Wrapping up Spring Break

Our final days of Spring Break found us all around. We went Wednesday to Nana's for the day, and we had a blast! We went to the boys to a park where I used to play as a little girl.

They do everything together!
 Then we went for lunch, ice cream, and our usual ride around Fairhope, seeing where all of the family used to live and what they used to own. Wednesday night, Noah got to attend a Pensacola Blue Wahoos baseball game with a friend from school. He had a good time, and Papa John (the Papa John from Papa John's Pizza) threw out one of the first pitches. That really caught Noah's attention. Thursday was a big day for me....I got my hair did!!! 
Back of my permed head!!! 

Something new
 Friday was sort of rainy, so we mainly hung around the house, did a little grocery shopping, and had a friend stay the night with Noah to attend our Church Easter Party on Saturday.

Spring Break 2014

Noah is on Spring Break this week, and we have a busy week planned!!! 
Here's what's happened so far:
Noah won first place in a race at his school out of all of 3rd-5th grade.
He ran his mile in 6:33. 

Here he was after crossing the finish line....and almost foaming at the mouth! Hah! 

They had face painting....he loved the shark look.

Saturday we headed down to the beach for a couple of hours. Nicholas was excited about the sand box and Noah loved the waves!!! 

Someone asked where we were visiting from, and we said Summerdale. And we laughed and laughed and laughed! Our photographer here was all the way from Orange Beach! 
Then Noah was invited by a childhood friend of mine, who's children are childhood friends of Noah, to go to see God's Not Dead (which I've already seen and boy is it awesome!) and to stay the night. I thought it was just yesterday that she and I were having sleepovers!!! 
Noah's right in the middle of two of his besties.

Headed down to the beach with his buddies! Ashleigh braved it out alone...and they all came back unharmed! 

Stay tuned for another post with the rest of the week's activities!

Hippity Hoppity

Every year around Easter time, Derrick's work has a company Easter Egg Hunt and Party. We always have the best time, and it's so egg-citing for the kids. (See what I did there?) It's held at Oak Hollow Farm, which is such a beautiful place, and just the right atmosphere for a company picnic. Here are a few random snapshots I got from the day. 
These two shadows of mine totally have my heart

A photographer comes every year, and she always makes the cutest pictures....I just peeked over her shoulder!

The petting zoo....Nicholas wanted no part in it

Well, maybe a small part from outside

Our sweet neighbor Maddie came with us....she is such a doll, and my borrowed daughter occasionally!

He loved hunting for those eggs

Special appearance from EB himself

Noah still has the hunting technique as well

He was so proud of his collection

And Maddie with hers
 They had pony rides for the kids...
