Beach Boys

I decided I'd better update the blog with pictures of our first beach trip to Destin this year before we head out on our next one soon! We had a great trip in April with my sis, brother-in-law and nephew. We went down a few days early and they came shortly after. The boys had the best time. John Parker still says "Mommy I miss the beach!" John Parker was totally into the sand castle building he didn't really go in the ocean alot. The water was still super cold. Jake loved the sand! He thought it was fun to eat! Oh he was such a mess! The beach was actually easier than going to the pool. Jake pretty much stayed away from the ocean and at the pool he just thought he could swim and not be in his infant float. Another favorite of John Parker's was going to play putt-putt. That boys loves some golf! We of course ate some yummy food. Some dinners were better than others. Eating in restaurants is so hard right now with Jake. ha! I absolutely love the beach! Nothing better than spending all day on the beach having good quality family time! Can't wait for our next trip with the Bowmans!

Mother's Day 2011

We had a great Mother's Day just our family of four! Yes I'm on a roll...two holidays actually staying in Huntsville. I had a wonderful Mother's day! I did miss seeing my mom and Glenn's mom. Glenn got up early with the boys and cooked breakfast and then we went off to church. I must have been an extra special mommy this year because I got two sets of flowers(roses from Glenn and spring flowers from the boys) along with some sweet cards and patio furniture. We were in desperate need of patio furniture. We left our old furniture in Montgomery at the old house and haven't bought any since we moved here. Glenn picked it out all by himself and he did a great job. Even bought some cute pillows! We ended the day with steak on the grill. Yum! Jake did have a rough little Mother's Day he's been screaming the last few days. We are praying it's not another scream phase for him. Whew! I can say honestly Jake has made me work hard for my mother's day this year! ha! I love my boys more than anything in this world! Before I had children I had "plans" of what I wanted to be and do when I grew up. Ha! Then becoming a mother changed everything. Everyday I just live for the simple moments with my children. Nothing else matters in this world but my family. I will take the title of mommy any day over any corporate title. I now know what I want to be when I grow up...a mommy!
