Watch Out

I never thought that Tallon would get hair! Well, I can finally say that he has a head full of hair! I could not resist taking his picture yest after he woke up from his nap (sorry about the chocolate on his face- he had just finished a "cook" (cookie!)

I love this little boy sooooo much!

Fun with Pop

Tallon and I spent yest morning hanging out my dad or "Pop" as Tal calls him! Tallon loved playing in the sand, walking over to see Bama, Nana and Papa and than SWIMMING!

We found a frog in the pool and rescued it- Tallon was totally checking out the frog- he kept walking over and pointing at it and than we would ask him what the frog says and Tal would go "bibbit" and try to jump- soo cute!

Tallon LOVES his Pop!!!!!!!
Thanks for having us over to play dad!

Splish, Splash

Florence has a new SPLASH PAD!!!!! I almost feel like I am back in Dallas (except this one is fenced in and you have to pay to visit it- but atleast we now have a new option for something to do with Tal in the heat! and 3 dollars is not totally aweful!!)

Pool Party

Heidi, Jason and Connor and Callie invited our Bible study small group over for a pool party last Sat night! We had a blast- grilling out hamburgers and hotdogs, splashing in the pool and running around the yard! They have such a GREAT home for entertaining and we are really going to miss you guys when you move!!! Thanks again for having us over!

You can't have a meal without Oreo's to finish it off! The kids definitely ENJOYED their oreos!

Lake Fun with Family

It has been a crazy month for us- we spent part of the week after July 4th at the beach with my parents, came home for a few days and than headed off last Friday for a full week at the Lake with my entire family! Reeves had to travel back to Florence for work so we really missed him but were thankful he got to spend 2 days with us at the lake.
My brother and his wife live in Alabama and my sister and her husband live in Kentucky so needless to say, we don't get to see them very often at all and were THRILLED to get to spend a week with them! Tallon loved all his aunts and uncles and totally enjoyed playing and swimming with everyone!

Our little boy has become quite the little fish this summer. It is hard to believe that he SCREAMED the first time we made him wear his lifejacket on the boat. Now you can not hardly get him out of the lifejacket... or the boat! We are very blessed because my parent's lake house is located across from part of the wildlife refuge so it does not get very crowded on the water at all. There was hardly any other boats out so Tallon got to enjoy "cruising" on the jet ski with his daddy, Pop, Mimi and uncles and he also went on his first float ride ( with Daddy or Pop and VERY SLOW!) He kept saying "I wanna go" anytime anybody else was on the float so I gave in and he did great! Before you think I am a bad parent- we would NOT let our child do this if there were other boats out on the lake!!

Pop carried a slide down to the lake and Tallon thoroughly enjoyed sliding into the water- here are some fun videos!

Tallon enjoyed helping drive Pop's boat!
I hope you enjoy the slideshow- it was a Fun week with Family!

Zoo Fun

Last Thursday morning, we packed up our gear of strollers, sippy cups, snacks, and toddlers and headed off to the zoo (in 4 packed cars)!! Thanks soo much for planning this Jennie and Carlisle! We had 9 kiddos among us- ages ranging from 14 months to 3 1/2! What a fun morning it was and we are already looking forward to our August adventure at Edventure Children's Museum!

All the kiddos LOVED the aquarium and watching the bright colored fish!

These 2 boys were the only boys (besides Makgill and Parson who are both 3 1/2) among all the girls in their age group- I think they are going to be GREAT BUDS! they both are very active and LOVE LOVE LOVE outdoors!!
Even as the youngest (for the time being!), Clara Beth (14 months) LOVED the zoo!

Mrs. Lia and Abbey having some sweet mommy- daughter time!Break time and... SNACK TIME! notice that Tallon has a ball cap in his hand- he thought that Luke's hat was extremely cool and kept taking it off Luke's head- soo sorry Luke! Thanks for being a good sport about it!

Lilah, May I PLEASE have some of your goldfish?!
Tallon was very content to ride in Mrs. Jessica's stroller next to Lilah (also close in age)
....and the goldfish!

Mrs. Julie and Luke

The giraffe was leaning over the railing eating carrots- All the kids loved getting a close look at him! Here is Aron and Makgill in front of the giraffe- evidently the giraffe needs a few lessons in camera posing because he would not cooperate for the picture=)Sweet Olivia and her mommy Courtney watching the giraffe eat!
On to the ELEPHANTS!

Luke and Tallon checking out something?! We loved getting to hang out with Mrs. Julie and Luke- Luke and Tal are pretty close in age and we are looking forward to lots more adventures with these 2!
Makgill and Parson burning some energy in the gorilla exhibit! We all enjoyed a break indoors- it was HOT!!
On our way back to the cars after a FUN morning, now.. on to Chick-Fil-A for lunch!Makgill was the last to fall asleep in our car- it was a very peaceful ride home!
