Playing in the sand at Gilmer Co. you can imagine, they had sand everywhere!

babies going night-night

Saturday, our day started early...6:40 am to be exact! We started out going to Kiddie Carousel for their annual yard-sale blowout. After that, the girls hung out at the Sewell's house before heading to Ellijay to see the Dads play in a flag football tournament. BTW ~ Eric sprain his ankle, it's about 2 times as big as the other one! After their loss, we headed to Dawsonville for dinner & some shopping at the outlets. We then headed back to Ellijay to watch Hannah Montana at Swan Drive In. The kids had a blast! They were so tired and smelled a little stinky from being outside all day :)

Go Mudcats!

Emma had her first ball game tonight. She did a great job...they all did! Eric is in Charlotte doing some training so the head coach missed the first game! :( I was so proud of M! First time at bat, she whacked it big time but it was foul, then she struck out :( Second time at bat, she hit a line drive with a double! They didn't officially keep score but if they did, we would have won! Congrats Bud on a job well done! :) love you lots!

Saturday we took the girls to our local "Pets R Us" just for a visit...or so we thought. We all fell in love with this little fellow (7 wks old), after all, who wouldn't? He is a mini rat terrier named Jackson; named by the girls of course! As some of you know, we did have a boxer named Ella who we got back in January. She didn't quite work out...Ganny Debbie has her now. Jackson is the cutest little dog ever! And believe me, I am NOT an animal person but Jackson, I love! He is about 1 pound now and won't get more than 2-3 pounds full grown...that's what I'm talking about! :)

Fun at the Park

Taylor spent the night with Emma on Friday night. We ate dinner with her & her parents then it was time for a bubble bath...they could have stayed in there for hours! Then it was time to watch some movies, we watched HSM 3 & Bedtime Stories. I think they finally went to sleep around 12:30 am! Saturday morning, we ventured out to eat breakfast at my dad's restaurant, took a trip to the outlet mall, then headed for a picnic lunch at our local park. After that, we went to buy Emma & Ryan a new puppy. I'll post pics later today.
