Sock Monkey House Shoes go with everything right?

Let me start with Happy Birthday Mike!

Last night after bath, this sweetie insisted on putting on her house shoes!  And then was devastated when we had to take them off to put on pj's.
See that full belly!  She ate a ton for dinner last night, not necessarily at the table but mostly on the run.  We did discover she's a huge ketchup fan.  We started dipping her chicken strips in it and then she decided, forget the chicken!  And started eating the ketchup with a spoon.  Reminds me of her cousin Lilly and stories I've heard about Uncle Matt when he was little.

Trying to get her to stay still for a pic is very hard these days, hence Daddy holding her :)

So this morning, when it was time to get shoes on she picked up her house shoes.  She hasn't been picking out her own clothes and shoes yet but we may be there...

Since they really only wear shoes for a tiny part of the day, we decided to let her go to school in them.  Not sure if she thinks they're tennis shoes because after she put them on last night she was running around the kitchen, as to say these are my fast shoes!

Saturday Fun with the Fam

We started off the day with breakfast at Corner Bakery and a trip to Lowes.  Bre loves helping push the cart.  And as you can see she really gets into it :)

Then we went swimming and Bre tried out some floating.  We also did some sliding and boat rides but I didn't get any pictures of that.  Parker had left his float at our house and it worked great on Bre. It's on the list to pick her up one next time we're at Target or Walmart.

She kept trying it but couldn't ever really relax while she was laying back.

After we got in from swimming we didn't make it all the way back into clothes before she was off playing and wanted to wear her hat.

The Trumbo's and little Trevor have been on our minds all day.  We having been praying for them and thinking of them constantly.  Please pray for his surgery Monday morning, that the part mass/ part cyst will be benign and for the doctors performing the surgery. 

Also today, the 12 year old team, EM Majors, that Chad helps coach won the championship game in the Little League World Series!!!  The game was on ESPN3 ! Congrats guys!!

Fun at GG & Poppy's

She was making the rounds at GG & Poppy's
Running around in circles & back and forth from the play room to the kitchen and everywhere else
just a gigglin' & squealing!

Here she is mid-run, happy as a clam :)

Love those huge smiles

and blue eyes!

She stops just long enough to bat the balloons (or balls she calls them) around for a minute...

and then she's off again!  Little energizer bunny!

Sneaking up on Poppy, probably trying to get his hat, phone or remote

Love being around all the family when we're in Arkansas and spending time with this special lady is such a treat!  Gram was finally able to get her to sit in her lap & play the animal sound game on my phone.

Gram will be 90 this October!  I love this picture!  Can't believe we're all 3 looking at the camera!

Gram was amazed at the things on phones these days

Uncle Chad had been at a baseball tournament all weekend in Gulf Shores and got back late Sunday night so we hung around to see him. 

Playing with Poppy's hat...she's always taking it off and putting it back on and so forth. 
It was such a great weekend, love spending time with family!  It's always hard to leave, wish we lived closer!

More 4th of July!

Such a fun filled weekend!  Here we are visiting MamMa...the kiddos running back and forth between MamMa, the fish tank & the birds.

Looking at the birds with Aunt Sara...Bre was Aunt Sara's buddy, loving on her all weekend!

BreBre showing MamMa her "hair in the face trick"...she spins her head back & forth so that her hair brushes her face.  Must feel good & be fun to do because she does it often!

Playing Peek-a-Boo with MamMa

There's BreBre!

Bunch of little monkeys...

Loving on Daddy

Sara mentioned that we ought to let the boys take over the cameras, so we could get in a few pics.

So Matt & Bert took over and starting shooting away...just hard to know which one to look at when, so not sure we got one with everybody looking at the same camera, so I decided to put them all on here :)

Here's a cute one of Lilly!  Big Cheese on this one!

Here's another one of those crazy motion pictures, love it! 
I wish I knew why these were coming up, can't really take credit but I'll have to figure it out.
We had a fun filled day of breakfast with Pappaw, late morning visit with MamMa, fun swimming & lunch, then after a nap we went out to see PaPa.  He has recently started some rehab and is making great progress!  They're hoping to have him back home after the end of the summer.

We had story time

and snacks

just a good visit!

These two share the same birthday, love these two so much!

Before we left town, I had copies made of our visit sent into Walmart and Mom took them out to him the next day.  PaPa says that they're causing quite a stir!

She spotted PaPa's balloons and had fun batting them around

PaPa getting in on the action

He sent us home with the balloons since he'd had them for awhile and BreBre didn't mind they were starting to lose some air

Here we are Sunday at Mike & DeDe's...she can be pretty dramatic.  Not sure what this break down was about...

Getting up close to check things out, curious one we've got here

Mommy's sweet little girl

Playing with Aunt Sara's phone, anytime she sees a phone or a remote she's got to play with it.  The girl loves buttons!  She frequently talks to Siri

Giving Reid sweet goodbye kisses :)

Pointing to Aunt Sara's eyes but ended up being more of an eye poking, sorry about that!

Sweet hugs for Aunt Sara :)  This girl is a good hugger!

and more kisses for Reid, not sure he was ready for all the goodbye lovin' he was getting.  We're looking forward to seeing these guys in Texas in a couple of weeks!
