Beach Boys!!

Let me start by saying my wonderful husband got me a new camera or "real" camera as I call it. I got a Canon Rebel and LOVE it! A little too much, taking over 200 pictures at the beach is a little obsessive if you ask me but I just can't stop.

At the end of June we took a trip to the beach with both boys and Uncle Brian, Aunt Robyn and cousin Cooper. This was Jake's first trip to the beach! He did sooooo good! I will say it is a little different having two kids versus one at the beach. Glenn and I did alot of trading off kids and we hung out inside more than usual just because we didn't want Jakey to get too hot. We only got one family pic on the beach because we were hardly out there at the same time together. The beach was the prettiest I've ever seen it! I think we went a the perfect time! We didn't see one tar ball or any oil. John Parker is at such a fun age right now! He just straps on his puddle jumper and away he goes swimming in the pool! He loved digging in the sand at the beach too! Jakey loved the pool! He just kicks those cute little or big ole legs. I took a bunch of cute dresses down to the beach to wear when we went to eat. But we decided it was too much work to get everyone ready so we ordered take out every night and ate on the balcony looking at the beach. It was WONDERFUL! We stayed in our t-shirts and shorts and let the kids run around or watch a movie and we ate some yummy food! Cousin Ryan was in Destin for dance so he got to come over and visit with us one night too.

I love family vacations! I'm so blessed to have a wonderful family to go on them with!
Here are a "few" pictures from our trip!

I would LOVE to see this everyday

Catch Up

I'm going to attempt to catch up on this blogging thing...between broken arms, hospital stays and screaming baby I've just had my hands a little full. I was almost tempted to retire the ole blog but I don't scrap book so this is my only outlet for documenting the lives of our little miracles.

Anyways, we had a great June filled with Father's Day, tball party, and a beach trip. I used to hate Father's Day but now my hubbie gives me something to celebrate! He is such an amazing father! Our children couldn't be more blessed. He takes bubble baths with JP, plays outside, prays with them, sings songs and gives lots of hugs and kisses. Oh and a big one, he wakes up every morning and does Jake's morning feeding while I sleep :) We went to church on Father's Day and hung out at the house. It was nice to slow down. We made Glenn a photobook from Shutterfly, which has become an annual tradition and got him a gift certificate to a neat Barber shop to get his haircut(yall should see how long his hair is getting). It's so hard to buy a gift for a guy that has everything.

Up next, was John Parker's end of the season t-ball party. John Parker had a love/hate relationship with t-ball. He loved batting but hated playing in the field! Many of his games he would come to the bleachers "to take a rest". We didn't push it! He's only 3 and if he didn't feel like playing we didn't make him play. We had a pizza party and he got his first trophy! I know we'll have many more of these to come!

Happy Father's Day!

So excited!

One Proud Daddy!
