Memorial Day fun in Huntsville

We had a great time visiting my parents this weekend in Huntsville! Audrey, James, and Courtney came over for a visit too!! Despite the threatening rain all weekend, we were able to sneak in some outdoor time-a Hot Air Balloon Festival, walking around the outdoor mall, visiting the city park, running a race, and just hanging out!! On Monday morning, James, Kendall, and myself ran in the Cotton Row Run. James and Kendall ran the 10k (6.2 miles) and I ran the 5k (3.1 miles)! The run felt good, but it showed me how out of shape I really am and how much I need to train in order to run the Peachtree (1ok) in July!! The weekend was a lot of fun-having some good hang out time with the family! Hope you enjoy the pictures from the weekend!

Marlee is not quite sure if Daddy's hat will keep her dry from the rain!

We went into Old Navy and Marlee soon discovered her favorite animal-a dog! She loved sitting on the doggie and then later playing and looking out the window!

Just hanging out with Daddy and Courtney!

Biker Babes! Actually, the girls are sitting on my dad's scooter!

Family Time

Kendall and I decided that Friday nights are going to be family nights! If we don't have anything else going on (i.e. softball), then we're going to make it our family night to go up to the Marietta Square! Especially in the summertime, it's going to be so much fun for Marlee to walk around, play on the playground, and to enjoy the beautiful weather! We went up this past Friday and had a great time! Kendall's mom (grandmommy) even met us up there!

Mommy's Day~#2!!

Yesterday was Mother's Day, and for me, it was my second Mother's Day! Kendall and I were remembering last year's Mother's Day-Marlee was only 3 weeks old and was so tiny! That Sunday was also Baby Dedication Sunday at our church, and we had Marlee dedicated! What a special day it was! This year was no different! We went to church where they had baby dedication again. Afterwards, we went home and rested for a little bit before heading to my soccer game. I wish we would've won, but we lost. Then we headed over to Longhorn's for dinner with Kendall's mom, Charter, and Leigh. It was a great Mother's Day~and Marlee even surprised me with a giftcard to Natural Body &Spa! What fun!


Marlee loves to try to put on mommy's sunglasses, so I thought I'd let her wear her own pair that's more of her size!!! Too cool!!!

Splish Splash!

One of the gifts Marlee recieved for her birthday was a water table!! I've been waiting for the weather to warm up so I could set it up outside for the girls to play in! Finally today, the weather cleared so the girls had a chance to play in the water! When I first filled up the table with water from the hose, it was a little chilly, so I ran upstairs and filled up a bucket of warm water from the shower and poured that water into the water table! Much better! The girls had a lot of fun splashing (and drinking) the water! They both looked so cute in their swim suits and water shoes! We are really looking forward to the warmer weather and playing in the water table some more!
