Someone is Growing Up

I can't believe in a few short days Kiely will graduate from high school. Where did the time go? When I first met her she was in 5th grade. Wow. If it went that fast for her I can't imagine when my boys get in school. Why must time go so quickly? 

Friday we are flying out to Texas to watch her graduate. I am so excited. I have never been to Texas before. I can't wait to see where the kids live. I heard it's hot and humid there, which I am not looking forward to because I have a tendency to sweat, a lot. Too much information? haha 

Anyways, here are some of her Senior pictures. She is such a beautiful girl. She looks just like me. haha, just kidding. But she does look a lot like her daddy! Love you Kiely!

My Best Friend's Wedding

 Here are some of the professional pictures from the wedding we were in last weekend. If you would like to check out more you can go to the photogrophers website here. 

This picture was taken in between gusts of wind! You can kind of see my hair blowing still.

Talan had to be bribed with Pop Rocks so that he would stay in one place. Good thinking Daddy!

The Groomsmen. I love Talan's face in this one.

The gorgeous couple. I just love these 2.

A Trip to Palm Springs

Hey everyone,
I'm Back! I can't say that I will be back for good, or for very long, but I am going to try. I feel like I have missed so many things that we have done that it would be so hard to go back and talk about it. Plus, I have been so horrible lately at taking pictures. Bad Mommy!! 

Last weekend, some very close friends of ours got married. We have known Tyler and Vanessa for about 8 years and they are very close to our family and our kids. They got married in Palm Springs at an estate that they rented for the weekend. Mark, Talan and I were all a part of the bridal party. It was an amazing wedding. I will post pictures and do a whole post of the wedding soon.

Originally, when we planned to go to Palm Springs, we were going to just have Gavin stay with my mom. I started having a little bit of anxiety about that about a week before the trip because lately Talan and Gavin have been inseparable. When one is sleeping the other has to wake him up. When one is with daddy, the other one wants to be with daddy and so on and so on. So we decided to get a condo and bring my mom so that my mom could stay with Gavin and swim during the day while we did wedding activities. 

It worked out perfectly because they had an awesome pool with a water slide. The kids turned into fish. We could not get them out of the water. I need to get these two into lessons soon. They are so good with their floaties on. I was shocked at Gavin...he didn't want any help...he went right down the slide, landed in the water and popped right back up, then swam to the side again. You get the picture.

I had to throw this one in here too...Mark taking the boys down the slide. He is a kid at heart!
