Now, to get on with todays post! We decided to do a "Remember when" post, where we talk about the good ol' days! *winks* I am in the yellowish color, and daddy will be using the corn huskers red color!

Lets begin!

Remember the time when...


I would pretend to sleep so you would carry me in from the car?

Remember the time when... 

I surprised you with a date and I made a little book with date ideas so you could pick what we did? 

Remember the time when... 

You you would sneak into our room as the tooth fairy and we made it a game to catch you in the act of leaving money to prove that you were, indeed, the tooth fairy? 

Remember the time when... 

I wanted you to love playing tennis as much as I do, and so I brought you to tennis lessons and you wore your cowboy boots. After the hour lesson, the teacher said, "Brooklyne has got some natural talent, even in cowboy boots." (I was kind of embarrassed that she brought her cowboy boots instead of wearing tennis shoes!)

Remember the time when... 

We went on a birthday drive to our storage unit and I got to crawl around all our stuff! I remember that was super fun, then after that, we went to a store and bought birthday party balloons. (which we then made funny faces in the reflective foil on the balloon!) It was like Cam-Wow....


Remember the time when... 

I decided to take you girls on a off-roading adventure! We took the old green truck out in a cornfield (after it had been harvested *winks*) and cranked the music up really loud! You all talked about that for a long time, saying how fun it was to have been bounced around in the backseat. XD

Remember the time when... 

You helped me practice driving a stick shift with a jeep. We drove circles and circles in a church parking lot! I didn't kill it once! (Or maybe I blocked that part, who knows.)  

Remember the time when... 

You were a baby, and I would try and make you laugh. I would pretend-sneeze and you would laugh so hard you would spit up your breakfast milk/cereal. It sometimes came out your nose! (side note: you loved to feed our dogs {Allie} from your highchair plate.) 

Remember the time when... 

When I was driving our little Yamaha motorcycle (50cc) for the first time by myself. I first started off, and Daddy was helping me balance for a little bit, until I took off (on accident, mind you.) I kept going faster and faster, but I remember trying to brake. (The gas was twisting the throttle, and I thought it was the brake.)  All the while, dogging apple trees in the field as Daddy was running after me yelling "brake!" Yup, so I kept going faster thinking I was putting on the brakes! Finally, I hit into some bushes, and there happened to be a hose draped across two trees that stopped me. That was a adventure... and another of my guardian angel scenarios! 



Remember the time when... 

You and your sisters brought me "butterscotch pudding" to eat... turns out it was leftover thanksgiving gravy! Not what I was expecting! I probably tried to return the favor with a prank jellybean! *grins*

Remember the time when... 

Either of us get upfront in church, we always double wink at each other. It's tradition! *wink wink*


 Remember the time when... 

We double-teamed washing Rosie, if I remember correctly, we both ended up getting soaked! Rosie sure looked nice and shiny by the time we were done, though! 

Remember the time when... 

We both decided to walk along the creek in the wintertime. I don't know how far we walked, but we ended up a long way away from our property! That was fun! :)

Remember the time when... 

I had the bright idea to surprise your mom for mothers day with a shrink-a-dink gift. We had fun making those, but... they didn't turn out as planned (took us six hours.) Although they did made good Christmas tree ornaments!

Remember the time when...

You brought me to paint pottery, we made a gum ball machine money bank! We made people out of our thumbprints, complete with hair, as our signatures! (They also gave us free ice cream which was a plus to that fun day!)



Remember the time when... 

We were on vacation and rode horses on the beach. I got a big Percheron horse (FYI, I don't make it a habit of riding horses...) that was cantering fast, you were right behind me on your gaited horse and I was worried that I was going to bounce right off and you would run over me. In the end, we still  had a blast!

Well, I had a lot of fun "remembering when" with you, Daddy! Thanks for helping me with my Family Forever Month post!

  6. That was such a good idea! I could have a lit’s that long about remember when’s with my dad, too. He’s awesome and I love doing stuff with him! Unfortunately, he’s like impossible to prank. The only times I ever did was because he would give me a charity reaction, (he would just pretend to be surprised) when I was younger.
    Except for ONE time, when my older sisters tied apples onto his stubborn apple tree that would never produce in the middle of the night, and made him really, really surprised the next morning because he hadn’t seen it! That was hilarious. I’ve never seen him s so wound upπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜†
