Virginia Aquarium 2010

Grace loved the aquarium last year when we took her so we decided to go back. Even Reese

enjoyed the fish, sharks, and other marine life!

5 months (almost 6)

So I have been slacking in the blogging world. Reese is only going to be a 5 months old for a few more days. The days and months keep going by faster and faster.

Some highlights this month for Reese: gaining weight at a rapid pace (almost 17 lbs, 26 inches long), lots of new noises (the best is her chewbaka noise), lots and lots of big smiles, all good reports at dr's appts (still have to re-do blood platelet count the end of April so pray that goes well), and doing some great things in therapy! Here are some of my favorite pics of her at 5 months old!

Spring is in the Air!!!

It is in the low 70's here today!! Finally after a winter that seemed would never end! We just had to get the kids out of the house to enjoy it! So we met up with Uncle Andy, Uncle Jeremy, and Lauren to take the girls to 1st Landing park! It's a gorgeous park/hiking trail along the water with beautiful trees and spanish moss!
Here are some pics of our fun morning on the trails! Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Matt!

Yesterday my gorgeous hubby turned 31 years old. I remember meeting him shortly after his 24th birthday. We actually met when he and his buddies were out celebrating. Hard to believe that 7 years later we are happily married with two beautiful girls. God is good!

We have come a long way together as a couple but even more so Matt has come a long way and I am very proud of him!. I have watched Matt mature and become the man I knew he would become. He is ambitious, driven, hard-working, loving, funny, my best friend, amazing father, strikingly handsome, compassionate, giving, and my partner for life.

Happy Birthday Baby! I hope this is the best year yet. May God continue to bless you and keep you! We love you so much and are excited to grow older with you!

the salt and pepper look is very distinguished looking! ;)

Girl's Night!

We recently had a girls night to celebrate Lauren's 21st birthday. We got dressed up, did each other's hair and makeup, had some celebratory drinks and went to downtown Norfolk to Time Lounge. Now it's been a while since I've had a night out and after this night I realize it will probably be my last. hahahaha! I'm about to be 32 and I'm just not built to stay out late and deal with a bunch of crazy drunken people.

Thankfully it ended up being low key and us girls were able to hang out most of the night without being approached by some young sailors. Notice how I said '"most". We did a have a group of nice guys sitting next to us but as soon as they saw wedding rings on 3 out of the 4 of us they weren't interested in chatting anymore. All except one nice young guy. We got into talking about radio and broadcasting job ( I use to produce for a woman's talk show and Natalia is on the radio) he does on his ship. He was a baby..21 and what we thought was a pretty nice guy. Well as the night went on it became apparent he was hitting on me! yes, me! Can you believe it...!! I guess I still got it! hahahh! JK! After that realization we decided to make our way out to the very empty dance floor and then called it a night. I am just not as young as I use to be!

Over all it was fun to get out with the girls. However, I do feel as if those days have come and gone and I really don't care if I ever step foot into another club again!

Here are some pics of us before we headed out! Hope you had a wonderful birthday night out Lauren!!

The guys stayed in with the kids and played some poker!
