These photos were taken at a restaurant that we have gone to annually since moving to KY when I was in 6th grade.
We go each year to celebrate my grandpa's birthday.
The belly photo is just funny to me because my mom had that umbrella and she looked at me and said "this matches you!".
Haha, so we took photos with it.

The second photo is also so funny and I love it!! Me with my parents, classic!

The third photo is of me with my lover man.
We haven't taken too many photos together lately and it was his idea to get in front of the camera together.
I don't know why but it literally made my heart happy to hear him ask for someone to take our picture.
It can be hard, when our world revolves around little people, to remember the sweetness that we have with each other.
It's hard to have date nights because we have chosen to only have family watch our kiddos and my parent's are the only ones who live close enough.
They are raising three grandchildren as well and so I hate to even ask them at times because they have their hands full already.
But!!!
In this moment I was reminded of the sweetness...
The tender love...
The romance.

And so, I am excited for our anniversary.
I am excited to reminisce with him and dream about the future.
I am excited for a quiet moment with just the two of us, because he is my favorite!!

Here's to 6 years!!!

Apple Orchard Fun!

This year we were able to go to Evan's Orchard with all of our Kentucky family and it was such a treat!
The boys had a blast with their cousins/siblings!!
I just wanted to share a few, okay maybe a TON of photos from the weekend fun.



Family time=the BEST time.

Things not pictured that we thoroughly enjoyed: sliced caramel appels, fresh kettle corn, hot dogs, apple cider, and apple cider donuts!!! We love coming here every year!!

What are some of your family fall traditions?

Sailor's 3rd Birthday, Monster's Inc. style...

I will be the first to tell you that I am not big on themes, but I decided to go with one for Sailor because he is currently in love with all things monsters, dragons, trucks, etc...
You know, boy things :] .
I went with Monster's Inc/Monster's University since it is one of his favorites at the moment.
Walmart had a great selection to choose from as well so it made it easy to pull off!

Here are some photos from the party.
The kid had a blast and loved having all of the family over to celebrate.
What a blessing and joy he is to our lives.
He has changed it forever and I pray we serve him and love him well according to the grace of God.
We love you Sailor and pray the Lord Jesus Christ will bless you and keep you all of your days.


















































Everyone had fun, ate lots of food and cake, and then we ended the night with Sailor's new movie "How to Train Your Dragon".
I love having children and I love planning their parties!!
It is so fun to watch them light up with excitement realizing they are being celebrated.
