May Many Trip

The second weekend in May we made a trip into Louisiana (Many) to watch my little cousin graduate. Jacob was the first cousin my sister & I had on my mom's side, and when he was born we thought he was our real life baby doll. I can remember carrying that sweet blonde haired, blue-eyed baby boy on my hips and just thinking he was the sweetest baby ever. I still can't believe he is now taller than me and headed to college!! I was so proud to watch him walk accross that stage and recieve a scholarship. He is such an amazing young man!

I took a couple of pictures before the ceremony but was busy keeping two toddlers entertained during the graduation to snap any pictures.

While we were in Many, Rowynn Faith got her first haircut by her Mimi.

It was apparantely pure torture.

My parents rented this huge bounce house/water slide combo for the girls...for the whole weekend...just for my 1 & 2 year old...being the only grandchildren, they tend to be a bit spoiled. It isn't much better with Grandma & Grandpa Davis. They're also the only grandchildren and tend to also be spoiled rotten!!!

Later on Saturday night we headed to my Aunt & Uncle's house for a graduation celebration.

My aunt & uncle have three boys so RoRo was in heaven with all the footballs and baseballs!

Finley and her third cousin Dennision. My grandmother has 21 brothers and sisters, so what my children lack in first cousins they make up for in second and third cousins.

Finley took this picture of the family hanging out on the front porch.

The next day was Mother's Day and I was so blessed to hear my childhood preacher give a wonderful message. Kyle treated me to a wonderful hour long spa session at The Felax (this wonderful foot spa) and a sweet card. After a quick lunch we loaded up and made the drive back home. I'm so glad my girls are great travelers considering we make the 5 hour trip every other month..and have for the past three years!

It was a fun weekend and great to spend some time with my sweet family!

It's a....

At the beginning of the month my parents came in and spent a long weekend with us. We were able to find out the gender of baby #3 and they wanted to be here for that. My mother-in-law also joined us at the sonogram. I feel very blessed to be able to share this exciting time with my wonderful momma and mom-in-love. And of course my hubby was there!

Well, much to my surprise we found out that baby #3 will be our first BOY!!! We are so excited and a little nervous about having a son for the first time! And naming him was super easy, we've always had just one boy name....EMERSON KYLE.

We took the girls to our playgroup which met at this great indoor playground area at a local church. Apparently word hasn't gotten out about this wonderful place because for the two hours we were there our group had the place to ourselves!!! It was wonderful.

We spent the rest of the weekend enjoying our family time. For the third year in a row we went to Sandy Lake Amusement Park. It's this quaint (very old) little amusement park near where we live.

Finley LOVED all the little rides!

Rowynn was a tad too short for the rides, which broke her little heart. Thankfully it was healed once she got a hold of the cotton candy.

Then it was Mimi's turn!

I think they rode this three times!

It was a wonderful weekend!
