about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Busy, Busy, Busy

We had such a fun and busy weekend!

Of course, it all started with our date. We ran errands, looked at guns, had a nice lunch at Panera and shopped a little. I'm amazed at how fast time flies when you're just out doing nothing without the kids along.

Maggie and Ellie had fun at Nana's and both of them were completely worn out and fell asleep right after we put them in the car! Big Daddy sat in the car with them while I picked up a few things from the grocery store for dinner. We spent the rest of the evening as a family.

On Saturday morning, we gave Maggie a little surprise.
Her B.arbies now have a real place to live!
Maggie was spending so much time playing with her B.arbies in her Princess tent, so she's really happy to play out in the open with her new house. We moved the tent to the bonus room and it will get a lot of use up there.

I spent a lot of time sitting by the pool with my two girls on Saturday. Ellie enjoyed watching Maggie and playing with her boats, but didn't like being in the pool all that much. She loves to sit beside of the pool and have Maggie splash her!

On Saturday evening, we met my mom, dad, sister and Cousin Callie at a friends house and had dinner and explored their mini farm.
Maggie ran and ran and ran all around the grounds. She chased Bailey the dog and threw sticks in the pond so that he would fetch them.
Maggie already has plans to return to pick grapes, chase the dogs, feed the cows and swim in the pond...or so she thinks.

On Sunday, we went to Church, had a nap and then said goodbye to Maggie. She had another sleepover with Cousin Callie. I think she would sleep at my sister's house every single weekend if we'd let her.
We didn't do very much on Monday. Big Daddy mowed the yard, I planted a few more flowers, it rained and we had dinner at my parents' house.

Maggie, Ellie and their Mommy plan to enjoy this quiet week with nothing much planned. Maggie and Ellie are having their official 4 and 1 year old pictures taken on Thursday and then we have Preschool Summer Day Camp next week.

Dates away are SO FABULOUS! Gooner LOVES being in her baby pool. I think the weather is so hot and humid that she doesn't even care!
