Time with Loved Ones

This weekend we celebrated Grammy's birthday! Audrey and Addison wanted to pick out a cookie cake for her.
We went out to eat for her birthday. While we were out to eat, Grandaddy gave the girls their "cow checks". Each year he sells a calf and gives them the money to save for their college expenses.  This has been a tradition started by my Pawpaw back when I was little, so I'm glad the tradition carries on.

We also got to spend some time with Nana.  It was so good to see her.  My girls can always make her smile and brighten even her worst days.  They love their Nana.

July Playdates with our Buddies

This summer we have been having so much fun! Almost every week we have been able to meet different friends for play dates.  The kids and adults have been enjoying these times together. We are very fortunate to have such great friends in our lives.
Our neighbor, Anna, moved to Georgia recently, but she was back for a visit.  So we took advantage of the few days she was in town to spend some time together.
The girls enjoyed some karaoke at CHOM.

...and popsicles...

...and swimming!

Another day we met up with our buddies Sarah and Emily at CHOM.  Following that fun, we cooled off with some Steel City Pops.

A few days later we met up with those same buddies for some water fun at the splash pad.

These two precious girls have spent much time swimming and enjoying popsicles!

Museum of Natural History Visit

Today we took the girls to the Alabama Museum of Natural History.  Both of them are fascinated with dinosaurs and they call this the "dinosaur museum".
We had so much fun walking around and looking at all of the artifacts.  The museum had a scavenger hunt for us to complete.  All of us had a great time looking for all of the objects on the list.

They loved measuring their hands against the dinosaur's "hand print".

I love being able to spend time doing fun things with my girls and learning at the same time.
