I went for a nice 5 mile run this morning.
Most the kids were awake by the time I got home.
Cassi was the only one still sound asleep :)
Our fun part of the day was when Aunt Kay and Chalisse came to visit with her little ones.
They had so much fun riding Dave's motor bike and little 4 wheeler :)
We had a nice lunch together and just had time to sit and talk.
Johnny came after he was done visiting with his Dad.
I just really enjoyed it.
Aunt Cin came down and chatted with us for bit as well.
I just love to sit and just be with family :)
For dinner, Gramps took us for some pizza at Pizza Hut.
On the way home we did some sight seeing around town and he showed us the house that his Dad grew up in.
It's in bad shape now and Brent wanted to get out and check it out a little bit.
We were there for quite a while.
There are still some beautiful things around the place that I would just LOVE to have!
When we were getting ready to leave, a few doors down a guy starts yelling at us to leave.
We hurry and get to the car and he keeps running at us.
Dad goes up to him to explain what we were doing, no harm intended,
Well, as he is yelling all kinds of F-words and stuff at us he run past Brent and towards me as I am taking the little ones to the car.
Well, this guy was obviously drunk and it was pretty scary, as he runs by Brent, Brent knocks him down, like shoves him and he hit the ground.
I mean, he was running towards me and the kids, so I am so glad Brent shoved him down.
But the kids were so terrified and they were now in the car, crying and worried about what was gonna happen.
The guy got back up and Dad had his hands tied up so he was stuck right there, couldn't go anywhere.
He's still cursing, Dad is trying to calm him down and let him know what was going on.
Gramps come out of the car to help explain.
This guy kept going back and forth like he understood, then he would starts swearing again.
The neighbor lady came out because of the commotion....
We explained to her and she was like, oh ya, I know the family you are talking about.
Then she tries to help us calm the crazy guy too.
Next, there comes a guy from across the street, and come to find out, he is Aunt Fays son.
So he totally knows the family and is vouching for Gramps etc.
This guy is just crazy drunk and high on something, who knows what....
The crazy guy says to call the cops and Brent says, go ahead, call the sheriff....that's my brother :)
Finally these two take him away to try and calm him so we can get in the car and leave.
It was just ridiculous!
I feel bad because we were having such a nice time going down memory lane with Gramps.....
No harm was meant.
Yes, we were trespassing, I get that.....but the whole situation was so over the top because he was so drunk and who knows what else.
I guess I won't be asking him about some of the stuff I saw laying around that I wanted to see if the owner would sell to me......
When we came home, we saw that Kallie was there.
Her family bought the house up the street and they are remodeling it.
It will be so fun to have them right here!
There are also some cute other neighbor kids and they all played for a bit while RaeAnne showed me around the place and what they are gonna do to it.
She's my kind of girl :)
This is the fence that Brent and I redid over 17 years ago.
Every weekend, before we got married, I would come up and we would do some kind of big project.
One week was fencing.....another was de-feathering and cutting off turkey heads!
Those were some awesome times!
And definitely prepared me for what was to come in my life as a Matthews :)
