Mid-June Catch Up

Since my last post, I have had a yard sale to rid my house of a lot of junk that needed to go and only packed up about 3 boxes for a Fall yard sale. Everything else was donated to a women and children's shelter thrift store.

Life has also included VBS at church. This was Gregory's 3rd VBS, but the first one that he actually made it all the way through and by himself too! I was one proud momma. :)

We also recently went to summer camp, which my little guy loves. He swam every single day, all day long and is starting to put his head underwater himself. After being Mr. Independent eon the first day, he found that walking around the huge campus was tiring, so he voluntarily began climbing in the stroller. I am beginning to realize just how big he is when he sits in the UppaBaby Vista as his head has reached the top of the back. It really is a sad moment.

This weekend, our little guy turned 4 years old! We had a birthday party for him at The Little Gym.
 
He absolutely loved being able to climb and jump and run. It was so easy to pay for someone else to do the party, that it might become a tradition in our house. We went to O'Charley's with some of the grandparents that night to celebrate his birthday.
 
Sunday was Father's Day, and we spent part of it at the hospital with Jay's dad. He was finishing a week in the hospital to figure out a pain management plan for his terminal cancer. They started radiation too. It is going to be a hard year.
 
Lastly, I finally got to work in the office this week before heading out again this weekend and next week. I even got to take a painting class and I think I have found a new hobby! Stay tuned!

Family Beach Portraits

I was thinking about our upcoming beach trip next month and thought about how much I would love to have a new family beach portrait to put on canvas like my other one from when Gregory was 1 year old.

I knew I didn't have any white shirts for Gregory or I anymore so I went in search of an alternative. Knowing it had to be affordable, I hopped over to Walmart.com and found this cute denim dress for around $9 and the two layer shirt for Gregory also for around $9-10. I hope that they both fit when they come in! I mean, how cute would this family look be??
