Sadness :(

I think many people were thinking this!

The title says it all! So depressed this afternoon when the tar balls began to wash up and blemish the beautiful sandestin coastline!! It was depressing to watch! I have so many precious memories of vacations on the beach with my family as a child and want my children to experience the same things I did. God created something so beautiful and awesome, and it is such a shame to watch it ruined.

Splash Park

Sorry, Grayton said he had to go to the bathroom, but I insisted on just one more picture!

The little ones got a little tired of the sand, so we went to Destin Commons to enjoy a little snack, a little shopping, and a lot of the splash park!!

Sweet Pictures of Kids

We went to a wedding at a beautiful church in Memphis, and we took some precious pictures of the kids. What a beautiful place for a wedding!!

Last Day of School

My precious babies are so grown up!! I am so proud of them, but I'm still having trouble believing I am going to have a 1st grader and K4 preschooler!! Oh my how time has flown by way too fast!!


After the birth of Grayton, Jason and I began running and became highly addicted!! I soon made my first jogging stroller purchase, The Tike Tech all terrain single jogger. It was wonderful until I needed another seat for Riley Kate. I got this Dreamer Design off of ebay, and I love it! I call it my freedom and my sanity because I can load up the kids and go running whenever I feel like it! The kids love to stroll. They usually ask to go. We have run several races just for fun--Delta Jubilee 5K, Juke Joint Festival 5K, St. Jude 1/2 Marathon, Double Decker 10K, 300 Oaks 10K, etc. We love to run and if there is a race we can make it to, we'll run it!! We are running about 4 to 5 miles a day now with long runs of 7 to 12 miles on the weekends!


Since Grayton's 1st birthday, I have ventured out a bit and started baking and creating my kid's birthday cakes each year. Also, I am the homeroom mother for Grayton's class, so I am trying to get creative with my baking. I am not very good at it, but it is so much fun!! If anyone has any new cute ideas, share them with me.
