One of my kiddos favorite things to do is walk down to our neighborhood pond and feed the ducks! Reed likes to ride his bike and AG likes to take a ride in the stroller;) She carries the bread for us and usually gets her a piece before we get there;) The ducks LOVE when we come and usually walk up to us! It's such a fun little adventure for us!!! If its not too late.....they talk me into taking them to the park! I will have to admit it's good exercise for mommy!!!;)

A few weekends ago, we had our first annual Girl's Trip to Branson!!! We stayed at Chateau on the Lake and really had such a laid back weekend! It was a perfect location because it only took us like 1.5 hrs to get there and really was SO much fun!!! Wendy and I drove up on Thursday afternoon because we got a special deal with our room where we got 1 night for free so we took TOTAL advantage of that and I'm SO glad we did! We checked into our hotel and then headed to the Landing for dinner! We decided to eat at Joe's Crab Shack and it did not disappoint! We went ALL out and ordered really BIG! We split the lobster and crab legs which was served in this very large bucket! We also ordered these crab nachos that were to DIE for!!!! We both MOWED it down! lol!!! We shared alot of laughs and had a wonderful time that night! The next day, we slept in until about 8:45 when the housekeeper knocked on my door.....uugh! I forgot to put my privacy sign up;( I really enjoyed just laying in bed watching Live with Kelly and Michael and drinking my coffee in PEACE! It was fabulous! We decided to get ready, go to lunch and then hit the outlet malls!!! The other girls were all coming up that afternoon so we just shopped til we dropped that day!!! I got AG and Reed some great deals at all of the different shops! SO much fun!!! Once the girls arrived, we shopped a little longer and then went to dinner at this Yummy Mexican place at the Landing! It was great but our service......NOT SO much!!!! We still managed to have fun! We had a long dinner and then came back to our hotel and hung out in the hotel room and talked all night! Fun Girl Times!!! Saturday was our day of SPA SPA SPA!!!!!!! RELAXING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FOR SURE!!!!!!! I started my morning at 9:00 with a Pedicure and Manicure and then had a Mommy-to-be massage which was FABULOUS and later that afternoon a wonderful FACIAL!!!! My facial was probably my FAV!!!! I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF THIS DAY!!!!! We shopped and went to dinner that night and celebrated Jessica's birthday at a fabulous Italian resteraunt!!! We had such a fun trip with just us girls and I look forward to doing this again each year or about every 6 months!!!! I was so glad my sister was able to come!!!! We really enjoyed each other and got to hang out without kids for once!!!! I was SO proud of the hubs for keeping the kids by himself for about 2 days and then his parents came up that weekend to help out as well!!!! They all told me my kids were REALLY GOOD which makes momma happy!!!! I always miss my babies but it was MUCH NEEDED GIRL TIME FOR SURE!!!!!
Reed and Anna Grace LOVE when I let them play with Play-Dough!!! It is a special treat because I have to supervise this pretty closely.... Reed used to eat it, but I think he has grown out of that finally! Reed now likes to try to mix up the colors so if he does, I just let him even though the OCD in me really does NOT like mixing the colors!!! But, I have learned alot over 3 1/2 years to not sweat the small stuff!!! Some things are just OK.....you know! They love to make animals out of their play dough and make long snakes too! Anna Grace LOVES whatever Reed wants right now.....she is like a little copy cat.....but its cute!
I am a little behind on my blogging, but I wanted to say we had a great weekend with our family celebrating Lolly and Uncle Kevin's birthday party! It was a busy weekend with the Razorback game on Saturday.....but such a fun one!!! Both families came to visit and my sister and her family came up as well! Of course, we are running out of room in our house, so Cody's parents stayed with us and my parents and Lindsay's family stayed at a hotel. It worked out great and after church on Sunday, the guys played golf and we took the kiddos swimming at the hotel! Lolly was sweet to stay at home with Anna Grace so she could nap;) We love our family SO SO much and don't know what we would ever do without them! Happy Birthday Lolly and Uncle Kevin!!!! We had SO much fun celebrating with yall!!! div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">
These two made crowns at school and wanted to wear them when they got home. Of course, Reed had to try on the pink one and then he decided he liked his blue one better;) They make me laugh so much these days! They are both growing up way too fast!!!
