Zac Brown Band~

Two weekends ago I got to go away again (yes two weekends in a row) with one of my closest friends Emily. We went to see the Zac Brown Band in Charlotte. We saw him in concert last year at Kooka Booth and decided to take a girls trip to this year to see him in Charlotte.

Last Year at Zac Brown

We started our morning off heading for Concord Mills I mean really who sends two girls with no husbands or kids to Charlotte and dosen't let them go to Concord Mills. We had a blast walking through the SEVEN yes 7 neighborhoods of stores that they have.

Now where do two Moms go without kids for dinner...You guessed it Chick-fil-a and we enjoyed every single bite (not to mention that we didn't have to feed anyone else)!

We drove by the raceway and took a few pictures...but didn't have time to stop Zac Brown was waiting for us.

We had an absolute BLAST!! We laughed and laughed and just enjoyed the night! IT WAS SO STINKIN FUN!


LOOK LOOK--there he is we got our picture taken with Zac Brown!!! =) Well he is in the picture he's the teeny tiny little guy between our heads on stage. lol

This was his largest concert so far 19,000 people. He is amazing to listen to in person and puts on a great show I LOVE his music.

A little bit a chicken fried.....

We had a great time shopping and hanging out. The concert as you can probably tell from the picures was crazy fun!! Thanks for going with me Emily I can't wait to see where our road trip takes us next year!

Many Miles~

Many Memories.

It has been 3 years this month since we bought our minivan. I LOVE it! There are a lot of other cars I dream of driving but with a family this is the perfect vehicle to have. As you can see we have put a lot of miles on it. It had 30,000 miles on it 3 years ago and now its over 100,000. Lots of trips to see friends and family.

Heres to going another 100,000 Miles!

Proud Mommy Moment~

Of course as a Mom I have lots of proud Mommy moments but this is one of my all time favorites watching Christian write his name for the first time (poor thing he has 9 letters to write). He did AWESOME and was so proud of himself. Here are a few pictures of his great work!

Beach Weekend~

This past weekend I had the privelage of going away with some of the ladies from our Sunday School class to Myrtle Beach for the weekend. We had the BEST time. It was the first time that I have left both the boys and Ed for the weekend. The boys had a awesome time with their Daddy they have been telling me all about it since I got back and they were quite sad to learn he had to go back to work today and wasn't taking them for another polar bear swim (more on that to come later). I enjoyed so much this weekend while I was gone so I made a short list of my weekend blessings:

*Getting to share and learn more about some of the wonderful ladies I was with (19 of them!)

*not having to take care of anyone else for three whole days!

* staying up late and sleeping in until after 9am!

*eatting my dinner when it was nice and hot

* reading part of a book

* shopping without pushing a stoller

*going to the movie sand seeing an adult movie (Inception)

*going to the bathroom and showering all by myself (hey its the little things! =)

*laughing with other Moms

*Swimming in the ocean

*Riding in the car without handing over toys or listening to veggie tales

I could go on and on. I am so thanful that I was able to sneak away for a few day and greatful that my wondeful husband took care of the boys and even cleaned the house and had all of the laundry done when I got home. It was a much need break and I got some great R & R.

This week Aunt Rhonda came in for a few days with Kayla and Aidan. We usually try to get together when the kids are out of school for a few days and this Summer was slipping away so we threw it into this week! We didn't take a lot of pictures but here are a few from the day we decided to head to the Zoo when it was 100+ degrees.

We got a picture of all 4 kiddos looking at us after taking about 20 of them but hey its worth it right.

Christian 3 Aidan 6 Benjamin 2 and Kayla 9. Love this picture of Benjamin grinning as he is "flying" the plane he is soooo mischevious! Another picture of all the kiddos climbing up on the JeepBenjamin and AidanBenjamin and Kayla Kayla & Aidan- they acutally like having their picture taken now.
It was a HOT day to be at the Zoo but the kids had a blast and we got to see a lot of the animals. We look forward to all going back again...when the weather is much cooler.

Pizza!! This past weekend we made pizza at home with the boys. The LOVE when they are able to help in the kitchen.

I have come to realize that ordering pizza is not nearly as fun as making it at home (not to mention a lot less money). Here are the boys with our pizza crust super excited to help make dinner!
Spreading the sauce- he looks so big to me in this pictureBoth boys adding some cheese Pepperoni- they put some on the pizza but they also enjoyed a few pieces =) Waiting for it to bake Love this picture of Benjamin even those his mouth is full of delicious pizza My big man enjoying his pizza as well MMMM Good! Cheese- I cannot believe this boy is only 3 months away from being 4!!
