Up and Down!

When we were in Huntsville, we ventured to the mall for a bit. When Avery saw this, she decided she really wanted to try it out. At first she loved it, then halfway through she got a little nervous, but ended her time with some very, very high jumps!

The entire time Avery jumped, little man screamed the entire time! He acted like his feelings were hurt that we did not offer for him to have a turn! So, a turn he got. This picture does not show the sheer excitedness that his squeals told.

Braden's First Haircut

Braden has the cutest curls that sometime flip out, but other times decide to go to sleep, thus making him look like he has a mullet. I have been putting off Braden's first cut because once a child gets it, they lose their baby look and you can never get it back! After great urging from Daddy, I decided it was time to trim up the back a little.
I was happy with the finished product because he still looked like a baby, and was able to keep his curls, only without the mullet! We were not able to get the "after" picture because he was ready to "gi dow!" (Get down in Braden language.)

Where To Start?!

So. Far. Behind!

Cruise was great! Pictures are on my facebook. I'm sure everyone has seen them by now. My goal is to post one video from dinner one evening..such silliness. It was such a nice treat to get away and enjoy alone time with my man. We met some really nice people along the way, experienced some very fun activities (para-sailing, snorkeling, Mayan ruins, etc.), and enjoyed great weather! It was nice to get back to see the kiddos! Here's to sending a GIGANTIC thanks to Kenny's parents for coming to spend time with them while we were gone.

For the past three months I have been working on a huge project for Kenny's football team. Gladly, I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel. When I'm completely finished, I will post about it. It's fun to see how far it has come since the beginning. Gives me a sense of accomplishment other than cleaning the kitchen and keeping the kids alive. :)

After the cruise, we were home for a few days, then headed to Huntsville for our yearly coaching clinic and reunion with sweet friends! It was fun to spend several days there catching up and letting the kids play with old friends.

We got back from Huntsville on Saturday, and I left for volleyball camp on Sunday. Camp was a great success! The girls clicked well, and played very well! We made it to the Gold bracket for the first time since varsity has been going to camp there! Avery and Braden had a great time with Daddy. He enjoyed getting to spend time with them too, but I'm pretty sure he was glad when I got home Tuesday to take back over mom duty. He showed his appreciation with beautiful flowers, a clean house, and a very sweet card with a nice sentiment written inside.

Kenny had to work a longer day Wednesday to catch up and get ready for football camp, which he left for today.

It's been a crazy month, and it's only going to continue from here!

We look forward to Kenny's brothers, Tom and Kirk, coming to visit next week. I have something for volleyball everyday as well, Kenny continues gearing up for football season. Somewhere in there we sign papers to refinance our house.

I'm sure everyone else has just as crazy, busy lives. I didn't know what to start posting about since everything deserved an individual post, so I wrote the Reader's Digest version. Maybe that will serve as my catch up and I will feel like I can pick up from here.
