This past week was Fall Break for my boys.
We didn’t do a whole lot. We did go see a couple of movies, and of course, started the kitchen renovation.
On Friday, the boys and I went to a corn maze with Papa and Janet, my sister, Cyndi, and my nephews, Drew and Ryan.
Here is a picture of all the boys together…
Luke, Drew, Ryan, Eli, Adam, and Jonathan
Jonathan and Luke raced rubber duckies with water pumps…
Drew and Adam were racing each other too…
My sweet Jonathan is a great big brother! He was helping Eli with the water pump.
There was a HUGE slide that the boys loved going down.
And my sister, “Aunt CeCe” even loved it! (I was a little scared she was going to bite the dust, but she came flying out and was able to stay on her feet. Pretty impressive for an old lady.)
My very favorite part was this HUGE bouncy thingy! It was so cool to see my kids bouncing with the beautiful landscape behind them.
Cyndi had to get in the action. I was laughing my head off at her.
She coaxed me into joining her, and I will have to say that I felt like I was 12 again!
I was laughing so hard, I couldn’t hardly stand it!
Cyndi and I held hands as we jumped up and down, literally peeing our pants. Cyndi said we should have worn Depends. My mind was flooded with all the laughter (and tears) we have shared together over the years.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE MY SISTER?!!! Seriously, I couldn’t do life without her.
Of course, I had to show her my skills!
Not bad for an almost 41 year old lady, right?! My toes actually made it up to my hands, but Jonathan never could get a perfect shot of it. I think I yelled something like, “I FEEL LIKE A KID AGAIN!” while I was doing these jumps.
Or maybe, “MY PHYSICAL THERAPIST IS GOING TO KILL ME!”
Or was it, “THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVER!!!”
I don’t know what I yelled, but I know how much fun I had. My dad sat on a bench and watched his two daughters act like nuts on that bouncy thingy. We were the only adults on the whole thing…hmmm….
I think my dad enjoyed watching us more than we enjoyed doing it.
Then the boys raced each other on the bikes.
(That’s my Eli and Adam “schooling” my brother’s son, Ryan. Sorry, Blake.)
There is a gigantic corn maze that we went through.
It is the first time Dad has ever gone through a corn maze.
He and Janet were such great sports.
They followed those boys through the whole thing.
And it is NOT easy keeping up with these boys!
Cyndi was breathing pretty hard through the maze. She’s not as young as she used to be. And would you look at her feet! Who wears cute little flats to a corn maze?
My sister, that’s who! I am pleased to announce that she did not get a hair out of place that whole day.
We celebrated as each person came out of the maze!
Eli and Adam….
Ryan and Luke…
Me and Cyndi…
Then we headed back to Papa and Janet’s to roast hot dogs and marshmallows.
Life doesn’t get any better than this!
What is it about the smell of hot dogs roasting on a beautiful fall day?
I sat back and watched my boys having so much fun. I counted my blessings…
My cup runneth over!
My brother, “Uncle Blake” took all the boys on a quick ride before we had to leave.
It was so much fun!
I LOVE FALL!!
And I love fall memories.
Have you been making yours?
Thank you for letting me share mine.
