A beautiful Saturday in the woods.

Daddy had to work today. We really miss Saturdays with daddy. It was such a pretty day that we had to get out and do something. We decided to go to Sharp Springs for a tromp through the woods and hunt for a couple of letterboxes.

The woods were so pretty with the fall leaves and the sunny day. Great time for a few pictures and a picnic lunch next to the wetland area. Thanking God for all the beauty around us.

Somehow we found our treasure. They were hidden along a disc golf course.

Swing from vines, playing with sticks, collecting rocks & acorns & leaves...

We found a lost disc in the woods so Reed spent a lot of time trying go get it in the goal or whatever that thing is called.

Ramblings of a boy.

Reed comes in the house with a chunky rock. He took in the bathroom and washed it. Then he said, "my rock is all clean for the contest." "What contest," I asked. Reed said, "The rock contest. You know the one in Nashville where Bon Jovi is going to be. I'm going to take my rock to the contest. And Bon Jovi is going to be there and well maybe I shouldn't take my rock because someone might get hurt at the contest, right momma? Maybe I won't go to the concert. I might get a headache. We could just have a concert here on my birthday when I turn 6. We could have the rock contest, then Bon Jovi could sing, then we'll eat cake and after that we'll eat lunch...then it will be dinner time. Then I will get my pigeons and we will have a pigeon contest. Right momma?"

Came across this picture.

It's one of my favorites so I had to share. It's from Cate's 6th birthday.

And then there was this one from Christmas 2007.

And this one just makes me smile. (9/2006)

Reed Quotes #12

Picked up the kids from school. As soon as we walk in the door Reed heads straight to his little bag of Halloween candy and picks out a yummy chocolate. He says, "mom, can I have this, huh mom, can I?" I say, "I thought we were going to make popcorn for a snack." He says as he is opening the candy, "you can make it while I eat this."

I love that boy.
