Off the California!

Well, my bags are packed, kitchen cleaned, food cooked, and laundry done...Off for a great adventure to CALIFORNIA!! Thayden and I are leaving this afternoon and will be in Reno, NV tonight. My family started doing a "family reunion" every year, this is our second one and SOOOO much different than the first. Last year my sister had just had a baby and I was due in 3 weeks. Needless to say this will be so much fun having all these kids. I'm really excited for Thayden to spend time with his Pop-pops, since we don't get to see hime much. I've always been really close to my dad and I really want my kids to be also. It'll be fun watching them go chase bugs and play in the fields. These next 2 weeks mean so much to me. As much as I truly love my whole family (in-laws too!) there is nothing like the bond I have with my dad. It really makes me sad that we aren't closer and able to be around my family more, but I know we are were we are supposed to be and doing what is needed.
This will be so much fun and I can't wait to share stories and pictures!

Berry Picking!

Last week we went strawberry picking! It was really nice to get out and see all the green and smell the fresh air. We got there relatively early, but by the end it was hot! I think Thayden ate more dirt than berries, but it was really fun watching him try to get them off the bushes.

The farm had some other great produce and we're going back this next week to get some corn!! My favorite! I'm so excited for the day when I can have my own garden and grow tons of great food.

Pictures in the Park

Check out my facebook page to look at more pictures. Here's a taste!!

We went to the Botanical Gardens here in Greensboro, NC. It was the perfect morning, overcast and not too hot. By the end we were all melting, but it was a lot of fun. Sireena did such a great job getting great pictures of Thayden. I bet the other park people thought we were crazy with all the silly noises we had to make to get Thayden to laugh! It was a great little outing for the family and with Sireena's family!

I can't wait to do Thayden's 1 year and family pictures in about 6 weeks! Ahhh!! Crazy! Enjoy the pictures.

His first hair cut!

So, I know Thayden doesn't look like he has a lot of hair, but in the back its another story!! Yesterday he wore a collared shirt and his hair was past the collar! As its been getting longer its been getting curly! He totally has Pop-pop's hair!! Its soooo funny!! Not much on top and lots around the edges!

Anyways, this morning we gave Thayden his first hair cut. It was a little crazier than when I do Shane's but it was still fun.
