Spring Break Fun!

We had an awesome Spring Break! It was so nice to have a "stay-cation"! The kids love being outside and actually play really well together right now, so Rich and I are taking advantage of it! 

Monday and Tuesday morning, Lucy Jane participated in a gymnastics camp which she loved! She thinks her floor routine is amazing, the bars are her best friend, and the balance beam is...well...she thinks she's something else! 

Wednesday we spent the morning at my friend Rebecca's and enjoyed lunch before they headed out of town! The afternoons were full of sunshine and playing! 

I didn't snap a ton of pictures, because if you take your eyes of Kaylor for two seconds he goes riding down the side walks! :)

We grilled out and had supper outside! 

Enjoyed Sonic our pajamas! 

And took fun Easter pictures with real life bunnies!

Friday, I wanted to do something fun for Lucy Jane! We had planned to go to silver dollar city but the weather was yucky! Instead, we enjoyed fun things our town had to offer!

Leslie, her girls, Lucy Jane, and I spent the whole day having fun!

We started off ice skating at the Jones Center! Such a fun place for families!  

Then we had lunch, which was an adventure, but I won't go there! :)

We then hit up the pool at the jones center! The girls had a blast!

We went and saw Cinderella! The girls picked out snacks and sat on the very top row of the movie theater!

We ended the day with Lucy Jane's very first soccer practice! Should be an interesting season! 

Thankful for these times with my sweet kiddos and sweet friends! 

Fun Saturday with the Parents!

The kids and I had such a great day last Saturday! We had some work being done in our kitchen and needed to be out of the house. We were also over due a visit with mom and dad, so we drove down and spent the day! 

Mom and I used to spend Saturdays shopping together when I lived in Ft. Smith. I miss the little things like that a lot! It's so much harder to pull off days like that with two kids, but we made it happen! Mom may have been embarrassed once or twice, but it all worked out! 

We had lunch at Taco Bell! It is Lucy Jane's favorite, so she really felt like she scored, but secretly mom and I enjoy our bean burritos just as much! :). Kaylor enjoyed throwing all of our trash away! Piece by piece! In the dirty, nasty, trash can! Oh well, it kept him happy, since it was during nap time and we had plans to keep pushing him! 

Both kids decided they needed to ride in the stroller, and Nana was nominated to push them! :)

We headed back to mom and dads house to hang out! Playing outside, and enjoying the small things are what I love most about family and small towns! I LOVE living in NWA, but I say my church is my small town here! I am a small town, need a network of friends around me, kind of girl! I love who I am because off growing up in a small town! 

Riding his bike!

And if you look closely, the blur way up in front is Lucy Jane! She doesn't lag behind!

So much fun!  Lucy Jane talked my dad into walking down into the cellar with her! I remember camping out in there over night as a little girl! I love how intrigued by the cellar she is, and how willing Bubba was to go down in with her, hurt toe and all!

The kids always take baths and get Into pajamas before we drive home! They had a little system for getting hair done!

We didn't have a big party for Kaylors birthday, so mom had a special cupcake lit to celebrate after they took baths!

I think he felt pretty special! 

I love time with family and seeing smiles on my kiddos faces! The older I get, I truly understand what it is that really matters! Perfect Saturday!

Happy Birthday, Sweet Kaylor

Happy Birthday to the sweetest little boy! I wish you knew how special you truly are to your Mommy! I am having a hard time understanding just how quickly two years have gone by! You are so very loved! 

You have taught me to slow down and enjoy every minute with you and your amazing sister! It goes by way to quickly! 

You bring so much laughter to our home! The funny faces you make keep us all rolling! You LOVE to play and snuggle with your sister!  The evenings with you two are my favorite!

You are attached to your "nu-nu" and I think I am having a harder time thinking about taking it away than you are! 

You love to jump and sing and dance and SMILE! You are a happy boy and bring joy to our home! 

You melt our hearts everyday! You adore your "sis" and she teaches you so much! I love that you have learned to love others and be so compassionate from her! You always have a smile and hug for everyone you meet! 

I pray that grow strong in Jesus and that we can be the example for you that we are to be! We love you with our whole hearts sweet, funny boy! Happy 2nd birthday!
