Happy Father's Day to the BEST DADDY we know! We love you and are so very grateful for all you do for us....EVERYDAY! Love~Us
If you are wondering why we gave Blake his gift early...well, we got him some new clothes for our trip next week. I wanted to make sure that they fit so we were not waiting until the last minute. I...I mean Chloe, will get him a treat for Sunday as well :)

Last post, I promise....

Sunday was busy as well. We went to church @ Grace, which was amazing!!! So glad we made it to the service. Afterwards, we went to Brunch with Steven and Brittnye! Later in the day, we headed to the pool. Kevin, Ashley, and Jack came over for a little swim time. When they walked up, Ashley and I realized that Jack and Chloe had on matching swim suits. This is not the best picture...but they are!! So cute. He had little sear sucker (not sure if that is spelled right) swim trunks with his monogram on them! I just adore these Kelly's Kids suits!! They played so good. Actually, Chloe had been a little scared of the water so far. I was glad to see her jumping in and playing without being scared. They would jump in and walk (by themselves) to the stairs...over and over and over again! It was a perfect day!
The breakfast of champions....right before church!
Matching swim cute!!

Saturday FUN FUN FUN

Saturday, we did a little shopping for our upcoming trip to Jamaica...had a nap....went for a quick dip in the pool...and then headed to Kevin and Ashley's for a BBQ! Another fun play date for Chloe and Jack. We had a great time. Ate hot dogs, the most amazing guacamole dip EVER (thanks Haven), and grilled corn on the cob (again, thanks Haven)!! The kids had a fun time playing outside and eating Popsicles. They had kind of a late was a 11pm bed time! YIKES...but, thankfully, Chloe woke up in a good mood on Sunday! Thanks to Kevin and Ashley for having us over...always a fun time :)
Does Chloe not look like the biggest girl old. Makes me kind of sad :(
This picture was taken late night!!

Jack and Diane....Well, I mean Chloe :)

Let it roll

Changes comin round real soon
Make us women and men"

We had another power packed weekend. We just don't feel like we are living if we are not constantly doing something. Chloe spent the whole weekend with her friend Jack! With that comes good times with Ashley and Kevin :) Friday night, Kiwanis put on the Rodeo. Well, as Chloe likes to say "RADIO." Blake had to work it, so we headed down to the fair grounds with Brittnye! Chloe and Jack played on the inflatables...well, Chloe watched Jack play. She was not interested in getting on them. I am so glad I spend $5 for her to be an observer :) They ate hot dogs, and Chloe had fun feeding all the cows. I think that was her favorite part. Here are a few pics.

We had a great time at the "RADIO!!"

“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”
~Dr. Seuss

Wow, what a power packed weekend we had (yet again). Friday after Blake got off work, we headed to Brittnye and Steven's new house. They have just finished moving is beautiful! I know that they are so happy to be settled! Chloe came with us for the fun. She is in love with Brittnye's little Yorkie, Millie. She always tells us that she wants a small dog and Millie is the reason!! Well, Chloe was just ready to party Friday night, let me tell you! She did not go to sleep until 10:30pm that night....we were still visiting with Brittnye and Steven. Well, she was sprawled out on the couch and Millie decided to go and pay her a visit. So adorable!

Saturday was another busy one. I had to go out to to Jimmy and Piper Bell's house to help set up for Flying High. Chloe and Daddy ran errands and stopped by Jenkins and Wynne! She fell asleep in the car, so Blake drove her around for an hour so that she would get some rest! My Dad came and picked her up at Noon so that they could spend the day together. They went to the Zoo again and grilled out hot dogs! Blake and I had to be at Flying High by 4:45pm so we got ready to go! Flying High this year was amazing. Like I said, it was at Jimmy and Piper Bell's house in Sango. Their house is gorgeous. It has a Tuscan look to it so it was perfect for the Spanish themed event! The food was great, the auction was fun, and the dancing...well, I am still sore today! :) Great job to Mary Luther and Liana Wallace...they put on a good show!

Sunday, Blake headed out to the Fair Grounds to help set up for the Kiwanis Rodeo. Chloe and I went to Church and then to eat at Red Lobster with Brittnye and her Sister, Lauren. After that, Chloe, Blake, and I took a much needed nap! Later in the evening, we headed to Don and Sandy's to hang out a bit for a little more R&R!

Sunbathing Beauty

Yesterday Chloe and I got to go to Birdie's pool for about an hour after work! For some reason she is not so keen on the water thing yet...not really sure about that. So she decided to be like Mommy and lay out! Here she is basking in the sun!
In the picture below I was attempting to get her to do her supermodel did not quite work out!
I'm telling heart is so complete being this little girl's Mommy! And that is exactly what she is....a Little Girl...I don't think I can call her a Baby anymore. Makes me sad and happy all at the same time!

Swing Sets and Duckies!

Last Friday, I decided to brave it and take Chloe and Riley to Dunbar Cave. I have to say, it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Riley did very well. If you don't know our dog, she is....well, not good outdoors. She gets hot and tired very easily. Bless her heart, she was a trooper. Chloe, of course, loved it! She took a liking to a baby duck. She wanted to give her whole loaf of bread to "Baby Duck!" It was very sweet. I attempted to get a few photos...especially of Chloe and her "Sister"...but I did not succeed! Here are my few attempts!
Feeding the ducks!

She was very excited!

Hugging her Sister :)

My Dad has wanted to buy Chloe a swing set for about a year now. Well, this past weekend, my Dad's wish came true. Blake and my Dad spent 22 hours constructing this amazing swing set. It is massive! We had the final reveal at 8pm on Saturday night. Chloe was so excited. She ran right up to it and immediately started to climb the monkey bars...I could not believe it. She was not scared at all. After that, she went down the slide and the went right up the rock problems at all! I can tell this swing set is going to be the end of me. It makes me so nervous...but, a kid will be a kid. It is all she talks about! Thanks PAPA! We love our swing set. I need to get a picture of the actual set, but here is what it looks like: it is from Sams!

Of course, those aren't all my kids...but you get the picture!

This was Monday--she was so excited to get home from school so she could play!
Finally, Chloe has not been feeling to well lately....what does that mean? She does not sleep well! What do I do when she wakes up in the middle of the night? I bring her to our bed...naturally!! Keep in mind that we have a FULL! It is pure insanity trying to sleep in that small bed with 3 people! This is how I found Chloe on Monday morning after I got out of the shower. I don't' think Blake had a clue. **Notice Blake's farmer tan from being outside building the swing set! HOT! :)**
