10 Year Reunion!

My 10 Year reunion was the first weekend in October in Columbus and Bo's was the second weekend in October in Greenville! We had lots of fun at both of them.

Here are a few pics from mine first. We met up at the Homecoming game Friday night and then Lake Lowndes for family picnic and then the Country Club for dinner and dancing!

We got a picture of everyone in our class at the picnic
(this did not include spouses and children)

So Far Behind!

Ok bloggers, we are still alive! It is hard for me to update regularly now with a 2 year old! It's finding time in between naps and going to bed and doing chores in between!

Halloween has come and gone and so has Thanksgiving and Christmas! Bo and I have both had 10 year class reunions. It's about to be a new year and hopefully, I can keep up!

This year for Halloween, Brayden was a lion! I have to say he was a cute little lion with a big "ROAR". He had the roar down pat! We went to a couple of houses trick or treating and then went to eat with good friends! Bo had to work so he missed out on all the fun! He did get to go trunk or treating at church.

My Little Boy is a Big Boy Now!

This is a little late, but I have to brag! Brayden is now potty trained!! He has been for a little over a month now! I have to say it was very easy for us. I went to pick him up from school one Thursday and his teacher told me he was moving up to another class and they are potty trained. So, I went home and put big boy underwear on him and we had a few accidents that day and on friday. On Saturday, we had about 3 accidents ALL day and about 2 on Sunday! He was then potty trained on Monday with no accidents ALL day! He's done really well with his big boy underwear! I guess he was ready all along and I wasn't! I have enjoyed not having to buy diapers, but it's hard when we travel now!! We have to make several stops now, but it's worth it!!

Pumpkin Patch '09

We went to the pumpkin patch and had so much fun! We went during the week, so we were the only ones there when we got there. Brayden had a blast riding the John Deere tractors and playing in the corn! He also had fun playing around the pumpkins and picking them out! We came home with lots of pumpkins in ALL sizes!

Disney Live

We went to Disney Live in Tupelo a few weekends ago. We sat on the 3rd row and Brayden had a blast! I don't think he's ever sat so still! He did not budge the entire show! We got to see Mickey Mouse, Handy Manny, My Friends Tigger and Pooh, and The Little Einsteins! Brayden's favorites were Handy Manny and Mickey Mouse! Here's a few of the pictures!

Panama City Beach

We went to Panama City Beach last week for a little vacation and to play softball. It started out pretty rough! We went to Loxley to spent a little time with my brother and Ashley before heading to the beach....brayden was running a fever the night we got to their house, woke up and was still running fever so we took him to the doctor and it was the FLU....on our way back to Drew's house, my car goes dead! I keep saying my car is only 3 years old, what could be causing this to happen???? We were not out of gas either! I call AAA and they siad it was going to be an hour before someone was going to be there to tow us. I get a little upset because it's 95 degrees, no air, brayden is asleep with the flu, and we were headed out for the beach! Luckily, Drew and Ashley had taken the day off and were able to help out and get brayden somewhere with air.... we get the explorer towed and the shop can't do anything b/c the control panel is out, so we get it towed to the ford dealership and it's ends up that a "LOVEBUG" seeped through the air filter and shorted out the control panel. $350 I might add! The rest of the trip was great though! Brayden had a mild case of the flu and we were able to enjoy the beach, shopping and softball.

The only alligator we saw this time!

(B doesn't look like he has the flu...he's a tough little boy...he begged to go see the alligators, so we had to take him)

Brayden didn't have a great time at the ocean. He wanted to go to the "other beach" (the swimming pool)... the turtle was swinmming in the water outside our condo! He was BIG!

Some pics of the guys playing... we actually won 2 games this year!

Brayden got to run the bases with his daddy before the game. Here are some of the wives and girlfriends of the guys.

Playing Ball As Usual!

Finally, some new posts! I'm trying to catch up on the summer! So keep scrolling to see!

Brayden's new tee ball set! This was what we got him for his birthday. He loves it and it's so much fun watching him play!

Play Date at Lee Park

We met up with some college friends and their kids, played at the park, and enjoyed mexican afterwards!

Oh these kids have so much fun being outside!

Team Witness Softball

This is what we do on the weekends when Bo is off... SOFTBALL! We have lots of fun traveling and watching Bo play. Brayden always wants to be right there with his daddy. We have enjoyed getting to know the guys on Team Witness and have made wonderful friends this year!
Good Luck the rest of the season!

These pictures were taken this past weekend in Cullman, AL.

Gyser Falls

Bo, Brayden, and I loaded up one Monday and headed to Gyser Falls. This was our first trip there and we LOVED it. It was overcast when got there and actually pretty cool, but by lunch it started warming up. We stayed until Brayden couldn't hold his eyes open any longer. Brayden had the best time playing in the kid's splash area! Bo got to ride a couple of slides, but we mainly let Brayden play. We all enjoyed the lazy river and the wave pool!

4th of July

Fourth of July, we spent the weekend in Greenville with Bo's parents. It was good to get away and to spend time with family! Brayden swam all weekend. He loves the water. By the end of the weekend, he was swimming really well! He loved just jumping in!

Loving it Outside

We have spent a lot of time outside so far this summer even though it has been HOT, Brayden wouldn't have it anyother way! He has a little pool that he dives into and he has seveal times fully clothed, just when we were about to go somewhere! He's not scared of anything and loves the water.

Kevin and Pam's Wedding

Kevin Long and Pam got married in Orange Beach on Mother's Day weekend. (I'm just a little behind on posting) The wedding was beautiful and the weather couldn't have been any nicer for them. Drew and Ashley met us at The Wharf and picked up Brayden, so he didn't get to go to the wedding. The next day, we spent with Drew and Ashley. Brayden got to see the alligators, lots of was really only about 4, but that's a lot to me in one place! Here are pics from the wedding and from the visit with the alligators!

Kevin and Pam

The Boys: Jay Blackburn, Bo, Caleb Yates, Kevin, Jimmy Parker, Brad Smith, and Spencer Long

Here's the alligator pictures! If you are familiar with the Mobile area, you've probably been here. It's the bay area, on the other side of the bridge not the Mobile side.

My Baby Turns 2!

I have finally gotten my computer back!! (long birthday post)

Brayden turned 2 on the 18th of May! I can't believe 2 years have gone by since this little boy came into this world! It seems like yesterday! He is talking in complete sentences for the most part and we can understand just about everything he tries to tell us. Last night bo was counting with him to 10 and when Bo got to 5, brayden just finished it off saying six, even , eight, nine, ten, YAY!! It was so funny! I say once again he is at my favorite stage, but they ALL have been my favorite!

Brayden weighs 28lbs (50%), 36 inches (95%). He's tall and skinny!

(B in his new sandbox with GREEN sand... he loves it)

We are working on the potty training, but he's still not ready just yet. We get up and go to the potty every morning now and a couple of times during the day and every night. I think it might be just seems like we are always on the go! If we stayed at home all week, we might accomplish it!

His favorite thing is still balls! He loves them. We try giving him trucks, but he doesn't play with them long and before we know he's got a ball in his hand. He loves to color, and play outside! We have already spent a lot of time outside playing this summer. Brayden and Wrigley have a good time!

We had B's party at Jumpin G's the Saturday before his actual birthday. He and all of his friends had a blast! It was a Mickey Mouse theme... we played and ate hotdogs and cake!

Monday was his actual birthday and he had a little party at school (I made baseball cupcakes for his class, since they all know he loves balls)

Lots to post

We are still alive! I have lots to post! Our computer is down and has been for the past week! I'm actually typing this from my phone right now. Little brayden turned 2 last Monday and I didn't get to post, but I will as soon as the computer is fixed! He is talking so much now and we can actually understand him for the most part! We are enjoying every minute of him! More to come soon!!

Easter 2009

I didn't get any family pics this year, just ones of Brayden before he changed. Sunday morning I left for church early and left Bo in charge of getting Brayden ready. I left two outfits out for him to pick from and he came to church in this. I thought Bo did pretty good dressing the kid. These were taken after church.

We had a very nice Easter. We got to spend Sunday afternoon with family at my grandparents house. My grandmother suffered from a stroke about 2 months ago and has been doing really well over the last couple of weeks. After we got through eating lunch, Sunday, she fell and broke her hip. My mom and my aunt took her to Tupelo and she had surgery Monday night. She is doing good and will get to come home on Thursday or Friday. We did get a little egg hunt in for the kids at my grandparents.

The Easter Bunny Came!

The Easter Bunny stopped by our house Saturday night! Brayden had so much fun going through his basket of goodies!

Play Ball!

Brayden playing ball. His favorite thing to do!

Here's a video of him hitting the ball off the tee. He's pretty good at it! His daddy works with him a lot! We are ready for it to warm up again to play outside, before he hits some of mommy's nice things!
