It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood

Appropriately, on the first week of Fall we felt some Fall weather.

Raynes has a third birthday coming up- and Mama has yet to find a way to incorporate tractors in a safe (and attainable) way.  Poor guy- he may end up with a birthday party consisting of two older sisters and two barking dogs.  And that’s okay too.

‘Doughnuts for Dads’ was last week and can I just say, Kenley has her faux smile down pat!

I surprised Mr. R with a FitBit yesterday so he can feel the addiction (and so I can blow him away with my ‘steps’!)


It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, friends.
