So went took advantage of another beautiful day and went to My Big Backyard at the Bontanical Gardens!! We had a blast!! Thanks Rachel for letting us know about this place!! Payton had a great time and loved exploring all the different things to do!! We took a long walk around the gardens and all in all we had a great day!!
We finally had a nice day here in M-town so Richard and I decided to take Payton to the park! She had such a great time and loved watching all the kids play and run around!! I can't believe she is old enough to start going to play at the park!! I'm loving these days of new things and fun times!!
Payton trying to climb the slide!!
She was not a friend of the swing!!
But big girl loves the slide
I love this picture because she looks so small compared to the playground set!! But there is here daddy always there to help her and cheer her on!!
Richard and I were able to go to Las Vegas, NV for Uncle Randy's and Sherrie's Wedding!! My mom kept doodle bug and Richard and I went to join the festivities in Vegas!! We had a great time walking the strip and just seeing ALL there is to see in Vegas. We walked around the Freemont Experience on Thursday night! Walked the strip Friday morning! Went to the weeding Friday early evening and the finished walking the strip on Friday night!! We woke up Saturday morning and went an toured the Hoover Dam!! We had a fantastic time and saw some awesome things! But I was sure glad to get home to my doodle bug!!!

Richard and I have been married for over 4 years now!! We welcomed our 1st daughter Payton into our lives in Jan. of 2009. She is such a joy and a handful all in one. She definitely keeps us on our toes!! March of 2011 we welcomed our 2nd daughter Macey Jo. She has definitely been a wonderful blessing in our family. Her big sister loves her so very much!! I am a NICU nurse here in Memphis and I must say that I love my job. So welcome to my wonderful crazy life as a mother,nurse and wife!!!
Richard and I have been together 9 years and married for 4 years. He truly is my best friend and the love of my life!! I am so thankful for all the times we have together and can't wait to see what our future holds for us! He is an awesome father to our 2 beautiful little girls and a wonderful husband to me! I love him with all my heart and I am so blessed he is mine!
Payton is my darling, loving, crazy, and energetic 1st born. She is the true definition of a 3 year old. Energy, temper tantrums, crying, laughing, smiling, and did I say energy!! All of these words sum up my beautiful daughter!! She has brought an immense amount of love and joy into our lives. Payton made Richard and I parents and we will be ever so grateful that she came into our lives! She has made everyday such a joy and we can't wait to see what she has in store for our family!! it's probably going to be a crazy ride with her!! We love you doodle bug, with all of our hearts!
Macey Jo is our calm and collective, watch the world go by 1 year old!! She is starting to look so much like her big sister. She is definitely our bashful and very shy little girl! She brings calmness in this crazy life! She would rather be held all day and night. She loves to snuggle with you and loves to be talked/sung to. Macey Jo has brought a sense of togetherness when she entered our lives!! We love being her mom and dad and Payton loves being her big sister! We love you Macey Jo to the moon and back!
