The Fire Department BBQ

My husband works for a firedepartment here as you all probably know from one of my previous posts. We had their annual Fire Department BBQ this past weekend and we had such a good time. Unfortunatly Austin was sick and the other two older boys were unable to come along but Dakota came and swam like a fish all day. We had so much fun, we wish the other three could have been there like they are every year but next year we will have them all we hope. Here are some pics from this past weekend.

This is me having a beer and swimming in the pool it was so nice but really hot.

This is Dakota my little fish.

Me attempting to play Horseshoes. I didn't do so well LOL I think me and my poor partner took last place.

This is my husband Doug doing very well at Horseshoes.

This is Jack the best Fire Chief in Missouri (in my opinion)

This is our family's Best friend Luke ( his name on the fire department is TaTonka which means buffalo)

This is our other family friend Sean (aka the gun show)

My friend Marsha has the cutest little girl named Taylor her father has indian in him so she has those beautiful high cheek bones and when she smiles at you she always squints at you so my husband has given her the name of "squints"

This is my friend Marsha and her daughter Taylor and me and my daycare boy Colton (his daddy is on the fire department and when we have fire department functions he is usually connected to my hip he is such a sweet little boy with a typical two year old ornary streak.

All in all we had a wonderful day and we are going to be having a wonderful fourth of July celbation at our house this weekend I will post pics after to show you the fun.

Very Cool Discovery

My husband Doug, step-son Cody, friend Matt and Me went to another 3D bowshoot today and it was a Lot of fun. Doug took 3rd, Cody took 5th and I took 2nd (first time I ever placed WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!) We got done shooting the first part of this bow shoot and walking out of the woods Cody stepped over the cutest little turtle. He was about the size of a half dollar and we named him little bit or at least until Austin renames him LOL. As I was looking for a container to keep little bit in till we were done shooting our friend larry said in a whisper "Julie come look at this". I walk up the hill a little and what do i see but this cute little terrified fawn. Its momma must have been scared away thismorning while the people came to set up for the shool. We are a little worried that there will be so much human scent that the momma won't comen back to it. it stood there most of the day just shaking I felt so bad for it but kne i couldn't keep everything so I settled for the turtle (it can't jump a fence LOL). This is our little friends.

My reminders of why I do what I do

I have a wonderful life with a great job that makes me available for my children 24/7 and I have my sweet daycare kids that i care for that put a smile on my face many times a day. There are however days when I have little ones who just want to cry and fuss and test me and push my buttons. But then I look at these cute little faces and remember that I love them all so much and am so blessed to have such a great group of daycare kids. Below is Colton, Mathew, Bella & Laci.
Cute kids huh? I think I am one blessed daycare provider. They each have their days but they have many more good days than rough ones. I love my job.
