Cardboard Boxes are FUN!

Who knew a cardboard box could be so much fun?!?!

Jacob is showing me the letter M. 
Of course, Jackson is right where he always likes to be.


Jacob looking for Jackson...

Jacob decided that the box was his "house" and when he lifted the flap in the back he told me it was his Garage Door.  He proceeded to show me how it went "up, up, up, and down, down, down." 

Adding some finishing touches on the sides...

Proof that he's the artist!

Proud of his work!

After he finished, he HAD to bring his pillow and Deon to hang out with him!

Where's Jacob?  Inside his house of course!
 
So Fun!

Thanks for checking in with us today!  Have a blessed day!

Happy Birthday Chappy!

This past weekend we headed to Atlanta to celebrate Chappy's Birthday.  We drove up on Thursday night so we could have all day Friday with Chappy and Agga and the family.  We made some special memories and started some new traditions along the way.  We played T-Ball, flew airplanes, ate birthday lunches and dinners, and went to a farm on Saturday.  It seemed to go so quickly!  Here's the highlights in pictures...
Daddy and Jacob playing baseball in the backyard at Chappy and Agga's house.  Swing!

Jacob looks so determined here.  He started swinging up and down to hit the ball, so we tried to teach him to swing "Across the body."   I think it worked!

Swinging!!!  With Mommy and Jackson watching!

Baseball with Daddy and Chappy!

Jacob chose one of his two trees that popped up unexpectedly in the backyard...

The boys!  Precious!
Laughing.  What a smile!

Airplanes are always involved somewhere...  :)

Jacob is pointing at a remote control airplane that Uncle Biggie is flying around the backyard, and Jackson is watching it too.  I am the only one looking at the camera!  :)

Agga wanted to start a tradition that the grandchildren make a birthday lunch for Chappy...so here's a picture of Jacob making a cheese sandwich for Chappy. 
Saturday morning we went to breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then headed out to Cagle's Family Farm for some fall fun!

Jacob getting ready to "jump" on the bouncing pillows.
Steady, Steady...
Of course we had to ride the pony named Punkin. 


After the pony rides we walked over to the farm for the Agri-tour.  Jacob saw the tunnel and took off!

Learning about milking cows.

Neither Jacob or Daddy looks very interested in the milking process...  HA!

After the session on milking, we hopped onto the Hayride.  Here's mommy tickling Jacob.  So fun!

We forgot Jacob's sunglasses and he was having a hard time with the sun, so I gave him mine.  So stylish! 

When the hayride was finished we got out and fed the animals.  Here's Jacob feeding the pig!

Yes, I really did this.  Ha!

The family shot.  So hard to get one with everyone looking...

Jacob with Chappy and Agga.  Cute!
 Happy 20th Birthday Chappy!  We had a great time and look forward to many more birthdays to celebrate together!

Sing!

I was able to get these videos of Jacob singing a couple of his favorite songs.  I hope you enjoy!

My favorite part of this one is the "m-m-m-m-p".  We learned a version at our music class that says at the end, "Now I know my ABC's, and it's time to tickle me."  Sorry for my loud voice at the end, apparently I was very close to the microphone...and I'm just loud anyways!  Ha!

The first word is cut off, but you'll get the idea...

Thanks for checking in with us today!  Have a blessed day!

Airplanes?!?!

There's a model airplane club that meets at a local park on Saturdays to fly their planes...Since Jacob is part of the Tuley family, he has no choice but to like planes!  Hee hee.  So, we decided it would be cool to watch them fly around.  Here Jacob is telling us all about the planes...

Say Cheese!

 While we were watching, the owner asked if we'd like to come and look at the planes...so of course we took him up on that!!! 
Oh, what fun!

Hiking!

Last Saturday we went to a nearby park and walked the trails with Jacob and Jackson.  It was a little bit of a challenge making sure Jacob didn't trip over "rocks and roots" but overall it was a great family adventure.  Jacob picked up sticks and walked over bridges (his favorite part) and enjoyed watching Jackson sniff the bushes and trees. 
 Showing us his walking stick!
 You can hardly see us, but Jacob and I are on the bridge!  He's looking the other way!
 This is the best I could get as far as a shot with Jacob and Jackson...They were both too busy to care about mom with the camera!  :)
We're looking forward to more hiking adventures like this in the future!
