2 Years have flown by just like that!

Can't believe I even remember the password to this account!  Tons of things have changed since my last entry.   Adyson is now in the double digits, 10 years old going on 21!  She is in the 4th grade and still a straight A student, obsessed with all sports, and continues to be a big help with her brother and sister.  Ava Lynn is in Kindergarten now and has adjusted wonderfully!  She is also a perfect student, loves basketball, boys and jumping on the trampoline!  Kanon Ray just turned 4 last month and is a big ball of energy.  He is always getting into things he shouldn't be.  He is such a sweetheart and can melt you at the drop of a dime! He knows how to sucker his mama!  

All 3 kids are looking forward to playing ball this summer.  Ava and Kanon begin their practices this week!  Daniel is coaching Kanon's Tball team.  They are the Astros and to be honest I am a little nervous about Kanon.  He tends to be the drama king and I can imagine him puckering up if someone gets the ball before him.   I will be coaching Ava's team with my friend Camille.  All the team's were thrown into a hat and the first one drawn would get to be the Cardinals.  Lucky for us the one who they picked did not want the Cardinal's so we were drawn the second time around!

Easter has come and gone and we had one of the best Easter's ever.   We went to Papa Elmo's and Memaw Jane's this year.  We ate way too much good food and then had an Easter Egg hunt!   After the kid's did that a couple of rounds we gathered up the poles and headed out to the pond for some afternoon fishing!   I had forgotten how much I love to fish and plan on spending several summer days out at the pond with a cooler full of juice boxes, pb & jelly and some music!   

I will leave you with some recent pictures from this weekend.  Now we are on the countdown to summer and looking forward to tons of lazy days and cool activities (courtesy of Pinterest).

Writer's Block

Wowzers...its been quite a while! SO much has happened since my last blog. My 7 year old is now 8, and our summer break has come to a closer. So I am now a Mom to a big 2nd Grader. I can't believe it. Where does the time go? Here are some pics of Ady's first day. She did great, she is an old pro and it really showed.

Adyson sitting at her desk waiting to learn :)
Adyson & her teacher , who she absolutely loves!

Kaylee , Ady & Brandon, what a great group of kiddos in that class! I am so pleased with all the parents in there. We are gonna have some great parties! I am so proud of my big girl, she is maturing and surprises me daily with how sweet and sincere she can be. She loves her baby brother more and more everyday. She also still has Brandon as a boyfriend, going on a year now, can you believe it? They actually talk too! Its not like the boyfriend /girlfriend I remember in school where we never talked to each other. They talk alot, hang out on recess, and since I am friends with his Mommy we get to do alot of out of school activities together. Works out nice, Kim and I have decided if they break up it will be harder on us, I'm sure there will be tears coming from our eyes :( But for now we will enjoy this young love :)
Check back tomorrow, I have tons of stories to catch up on and will be updating daily. Cross my heart, pinkie swear... So come back here tomorrow for more fun!

Lil' Explorer

Kanon is becomming such a little toddler here lately. He is into absolutely everything and wants to do any and everything his big sisters are doing. He loves flashlights so I let him take one with him to lay down with him for his nap. I went in to check on him a bit later and this is how I found my little guy.

Pure Bliss

Gotta watch these 3, they will run ya over in a heartbeat! Oh how I love to watch them ride, however Kanon's ride obviously requires a little pushing on the other end. Most of the time his big sis Ady will push him around the house a few times until she tires out. Ava loves her ride-which is really meant for Ady. It is a Polaris and goes 7 mph, its quite a site to see her manuver this thing around. She has came so close to smacking into my tahoe, it would def. put a good dent in the car and her head. Ady is having a hard time fitting on the little 4 wheeler these days, but still thinks its tons of fun to go splashing through the mud on. These little rides have entertained us all summer long and hopefully will last many more!

What can be more fun than a waterhose and a trampoline? Oh and wrestling your cousin... Makes for a great time. I have some awesome pics of these guys having a blast. The best part was when Adyson had Luke down and had a worm in her hand, I saw luke shielding his mouth from the slimey guy. Luke managed to knock Ady off him and squirt her down...they have such a blast together!

Best part of a hot day is spraying yourself off with a cold water hose :)

We have definately got our moneys worth with our trampoline. We have had ours since Adyson was about 2. We lost our cage around it during the ice storm but it seems to have become more popular without it. I am just waiting for the day that we have to take one of them to the ER for a cast.

A few days ago Kanon had his first jump lesson and was successful!!! As you can tell by the grin on his face he is a new fan of the trampoline!!! If only his sisters would let him have some alone time to practice up on his flips :)

Hope you guys are enjoying the cooler weather, we sure are! It was nice to pull out a chair and my favorite magazines and catch up on all the celeb gossip while my kids played outside all day and night. I love days like that, gave me a bit of fall itis. I am starting to crave those fall days!!! I am sad that my blog has been a week apart, I will try hard to not let that happen again. Hope everyone has a Happy TUESDAY tomorrow!!!

Summer Weekends Fly!

Its amazing how fast the weekends go by during the summer. This weekend Luke & Lawson stayed with us and we had a great time! I love getting all the kiddos together and watch them play. They always seem to have such a great time together. I wanted to post some more favorite beach shots, I am slowly getting them edited but here ya go, some more favs from our trip to Orange Beach!

Beach Babe Ady

Adyson had such a blast at Orange Beach this year. Was the first time her eyes saw the Ocean and a beach. She was very brave at getting out there with the waves, even though her paranoid mother and grandma kept calling her back in haha. Adyson is becomming such a good swimmer and I am so proud of her. I can't believe my baby will be going into the 2nd grade this year, seems like yesterday we were playing outside in her baby pool and she would talk up a storm, such a smart girl from day 1. She makes me so proud and I know she will continue to do so through the years. She is beautiful on the inside and out. I love you Ady Grace!!!!

She always loves to be in front of the camera, always wanting to "strike a pose"

Didn't have time to warn her about this wave so instead I took a pic of it, and what a cool picture it turned out to be. No harm done except a great memory from our summer on the sand. Tomorrow morning Cory is bringing Luke and Lawson over for me to keep all day and the boys will be spending the night with us. The girls are super excited for a sleepover with their cousins. They have had such a fun summer together already, can't wait for even more memories together. I will make sure to take some pics and post them of our Bunkin party. Going to bed so I can get rested up for the gang!!! Night Night
