Big Girl Bed!

Look who has been sleeping in a "big girl bed" for over a week now! She has slept through the night from the beginning and hasn't gotten out of her bed once!  Yay! Can't believe she is growing up so fast!

So very proud of herself

Fourth of July at the Beach!

We spent the week of Fourth of July at the beach! MiMi and Grandad were so kind to let us use their condo for the entire week!  The kids and I drove up and spent a few days, then Chad joined us midway through the week.  Our friends, the Hindes, came and stayed with us for a couple of days to celebrate the 4th!
The weather was beautiful, the beach was great, and there was a lot of action! We had a great time!
 We even had time to do some puzzles and make some crafts!

 The whole crew making a giant sand castle!
 Cooper and Cooper...best buds!
 Sweet Kyleigh!
 Hadley loved playing Ladderball. Ha!
 Kyleigh even let the boys bury her a few times!
 Yummy Fourth of July cupcakes Lauren made!

Trip to the candy store before fireworks!
 Happy Fourth of July!


We were able to see lots of fireworks right off the balcony!



Cooper decided on a Water War themed birthday party this year.  It was a lot of fun to prepare for, and I think it was an overall success. 
Ready for war!

My friend made these awesome cookies!
War Prep/Goody Table

We split up the kids into two teams and had an actual war with water balloons,  water guns, and barricades.  Somehow nobody got any pictures of this.  We were all probably either taking cover or laughing too hard. :)


This girl loves some chocolate like her Mama!
Sweet Jackson  even joined in on all the camo fun! 

We are so blessed to celebrate with sweet family and friends!

Cooper turns 5!

Can't believe this sweet little boy is 5 years old! At 5 years old, Cooper is such a soft hearted, caring, rule following, sweet boy.  He LOVES to play.  He can sit for hours upon hours upon hours in the playroom playing with his toys.(He does prefer to have someone in there to play with though.)  His favorite toys include Legos, any type of animals, soldiers, superheroes, and cowboys.  Cooper is very inquisitive and doesn't seem to forget anything.  He is a fast learner and such a smart boy! He loves to laugh and be silly.  He is a joy to be around and a good friend to others.  Cooper weighs 46 lbs and is 44 inches tall!
We had such a fun day celebrating our favorite boy.  It was also fun because his birthday was on a Saturday this year.  We were able to have his party on his actual birthday!

 Happy birthday to the boy that made us parents! We couldn't possibly love you more!
