Have I told ya'll lately

how much I LOVE my husband...........
I'm sooo blessed. I thank GOD every single day for putting him in my life.

Our Week part 2

While Tripp and Christian were here they helped uncle Brandon plant our dogwood tree Brandon's parents gave us for Easter.
 Thanks Bonnie & Ronnie for our dogwood!! We love it!
 They also planted pumpkin seeds.
 These pumpkins aren't your ordinary pumpkins.
 It's common for these seeds to produce 400-500 pound pumpkins.
Looks like we won't need to buy pumpkins this year!! haha
 They also planted watermelon seeds. We love us some watermelon!!!
The next day we took the boys to see Rio.
They loved it! It's a really cute movie.

My dad drove down for a couple days to spend time with the boys.
We took the boys to Monkey Joes.

 They had alot of fun. Brandon and I wanted to slide down. (Not fair!)
My dad was exhausted by that afternoon (as you can tell...haha).
The next day we had lunch @ Smithfield's and took the boys back to the playground at our church.
Brandon insisted I go down the slide.
I was fine until I started climbing up the ladder. It didn't look that high but once I got up there I realized how high it really was.
Brandon wanted to go down with me. :) It was sweet. He wrapped his legs around me like I was his child. haha
Once the boys realized we were up there....they hollered for us to wait on them. They said...."we can go down the slide like a family."
Sooo that's what we did! The 4 of us!! :)
The ice cream truck drove David Papa (my dad) got us some ice cream.
.....after we ate our snack we played "around the world."

Dad even played with us! We had soo much fun!
 (My dad was pretty good. I was impressed!! haha -- He'll be sore tho.)
Bet'cha can't guess who won?!?!?!?
Aunt Stacey!!!!
 (well...Brandon, Tripp & Christian quit to go play with the airplane. Dad and I kept playing. Since they quit....that means I won, right?!??! -- haha)
Christian got this airplane for his birthday so uncle Brandon put it together for him.

 Brandon showed the boys how it's done.

 After a long day at the was time to head back home.
We had a wonderful week watching our nephews. They wore us out but I missed them as soon as we dropped them off.

Our Week part 1

Brandon and I have been watching our nephews, Tripp (7) and Christian (6) this week since their on Spring Break. Boyy...are they full of energy!! haha They don't take naps and they just go and go. We've had alot of fun with them but I have to say we are exhausted. They love to play baseball with uncle Brandon (especially Tripp). Last night they didn't want to leave so we let them stay the night. Today....we decided we needed a 'lil break so we took them to my sister this afternoon but I promised them we would get them in the morning.
As soon as they got to our house yesterday morning...Tripp wanted to throw to uncle Brandon. Of course...the backyard wasn't big enough so we headed to the park by our house.

Tripp hits really well. I was scared he would accidently hit uncle Brandon. The first ball Brandon threw to him...he hit it! I was impressed. (Brandon even taught him how to hit left-handed).
Poor 'lil Christian broke his arm several weeks ago so he wasn't able to do as much playing as Tripp. Christian tried to hit but had more fun playing the ds. haha
Bless his heart...He gets his cast off next week.
The boys even got aunt Stacey to play...(which is surprising--haha) Believe it or not...I hit the first pitch!
I was soo impressed with myself. :)
(Wouldn't you know my husband would want to take a picture.)

 Tripp likes to catch like uncle Brandon.
 Christian ran the bases and Brandon pitched.
 Tripp wanted to pitch to uncle Brandon.
 (I miss baseball...I still get teary-eyed!)
We also played alot of basketball...didn't get many pictures of that. We were too busy playing! :)
Brandon wanted to take the boys to our church to play on the playground.

 Christian was a little hesitant about going down the big slide by Uncle Brandon went down with him. How sweet!?!?!
 After a few times going down with Brandon...Christian finally decided to do it on his own, but he wanted Brandon right at the end of the slide to make sure he made it down ok.

 After we left the playground...we headed home....washed their dirty feet and headed to Wendy's. When we got back from eating....(I bet'cha can't guess what they wanted to do....!)
Christian went straight to the ds.
 then decided he wanted to watch a movie......
 Tripp wanted to play baseball outside......again! :)
 But this time it was different....Bebo was sooo cute. Tripp would throw the ball up in the air...hit it and Bebo would run after the ball....put the ball in his mouth and then take each one and put it in a pile with the rest of the balls. Brandon and I thought it was sooo funny. We've never seen him do that before. (He's a mess!)
(This post is a few days has taken me a couple days to complete it....haha)--I'm soo behind on my blogging!!
