Happy Memorial Day!

We had such a fun long weekend, but it sure did go by fast! 

Saturday, we took the girls to the the gentry safari. 
They loved it..
except for the "yucky birds" (in the words of Addi) that come up to your window. 
Addison was not a fan... and neither was I! 
They had baby monkeys and A thought they were great. She giggled and would have sat there for hours watching them. 
It was so fun looking and feeding all the animals. Addison has already asked when we can go back.

Sunday, the girls got to spend the night at Gigi and Pops house while Brent and I got to have a date night and attend a sweet friend/Delta Gamma sisters wedding. 
Leah was a beautiful bride. They even included their lab in the wedding. 
Titus was the grooms-pup.
It was fun seeing old friends and getting to catch up on life!

Monday we got back to parenthood again. We had lunch at my parents and then hung out at home and snuggled our teething baby and whiney toddler! ;)

We had such a fun Memorial day weekend. We are so thankful for the men and women who have fought and are still fighting for our country so we can go do these fun things. And a special thank you to my Dad for serving 20+ years and my brother who's journey has just begun! 

Have a great Wednesday!

Mr. Sunshine

It has been beautiful this week.. So after all the rain from the last, we spent lots of time outside! 

We met my mom at the park for a fun picnic and to play on Monday.  
The girls loved the sunshine! 
For Mother's Day I got my mom a painting class to Junque 2 jewels. We went Tuesday night and had so much fun!  
We chose to do arkansas door hangers and they turned out so cute! 
If you are local you need to go-- its so fun! 

Wednesday, we stopped at a local strawberry patch to pick strawberries. Both girls loved it, we will defiantly have to go back!  

Hope you enjoyed the sunshine and warm weather as much as we did. We are looking forward to a long weekend of cookouts, weddings and family time!

Another year done...

Thursday, Addison had her last day of kids day out. She has had such a great year and has enjoyed her teachers so much. She looked forward to Thursdays every week! 
Here is her 1st and last day. She looks so grown up and sassy doing her pose! She has already asked when school starts again and is looking forward to getting to go two days a week next year.

Brent was gone all last week to Mexico so I had a lot of girls time with my sweet girls. We enjoyed lots of nights walking and playing even though the weather has been chilly! 
Friday afternoon the girls were beyond excited for daddy to come home! Addison asked about every 10 minutes how much longer... I was thinking the same thing! Ha
We have enjoyed daddy being home all weekend and all our family time but we are ready for warmer weather this week and sunshine!

Life lately in iPhone pics

Life has been crazy lately between school, appointments, birthdays, and just handling two kids, I have found myself having less time to blog and let's be honest... When I do have the time, being on the computer is not how I want to sprend my "free" time. 

Since the weather has been nice and hopefully stays that way, we decided to get our flower beds looking better then... Well Dead! So of course we had to make a trip to Home Depot and we HAD to ride in the car cart! 
How is Saylor old enough to ride with her big sister?? 
It was so cute watching S copy A with grabbing the steering wheel. Why don't all shopping carts have these??

Saturday, we celebrated Gigi's birthday with a girls lunch ..
And then had dinner at Gigi and Pops house with everyone. 
My girls sure are blessed to have such a great Christian grandmother and role model. I pray I am half the mom she was to us 4 growing up and still is today. I am thankful for the good example she has shown during the good times and the hard times. We love you Gigi! 
Mother's Day was a great day. I enjoyed hanging out with my sweet family, relaxing and ending my day on a movie date with my mom to see "Moms night out" .... It was great. GO SEE IT! 
These two sweet little girls have fulfilled my dream of being a momma. They make me laugh constantly, stretch my faith to the very end some days, and bring Brent and I so much joy! 
They truly are daily reminders of Gods grace, love, mercy and forgiveness in my life. God has taught me more then I could imagine by being their mommy. I can not wait to see Gods plans for their lives... And how he is still working on me!  
Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all you sweet mommas! I hope you had a great day and feel appreciated!

Weekend getaway!

This past weekend Addison and I took a little girls trip to visit my brother and his wife in Little Rock. 
It was so fun just us two. Addison talked the entire way there ...just about everything!  I loved listening to all her sweet little comments and dreams of the future. 

Saturday, we went to a local carnival called Toad Suck Daze. Addison had so much fun playing in the sand, riding the ponies, and eating the yummy fair food! 
That night we visited with family .. 
And headed back Sunday morning.
We were so excited to see Daddy and Saylor! 

It was such a fun weekend just A and I. Sweet memories I will always cherish!
