Super Why!

As part of Jalen's birthday gift, Li, Uncle, and Brooklyn gave Jalen SuperWhy tickets and VIP passes to meet the characters. He enjoyed the show and loved getting the autographs of all the characters. It made us think back to our good ol' Disney trip of standing in line, waiting for the character, and then moving on to the next one. He enjoyed the whole night and passed out from exhaustion. Thanks Li and Uncle!

Missing the Beach...

Definately still wishing we were at the beach! It is great sleeping in our own beds, but let me tell you that if I had my own bed at the beach, I'd never leave! I have to say that I miss seeing my sisters and the children each and every day.

Beach Fun!!

We had a great time at Myrtle Beach this past week. It was a lot of fun with the kids (and tiring too!). They all enjoyed digging in the sand and making holes. Jalen absolutely love the ocean. He was not scared one bit of the waves crashing. Brooklyn and Ryan enjoyed it too. It is hard to believe we'll have one more crawling around next time we go. More pictures to come...

Visiting Grandnana

We had a great time visiting Grandnana this past week. We went by and saw her twice. We disrupted the whole place with the kids running up and down the halls shooting the people with their Star Wars guns. We figured the place needed to live up some! She's doing great. We treated her to Chick-Fil-A one day, which she seemed to enjoy. We can't wait to visit with her again. We got her room spruced up a little bit more with a new wreath and a photo collage!

Our July 4th!

Rock Climbing

Jalen rock climbed today for the first time! He did amazing. At first he was saying he couldn't do it and after I drilled him to not give up, he took off and was just flying up. I was proud to be able to watch him think his way up to the top. He would find some things that would work and others that wouldn't but eventually he got it!!

Happy 4th of July

Thank you to all of the men and women who serve our country and continue to let us live free! 

Sometimes I just like to go back and remember how little my baby once was!

Trip to Grandma's

Not long ago we took a trip to Grandma's. Jalen had been wanting to get on the boat so bad, so on Sunday we were finally able to. We had a great time going to Shakelford, the Morehead City and Beaufort waterfronts, and just around in the water. Jalen got to fish. I got sunburned. We had a great time and it was wonderful weather.
