We decided to have a cookout on the lake at the end of the ferry on Sunday. The ferry is right on the lake. There use to be ferry’s way back when to take people to the other side of the lake and them here. Its at the very end of our hunting club and has a gorgeous view of our beautiful lake. We brought hamburgers to cook on the grill, practiced skeet shooting and sat out a catfish rod. True redneck style, right? I wouldn’t change it for anything in this world. I love this life.
We stayed out on the lake from 1-7 on Saturday!! The bass have been schooling up river and its so much fun to catch them when they do that! The kids love it. We rode, fished, ate ice cream, and had a blast! I love they love outside so much like their mommy and daddy!
Last week was a rough one with Miss Jocelynn. Well, the past couple of months have been pretty rough. I have had a feeling for a while now that something is going on with her that we are not seeing. She complains of her belly hurting all.the.time. Yes, she goes to the bathroom. Sometimes twice a day. I feel so bad for my baby. Last week she said her pee-pee was hurting her again. She had a UTI in early June. So I immediately thought UTI. Then she woke up in the middle of the night with 104 degree fever!! That went on every night for about 4 nights. The doctors were worried BC her urine came back negative and yet she was still having fever. They gave her an antibiotic shot and started her on oral antibiotics that next day. I had to taker her back for a re check of her blood that Friday. Her white blood cell count and platelet count was very low the first time. The second time they were starting to climb back up. I am convinced she had a kidney infection. I know urine can come back clean and you still have a kidney infection. I am still giving her the antibiotics today and she seems back to her normal fun self. I just hope this isn’t something she is going to have to deal with the rest of her life. I would take it away from her in a heart beat and give it to me if it meant her not being in pain.
We met Lindsay and Whitney at Oak Mountain State Park beach one day too! Two outta four of my hens;) Whitney was in town staying with Lindsay while her husband was in ATL. I am so glad we got to spend some time together and I finally got to meet her precious boy, Lincoln!! Im obsessed, he was the cutest thing ever. Hudson and Emma were so funny! Jocelynn calls Hudson “Husband” which is so funny. We stayed out there for most of the day. We ate ice cream, swam and had a picnic on the beach. Jocelynn was very disturbed with me calling it a beach. She kept telling me it was a pretend beach because there was no blue water or waves. You’re right baby girl, always right. We were at a pretend beach, I suppose.
Matts mom dropped off a bag of about 40 tomatoes. Guess what I did with it??? Made homemade marinara!! It was DELICIOUS! I froze about 12 bags of it and we’ve already used some for homemade pizza. So simple to do and I love knowing whats going in our body.
Matts Nanny kept the babies for a little while last Sunday so we could spend some time together. We went fishing and as always, had a blast. I love spending time with just my man. He is my world and comes first in my life. He and I are what hold our family together so Ill take whatever time I get alone with him! My mom is moving back to Bham in October and I honestly cant wait to have someone close to us thats willing to help us with our babies!! And of course… more date nights!
And just a couple of videos to add from July:)
