Friday night was a lot of fun! It's Sunday and I am sooo tired. After church we ate lunch over at some friend's house. We got home about 4:00. All three of us took a nap at 4:30...we FINALLY woke up at 7:15!! It was a very lazy afternoon! What makes it better is the fact that I am off work for the next two weeks..YIPPEE! JP and I are heading to the lake cabin Tuesday. I will try and post pictures when we come home Wednesday! HAPPY 4th!

My sister-n-law, Amy, called me this morning and shared some really sad news... There is a little 3 year old girl in MacKenzie's class at school AND church named Erin Stewart. While on vacation at the beach, she fell and hit her head at the pool. She got up and continued to play, not appearing to be in much pain....different circumstances took place throughout the following 12 hours that landed them in the hospital ER. ( I don't want to share many details, b/c I'm afraid I will not recall them correctly.) ANYWAY....the doctors did a CT scan of her head and found that she was hemorrhaging and there were several blood clots. She was air lifted to a different hospital and had surgery to relieve some of the pressure on her brain. She came out of the surgery and is in a medicine induced coma.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray for this little girl and her family. PRAY FOR A COMPLETE HEALING! They need a miracle!

I just HAD to post this picture

A few weeks ago, JP went over to aunt Rose's house and he and BJay played in the sprinkler system. Scott doesn't want me to post most of the pictures b/c JP's naked, (you know men are weird about that sort of thing!) ANYWAY...I had to post this one! It's my favorite!

More from the beach....completely out of order!

Dig with the shovel....not the toothbrush! Cheeeeeze!

Me and my sweet boy on the pier. JP & Daniel (he LOVES Daniel)
We had to fill both buckets with water from the ocean. He collected shells,rocks etc. and dropped them from one bucket to the next. This kept him busy for HOURS! No joke!
Nanny and JP watching the fireworks at Broadway...LOVED them!
Take notice of the weird little man always carries around something. We've now moved from a DVD to a toothbrush! No comments, please!
This is JP in the pack-n-play. This was the ONLY time he was in the pack-n-play!

Every time we rode in the car, he had to watch VeggieTales or Hermie...we got very tired of it, so we introduced him to the headphones. They were a hit!

It's a bird...It's a plane....

No! It's Andrea and Kathi para sailing at Myrtle Beach! This was my 2nd time para sailing, and if you have never done it....JUST DO IT! It's awesome. I'm not sure which is more fun, the ride that you take in the raft out to the boat, or the actual time in the air. They take you 350 feet up. Once you reach a certain height, it is so peaceful. You cannot hear anything. No water, no voices, not even the motor on the boat. It is completely silent. It was the greatest 15 minutes of my trip. I would encourage everyone to try it at least once! It's a blast! The ride out to the was hard to even hold yourself up b/c the ocean was so rough. Of course Kathi had to get a picture. Thank goodness I didn't fall all of the way out!

Better late than never...

JP decided Friday night (before we left on Sunday) that he liked the ocean. These are the first pictures of him letting us put his feet in. After he realized that the water was not going to swallow him up, he LOVED it! The next morning, we met Amy, MacKenzie and Dwayne at their hotel in downtown Myrtle Beach. The kids enjoyed the ocean and pool together!

Blog Makeover and Pick-Up Anniversary

I am so excited about my new blog design! Ragan @ Blogger Boutique did an awesome job! Thanks, Ragan!

Now... ONE YEAR AGO TODAY, Kathi and I headed to Guatemala to pick up the remaining pieces of my heart! I will forever remember this date! I thought I would share a few of my favorite pictures from that day.....(I haven't forgotten about the beach pics. I will be posting more of those later.)
