Dismukes Ranch

Jen Dismukes hosted a play date for StrollerFriends at her home this month. It was so much fun! Her family lives on a Ranch with dogs, cows, and horses. The kiddos got to play with the dogs, see the cows, and feed the horses carrots. After a picnic lunch, Jen took the kids for rides on her 4 wheelers! Owen would like to go live with Jen... but he'll settle for us getting a dog and a 4 wheeler, lol!

Slimy Snail - ewwwww!

This is Taffy, she is very pregnant. Jen had hoped she would give birth before the play date so the kiddos could see the new baby. James and Owen are getting acquainted with her.

Taffy sniffing out the carrot Petra is holding. It made the kiddos laugh to see her curl up her lips like that!

Jen and three horses but I don't remember the other two's names...

Melanie and Raina
I wasn't fast enough with the camera, moments before, Raina was gnawing on that carrot! Sooooo Cute!

Surf's Up!

We celebrated Owen's 4th Birthday with a Mickey Mouse Surf Party at Grandpa Russ and Grandma Brenda's house. The party was a blast! Lots of swimming, sliding, good food, and good friends!

Cupcakes and Party Favors

When I asked Owen what kind of birthday cake he wanted this year, he said, "Raspberry," then I asked what he wanted on it, "Candles, of course!" "How do you want it decorated?" I asked. Owen thought for a moment and announced, "I'd like my picture on it." Aly gave me the idea to make my own cupcake toppers. As you can see, some of them have Owen's picture, others have Mickey ears and number 4s, and some have little surf boards.

Miss Raina, so cute!

Lunch time

I almost took Owen's cupcake out to him with only three candles. It's a good thing my Mom and Aly were there to stop me!

Make a wish....
