Cooking out with Friends..

Last weekend we had a cookout at our good friend's, The Hawkins' house. We had a great time hanging out, eating yummy food,playing games, and spending time together. I didn't get to take many pictures but Jamie took a few. We played the game.. Apples to Apples. If you haven't played it, you should. It is a really fun game to play with a group. I guess I had beginners luck since that was the first time I played and I won! Fun times.. can't wait to do it again more this summer! Thanks for a fun night, Shane and Erin. Love ya'll!

Point Clear with the Family..

Our trip to The Grande in Fairhope, Al was awesome! The kids had spring break the week after Easter and were coming down for a visit so we decided to take a beach trip so the kids could swim. The weather was awesome.. we all got some sun and much needed R and R! The kids got to show off their swim moves.. and wow, I was impressed! Hannah and Chase have been taking swim lessons for a while now and can now swim underwater, float on their back and roll over without any floaties.. and Hannah Rose is only 3! I couldn't believe it.. they did so good. They loved the indoor and outdoor pool as well as the hot tub. We had fun riding bikes, eating yummy seafood, playing in the sand, swimming, shopping, watching the canon fire, playing croquet, playing DS, dancing to Party in the USA (hannah's favorite and she knows the chorus.. so cute!) and just making memories! I so cherish the moments we all get to spend together and can't wait to add another little one to the bunch. Looking forward to Memorial Day weekend at the lake! Hugs and kisses to my three babies.. I miss you and love you so!!

Happy Easter

"He is not here, for he has risen, as he said." Matthew 28:6
Isn't this cross just beautiful. I just had to take a picture from one of the local churches.

I hope you all had a great Easter! We sure did! I've been eating too much candy and chocolate.. but that's what you do on easter.. right? We went to the early service at church and then drove down to Selma to spend the day with the grandparents. Mom and Dad went down yesterday and my sweet momma and Nanny cooked a delicious lunch! Nothing like good ole southern food.... ham, green beans, carrots, broccoli salad, new potatoes, mac and cheese, deviled eggs, and rolls! Yum! I wish I had some more of it! We enjoyed the day with them and even got to play our favorite card game.. Phase 10! What a beautiful day it was! Missed seeing my other grandmother.. she got the stomach bug!

My sweet nanny... I love her to death!

Can't wait to see some very special people this week! They will be here tomorrow! Yippee!! I am so excited.. can you tell? My two nephews and my precious neice and my brother and sis n law will be here! Haven't seen them since Christmas and I am so excited! We're heading down to the beach for a few days and I'm so pumped! I'll be back with pics soon!
Looking forward to a short work week! Hope you have a great week!

Last Song

Yeah! It's finally out at the movies and it is AWESOME!! If you are a big fan of Nicholas Sparks like I am.. you will love it. He doesn't disappoint at all! Miley Cyrus wasn't the best actress for the part but she did a pretty good job and I did love the song at the end that she wrote. If you are a reader, then you MUST read the book first! I always love the books more than the movies! They are just more detailed but I love to see it come to life on the big screen too. Nicholas Sparks is my absolute favorite and of course, I had to be there opening night to see it! It was a fun night with fun teacher friends.. Jan, Sherry, and April. We need to do it more often! If you haven't seen Dear John yet.. it is a MUST see too! Loved them both! He is an awesome writer and it always makes me sad after I finish a book because then it's over and I have to wait till the next one comes out. =( I haven't read a good book since then, so if you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them. I'm on the lookout for a new one so let me know!

I can't believe it is already Easter weekend. I'm looking forward to church, lunch with the fam and grandparents and just relaxing. Can't wait for some very special people to arrive next week. Much love to my babies.. Hannah Rose, Chase and Carter! We can't wait to see you soon!
Hope you all have a great Easter weekend!
