A-Fishing We Will Go!

We have been spending a lot of time in the great Alabama outdoors! Jon has been promising Lawson when it gets warm he'll take him fishing...This weekend it was rainy so Monday was the day!!! If you'll recall their last fishing trip, it was FREEZING cold. I was ready for them to get to really enjoy fishing.

Lawson LOVED the worms!!

Of course...what was Jordan doing??? BUB-Os!!!
(not her best pic!)

My family

Jordan was NOT glad to be going when we were all done!!!

Family Time!

Saturday evening we all went to walk on the trail off Old Madison Pike across from Little MA. We have gone there several times before, but this time was especially enjoyable! There was a lot of 'nature' for the kids to see, and the weather was nice! We passed cows and horses. We looked for bugs. Along the trail there's a river/ditch/whatever that flows, and because of the storms the current was swift. We pulled off the trail at a point where there was a little bit of white water to let the kids throw rocks and just look!

We started picking up rocks and under one we found a worm!! Cool!

Like father, like son!

This is Lawson's "Rock-Skipping 101" class... :)

Nice form! :)

She's getting bigger and bigger! Notice the Dora "Bub-O's" that now go with us EVERYWHERE!

I just love this picture. We were almost back to the van, nearing the end of the trail, and Jordan reached up and wanted to hold Jon's hand! This picture melts my heart! :)

A Lot of Recent Pictures!

So...I haven't posted in a while!! As a matter of fact, I haven't done much on the internet lately... I've briefly browsed through blogs, and I've checked my email, but haven't done much else. I am going crazy trying to plan our trip to Michigan. I am leaving either next Tuesday or Wednesday and won't be back until the NEXT Monday (like, almost TWO weeks!) Whoah!!!

Also, Jon's mom was here again this past week trying to help me finish up a project. She's been awesome--sewing like CRAZY!!! :)

Anyways...I just talked to my dad today and he just got the internet!!! SO...I'm going to post several of our most recent pics for him...probably will be lengthy but not too wordy! :)

Lately Lawson's been very interested in what he wants to be when he grows up. He's been talking about "learning how to be a baseball player". Today, his shirt had a surfer on it and he asked me what a surfer was. I looked up a video on YouTube and showed him, then he asked me if he could be a surfer when he grew up. Here's a pic of him after we had been playing baseball in the front yard.

We went for a walk one night--the day had been pretty mild but it got very cool that night! We decided sitting still in the stroller could become pretty cold, so here's one of J in her winter gear!

I've never posted our house--we've lived here over a year!!! Here are some recent springtime shots. Notice the GAZILLION trees!

Our backyard

Who doesn't have a friendly crocodile in the backyard?

I laid down on my back and took this picture!

Today we spent some time outside blowing BUB-O's (according to Jordan!). Here are some pics I snapped...I am especially proud of the one w/ the bubble over J's face! I think it's pretty cool! Also...today is the first day she wore her new sandals...and of course she spilled almost a whole bubble bottle right in them!!! Sorry Nana! :)

Spring Wishes

Seems my prediction didn't come soon enough for some of you since during the cold of this recent week I've received a few "What happened to Spring?" remarks! The other day the kids and I were coloring and cutting and I decided to look on the web for a project. I found this and decided to make myself a beautiful spring bouquet, courtesy of my kids' handprints! Here's the link in case you need some spring cheer as your centerpiece too!
FYI Lawson's hands are green, orange and yellow. Jordan's are pink and purple.
