Goats, Kids, and Family


We had such a busy Mother's Day weekend! We kicked it off by welcoming our two new kids to the family- Lilo and Stitch (2 month old Pygmy goats)! Yes, this was really my Mother's Day present from Jared. I was so excited because I have been wanting some goats ever since we moved into this house with a pasture in our backyard. This picture is my entire family-minus my dad, but nonetheless every grandkid and brother and sister- Almost never happens! And I think everyone is actually looking! Oh wait- Parker is looking down, oh well. We had a wonderful barbeque on Mother's Day in our backyard with my family, Tabby and her family, and our friends BoJ and Jen Cheney. It was so nice to have everyone come and celebrate all the moms.
This is Stitch the brother goat. He likes to butt our dog Beasley when he gets too close.
And this is Lilo, the little sister goat. Isn't she adorable?

Shout out to my beautiful mom on Mother's Day! She is the sweetest, most loving, caring, unselfish person in the world and I love her more than anything. I have the greatest mom and mother-in-law ever! We are so lucky and blessed to have them in our lives. Thanks Grandma Debs (they are both named Debbie).

My awesome dad came for a visit from Colorado this weekend too! He drove his new prized possession- a brand new 5th wheel that is beautiful. We had such a good time just hanging out. I love this man so much and he just cannot get enough of all of his grandkids. Thanks dad for driving 500 miles to see us!

This is Ryker, Parker's cousin. We were on our toes wondering which one was going to grab the other's face, hair, nose, etc. first.
Love this kid! This was too cute of Rylee digging into some watermelon on the table.

This is Parker's hairdo after sleeping in his carseat- Jared picked him up and said, "Cool baby" thinking that I had deliberately combed his hair like this. We had a good laugh because it was a perfect as can be mohawk. We liked it so much we decided to comb his hair like that for church. He got lots of attention from the ladies.
