Anniversary Weekend Pictures.

Friday through Sunday my husband and I stayed out at our family camp. My sister in-law and her family stayed with us. It was a break we all needed.

The day started with a snow that had me mad – because I don’t have a bow to hunt with during bow season – but anxious to get my husband out in his stand.

But we needed food for the house and camp. So off we went.

One of the things I love about living where we do is, we have miles of nothing but the big woods between towns, it’s beautiful and less stressful than a the big towns and cities.

Friday night my husband and I road in with our daughter after shopping for all of our splurge foods.

I love taking the road in, it’s always breath taking during the four seasons.

Saturday we took a stroll out to my deer blind, check the camera. Hunting season has really become our Family activity.

I had to see how my mock scrape was doing too, I need to give it a little longer before I decide, if you would like to TRY this, comment below and I’ll hook you up. 😉

Shortly after I shot my first grouse!

Perfect head shot, my husband got two, and now together we have five.

Enough for a meal!

Our first wedding anniversary weekend was a success I would have to say.

JUST LIFE,A HAPPY LIFE

The last few days have been crazy, warm weather is here to stay I believe
My sister came to stay with us last Friday. She came over this way for her son’s tonsillectomy. It was so nice to have her around. Her, my little sister, and I had not been together in 10 years. It was nice to be around the two of them again.
The weekend came in with my sister at my side. My husband and I of course drug her down the back road riding and looking for a Turkey. We didn’t see anything, just the female that has been hanging around the highway for some time now.
It really sucks living in an area that doesn’t really have the best Turkey population….

Well Monday rolled around and I had to say my goodbyes to my sister. She left and had my interview with Tinkergarden , this company I found has a goal of getting children outside again, well that went excellent. I am not in the last phase of the interviewing process, I really hope it all works out.

Tuesday Casidy – my little girl- and I went over to my Mother – in-laws house. We started our visit woth finger paint and build bird houses with my niece. Neither one of them had much experience with finger paint, so it was a sight to see.

W

hile the paint was drying on the piece of bird house the girls decided they wanted Grammy to catch chickens to pet. They had a ball.

When we headed home I had to kick myself in the butt. We launched a cool new program called 2B Mindset. I had to get it out and let people know about it. I am SO excited about this program and it is really important to me to let all I encounter know about it. It is a weight loss program that includes NO exercise. This means I can help MORE people. So I went LIVE on facebook and explained.

Wednesday was a run to town day. I had to get a package out to Fedex, and I had to get wipes. The day kind of turned into a girls day with my little. She was spoiled. I got her dump truck, McDonald’s for lunch, and she had a wolf in her happy meal.

I also found myself a really cool clock that was on sale.

Thursday I chilled at home and focused on getting some laundry done. Later that evening I helped out at our local schools Track event. They had me judging the pole jumps, and though that wasn’t my event in track, it made me miss my teenage years badly. I am at the weird age where teens think I am old and other adults older than me still talk down to me or brush things off like I am a teen. I watched a teen go by walking all cool because they had keys, not I wish I could feel that again. I suppose we all go through this phase in our lives though.

It’s Friday now, and my weekend plans had to be cancelled so I have no idea what this weekend will bring, maybe a little hunting or a trip out to deer camp? gathering wood? We shall see…
Have a beautiful weekend y’all.

Opening Day of Turkey Season 2018

Well, we couldn’t find a babysitter, so we loaded up the truck with little miss in her car seat.

First back road we took road riding…the loggers ruined anything being back there. So we ventured down another road, stopped the truck and called a little.

Nope, nothing.

My husband said, lets go and see if my brother has something in his back yard.

I said alright!

So two hours later we found ourselves at my brother in-laws.

My husband helped tinker with their side-by-side while I sat and chatted with my brother in-law’s Fiance.

“gobble, gobble.” I heard them

I went into the truck and got the caller.

I called…

“gobble,gobble.”

Bart, the dog’s ears popped up, so I knew I wasn’t hearing things.

Called again.

Nothing.

Well, they must have went towards the neighbors. We all thought.

I chatted some more, we looked at a boat they wanted to sell us and their new flooring.

I’ll admit to peeking out the window here and there.

No Turkeys.

After our little visit we headed back homebound, stopped picked the baby up her milk, and then supper.

My husband says, lets check by the potatoe fields.

We had to drop a treat off for his mom anyway, so I said alright! – not that I would dispute it.

We stopped by my mother in-law’s and changed a diaper, the neighbor ,who has a farm down the road from us, happened to be there.

He tells us he saw black smoke coming from in behind our house.

Uh-oh. Jumped in the truck and headed home….to find the other neighbors were just burning their grass

No Turkey for me.

Hopefully before the season is over I can go sit somewhere. But for now, well..parenthood.

5 Miles Of Fresh Air

We woke up this morning with the sun shinning, the sky is blue, and the air clean. So we did what we always do on a gorgeous day. We took advantage of it.

Matt loaded up the truck with snowshoes, the backpack, gun, and vest. I gathered all of Casidy’s things and got her ready. Off we went out to the families camp.

Once we got there I helped casidy get dressed in her snow pants, sunglasses- boy did she think she was the coolest girl around with sunglasses on- and jacket. Matt and I then strapped our snowshoes on. And!… I bet you can guess it…

Yep, we started walking. Shotgun with one of us- you know, just in case we see a bunny rabbit of course – and casidy with the other.

We walked about 2.5 miles out to the cabin, then 2.5 miles back.

🎵Over the swamp and through the woods, to the camp we go.🎵

It goes without fail that I fall, I’m the clutz. It only happened three times though!

Taking turns trading gun and our daughter (who is to little for snowshoes.) We made it to the cabin.

There were plenty of tweety birds and pheasants that were out and about.

As for hunting, we saw quite a bit of rabbit tracks,but no rabbits.

After shoveling ice off the deck, a snack, and a diaper change. We headed back.

Now, we are home. Dinner is in the oven. Matt is moving the living room around and me,lol. I am trying to type this up and in the way. So, he is just picking me up and moving me along with the furniture.

Soon we will head out again for our weekly visit with our Aunt and Uncle at Matts parents place.

Thank God for the gorgeous walk . I love this land. I love my family. It was a perfectly spent day.

So, that’s this redheads families Saturday. How did you spend your St. Patrick’s day?
