Legoland, Championship Baseball Game...OH MY!

Yesterday morning I woke up like most of you thinking TGIF....

What an amazing Friday....Spent the whole day at Legoland with Hannah and her first grade class. It was Hannah's first time, so the excitement was unbearable for her.

After an ever so enjoyable day, it was off the the baseball field for Cody's championship. This game would determine if the boys would qualify for the Tournament of Champions. Austyn was opening game pitcher and Cody was the closer. Between the two of them they both pitched a NO hitter. There were 2 double plays and ALL the boys had hits with great sticks!! Winning the game 4-0 against the Dodgers.

The Menifee Valley Little League Major Angels are going to TOCs!

U Pick Them!

While surfing the world wide web mid April, I came upon . I was wanting to find a place local to us where you could pick berries. Low and behold there it was... a little farm in Temecula. It's called Temecula Berry Co. and you can pick your own blueberries on the weekend!

Temecula Berry Company began as a family farm in the late 90's. Since then, Ray & Mike Graesser (father & son) have planted 10 acres of southern highbush blueberries in the Temecula Valley.

It's a super inexpensive way to have the whole family enjoy the outdoors, have a sweet photo shoot and the special treat plump healthy blueberries. Hannah and I plan to make some blueberry muffins and scones with the fruit we picked. YUM!

While the weather is dry sneak away to the farm for a small adventure. Pack up the kids and go today!

Temecula Berry Co. 39700 Cantrell Rd, Temecula, CA 92591 (951) 255-5552

Tuesday Thoughts...

It's been so hot the last few days here... huh? I was happily surprised to wake up at 5:30 this morning and open the windows to fresh cool air. Such a refreshing change from the 108 degree oven heat of the last 4 days!

Here are a few images of my day...

Yipee we'll able to conserve a little water today because of the cool weather.

Hannah left a sweet a note Dave and I on the kitchen island. I found on my way to make our morning java. The front reads "Love is in the Air"...isn't that a title to a 70's song? The back reads:

I love you mommy and Daddy. You are fun to do stuff with. You have both taught me a lot of stuff. Daddy taught me tenes (tennis) mommy taught me how to craft. I love you mommy and Daddy. Love, Hannah
Look at the yummy buttons I need to sort into my button and green.

Enjoy your day!

Mom, This is for You.

Today... I'm inclined to quote Abraham Lincoln....
All I am, or can be, I owe to my mother.

This is how Hannah, my mom and I shared a lovely day together.

Keep It Simple...

I'm keeping things simple... how? By showing my children I enjoy spending time with them.

These past few weeks I've been fortunate and shared my time by helping in Hannah's first grade class room. It's been so fun to observe the social practices of these 11 seven year olds. They're smart, observant and confident!

The best part of this whole experience is seeing their happy smiling faces when I walk into the class room and being welcomed with, "Yeah!!! Mrs. McCoy, you're here"! Hannah's face lights up and she feels so proud to have me participate in her class routine. : )

Look at the fun craft we created. Everyone is so proud of their little pots of happiness!

I love being a mom! Everyday I remind myself to strive to Keep It Simple.

Isn't she the sweetest little girly thing you've ever seen? With her chubby cheeks and bright eyes there is no other care in world other than... can I bite this toy any harder? Everyone...this is Sophia...she's modeling a Prima Pink Flower Clip. There's not much hair to hold up right now but isn't she lovely?
