Two Sweet Grandmas

Over Memorial Day weekend, Josh and I loaded up the boys and headed to see his Grandmothers. It was a long trip but we made lots of sweet memories with two very special ladies. The first stop was in Yoakum, Texas (between Austin and Houston). It's about ten hours from our house. Josh's Grandmother, on his Dad's side, lives there along with his Aunt and a few cousins. We had lots of fun visiting with them.

Here's a picture I snapped of Josh, the boys and Grandma Floyd. She has leukemia and has been sick for awhile. We were very grateful we got to spend time with her. Please keep her in your prayers.

This was Grandma Floyd's first time to meet Jack. He loved playing with toys and getting lots of attention but I think most of all he enjoyed his first ever donut the most.

Next, we loaded the car again and headed to Bridgeport, Texas which is close to Dallas. Josh's Grandmother, his mom's mother, lives there. We were able to take her out to dinner and let her see the boys. I have a sweet video of Jack walking into the arms of Grandma Thomas but I can't get it to upload.

It was a quick trip but we were so glad the boys were able to spend time with their Great Grandmothers. We hope to see them again soon!

Football Camp

Over the next week, I'm going to try and get caught up on blogging. We will start with football camp that was back in May. The Shiloh coaches do a youth football camp every spring. Peyton was excited to go again and Parker was excited attend for the first time.

Josh and his two favorite campers.

Peyton had a lot of fun with some of his best buds.

Being a coaches kid sometimes has it's advantages. Parker and Jackson were able to attend a year early since their Dad's were on the field.

Jack and his buddy Kane were there watching all the big boys. It won't be long till they are out there too!

It was a fun week and the boys were glad it never rained. They are already counting down the days till next year's camp!

Jack's 1st Birthday!

This week we celebrated our baby Jack's first birthday! I can't believe he is no longer a little baby. It seems just like yesterday I was holding him for the first time. He has changed so much in a year and it has been so much fun to watch.

We had family party at my parent's pool. It was lots of fun.

Josh and Aunt Meredith with all the cousins.

Taking a break from swimming for some pizza.

Our little family with the birthday boy.

Jack had his own smash cake.

Peyton and Parker really wanted to have a water balloon fight. Here is their "prepare for domination" faces with cousin Reese.

So much fun!

Jack was blessed with many presents. Thanks to all our family for coming.

Here is what Jack is doing these days:

-He is now taking steps! I've counted up to nine steps in a row.
-Still prefers crawling most of the time. Everyone comments how fast he crawls. He's quick!
-Taking 2 bottles a day, one in the morning and one at bedtime. However, he doesn't seem too interested in them anymore and we are dropping bottles very soon.
-Finally mastered the sippy cup.
-Eats whatever we eat during meal times.
-Doesn't seem like a picky eater so far.
-Now has tubes in his ears and is feeling much better.
-Some days he takes two naps and some days he take one long nap.
-Most nights he sleeps 7:30pm-7:00am.
-LOVES his brothers and thinks he is as big as they are.
-Weight: 20 pounds even (12%)
-Height: 28 inches long (5%)

We still have a little guy and couldn't be more proud of him. What a blessing he is to our family!

Schools Out for Summer

Another school year has come and gone for Peyton and Parker. Peyton's done with his last year of pre-school, K4, and Parker finished 3 year old pre-school.

This year on the last day of school both of the boy's classes had a parties. Parker's was on the play ground. There were bubbles, hop scotch, chalk and many other games that the kids enjoyed outside. We are so proud of our Parkerman and all he's learning these days. He's now cutting with scissors, writing his own name and loves to paint.

The week before school ended Peyton class had a bike day and everyone rode their bikes in the parking lot.

On Peyton's very last day of school they had a water day. Several water games were set up outside including water guns and water balloons, which were his favorites. Parker came too and they both ended up soaking wet.

I can't believe that next year I will have a kindergartner! That just doesn't seem right. It seems like he should still be my baby boy. He's learning to read and loves anything to do with numbers. I am so thankful for the wonderful school that he will attend in the fall.

A couple weeks ago my brother, Rick, graduated from the U of A Law School. We are so proud of him and can't wait to see what the Lord has planned for him and Jessica.
