Sooo let me start with Friday night (just know Saturday recap is worth Reading this whole blog for haha) we surprised our parents with pics we got take the week before. Mom was soooo shocked! She LOVED them.. here is one but if you want to see them all click *HERE*
Soooo Saturday, we did some errand running one of them being, borrowing a tool from Grandpa. soo Kobe wasn't being himself, he was quiet and wouldn't talk much and didn't want to get out at Grandma and Grandpa's (My Grandparents) so he sat in the van while I ran in and Jason went into the garage with Grandpa. Well Jason had come into tell me he was ready.. So we got in the van and drove home.. I turned to say something to Kobe and he wasn't in his booster seat. We didn't know he got OUT at Grandma and Grandpa's. While we were inside he got out and went to see what was going on in the garage. We got ALL the way home before I realized he wasn't in the van.. I didn't know if I should have a panic attack or puke... so I got my phone and dialed Grandma's number to make sure he was out in the garage.. sure enough he was... I felt HORRIBLE.. still to think about it makes me upset.. my Grandparents don't live too far away but far enough.. when we got there I hugged him and apologized my butt off.. He looked at me like I was CRAZY... and says "what?! I wasn't scared!" I mean granted it was Grandma and Grandpa's house but STILL. I felt awful.. *sigh*
On a brighter note.. we grilled out Saturday night.. Yummy Steaks!!! Corn on the cob that I "Food Saved" (and froze)over a month ago and was just as good as the day we bought it. Of course fried Zucchini.. still have that Zucchini coming outta our ears LOL.
Kobe is practicing shoe tieing.. he's doing really well.. he got it a few times this morning when we were practicing.. :)
We went down to our spot well as I sat in my lawn chair I look down and my arm is COVERED in these tiny little bugs.. I mean you could barely see them.. I was like OMG look at these bugs on my arm.. Jason came to look and was like "GET THOSE OFF YOU, THOSE ARE TURKEY TICKS" of course I FREAKED hahahaha eww I'm itching just thinking about it LOL there was probably 100 NOT kidding.. I must of brushed up against something.. UGH..

Sooo I FINALLY found my adapter for my cellphone memory card so I can upload cell pics onto the computer. So this is pretty much picture overload lol.
Kobe has mastered "Bubble Blowing" Ugh this was a long hard process LOL but as a wise person said "Practice Makes Perfect"
Kobe writing a sincere "You broke my heart" letter to Mamaw.. Because Mamaw said "No" hahahaha something this spoiled child isn't used to hearing from his mamaw LOL (I know you'll read this Mom and its true hahahaha Love U)
Doing his first ever homework papers.
This weird ??Bug?? it looked like a leaf.. and didn't move forever!
Playing with toys at Dr. Dan's office!
Opened my purse at the grocery store this morning and I found a dirty SOCK in there.. Thank You Kobe! LOL Oooh the joys of having a BOY hahahaha.
You all didn't know I was a mechanic did you?? Yeh that's what I do in my spare time hahahahha KIDDING.. although lets see this morning my van was low on coolant and was whining so needed power steering fluid. Good thing I know how to do somethings :) when it comes to cars!
Wooohooo... We won $50.00 on a scratch off..
The other day at my parents house I caught Kobe walking on this wall that separates my parents drive and the neighbors house. Some of you might be doing the whole *GASP*.. But this actually made me smile. My sister, brother and I ALL walked on this wall ALL the time while we were growing up.. Kinda made my heart feel good.. NEVER did any of us kids fall or get hurt doing it.. and IF I as a child did it, it must not be to dangerous LOL I was not one who lived on the "danger side" lol

Don't let this picture fool you LOL it really is YUMMY!!! My 5 year old didn't want to eat it because it looked like "Bomit" (vomit) but I made him taste it and he ate every bite!
2 pounds of ground beef or turkey
Some dried minced onion cooked with the ground beef
1 can of corn
1c. of chopped or cubed zucchini
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
soy sauce.. I used probably about 1/4 cup but I LOVE soy sauce.. just
give it a "generous" amount
Brown hamburger and minced onions, drain.
Add Spag Sauce, Corn (drained), zucchini, and soy sauce.
Return to stove and "cook" til its all heated up.
I just let mine heat up until the corn bread was done.
The picture doesn't look appetizing but I assure you it IS!!! :)
Jason requested this one..
I just took about 1/4in slices.. dipped them in egg and a lil milk and covered them in flour. They were okay but next time Im going to batter them in cracker crumbs..
In the mean time he rode his bike.. well spent most of the time putting the chain back on.. it was stretched and Jason had to take the wheel off and move it back some.. BTW... don't let your child mess with the chain.. I learned the hard way it WILL cut them.. He had a nice little cut on his finger :(
I'll take pics of the inside.. sometime soon.. I about have all the boxes unpacked :) Its pretty nice inside.. doesn't feel like a trailer except the first night we had the windows open (cause of no a/c) and I felt like I was camping.. I still feel like I'm camping when we are outside with all the trailers around and kids riding bikes all day/night long :) But I like it.. This is coming from a girl who stated before (when I was younger) "I will NEVER live in a trailer" hahaha Funny how ya change when you get older..
