Fall break is coming up and we are ready for a break. I'm not sure what we are going to do but I'm ready for a relaxed schedule. I'm thinking apple orchards, hiking, maybe a little road trip, possibly some fishing. I just want to be outside. No homework, no computers, no set in stone schedule.
Just goofing around...we're pretty good at that!

Driving the golf cart is Brandon's favorite thing to do. Well it was until he hit a tree. Someone wasn't watching where he was going and paying more attention to what his "bubba" was doing. The tree is ok, a chunk of bark was taken off. Brandon's fine too, a little bruised and tear stained, but ok.
And Nathan loves the old tractor. He has it all figured out...he said so anyway. He's practically a grown man so he knows what he's talking about.
They start school in just a couple of days. They are excited to get to see their friends but not ready for the homework. Nathan is taking Spanish, honors English, Freshman Algebra, US History and 8th grade Science. He's also in Band, which is perhaps his favorite thing ever.
Brandon has a male teacher this year and he is super excited. 4th grade is going to be awesome!!

Morning glories seem to make Brandon very happy. He examined every new bud and smelled every bloom with a smile spread so wide it covered his entire face.

For father's day we ventured down to my grandparents home and spent the afternoon with my parents in the orchard. Brandon drove the golf cart around in circles over and over and over again. We all sat around talking and eating and laughing. It was a great afternoon. Hot and sticky but fun.
My mom wanted a picture of the four of us, but Brian had other plans. He doesn't like his picture being taken and he loves messing with my mom.
The orchard is one of my favorite places on earth, especially with my family.

I love this man of mine.
He makes me laugh every single day,
he kisses me in front of the kids to make them gag,
he keeps us safe,
he looks so damn good in his uniform,
he's an amazing father,
he loves me for me,
he does the dishes on occasion,
he makes the best coffee,
he sounds like Johnny Cash when he sings,
he's teaching the boys how to be men by example.
I love his mocha eyes and crooked smile.
I even love him when he dumps a cup of ice cold water on me when I'm in the shower.
(not so much, but it's still funny, sort of. After I stop screaming)
He has a heart of gold.
He's my absolute favorite.
He makes me so very happy to be his wife.

Nathan's cake this year was a sweet one. Dark chocolate cake with a coconut filling. Topped with a coconut icing and oozing chocolate ganche. It was good, but it was extremely sweet. Just like him!
