Patrick Reunion

We surprised my grandmother last weekend and the whole family came to town for a family reunion. This was the first time we had all been together in 5 years!! We had a great day together and hopefully we can make this an annual event.


growing up

I love taking my boys back home, to where I grew up in Laurel. I have so many memories here..and both of my grandmothers still live there. They get to run around and do the same things I remember doing as a child. This lake at Meme's house provided lots of entertainment for me & my cousins - catching fish & turtles, riding the paddle boat, exploring, throwing things off the pier....we did it all! Warner & Jackson love going to Meme & Mamaw's house, and I'm so thankful they get to enjoy doing the same things I once did.
I can't believe how big Jackson looks in these pictures - where did my baby go?

Super W & Super J

We celebrated the boy's birthdays this weekend with a Superhero water slide party. Super W turned six, and Super J turns three in August. This was a labor of love, but worth every minute to see their excitement. They had a BLAST!!! Happy Birthday sweet boys!!!!


Buddy & Kissy visit

end of baseball, fishing, & swimming

Baseball is over! I'm happy to have our summer back...but sad that it's over! Our little team improved so much over the season. We lost the first five games and never lost another game. We came in third place in the regular season and then, after 3 wins, became tournament champs!! Warner learned & improved so much during the year and had so much out there with his team! We can't wait for next year.

Jackson was such a great sport during the season! He will start tee ball next year, and our lives will get a little busier with 2 playing, on different fields,and sometimes at the same time! 

We've been doing a lot of fishing...

and caught some crawfish (and catfish) in our traps! 

Jackson took swimming lessons with Mrs. Julie and loved it!! He is a little fish!!
We are loving our summer - lazy days, lots of swimming & playing, and looking forward to our family vacations!
