Summer isn't summer unless you go to the beach! We are beaching it this week where it feels like home away from home for me!

summer is here!

Happy Friday!  This week has felt like summer has finally come.  It is hot, we've been spending every minute possible at the pool, baseball is in full swing, we get to celebrate David and how awesome he is to the boys, and we are about to kick off Whitney's wedding week in Rosemary Beach.  We can't wait! Life is Good!

Argh...Ethan is 4

This past weekend we celebrated Ethan's 4th birthday with a Pirate Party.  Four seems so big!  David and I couldn't be more in love with the little boy Ethan has become.  From his sense of humor to the  love he has for others amazes us every day.  We celebrated the party on Saturday with friends and family.  Sunday we took him to see the Lion King.  It was a special birthday!

cheese squares were "pirates gold"
fruit dip was "Captain Hook's Fruit Dip"
