Went to the beach last week with our friends! Ashton was crackin' me up so I had to take some pictures!
Ash, lost his green ball, Greyson almost drowned (2 times), our beach umbrellas blew away (luckily the life guard saved them), fed the local ducks, first time Kiera was at the beach, first time Bryton wore her swimming suit, Payton and Rory floated on a stolen tube, and Jaxon....well he didn't lose his ear tubes!!!
The day was great, and my kids love having friends again! The miss their friends in Tennessee and Utah pretty bad. So I am glad they are not so glum these days, Especially Payton!

A few days ago I took the kids to the park. We met up with some of our new friends who happen to live within walking distance of the park. The little girl Rory brought her new Tinkerbell bike, which was a total hit with Ash. When it was time to go home I could not convince him to get off. I tried bribing him with a few things, nothing really worked, until....I told him that I would take his training wheels off his bike so he could ride his bike like Jaxon. "Like a big boy!" He loved that idea!
Here is the result his first time:
One proud Momma!

My little girls, I love them so much! When Austin and I had made the decision long ago that we were done having kids at 3, although I was extremely relieved I too had a little reservation because Payton wanted a sister so bad. All of her cousins have sisters and almost all of her friends had them too! Payton has always been a great big sister to her two twirppy brothers, but I couldn't ask for a bitter helper with her little sister. Bryton these days is not so mellow as she once was! Still adorable, and we get the biggest kick out of watching her. She is loved a little too much on a daily basis... the novelty of a little sister hasn't worn off yet. Austin has gone back to work, and with one thing on my mind these days Payton has been a huge help. I have lots of weight to lose. While I have been attempting to exercise while Bryton has been asleep, she still seems to wake up of it is too quiet. So Payton has been bringing her down to the basement with all of us and feeding, burping, rocking and playing with Bryton so I can get in shape!!! As they say in the South "BLESS HER LITTLE HEART" I couldn't be more grateful!!! She is my little helper and I love her so much! It kind of helps that she is so cute too:
Saturday we spent the day visiting another coastal town. Luddington! We took the kids to the city park there to play, and walked around one of the many marinas. Every Saturday that we have lived here, we have noticed no matter what town we are in you will always be able to find a Farmer's Market. We have a little training to do with Ashton and Jaxon, before we want to make that leap into hundreds of people plus, many breakable items. Maybe towards the end of the summer (fingers crossed) if not, next summer is what we will shoot for. Another gorgeous city on the coast of Lake Michigan!
