Wild week

It is already COLD in Ohio! We are shocked at the weather in September and are a little worried that it gets colder in the coming months! Yikes! We bundled up everyone on Sunday and went to the park. It was so cold and the shortest park visit in history!


Colin woke up screaming on Monday night and would not sleep poor kid! He is so happy so I knew something was wrong! He just seemed off.... No fever, no other symptoms!

Tuesday at the Dr we discovered he had his 1st ear infection!

Tuesday night no one slept because both kids were up all night! Hoping everyone is feeling better soon!

Wednesday was my 31st birthday that was spent at the Dr with Kaitlin!

We missed the flower delivery on Wednesday but Kory's flowers showed up on Thursday and they are beautiful! Poor Kory had grand plans for my birthday and with no sleep and 2 sick kids he had to keep changing his plans! We got Carabas to go and tiramisu! It was the perfect way to end a crazy day!

We are ready for the weekend and hopefully some more sleep! It has been a wild week!

Tennessee birthday weekend

After the beach we headed to Knoxville for the UT vs Florida game! It was a great weekend and it was so fun to be home with all the excitement of the big game! Rachel surprised me with a cake and we celebrated my early birthday with cookie cake and shopping! It was such a surprise and so so special!
Kory went to the game on Saturday and Didi helped me watch the kids
Rachel and Colin... Don't they look cute in orange!
We had brunch on Sunday before we got on the road! We ate outside and it was a great time of stories from the game!

We can't wait to be back in town soon for another game with a better outcome for the Vols!

6 Month checkup

Colin had his 6 month checkup and he got a wonderful report!

He is 19 pounds 14 ounces and 27 inches long! 80th percentile in both height and weight! Almost the exact same as Kaitlin at her 6 month checkup!
He was so sweet during his appointment and he Loves our doctor who wants Colin to eat more food! We are transitioning from two to three meals along with his normal bottles! He had a hard time after his shots! Poor thing!

He loved looking at himself in the mirror! Big happy boy!

So thankful for a great checkup!

Have You Met Rachel?

My friend Kelly is doing a spotlight this week on singles and I knew I needed to introduce my sister, Rachel, to the world! She is gonna kill me but I figure it is better to ask for forgiveness later!

Rachel is 27 and lives in Knoxville, TN. She is the best sister and aunt ever! Rachel is the most faithful and fun person you will ever meet! She has the best smile and tells the best stories.

Rachel loves Jesus and is so passionate about her faith! She has volunteered with Young Life and is an amazing leader!

She loves Tennessee football and, like a true girl raised in the south, she knows her football. She is so fun to go to games with and is very competitive in her fantasy football league!

Rachel is a counselor in the school system and she is amazing at her job! She has helped so many kids in her job and she loves what she does. Rachel is an awesome friend, loves birthdays, and knows how to pick out the perfect card for anyone!

I know God has big things in store for Rachel! So if you have an amazing friend, brother, or son that needs to meet Rachel, let me know! Leave me a comment or email me at

Fun in the Sun

Another beach day with my cute little frogs!

Beautiful weather not a cloud in the sky! It was a great day at the beach!

We drove to Murrells inlet to eat at Lees inlet kitchen! It was on Southern Living's top 10 seafood resturaunts and it was wonderful! The hush puppies were amazing!

Beach baby

We had amazing weather the rest of the week and it was sunny wIth a breeze! Kaitlin dug a big hole everyday and then decorated it. It kept her busy and she had a blast!


How cute is this little swimmer!

We got a little tent for him to play and nap! It worked great and allowed him to play without getting in the sun!

First time in the ocean

My two beach boys! How cute are baby sunglasses!
We ate outside at Jimmy Buffets and had my favorite volcano nachos! They are huge! We never finish them all but they are so yummy!

It was another great day at the beach!
