Another Weekend Gone.

Another weekend is gone and we are already halfway through August...holy cow!!! I took Friday off work so I could attend Kyle's Battalion Organizational Day. It was a lot of fun! It was out at Smith Lake, they had a huge bounce house for kids, basketball, volleyball, horseshoes and everyones favorite, the Dunk Tank!! We got all 4 battery commanders to agree to go in the dunk tank, it was $1 for 3 balls. I do believe that Alpha Battery raised $239 haha. I have some pretty funny videos of the commanders being dunked. We spent about 3 hours there and headed home. We had grocery shopping to get done and we all know how crazy to commissary is on pay day so we just hit up Sam's Club (I think we spent over $400 on groceries for the two of us, really?!?! lol)

HHB Commander getting dunked!

Saturday, at about 10am we headed out to Sicily Drop Zone. Kyle was going to try and get on a jump that was happening, but we got all the way out there and they had too many soldiers and not enough chutes. Go figure. We went home and relaxed a little while before Kyle's soccer practice at 5:30, it was incredibly humid, I am so ready for fall! I am excited that he will be playing for the battalion team again, we had so much fun last year, hopefully they can take the championship this year instead of a runner-up finish like last year.

This was a picture I took on our way to Siciliy Drop Zone! I Iove watching Paratroopers jump!!

Sunday was cleaning day!! My hubby is pretty awesome when it comes to cleaning, he vaccumed both downstairs and upstairs, cleaned our cats room (yes, Fishy has his own room) and did laundry. It was nice to get the house back in order as I feel like I have been slacking lately. I was pretty excited for dinner that night because I had gotten up at 6am to put a yummy pork shoulder in the crock pot, my first attempt at making pulled pork was  HUGE success! It was yummy!!

Hopefully this week will be relatively easy, my boss is on vacation for the week. I plan on becoming a hermit and staying in my office to get stuff done I can't when he is here.

Have a great week everyone!!!


  1. I'll have to get your recipe for the pulled pork. I have a crock pot but I'm pretty clueless beyond queso!

  2. Sounds like a ton of fun that video is to funny lol.

    I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend.
