Member's Night at the Zoo

We became zoo members right before Macey was born. We have used it so much over the past year. Payton loves to go and always ask to go rain or shine.

They have a members night every so often. The rides are free and they have a DJ so all the kids can dance and run free. This last time Payton and Aylin had an absolute blast and of course we ran into Payton's boyfriend Landon, whom she always has a fun time with.

Can you believe that Payton actually rode on some rides by herself!! It's unbelievable how big and brave she is getting!! It seems like just yesterday she was scared of her shadow!!

Macey Jo touched a snake... Ewwww!! I'm so not a snake person but that kid will touch anything!! She is not scared of anything! She wanted to grab all the birds that flew on our stick.

We had a great time at the zoo and can't wait to go back!!

Happy 16 months Macey Jo

On the July 3rd my sweet Macey Jo turned 16 months. I can not believe time has flown that fast! Macey is my loud, sassy, with a major attitude little girl!

Sometimes I wonder if because she is my 2nd little girl that she is so sassy! I think she has learned a lot from her big sister Payton. She will scream and hit when she doesn't get her way and then she will run to you and give you a big hug and kiss.

Macey will definitely be the one keeping us on our toes! We love you sweet girl to the moon and back!! :)

Paddle boarding

So Richard and I spent the day together last Sunday with NO kids! He had big plans for us to do some paddle boarding at Shelby Farms! I was not excited! I didn't want to get wet and I was nervous because I had never done this before!

He talked me into it and I'm glad he did! We had a lot of fun! It was actually pretty easy once you got the hang of it!

Richard was real quick to stand up but I needed a little extra time getting my feel for the board! Once we were both up we paddled around the lake for about 30 minutes.

Thanks babe for making me go! I really enjoyed myself!! Love you!

Happy birthday Hilton

On June 20th my nephew was born by C-section! He weighed a whopping 8 pounds and 8 ounces at 36.6 weeks!! He might just be a line backer!

Hilton had trouble breathing right after birth so they took him to the NICU. There is when they diagnosed him with a spontaneous pneumo and had to put him on the vent and give him a chest tube.

He started doing better after 3 or so days and he really started to wake up. He ate with a bottle and cried like a big baby when you put him down!

To make a long story short he ended up having to stay 9 days in the NICU, but he is doing so good at home with mom, dad, and big sister Aylin!!


Happy 4th of July

We had a great 4th with family and friends! We went to the Germantown Fireworks and saw Rachel, Landon, and Brooklyn. Payton and Landon had lots of fun together that night!!

Macey Jo was sick so she stayed home with Ki Ki. We sure did miss her!!

Hope everyone had a great 4th!
