Bieber Fever

Lee and I surpised the girls today with a trip to see Justin Bieber on the last weekend of their summer vacation.  Needless to say, the girls were pumped! 

We started off with a trip to the FedEx Forum to pick up concert t-shirts and then headed to grab some dinner downtown before the show.
Blues City Cafe is one of our faves!
I think the girls liked it too!
It was so stinking hot outside (yes it felt like 109 degrees!)...
that we had to stop off for some refreshing slushes at Wet Willies.
We stopped off for some pictures in front of the FedEx Forum, which is a really nice venue!
We were invited to the concert by Lee's client (and our friend), Denise.  She has a luxury box at the FedEx Forum, so we were able to watch the concert in absolute comfort.  Thanks Denise!
The girls were impressed!
How Lee does Justin Bieber...laid back!
Waiting for the concert to begin.
We saw some opening acts we didn't know, but we also got to see Sean Kingston (love him!), Iyaz and Jason DeRulo.  Here's Sean Kingston...
And here's the real deal....Justin Bieber!
The girls go NUTS!
Justin floating around in the heart...girls love this!
Lee joins us down front and LOVES it!  Look at that smile!  :)
The girls had a blast and Lee and I survived Bieber Fever!

Little Big Planet Girls

The girls are obsessed with their game Little Big Planet lately...and Lee likes it too!  Looks like a pretty fun game, if you like that sort of thing (I'm the only
non-gamer in the family!).  Here are Anna Grace and Sarah in action!

We're enjoying the last of our carefree nights while we can.  Next week video games will be replaced with reading and homework.  Boo!

Just Crazy

It's been so crazy lately (yes, I know everyone is busy, definitely not just me!) that even though I have my camera charger back, I still haven't made time to take many pictures.  Here are a few of the little two that I took last week... just so you don't forget what they look like!

See, I told you I was crazy!
Harrison's in the background....not sure what to think! 

The big girls are with us this week, so I promise to get their pics taken, uploaded and on this blog pronto!  Tomorrow's already Thursday...I better get busy!

no pictures....boo!

I left my camera charger at the condo when we went to the beach.  I didn't ever get around to ordering a new one until the camera finally died.  Unfortunately, I've not been able to take pictures for quite awhile now and it just feels...weird.  The new charger arrived today...conveniently when there are no little children around to photograph.  :-(  I'm so ready for all the kiddos to come home so I can make up for lost time and fill up my memory card with sweet smiles.

Camera or no camera, we've still been busy.  The kids go back to school in two weeks....that's right....two weeks from tomorrow we will have a 5th grader and two 2nd graders.  The summer has flown by!  I think the girls are ready to go back to school, but the mommy and the daddy aren't necessarily ready to tackle the nightly homework.  Ready or not....here it comes!  We've bought school supplies and happies for teachers, had backbacks monogrammed and located lunchboxes.  I've ironed countless outfits and just about have everything ready for these kiddos to start school.  Wheew...I'm tired already!

Harrison starts his new preschool on August 9th, so he's moving on to bigger and better things too.  He'll be at Safe Haven preschool this year and will be getting prepared to start kindergarten next fall.  We're excited about his new school and can't wait to see what fun things he'll be learning this year!

I guess that's it for now....it's just not the same without the pictures, but I'll add more soon.  Happy Wednesday!

Sunday Afternoon

We spent the afternoon relaxing in the pool...we had a great time and the kids are pooped now!

The weekend definitely wasn't long enough...hope yours was great!

Independence Day!

We had another great time this year at Bonnie and Harold's annual 4th of July bash.  We ate lots of fabulous food, played in the water and just enjoyed hanging out. 
Beautiful backyard!
Ann and Candace
Fay and Can
Ben and Lee...with the infamous ice cream!
Ann and Linda
Kirby...the most fun he's had in years!
Anna Grace, Sarah and Makenzie loving the squirt guns!
Brantley and Cameron have much smaller versions!
Uncle Harold is the biggest kid of all, but Brantley and Braylen are loving the pool too!
Taking an ice cream break!
Cameron and me...getting some hugs in when I can!
I thought I'd taken more pictures, but unfortunately I didn't end up with pic of everyone.  The whole family was there and we all had a blast.  Thanks, Bonnie and Harold!  We had a fabulous 4th!

Too Quiet

Things were a little too quiet one evening this week.  When that happens I usually get suspicious....but these 4 were just relaxing with a little TV.   Love that they're all together!
