Friday Ben had a new challange before him! He got to get behind the lawn mower and mow a strip of lawn. He was not able to go for a long time but he did great on what he did! Ben was not able to use the self-propelled part of it because it went to fast so it was manual pushing and walking for him! I on the other hand use the self-propelled and get it done as fast as I can! By the end of this summer I expect Ben to be mowing the whole lawn by himself! :)
On Saturday I was able to meet up with my girl Kim whom I met through blogging and was able to meet for the first time in March! She lives on the eastern side of the state but was going to be on our side so we met up for coffee and pedicures! It was fun to see her again and spend time with her! We were going to try and participate in the warrior dash together but I was unable to this year...next year we will slap on our viking horns and complete that sucka of a mud puddle together!!
We didn't get any photos this time but here is from out last time...
Saturday afternoon we took off to go to a city parade...and it was pouring down room!
We put up a pop-up tent and right as we did it stopped raining and didn't rain a drop again the rest of the night! Go figure! A few of my sisters were there with their families, some friends and my lil bro! It was alot of fun!
Today we lounged in the morning and it was nice! We have been going, going for the past few days that we just wanted to chill! Ben watched a movie and I was going gung hoe on my new sewing machine! I am working on a few projects and now that I have a sewing machine back I don't want to stop! It is bad though becuase it keeps me up at night and then my man's wake-up calls are not so pleasant for me in the mornings! Anyways, I did some sewing on a new gumdrop pillow I'm working on. I have had the pattern for awhile and it was time to get started...now I just need the batting to fill it!
We were able to go to some friends house for dinner and that was fun! The guys had worked together as Rangers and it had been some time since we had seen them. Right as we were walking out of their house (I have Ben walk to the
All in all it was a very good day! No sewing tonight, just blogging and bed!
BIG NEWS ALERT!!!!!
Ben and I will be heading down to Ft. Benning, GA this next Sunday! The reason we are going is for Ranger Rendezvous 2011! This event only happens every other year and this year we get to participate! It is where past and present Rangers gather together for a few days of fun! We will get to see all of the events that are going to take place, go to ceremonies and Ben will get to see all of his Ranger buddies! He is super excited and knows what he is in for!! My little (big) brother is going to join us and help us along the way for which I am grateful! There will also be some other injured Rangers there that we will be able to meet!
We are super excited to be apart of this event and will for sure be posting updates when we get home!! Please pray for traceling mercies and that things will go smoothly for all of us! I should be posting before we go but wanted to share it with y'all!
In preparations to going we have been getting Ben's uniform and all the things to go with it ready to go! Thank you to a few Ranger men Ben's uniform has been inspected and is ready to go! Ben also got a new beret (his old was missing but then found with a hole in it) so he wanted to put it on and try it out! I think he is one handsome man with his beret on but then again I can be biased...
