The Lion King

We went to see the Lion King at TPAC last night.  It was great!  The kiddos were mesmerized.  We had fun walking around downtown before the show and had dinner at The Spaghetti Factory.  It was a fun night on the town with the kiddos :)

Ten Ren Fest

This Memorial Day weekend has been super busy!! The Crush played Thursday night and Friday night (and won the city championship! But more on that later).  Saturday we worked the concession stand all day, then had dinner with friends.  Sunday was full of church, birthday parties, cookout, and family wiffle ball.  Today we spent the day exploring the Tennessee Renaissance Festival.  We had never been before and it was pretty neat!  We toured the castle of the man who owns the land and started the festival.  He and his wife actually live in the castle.  We watched one round of a jousting tournament, watched knife throwers, ate interesting snacks, and observed some very strange people!

We are also very thankful this Memorial Day weekend for all those who have served and continue to serve our country!

End of First Grade and Third Grade!

First Day of First Grade

Last Day of First Grade-
She looks so much more grown up!!

First and last day of 3rd grade!!
C decided to grow his hair out this year, that's the major difference I can see.  And I think the last remains of the baby face are gone :(

And a quick the-world-is-spinning-by-too-fast moment from yesterday.  I painted faces at the 3rd grade's End of The Year Fiesta.  So, as I was painting a little girls face she asked if I was C's mom.  I told her that I was and she proceeded to tell me that she has a crush on him and please don't tell him.  She said "I mean my heart flutters when I talk to him."  OMG!!!

First and last days of 1st and 3rd grades!  Actually, they are reversed, but blogger is very touchy and I'm not going to try to switch them :)

They both had a wonderful school year!  Both finished on the Honor Roll for the entire year!  They both had amazing teachers that we are going to miss very much.

Now bring on summer fun!!

Crushing the Competition

Our Crush softball season has flown by as well!  Actually, much of it has been rained out.  We have had such a rainy May!  I think Mother Nature is confused :). Our team has done so well this season. As of today, our record is 13-0!!! The girls are having a blast, too, which is the most important part (most of the time!).  

Our Weekend

The weeks and weekends seem to be flying by!  Nothing I can do to slow them down, so I'm trying to soak up every minute:). This weekend was full of cousins coming to visit, friend's spa party, 10-year-old losing a tooth after a several year break from the tooth fairy, and parties with friends and family to kick off the summer!  


April has been a month full of birthday madness, but each birthday deserves its own post. This post is full of sweet moments I've caught on my cell phone's camera recently that have nothing to do with April Birthday Madness ;)

Peace, Love, and Tie-Dyed Eggs

So, Easter want by in a flash! Grandma and Daddy B were here and I didn't get a single picture of them! It was a rainy cold weekend, so I actually didn't take many pictures of anything. No pics of our coordinated Easter frocks this year :). But, since the rain cancelled our ballpark plans on Easter weekend, we had plenty of time to dye eggs. We tried out an old school technique I found on Pinterest, no Easter egg dyeing kits from a box around here!

Sometimes A Month Goes By

In the blink on eye! No time for blog updates because life has been so wonderfully full! I hope to get caught up some today. Thanks to all those who brought my poor neglected blog to my attention ;)

Bachelorette Bingo

My cousin is getting married in 9 days! 2 weeks ago we took his fiancé out for a night of bachelorette Bingo following her lingerie shower. In our group of 6, 3 of us Bingo'ed. I won $200! Now I'm hooked :). It was a fun night and we are all looking forward to the wedding!
