Way Too Long...

3 weeks. Long time not to blog. In my defense, I was on vacation in Florida for a week of it. And then spent a week recollecting myself, and here I am. Aren't you glad to see my smiling face words. I have a lot of catching up to do, it's funny how I actually miss people I've never even met when I am away and can't read blogs. I really need a laptop lol. Have I even came close to editing all of the pictures from our trip, you ask? No. But I will post a few of the ones I have, just to get back into the swing of things.

Oh how we love the ocean... really wish it didn't take us 12 hours to get there.

Parker hanging out in the pool.

My favorite picture that I took of Addyson & Wilson

Parker James- 18 months old!

We had a great time. Of course I will write more about it later, I just wanted to share a few pictures with you all. Now I need to get back to reading your blog =)

Kadence & Kollins' first swim

18 Months Old

You are 18 Months Old (yesterday) I can't believe it. I know I always say that, but really, I can't believe it. My little baby, so big. Yesterday was a school day for you and I had to work, but afterwards I took you swimming at Aunt Jami's. Your first swim of the summer. Guess what? You LOVED it. Of course. However, you kept trying to swim away from me and I didn't have any floaties for you so that wasn't possible. You are so brave.

On the 2nd you peed in the potty for the first time. You were so excited about it, you were even clapping for yourself. I guess we may try potty training here soon, an adventure for both of us I'm sure. While you are learning more words, you don't find in necessary to use them very often because you tend to get what you want no matter what. I try to get you to use your words more often, but you're just so cute that I have to give you what you want! One day you'll be talking my ear off, so I'm pretty content with where you are. Wednesday we are going to get your curls cut off... I'm excited and a little bit sad about it. However, you are starting to get a mullet so it's gotta go. =) I love you so much and I could talk forever about all the silly things you do to make me smile. My favorite is when I come in the door and you run right to me giggling up and storm, I pick you up and you wrap your little arms right around my head and give me the biggest hug! Sometimes you stay like that for a minute or more and you'll look at me for a second, then just keep on hugging and laughing. You are so sweet!

The sad news is a little boy at school bit you right on the arm yesterday. I know kids do this but it broke my heart to know it happened to you, especially when I wasn't there to make you feel better =( It even left a big bruise..

We leave for Florida in 6 days (where I will take your "official" 18 month photos) and I am so happy to have a whole week with you. No school for you, no work for me, just lounging on the beach and in the pool...

Memorial Day 2011

We had a great Memorial Day this year. We went over to Kadence & Kollins' house to help them set up their pool and grill out. Of course we had to take a few pictures of the kids...

 Pawpaw even came over on the gator and took Parker for a ride to see the cows.

I'm so glad we're fortunate enough to live close to our family so that we have memories like these. After we grilled out we drove around to the cemetaries, then went home. Later that night I went with my friend Gina to see The Band Perry. They were great, and they liked to pose for my camera! hehe

Like I said it was a great Memorial Day, but I definitely did not forget the meaning behind why we observe this day. For those we have fallen for our country, and those we continue to fight for it... Thank you. You are the reason we are free.
