Weston At The Zoo

 Not too long ago, 
Alyssa and I took Weston
to the zoo!
 He loves animals and I think he
had a pretty good time.
And for a boy who has chickens
at home that he actually chases and plays
with, I was a bit surprised that
he didn't really care for the little birds.
But - that's okay!
The birds were obviously more fond
of his Momma, anyway!

 Asher likes to go hiking!
And when he's hiking, he likes to
carry a great big stick.
 He also likes exploring.
He likes to SEE everything! 
 He likes little prairie dogs.
 He likes little lizards.
 He likes little squirrels.
And he even likes these not so
little turkeys!
 But he does not like big huge buffalo!
Actually - he likes seeing them 
from the window of the car, but he does
not like seeing them on the trail.

Weston Visits The Farm

 Weston is a country boy!
He lives in the country and
has dogs and chickens.
 And her really likes
tractors and cows!
 So - we took him to a 
small pumpkin farm hoping he
could pet a cow!
 He did!
But - while he normally LOVES cows,
we learned that 
tractors out rank them!
He spent the majority of his
time at the pumpkin patch playing
on these little tractors!
And it was the tractors that seemed
to produce the biggest smiles!

New Books!

I have been working on these
for the last few months 
and they are finally here!
New Books!
I have boxes of them stashed 
under my bed.
Anyway..... here they are:
To get an idea of what each of the
books are about, just download the
Aurasma app onto your smart phone.
Open it and follow TatePublishing
TatePublishing is all one word.
Then aim the ap at one of the
pictures above.
If you have kids or grandkids around
open the ap and let them aim
the phone at one of the
pictures above. 
A short video clip will play. 
It's pretty cool technology.
And - the books won't release until 
November 7th and November 24th,
but I do have several copies so if you want one
you can purchase one from me,
or from my Etsy store HERE.

Busy, Busy, Busy.....

We have been Busy, Busy, Busy....
and it looks like we will
even be busier in the summer months.
My husband went to Utah last week
and came home with this.
 We did our first event Saturday, in the
small town of Snyder, Ok.
It was a great first event - because it
wasn't too busy, so it gave us
a chance to start slow and learn
as we go. And look..... there is an 
outdoor flavor station - so the kids
can add their own flavors to
their snow cones!
The grandkids love it!
And Grandpa is getting pretty popular.
When he's home - he now gets to answer
the front door, because it's normally
for HIM. Someone wants
a snow cone!
