Spend the weekend with me...

I think we all can agree my picture taking skills are lacking-proof being my moon pix that had you all thinking my camera has a dirty mind-or was it you with the dirty mind,because I clearly saw the moon...i kid i kid...I know they sucked...

I am determined to figure out my camera, so I present to you my weekend in review in picture form...we had a BUSY weekend...

Saturday was another cheer competition-the girls took 1st place in the Varsity division YAY! RAH! SHISH-KA-BOBS!(my lame attempt at rhyming)

Okay I have a long way to go-even though this is kinda out of focus-you can clearly see oldest bean

Still out of focus....
ahhh the ever glamorous glowing wolf eyes
Red eye- my camera never used to do red eye


After the cheer comp-we stopped at a lil hamburger place on Peoria(Brookside) Named Claud's-

It is clear I did not take these two pix-they are clear and in focus-lilest bean took them-she is always trying to show me up...

And now I return you to more out of focus blurry pix....
Sunday we went to the farm to celebrate Ena's Birthday-The farm where I grew up-it holds such special memories of making mud pies on the lone slab/piece of concrete sidewalk,playing in the hay barn,digging up potatoes in the garden,playing with my sisters and cousins-memories that I hope my city-fied beans will absorb...
Happy Birthday Ena-you are BEAUTIFUL!
Just look how simply farm life is...NO dishwasher and we ordered pizzas from Pizza Inn-OH the memories of Pizza Inn
The faloozie aka Rebecca aka my sis and papa george
My Uncle Tommy was there
The boys did some duck hunting
Chad brought clay pigeons and everyone had fun shooting some skeet
Oldest bean has form I tell ya...
The big boys and their toys...Pistols,AR15's,revolvers,glocks,shotguns,20 gauge semi autos-you name it they had it...and they were out to see who was a better shot...
My cousins Michelle and Renee showed up-ya see in the country you can squat and pee just about anywhere...i kid i kid...they were holding up the hay bails
So while the mens folk were seeing who's was bigger,better,faster,longer us girls went on a walk
We tresspassed...cuz that's how we roll
Arm N Arm is my cousin michelle and her son Zac
Oh lilest bean had a blast with these plants I forget the name geesh...
lilest bean and her cousin
Renee,Macy and Colin
We tresspassed some more up this GIANT mountain, okay okay BIG hill, pfffft slightly slanted ground
Phew we made it to the top
Just some shots around the farm
The doggers...Molly,ginger and freckles
It's the loch ness monster...oh wait it's just NOT Sawyer trying to get his duck decoys
My confession for today: We had a WONDERFUL weekend!!!! Thanks for sharing it with me

  12. Okay, I seriously need to help you with your camera. You need to email the kind of camera you have.

    I love farm life. My grandparents had a farm and it was just so much fun to play there.

    It looks like you all had the BEST time this weekend. Memories...sweet memories!

  16. Very cute pictures, I love the ones from the country. I grew up on a farm and it is so peaceful. The cheer pics take me back to my high school days, I so loved competitions and football games and wrestling matches.

  24. I just got a new camera for Christmas and I had a really hard time with all the settings it has. Finally I just started using auto setting unless I had to do a close up or a night scene.
    Sounds like you and your family had a great time!! Woooo hooo FUN! Birthday, Pizza, shooting.. what else could you ask for?

  25. We had a good weekend too. Those cheerleading photos make me nostalgic for my daughter's high school events...I didn't think I'd miss all of the hubub but I honestly do a little bit now that she's in college.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, I miss OK soooooo much! Love all of the farm pics.

  27. They are called Cattails and I love them. Those were great photos of the fluff flying all over. I had family in Nebraska and my great aunt used to have us kids dig up the potatoes - I guess kids, being lower to the ground, can dig potatoes easier because my Dad said it was always the kids job lol

    Congrats to your cheerleader!!

  28. It totally reminds me of my parents place - the skeet shooting and all! Looking at all your pictures makes me nostalgic for home!

  33. Cheerleading, Claud's Hamburgers, visiting, more eating, shooting, wandering around. Sounds like a good time to me!

    Looked to me like you were getting better with the camera as time went on.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You have some really great shots!

  35. O oved cattails when I was a kid! I think your farm pictures were great!

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a wonderful weekend you had and I don't know why you think your picture skills are weak. You did great!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice pics - looks like you had a great weekend. I would trade with you in a heartbeat.

    Later...

  38. I especially love those pictures down by the water, looking through the reeds or whatever those things are!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great pictures! I grew up on a farm too, but I don't know anyone with a real farm now. It would be cool to visit. We do have hay bales though, so I can pretend our ten acres is a farm:) Everyone looks like they are having a blast. (I found you from Jills blog).

    ReplyDelete
  40. um I think the plants are cattails right? Did someone already guess that? Sheesh you get sooooooo many comments I can't even read thru them all. That farm looks so downhome, so fun and so simple. Life should be like that, good thing you have that to share with the beans so they don't think it's all concrete, malls, ipods, cars and "stuff" like that. Great farm shots too - you did take those right?

  42. Love the pics! Looks like you had some great family fun : ) I LOVE Claud's!!! Thanks for letting me know about the nomination from Oklahoma Bloggers. I nominated your blog so I'm hoping your name is on the "board" as well.
    Looking forward to seeing you Friday. I am going to see you Friday right?!?
