Happy 32nd Birthday Daddy

We love you so much and hope you have a super day....we had so much fun celebrating you with a yummy cake, some new swim trunks and a great Birthday Dinner at Red Robin tonight!!!! We will miss you tons while gone this summer and can't wait for July so you can see us in Chicago!!!! Get some rest and relax because we can't wait to get some more daddy time with you!!!! Happy Birthday!!!!!

Water Balloon Fun

It is so so hot out here that we can't help but find fun ways to keep cool this summer....the kids filled the pool, ate some freeze pops and had fun with Pa tossing water balloons around the backyard!!!! They then had lots of fun soaking Pa with tons of water from the pool...he didn't seem to mind it was 97 degrees here in Charlotte this past week!!!! So much fun...cant wait for some more water balloons soon!!!!!

Our New Flooring Project

We are so lucky to have such a great Pa...he came all the way to Charlotte to visit and while here, he put in new wood floors for us in the lower level of our home.....We love them so much and think they are so much better than all the cream colored carpet we had in here!!!! It was a tough job with lots of demo work and special cutting around all the doors but after 4 long days this floor project is done and looks great!!!! Thank You Thank You...Pa!!! Also, a big thanks for all of the other small fix-it projects that finally got done....that trip to Lowes with Pa and the kids was sure a long one but worth it to get all this stuff done!!! The kids already think their remote controlled spiders work much better on this floor!!!! Here are a few pictures from start to finish!!! We love you!!!

The Little Gym 2011

Mason has had so much fun this semester at The Little Gym....each week he was learning different gymnastics techniques, fun group activities and enjoying time with friends.....he did a great job at his end of the year performance last week and his little eyes lit up when he was presented with a gold medal by his teacher!!!! Such a fun way to lead into summer and gear him up for some summer camp in proud of his hard work!!!

Carissa Enjoying Life

Just a few fun Pictures of Carissa this past week getting ready to celebrate her brother's special proud of him for graduating Preschool.....she is thrilled to start next year at Sharon baptist Church Preschool too!!!! Until then we are hoping both kids enjoy a little vacation bible school this summer after our trip home!!!

Pool Fun at Blakes Birthday Party

We can hardly believe that our little buddy Blake is already 1 yr old!!! Time sure does fly!!! We had a ton of fun celebrating him at the pool with a Chicago Cubs Birthday party....he was too cute and definately enjoyed his cake....the kids had so much fun splashing and it was a nice way to enjoy another hot Charlotte Weekend!!! So happy that we have such great friends and love getting together with them in life!!!

Movies in the Park with Pa

This past weekend we were so excited to have our Pa come stay with us in Charlotte.....The weather sure was hot but we managed to make it out to movies in the park that evening....The kids had fun playing in the sand, bouncing in the inflatable slide, eating cotton candy and we almost made it to the movie: Back to the future!!!! We didn't mind leaving early as it was way hot and the movie may have been a little over their heads for that week!!!!

Mason Graduates Preschool 2011

We are so proud of our little man to have completed 3 whole years at Forest Hill Preschool. He has had so much fun learning and making new friends. He has learned many bible verses, pre-kinder skills and lots of socializing for sure!!! We hope he is ready for a brand new year as a kindergartener next year at Smithfield Elementary School...we love you Bubba Doo!!!
