busy kids...

We have really enjoyed this awesome weather! I find myself running around the house in just a tshirt, because I am already so hot! What is going to happen when it rises above 80 degrees?! I don't know if it's just age, or chasing children, or a combo of both, but it's HOT. So, PJ has buzzed Cole's hair, he now looks 10.

Anna Reed tries her hardest to keep up with what Cole's doing, and loves getting down and dirty which gives me at least 2 heart attacks a day. Cole is even more "clean" than her. He hates his hands getting dirty, but not this sweet pea!

We have also got..... a trampoline! These little monkeys need a way to let some energy out! With basically no backyard, PJ has figured out a way to "install" it into the cliff, that is our backyard. So, it will be like a walk-on. I will let ya know how that turns out. Anyway, Yes, we have the safety net and all, but this was taken right when it was put together and he couldn't wait! If you have little ones please come join us anytime!

Spring pics

We all got dressed to go out for lunch last Sat, and decided once we got in the car to make a stop by Bot Gardens and snap a few pics. Not exactly how we would have dressed, had we planned, but they were just fine. The flowers were beautiful, but the kids tummy's must have been yelling, bc they weren't in the best of moods. We still managed to snap a few cute ones. Oh, and there was a photog there waiting on a client, who had a live little bunny to use as a prop, I guess. Well, knowing good and well I had full intentions of somehow getting that bunny in my "it's almost Easter" pictures, I whisper in Cole's ear "Cole, let's go see that bunny!" Of course he is on board, and we walk over to it. I say "Don't worry, we are just looking, we won't touch!" The nice lady I'm sure knew what I wanted, and says, "here you can hold him!" I snapped away, and got a zillion of Cole holding him, but everytime AR would try the bunny would run away! It must have been bc she wanted to kiss him the whole time.

We spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Botanical Gardens this weekend. After 369 pictures, literally, a kind lady asked if we wanted her to take a picture of all us. We obliged. Apparently, I was the only one still happy to there:)

leggo my eggo'

The kids are now to the age where I can walk out of the room, and they can peacefully play together, without me fearing he will put stickers all over her hair, or force feed, and I mean FORCE, her to take the bottle. AR of course tries to do whatever Cole does, and Cole LOVES bossing her around. (I can hear myself in him:) I know I complain a lot about how tough having 2 toddlers is, but I truly love it, and go to bed wishing I had more time with them every night! This is them having breakfast together in the playroom.

what's new

Check out my new blog which will explain where I've been and what I am up to!:)

Gettin' dirty

Now that I am home more, and it's not freezing, we've been loving the outdoors. We recently went down to Eutaw Al, where PJ's hunting property is, and took the kids. I had never even been there and it's his home away from home 6 months of the year! We took the golf cart and the gator - the kids, and big kids, had a blast!

lovin' the mud - notice he has on 2 different boots.

I'm sure Cole will grow up on this land, what a memory!
