Beach + Friends = Fun!!

Two weeks ago some friends of ours (Gregory's & Meadows) headed out for the beach. We had been planning a trip for a while and finally came up with a weekend to get away. No kids might I add. Don't get me wrong we missed the little stinkers the whole time we were gone but it was nice to have lesisurely dining! Basically we stayed on the boat the entire weekend. Eating lunch while we were out on the water and dinner at night. We had some really good food and great weather while we were there!! I can not thank God enough for putting some really good friends in my life. I knew no one when I moved here and am so thankful for the families that have been placed in our lives. Below are some pictures from our weekend! Hope you all are doing well and enjoying Summertime- my favorite!!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

What joy it is to be a mother. The day we had Joseph changed me forever. From that tiny baby to almost 3 I can't believe how much he has grown. I thank God everyday for him! I hope everyone had a great weekend!! Our's was very busy and fun filled!! Friday night we had Relay for Life. What a great event!! Our team consisted of about 13 of us and almost everyone was there with kids it tow. It is such a joy to see the children running, laughing and playing with each other throughout the night. I have been very blessed for the wonderful people God has put in my life here in Butler County, Alabama. Very scary moving and not knowing a soul almost 6 years ago to finding wonderful christian friends you can depend on! I love you guys! Saturday morning, Joseph and I headed out to Centreville to spend the day with Mom since we were going to be here on Sunday. We swam and ate BBQ and visited with other family throughout the day. The kids swam ALL day long with no nap. We headed back south around 7 and Joseph was asleep about 10 minutes into the ride and slept until this morning. He then took a 2 1/2 hour nap. He was worn out!! Today we got up and headed to church and then to Jason's grandmother's afterwards for lunch. It was a very low key day around the house this afternoon which was fine with me. Going to be a busy week this week. I had a wonderful Mother's Day and I am so thankful for my own mother. She has taught me lots, listened lots and cried with me lots and I love you so much Mom!! I hope you all have a great week!! Here are a few pictures from the weekend I would like to share!

His Daddy made over!!
