"The road to freedom is bordered with sunflowers." - Martin Firrell

One of our favorite things to do as a family is to hop in the Jeep and drive some backroads. We chase the sunset and watch it fall over a field, creek, pond or lake. We usually have no agenda when backroading, but yesterday I was adamant to find a sunflower field. Normally they are pretty abundant around here this time of year, but it’s all about the corn this year. We finally landed upon a field of sunflowers somewhere in Ennis, TX. And, it was well worth the miles we covered.

Mercy, it's been a minute since I've visited this space. Life has been busy! I know that's so cliche, but seriously, it's the only explanation I have. I didn't plan on quitting this blog, a hiatus just happened. So, what have we been up to since I last blogged on April 25th?  Let's see...

{Mason's 2nd grade field trip}

A couple of weeks ago I got to take off work and go along with Mason and his 2nd-grade field trip. We went to a place called Yesterland Farms in Canton. They have rides, gem mining, a petting zoo, a park, tractor/train rides, etc.

{Ranger Game // Opening Day 2018}

A few weeks ago we went to the Texas Ranger's opening day! We took Mason out of school for this since they're not recognizing this as a holiday yet. I mean, it totally should be. It is in our family, at least. So yeah, Mason got to miss school and hang out with his parents and a bunch of other adults all day.

{Easter // 2018}

Easter has easily become one of my favorite holidays. The meaning of the holiday is so important to our family. While we keep our focus on Jesus during the Easter season, we do celebrate with family as well.
