Getting ready for Vacation!!

I'm still here. It's been a while since I posted last.

We are going on vacation:) Our in laws are taking us to Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Dollywood. We are so excited. We usually go to Tennessee every year for a few days but this year we will stay 4 nights, so we will have more time to do things. My kids are so excited, they love Dollywood. Okay Hubby and I do too. Thanks so much to my mother and father in law for taking us every year, they really have helped us out alot over the years and this is just one other way. Thanks a bunch.

Also my mother in law called me yesterday to let me know she had paid for me a pedicure at a local salon. Oh my little tootsies need some serious attention. Ever since I have gotten married and had children I haven't taken care of myself and one way is my feet. They are so rough and cracked, from walking around my home barefoot all the time. I'm really excited to get them pampered a little bit. Thanks Becky I greatly appreciate it.

I really have a great family. My parents, my in laws, my sister, my niece and all of the other people in my life are so wonderful. Thank you all so much for all you do for me and our family. I Love you all so much and am very greatful to have such wonderful people in my life.

Kitty pictures!!

I finally got pictures of the kitties. I couldn't get any of the kids holding them though. They are normally much cuter, but they had been taking a bath in their water bowl.

Wow!! It's been awhile since I have posted. It's been kind of busy around here the last couple of weeks.

My baby graduated preschool...a happy, sad, day...for me. Colton finished first grade and is officially out for the summer. And my baby turned five...even sadder.

So the last week of school was a lot of running and then planning a birthday party and then just being too lazy to do anything because of the weather.

It is officially summer here in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA. Usually our summers are very mild. They may get around the upper 80s around the end of July and August. Well we are at the beginning of June and it has already been around the mid to upper 90s for almost a whole week. I don't know what's worse cold weather in June or scorching hot weather.

I know I should not complain. We can cope with heat, we have 2 window air conditioners that keep our small home nice and cool and we have a pool in the back yard. Our pool is just one of those small blue inflatable kind, its 3' deep and 13 round. Not very big but perfect for the kids. Let me tell you my children have thoroughly enjoyed it this past week (and me and hubby have too). It needs more water because they have about splashed it all out. So we should not complain and just remember we are lucky to have to deal with heat instead of the floods they are dealing with in the midwest.

Today was cooler than the last few and its supposed to be in the 80s for the rest of the week. To me that is perfect weather. Well maybe upper 70s. But you can't be too picky.

So I almost forgot yesterday was my mom's birthday.

Happy Birthday Mom and Happy Birthday Emma. I Love you both very much and am so thankful for having you in my life.
