Just the two of us

Me and Cullen that is...his brothers are on a little trip with Mimi and Papa. He is so lonely without them. It makes me realize how much he really loves them and how he appreciates their company. I am missing them as well, and I realize how much they entertain him!! He has been my little shadow since they left. We cannot wait for them to get back!!

Muah Braxton and Mason...hurry home!

Shipwreck Island

We took Braxton and Mason to Shipwreck Island one of the days we were at the beach. We never do things like that, usually when we go to the beach we stay on the beach all day. This time we decided to try out a water park and see how they liked it. It was a lot of fun, even for Brian and I,  we all enjoyed it. It was not crowded and we got to ride everything with no waiting. The boys loved the tube ride where we all rode together. It  may not be something we do every time but it's definitely something we will do again. Next time Cullen will be old enough to go. (He stayed back at the condo and hung out with Mimi and Papa) Here are a few pics...just from my phone that I grabbed  to catch the boys on the ship drop.

We just returned from a nice beach getaway with the family. It was much better than I had anticipated. Cullen did much better than I gave him credit for, he slept well, played well, and ate well. The other two I new would LOVE every second. They have always been that way, and absolutely love being at the beach. It was fun, and the weather was perfect. It was not too hot at all, always a nice breeze. Pretty good for middle of July!

You would think that since we are out for summer I would have more time to blog...doesn't seem to be the case. We always stay so busy in the summer, and this one seems to be the busiest yet. I had surgery, (that I thought would only take a few weeks to get back to normal, and here we are at 4 weeks and I don't see normal yet) Braxton had All-Star games and practices, VBS one week, trips to the lake and the pool, and sicknesses! We have been hit with the stomach bug this week, everybody but Brian. Hopefully he will not get it, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. TERRIBLE!!!So here are a few pics from the ole iPhone of some of our summer happenings. (so far)
Lots of outside time

Occasional nap-time (my favorite)

Pool Time

A little baseball in the rain :)

Lake time

Movie time...or just sleepy time
Me, before surgery...heelarious!!

 Beautiful Flowers from some very sweet friends! To admire from my recliner...the one that I stayed in for 3 weeks!!!!! lol Never knew a recliner could sleep so good.

A little cousin time (AG and Mason)

And lots of ball time watching our favorite player!!
More to come in another post...we are off to the beach next week (hopefully we will all be well) so we will have much to blog about.
