I can't believe how fast this year is going by. It is already time to celebrate your dad and your children's dad. My dad is just great and so is my husband I hope they both have a great day today. This is what Mike got for father's day:

This is something he has been wanting for a while and since he wanted it so bad I agreed. Everyone thinks I am crazy, but I don't see anything wrong with him having this. He works hard and is a great husband and father. Mike I love you Happy Father's Day ( Happy anniversary, Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas........for a while. lol).
Well since he ended up getting the Harley we also have to have a place to keep it hence this:

Right now he is outside getting everything moved over and just cleaning up around the yard and shed. I really do appreciate my wonderful husband!!!!!

Today my wonderful mother-in-law is celebrating her birthday. She is one of the best people I know and my kids love her so much. They always want to go to Mamie's and Pa's to visit. I never have to make them or guilt them into it because they just enjoy being there so much they consider it a treat to go. She has all of her grandkids wrapped around her little finger. Happy Birthday Mamie we love you lots:

Kaylee's room

Because our house is so small the baby shares a room with me and her daddy. That is the reason I have not really decorated too much. But today I finally hung up her name sign her Aunt Chelle got her and the stuffed blanket teddy I had her name embroidered on. I could not get a real good picture of it but here is the best one that I have.

I really love the yellow and pink it is so pretty together. Thank you Aunt Chelle I absolutely love it and I am glad I finally got it up.

Fun with the kids

I started thinking about all that we did in May as a family,we really had a good time. We took the kids to the aquarium in Chattanooga. I also took Kaylee to the hands on discovery center in Murfreesboro. I am going to try to find some pictures to show how much fun we had. We plan on taking the kids to the zoo in Nashville and also taking them back to the aquarium. We also are talking about taking them to numerous places in and around our community. We have been talking about how soon our oldest will be graduating and how soon he will be out on his own, hopefully in college. I really hope that he goes to BYU. But I am trying not to pressure too much. Anyway here are some pictures of some of our outings:

This is outside the aquarium Nikki and Kaylee were playing in water.

Ryan found him a friend in the butterfly room at the aquarium.
I could not find any pictures from the discovery center but Kaylee had a blast. I will take bunches next time we go.

I know it has been so long since my last post. I have not been too busy, just not idle either. We have had three birthdays and a graduation since my last post. Braden turned 5 on the 16th, my little man. My husband had a birthday on the 19th. And my sister had a birthday on the 20th. Of course that was all in May. Plus on May 16 my sister's oldest boy graduated high school. This weekend he is moving to Nashville with his dad to attend ITT. To say we are proud of him is an understatement. I was so proud for him graduation night. I think I teared up as much as his mom did. Nikki and Ryan and Kaylee are all good. Tomorrow I am starting to potty train Kaylee. WE will see how it goes. Nikki went to cheer camp last week in Murfreesboro and tomorrow she is leaving for church girl's camp. She is so excited she loves camp she will be in Crossville until Saturday. Ryan is trying to enjoy summer vavation as much as possible.
