The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Girl Time

Every girl needs a girl's night out every now and then and thats just what we did !!! Cantina Laredo at Bridge Street was just the right spot!
A few of us just started out reading each others blogs and have been for maybe 2 years now... I'd say it was about time we all get together ;) I had already met everyone except Sarah.
So it was great to finally meet her and have some good girl time just visiting with everyone. Just catching up on what everyone has been up to this summer, of course chatting about our kiddos and the crazy things they do, and figuring out all the same friends we have in common( its such a small world) Kera and I have known each other since about the 5th grade, even used to spend the night together some, lost touch over the years, and now our blogs brought us back in touch. It was a GREAT night with some yummy food (loved the salad Joy) I had a blast and cant wait to do it again REAL soon!! SO thankful for all of my blogging friends God has brought me in touch with, I know you are always there to listen and to offer an encouraging word or advice!!
Joy, Kera, Sarah, Beth... had a GREAT time! Missed you Amy!! Brooke, & Ginny missed and was looking forwad to meeting you... we will definitely do it again!!

thanks for the pic beth

Cant believe how long its been...

Cant believe how long its been since I have posted anything!! I've been reading and still keeping up with all of you but just not making any time to post something myself. Just realized its been like 2 weeks or longer.... So here goes!!

We are still enjoying these long HOT summer days so much ( well not so much the HOT part)!! Just please could it slow down these last 3 weeks, just a little!

Gonna start by catching you up with how we spent our 4th of July.... It was GrEaT!! We headed on over to Atlanta, one of my very favorite places to go. Chad and I have lotsa fond memories of Braves games together while we were dating and after we married. Now its such a JOY to go and make more memories there with Sam. He is ALL AbOuT the Braves!! and boy does his daddy love that. We took him a couple years ago but for some reason missed out on last year. So, this year we knew we had to make it happen! Heading over for 4th of July was the perfect time and the weather, let me just say it couldnt have been any more perfect for baseball!! It was mid 80's and no humidity the whole time, PERFECT!! We drove over on Friday, was able to enjoy 2 great games, great food, some time with great friends who came over for the 2nd game, great fireworks, what more could you ask for!!

Now for lots of pictures =)

Just arrived at the hotel, Sam couldnt believe how big all the buildings were in downtown ATL

getting to Turner Field

of course we had to see Homer

testing out his pitching skills

love these 2 boys of mine ;)
