A girly kind of weekend:)

Tinley and I headed off for some "girl time" as she would say while Dad and Parker stayed home for their "boy time." We always miss our guys but enjoyed some fun time with friends.     There was talking. giggling. playing. shopping. dancing. You know that kind of good stuff!

Tinley started off her weekend with face paint and a very kind Booya who let her express her artistic creativity...they had a new "after face paint" glow for several hours to come.

Using Booyas curlers...and getting the princess treatment.

On Saturday we met up to watch a cute little soccer player (how did I miss that pic??) and then some play time at the park.  Going for a stroll..

A baby holding a baby holding a baby (well that's what I see anyways)

Love this face she is making...Enjoying her bubbles and watching the big girls!

Who needs text messaging? We'll just talk to each other across this bench.

Hard to get everyone to look but enjoying this beautiful fall day.

Can't beat a great place with great ladies.

Lots of Blue Ribbon pictures in our past. First time with both our girls!

 I'd say they fit right in:)

Some fun shopping with good sales...cute clothes...but best of all fabulous friends.

Loved all our time with our little girls and the cherry on top was getting some quality talking time with these special friends.  Always sad to part ways, but have an extra happy in my heart after being together. So blessed.

Friday-Sunday= Fundays

Enjoyed a full fun weekend!

Grandaddy and Tinley ready for action!

Looking for a big pumpkin for Booya and Grandaddy

 A variety of pumpkin styles chosen...

 All our little pumpkins:)

Ganny and Grandaddy did a great job with "Ride for a Cure"

Tinley and Parker aren't old enough for motorcycles yet (or maybe ever if their mama gets a say;)

 But they enjoyed trying their biker poses out.

Finished out the weekend with a fun bridal shower and some of my favorite teachers. We love to celebrate!

Erin, does your garden grow?

With beach and friends and prayers so sweet...
God gave me rest for my weary feet (and soul- but that doesn't rhyme).

It was a great blessing to get away with a group of women at my church this past weekend...themed "Garden Getaway."
As God always knows what we need, this centered around the seasons of our life and how to see the beauty and purpose in all of them.

And bonus thankfulness for...

Sleepover time with friends

 Good views all around

Lots of fun with this group...and an attempt at a large group selfie?

It was a great blessing and opportunity to be thankful and reflect on my season of life:)

Speaking of great opportunities, I want to let everyone know about a chance to support the Ronald McDonald house and our good friends. You may remember that several months ago our little buddy Christopher was so sick that it required an extended stay in the hospital. His family was so grateful for how the Ronald McDonald house helped them through this time. This is one of those things that you don't know how much you need until you are already in a difficult situation. They decided they wanted to give back in a big way. They are having a Reverse Raffle along with a Backyard Carnival/dinner. If you live in their area you can get a ticket and stop by for some fun or... if you are long distance you can still purchase a ticket for a chance to win prizes and most importantly to support this cause.

For this child I (we) have prayed...

There are many things to say about our journey so far with this baby boy....but mostly we just want to celebrate our many blessings including the one additional little (but so very big) blessing that we can celebrate right now! We are so thankful to God for him, for each other and for our best ever family and friends. I've always believed it takes a village to take care of our children and we certainly do love our village:)

Making his blog baby boy Bullis!

Fresh Air Is Good for Your Soul

We enjoyed good company and lots of nice Fall fresh air this weekend. Hopefully we are recharged for another busy week.

We made our way out to Freedom Park for the Cornhole tournament.

The kids took full advantage of all their fun activities and lots of cuddly mascots.

 Our super hula-hooper!

Today we made our way out to the farm to pick apples. We've been seeing lots of apple picking going on from friends and decided it was our turn to join...just before the apple picking turns to pumpkin picking.

Had to explore the corn field first.

Then the serious apple seeking began. Look high..look low.


We left with mission accomplished and heavy bags. If you are hungry for apples, come see us!

Serious apple cider drinking going on before we left.
