This Easter was extra special because Nora decided months ago that she wanted to wear mother/daughter matching dresses. The guys get matching bow ties, and she wanted in on the fun. At first I had mixed feelings about it honestly, but her excitement and joy about it was contagious. She loved picking them out, trying them on and we even wore matching lip gloss. It became my new favorite Easter memory!
Meme and Mammers got in on the color scheme!
Hallie and Nora decorated the Bunny cake
Look at this little man. I could eat him up he looked so handsome!
After a great church service, we went to the Country Club for Brunch with Meme and Grandpa and the Vaughts and then to Mammers house for an egg hunt, and continue the piñata tradition.
Spring break has been a busy, but great week! I've loved having such great time with all 3 kids together, made wonderful memories, and had great times with friends. DF moved downstairs and made the guest room his room this week. It's just downstairs but that first night I felt like he went to college almost! He's so happy and did great!
It's also crazy Easter falls this week. We went to the farm and stayed there the first few days of the week.
Hudson spent the night with us at the farm one night which was a first!
Then Kim and I loaded up the kids for a one night trip to Memphis. We barely found a vehicle to fit us all in but we did it!
We went to Beale street for lunch and that was an experience (a very different place during the day than at night- thankfully!)
They loved the Children's museum and shut the place down. We did it all and they still were not ready to leave... Seriously the last car to pull out and they were not slowing down a bit. Thankfully we had an indoor pool at our hotel so there was more fun to be had!
Got a fresh new carpet burn boo boo 😔
Photo booths are always fun.
Next stop, the zoo!
Nora rarely has a girl to play with, she is surrounded by mostly boys with our family friends so this was a big treat getting to be with AK!
Even the mommas got in on the face painting.
Saturday was the Egg Hunt at HSCC
Daddy took this one to hunt and they, I mean Isaac found the prize egg!!
We met the Greens and Choates for family golf and they came over for pizza afterwards.
DF has only had 2 guitar lessons this far, yet he decided to play a show for us. :)
Then we went to some friends farm this afternoon. They had a huge egg hunt and hid 1,000 eggs. Kids had a blast!
This morning Nora and I ran together in the second annual I ❤️ LK 5K. DF Fran it too but was ahead of us with Ashton. Nora and I walked a lot, and she even got a piggy back ride or two but we had fun and she did great!
Marci and I took the kids on a road trip to Fayetteville while the daddies are away on a fishing trip. We stopped by a baseball game, went to drive thru safari zoo, went to The (fantastic) Amazeum and had fun with friends in Fayetteville! We also got to swing by and see Pops, Lelly and Jack! Fun fun weekend. Marci named us "the fun moms" 😊
I am Amanda and I love being a wife and mother. I have the family of my dreams! Motherhood is the most fulfilling, exhausting, rewarding, difficult, fun, and important calling on my life right now. Franklin and I have been married for over 9 years and I am lucky I get to live life with such a great husband and father. We are the proud parents of David Franklin, Nora and Isaac. We have a puppy, Maple, who has added lots of energy to the house! ;) We love to travel, spend lots of time with family and friends and really appreciate all of our blessings in life! This blog is an online journal, scrapbook/ baby book for our growing, busy, wild, little family. If you are looking for grammatically correct, politically correct, stimulating information on current events, I am sorry I can't provide that for you here, but I can tell you what my children are up to and how they are growing on a semi-regular basis. That is in between changing diapers, kissing boo boos, and pouring the chocolate milk!
