Gotta Stay Hydrated

Even while going down the slide Miller couldn't stand to let go of his beloved Capri-Sun.

Baby Pool Buddies

Miller and Elizabeth had a grand old time splashing around in the baby pool.

Give Me 5

Miller was so proud of himself for diving into the baby pool all by himself that each time he jumped out he would run over to me and "give me five."

Downhill Racers

Sarah and her girls have a fun routine of dancing under the hose to the theme song from "Flashdance." Lorelai couldn't wait to get in on that fun.

Not surprisingly, Lorelai nominated herself to be in charge of filling up the baby pool.

Now it was time for the wet and wild fun to begin!

Whale Watering Hole

In order to cool off in sunny Hartwell, GA, we set up our own mini-waterpark. One of the attractions was a baby pool that had a slide shaped like a whale. Sarah attached a hose to the whale and it became a sprinkler that Lorelai and Elizabeth seemed to think was a drinking fountain.

Our Day Trip to Hartwell

My cousin, Sarah, and I practically grew up together. Her mom ~ my Aunt Evelyn ~ and my mom were basically raised as sisters along with my Aunt Carol. I am sad to report that Sarah and I live about 45 minutes from each other and our kids haven't even seen each other in 3 years. To add insult to serious injury, she and her family are moving to Columbia in the middle of July. Good grief! In an attempt to make up for lost time my mom, the kids, and I drove down to Hartwell to spend the day with Sarah, her parents, and her two girls. My next several posts will show you what a wonderfully fabulous time was had by all!

Introducing Miss Grace. She was such a huge help with wrangling all of the younger kiddos, not to mention that she always ready with a smile for Aunt Amy while I snapped pictures all day.

Adorable Elizabeth and her honey bun hairdo. She and Lorelai are one year apart, almost to the day, and were instantly inseparable.

Do cousins get any cuter than this?!

My Aunt Evelyn and my cousin, Sarah.

This wild man needs no introduction, but I just couldn't resist including these pictures from our trip and they didn't really fit in with any of the other themes of my posts, so I just threw them in here.

Best Birthday Ever

So, turning 35 turned out to be pretty fantastic this year. I got a laptop from my amazing husband, a NOOK (possibly the best invention ever!) from my parents, and a fabulously cool personalized Tervis Tumbler that I desperately wanted from my in-laws. I pretty much figured it didn't get any better than that. Then I went in to get Miller dressed this morning and told him that it was my birthday, figuring he wouldn't have any idea what it meant. He started singing, "To you, Mommy," to the tune of "Happy Birthday." How sweet is that?! By then I was pretty sure my day was set. I mean, how could you top something like that, right? Well, Lorelai put the icing on the cake, so to speak. My mom treated the kids and me to lunch at Johnny Rockets this afternoon (pictures of that to come later) and after the wait staff sang to me Lorelai came over to me, kissed and hugged me, and said, "I love you~You're the best Mommy ever. Happy Birthday." Looks like 35 is gonna be a pretty great year.
