Saturday Hike @ Croft State Park

Despite the cold, we ventured out with friends on Saturday to hike at Croft State Park. The day was beautiful, the trail was perfect and despite an injury, we had a GREAT time! 

Matt had a hard job. Maddox did not. 

When you hike with kids, there are millions of stops. It's just part of it. One of our stops was by water and sand. Kids' dream come true! 
  

Hat twins...she is the cutest! 

Dad of the year...kneeling down with 50 pounds of weight so Maddox could touch the water! 
  


Sweet friends. 

They made it! 

Our little explorers. 


The injury...Mason tripped and hit his eye on a root. Thankfully, it wasn't too bad but it sure hurt him! 

I pray that this spring and summer we can enjoy many more days outside together as a family and with friends!

Itty Bitty Basketball 2019

This year is Mason's third year of Itty Bitty Basketball. He has enjoyed it so much each year and we are so grateful for this program and an opportunity to support our city! 

This year, along with friends he has made in the past, his buddy Emma is doing it, too! They were excited to sit by each other. 


We will see how Maddox manages for the next 5 weeks. Week 1 was pretty good. 

Shenanigans! 




More shenanigans...


Mason worked on agility, passing, dribbling, and shooting. He's definitely got plenty of room for improvement but he enjoys it so much and has made progress over the years! 



On 3...1, 2, 3,  ITTY BITTY!

Monster Jam 2019

In 2017 and 2018, Matt and Mason went to Monster Jam and had a blast. This year, we discussed it but didn't think it would happen. However, last minute on Friday we decided to give it a go and off they went! 

First is always a stop at PDQ for food! 

Monster Mutt needed to eat, too. 😉

Ready to go! 

Meanwhile, back at home Maddox and I were having a date. He requested to pick up trash in his wagon. 😭


We had dinner together and I even splurged for donuts. #Duh

He earned them because he tried spinach and avocado at dinner! 

  

  

Tickets purchased and ready to head inside! Matt was thrilled because with fees, the tickets would have been nearly $90 online. At the box office, he paid face value with zero fees. #Win! 
  

Back at home, Maddox asked to paint. A friend asked how Maddox felt about not going to Monster Jam and I said, "He didn't know about it." 😉
 

My guys had the best time! 

  






2020 Monster Jam includes little brother, too! 🎉🎉🎉


The Morgan's Movements 2019 {Week 5}

One morning, Mason asked to set up a grocery store so we did! We had all of our food including bakery items and we even had a cash register area. It's a good thing I don't shop at his grocery store often because things were expensive!!! 

  

I had to show off my hat one cold morning when we headed to Stroller Rollers. It was a gift from a friend and I love it! 

Framily (friends who are like family) time is always good for the soul. Even if it is freezing cold outside! 
  


A day when my hair is done and I'm wearing make up must be documented. 😂

Matt sent this picture. He was in the bathroom and Maddox came in and closed the door to "give Matt privacy." 😂

This would be me feeling like I may die at Stroller Rollers. 

Salad for breakfast? Sure, why not! #WhoAmI

I'm trying to be more diligent about reducing screen time and I was proud to see this last week! 

One morning both boys ended up in bed with me after their potty stop. I was pretty excited for those snuggles! 


We had an extra buddy with us for Kid's workshop Saturday! 



  

  



I also decided to try to find the pins from kid's workshops of the past. I didn't find all of them but I found a good bit and we will work to keep up with them from now on! Just a fun treasure for years to come. 

We made it to the Airport Park on a beautiful day. Maddox scootered, I walked, Matt ran and Mason rode his bike. It was perfection! 


We ended with Chick-Fil-A dinner which thanks to coupons was $7 for all of us. 🎉

Ending the night with snuggles together. Love these people. 


The next morning, someone found his way to me once Matt got him up. He's the best snuggler. 

Look at those two boys in bowties! 
  

I love us. 


Pile on Dad! 

We went to a friend's house for Super Bowl and thought it was so nice she put up balloons for us to be able to find her house. 😉

Maddox didn't care a thing about the game for the most part but he was happy playing! 

Snacks in a recliner. #Boys 

Goodness...that Super Bowl party wore us out. Monday afternoon, we all took naps! 


Well, Matt didn't. He had to work. 😝 But he hit platinum with homer awards at work. He got this cool patch, a little bonus and a free gift. 🎉 I was pretty darn proud! 

A valentine event at the library kept us occupied. It was a fun time! 
  

Matt had the boys outside in the yard on a beautiful afternoon. They got all of the leaves into one pile and were all filthy dirty by the end of it!
