A springtime visit from Pappy

We love visits from my dad who lives in Nashville. This was a very special visit though, because while he was here, we took the training wheels off of Finn's bike and taught him to ride! After only a few tries, he was off all by himself. We were all incredibly proud!


Now that Finn is done with his Strider bike, we're getting Will on it. He wasn't too convinced!


An early morning bonding session :)
One of the serious perks of having Pappy visit is that we get to sleep in.

Little dubs

Our boys are starting to become buddies, which is really too fun to watch. We love that they are starting to play together and entertain each other.



Some days I think my heart will just bust wide open.

I'm a lucky mama to have these two sweet boys!
Mike and the kiddos helped me plant flowers - very fun!

OBX Vacation

"What!?" you say. "You guys went on ANOTHER vacation?"

That's right! We are some seriously lucky dubs!

This time we went to the outer banks of North Carolina with our fabulous friends, Lucia and Brad. We were so grateful to stay with them at their house that was smack dab on the beach.


Finn and Will didn't let the 55 degree water hold them back - they had such a fun time running in and out of the waves.

Of course, Will needed a little more help - although he made it clear that he wanted to do it all by himself!

Will also occupied himself by digging holes in the sand...

...and making very important proclamations about the ocean.

Finn was a sand castle phenom
