Cullen has been trying so hard to get his feet to make the peddles go round and round on his trike. He finally succeeded this weekend. He was so excited and has been riding all over the place ever since. He is so proud!

...And then there were three...

Three baby boys in my bed! I am going to have to get me my own room! It used to be just Mason and Braxton coming to get in our bed at various times in the night. Cullen has always stayed in his bed until this week. This is what I have rolled over to every morning this week...
I don't even hear him come in, he is as quiet as a mouse. I guess he is because he knows if he wakes me, I will put him back in his bed. Smart boy!!

Grandparents Day

Braxton had Grandparents Day at his school this week and he was so excited to have his Papa there to represent this special day. I think it made Papa's day as well, he loves getting any opportunity to spend time with his boys. I hope Braxton stays excited about these types of things for years to come.

First Day

Oops just realized I never posted this!! Oh well better late than never :)
Another first day in the books! Boys had a great day and we are looking forward to a fantastic year!!

The Dirtbags

So I am so far behind, and I have had the entire summer that I didn't blog about! I knew I needed to hit the highlights because tomorrow I will need to post "first day of school" pics!! I cannot believe our summer has come and gone...it always goes so fast!!
The Dirtbags have kept us pretty busy this summer. There haven't been a lot of weekend that Braxton or Mason wasn't playing ball. We spent a week at the beach for the World Series and I have one word for that...HOT!! Thank goodness we got a shower every now and then to cool off. One day was even rained out. Braxton had a good time hanging out with his friends and sharing this week with them.

Evan, Taylor and Braxton at the pin swapping

All Braxton's pins from the different teams. Some traveled a long time to play ball!!

Cullen, keeping us all busy 

 After we returned home we had several weeks off and his coach had them a party at his farm. Braxton and Mason had the best time, and I know if we had something like that we would never see them. They love the outdoors and this was right up their alley.

Ending the party with a little game of baseball...imagine that.

Beach Break

This is way out of order because I am having to play catch up on the blog...so far behind! We were able to get away for a little beach break in April and it was fabulous. We knew it would be awhile before we had a weekend free (bc of baseball) so we took full advantage. The weather was beautiful and the boys always enjoy being at the beach. The water was FREEZING but it didn't stop them from getting out there. We are looking forward to our next trip down south very soon!
