my farm birthday!!

Our favorite weekends at the Farm, are the ones when we're all there! The Victery's made it down and we made it up for a nice, relaxing wknd there. We drove up Friday night, while Kourtney and Joe went to Dry Beaver for dinner! for some sweet steak :) Saturday morning NaNa and PaPa came over and we got some good chat time with them! On these kind of weekends, the only excuse to leave the house is to fish! Ofcourse, JR and Joe did just that...some Saturday afternoon fishing...in a monsoon. For most people slamming rain would obviously deter you from sitting out in the middle of the pond trying to weasel a fish onto your lure. Nope, not them. They came home soaking wet, but super excited at the 35 fish they caught in 2 hours!! Big ones too!

That evening was my birthday party!! The babies always need a party when it's someone's birthday! Nancy made my favorite meal, country-style ribs, corn, fried potatoes, and Texas Toast. Oh my, it was so good. After dinner it was present time! I got the most wonderful gifts from everyone, especially my homemade necklace and bracelet from Emma. I will need to post pics later of all my gifts! I got some awesome presents from our trip to New Mexico, which ofcourse turned out to be the best trip of my life!!!

For dessert we had homemade apple pie, with apples that Ronnie had picked, dough Emma made, and a Mississippi Mud Pie by Kourtney and alot of rain!! Oklahoma got drenched that night with a tropical storm?! Weird!! Monsoon style rains, and crazy winds!

The next morning we had some cleaning up to do! We had a pork chop lunch, after some yard work, and swimming with the kids! It was an awesome family weekend, and we're always sad to leave everyone :( We'll be back up though in two weeks, because we chose to do our engagement pictures up there with Amy from The Brownstone...so we'll see you guys soon!!

Thanks again to everyone for my wonderful birthday party!! I love you so much!
