Jakob's Baby Shower

We went down to Mena two weeks ago for Traci and Seth's baby shower. She is due in a few weeks and she is ready for baby Jakob to get here. During the shower I learned that I don't know a lot about nursery rhymes as I thought. It's been a long time since I have heard some of them! They got a lot of beautiful items at the shower and baby Jakob will be one stylish baby.

While the girls where at the baby shower the guys built another potato cannon. I don't have pictures of that because I had the camera with me at the shower. I know that Chris posted some pictures of the new cannon that they built with some videos on his facebook page. So, if you want to see them you'll have to check them out there.

Their theme for the baby's room is Winnie the Pooh, Razorbacks and Firefighter decor.Beautiful Mennonite handmade blanketWhat baby doesn't need a Winnie the Pooh cap?

Happy Belated 28th

Birthdays in our household are celebrated and a couple of weeks ago was Chris's 28th birthday. I haven't had a chance to post his pictures yet and unfortunately I had to work on his birthday so we celebrated on two different days. My best friend and her family came up to go play put-put golf and ride some go carts with us. On Chris's actual birthday my parent's took him out to dinner at his favorite local restaurant, Hugo's. If you haven't been to Hugo's before you really need to check it out because the food is really good and the environment is awesome.

Rick's Bakery Birthday Cakes are the best!

Patfest 2009

I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July and got to see tons of fireworks. For the past couple of years we have gone to Patfest to celebrate our friend Pat's birthday and to enjoy some amazing amateur fireworks displays. This year Patfest fell on 4th of July so it made the holiday celebration even better. Our friends who host Patfest asked Chris to build a potato cannon to launch t-shirts and toys into the crowd. I know that most people were worried who knew that Chris was build this, but it all turned out safely and everyone seemed to enjoy it. They also had someone bbq some awesome pulled pork and ribs. If you haven't had pulled pork nachos I would highly recommend them!

Chris & his bazooka:Launching t-shirts can produce smoke and the crowd all wants one!
Who's ready for volleyball?
It turned out to be a beautiful day, not to hot or sticky.These guys do the best amateur fireworks display that I have ever seen. It actually puts some of the smaller towns fireworks displays to shame!
