So our story begins over 11 years ago in April of 2000 on the beach in Florida! When I went on a weekend getaway w/ my girlfriends little did I know I would be meeting my future husband and the father of our 2 beautiful children Kaden & Kendall. This blog has been created to share our daily life w/ friends & family as well as creating a keepsake diary that my children can one day look back upon. I love to share exciting firsts about the kids, mommy superhero moments as well as the blunders & especially pictures from our parties & travels. I hope that you will enjoy reading about our daily life as well as our journeys and maybe read something that your family might find useful.
We spent the July 4th weekend w/ great friends and family. It was the perfect weekend! Lots of cookouts, lots of sun and lots of festivities w/ laughing! We enjoyed a fireworks show at the club on the 3rd, which Kendall was terrified of so she sat in the car w/ Keith :( The actual 4th was spent w/ a relaxing day at my parents pool w/ my sisters and the kiddos. My parents put out a great spread of food for all of us to enjoy and even some slip n slides to entertain the kiddos. It turned out to be one of those perfect days that gets etched in your memory forever.
Kaden has started to try out another sport this summer! Baseball season has started and it has turned out to be one of Kaden's favorites for sure so I'm sure we will be spending a lot of time at the ball field in the future. He actually pays attention when he's on the field, which is huge! He's not kicking dirt or hitting his teamate next to him as most of his teamates are doing. He also slides into home base every time he runs the bases. He thinks the dirtier his pants are the better he has played!
Before you judge...let me say I did not buy these matching outfits! My sister Lindsey and my Dad picked them up on one of their West Coast trips last year. I decided to wear them to a family dinner a couple of weeks ago in honor of my other sister Jenna's birthday and my niece, Kylee. How cute is this...she is going to hate when I show off this picture at her 16th birthday :)
