Playing Catch Up

Instead of doing the weekend recap post I thought I'd post some pictures from last week and our weekend fun.

Aunt Brenda came over to play....
This is my youngest sister:)

I don't know if she will be coming back anytime soon. haha!
Finley is learning to crawl....

Finley learning to walk... hold on not too fast!!!

way too much shopping on etsy.com

Faith faking being sick just so she can use the "special" pillow case, teddy bear and tray I made. They only get to use them when they are sick.

Father/Son rocket contest with our homeschool group

They got 3rd for highest flying rocket! Powered by vinegar and baking soda!

Some of the competiton.
The rockets had to be made from scratch.

smallest rocket (made from a film tube)..our good friends Brian and Ian.

The boys went paint balling with some neighbors,friends and Uncle Johnny.
Austin had a blast and got blasted:(
He was proud to show me all his wounds.

Now who would shoot a poor 9 yr old on the field? haha! He was playing with the big boys and loved every minute of it.

and I have to show off my garden.

this is my next project:
a hen house

and a play house for the girls

They don't call my dad Handy Randy for nothing. I'm sure he could whip these right up. I'll pay him with all the avocadoes he wants!

I really don't know what I'm doing. The tree's were here when we moved in and the garden well...I'm praying things don't die. I've been reading garden blogs for info and tips.

Never a dull moment at the Ryan house. I am sure Dad will start on the playhouse any day now. Does he need a ladder? ha ha

I love etsy too :) I can't believe Finley standing in that picture!! Kyndall is crawling EVERYWHERE and pulling up on EVERYTHING. I forgot how scary it was once they're mobil!

LOL comedy! You should just see if everyone will take avocados! :)
That isnt a bad idea with the way money is in the economy right now.

Love the pics, what a great idea with the pillow and bear.

I can't believe Finley is standing already, Time is flying by...
