We've been on vacation this weekend. It's the first time we've been somewhere besides our parents' houses since Caleb was born. He requires a LOT of stuff and planning, but it was so worth it - we had a WONDERUFL time! We really only traveled about 30 minutes from Panama City to Mexico Beach. Wes's company was having a golf tournament, but I really feel like I've been somewhere. We stayed in this cute little Victorian beach house decorated with antiques, and the weather was perfect.

I didn't mind coming back from vacation because my good friend, Ashley (Bourland) Collins, and her family are staying at a house in Destin this week, and I knew I was going to get to see her, Abby and meet Hudson. It was SO good to catch up with her! Plus, Caleb has been practicing his swimming in the bathtub for months now, and he got to show his skills for the first time today. HE LOVED IT! The pool was heated and felt like bathwater. He SMILED so big and laughed. Bourland - Thanks so much for having us!! Here we are with our boys below. Don't they look like they will get along great??

Sweet Surprise

Ashley, our boys and I have been in Hartselle because we hosted a SURPRISE baby shower for Katie to celebrate baby Caroline (coming in June). It was a REALLY fun trip and Katie was VERY surprised! Katie wrote about the shower on her blog. Click HERE to read it. Below is her reaction on video and some pictures from our trip.

Easter Weekend

HE HAS RISEN! "Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!" 2 Corinthians 9:15

We had a great weekend in Dothan celebrating Easter weekend with family. Caleb is going to be so bored tomorrow when it is just me to entertain him again. He LOVED all the attention! It was a BEAUTIFUL weekend and we stayed outside in Nana and Poppy's incredible yard yesterday with Jenny, Hannah Brooke and Carson. Caleb met Pedro (the donkey) for the first time. Nana and Poppy treated us to dinner at the Old Mill last night with The Bagwell and Tice families.

We went to church this morning - LOTS of family was there and then over to lunch at Wes's Granny's. We got to celebrate Easter and were there for Hannah Brooke's birthday! She's 9!! Happy Birthday H.B.!!

Wes's Granny gave a speech about how Jesus lives and she knows He lives because he lives in her. I am SO THANKFUL that Jesus died to take away all of our sins and that He lives in me!! His love is AMAZING!! HAPPY EASTER!!

Skate Party!

We went to Hartselle this weekend to celebrate Grace's 6th birthday with her. She had her party at the skate castle (Ashley and I had our b'day party there one year, too) and I'm pretty sure a good time was had by all! Grace was so excited! Caleb loved the lights and the music and Grandaddy (who couldn't skate b/c he has a bum knee) and Katie (who couldn't skate b/c she is pregnant) held him so Wes and I could both skate. Here are some pictures.
