Going on a hike.

We packed up and headed down the road to Lake Waccamaw to hike in the park.  It was a lot of fun!  Colin loved being in the backpack!

Colin's favorite book is "Barnyard Dance"... I have it memorized.

June 24

All of us.

This was the best picture we got of all of us!  At least the top of Colin's head made it in!

Hanging with Uncle Eric.
We had lots of people over last night for dinner... but it was nice to steal away some time with my brother.  He and Colin are so cute together!
And Colin turned 9 months today! 

June 22

Riding the truck.

Colin had a blast riding on this truck - especially when someone would push him around!

June 21


Colin and I were invited to be a part of a play group here in Whiteville.  This morning we ventured out to hang with all the other kids and parents.  Colin had a good time, once he got over the amount of kids that were there.  He sat and stared at everything going on for the first 10 minutes!  There were at least 30 kids there!

Sweet Suzi.

This purple ball has lasted Suzi for... at least a year and a half now!  That's a big deal!  She looooves this ball!  Whenever she has it she turns into a puppy again - running, jumping, pawing at it, it is really cute!  She doesn't get this ball all the time, but she needed some special attention today, so she got to play with it for a long time this afternoon =)

Happy Father's Day.

Colin and I are so blessed to have this amazing guy in our lives! 
We had a fun day: presents, went on a walk, church, pool, grilled out, and made homemade cookies!

June 18


Colin is officially on the go!  He army crawls everywhere!  And he pulls up on anything that you place in front of him.

June 17

Helping daddy.

Colin got to help with mowing the grass (not really, but he had fun pretending)

June 16

So fun.

Can't you just hear him squealing?!

June 15

Lowering the crib.

We decided to lower Colin's crib since he is pulling up on everything lately!  And good thing we did - yesterday he figured out how to go from laying on his tummy to sitting up!  Oh man, there is no sitting in one place now!

Uncle Eric.
It was sooo great to hang out with Eric and Kailey!!  Colin had fun with his uncle!

June 12

Nap time.

I think we may have finally got this nap thing down!
Colin was catching a quick nap before we headed to Eric and Kailey's!!  Eric leaves in less than a month for Afghanistan.... we are going to soak up as much of him as we can before he leaves!

Playing after the pool.

We lathered on the sunscreen and headed to the pool this afternoon.  I am so glad Colin likes the water!  It was a lot of fun!

Do I have something on my face.

Garet was feeding Colin tonight and Colin moved his head real fast... which caused a little bit of food to get on his right cheek.  I went to grab my camera and came back to this!  (Garet may or may not have assisted in the rest food on his face!)

June 9

Playing with my toys.

We were playing this morning and Colin just couldn't get close enough to his toys... so I just put him right on top of some of them!

June 8


Garet put up Colin's swing in our backyard!  Colin loves it!

Sleeping on Daddy.

I was able to get away to the grocery store (alone!!), and this is what I came home to.  My sweet boy was so tired after playing with his daddy.... oh it just melts my heart!

June 6


Don't worry, this face didn't last long.  I think Colin is teething... you can see some of the drool here, and he has had some fussy moments lately.  He's got two teeth... we'll see if another pops through soon!
(This was hard for me to post!  He is such a happy baby - but I've had many people say "Does he ever cry, he always seems so happy!"  And trust me, I know I am blessed!  He is a happy baby, but yes we do see tears =)  So now I have a picture of them.)

June 5

Sunday evening.

This is how we spend most of our evenings.  Perfect.

Country boy.

We were all ready to go to a horse show!  There was an Appaloosa horse show down the road at Lake Waccamaw.  We had a lot of fun, and Colin got to meet his first horses!  (first of many I hope!)  =)

5 years.

Five years ago I married my best friend, my soul mate, my one and only.  It was such a beautiful day... we said "I do" on a beautiful day in Lake Lure in the mountains of North Carolina.  I am so blessed and thankful!
Happy Anniversary to us!! 

June 2

Jumping Beane.

A good way to keep him occupied (and in one spot!) while I get some work done in the kitchen!

June 1

New hat.

Am I the only one that thinks he is just the cutest?!?
Mom and I put this hat on him at the store and he wore it all the way to the car... then again once we got home. 

May 31

Where my dog at.

I traveled back to Charlotte to pick up Suzi.  She spent the long weekend with my parents while we were in Charleston.  It was sooo good to get her back =)
