Today, I choose joy.

We all have things in life that make our heart happy. For me, it is watching my kids play and run through water like it is the best thing they have ever done. There is this "spray ground" (splash pad) near our house that we love to visit. It costs $3 to get in and the kids have the best time running through the water and playing. I could spend hours just watching them run and play their little hearts out. What more can I ask for?

Here are some pictures from one of these outings. I adore these pictures! You can just see the joy on their faces and that makes my heart so happy.

*Picture overload ahead*

Savannah's 3rd birthday celebration

Happy Monday! It was a good weekend. We celebrated Josh yesterday and spent a lot of time outside. Saturday we celebrated Savannah Grace's 3rd birthday (which is this Friday) with Josh's side of the family since we will be going out of town this weekend to celebrate. I can not wait for our trip to Nashville Friday!

Sweet summer time

It has been gorgeous here in MS, so we have spent a lot of time outdoors playing lately. It keeps the kids entertained and wears them out for nap time so it is ideal for everyone. :-) Good nap days keep me sane!

I am enjoying summer time with my littlest two, but really miss my biggest sweet girl, Hayley. She is at her Dad's for a couple more weeks and then it is time for a girl's trip with her, Savannah and my mom and sister to Nashville and then back home for some summer fun with all three kiddos. I can't wait.

Here is what's going on with our family as of the end of May/beginning of June 2013:

Hayley: got all A's on her report card and made the Principal's List at school, growing so fast and is such a big helper and great big sister, loves to read like her Momma. She enjoys swimming and Barbies.

Savannah: went pee pee on the potty today for the first time ever!, is out of preschool until August, turns 3 on the 21st. She enjoys playing outside, swimming, coloring and riding her tricycle.

Donovan: has been talking more and eating like a champ, carries his night-night around everywhere, loves to climb and make big messes. He enjoys eating, bath time, playing outside and cuddling.
