My name is Amber and I'm an iPhone Photographer :)

Sad really, isn't it?!?! haha. I don't know if this new phone was a good idea or not. I initially wanted a good phone to take pictures with and now it seems like that's the only kind of personal pictures I take! It's made me pretty lazy to be honest. I do like the fact that it's a little more discreet than the big ole Canon!

Friday night, we went to my FAVORITE restaurant with Jeff, Whit and Carley. For those of you who don't live here, let me just tell you, you need to make the trip to Huntsville just to eat at Rosies! It's so worth it. I've probably written about it in the past, but it really is the best! I haven't been in over a month, so it was well over due. Wyatt wasn't really in the best mood, but it turns out he was running a fever due to the fire ant bites he suffered the day before :( Poor fella, it was awful! If I had realized that he was running a fever, we wouldn't have even attempted going. He wasn't too happy until we let him splash around in the water fountain...... what boy wouldn't love that?!?!

Sunday we went over to Christy's parents pool again and had a blast swimming! I'm so thankful for them and that they invite us over all the time. Plus, it wears Wyatt out and he sleeps like a baby! Life is so much easier this year since he can swim around on his own (with Puddle Jumpers, of course). I never thought I'd be able to read a magazine by the pool again, but I'm happy to announce: I finally can!! He is perfectly content entertaining himself in the pool now.

Saturday night, we took Wyatt and Mason to the Hazel Green Tractor Pull. Let me just say, my boy LOVES some tractor pullin'! haha. Me, on the other hand, I was HOT! Oh my goodness, I bet it was 100˚ out there with NO BREEZE. UGH!! I do understand that this is the humid south, but really it was more than I could take. Fortunately, we were able to watch one tractor class and a few trucks and Wyatt was willing to leave. It helped that we may or may not have bribed him and told him Mason could come back to the house and play :) Hey, I'm not above it!

Finally, today Wyatt and Morgan have been busy fellas. They've been at the new farm planting beans! It worked out pretty well and I was able to go to lunch with a friend for a couple of hours while Wyatt stayed with his daddy. Can I just say, I'm so thankful to have the best husband in the world. I know I'm guilty of not telling him enough, but he really is such a great husband, father, provider and leader of our family. He never reads this blog, but I just feel like he deserves some praise. I am amazed at just how wonderful he is. I know he feels super overwhelmed right now as this is probably the biggest leap we will ever take in our lives, but he has always made the right choices for us and I know he will continue to do so. In the end, we aren't doing this for us, but for our children. Morgan's desire is to leave Wyatt and any other future children we may have with a love of the land. Our hopes is not that Wyatt will farm, unless of course, he wants to. But that he will know what farm living is like and grow up to appreciate all things of this lifestyle. He may move to NYC and live in a high-rise one day, but he will always remember those summers playing in the creek and watching the deer, boar, and turkey roam in the field. I'm so thankful to my husband for wanting to provide us with this way of life.
