Superheros And Horse Riding

This past weekend was my nephews birthday party. No they are no twins but their birthdays are like two weeks apart so my SIL like to do one big birthday party and to be quite frank, I do not blame her.

So the theme for their party was superhero. Man I wish I had boys so I could do cool themes like this. You can only be a princess so many times before you want to move on.

The party was so much fun and very hot as the whole thing was outside on my FIL’s farm. I love that farm. They have a ton of land and it is so peaceful unlike the loud suburbs we live in. To start things off we indulge ourselves in watermelon, funny cut shaped PB&J sandwiches, chips, and deli meat pinwheels. My SIL knows how to party.

After we ate, we began to to tractor rides around in the field.

And horse rides for the kids…

and adults..meaning me.

Then we had some really good cake.

I think my nephews had a great party. I am looking forward to spoiling them this coming weekend at the beach.

Is This A House Or A Hotel?

One of the things about having a new house is that it seems that if people know you have the extra room, they constantly want to stay with you. I might not have the right to complain and this may seem more like a rant than anything. Since my wife and I bought our house, we spent maybe six nights alone.

Please don’t get me wrong but I love my family and my in-laws. My in-laws have been more of a family lately then my own but I feel like I need to put a “No Vacancy” sign outside my window. My wife and I would like to have sometime together on weekends to do things with our daughter as a family. We don’t need her family there every weekend to dictate what our plans are. For once I would like to come home on a Saturday or even during the week and no one be there that is not living there on an everyday basis.

Here is a list of things I would like to do in my empty house

1. Walk around naked

2. Drink a beer and watch football

3. Watch The Walking Dead anytime I want

4. Take a nap

5. Take my wife on a date on a Saturday night

6. Go on a family picnic in the park

7. Spend the entire day in my underwear.

8. Take K-Dub to the Pumpkin Patch

9. Wash our cars

10. Walk around naked (Think about that again before you sit on my couch)

If you are a member of our family and you are reading this, please don’t be offended cause we love our time with you  and you are awesome. We just need to have some time to be a family. We want you to come over but can you do us both a favor and call first? You never know what you might walk into.
