Mission Accomplished!

We went to Florida this past weekend to find a place to live (for when we move there in 2 months). After 4 long days of looking at places we found a home! We will be renting this 3 bedroom, 2 bath Villa/Townhome for the next year! We are excited about our upcoming adventure. Check out the pictures of our future home! :)

Ours is the building on the right

A big living room

A good size kitchen

Master bedroom

Master bathroom- with two sinks! :)

Screened in patio (which leads out to a golf course). Matt is pretty excited about being right on the golf course!

Apple Picking!

Last week we went apple picking, all three of us along with some of our friends. It was a beautiful day for apple picking and we ended up leaving with 13 lbs. of apples!

Eckert's Apple Orchard- beautiful!

Andrew had to climb up in the tractor and take a ride before we started picking...

Ruby Jane & Andrew looking for the perfect apple to eat...

...will this one do?

YES! Andrew loved eating his apple, and all the rest of the apples on the ground, he called those balls. :)

Ruby Jane found her perfect apple to eat...

...so did Ben. Ymmmmmm!

Matt's 28th Birthday

Matt had off school this year for this birthday so we were able to spend the whole day together. We had a great time. I cooked him a feast for breakfast (biscuits & gravy and eggs). Then we went to a new park, Loan Elk Park. What a neat place. You drive through the park and look for live, wondering elk, bison, dear, etc. We got to see some dear and some bison. After we drove through the park, we played in the woods- a 16 month boy's dream come true- all the sticks and rocks he can get his hands on. We also took a walk through the Bird Sanctuary.
That evening we met some friends for dinner at one of Matt's favorite restaurants, Five Guys. Then they came over for homemade chocolate chip cookies. I think Matt had a nice day and really enjoyed his 28th birthday.

Andrew helping Daddy open his birthday present- a commentary on Romans.


Playing in the woods, Peek-a-Boo!

My sweet boy!

Checking out the Bison with Daddy (look how Andrew has his arm around Matt, so sweet).

This was way cool, seeing all the bison.

Andrew feeding the chicken some corn kernels.

Papa Tom, check out that deer. Matt walked right up to it to take this picture. The deer did not move!
