So thankful you are feeling better and the special time we got together today 🖤
Lots of love and snuggles today with my babies on Mimi’s quilt. I had to tell them about Mimi after school, which wasn’t easy. Jonah was so sweet and said he misses her
Such a fun day yesterday!! Photoshoot that morning with two of my favorite ministries Thrive Moms and Believe Boldly at my favorite studio @thelumenroom 🖤 And dinner and drinks last night with my sweet friend Stevie.
Resting up for Mammaw and Grandpa’s house
She loves when we make it to “the forest” because that is where Mammaw and Grandpa live.
Such a sweet celebration for me ❤ The best cards from my hubby and kids, ice cream cake and some presents too
They pretty much don’t get off this thing!
Happy Birthday to meeee!
They are always putting up with our shenanigans
This girl spoiled me and made me feel so special for my birthday
We had such an awesome weekend and this girl did not want to leave Mammaw and Grandpa’s house
We are all happy the pool is open!! It is still pretty cold, but the kids don’t even care.
Obsessed with your magnifying glass
So thankful for Jackson made such a fun friend this year
Ready for his school play
Jonah wanted a photo with the big boys
Makeup day with Momma and her friends at Neiman
Why does the baby have to grow the fastest!?! We had such a fun morning at Muffins with Mom 🖤She makes me feel so loved!
I can’t believe someday I’ll look over and she will actually be big enough to ride next to me…this is her fave spot to sit while we wait.
They pretty much swam the whole day Saturday…we had to dry off before heading home from a pool party and this is how we did it.
Grannie and Paw Paw came for a visit!!!
Haircuts by Dad
He asked for a lightening bolt and dad delivered
Second year I got to spend Mother’s day by the pool watching my babies swim!!
A little trip to the local nursery and all we left with was some local honey and one honey stick; Julianna wasn’t mad about it.
Snocones and a game of memory after school to celebrate our star for completing her STAAR exams this week 💫…and Julianna’s brain freeze face is everything!
His freckles have really starting coming out over the past few weeks and I’m obsessed
Just doing her thang!
Last day of school
The first thing you asked me when I picked you up today was, “Is it summer now????” YES baby girl!!!
Found my favorites today!
Headed to Marion to celebrate Mimi’s life
I loved spending time strolling Main street as a kid…a lot has shut down since then, but the old buildings are still filled with so much history!
Main street is filled with painted Rhinos…The kids loved trying to find them all
We stayed at the historic Elgin Hotel in Marion and it had so much character. I also found out that for a short period of time my great grandparents owned this place!
Seeing this church brings back soooo many memories. Everytime we would visit on a holiday or Sunday, we got to walk to church with Mimi and Gigi (my great grandma). They both were such a big part of it and I know they are missed here!
Not sure what i’d do without these two goofballs.
Any excuse for Mimi to throw a party, she would be on it!! Pretty sure I get my love of hospitality and decorating from her! Every year on Halloween, her house was the place to be. She had the prime location in town and a gift for making everyone feel welcome and loved! To honor this, they set up a little candy table
Pretty sure my kids were in heaven and very full of sugar!
We spent the rest of the day back in Derby. We decided to campout at our house for the night. It was fun seeing these babies back in the house they came home to and spent their first years in
The sweet Banister Family hosted us for dinner. I was so thankful we didn’t thave to take the kids out to dinner and that they got to play with their friends
After church pizza with the Watkins crew
Jackson pretty much wins the teacher jackpot every year. Thankful for another wonderful year and this awesome teacher 🖤
How the last week of school felt for all of us!
End of Year Party for Jonah at Pump it Up
Jocelyn’s End of the Year Party
Jocelyn loved her teachers so much and is already missing them!
Doesn’t travel without her squad.
When mom takes you to the candy store..
…and buys you giant smarties
Summer and last day of cast!!!
If you need us, we will be here!
When they aren’t swimming, they are playing WAR on repeat.
Jonah’s last day and now officially a kindergartener
This kid has gained so much confidence in the water
Give us all the blue water and sunshine!
Camping trip with friends to celebrate Stevie’s bday
Aftermath of camping without allergy meds
She asked Daddy for a date to Chick Fil A and her dreams are coming true tonight
He was pretty spoiled at Cooks Children Medical Center and I don’t think he wanted to leave, but so glad he is feeling better and we are all home and healthy!
Peace out Cooks Children
He got to go to Baseball Camp today and had so much fun. He woke up so excited; it was like Christmas morning…
I got to go back up and watch him play for a little bit/make sure he was doing okay. Thanks Amy Strathman for being such a sweet friend and keeping the other kids so I could go do this! And for feeding us dinner tonight!
He may not know much about baseball yet, but he sure looks good
It’s official, he’s obsessed
Summer is in full swing over here and we had the best time with these friends today!!
