March Bucket List

Emily at They Call Me Mama and I are teaming up again to highlight our Bucket Lists for March!!  Here are a couple things the Slaughters are looking forward to…

Dallas Zoo
We tried hard to make it to the zoo in the fall, but our zoo day was cold and rainy.  So…now that the weather is warming up, we’re trying again!!  My kids LOVE the zoo!  They will be SO excited!

 Nixon (and Smith) start tee-ball this month.  Don’t worry…there will be way too many pics of them in their cute little baseball pants!!  Adorable!!  (This was Nix and our old neighbor, Case, playing catch last spring.  We miss you, Bishops!!)

Western Day at School
The kiddos and I all dressed up for Western Day 2013.  (I taught at their preschool last year…didn’t want you to think I dressed for western day and then headed to get groceries…haha!)  They usually have fun activities planned for the day.  Nixon’s class is having a “Cowboy Cook-Out” for lunch…which I think consists of a Cotton Patch kid’s meal.  Ha!  I’m sure the cowboys enjoyed stopping at Cotton Patch, right?

Spring Break Fun
I don’t have anything officially planned for the week of spring break, but the kids and I always have a blast!!  Not sure what we’ll do, but we’ll have fun doing it!

St. Patrick’s Day
We’ll sport our green for St. Patrick’s Day!

 My boys in green…Bowen is cracking me up!!

Pinterest Crafts
I’m going to be really intentional about all those Pinterest crafts I’ve pinned….actually doing them!!  Ebby Lee is ALL about crafts.  With her going to kinder in the fall, I feel the need to soak up every second of crafting with her.  

March and the warmer weather means lots of grilling outside!!  Which is perfect for me, it means not a big dinner mess inside!

A Little Backyard Love
Our backyard is in need of a little lovin’.  (Tab is super excited about this being on my bucket list.  I guarantee it!)  Our backyard is looking drab.  (This isn’t our backyard…just a pic I googled.)  But…for ours think lots of concrete around the pool, lots of outdated landscaping, and right this second…maybe you should imagine a nasty pool that needs some MAJOR help!  

I just want to add some fun color to the backyard (to break up all the concrete).  I want to update the plants.  And…for sure we need to give the pool a MAJOR clean!  Hoping it will look more like this picture by April!  I can always hope, right??

    When your backyard is done we'll bring the burgers and we can grill while the kids to Pinterest crafts, k? My backyard needs a MAJOR overhaul as well. I count yardwork as a workout, so that's a plus! hahaha Thanks for the shoutout girly!!!
