My life is blessed with the 2 most amazing little boys, Maddox and Mason, which have inspired this blog. I hope through the love and craziness of our family, I can give each person who reads this something to smile about! God Bless!

Quick Stop in McRae

When we left the beach on Saturday, we headed to Jerrod's parents' house in McRae, GA. It has been a while since we have been down to visit them and a much needed stop. It was a quick visit, but I am glad we got to see them. Maddox always has such a great time there. Since he loves the outdoors so much, this is heaven to him. Horses, sheep, pigs, ducks, chickens, dogs, oh my! Mason gets lots of love and attention and Maddox helps Pa around the farm.

Maddox helping Pa get the animals water. Maddox saw him doing it and ran over to him and said, "Pa, I hold it." So cute!

Mason got so comfortable with Pa that he fell asleep.

Maddox hanging out with Pa.

Mason and Ma laughing and carrying on a conversation.

Maddox riding Red. He got to see his pony Marty too. He has talked about the horses since we left.

Maddox loves to get in the chicken pen and help Pa gather up the eggs. He likes to chase the poor chickens too. Haha!

Weather is Nice, Wish You Were Here!

We had a fabulous beach vacation this past week. We packed up the truck and camper and headed to St. Andrews State Park at Panama City Beach! I was unsure how it would be with both Maddox and Mason, especially with Mason being so little, but it was perfect. We had the best place to stay, both kids loved the beach and ocean, Nana and PeePaw were with us most of the week and everyone had a blast! Maddox turned 2 while we were there and Mason 4 months. Crazy! Me and my obsessed picture taking self ended up with over 500 pictures from the trip. Insane I know, but I love taking pictures and capturing memories. So, needless to say, this is just a sample of what was taken! (Even though it is more than I normally post) Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed our vacation!

The view we woke up to Monday, July 20!

Maddox helping PeePaw push the wagon to the beach. So cute!

He was SO excited!

I loved Mason's surfer shirts, board shorts and hats. What a cutie!

He loved the water!

Mason loves his Nana.

I think Maddox ate as much sand as he did lunch everyday! He could have cared less.

Monday night at Pier Park . . . too cute!

He loved being thrown in the air. He wore me out. Maddox called it 1-2-3 because he would count each time.

Look at that smile.

We cannot wait to go back again next year! What fun it will be with both boys running around by then. We are so blessed!
