July 4th, Pool Parties, VBS and more

We had one steaming hot 4th of July this year. Maybe it's the pregnancy but it was miserably hot. We went to Mimi and Pops to cook out and the boys cooled off with a slip-n-slide. They had such a blast and were worn out!!

I can't wait until the day that I can get a serious picture from both of them at the same time. haha!

Matt had to work last weekend so the boys stayed at Mimi and Pops so that I could rest and not overdo it. They had so much fun and I truly appreciate the rest. I missed them like crazy though. Sunday they had a pool party they were invited to. They were so excited because they have been dying to swim at the city pool with the diving boards.

 My fearless boys jumping off the diving boards like a pro!

 Boy don't I look tired and miserable in the summer heat.. :-) However, Parker is growing more and more every week. We have officially reached 35 weeks and I have started my weekly appointments have begun. She is very active but also enjoys her sleep. I sure hope she enjoys her sleep when she graces us with her presence! Matt and I went to grab some Mexican food because momma is craving salsa. We take the jeep everywhere lately because pretty soon our family of 5 will not all fit at the same time. I have a feeling it will be me that is booted out!
During the summer the library has "shows" for kids on Wednesdays. Sometimes it is magicians, puppet shows, music, etc.  Their Grammy is taking them and the boys are having a blast. Hunter had to have a picture with one of the performers. Alana Thompson joined in!

VBS has official begun... it feels so strange not helping out this year but I decided there was no way I could. Maybe and hopefully next year! The boys are having a blast and are beyond exhausted at the end of the night.

 Gage decided to take a break from going to his class and hung out with Mimi and me. He found a few rocks outside that someone hid. I promise it is so hard for this kid to take a serious picture. He keeps us laughing all the time.

Parker's Shower

The many people we love showered Parker yesterday with many goodies. Everything was beautiful and made us feel beyond loved. Parker is one lucky and blessed little girl already. Having two boys already made it feel very strange seeing all the "girly" items and decorations. Loved it! We couldn't have asked for more if we tried.

The delicious Big Brother cookies for the boys. Of course, we had to have an extra one just in case one broke.

My sweet and wonderful hostesses

I couldn't have made it through this pregnancy without the two people pictured above and below. They are my rock. This has been a very tough pregnancy emotionally and physically. They have helped beyond measure and without hesitation. I am very blessed to have them in my life and so thankful that God placed them there. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Matt and Mom "Mimi"!

All stars, swimming and 30 weeks pregnant

Hunter was chosen for the 7U All Star team in baseball this year. He has worked really hard as often as he can to try to improve his skills. This went to show that hard work pays off. We are happy for him and hope he has fun in the district tournament! We are also very thankful that his tournament is in town this year. Some people had to travel but

My mom and I took the boys swimming at my sister-in-laws house. It has been raining for days prior and so the water was sooo cold. We just watched the boys swim :-)

Ice cream fun at Mimi and Pops house!
My silly boy disappears after getting a shower and his pjs on. He walks in the room like this. haha!

I am officially 30 weeks pregnant with little Parker. Unfortunately, yes my face is showing how exhausted I am. She is doing great though. She is a little over 3 lbs and still a wiggle worm. At the last specialist appointment they did another 4d ultrasound so we got to see her even more. She had the hiccups the whole time which was beyond adorable and you could tell that she had a little hair on her head already. Can't wait to meet her in person!

We had the All Star tournament here in town June 16th & 17th. We played Alex City on the 16th and lost then we played Phenix City on the 17th and lost. They were both travel teams and honestly we gave it our all. The kids had fun and the coaches were wonderful. You could tell just at practice how much the kids had grown skill wise. Win or loose- this team was a winner to me!

 Little brother supporting his brother .. haha

This is out of "order" but here are some from practice. Gage begged to go to practice each day even though it was sooo hot. He enjoyed running the bases after the game :-)
