Image
Sunday is meant to be a day of rest and relaxation and one of the ways that I rest is to spend time in Nature. I try to spend a least a little bit of time in nature each week. I have decided that I will use Sundays to share the photos of my nature adventures each week just as a way to relax and share the beauty that is God's creation with all. I hope you enjoy!

Friday Night Football

Image
Last night, I took the kids to see my brother play in his last home football game of his high school career. My brother Josh plays football for the Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets. The kids were so excited to go see Uncle Josh play. (He is number 57.)



Last night was also Senior Night where the seniors got introduced before the game and got to walk across the field with their parents. Josh walked with our mom, dad and our sister. It was pretty cool to see. (Unfortunately my mom had to leave before the game started as she was sick with a stomach bug and had been throwing up since early that morning).


The kids loved the football game. They also loved being able to eat dinner at the field. Hot dog for Rebecca, pizza for Ben and nachos for Jacob. LOL


The first half of the game was great, as the Yellow Jackets got 4 turnovers but the game was tied. 

During halftime, the marching band put on their senior showcase. This included a "Script Ohio" at the end. (If you know anything about colleg…

Jacob had a birthday party on Sunday

Image
On Sunday, we had a little birthday party/ get together for Jacob's 8th birthday. 



He requested a Seattle Seahawks cake and I aim to please. The eye on that darn Seahawk was a pain to get right. LOL Jacob loved his cake though! 
My parents and siblings and sister-in-law and niece and nephew came over to celebrate Jacob with cake and ice cream. 





Jacob got sports cards, sports magazines, and some needed clothes for winter (long sleeve shirts especially).








He said it was the best birthday party ever! And that makes this mama's heart happy.
