Splish splashing!!

We really miss our big pool at the old house!!!
The plan is to have it moved at some point, but for now I filled up the kiddy pools for the kids to splash in today.  They had a blast.

Even Sawyer enjoyed splish splashing in his "birthday" suit!!

Jaylee also has a new hair cut for summer!!
And now that I'm thinking of it, today is the first official day of summer!!

Sawyer tried to make his big escape!!

Well they only lasted out there a little over an hour, because it just got really hot and I need to pick up more sunscreen!!

I am so lucky to be able to be home with my kids.  I try not to take it for granted.  It's not always easy or fun.... but moments like this make it all worth it!!

Peace and love....

It was a wonderful weekend!  It was so nice to catch up with family.
Family and friends came from NY, FL, NC, MI, MD, and WV.  I had a hard time getting everyone on camera, so I stole some pictures from facebook!!

I'm sorry if I didn't get any pictures of everyone on here, feel free to email some to me and I will get them on here.

We appreciated everyone coming to Brian's party.  I know it was a long drive for a lot of you.  I also am so grateful for all of the help I received.  Everyone chipped in and everything came together so perfectly!!

Peace and Love......

And he's off!!!

Let me start off by saying how much Sawyer loves his big sister and big brother!
It's so cute how his eyes light up when he sees them!

Sawyer has officially started to crawl!

He does what I call the "inch worm" crawl!  He lays flat on his belly, brings his knees up, and then crawls forward.

He loves being mobile and going to the toys he wants to play with!

He actually crawled over to the couch and pulled himself up on his feet today!
I couldn't believe it.

He growing up WAY too fast!!
My baby is going to be walking before I know it!

Peace and love....
