Saturday, part 2

After walking the dogs and eating lunch, we jumped in the car with Uncle Jeff and took off towards Harrah, OK to go pick peaches. Deep Fork Peach Orchard opened that day, and it was our first time to pick our own peaches, so we didn't know what to expect. They only had one type of peach available (Earliglo) to pick, and there was about 4-5 rows of them. It was so fun, except for being in the hot sun, and we all really enjoyed it.
Yum, don't they look delicious?

They gave us a "picker" to get the peaches of the top of the trees. Mikah really enjoyed using it!

This pic shows how HOT it was!

Chris found the perfect peach, with stem and everything.

Showing the fruits of our labor, a box full of peaches. I ate a few on Sunday and even though they were still on the crunchy side, they were extremely sweet and flavorful. After a few days of letting them ripen more, they were some of the best peaches we have sunken our teeth into. SO GOOD!!! I have been eating 2-3 per day and am going to be VERY sad when the last one is gone.

We were SO hot and thristy we HAD to stop at the first Sonic we saw. The kids got slushies and Jeff, Chris and I each ordered Route 44's. We were that thirsty and thankfully it was Happy Hour! :)
We already decided that we would head back to pick peaches soon, but will be bringing water and an umbrella to stand under.

Some friends of ours were out of town over the weekend, so they asked us to come over and make sure their dogs had plenty of food and water and to also take them for walks. Mikah and Gavyn each walked a dog, Chris and I just had to follow behind or in front to make sure they went the right way. They were very excited to walk the dogs (even though it was crazy hot) and here are a few shots of them walking up the driveway. Oops, waited too long. Go back to the end of the driveway and walk up again.
Oops, to far away, one more time please (I'm sure that Bailey and Rydor thought we were CRAZY making them walk up and down the driveway).

I gave my phone to Chris (he is the better picture taker) and he snapped this shot. Perfect. Okay we are done, you can go inside now and cool off. :)

Something's Missing...

After a few months of being loose, Mikah FINALLY lost his first tooth. He was eating yogurt of all things when it happened. I had been trying to get him to eat apples or anything that would help the tooth come out and it came right out with yogurt, go figure. He was/is pretty excited!

Mikah is 6!!!

This little now this (not so) little guy! He turns 6 years old today! Happy Birthday to Mikah! You are a blessing and we love you!

He has spent this week at Basketball camp at Santa Fe High School and was awarded a 1st place trophy, a 2nd place and 3rd place medal. And I'm a horrible mom cause I can't remember why (I'm blaming it on the pregnancy). Will find out on Monday, cause Chris' mom is the principals secratary and she can ask the coach for me!
Sporting his new basketball shoes from his grandparents for his birthday, just in time for basketball camp! We are planning on buying him a basketball goal for the driveway, cause this kid LOVES him some basketball!

Grandpa's Birthday and Family Reunion 2010

Last week we were in TX to celebrate my Grandpa's 90th birthday and have a family reunion of sorts. We didn't get to see everyone, but it was fun seeing my aunts, uncles, cousins and their kids who were able to come! My parents had a housefull as there was 14 people staying in their house, so glad they had enough room for all of us.
I got to meet my new nephew Titus! Jackie (my oldest sister) and I fought over him the WHOLE week, cause you know one of us has to be the Favorite Aunt (and I'm pretty sure it's me). :) This is one of my favorite pics of him, I just love the face he is making - too cute!

This is our family overtaking the Prairie House Restaurant in Roanoke, TX. It was pretty loud with all of us in there and there was 11 kids alltogether.

Jackie planned some great water balloon games, we played Dodge Waterball, Wallyball (Volleyball - we used towels to get the waterballons over the net), Baseball (each person got 2 hits each and you got a point if you hit the ball). Then a huge water ballon fight. I participated in all but the water ballon fight, had to save Lukas from being pummeled!

Afterwards we had cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday to Mikah since his b-day is on the 11th and all the family was together. Gavyn enjoyed the icing, of course!

We spent some time at the Observation area at the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport to watch the planes land and take off. The kids enjoyed climbing on the statues as you can see.

Fuch's, Branson, and Delgado kids with Great-Grandpa.

Flying like airplanes, kind of....

We had a great time with the family and enjoyed a day at Schiltterbahn in New Braunfels and also Sea World in San Antonio as well. It was a very fun and yet tiring week. On the way home, Mikah and Gavyn asked why their cousins had to go back home and were asking when we would see them again. Just might have to make a trip out to UT sometime soon!

Gavyn was plaing quietly in her room, a little too quiet....
Cause this is how she came out of her room. Totally should have checked on her! :)
