Today we went out to Squire Creek for a Pigskins and Pearls luncheon. Tech's head coach's wife. Kate Dykes, was behind the whole event. It was great! Over 120 ladies attended and it was basically a Football 101 crash course. It was great to see so many Tech supporters and friends. We have season tickets for the kiddos this year so it could make for some interesting football games......
Katie, Shelley, and myself
With some of the football players: Amy Stegall, Katie Hall, Dawn DeForrest, Alice Byrnes, Sharla McCluskey, Lauren Roebuck, Heather Gantt, and me.

Yay! Our beach pictures have been posted. You can only imagine trying to get a 2 and 3 year old to cooperate after being in the car for 45 minutes(due to traffic the 10 minute ride turned into 45!) but we got some good one! Click here and the password is tyler. I am DONE with pictures for a while after this...I am running out of wall space!

We headed back out to the park on Friday for a swim on the "beach" with the Hall family and the kids had a BALL! Those poor ducks had a workout but we stayed out there for about 3 hours and the kids entertained themselves for the most part. I enjoyed talking with Katie as they have been at the beach for a majority of the summer. We have missed them!
Jake is cracking me up with all of his swim gear!
Friday night we headed out with some friends for dinner and a movie. We saw Salt and it is an edge of your seat thriller. I highly recommend seeing with one!

I had originally planned to post about my weekend trip to Dallas and discuss all the ideas I had for LG's big girl room. Yet I stumbled across a blog that I found on a friend's blog that BLEW ME AWAY. It consumed my whole afternoon(so sorry to my husband) and I was in awe of the unconditional faith this family has. The Sullivan's are their name. Please check it out and start praying for Brady and his daughter Chloe. He and his wife have inspired me in so many ways. I WANT to have his faith!!!! So today I just wanted to share this site with you in order that you may be inspired and will pray for this family.

Jake jumping off the diving board at Toma Lodge without his flotation device. I cannot begin to tell you the transformation he has made from the beginning of the summer. Amazing!
Just too cute with all of his gear on!
Sharon came over last week with her crew and niece Camille. The 3 of them drove all over the yard in the car. This toy has been WELL worth the $$! They had so much fun!

We are back from the beach and had a great time. Jake and Landry Grace are becoming more and more comfortable in the water and loved the pool. On the last day of our trip they stayed on the beach for a total of 3 hours, which is long time for toddlers! They loved playing in the sand with their cousins. The condo we stayed in had 2 bedrooms plus a bunk bed area. LG ended up sleeping on the bottom bunk all week and Jake slept on a blow-up toddler bed in our room. We cooked in the condo every day so that made it nice not fighting the crowds for dinner at night.
It rained all day on Thursday, the day we were supposed to take beach pics, so we rescheduled for Saturday. The traffic was horrid on our way to take pictures in Destin(we opted to meet her at a great beach location) so we were late getting our session started. Hoping we got some good shots! LG hasn't had a potty accident in weeks, but when we were at the edge of the water taking some pictures....well you can imagine what happened next. And it was fine. We were almost done with the session and I had to just laugh it off! The pictures should be ready for viewing in 3 weeks, so we'll see.
In the mean time Matt is having to turn in his company computer(the one I am typing on!) and vehicle(we love the man van as we call it!). He is looking into buying our family a personal computer and he'll just drive Papaw's truck until he gets a car from his new company which should be next week.
A view from my chair of the play area at Waterscape.
They kids loved to the lazy river and we had a family photo op.
On the way home..............and oh so glad to be here!

We are having a blast at Waterscape in Ft. Walton. It's supposed to rain all week but we lucked out today with sunshine. We cancelled our beach pictures last night but rescheduled them for tomorrow night... keeping my fingers crossed! The kids are loving the beach and the pool. The only downfall of the ocean is that the waves and undercurrent are really strong. It has scared LG to death! Other than that, life at the beach is great. Will post more when we return.
