I'm alive!

I cannot even believe that it's already been two weeks since my last post. Seriously, where does the time go?

OK, so we recently celebrated Isabella's best friend's fourth birthday party at Pump-It-Up. Can I just tell you how much I love watching these two play together?

Isabella & Hudson
Both his mom and I joke about them being betrothed to each other. OMG, wouldn't it be funny if in a very distant future they actually did end up together? How cute would that be? One thing's for sure, between the two of us we have plenty of pictures of them for the rehearsal dinner slide show.

We had a wonderful Father's Day celebration yesterday. We went to church on Saturday night so that we could sleep in on Sunday and spend most of the day lounging around the house.

Scott and the kids right before the opening of the presents.

We then went over to my brother's house for dinner with the rest of the family.

Apparently the girls were enjoying a winter wonderland.
Did I mention it's been over 100°F around here?

My Mom & Dad.

My boys.

Me and my brother Chris.

Other than that, we've been SUPER busy around here lately. For one, I've been working like a maniac on planning Isabella's upcoming 4th birthday party. The invitations are made and ready to be mailed. This year we're doing a carnival theme and I'm thrilled with everything I've got planned and in the works. I only hope it turns out as fun as I'm envisioning it.

Last week Isabella had VBS and Scott used some vacation time to work on our latest DIY home improvement project, and let me tell ya it's a big one. Probably the biggest one we've ever tackled. It involves working outside under the burning sun in 100°F plus temperatures and strategically placing lots and lots of these:

As you've probably already figured out, we're putting in a brand new patio. The good news is we've gotten a lot of it done and it looks awesome. The bad news is we've still got a ways to go. I can honestly say it's been a monster of a project, but we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and cannot wait to finish it. I promise to share more and better pictures as soon as it's completed.

OK, gotta go now, but I promise to be back soon. Until then!

I think life in general picks up during the summer...warmer weather means more activities! Glad to see you are still alive and love the pictures. Girl you are so pretty - love your hair!

I have no doubt that Isabella's 4th bday will be the talk of the town - you are one awesome party thrower..maybe you should become a party planner...I know I'd hire you!!
