Working on our skills

The weather today was perfect for a golf game! The kids were so excited to go play golf with dad!

I was worried about Layla getting bored. She likes golf, but doesn't love it. You know what? She did great! She out drove me hitting from the tee box a few times. I was so proud of her.

She had the most fun driving the golf cart she and I shared. She's a great driver and she had so much fun. She felt like she was driving a real car! We hit some hard bumps a few times and bounced out of our seats. We stated laughing until our tummies hurt!

She was also a great coach and supporter for me. I got super frustrated a few times. I had a horrible round of golf and she was good about making me calm down. I'm way to competitive sometimes.

Hayden had a great golf round and Gary did pretty good also. It was fun to watch Gary golf. He loves it so much!

The weather was absolutely perfect for golf! I'm loving the peaceful pictures and the big puffy clouds against the blue sky!

Just another Summer Sunday

Today was a nice day here at home with the family.  

Gary got up this morning and mowed the yard and I did laundry and a little bit of cleaning.  While mowing Gary added a putting green to part of our yard.  

Gary and Hayden played golf right here in our yard all afternoon.  

Layla and I loved watching them, and Layla joined in too.

I sat and took tons of pictures today.  I have an addiction.  I guess I could be addicted to worse things huh?!?

We ended the evening with a bonfire.  

For some reason I got chilly as the evening went on.  It was about 73 degrees and I wouldn't call that hot by any means, but certainly not cold.  I guess the breeze got me.  I had to get my snuggie and cuddle up!  This is certainly a summer like no other for the Sipes family!  We are loving this Ohio weather.  I hope your Sunday was grand!

Date night!

Gary and I snuck out for a date night, just the two of us!

We went to several different fun places here in town. We tried new drinks and yummy appetizers!

It was a fun night.

We are sad because our favorite babysitter is at our house for the very last time. She's moving away to college. We're so happy for her, but sad too!

Hayden is 5 years old!

Hayden loved his cake for breakfast!

Take a picture of me a dad!!

I sure do love my silly little man.

Hayden is pretty easy to please.  He said he wanted to play Putt-Putt on his birthday.

We had a great time!

Hayden was surrounded by girls while playing golf.  I think he's a lucky 5 year old!

Hayden told Gary and I he didn't want to go to a restaurant for his birthday dinner.

He was very specific about what he wanted, so we obliged.  He wanted steak, mac n cheese and green beans.  We all enjoyed our steak dinner and had more chocolate cake for dessert!  It was a great day indeed!

chocolate cake with chocolate icing

This night is like a flashback from 2 weeks ago.
Two weeks ago I was making a cake for my almost 8 year old.

Tonight Layla and I are making a cake for my almost 5 year old.  Hayden is 5 tomorrow!!

Poor poor pitiful pup

  We had to chase Lily all around the yard and hold her down to give her a bath.  She was a stinky dirty dog and needed a bath, but she fought us tooth and nail.  I love the pictures Gary captured of her little face.  She looks just like she did when she was an itty bitty puppy.  The top left picture is my favorite.  She looks so pathetic.  The bath was successful and she smells much better now!
