Dear Sweet Friends!

Last weekend was the 9th annual Girl's Weekend for my college friends. We all made it this year which made the weekend really fun! It was a treat to have Kelly back in the states! We had so much fun catching up, hanging out...and eating of course. Here we are with a rather large supply of Blue Bell (thanks, Dad) for dessert!
...after our dinner out...
We had 3 babies join us this year. Here is Jane with her Birthday buddy, Sawyer.
Sawyer, Halle, and Jane

Ava had her own little adventure with Mum, Sissy, and William...hopefully we will get some pictures of their fun times soon!

Mountain Home

Last weekend, we took a weekend trip to Mountain Home and stayed at a fun place on Rim Shoals. The girls did fun crafts and Mommy learned a few basics about sewing while the men fished! We had a great time!

Natural Falls

After naps on Saturday - we headed to Natural Falls State Park. We had a great time and were worn out by the end of our outing...there were (too) many steps to climb and bridges to cross.
...Janie girl just chilled the whole time....
....Scott and Ava walked the bridge a million times...
Ava played on the big playground while Jane and I practiced her mad sitting skills...I took this right before her nose dive into the grass...ha!

Ava's 2nd Fishing Derby

Ava and Scott woke up bright and early for a Fishing Derby date. They left by 7:30 and had a big time catching fish....They made it home by 9:30 to find Mommy and Jane still their pj's and Mommy on her 2nd cup of coffee....I think Jane and Mommy got the better deal of the morning!!! Ava LOVES worms...definitely her daddy's daughter! waiting...waiting...waiting
...and finally a fish!
I love my girly girl who must accessorize to go fishing with sunglasses and all. She was so proud of that fish and wanted to hold its stinky sliminess...eeek! They had a super fun time! A sweet memory for sure!
