"Papa, Is there really a CandyLand?"

So, we were driving to Pickwick Lake last Thursday and drive past this.
The boys imaginations went wild....and we didn't interfere.
So, on the way back to Fairhope on Tuesday we were planning out how to strap the marshmallows to the car. Maybe taking a little bite if it was too heavy to carry. Then they started thinking that this was the entrance to CandyLand. They were really into it and so were WE!
So we pulled over, without a plan on how NOT to spoil the fun.....it turned out none of the CandyLand people were home ALSO being that there were sticker bushes, a small ditch & a fence....MAYBE this wasn't the way to get in. They got back into the car a little bummed.
THEN, as we drove off ~ we looked over the far far back trees & saw the tip top of the candy castle. WOW!

The Summer time pace.

              photo by: Kate Mercer
Seems like I summertime should have a slower pace than what has been going on with us lately. Does it seem like your day takes on a life of its own sometimes? mine does.
I think I might try staying home all day today....sounds like an easy thing huh? 
It seems like we have to keep them busy.  There are SO many wonderful activities offered and geared towards kids that it can fill your week quickly. Well, I really think playing in the backyard & running around the block, riding bikes is what we are up to today...yeah!

My sweet angel.

Samuel...you are such a beautiful child. I love holding you. You are a strong-willed baby mixed nicely with a large dose gentle and calmness. You bring so much joy to all of us.

Wiggin Out!

Need an idea for a fun birthday???
Do a wiggin out party, everyone will need to bring a wig and some confidence. It was so much fun! Susie maybe we can do it every year?

Friends, Food and music

our friends are great. Having fun times with the kids, everyone brings some good food, and afterwards lets sing & play music.
