My Birthday

For my birthday, I wanted 2 things.  I wanted to go hiking and I wanted a donut.  Well, I got 1 out of 2.  We went up to Max Patch for our hike.  It was a perfect day outside, not too hot, not too cold.  Max Patch is a huge grassy dome or several domes, with fantastic views.  It was worth the drive and made for a great birthday. 

Myles enjoying the sunshine

Emma rode most of the way up

The boys ran.....

There were several people flying kites.  Emma got a kick out of watching them crash.

A nice man took a picture of us hiking up the hill.  He sent this photo to me.

Tiny House Progress

Here is the Tiny House, all 440 square feet of it.  Josh is making amazing progress on the little place.  The drywallers come tomorrow and soon we will have walls.  We plan on moving in around the middle of May.  It's crazy that Josh built us a house in 2 months.  

This was a few weeks ago

Inside, before the walls went up

I can't resist taking a pic of this cutie

Or two....

Side view


The siding is wood that he milled from the trees that were cut down on our lot.  It looks awesome.

The metal roof is on

Spray foam insulation is in.  Ready for drywall to go up.  

Cat Girl

A few weeks ago I posted some pics of Emma and "her" cat.  I have more to share.  They are too cute not to.  She can't get enough of "cat-cat" and he tolerates her affection very well.

Josh ended up taking a few photos of the boys Easter egg hunting. was freezing.

Spring Break

Yea!!  Gramma and Grandpa came to visit for spring break.  Josh is super busy building the house and I had to work so the grandparents helped out with the kids.  They took them to the Greenville Zoo, the Biltmore and several other fun places.  They also came bearing Easter baskets!!  Thank you all for everything.

Emma got a new lamb for Easter

The boys got Nerf guns

We also went to the Black Mountain easter egg hunt

It was freezing!!!

Emma wasn't sure what to do at first but she caught on.

I only have pics of Emma because the boys had to hunt eggs in a different field.  They split up the age groups which was great for the little ones.
Stay tuned for pics of dying eggs with Gramma
