Fun at the Beach...

Here are some pictures from a few weeks ago in Destin! We went with Aunt Nanette, Uncle Scott, Bryce, and Elise. The kids have such a great time playing together...they entertain each other wonderfully and Collier loves to watch them all.

Griffin and Anderson with Bryce and Elise!
A group effort to hold Collier...they are all so sweet with her!

Michael and Uncle Scott caught this shark! The kids were so excited! We had fresh shark that night for dinner...pretty chewy if you ask me!

White Chocolate Bread Pudding

One of my favorite desserts ever is from a restaurant in B'ham called Prairie Fire Grill. I don't usually like bread pudding, but this is absolutely to die for!!! I found out they did a special on a news station here and gave out the recipe on their website, and it actually appears to be really easy to make! Click here to get the recipe and even see their chef make it!

My Eldest...

Here's a few pictures of the Grif-man...I just can't believe how he's growing up and seeming more like a "big boy!" His personality is developing more and more and we just love watching him! He's become so friendly...everywhere we go he strikes up a conversation with any stranger who will listen. His favorite thing to say right now is, "That's what I'm talkin' about, baby!" He makes us laugh all the time and his joyful spirit is contagious. The last two pictures are from his swim lessons a few weeks ago. In the last one he's getting the other kids to give him five, telling them "I mean a hot one!"

Memorial Day at the Lake!

I'm sorry I'm a little behind here, but I'm going to try to catch up! The past couple weeks have been very busy...swimming lessons, Griffin going to VBS for the first time (he loved it), and last week we were at the beach. I wanted to post a couple pictures from our really fun weekend visiting Michael's parents at the lake a few weekends ago for Memorial Day!

6 months old!!!

I've got to ask you to humor me a bit on this one, because I realize that these pictures are really similar. I'm so indecisive anyway and I just couldn't decide which ones were my favorites! I can't believe my sweet little pumpkin is already half a year old! I'm just enjoying this great stage right now before she gets mobile!!!

Collier's Baptism

A few weeks ago was a very special day for our family--Collier's baptism! Collier did so well, and believe it or not the boys were so still and quiet during the whole thing! We were in shock! We were so thankful to our sweet family for coming to share in such a special day with us! Here are some pictures...
