Weekend Wrap Up - Grandma Melly Edition

I love July.

Now - I normally say that Spring or Fall is my favorite time of year - and as far as the weather goes, those two seasons win hands down.

But as far as pace of life, and the ability to slow down and breath a little....

July takes the cake.

This weekend was another one where we just enjoyed life.

Friday night after work, I had a date with this cute lady and her family....

Miss Taylor May is so precious and SUCH a good baby.

I don't want to steal any thunder from Alecia's announcement idea (because it is adorable) but I figured showing you a blurry one wasn't going to ruin her surprise....but would you just LOOK at those tiny hands?

My uterus was doing back flips, wanting to have another little one while my brain was saying "Whoa, Nelly....let's get Chandler grown up a little more first."  :)

Speaking of Chandler....I had approximately two extra minutes before the Funk's arrived at our house so I snuck in a few pictures of him.

Love this sweet baby.

And I must love this outfit...because the last pictures I took of him were in the same one, lol.

While I was hanging out with the Funk's, Adam & Clint were getting a tour of a calf feeding facility in Boardman and when they got home we all just settled in and hung out watching TV for awhile.

Watching TV in the evenings is kind of a luxury and guilty pleasure....we're usually too tired to stay up, but Friday night we watched for an hour or two and it was blissful to just kind of zone out and relax.

Saturday Clint headed to Heppner with Pace to help with a livestock judging workshop, while I went to an appointment in Tri-Cities.  That night we headed out to the Raymond's and ate spaghetti (thanks Amy!) & ice cream cake, and wrapped up the evening by playing Apples to Apples.

It's TOTALLY Ryan's favorite game.
Colter and Amy were neck & neck for the final win but Amy pulled off the win!

Sunday we had plans to go to The Dalles to meet Grandma Melly for lunch.
Mel, and her three siblings Joe, Lori & Chuck came to visit their sister who lives north of Portland this week.  Their nephew Shawn lives in Portland, and he drove Mel & Aunt Lori to meet us for lunch.  Chandler had just woken up when we got to Big Jim's, but after he woke up a bit he was a ham and loved being held by everyone.

We love this crew, and it was a great way to spend the day!

Hope you had a great weekend too, and are living the dream wherever you are!


  1. Darcy,
    Relaxing with friends and enjoying a slower pace is nice. I'm glad you got the opportunity to take a deep breath and enjoy a "guilty pleasure."

    Time with good friends is priceless. It's hard to get off the ranch and make time to be social, but after spending time with friends I realize it is so necessary!

    Also glad you got to catch up with family.

    Hope you have a great week and keep cool!
