Happy Father's Day!!!

What Makes A Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,

The majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,

The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,

The comforting arm of night,

The wisdom of the ages,

The power of the eagles flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,

The faith of a mustard seed,

The patience of eternity,

The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,

When there was nothing more to add,

He knew his masterpiece was complete,

And so,

He called it … Dad

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there! I am especially thankful for my husband who is an amazing father to our kids. Michael, your heart for your children and your family continues to amaze me. You love us unconditionally and support us in everything we do. Thank you for always being there. I love you!

And to my dad, who I cherish, Happy Father's Day! You helped to form me into the person I am today. You taught me so many valuable lessons that have helped me raise my own children. You are the most kind-hearted and generous man I know and one of the greatest honors of my life is to be able to call you daddy. I love you!


"I Refuse"

This pretty much sums up how I'm feeling lately......


Lazy Days at the Coast !

After all the hustle and bustle of the school year, we couldn't wait to get to the beach as soon as Zoee was out of school. We went down for about 10 days and did absolutely NOTHING..... and it was WONDERFUL!!! Here are a few pics from the trip.....

Our transportation for the week... the golf cart! Why is it SO hard to get them to open their eyes?!?

We just had to spend a little time at the arcade!!

Grayden & Zoee had a great time digging in the sand and trying to catch little hermit crabs!

Zoee trying her hand at photography to get a pic of mom and dad!

Coming down the giant Hippo Slide.... mom was perfectly happy to sit this one out and just take the pics!!!

And a last minute visit from cousin Claudia made a perfect ending to the vacation!
**We missed you John Tucker and Ella!**
