So...We decided to link up and share about our new company and product!
The Rockin' Razorback
Summerford Designs started after Owen's first birthday. Before Owen's birthday I asked Josh if he thought he could build Owen a rocking horse for his first birthday, because Josh always claims that he "could build that" to everything we see! After perusing the Internet looking for ideas for building a rocking horse with nothing really jumping out at us....we decided he needed a "Razorback" rocking horse. Again we turned to the Internet for ideas with the understanding that "if it isn't on the Internet, then it does not exist!", well apparently the rocking razorback did not exist because we came up empty. We spent a good bit of time debating over what a "rocking razorback" would be. Then we spent the next couple of weeks cutting, sanding, measuring, balancing, and painting the first "Rockin' Razorback". We unveiled the rocking horse at Owen's birthday party just thinking that we had made something special for our little man, and no future plans to make any more.
Owen absolutely loved it! He honestly gets on it everyday...and says "Go, Go, Go" (which is what he says every time he sees a Razorback)
After people found out that we had made the "Rockin' Razorback" and we started getting request for more....we started Summerford Designs, Inc. and the process of obtaining the collegiate license to sell this Razorback product. We weren't sure what this would entail, but we were willing to look into it. A special thanks to Erin for getting us the information and push to get going! We started with what I like to call "baby steps", ie. just looking to see if it was something that we would be able to peruse...But after a lot of prayer and getting through the initial steps, we decided to jump on board. It was a lengthy process, with lots of paper work, phone calls, and meeting...BUT we made it!
And now, the Rockin' Razorback is officially on the market!!!
This Rockin’ Razorback is a unique rocking horse designed for all the “little” Razorback fans. It is hand crafted with quality hardwood and made to last for generations. The rockin’ razorback is an officially licensed collegiate product.
Recommended for ages 2+ with adult supervision.
The Rockin’ Razorback measures 43” long x 24” high x 14.5” wide and has a seat height of 20.5”.

Owen has gotten really good at T-ball. This picture doesn't show case his skills, but he has started holding the bat with two hands and hitting the ball about 6'. The best part is how excited he gets! I need to try and get it on video.

Owen was most excited about getting his face painted. He waited patiently in line while we talked about what he wanted painted on his face....he decided on a baseball. When it was his turn he sat down in the chair, told her baseball, and let her paint about 3/4 of the ball and he was done! ha! So it ended up looking more like an unfinished golf ball....
After family fun night, we headed over to rEcess. We typically have rEcess the first Friday of the month, but with all the snow it had to be rescheduled. It was a little different because when joined another group and had it at a different location, but the kids didn't seem to mind. The theme was Medieval, so large group consisted of princesses, swords, shields, and horses! The kids had a blast having sword fights and horse races.

I think shaking the glitter was his favorite part...
I think Owen ate just as many Smarties as he gave away!
