We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Mr. Larry Strikes Again

The boys got a huge surprise last night after we came home from dinner in Beeville.  Mr. Larry loves to send them things that fires up a boy's imagination.  This time he sent them an Army tent and some other military surplus bags. 

Zephyr with his new boonie hat and allergy nose atop mom's pickup.

Saenz is hankering to put up the pup tent.

The bags needed airing out.

Mr. Larry, Both boys can not say thank you enough.  Both are outside this morning, working hard with dad so, they can put up the tent if the winds die down.  It will be a fun day and with the wind a very interesting one.  Mom will take pictures of them attempting military manuevers. LOL

PSSSSSSS, Mr. Larry (Grumpy Gramps) be watching for a package in the mail.  The boys picked it out for you since you send them tales of the kitties and raccoons.

Got the tent up yet? Are you going to let them camp out tonight? I imagine that the thought has crossed their minds.

I am sure they will be having some great fun!

Yeah!Nuttin' like having a rattler or two crawling in the sleeping bag at night to get warm.

The old cowboy's tale of putting a rope around the sleeping are will keep out the snakes is a wife's tale.(Nuttin' personal intended)

Hey Melodie, We got it up. Yep they love it. LOL Well Saenz grew up on an Air Force base thus the fascination. Zephyr is just following big brother.

HEY Larry, Thanks! I want to start a militia commune. Whatcha think?

Hey Jen, The boys are seriously Happy Dancing across the yard.

Wascally, I saw two rattlers on the road. NO WAY am I letting them camp out during snake mating season.
