Busy Times

Finally we have had some nice weather and it has been much needed. We have been so busy the last couple weeks and I thought I would post some pics of our happenings. We have been dying to get out camping and thought we would take a quick trip up to Scout Mt. However, the road was still closed so we went out by the reservoir at a fun little campground that had a playground which Keyton loved.

This was right after I had pushed Keyton too high on the swing and he belly flopped out of the swing. Luckily he still has a smile on his face and he still loves me.
We also got to see some huge fish right off the dock which was exciting for Keyton. Then this weekend, my side of the family was up to see Harlee's dance recital and Keyton's last tee ball game. Keyton had quite the fan club for his last game. He was quite the show off for all of them..

He did so good and got 2 really good hits off the pitcher. I had to post this video of his hit but for some reason the color is all messed up.

Keyton's most favorite thing at his games is getting to slide home. You can't see it perfectly but it's the only one I got.

Each player got a cute trophy afte the game and Keyton just knew that his team was the "champions"

Then Saturday afternoon, Trevor's whole side of the family came up to see our Aunt Sherri and Sue. Keyton loves them soooo much. We went to dinner and the park together and Keyton enjoyed playing with his cousins.

So after seeing every single person in our family this weekend, and not having one minute to rest I think it is safe to say we were exhausted. Or at least I was. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love how close both of our families are. And one more pic I had to post that cracked me up. This is the one Keyton took of himself. He looks like a confused child. I can just hear him saying "how does this thing work?" Classic. (sorry for such a long post. Hope you enjoyed as much as I did)

Happy Mothers Day

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried..
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much...
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay..
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom .

May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there.

Picture Tag

I got tagged! Here's my picture named: Driving Time

Okay, so the actual picture I found was of Keyton running around the backyard chasing his girl cousins butt naked. I decided that was not an appropriate one to post so I had to go to my next folder. This is what Keyton likes to do when we are riding in the car. He will look at magazines all the way to Grandmas' houses. I think it's so cute. So here's what you do:

1. Go to your documents/pictures

2. Go to your sixth file

3. Go to your sixth picture

4. Post it and blog it

5. Tag six people to do the same

6. Name your picture

I tag: Andrea, Randee, Tessa, Sari, Chris, and Tricia but only if you want to!
