Splash Pad

The weather was nice this afternoon, so we took the kids to the Splash Pad at Veterans Park. It was fun, but super crowded. We're looking forward to going back another day, when Anna Grace and Sarah are home, when it's not so wild.

The craziness didn't seem to bother these two, they had a ball!

Look at those smiles....good times!

Popsicles, Anyone?

We are so happy that Sarah is recovering and has her surgery behind her.  Her throat is still a little sore, so she's still eating lots of soup, but overall she's doing great!  Everyone loves having an endless supply of popsicles in the freezer...

Here's my littlest baby...fresh out of the bathtub and loving his popsicle!

Emma Taylor's Dance Recital

Emma Taylor had her 4th dance recital today.  She did a great job and had a fabulous time! 
Here she is with some of the sweet girls in her class.
This year the girls danced to Joy to the World (the Jeremiah was a Bullfrog song...not the Christmas song) and The Tide is High.  Such cute dances!

Last Day of School

Yesterday was Emma Taylor's last day of school....her last day to be a 1st grader.  While it's exciting for her, it's a little bittersweet for me when I realize just how fast she's growing up.  She's had a fun year being in Ms. Sandy Smith's class!
1st grade was a BIG change from kindergarten, but Emma Taylor has learned and grown alot over the past year.  Now she's officially a 2nd grader!

Sarah is a big 2nd grader now too, but missed the last day of school.  She had her tonsils taken out yesterday and the surgery went just as planned....thank goodness!  Lee talked to her last night and she said she was already enjoying ice cream and popsicles.  :)

Anna Grace is officially our big 5th grader and is pretty excited about changing classes next year.  She's worked really hard in 4th grade and made the All A honor roll all year.  Here she is before her last day of 4th grade!

Harrison moves up to his Pre-K 4 class on June 1st.  Thankfully he has one more year of preschool before starting kindergarten...I'm not ready to send my last baby to "big school" yet!

36 isn't so bad!

Had fun hanging with all the kiddos before my birthday dinner last night!

Beach Day

Today was Beach Day at Saltillo Primary school, so the girls dressed up in sundresses or coverups and the boys got to wear their swim trunks.  Emma Taylor wanted to borrow my sun hat.  It was a little big for her, but she loved it! 

Put on a pair of shades and you're ready for the beach!

Baseball Day

The girls had fun at Baseball Day at school.  Neither of these girls had played on t-ball or softball teams before so it was a new experience for them.

Here they are practicing their swings...
According to the girls, they played at a "real" baseball field with "real" bases!  They enjoyed hitting the ball, but I think they liked wearing the caps most of all!  The last few days of school have been extra fun for these two!

Red, White and Blue Day

Emma Taylor and Sarah are wrapping up the end of school with some fun spirit days.  I found out last night (after ironing other outfits for the girls....grrr) that today was red, white and blue day. 

Here they are ready for school!

Tomorrow is baseball day and Wednesday is beach day.  I'll post more pictures of them later in the week.  It's so hard to believe that these girls have just a week of school left and then they will be 2nd graders!

Bug Catchers

The kids drug out their bug catching kit and decided to see what they could find. 
Harrison didn't catch anything but air, but he was really serious...
Emma Taylor got a roly poly...

Fun times!

{ Happy Birthday, Anna Grace! }

It's hard to believe Anna Grace is 10 years old today.  We had a family birthday party for her last night at Centreville Fish and Steak.

She got lots of fun presents and got to eat some yummy chocolate birthday cake!
She got some new diamond earrings - you have to get something extra special for your 10th birthday!
Happy Birthday, Anna Grace!  We love you, girl!  :)

Wild Turkey

Lee loves to go turkey hunting and he got one today.  The kids were super excited!
Dinner was YUMMY!
