Every year for my entire life my family, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents have all gotten together at the beach this year my kids had and absolute bash!

They got to know some of their cousins and spending time with Nana and Papa. It was also a nice break from working around the house.  

We went putt putting and walked around some piers looking at some of the fishing boats.  

We also got to show off some of Landen’s golfing skills!

Unfortunately both kids go sick during the week so the week ended with 2 trips to the emergency room.

We also made a trip thru North Carolina to see Shane’s mom and a quick stop through GA

It was a busy 9 days but it was great to see all of our family and friends. But of coarse its nice to be back in our own home!

Shane and I had been thinking about a dog for a long time. And finally after searching and searching we found the perfect dog. She was in a shelter and had been there almost a month when we adopted her. We had to take her to get her to get checked up by the vet and this is when we found out that our newest baby has heart worms. Today we started her treatment! It is going to be a long and hard process. Our poor little girl must stay in a cage for the next 2 weeks and then for the next 4 weeks she can walk around but must remain calm. After that she still had 3 more treatments and can not return to her normal self until next May. This is going to be a very hard process for her and for us. But hopefully she will come through this with and be back to her spunky self soon!

I needed to take a break from blogging for a while. I really felt like I was writing just to write and not really saying anything. So I want to get back to the basics. I originally started this blog to share about our lives and share my kids groaning and changing. So thats were I want to get back to. There have been some major changes around here since I last wrote a blog post. First the kids both celebrated their birthdays. Landen is officially 4 and Lexi is now 16 months. I can’t believe how time has gone by so quickly! Next I started an embroidery business, so you may be seeing the kids in some of the items I sell from time to time. I also may be telling y’all when I add new items to my store. Third we became official residents of the state of Florida and bought a house! We also got a dog! (I will be posting pictures soon) And finally we are going to be homeschooling Landen starting in August. So I will also be updating on this journey as well. We have lots going on and I am hoping that this will renew my commitment to keeping this blog up to date on all the happenings around our home.
