First Day of School

Today began our first day of school.  Parker at his school in a 3 year old class and Braden beginning a new school- Georgia Cyber Academy.  There are many reasons why we chose this new venture and maybe soon I'll share, but for now all that I have the energy to do is leave pics of my two amazing boys on their first day!

I love these silly boys!

Vacation Part 2

We took the kids to play putt putt one evening and they loved it.  Braden made two hole in ones and Parker basically put his ball by the hole each time and knocked it in.  Several nights we went to get ice cream and of course we got family pictures of the beach.  It seems like it gets harder each year to take one picture where all five of us look decent at the same time!  It was a great week and really special since we got to spend it with not just our family of five, but my parents and grandparents also.  On Thursday of vacation, Braden got sick on the beach started running a fever.  He didn't want to go back to the condo, so he slept in a beach chair on the beach under the canopy.  He was pitiful.  Thankfully, it only lasted twenty four hours and he was able to enjoy our last day on the beach Friday.

Braden's hole in one!

Vacation 2013

The second week of July we headed back to our favorite vacation destination, Madeira Beach, FL.  It was a much needed break after the stress from Braden being in the hospital the week before.  The weather was awesome...much better than June of last year when Tropical Storm Debbie wrecked our week!  The kids had so much fun swimming, looking for shells, and using their boogie boards.  Emersyn wasn't just an observer this summer, like she was in October of last year.  She was all in the ocean and jumping into the pool!  She wanted to do whatever her big brothers were doing!

Date night with my honey
