40th Anniversary

June 10th of this year was my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary. 40 YEARS!!  That is so amazing to me.  Landon, Kyndall and I put together a surprise party for them at Copeland's.  They were completely and utterly shocked. We had the best time celebrating the two of them with friends and family.



















 















I feel so blessed to have the amazing example of my parent's marriage to look up to. They have always put God first, family second, and everything else has fallen into place after that.  They are both hard workers, successful, selfless, trustworthy, honest, and have loved and supported the three of us kids since we were born.  I know what it is like to be unconditionally loved and I pray daily that I can radiate these types of qualities in my marriage. We love you so much Mom and Dad!!!  We can't wait to throw another shindig for your 50th! 



And now these 4 are off to Florida to celebrate!!!
Behave yourselves!  :)

Summer Lovin'

We are starting our Summer off with lots of time outside.  This year, Matt and I have spruced up the back yard, by adding outdoor lights and a t.v. on the patio, a new swing set for the kids, and we're in the process of pouring another patio with a fire pit.  I have two children who LOVE to be outside...in fact they would live there if they could.  


This kid loves to play in the mud!


Dress Up 


B-man loves to watch his Paw Patrol on the patio


Daddy brought a turtle home and Reese loved it.


Sis and I went shopping one Saturday morning. We were on a mission to find her new headbands, some "good smelling lotion" like Mommy wears, and new panties. 


Brooks enjoyed donuts with Daddy one morning.


Happy Memorial Day weekend!




Ice Cream for Dinner :)










Pool Fun!!




We went to watch Bryn and EG play softball.




Linz, Les, and I had dinner at PF Chang's.



I'm thrilled it's only the second week of June.  We have so much fun planned for this summer...bring on the warm weather and SUNSHINE!!!




Kayla's Wedding

Kayla and Scott had a beautiful wedding on Friday, May 12. Our sweet little Reese was the flower girl, and she did such a great job.  We had the rehearsal dinner on Thursday night and I got to see Stefanie (who I hadn't seen in over 12 years) and Ginger (who I hadn't seen in 8 years). It was so good to get to hug their necks at such a great celebration. 
















The wedding was at Avondale in Bentonville and was just perfect. Kayla was a beautiful bride and our whole family had a fabulous night celebrating her and her new family. 






The Wedding party




All the cousins


















The last time the 3 of us were together and dancing was at the Electric Cowboy in college.










Nurses Week - thankful for these 4 nurses.




Love this girl!!


This sleeping angel did so good as the flower girl.  It's safe to say she was off in dreamland.
