Backyard BBQ

I forgot that I don't have a picture of the sixth member of our family on the Blog.
So, here she is, our Violet. She got into a lot of trouble this Memorial Day.
First, after we were done eating breakfast, she stole a tub of butter off the counter and ate the whole thing--YUCK! Then, she kept getting into the garbage to eat the rib bones
from our BBQ--all I can say is YUCK again. She is a sweet pup though. She keeps
us on our toes--constantly!

Look at the dirty tears rolling down his cheeks--pouty!

Memorial Day!

I want to thank my cousin Meredydd for passing this photo along to me. My Nana had asked her to place some flowers at my Papa's plot. I saw this picture and a flood of memories came back. My Papa was an amazing man, full of love for his WHOLE family. I miss him so much and wish he were here to see my children grow. He was an amazing Papa to his 10 grandchildren, an amazing Dad to his four girls and an amazing husband to my Nana. I love you Papa!

Caden's school birthday snack!

Caden brought doughnuts and chocolate milk to share with his class!
His of course had to be special and had chocolate chips on it!

If you can't tell, Caden is quite the ladies man.

Wink, Wink!

Caden and his friend Colby.

Caden was so excited,
he chose Chili's for his birthday dinner.
They brought him this huge
chocolate shake--and all who know Caden,
He LOVES anything chocolate!
So, needless to say he was in
seventh heaven--or maybe sixth--since he just turned 6!

Blow out the candles and make a wish!

Aunt Heather made Caden and Indiana Jones cake--so awesome and so creative!!!

Thanks Aunt Heather!!!!

Thanks GiGi, I love you! She gave Caden a terrific "green" outfit--his favorite color!

My boys and their teams!

Brad scanned this picture into the computer and it went in a little weird so please excuse the border. Anyway, a picture of my three boys who are all about baseball these days! It has been an exciting season this year. This is Caden's first year in TBall and he's having a lot of fun. I usually sit by first base when I watch him play so when he makes it there, he comes over and gives me a hug--silly boy. I love it but I'm not so sure Brad does--he is the team manager. Evan is doing incredible! His team is undefeated so far and he is loving it. He is the youngest player on the team but his coach is now calling him "The Natural" since he has been hitting pretty big. For a little while he wouldn't even swing at the ball because he saw one of his teammates get hit pretty hard. But now he has been getting on base almost every turn he has at bat--YEAH! It has been a lot of fun watching my boys play this year and I can honestly say I might be a little sad when the season ends. I won't miss all the crazy running around though!
