Apple Picking 2009

This morning Landin and I got to go apple picking with our MOPS group for the morning. To say that this place is a boys heaven is an understatement! Acres upon acres of wide open space, play equipment (which I included a picture of), cats, roosters, apple trees, a hay ride…let me just say that Landin was in his element!

We spent the first part on a hay ride, which he hated the hay and wouldn't sit on it and kept saying Yuck when it would get on him (Oh I swear he will be a country boy one day) and then the rest of the time we picked apples and made cider. Landin was running around everywhere the entire time and at one point wiped out completely! If you look at some of the pictures he is covered with grass on his face but he honestly didn't care. He was also obsessed with the 4-wheeler (more so than the apples) and wanted to ride on it so bad! (I see one of these in our future in the next couple of years).

We had to leave early so I could get to work and I am not kidding when I said Landin we need to go bye-bye he started crying! He is so sweet!

Loving our new back yard

(Picture overload)

I took some pictures of Landin last night in our new backyard. We have 1.6 acres of land for this little guy to explore and he is loving it! His favorite right now is picking apples off of our 2 trees (which by the way the lady never took care of so they are all dead).

Our Dream House :)

We are officially there (well we have been for about 3 weeks) and we are LOVING IT!!! I seriuosly can't explain how nice the space, the yard, and even the barn is for us to have. We love being back in Woodburn surronded by hay fields, amish, cows, and horses :)

Here are some pictures of our "humble abode". This house definitley needs a lot of work still, but it is coming along and we can't wait until all of this hard work pays off!

This is our great room. I thought I had a before shot but I am missing it. Let me just say it was SCARY! It was all this barn siding on all the walls, the one wall was blue, and the mantle was WHITE! With the help of Adam's Aunt looks so much better! Now just picture it with curtains and decorations and oh yeah, glass in the bar and it will be finished. It is huge and we spend all of our time in there now. Landin actually just runs circles around the furniture because he loves it so much :)

This is my kitchen!! The pictures don't do justice the paint job in there. That light blue wall is actually a teal/green and it is beautiful! Next summer we are going to be painting the cabinets off-white but for now I will just stare at my gorgeous walls :) P.S...don't mind the laundry room in the background. That is getting a makeover too :)

And this folks is Landin's room! I love it!! It is supposed to be painted for his big boy room :) As you can see I haven't put anythign on the walls because I am OBSESSED with awesoem they turned out. So besides that and curtains we are done in there.

I will update this more as we make improvements, but for now we are enjoying it!
