Will Graham Celebration

We went to the Will Graham Celebration. There were lots of bands and Will Graham (Billy Graham's grandson) spoke each night. It was really fun. The kids did great. We were really unsure how they would sit through a sermon but we thought we would give it a try just to see and we were both very proud of them! :) It was really cool to see how many people came to Christ during this event.

Memorial Day

My mom and dad invited us all over for Memorial Day. They smoked lots of chicken and ribs for lunch, and we swam just about all day! The kids are little water bugs! They all love to swim. Kaitlyn remembered how to swim from last summer so she was all over the pool. She was even jumping off the diving board, and swimming with her face in the water! She is so brave! Noah loves to jump off the diving board too with his lifejacket on! He says I just pop right up! Mom, Tiffany & I ran to Old Navy for their 40% off sale while the kids watched a movie with the guys. Thanks mom & dad for planning such an awesome day! We had so much fun! We love you!!!

My jello & cool-whip fruit salad. Perfect colors for Memorial Day!

Emma & Gabe come to play!

Emma & Gabe haven't come over in such a long time! So when Tiffany asked if they could come over for a few hours while they go hear Jeff's sister sing we said of course! They boys loved building with lincoln logs and the girls wanted to have "girl time" in Kaitlyn's room. There was alot of giggling going on in there! We had mini pizzas and strawberries for dinner. Then we headed outside to jump on the trampoline and burn off some major energy and excitement! It is funny how kids voices elevate so much when they are excited! Maybe I notice this more because Kasey was asleep at the time. We came inside when they all decided they were hot and tired. I was just starting a movie for them when Tiffany and Jeff came back to pick them up. They were not ready to tell each other good-bye! So Tiffany decided it would be a perfect night for sleepovers. We packed Noah's little backpack and he put it on and said "Bye Mom" as he walked out the door like it was an everyday thing! He LOVES going to Gabe's house. But I still had to get my hugs & kisses before he left, I don't care how old he thinks he is! Kaitlyn & Emma had lots of fun together! They took baths, and then watched Barbie Island Princess! They went right to sleep after about 20 minutes of giggling. It was lots of fun having Emma sleepover and eat breakfast with us! I can't believe they are old enough to have sleepovers! Time flies by so fast!!!

Crazy boys!!!

Sweet cousins

Dinner Time :)

Trampoline fun! Noah being "cowboy puppy"

Good Friends

Alan, Jennifer & Grayson were so sweet to invite all of us over for dinner! They made the best brisket! Kaitlyn & Noah always have a blast with their friends Evan & Rylan. The kids played and were entertained by the daddies while the rest of us girls chatted! We had so much fun. We'll have to plan something again soon!

We went to Aimee and Patrick's wedding today. Aimee is one of my very first friends! I have known her since I was 3, when we lived 3 houses apart. He is a marine, and just came home from his deployment. That brings back memories :) Their wedding was so sweet! She looked absolutely beautiful! We saw some old friends and had a great time catching up and talking about old times!
Aimee and her dad Ray, they have the sweetest relationship!

John, Susan, Alyssa & Jarod Thomas - I love them!

Happy Birthday Margaret!

My sweet friend Margaret turned 27 and had a girls night to celebrate! We went to PF Changs for dinner. It had been way too long since we've seen each other. It was lots of fun to catch up and meet some of her friends. Brittany is 6 months pregnant, so she has a cute little baby bump now :) Margaret, Brittany & I were inseparable in high school. We always have so much fun together, I love them to pieces!
