Labor Day Weekend

This past weekend we went up to our friends (Randy & Linda Bird) house and visited with them and their son Brett and his family. They live on 50+ acres and have a beautiful place. I love going up there and wish we lived closer. I must say it was the most relaxing weekend I have had in a long time. We went to church, ate and just hung around outside. Doodle had brought some of the fish that he had caught and cooked them Sunday evening. They were really good. The girls enjoyed playing with Jackson and Kelton and riding around on Uncle Randy and Aunt Linda's golf cart. Ryleigh rode Jackson's little tractor until I thought the wheels were going to fall off. We hated to leave, but all good things must come to and end. It takes us 5 hours pulling the trailer and my allergies had started bothering me yesterday morning and only got worse as we drove home. Needless to say I was glad to get home and looking forward to going inside, watching some wrestling and laying around. Yes, I watch wrestling...it is just a given that on Monday night at 8:00, Doodle and I watch wrestling together. I know, how romantic. However, when we got inside it was 99 degrees in the house. Sometime over the weekend, the outside unit decided to quit working!!! UUUGGGHHH! Thank goodness we have the trailer, we just all loaded back into it and slept another night. I am waiting for the AC guy to get here now to see what the deal is. I am PRAYING that we do not have to buy another unit....On that note, I will leave you with some pics that I took of the girls while I was sitting on Randy and Linda's porch enjoying the day and the view....

One of their many horses...I think between Rand, Linda, Brett & Rachel, they have around 15.
The church that Randy and Linda started, Higher Trails Cowboy Church. It is right across the street from their place.
I will leave you with one more pic. Yesterday before we left to come home, we all went to Chic-fil-a to eat lunch. Ryleigh had gotten a kids meal and inside the kids meal was some kind of secret decoder and a book. Now, tell me, how many GROWN MEN does it take to figure out a toy from a kids chic-fil-a meal??? Apparently, it takes 3.
