baseball and golf!


This weekend has been pretty eventful for Anna. We went to a little league baseball game Friday night and played golf Saturday and Sunday. I played absolutely TERRIBLE but it was fun! Here are a few shots from Friday. I'll get some from Saturday soon. Hope you all had a fun weekend too!

I love this one!!


Anna just loves "Mr. Joey"! I think it's mutual!


I had to take a few pictures Friday afternoon of Anna watching Huntley out the window.. it was too cute to pass up...


Be back soon..........

Why is it that when I am certain I hear my cell phone ringing from WAY across the house and I run through 8 rooms to answer it... it never fails to be my imaginations singing Breathe (2 a.m.) by Anna Nalick in my head. THEN when I am CERTAIN it is my imagination and ignore it... I miss a phone call?!?!

My friends little boy thought he saw something and when he realized he really didn't see anything he said, "Daddy, I think I need to have my imagination checked!" (Totally adorable little boy!)

Well, I may need to get my imagination checked! I've probably knocked out 3 miles today with my "in-house-phone-run-a-thon".


Okay now that I'm off my soap-box.... back to the blog!!

Casey fed Anna bananas last night. Not sure if she actually ate any or not... what do you think?
(It was great and made for some cute pictures...)

Even more than eating, Anna loves outside. She loves to look out the window and watch Huntley and REALLY loves to get in her stroller and stroll down the street. If she is fussy, I can just walk outside with her and she immediately calms down. Today was such a nice day I took her swing outside. She loved swinging while Huntley played and I read my book. Of course I had to try and get some photos!





Well, I better run. Hope you all have a happy weekend and I'll be back in a day or two!!

Many of you probably know that I'm not much of a morning person. When I was in High School my twin sister would wake up at 5:30 to get ready for school and I would wake up at 7:05 just in time to get dressed, brush teeth and get in the car at 7:15. I was always more of a night person I guess. I liked to shower and dry my hair before bed so I didn't have to deal with it in the morning. (I still do this sometimes.)
If you asked me know I would say I'm a "day" person. I still have a hard time waking up but by the time Anna goes to bed at 8:00 I'm ready to call it a day!
But even though 6:45am gets here way too soon every day... I'm loving my mornings!! I get up and Anna is always already awake playing happily in her bed. She yaps my head off while she's eating breakfast- (seriously, I don't know how she finds time to eat she babbles so much). And after her bottle it's play-mat time. I don't turn the TV on or anything... just the peaceful sound of Anna's happy yapping in the morning sun!

Hope you all LOVE your morning this morning too!

Weekend with Family!



and FUN!
Casey's family came in town for the weekend and we had a great time!!

Mary Mae made friendship bracelets for us.


Amberly wanted to too-


But once she finished picking out her favorite color (which took longer than you would think) she was on to something else...


Although it looks like she may be singing a four-year-old's version of tupac she actually specializes in Hannah Montanna! She's a cutie!


We all went to Eatza Pizza and ate good food and the kids played games. I absolutely hate that I forgot my camera. It was classic!
Samuel (a kid who loves racing more than anyone I know) played the racing games and was QUITE animated! He was so excited and having so much fun that at one point four complete strangers gathered behind him to watch him play the game... it was at this moment that his car went airborne and did 4 back flips and he screamed at the top of his lungs in complete excitement "OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOODNESS!!!!" I would have given anything to have had that documented by photos!

Anna played in her exersaucer lots of the time and was always entertained by someone... here her daddy is down there playing with her! Sweet times!!


She loves it!

Mimi gave her a bath... I think she loved this too!


It was a fun weekend!
Today things are back to normal - Anna's napping, Casey's working (even though he's off), and I'm cleaning, cooking, and blogging!

Hope you all have a HappyDay and may it be full of sweet-rest-

not gonna smile!

Anna was trying hard not to smile yesterday...


but she wasn't too good at it!


We've had a fun, eventful week. Case and I went to Florida for the week on a business trip while Anna stayed with Zannie and DaddyBen! I think we ALL had a blast! I'm not sure if mom and dad took any pictures but if they did I'll try to get some of their week. I do know that Anna was quite the hit! Zannie had all sorts of fun things for her to do and all sorts of fun people for her to meet!!
Casey and I also had a great time.. would you believe I almost made the trip without taking a single picture!!!
We even got to take a little day trip over to Naples to see my grandparents!! LOVE YOU GB & BB!! (and U.Luke and GG too!!)

Once we reunited with Anna we decided to spend a little time with Maggie, Tommy and Paula.. it was fun to see them! We went to the botanical gardens..
AND.. I got my camera back out... but I'm waiting for Paula's pictures because she had some REALLY great ones!!!

We attempted to go to a CVS I think Paula was scared to go into a walgreens with me because of my last Walgreens trip... to get a photo disc made but the photo machine wasn't working quite right and we couldn't get a disc with all the pictures so it may be a little while before I can post Paula's photos!

We are now back in town waiting on Casey's family to come for the night!
Have a good weekend!

Here are a couple of pictures I did manage to snap :






Have a HappyDay!!

I took a few pictures of Anna playing. Her new exersaucer is now a daily routine and she loves it!!
Another new daily ritual is CEREAL and BANANAS! Anna LOVED the cereal but when I tried to introduce the bananas to her she was a little unsure. Now, we mix them in with the cereal and she loves it!
I'll try to get some pictures soon!
Until then....
...I hope you enjoy the exersaucer too!!
