed in his tux because I was so consumed with making him behave and get down the aisle!

Me with the bride and groom

It is weird that they are pregnant and I am not...but I still love those sweet friends!!

First dance...I was crying!!

Dairy Farm, Shovels and Spades

This past week Reed and I went on a field trip to a local goat farm. We learned all about the goats, saw them get milked and even got to pet a few. It was fun to see him taking everything in. His favorite part was getting to pet the goats and see the pigs, but I had put my camera away by that point :(

For Easter I got each of the kids little pots with seeds of different flowers. Each kiddo had a different flower so we can tell them apart: sunflowers, gerber daisies and zinnias. So far they are doing well and were transplanted outside yesterday.

I think it is SO neat to see the seed, in this instance a sunflower seed, sprout.

The boys also recieved their very own shovel and spade in their baskets (which may be bigger than my own), and boy were they excited to go use their tools!

Daddy helped...

While Bailey flirted with the camera! I sure do hope their little flowers bloom!!
