When you request a cast net and a crab trap for your birthday instead of a bike or video game when you're only 5...you've got salt water in your veins.

So I have this insanely large garden that I have worked so hard on at our house. It's done really well and I've even been able to give Mom and Larry a lot of vegetables from it.
LOL! Everyone who knows us knows that Larry has an insanely large garden that he has worked so hard on that I like to take credit for. Credit that I am not due whatsoever. Although I was very specific in what I wanted him to plant in the garden. I also have walked out there once or twice to admire it. I have not however gotten anywhere near the actual plants or dirt. I mean because it is 100 degrees outside and I hate being hot. :)
Larry has done an amazing job on his garden and he is very proud of it. It literally has every vegetable imaginable in it. Sunday after church all of our sides were composed from items from the garden.
Why yes, I assure you Ryleigh does have on shorts. Being 6 years old and wearing a size 3T with legs that go for miles makes it hard to find shorts that are long. Thankfully she doesn't wear shorts when we go off or people would think I was a terrible parent!

Our Mother's Day started out bright and early with breakfast at The Spot of Tea . We took Ryan's mom there and met his brother and his family there.

You will never believe what Whitney and I found at Moms...the ORIGINAL Nintendo.
We were pretty pumped about it! Of course we opted to play the original Mario and laughed our heads off the whole time!
First we had to clean the disk. (I know it's not technically a disk but I couldn't think of another word to use instead of disk...anyone have one?) You are officially considered old if you remember having to blow into the game to clean it out.

Last week was Teacher Appreciation at Turner. We Love Mrs. Cooper and loved getting to show her how thankful we are for everything she does for our sweet girl.
Ryleigh wanted to make her a card and took this to her room and did it COMPLETELY by herself, no help at all. I laughed forever when I saw how she spelled appreciate. She is very good at sounding out words and spelled it exactly how it sounded, lol!
Thank you Mrs. Cooper, We APREESHATE you!!

Just realized I never posted these pictures from Ryan's family reunion a few weekends ago. We always have the best time when we go! The kids love playing with the crawfish and Tanner actually brought 2 all the way back to Mobile with us! We look forward to going to it every year. This year it was a quick trip where we went and came back all in the same day since Whitney's race was the next day.
We have been so busy lately. Soccer is now in full swing and thankfully Tball is coming to an end. This part of the year is the busiest time for us. Ryan goes to tball practice and I go to soccer and we meet up at home around 7 or 7:30. Ryleigh and Tanner are excited that school is coming to an end. They have 3 weeks left and to them it couldn't get here fast enough. They have a few VBS's scheduled for Summer along with swim lessons and few other fun things to keep them busy. The other morning I was waking Ryleigh up in the morning and I said "You are the most beautiful girl in the whole wide world!" I say this all the time to her in the same sing song voice and she always smiles. This time I said, "How in the world did you get to be the prettiest girl in the whole wide world?" She responded, " Because I come from the most beautiful Mom in the whole wide world!" I promise I didn't pay her to say that, lol! The next morning I was waking Tanner up and when I was trying to get him up he said, "I want to take a nap!" I said you've been asleep all night and he said that's not the same as taking a nap! This weekend I'm co-hosting a baby shower for my friend Katrina and baby Grayson. I can't wait for it to come so I can post pictures of all the cute things we've done for it. It's nautical themed and so cute! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
