First Family Pictures

Katie took some pictures of our little family of 3 a few weeks ago in Joyce McMahan's beautiful backyard! I think they turned out great, thanks to Katie. Here are a few of my favorites...

An Early Father's Day and Birthday in Alabama

Ella Tate and I rode down with my brother, Phillip, to my parent's house last weekend to celebrate an early Father's Day and my sister, Rachel's, birthday. My brother, Stephen, also came so we all had a great time together. Ella Tate of course was spoiled rotten, but what else is supposed to happen at her grandparent's house with her aunt and uncles and cousins around!? She was especially excited to see her Uncle Jeff this time and I was able to get some good pictures of them! He put together what used to be my neice's crib at my parent's house and Ella Tate slept in it for the first time while we were there. She has about grown out of her Pack-n-Play and was happy for a bigger bed to sleep in at Nana and Pop's! Nana got her a Winnie the Pooh walker and she loved playing in it. We missed Hunter, but we had a great time!

Fun in the Sun Party

Some friends from church came over yesterday for a playdate in our backyard. We had a BIG time and the weather was perfect! The kids had a blast playing with each other and in the water and the mom's enjoyed just talking and eating. All the kids were good and worn out and ready for their naps by the time we were finished!

Ready for some fun in the sun...
