Let's try this again....

So, last week I was a little over half-way through a long blog posts with updates on our life.  Sadly, my computer shut off for no apparent reason, and I lost my post.  

In an attempt to start writing on my blog weekly, I've decided to just start with this weekend, instead of trying to go back and write a gigantic post on the past few months.  So, the update will start with Friday night :)

My little brother Jason, turns 11 on April 14th (2 days after my birthday), and since Brett had to work Friday night, I decided this would be a good time to spend some time with Jason for his birthday!

First, I took him to get some ice cream, because for some reason I was starving, but it was to early eat dinner.  So we went to Cold Stone Creamery.  I had never been to the one here in Fayetteville, so it was a fun, new place to check out! 
After ice cream, we went to do some shopping.  Joel, Brett and I decided to go in together and let him pick out some shoes or something he wanted for his birthday.  We ended up with these from JcPenny.  They had a good sale on the shoes, blue we got an extra 10% off due to a "one day only sale"  (and is it just me, or does JCPenny have a "one day only sale" everyday?!?)

Then he wanted to go to Cracker Barrel for dinner, so we headed to Springdale, and had some yummy country food.  Side Note:  It made me think about the first time I went to dinner with my best friend and her now husband, Casey.  It was right after a friends wedding, and we finally got to sit and talk and hang out just the 3 of us!  anyway.../memory lane. 
Cracker Barrel was fun!  I love the Country Store, and Jason and I had a ton of fun looking around!

Of course this is a highlight of CB.  I'm not even sure what it's called, but he got it on the 3rd try, but then we couldn't do it a 2nd. 

Saturday morning, I had to work for a few hours, but then came home and Brett, Jason and I went to the opening day of the Farmers Market here in Fayetteville.  It was packed full of people, but I just think it's so fun and refreshing to go!  Plus, they have some great stuff!  

Then we went to the batting cages so Jason could practice with Brett.  Brett has played baseball his whole life, and even played in college until he hurt his shoulder.  He is very talented at it, and had some great pointers for Jason!  Jason was hitting all the balls that got pitched to him by the end!  We can't wait to watch some of his games!

After Brett left for work, Jason and I went to Putt-Putt where I won by 4 points, and got a hole-in-one on the the 18th.  I was so excited, I had to call Brett right away :) He was so proud! haha

Today has been a pretty lazy day for us. I'm trying out my green thumb.  Or what I hope is a green thumb. 

I'm trying this "Flowe in a pot", before I try anything out in Flower Bed, where the whole world can see  it ;)

    Speaking of Farmers Markets, I really want to try and go to some this year - Jesse and I will have to scope out which ones are good here in MN and try a few, thanks for the reminder!
