Well, I can really tell that school is back into full swing...this blog needs updating, I am tweeting less, dishes are left in the sink, clothes need to be washed, and my energy is lacking. I am hoping to get caught up this weekend, but I am sure other things will take first priority. Just be patient with me....I promise to update soon! For now, I am off to watch Pinky Dinky Doo w/ Mackaylan.... Later! :)

Gatlinburg, TN

This past weekend, Mickey, Mackaylan and I headed up to Gatlinburg, TN for one last "shebang" before school starts back. We were fortunate to be able to enjoy this mini-vacation with my sis and her family. We had a great time playing putt-putt, riding rides, tubing, going to Dixie Stampede, riding the Sky Lift, and much more...

Head on over to Show Me the Way for a wonderful 200th post giveaway! Like most of us "novice" bloggers, Dawn's site is full of insights, family happenings, and even a few random thoughts! Trust me, it will be worth your visit! And just in case you were wondering...I realize it is not Halloween, but I just love this picture of the two of us and the kiddos!

Carl Sandburg Home

A few weeks ago Mackaylan and I visited The Carl Sandburg Home in Flat Rock, NC with our summer Mommy & Me group. We had a fun time hiking to the house and touring the barn and garden area. If you are planning on going in the near future be sure to wear your tennis shoes. Some of our group members found out the hard way that it is not easy to hike in sandals! Here are a few pics from our visit:


It's a bloggy makeover! I am so excited that I finally figured out how to add a new background and header. It was so easy and there were so many choice to choose from. Now, I just need to work on adding a little more "flavor" to the header/title. Maybe pics/fun font/etc. I want it to be a little more catchy. Stay tuned...

Christie's Visit

I can't believe it has been a month since Christie, Baylee and Brayden came to visit. We had a great time catching up on life and enjoying the kiddos. While they were in town we visited a few local parks, Shipwreck Cove and Hollywild Zoo. Mackaylan and Baylee spent lots of time playing outside, dressing up, giggling and playing with Owen! I can only imagine all of the fun we are going to have once Brayden and Lanie are able to get around and join in the fun! I am so thankful for my friendship with Christie. It's the kind of friendship where we can go months without seeing each other yet we always pick up right where we left off!
