My Birthday Weekend

For my birthday we decided to spend the day at the lake with my oldest bestest friends!! My mom and Lee just moved and have an even better lake place so we headed there. Here are some pictures from our day. Oh and did I mention they have a water slide off their pier. It rocks!!

Leah, me, Amy, Jackson, Emma, Brooks, and Braegan
We've been friends for FOREVER

 She had to check out the slide but wouldn't go down.

 Me and Brooks!

We had so much fun! Me, Amy and Dustin were the only ones brave enough to try the slide besides Lee and I didn't get a picture of him going down. Maybe next year I can get Ben to go down it! He was too busy playing photographer for me!

1st week of 1st Grade...done!

What a great way to end the 1st week of 1st grade! We've definitely taken full advantage of having a pool in our backyard while we live with his mom!

Emma's 1st day of 1st Grade!!

Oh how I could cry. Where has the first 6 years gone!! My sweet, loving, strong willed baby girl is starting 1st grade! She's beautiful inside and out and I pray her 1st grade year is just as great as kindergarten! I took off again this year to take her to school, have time with her before school and pick her up so I could hear all about her day!

 Getting ready to leave!
Getting out of the car! No tears this year! She's getting so big!
I love you more then you will ever know Emma Bean! I pray over you and your teacher and your precious life EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!!

Our Family Beach Vacation

We got up bright and early with hopes we'd make it down there early. Little did we know traffic was going to be a nightmare getting out and on the road. We made the most of our almost 7 hour trip there and no it shouldn't have ever taken that long!

L.O.V.E. this picture!
(wish I knew what she was thinking about)

Cutie pies

Playing in the sand

 Even after having a swimming pool in their backyard this summer, they still love to swim!

Emma helped Brooks with his! They did such a good job.

Someone else already started this hole but he had so much fun digging deeper!

Working on her first turtle, she made a couple!

Emma got this picture for us! Too bad my camera on my phone
wasn't better because she did a great job!

 It rained one morning so we got out to ride around. When it finally quit we went down the big long pier at the state park! It was so peaceful out there.
LOVE this picture!

pretty girl!

 He loves his Ipod!
We had such a great trip just the 4 of us!! We played, we dug in the sand, we swam, we shopped, we had a blast!! Can't wait for next year.

Our vacation starts now...

We leave for the beach tomorrow. Today is all about what Emma and Brooks want to do before we leave though. We headed out to the train station for a picnic and a trip to the park. We are headed South tomorrow and we can't wait!

Cheer pics

We had cheer pictures yesterday. It was extremely hot but Emma did so good and so did the other girls. Here are some quick pictures I took. 
Mylee and Emma throwing rocks in the river after we were done! They had so much fun.
