Gearing up for Summer!

Whew! What a busy few weeks we have had. I have been terrible at blogging lately and I can't tell you how many times I have written posts in my head and thought to myself...I gotta remember to write about that.  However life gets crazy busy and my good intentions often get pushed aside for when duty calls. My two little ones are non-stop, crazy, busy...almost all the time so I have to use every bit of energy and stamina just to survive. As my belly gets bigger (um hello 30 weeks!), my ability to keep up gets drastically smaller. I am trying so hard not to miss out on my cuties by being uncomfortable and immobile, I so want to enjoy the summer break with them and do all the things we normally do like the park, pool and splash park...however I am barely able to pack lunches and get out the door without exhaustion! I am constantly reminding myself that they just need love and attention...not non-stop excitement or entertainment.
We have started introducing the potty to Weston and he has not really taken all. I have yet to witness him actually do anything in the potty, Christian says he has tee-teed but I'm not sure it wasn't just a fluke. He loves to sit on the toilet, use tons of toilet paper and flush endlessly...just not actually use the restroom. Nothing like sister making a video of brother on the potty.  I am sure Weston will cherish this picture forever.

We had a fun playdate with our cousins at the splash park, such sweet girls!
Our dear friend opened a snowball stand in our area and we have been making ourselves frequent customers! Red Velvet snowballs are my weakness for sure!

Bre had her artshow at school and it was just precious. She was so proud to show off her hard work. Oh and cake was served so that was a bonus for her!
 Aubrey snapped this one of me and Weston. I just love and adore this boy. Girl cowboy boots and all!
Aubrey is at such a great age when it comes to wanting to learn and soak everything in. She is amazing at puzzles and can finish a workbook in under an hour. She is a total sponge right now and I am so thankful she loves learning. I'm also thankful for her school and teacher who pour into her and help ignite a passion for education. She thinks her teacher is the smartest woman in the world and that she knows more than me and her daddy combined.  Thanks Bre.
We are doing LOTS of backyard water activities because mommy can sit and prop her feet up while the fun takes place! Water tables, slip and slides and pools are just what the doctor ordered!

Christian took Bre on a daddy/daughter date at Chick-fil-A and it was so precious. Bre had a blast and felt so special. Chick-fil-A sure knows what it is doing and had a precious set up.  Complete with dinner, an ice cream bar, face painting and even a rose. I'm so thankful for the relationship these two have...and I can only pray it will keep getting stronger. 

We made the tough decision to find a new home for our Lexie. She was a fantastic dog and was truly a sweetie, but she just didn't need to be in a home with three little ones who nap.  She loved to bark and it drove me crazy! Not to mention that she was spending lots of time in her kennel and that just wasn't fair. We found a fabulous family for her and we are so thrilled she will now get the love and attention she deserves.

Mother's Day this year was one I will not forget! I'll blog about that soon. Here is me and my cuties at church...A little blurry but the best we could do!  So thankful for these precious little ones...they make my life so great.

  1. You are the cutest! Look at your adorable belly. Your kids only need you - do not feel the need to fill every day with activity! There is plenty of time for that! My kids barely remember the fun things we have done over the years. 😞 They do know that their Mama loves them!
