St. George Island

Here are some pictures of our vacation. I was having too much fun to take many pictures but am thankful for the ones I was able to get.

Here is how day one started out. Braden took a small spill into the coffee table below. Of course he had to hit it right on the sharp corner. It looked awful, but could have been much worse.
Notice those sharp corners! Round coffee tables are much more kid friendly!

Bath time! Our bathroom had these glass doors instead of a shower curtain. It was so hard to catch Braden to bathe him so we took turns getting in the tub with him.

Let me out!

Sweet Abbey

Katie getting hooked on Twilight! :)

Just chillin' in his little chair, snack in hand of course!

Braden was not a fan of the sand or ocean really so he hung out in this little pool under our tent.

Mama's turn in the tub! He makes me laugh.

We are such tourists!

One happy family!

My boys! I'm in love!

The yearly beach photo.

Gosh, I love them!

Sweet baby footprints.

Who can resist this face?

Kissing cousins

Yay for the beach!

All the cousins!

A Day in the Life

Here is a glimpse of what Braden and I do during the day:
A little cleaning. He is just so helpful!

Then it's time for exercise!
So strong!

After a nap we play outside.

As you can see we also have a snack!

Sometimes I forget we should eat snacks outside or in the highchair.

Sometimes Braden watches a show while I cook dinner. Isn't this chair so cute? It was my sisters and mine when we were little.

But mostly he sits at your feet and fusses while you fix dinner. This particular day he was so impatient he decided to go ahead and put his bib on all by himself.

Like I said, he's just so helpful!

Then he puts the lens cap on the camera. I love those big brown eyes!

I pretty much have the best job in the world. I wouldn't trade all these little moments for anything!


Braden enjoyed his first trip to Dollywood on Saturday. We were only there a few hours but had so much fun! He loved every ride we went on. I would love to get season passes next year so we could go during all the seasons. A few degrees cooler would have been very nice! Here are a few pictures from either mine or Mackenzie's camera.

Holding on tight on the little piggies!
I sure looked squished in that little pig! Most kids ride alone, but my little daredevil would have been standing in his seat.

And of course, no long day away from home would be managable without LOTS of snacks! Braden even got to enjoy a frozen lemonade and a funnel cake! Those were my highlights as well.
