A private practice, all geared toward the kids! Very cool that they put this on!
They served breakfast and then it was time to play games!!

He sure likes all the attention from the ladies!!! Justin was embarrassed and the cheerleaders kept talking to him...hilarious!
Meeting TORO!!!!

He came straight to us!!!

 goes by way too quickly.
Looking back on the pictures of my boys...WOW.
I cannot imagine what life was like before these two came into our lives.  We are beyond blessed and I wouldn't trade a second of this noisy, crazy, all-BOY house!

Jake was born in 2006...
look at my sweet boy.
 Those dimples were there as soon as he was born!  Cutie!  he was a wild boy so this seat kept him from running and cracking his head on the tub!
 He has loved Lightning McQueen since he was a baby!
 My sweet boy playing in his room!  Ahhh so long ago :(

And then Justin was born in 2009...
sweet blue-eyed baby boy!
 My gosh, this boy LOVES to smile!

Watching the two of them grow, change and become little men has been SO wonderful.
I might have a LITTLE bit of baby fever right now...just wanting our boys to never grow up, so looking back at pictures of these two as babies has NOT helped that "fever".  LOL!

I love you both more than words...LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK...and again and again!

The day started with some fun at the park!! You can tell by their cheeks that it was HOT but they pushed through & had fun!!
We played "red light, green light" and "mother may I" 
Then it was fun at Gina's! 
They were voting on where we should go for frozen yogurt...very serious decisions going on! 
And they chose-MENCHIES! Very cute froyo place that was refreshing after a sweaty, fun day :-) love getting all these kids together, they all have so much fun just like we did as kids!

Shirtless Summer...

They own plenty of shirts, but never wanna wear them so instead of Endless summer, our boys will remember this one as Shirtless summer 
Shirtless on our nightly, golf cart rides...
And no shirts at the beach the other day! 

One thing is for sure, we try and do something fun & different EVERY day!! Gotta take advantage of summer, as long as we can!

Happy Birthday MeMe!

My mom is the greatest woman I know! She put me first in her life, always! And now it's where she puts our boys. They love their MeMe and that makes me so happy. For many years it was her and I, together! She always finds ways to give of herself...and although sometimes we don't see eye to eye, as most moms and daughters do, I love her so much. I respect her and appreciate all she's done for me to make my life great. She put me through college, walked me down the aisle and gave us a beautiful wedding...and so much more! 
And today, we celebrate her! 
The boys had fun with their MeMe on the cruise and at Disney World this year- a pretty cool Christmas gift for two, little boys huh?! 
I'm SO proud of all that she's done in her life, even with so many obstacles that stood in her way. 

For a gift? If I win the lottery, Brandon and I would build her a house in the Bahamas and buy her a yacht 
but until then...

Old friends...

We are driving home...depressed. Did NOT want to leave this place! So yesterday we had to make sure and have TOO MUCH FUN since we knew today we had to head home (we were suppose to come home yesterday but just couldn't leave!) 
So we did some pontoon riding and floating...and yes, we sang the song..."jumpin' off the back, don't act like you don't want to!"

Then we caught up with an old friend on her ski boat and we fell in love...with their boat! Holy smokes it was awesome! Speakers galore, swimming and skiing FUN! The boys had a BLAST!!!! So did we! And were burnt to a crisp to prove it!
Our second site all set up! We had to move sites since we were suppose to be leaving Saturday! 
Waiting to go on the lake!
Yup! They're eating chex mix in the bunk!!! I made an exception since we were having so much fun :-)
My little daredevil! He was doing flips off the back! 
Daddy attempting to wake board!!! He's so handsome :-)
It was time to swim! Water was SO clear, you could see the bottoms of your feet! And it was 60 feet!!!!! Amazing!
