A wedding at American Village

A good family friend's daughter married the man of her dreams on Saturday, August 31st at American Village in Montevallo, AL. It was a special day in which we were honored to observe. Leslie made a beautiful bride & loved all the small details. The reception was held next door in a barn with delicious food & good music. Ms. Jayne, you have a wonderful daughter. Thank you, Leslie & Dominic for allowing us to celebrate with you.

Stryker's super fast new shoes

Stryker joined our love for Reebok Zig shoes. He picked these out himself saying they were like daddy's but that these were super fast shoes!

Chuck E Cheese

We checked out the new Chuck E Cheese on Hwy 280 one afternoon & loved all the new rides/games.

Birmingham Zoo

We have spent many hours at the Birmingham Zoo. Buying a membership was our best investment. It's nice to go whenever we feel the need (which is often with our crew & friends) knowing we don't have to spend any money.

Sammy - the pet turtle

Stryker insisted on bringing this turtle home after finding it on a night walk at Coco's house. Coco made a home for it in a rubbermaid bin so Stryker could carry it. Stryker named him "Sammy" after the turtle in the movie Turtle Tails. After a few days, we were able to teach Stryker a lesson when we released him back to the woods so he could be with his own mom.

Lakeshore fun

One Sunday afternoon, I decided to take my family to Lakeshore for some outdoor fun. We hiked through trails, waited through creeks, & played on the soccer fields. I love making memories as a family.

Zoo & pool time w/ Coco

I had the opportunity to spend a day with my best friend (Coco - my mom) along with my kiddos. We enjoyed several hours at the Birmingham Zoo then cooled off at Coco's community pool/playground!

Upgraded car seat

Lake is happy to face forward in her new car seat but not as happy as big brother who can actually play with baby sister now! Love how close they are.

Hanging out

One summer evening, we ate dinner with our neighbors at Stix Japanese Grill. Stryker & Lake decided it was more fun hanging out the sunroof!

Lake's first trim

Lake got her first hair cut "aka: trim" at the same salon where mom & Coco get their hair cuts! She did great & loved watching herself in the mirror. Thank you Azelen for such a great time!

Ms. Puny

Snuggle time was all the weekend held for my sick little one. At least I was able to teach her about golf while we watched 2013 Open Championship! We cheered Phil to a victory!
