34/52; Gorgeous Morning

It's been seriously HOT around here lately! Last week & weekend brought the hottest days of the year. Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised when I took the dogs out & almost needed a sweater, lol... It was a breezy 70 something degrees. I couldn't help but get the boys dressed quickly & get them to the playground to enjoy the weather!

12 Weeks In; It's A House!

After getting a text message Monday with the photo of the framing of the house going up I was incredibly anxious to see the house again. I couldn't hold out until Saturday, the boys & I snuck down to sneak a peek of the house on Thursday. This is what we saw...




After we saw the house we went out to Amelia Island to check out the playgrounds & beaches, the boys approved!

We headed back down yesterday with Donna this time. The house is completely framed up & even has tar paper on the roof. The contractor said they have a little bit to finish on Monday & the plumbers showed up while we were there to connect the plumbing from the street (city) to the house.

It was a very exciting week watching the house actually go up. The boys even ask to go see the new house now. They tell random people they are building a new house when we are out. It's really cute & I can't wait to see how excited they are when the house is done & we get to move in!

Happy Birthday Papa!

This past weekend was my bonus dads 68th birthday. My sister & her family came up for the weekend & the boys & I went out to spend the day & celebrate his big day. Donna was unfortunately home with the stomach bug Caden & I had earlier in the week.

We weren't there but a minute before the kids all wanted to play in the pool. While they splashed around we got out the slip-n-slide to try out for the first time. None of the kids really grasped the concept of running & sliding so Uncle Steven helped them out...

It's Kellan first, then Caden, Chandler & Garren

After Uncle Steven got his workout in for the day, everyone was ready to go inside & eat.
The kids all played some more inside after eating. We sang Happy Birthday & had some 'Happy Birthday Cake' as the boys called it & then gave Papa his gift from all the grand-kids.

We stayed until Chandler & the boys could hardly maintain themselves anymore & then I decided to head home. The boys passed out in the backseat of the car & I'm sure Chandler had a good nap too.

It was a nice day & great that we could all get together to celebrate.

11 Weeks In; Howdy Neighbor

We headed down to check out the progress on our house Friday, a day too soon once again. There was a lot more building material on site, it looked like basically everything to frame up the house. The house next door was up & looking good so we guessed this coming week ours would go up.

While we were there we did meet the building 'super' The guy in charge of getting all the houses built :) We also met our neighbors to the left. They seem like a nice motorcycle riding couple. Donna will cry a little every time she hears them come home, poor thing (she sold her bike when we got pregnant) they don't have any young kids but told us all about everyone on the street that did. I'm excited for the boys to have little neighborhood friends & there seems to be a few right about their age close by :)







We got a text from the sales guy Monday that framing had begun! :)


We are super excited to see what the house looks like this weekend!!!
