on the farm


Last week, Jackson & I had 2 special visitors come spend the afternoon with us - my college roomate, Jan, and her daugher, Sarah Blake. (Warner was playing with his cousin, Mason, at JoJo & Pops house) Sarah Blake and Jackson were born just 3 days apart!! I remember talking to Jan on the phone the day she was leaving the hospital with Sarah Blake, and wishing it was my turn. I ended up going in to labor that same night! Jackson loved having SB around...he was a little too loving! Thank you Jan and SB for making a special trip to see us. We loved every minute and can't wait until the next time.

Monday afternoon fun!

I am loving this stage with my boys...Warner just turned 5 and Jackson is almost 2. They are having so much fun together! Sure, there are fights and tears...lots of not sharing and tattling, but most of the time - laughing, running, playing, and love. Warner will say, "wanna go play in my room?" They take off running, and I come later to find this...

Daddy Day

When daddy's truck is spotted in the street, their eyes light up and they run for the back door.

Pops was one of Jackson's first words. They love their Pops!

Buddy is their favorite playmate!
Happy Father's Day to all the dad's in our life!!
Happy Father's Day to my daddy: my biggest fan! He was always the loudest one yelling for me while I was playing soccer, or tennis, or cheering. Even now as I am all grown up, he is still my biggest fan! Not a day goes by that I do not feel so blessed to be his daughter. I love you, dad!

I can't believe i forgot to blog about this!! While we were on vacation, we saw lots and lots of parasailing going on. One afternoon on the beach, Gibson & I decided we should give it a try. I am so glad we did!!!!! It was so much fun. It is so peaceful high in the sky, and you can see for miles & miles. We saw several schools of fish and even saw a shark - it was really neat. Our whole family was on the balcony of our condo watching us. We told the driver of the boat which condo was ours, and he pulled us right in front of it. Everybody was waving!! So fun!!

here we go!!

BEACH 2011

We just returned from our annual Rayner/Lively beach trip. We had a great week!! It was Jackson's first time at the beach and he loved the water! He is absolutely fearless and would just walk right out in the ocean or jump right in the pool...I had to make sure the Puddle Jumper was on him at all times!! I'm not sure which Warner enjoyed more - being at the beach or getting to play with his cousin, Laurel. Those 2 play so well together!! It was a great week just to be together as a family. Chris even went with us for the whole week..which was a first! I enjoyed having his help....because these two are hard to keep up with!! The condo was so nice....lazy river, water slide, zero entry pool, and a baby pool. Warner & Jackson both loved the slide, and Warner thought he was big stuff going around the lazy river by himself. Thank you Kissy & Buddy for another wonderful beach vacation!!!


on our way...FINALLY!!! We waited all morning on daddy to finish up on the farm and then 10 miles down the road we had a flat tire!

Lots of pictures below...
