All this for $5!!!!!

We've had some EXCITING (probably not to you all) stuff going on at the farm this week.

1st-our friend-(I call him our oldest adopted son that AIN'T LEGAL) brought THIS for the kids to see....They honked the horn, rolled the windows up and down, played with the controls, compressor-rolled around on the bed and climbed in and out SEVERAL TIMES for about an hour! Here's Bean on the bed! More spacious that I would have thought. My favorite part by far... THE BLING on the controls!Everyone but MyMy-she was too shy to get in until the very end.Wy Wy made my day with these "weeds" he brought me-just look at that smile! Notice anything else "odd" in this picture? That's right, he's got gold rings on his arms-NAPKIN RINGS TO BE EXACT. He says these rings "MAKE ME STRONG LIKE SAMPSON." He's had them on for several days now along with the SPIDEY hat.When you live in the country-SOMEONE has to grate the roads. So, when The Captain saw the grater out yesterday, he asked him to make a couple passes down our drive to smooth it out. The kids were INTRIGUED.

MORE FREE ENTERTAINMENT..WHAT A DEAL!After treating the driver to a bottle of water and a chat-he was off.
And we got a nice smooth driveway out of the deal!Of course, It HAD to be tested for smoothness by WyWy.We took the 6 littles to SONIC last night for their $1 Candy Sundaes. We spent $5 and gave them all a sweet treat! Notice I said $5 for 6 littles? One of the littles got in trouble and didn't get a SONIC treat... BUMMER. Guess why?
This particular little got into the fridge and proceeded to open their mouth and poor Hershey's syrup into said mouth and gulp gulp, gulp it down while The Captain & I were outside mowing-the bummer in it was, they just weren't smart enough to check their face after for evidence.... BUSTED!!!!!!
All this Entertainment for just $5 with a BONUS CHERRY ON TOP!
It's going to be 92 degrees in OZ today so we are heading to the pool for the first time this year-YIPPEE! Hope you all have a GREAT, BLESSED weekend!

Oh the joy of living on the farm. You brought a smile to my heart today, gold rings for Sampson's strength, simply too precious. Truly a memory to cherish.

Besitos (little kisses),

My kids would have loved that semi-truck cab too!! Too funny about not hiding the evidence well enough with the chocolate syrup on the face. :-)

Kelly said...

I love free entertainment!!!!

Is there something wrong with pouring the choc. syrup in your mouth? LOL My daughter does that all the time. (But I don't approve).

OH MY! Eating the sundaes in the vehicle. That could never happen here. Snaggle and Blue Eyes are so messy when they eat. They are getting better but...oh my I can't even think about sundaes in the van.

Fun Family Times! I love making memories (esp. for $5 or less) :)

You know, life can't get much better than that. Have fun swimming.

Phoenix's Mom said...

free entertainment! awesome! I probably would have loved seeing the semi, haha. I find joy in the little things :) I got to ride in a fire truck a year ago and loved it. I love the Sampson bracelets! That is great and poor little guy, but he already had his treat!!

Mandi said...

Have fun at the pool! Your kiddos are blessed with a life full of country-living fun!!!

Cheryl said...

I just have to ask....was the "particular little" Aw-Bell? Cuz that sounds sooooo like what Kylee or Josh would do! They haven't....yet...but I wouldn't put it past them...LOL

Tessa said...

NOW that is a deal! Thanks for sharing about the $1 sundaes at Sonic ... we JUST got one 5 minutes from our house and I can't wait to go!

Midwest Mommy said...

You seriously make me want to move to a farm!

Sarah Dawn said...

Thanks for stopping by today. Your comment truly made me think. I think my creativity gets in the way sometimes and skews the meaning. Thanks for helping me learn in this new adventure of bloggin' and thinking through my words a bit more.

Hugs for your night,
Sarah Dawn

Oh the things we will do for entertainment in KS :-)

I SO could see my little one doing the choc. syrup trick!

We are off to the pool for the first time on Monday...or in two sleeps as Lexy kept telling me today!

Joyful Mom said...

Wow, so much fun stuff happening in your world. I bet the kids are loving every minute of it.

The pool??? I am totally jealous :) Kidding. We are still in the 50's and 60's (now and then) here. I am longing for some hot weather. Can I move to Oz :)

Shana Jacobs said...

Wow....that is a toughie Mama...not letting one little eat ice cream while the rest do.

I just love your stories. They are so cute and always bring a smile to my face.

I hope you had a blast swimming! I want to see some pictures :)
