This past weekend, I traveled with the boys by myself to Swansboro. Not sure I considered all of the logistics of traveling that far by myself with two little ones. Such as: what do I do if I have to go to the bathroom and I dont have a double stroller? You hold it sister!...Yep my post baby bladder handled it like a champ.

Anyhow, I was traveling to attend Madi's (my best friend from high school) wedding reception. She was married on the 6th of May in beeeautiful Costa Rica and wanted to have a reception at her parents in Emerald Isle and it worked out that I was able to go. It was seriously a blast from the past but a great one none the less. I wasn't able to get any pictures at the reception since I was by myself and wasn't going to keep up with a camera, but I did get some pictures of the boys from the weekend.

Party time

Life has been crazy the past few weekends. My dad retired at the end of April, so my mom threw him a party May 8th and some of my aunts and uncles from Texas made the trip to treat dad to a Texas Barbeque:)! The food was absolutely amazing but I have to say that the company beat the food! My cousin Rey and his wife Diana are stationed at Fort Bragg so they were able to come too, along with their sweet little boy Jayden. There were 15 adults and 4 babies staying at my parents house that weekend! Good times!

Here is everyone on our last day together!

Mohawk. Compliments of uncle Joey

Wyatt and Great Grandma


He's learned how to smile for the camera. HAM.

Swagger Wagon

I just thought I would post this for all the mini van families out there. Craig and I have been opposed for a while but it just makes sense and is so practical. Maybe we'll be a swagger wagon family one day. For now, this video is hilarious.

West Family Update

First, Craig and I are celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary today:)! Second, I haven't been around the computer much these days other than to briefly check the email and check on money saving mom blogs. Things have been busy with the boys and moving. Yes, we have moved-back to Greensboro. This move has come with excitement because we are close, really close to our friends Gene and Loren and Craig doesnt have to travel 30 minutes to work, but sadness because we are away from the bulk of our church family, namely our mission group. We are still meeting in West Winston for the time until Craig turns over the reigns of leadership over to our friend Josh. This is a bittersweet time for us because we have grown quite close to our group in West Winston- but alas it is cool to see how God is changing and molding the hearts of all of his people at 1.21. Speirs is adjusting well to the move and big brotherhood and Wyatt is getting big! At his one month appointment he weighed 11 pounds 3 oz and was 22 and 1/4 inches long- which both are in the 75-90th percentile. He seems smaller than Speirs was despite being bigger at birth and at one month.

Well update time is over, Speirs is up from his nap. Hopefully I will be able to add pictures and write more later! Happy Wednesday!
