Memory Monday.

FHE musical chairs. 


Lacey is a sore looser! 


Late movie night with friends! Love the Andersons and having them close again. 


Her outfits lately...


Went to the actual movie theater to see Beauty and the Beast... should have seen baby boss for the kids sake! 



It's been hot so we got ourselves a little pull to keep up cool till the community pool open up!!




Playdough for the times that I'm done melting outside!

Press Forward 5K Fun Run.

We had a fun run for the other ward to raise money for girls camp. Jer and I ran while the kids played at the skate park. There was a fun run for the kids once the adults finished. There was a warped wall which made for hours of entertainment! 





For the Kids run they broke them up into 2 age groups 5 and under and 6 to 12. Logan totally dominated his age group and walked home with the prize! Lacey was happy that she actually got to participate...and might have a little bit of my competitiveness! 




The older group started right after. Leah one first for the girls and Landon didn't shed one tear for not winning for the boys. I say that's a win in itself. They all got free chick-fil-a ice cream cones so everyone was super happy! 




The kids did their own little race after it was all over. 

Jer and I actually took first in our age groups 30-39. I'll take a win in running since I'm not fast at all!! Although, if you look close at my time there might have been some timing issues. 





We then spent the next hour hunting tadpoles and crawdads. IT was a great morning!!

Mother's Day 2017!

It was an awesome Mother's day full of yummy food, massages, nail painting, spa treatments, and and full on pampering. I just love this little bunch that calls me mom. This is one of the hardest most frustrating things I've ever done in life, but it is the most rewarding and joyful job that I could be blessed to have!

The trap!

Jer bought a trap because we had something in our walls. I'm sure we caught what was in the wall, plus some more! 2 Raccoons. 



Birds!


And endless squirrels! The kids are enjoying the hunt as much as Jer is!

Memory Monday!


This one put herself down for a nap! Never happens and I gladly took the quiet time! 

She loves to cook with me and mix! I love having a shadow and hopefully teaching her some cooking skills. 



Rain here in Virginia bring the box turtle.

Lew Thomas.

Jer's Grandpa Thomas passed away. It was a sad relief. He has been going down hill for a little bit now and finally his health failed. We were sad that we all couldn't make it back for the funeral, but glad that Jer got to be there.

Revolutionary War weekend at Mount Vernon!

We bought tickets a while back to visit Mt. Vernon during the revolutionary war reenactment. Sadly it was just the kids and I because Jer was attending his Grandpa's funeral. Tickets were too expensive for all of us to go:( IT was rainy and super wet but it was neat to be there as all the soldiers were walking around and to actually see the battle. 




George and Martha. 


Enjoying the museum.


I don't think I could have picked a better spot to watch the battle. We were right in the middle of it and taking place literally 10 feet away from us!
