Back to Reality

Well, our first family vacation is over and I am sad :(. We had so much fun and it was much needed for us. OUr trip started Sat. July 10 at 3 am. We drove to Fayetteville, Ark for the first day and spent the night. Braxton did amazing and was such a trooper!!! Kevin wore this hat the whole time.

On Sunday, we woke up and spent the day in Fayetteville. We toured the campus of the University of Arkansas. I got to see where Chi Omega got started!!!!

Here are some pics that I took.... Chi O photos

We checked into our cabin on Sunday afternoon and spent the whole week on the water.

Braxton mastered his crawling skills while we were on our trip. I gotta baby proof the house now!!!! We had a blast, swimming, sun bathing, fishing, riding on boats, skiing, tubing, etc. Braxton also made a friend on the trip and loved having someone to play with. We meet up with 4 other families. We have all known each other for years!!!! Braxton also tried his first watermelon and sno cone (sugar free) on this trip and enjoyed both!!!

Here are our vacation photos..... Vacation Photos

We came home Sunday,July 18. We didnt leave as early this time. Braxton did good on the way home but it was a little harder not splitting up the drive. It will be awhile before I make a 13 hr drive with an infant! LOL!

Braxton's Baptisim

Today, Braxton was baptized at church. It was so special. My parents came (MiMi and Pops), Kevin's parents (Grandma, Grandpa Tom, & Grandpa Rick), Kevin's Sister (Aunt Julie), Kevin's Aunt Lacie, and his grandparents, Grammy, Nana, and Granddaddy. We missed several other family members who couldn't make it, my brother and sister-in-law (Aunt Ashes & Uncle Patch) and Kevin's cousin Embree and her family.

Braxton did so good during the whole thing. When we were called up to the front, B smiled at the preacher and listened to his every word. It was so cute!!!! Afterwards, we all went out to eat and it was great to be with family.

It's hard to believe that Braxton will be 5 months old this week. He is growing so fast and is such a little "ham". I love his personality!!!!!

Life is crazy, but so worth it!!!

Well, life is just flying by for all us as usual. Braxton is growing so fast and amazing me every day. He is delveloping such a personality!!!! He is rolling over like crazy and is trying to scoot around also. Before we know it, he is gonna be crawling. He is also teething, and I can't stand not being able to fix the pain. I wish a tooth would come on out. He had started really sleeping all night in his crib with no waking for a few minutes, and it was great. But, a couple nights ago, he has been waking up and getting VERY fussy. We also experienced our first head cold. That was terrible...he was so conjested and couldn't breath very well.

My first Mother's Day was AWESOME!!!!

Patrick graduated from Law School Friday, May 14. YAY!!!! He will be taking the BAR Exam in July, so cross your fingers that he will pass! We are all so proud of him.

Kevin is working like crazy and is learning alot with his job.
