Momma's Vacation

We went to Cocoa Beach, Florida and it was wonderful. I met up with Kelly W, Kelly F, Jessica and Christine.

We walked the beach...

We got sand in our toes...

We took lots of pictures. Me taking a picture of Christine taking a picture!

Our favorite drink, A Pain in the A**!

Kelly F throwing back the rum shot that was in the drink.

Dude, it was bad!

Kelly W gave us all a gift when we arrived. She is soo Martha! Aren't they cute??

The gift, a key chain with Welcome to Holland engraved on it with a pearl and our child's birth stone. We cried. It was such a thoughtful and sweet gift. Thank you again Kelly, I love it so much.

We went to Fishlips on Friday night. It was fun!

It was Kelly F's birthday. She had a candle in each meal that day. We were all surprised when the ENTIRE bar sang "Happy Birthday" to her!

The beach....

I had such a great time. It was relaxing and refreshing. We laughed, we cried, we ate, we drank. The four days went by too fast but we are looking forward to future trips.

We are moved!

Where have I been? Unpacking! And painting! We moved into our new house last Friday and we have been working ever since. We love the house but there are lots of little changes that we want to make. I haven't found my camera, so when I do I will post some pictures.

I have a meeting today with a lady from the school district to discuss Will's transition from the early intervention program to the school system. She is just going to fill me in on how it all works and what to expect.

Caroline had her yearly checkup with the doctor and she got her vaccinations for school. It wasn't pretty, but she made it through. Josh came with me to enjoy the experience and I am so glad that he did. I am not sure that I would have been able to do it alone.

I am hoping to get back into the swing of things soon.

Church Picnic

The church that we have been going to since moving into the hotel was holding their annual picnic this weekend. Josh and I took the kids before church on Saturday and Caroline got to ride some rides.

Getting ready to ride the "kiddie" swings.

On the little Ferris wheel.

Feeling the wind in her face on the spaceships.

William is thinking about calling Gene Simmons to see if there is an opening in the band!

She played the duck game and took picking a duck very seriously.

Her prize, some sort of fish.

There were horse rides. She said that she wants to take horse riding lessons.

With dad on the scrambler. You have to click on the picture to get a closer look at her face, priceless!!

Will watching Dad and Sis on the scrambler.

Caroline decided that she wanted to ride the "big" swings. I was very nervous about letting her do it, but she was pumped and said she wasn't scared.

Josh took the stroller and my camera back to the van before church started. During that time Caroline begged me to let her go on the giant slide. I wasn't so sure about it but she really wanted to do it. So I decided to let her. She climbed all of the steps, sat on her burlap sack and pushed off. Because she doesn't weigh a whole lot she got going really fast and by the second bump she got a little airborne and her eyes got the size of saucers! I so wish that I would have had my camera and that Josh could have seen it because it was so funny. When she came over to me afterwards I asked her if she had fun and she said that it was really fun. I asked her if she wanted to do it again and she said no!

Hello my peeps! Wanted to update you on the happenings that is our lives!!

  • We are closing early on the house!! Woot Woot!! We will be closing on the 12th, which is one week earlier than we thought we would. I am so excited to get out of this place and I can't wait to show you guys our new digs!!

  • I have been suffering from some seasonal allergies and let me tell you, it is not fun. I have had a really bad headache all week and I am finally feeling a bit like myself today.

  • William has been battling a cough for about two weeks. I think that I can say he is over it. I think that he was having the same issues as I was with the allergies.

  • Caroline will be starting school on July 16th!!! Yikes!! The school district that we are moving into does year-round school. It is going to be an adjustment from what we are use to but I think that it is going to be good for her. They go for 9 weeks then have a 3 week break. She is excited about starting school but nervous all at the same time.

  • We went and bought her a backpack and lunch box for school this week; Hello Kitty, of course!

  • Anytime we mention school she starts freaking out about having to get shots! It should be interesting! I told Josh that he is going to need to take that day off from work because I am going to need his help at the doctor's office.

  • While taking Buster out to do his business the other day we had a scary experience. I was taking him out the door of the hotel building and I didn't notice two dogs sitting with their owner right outside the door. We walked through and the other dogs started attacking Buster. I tried walking by really fast but the other dogs were on top of Buster biting him. They pulled so hard to get Buster that they pulled their owner off of the bench that she was sitting on and she skinned her knee up. I have no idea what happened or why the other dogs were so aggressive but let me tell you, Buster and I were scared!! Buster did his business a little bit faster that day! And Buster seems to be fine, no injuries.

  • Josh is going to be gone most of next week for business, Lord help me!
