2 in Texas

The boys turned 2 in Texas. We didn't have any wild party on their birthday, but were able to spend time together as a family for the first time in months. We had lunch at Chick Fil-A and later the boys rode their new bikes to the playground.

It was the perfect day.(The boys borrowed shoes from other kids at the chick fil-a playground - I couldn't say no, it was their birthday)

Arlo riding his bike with rainboots (my boys have a shoe fetish, it's genetic from their daddy)

Josiah & his bike

Happy Birthday boys. Daddy & I love you more than you could ever understand.

This is what the boys & cousins were doing while we were all singing happy birthday!!! No time to waste!!

Uncle Travis provided us with some music...

Great Uncle Kenny, Great Uncle Boone & Grandaddy Hall

Great Aunt Dixie, Aunt Renee & Great Aunt Jean

You may never believe me except for this photo is small proof that my boys love new clothes as much as their momma does!!! Can't you see the excitement Josiah has for his new clothes!?

And even Arlo was SUPER excited for his Crocs from Aunt Susan. (Both boys insisted on wearing them to bed that night!)

Coles Knob

We spent 3 wonderful months with my parents in Virginia. The boys absolutely loved living there & called it home. We could stay at the house for days & not get bored - there's so much to do - we hardly went to town except grocery shopping or church. Even the drive to town is entertaining to look at tractors & farm animals the whole way there. The only thing that could have made Grandma's house better would be to have Jason there with us.

So, here is our top ten reasons why Grandma & Grandaddy's house is AWESOME!!!

10. Cows & sheep (next door)
9. 60 acres to run around
8. Go-cart & bicycles to ride
7. 2 power wheels to drive around the driveway
6. A room FULL of toys, toys, toys
5. Sandbox
4. Swing set
3. Outdoor Trampoline
2. Visiting with cousins EVERY week!

and #1 reason why we love being there......

1. Hanging out with Grandma & Grandaddy EVERY day!!!!

The boys LOVED to sit at the bar and eat Grandaddy's breakfast with him in the mornings.

Grandma treated us to lunch at the park!
