Only a little behind...

Yep, that's me.  Behind on my posts.  Behind on my photo editing.  Is anyone surprised here?  Well, I am definitely not. 

Now that I got that submission out of the way, on to the post at hand.

Every celebration of our country's independence is spent with our family.  We eat, laugh, and watch fireworks from the pier.  There is nothing like it.  

All the while though, we remember the reason we celebrate.  Remember those that we honor.  Those that fought, died, and still fight today.  Those that sacrifice everyday for my freedom...for my family's freedom...for my son's freedom.  My family and I are eternally grateful for all that you do.  So even if it seems like we forget while we are eating, laughing and watching fireworks from the pier, we still remember.  And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Ok, so the last one isn't a great picture, but this is ALL the boy did all day.  He ate peaches.  Seriously, loved them.

Happy (late) 4th!

Senior: Walker

My how time flies...

The sweet baby boy with the puppy dog eyes...

Watching The Lion King EVERY DAY for what seemed like years...

You've grown up into such a handsome and kind young man.  I am so proud of the man you are becoming and I can't wait to see what's in store for you next.

Yes, he drew that.  He is awesome.

See?  I told you he is handsome!


I love you so much!

Down By The Bay...

...where the watermelons grow...back to my home...I shall not go...for if I momma will say..."Did you ever see a bear, combing his hair, down by the bay...

Don't you remember singing that song to the top of your lungs as a kid?  Do you happen to remember your parents' eyes bugging out of their head because it is a never-ending song?!  Nah, I don't either.

Anyway, we ventured down to the bay in Fairhope one afternoon with my mom to relax and soak in the sun.  (That was my mom's intention only).   What we came home with was a pretty sick little boy.  He was acting very sleepy during the trip, but he had been running around and playing so much that we just figured he was tired.  Oh no.  He was running a high fever by the time we got home.  Poor baby.

Down by the bay, though, he didn't have a fever so we watched the ducks, played in the sand and slept in the sun / shade.  Overall, a very relaxing day.




And my favorite of the day:

...down by the bay...where the watermelons grow...back to my home...I shall not go...

It's stuck in your head now too, isn't it?
