Summer Time

Well, this summer has definitely been busy and has gone by rather quick.  I cannot believe that it will soon be July. 
We have been busy with days at the pool, play dates with friends, movies, Braves games, VBS, and cleaning out.
Eating cotton candy at the Braves game.

VBS at church

We are getting ready to move. We have lived in this house for almost 7 years. I cannot believe it! We are not going far, but we are doing what we feel is best for our children. They will be going to a new school next year, and in order to go there, we have to move. So we will be in our new house July 1st!!! The last part of our summer will be just as busy as the first, but we are excitied about all the new opportunities our family will have in our new house.

Picture this........

Picture this..................your child's baseball team is playing their final game and if they win, they will receive first place for the season.  So, next thing you see, is the bases are loaded, we are losing 1 to 4,  there are two outs, and your child is up to bat!!!  What would you think???  Oh My!! No pressure or anything......This was ME.  So, want to know the rest of the story?????

There we are, bases loaded, two outs, and Braden is at bat.  Next thing I realized he connected with the ball.......I started screaming and realize the ball just flew by the short stop and is heading into the outfield!!! Can you say GRAND SLAM................Yes, my baby just hit a grand slam, making the score 5 to 4 we are winning.  I could not get to him fast enough to give him a big hug!! (and, yes I was crying!!) This was such an awesome game.....but as luck would have it, we ended up losing our 3rd game of the season and we got second place. However, at this point all I could think was My BaBy just hit a GrAnD SLaM!!! I am so proud of him.  He has come such a long way with baseball this year and I hope he continues.  WE LoVe You,  B!!!!

Disney 2011

We had a wonderful seven days in Disney this year.  We again stayed at Bay Lake Towers, which is definitely our favorite.  Braden had a blast because it was Star Wars Weekend at Hollywood Studios!  This is the first year that we went to Hollywood studios and it was surely a hit! Braden braved the Rockin Rollercoaster, but his favorite was The American Idol Experience.  He enjoyed getting to vote....we even stayed late one night so we could see the finale show for that day.  We did our usual Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom too.  Ella's favorite section was closed in  Magic Kingdom while they re-do she was disappointed she did not get to ride the goofy rollercoaster, but next year it will be even better for her!!
