Ham Orchards

On Saturday we ventured off to Terrell to Ham Orchards which is known for their peaches. I had heard about it through the Dallas Morning News and decided I wanted to check it out.

Here I am standing among the blackberry bushes. Before the blackberries darken they are the color of raspberries.
A random pic of me.

A view of some of the peach trees.

I'm assuming this is the house where the owners live since it's right on the property and the orchard is family-owned. Being here was very nostalgic for me. It takes you back in time.

More blackberries.

Another view of the grounds. You aren't allowed to pick the peaches yourselves but all you have to do is walk inside the store and buy what you the A/C. Who can beat that?

A closeup of the blackberries. See the red color?

Sitting underneath the pavilion where we were waiting for our hamburger order.
What I forgot to take pics of was the awesome peach ice cream! When you go inside the store you can buy tomatoes, peaches, blackberries, strawberries, pecans, and other veggies plus tons of stuff like peach salsa and soups, salad dressings, etc. In the back of the store you can buy fudge and their fabulous ice cream. We got a peach and strawberry swirl and it was awesome! There were several people sitting on the porch enjoying their ice cream. An awesome nostalgic day!

31 Weeks

I think I'm in the process of making cookies and Korey was in awe over how big I looked, thus the pics. If you look very closely you can see a carpal tunnel hand thingy on my right hand. Fun, fun. 2 months to go!


My parents decided to take an Alaskan cruise and leave their children behind. :( But we volunteered to watch their house while they were gone so we could take advantage of the pool! And because we had discussed spending a weekend in San Antonio before the baby came but I didn't think I could endure a 5 hour car ride. My sister and I alternated weekends staying there with our hubbies and dogs. It was our first time to introduce the dogs to a big pool.

They were peeking over the edge until Korey picked them up and put them on the first step. From then on they were fearless on just the first step and thought they were standing in the best water bowl ever.

We decided that Harley needed to be watched closely because he and Camo spent hours chasing the pool cleaner around the pool and he fell in a few times as he cut around the edge.

This was my lifejacket when I was a kid!

This was the best form of exercise they've gotten because we didn't have to do anything and they entertained themselves by the pool all weekend.
There are no pictures of me I'm revealing because I was wearing a bikini and who wants to see a pregnant lady in a bikini??!!

My Hubby

1. He's sitting in front of the t.v. What is on the screen?

Today it was America, the Story of Us. Usually it's CNN. During football season it's any football game. When we're watching something together, it's usually reality TV.

2. You're out to eat. What type of dressing does he get on his salad?

I've never seen him order a salad as an entree but if it comes with his entree he'll get Ranch.

3. What is one food he doesn't like?

Lately he turns his nose up at anything made with wheat pasta. Someone please tell him it's better for you and it doesn't taste different!

4. Where did he go to high school?

Terry High School in Richmond-Rosenburg (near Houston)

5. What size shoe does he wear?

10.5 or 11

6. If he was to collect anything, what would it be?

Nothing! And that's the truth!

7. What is his favorite type of sandwich?

Ham or cheese, PB&J, the Italian Grinder at Which Wich, or a homemade panini with pepperoni and cheese.

8. What would the husband eat everyday if he could?
Hamburgers and french fries! Or steak. He's telling me Mexican food such as fajitas or chimichangas.

9. What is his favorite cereal?

Today he ate Lucky Charms. I think it's whatever he wasn't allowed to eat as a kid.

10. What would he never wear?

He is so picky about clothes! We only shop at a couple of places for him. He's very particular about the fit and the way the sleeves are. So anything that doesn't match up to that.

11. What is his favorite sports team?

In football season it's any team that plays.

12. Who is his best friend?

Me of course!

13. What is something I do that he wishes I'd never do?

Give him a honey-do list!

14. How many states has he lived in?

Only TX. But he did try to live in Latin America but it didn't work out.

15. Did he play sports in high school?
Tennis for his high school but he's played soccer since he was little.

29 Weeks and Happy Day Celebrations

On Sunday we went to my parent's house to celebrate my sister's bday and Mother's Day. I've been sick for a week and so has my sister and we ended up both bringing our own boxes of kleenex. That's how bad we were! Even Korey has been sick, too.

The view from the top of me. Wow! Everyone is telling me that I'm not going to make it to my due date which is 3 months away!

I love this picture! Here I am at 29 weeks with Korey posing with me. Haha.

Hiding money she got!
Posing with her mock Carrie Underwood tickets for the Oct concert.

Look how skinny my legs look!! The only thing left when my ankles aren't swollen.
Yum!! Cupcakes from The Cake Stand.

My mom decided that since my sister was sick that we could only put candles in one cupcake instead of all of them so that she wouldn't blow her germs on all the cupcakes.

My dad and my brother-in-law.

Happy Birthday to my sister!


Korey ventured off to Argentina for a week - our first time apart ever :( to work alongside his former roommate Kurt who is a missionary there. He also got to do an art lesson with the kids at a local school. Here are some of the highlights (I graciously loaned him my camera for the week!).

This is Buenos Aires.

The church where Kurt works at.

This is Kurt in his backyard grilling meat. Apparently they eat alot of meat there. And croissants.

Guess what's behind the round, curly stuff? Intestines! Yuck.

Aregentina peeps.

Kurt, his wife (who is Argentinian), and their youngest.

Korey eating some sort of hot dog looking thing.

Buenos Aires again.

Korey's school visit where the kids had to translate a poem and he helped them draw pictures of it.
