Police Horse Barn

I absolutely love all the free play groups the moms from my church get together to do. 
I think getting out is as important to my sanity as it is developmentally for my children. 

A week and a half ago we all went to the police horse barn and therapeutic riding center. Official name I really have no clue. 
Lorelei loved all the dirt and thought it was one big sandbox. Hunter was distraught with how dirty Lorelei was getting. : ) It was perfect family bonding time. 

My kids absolutely enjoyed themselves. Hunter's only disappointment was there wasn't cows as well. For some reason he is determined to ride a cow. Never teaching this kid about Rodeos!!!! No mother wants her son to be a bull rider. 
Lorelei was quite excellent at getting both of the officers to pick her up as she is so quick to slip my grip. She makes me feel like a bad mother with how quickly she disappears from me. If only they had baby shock collars. (joking joking...don't take me too seriously: )

Kansas Day

Lorelei is such a personality. I am having to baby proof things I never even had to consider with my sweet Hunter. She is growing like a weed. (I know it doesn't go with the Kansas day theme, but I had to stick her in here somewhere. : )

So Kansas day is coming up this Sunday which happens to be my birthday. ; ) Now that Hunter is in preschool he get his own Kansas day celebration. He dressed up reluctantly as a cute little cowboy wearing his daddies cowboy hat and sporting his daddies old horse. The vest was my brother's as a kid and the boots are from his cousin Benny. Talk about some heritage in one outfit right there. : )

 Oh funny story it wasn't until 2nd grade that I figured out this big parties we were having at school on my birthday wasn't really for me. Yes I was crushed. What a little narcissistic child I was. lol
Something that I absolutely adore about Hunter is how he so easily makes friends and how important they become to him. He has an old soul. ; )

Happy Kansas Day to you all. : )

Happy Birthday Hunter and Anton

Hunter at his preschool party. 
Yesterday Hunter turned 4 and my husband turned 30. My poor husband gets left out on his birthday now since he shares it with Hunter. He didn't have much of a celebration for such an important birthday. We are taking a date night next Friday to try to celebrate his Birthday. 

All his buddies at pump it up
Hunter as always has a fantastic Birthday. Thursday he had a party at his preschool which was perfectly adorable. He loved having his turn being the center of attention. He has been asking when it would be his turn for his birthday thinking that we were just leaving him out. 

 I love how easily excited Hunter gets. Almost all of his buddies got to go to his party. Before the party Hunter would list off all his friends that he wanted to come, then after his party Hunter would tell me all who was there over and over. The kids all had a good hour and a half running, climbing, bouncing, and going down slides. Mommie and Lorelei even went down the slide a couple of times.
The cake. We had Thomas, James, and Percy cookies as well.
Hunter's man request for his birthday was that he had a Thomas cake. He was so thrilled with his cake.

Getting ready to blow out the candles
After plenty of Jumping we all went to the Party room where Hunter got a great opportunity to be the center of attention. He absolutely loved everyone singing him Happy Birthday. His pure bliss face always makes his parties worth it!

Everyone was so generous in giving Hunter fantastic presents. He got lots of Thomas and Friends, Lightening McQueen, and Dinosaur Train stuff which made Hunter enthusiastically thrilled. We got him his Party and one small train as his present. I think he is definitely pleased with having a party instead of a bunch of presents from Mom and Dad.

"Thank you everybody!"
Sunday was actually Hunter's and Tony's birthday. We had a nice relaxing lunch at Papa's with cake that Hunter and Mommie made together. We blew out candles four times since Hunter and Tony thought it was so much fun. Then we opened presents from family. I think the kid is spoiled. At least Hunter remains a thoughtful sweet little boy. 
Anton remains an amazing father and wonderful husband. 

Happy Birthday to my two most important men!!!
