Am I four yet mommy?!?!

Oh Kinley Beth the time is just passing by so quickly. But not quick enough for you! You are ready to be FOUR and you are ready to be a big sister!  You just about drive me nuts many more days till I am I four yet mommy.......when will the baby get out of your tummy!  If you have one question you have a million!  You are taking gymnastics this summer and LOVING every minute of it!  You are learned so much, it's awesome to watch ya!  You can do a handstand, a cartwheel, a handstand forward roll and split leaps!  You will try ANYTHING your sister tell you to.....which is good and bad sometimes! I love that you are fearless and willing to try new things but I wish you had some kind of radar to say....hmmm maybe I shouldn't do that, or .....that may get me hurt!  You have had lots of tears this summer because....Sissy told me to!  

Uhhhh..... you look so grown up here!

My sweet girls!

You love being out on the boat or swimming in the pool!

But apparently you got too much sun and got sun poisoning last weekend! You had this red rash all over your body. It looked way worse than it actually was.  And the only way to help it heal is to stay out of the sun.  YEAH that's super easy to do during the dead of summer in Arkansas!
 You are so fearless, so not like your sister at this age!  You love jumping off the diving board and begged me to let you jump off the high dive at HSU......but I was just to scared to let ya and that just devastated you!  You started swim lessons last week and you have progressed so much!  You are now swimming and jumping off the diving board with no life jacket at all!

Super Close to 7!

In less than 2 month you will be SEVEN....YIKES!  And a  month you will be a 
first grader....DOUBLE YIKES! This summer has just flown by! You have been super-duper busy with your gymnastic team workouts, swim lessons, camping, and doing all kinds of fun stuff with Nana!  

Love this sweet smile!

 And your back pack for 1st grade came!!! You did a great job picking it out!!!!
 My little whip cream faced monster!
 You got a poster board and decided to make your own rules for OUR house! It was so cute and hilarious at the same tiem!  My favorite rule is #9: Mommy and Daddy NO kissing in front  of us!  You and Kinley both go nuts when you see me and daddy kiss, it just cracks us up!
 You are my little painter!  I love to see what you come up with....especially the girls with their flipped out bob hair styles!
You wrote daddy the sweetest Father's day card!  My favorite line is....... You are taltid....aka talented.  I am  not sure where you came up with the but it's just PRECIOUS!  And I love that you still spell WITH like WETH!
 We got your kindergartner graduation pictures in and they are just too precious!  I know in a blink of an eye you will be graduation high school and gone off to college and it hurts my heart so bad to even think about that!  I wish I could keep you little and at home with me FOREVER!
 Nana gave you an old pair of her boots and dear lord you are in love with them! You wear them ALL the time and beg to wear them to school and church!  I caught you vacuuming in them last week and it just cracked me up!
 We spent the 4th of July camping and you had a blast bossing, playing with sister and Cooper!
 LOVE this picture of these three!  Not a care in the world, just loving life and all that God has made for them!

 And no boat ride is complete without a big ole bag of gummy worms!
 My little diva driving the boat!

You learned your back handspring last year and then for some reason stopped doing them.  But you finally got them back last week!  

You are so brave this year!  You love to swim and jump off the high dive at HSU!

Last Gulf Shores Post

I can't believe it's been 4 weeks ago that we were on the beach!  We had such a great, relaxing time and created so many wonderful memories. 

 Tuesday was daddy's birthday so we started the day off with breakfast at the Hang Out!

 We played at the beach all day long and took a stroll that night!  We found some super awesome sand castles and couldn't resist taking some pictures with them.

 After our walk we surprised daddy with a cookie cake!

 love the surprised looked on his face!

 Wednesday we shopped all day and then hit LuLus's for some food and fun!
 trying to teach the girls how to play volleyball!

 My loves! Can't believe the next time we go back it we will have a baby with us!!!

 The girls begged to do the water bubbles so we let them! I have to say it was super neat!

 On our way out.........MC found us new boat!

 Thursday afternoon was Dolphin Cruise time!
My two cool kids!

After the cruise we went to Tacky Jacks....or Taxi Jacks as Kinley called it,lol!

 We found our names from last year and it just about brought me to tears!
 Seeing MC's writing was precious! She was so little and has learned so much in one years time; it was just overwhelming to me!
 She said her writing from last year was terrible and scribbled so she was excited to write nice and neatly this year!
 And Kinley bugs got to write her own name too!  LOVE how hard she is concentrating!
 And the girls found the perfect spot for our new name tags!  PRECIOUS! Can't wait to go back and see if it's still there at our next visit!
I love this picture! My lazy beach baby!  This picture pretty much sums up our and chill!  Till next year Gulf Shores!!!!!
