Memorial Day

My husband and his father participated in an 8 mile run, in which funds provided would be matched and donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. They ran down our busiest stretch of road carrying the American flag in honor of those who gave all. I am so proud of my guy. Watch the video HERE.

Em in boots

Goodbye beloved rain boots, I'm sad to see you go! Sad because it means they have become just a memory..every picture will take me back to my daughters toddler years. I'll be able to remember how she would refuse to leave the house without them on, that when I hid them because they didn't go with an outfit she would still stand her ground until I caved. I'll remember trying to dig around in her closet to throw stuff together that somewhat matched for when we would go out in public...and secretly hoping it would be a rainy/over cast kind of day so I wouldn't have to explain! That..she even wore them around the house.....with nothing else on...yup nothing. I have my very own Em in boots..

Anyways, I figured it was too hot to wear them everyday now and started the search for something comparable ...I scored these gems at Old Navy (for those dying to get a pair). They were perfect!! She has all but forgotten about her rainy day wears.....

Meet "cwow-boy bootsth"..I'm sure you'll be real familiar soon ;)

Time to purge again

Emerson's first shaved ice at Big T's on Hope Mills lake.

Riding with spidey man

A visit from her bestie Mace moo

So maybe I didn't really think this through....

3 kids with finger paint...a fun crafty project to keep them entertained right?!!

Wrong. I'm so guilty of not really thinking my project through....It was really a disaster of epic proportions.

Dear daddy

I had a blast with you this weekend. I hoped the days were so long that it felt like you were here a while. I love having you home and already can't wait to see you again..I wanted to thank you for taking me to the Dogwood festival and the was the most fun I've ever had. I'll never forget being able to hold your hand, share your popcorn and nachos, going on the rides and helping me win some stuffed animals mom warned us she didn't want us to bring home!
I want to wake up to you every morning and fall asleep with you every night. Come home soon Daddy.
