Gracyn Goes Fishing

The end of July is always Clint's family reunion. This year, his parents decided to rent a house in Cotter and stay a couple of days. We got a place right on the White River. Of course, we had to do some fishing. We bought Gracyn a Disney Princess fishing pole. She could not wait to get to fishing! We got there Thursday night and walked down to the river and let her put her feet in the water. It was so cold! The next day, Clint and I went to Wal-Mart to get our fishing licenses. On our way out, it started rained the entire day! Poor Gracyn didn't get fish that day.

The next day we drove about an hour to Salem, AR to the family reunion. Gracyn enjoyed playing with her cousins and everyone enjoyed meeting Cole. Every year, everyone makes a quilt block. His grandma then pieces it together and has it quilted. It's then raffled off at the reunion.  His grandma passed away this past October so this was the last quilt she made. Gracyn was the one that drew the winning ticket. And the winning ticket was....Gracyn Thomas! We were so happy we won the last quilt his grandma made!

That evening we finally got to go fishing! Gracyn is a pro at casting! I was actually very impressed! Too bad none of us caught anything. She was so upset and cried about not catching a fish! She wanted to call Grandpa Peevy. Once he told her that their are days he doesn't catch anything she seemed to feel better. Later that evening, Peepaw built a fire and we roasted marshmallows and made s'mores. We had a fabulous time! One thing is for sure...this girl is a country girl at heart! She loves water, dirt, sticks, and rocks.

COle is 1 Month Old!


Cole is one month old!!! He really doesn't do anything besides eat, sleep, and dirty his diapers.  He is eating about every 2 hours and waking every 2-3 hours in the night to eat. So far, he is a good long as he isn't in his car seat. He is not a fan. He will cry until we get moving on the interstate, then he goes to sleep. If we get off an exit and sit at a stop light he will wake up and start crying again. I'm hoping he gets use to it soon.

4th of July Weekend

We decided not to do much for the 4th of July since Cole was so young. We got snow cones then parked off College to watch the fireworks that they let off at the mall. We bought sparklers so Gracyn could let those off. The next day, Clint smoked a pork butt and we had the Bunzel's and the Grise's over for dinner. This was the first time Cole and Brooks got to meet!

Loving the sparklers!

Cole is just chilling.

Things are going to get interesting with these four kiddos!
