We have spent most of our days at the pool this week.  It is just too hot to do anything else!

Baxley is now potty trained!!! So, we are now working on Sawyer.  Nonna got him some new undie pants and he did not like that fact that Bax wanted to try a pair on! I am slowly, but surely marking things off of my summer to-do-list!

Tonight we took the kids into town to see the fireworks, they loved them!  I can’t wait for all of the 4th of July festivities!

Great Pool Day


Today, Blake and I took the kids to the pool and it was a perfect day.  The kids had a great time and we are so lucky to have family that loves to spend the day with us!

Sam finished swim lessons and is doing great, I am so proud of him!  The babies love to jump in to anyone who will catch them. Thanks Jac Jac for taking such good care of us!

Boat for the Pond

Sam and E had been talking about how they needed a boat for our pond.  So, E picked one up and came home to surprise Sam with it.

He was so excited!

I love this pic of E!  He just looks so happy and he has been so happy lately!  It makes me so happy!  We have been so blessed and we are truly enjoying it!  Life is GREAT!

Another big hit was the carnival.  The kids had a big time riding the rides!



Sam and Kohen went down this slide and so of course Sawyer thought he should too.  He wasn’t quite big enough so I had to go down with him.  Can you tell how good of a job I did…Ha! Yes, that is him laying sideways beside me.


Kohen Stephens isn’t afraid of anything!  He wanted to ride them all!  E was the only one he could convince to ride the scrambler with him.



Later we took a hay ride to the tractor pull.  Sam was a little disappointed when he realized it was a “pull” and not a “pool”.




We finished off the day with some music on the square.  Adrianne did a great job! Sawyer even ran into his buddy Charlie.

We had a wonderful day!!! Farm Fest 2012= Success!

Farm Fest 2012

Sam was up and dressed for Farm Fest before 6:00 this morning!  It was a beautiful day and E and Brandon even took a break to come join us.



We started off the day by just walking around and checking things out.


Kohen on the rock wall.


The kids got a kick out of this monkey.  Sawyer (my animal lover) even got his pic made with him.


They had a combine simulator where the boys were able to cut rice and beans.



Checking out the antique tractors.

Fun at Lou Lou’s

May 002

Lou Lou was nice enough to watch the babies for me for a couple of hours this morning while Blake and I ran an errand.


When I got back to pick them up I was able to witness this!  Yes, that is my 4 year old on a four wheeler and he drove it all over the place!  He looked like he was 10 years old!  It was almost too much for Blake, she wanted him off!



I think the babies had fun too!


I wonder how many pics I will get of this cutie without his hat this summer…my guess is not many!

After that we headed to Jac Jac’s for some pool time and then Sam’s swimming lesson.  He jumped off of the diving board today for the first time without any floaties…exciting stuff!
