What a Wednesday!

Wehl....i have been absent in a major way over the past week from the blog world. It's catch up time! We had a good weekend. We had 3 events on Saturday, it was a fun and busy day! I didn't take a single pic, but we had fun at 2 friends birthday parties and at Kenzie's dance recital too! It made me even more excited for my little Tatum Lauren to start dance this fall! All those little girls in dance outfits are the cutest thing ever! :) Sunday we went to church and then when we got home Cade had the biggest melt down fit that I hope ever happens (extremely past tense). I think he was just worn out from all the busyness, and uhm he is a 3 1/2 year old. He had a long nap and was much better that night, thank goodness! How's the potty training? We had some friends over last night and they gave us some good advice on what worked for their son to poop in the potty, so we are on day 1 of trying that. Cade will go tt in the potty like a champ, but that poopy is a different story. Wish us luck as we try something else!
Here is the little toot playing play doh, which is one of his favorite things to do. He loves to make letters, if you ask him to spell daddy he will say "J O N" it's hilarious!
 Looks like Cade is having a serious talk with his daddy about something.....Jon looks focused too!

 Cade's last day of gym class for the school year was this week! I was SO proud of everything he did at his show off day, aka "The Big Show!"

 At the end of the class Mr Matt gave all the kids an award and had a little speech planned out for each of them. I loved everything he had to say about Cade, my little man makes me so happy!
 Mr Matt said in his speech that Cade has the class down to a rhythm, he knew what was next at class every week, he said he knows how to listen well, he said Cade is his back up teacher, he is very bright, and knows everything that is going on. I think he nailed that one!
 So happy!
 So proud of Cade! I can't believe he is 3 1/2. Loved taking Cade to gym all year and seeing how much he has learned and how much confidence it has given him. I love how he gets SO excited when I say "Cade guess what today is" and he would say "gliss glass mommy" and I would say "yes Cade gym class!" I just love this little boy SO much! :)
 Since this is the last week of school. Brooke, Gigi, and I thought it would be fun to take the kids to the zoo to celebrate summer (and get a trip in before the heat is too miserable)! We had a fun day and I think it's safe to say we are all exhausted this afternoon Here are a few (ok, a lot) pics of our fund day!
My daughter looks 5 years old here, she needs to slow down just a little! 

 Thank you Gigi and Papaw for the kids 4th of July outfits, love that tradition!
We decided to break them out early this year and get a little extra wear out of them, after all it's nearly memorial day weekend!
 This might just be my new favorite pic of the kids, awhhhhhhh! I am sure Tatum loved that dorito chip kiss from her brother, ha!

 Such a fun day!!

picnic @ the park

Yesterday was such a pretty day! After Mops we headed to the park for a picnic with friends!
I FINALLY got to meet little Asher Williams, he is such the stud little guy! Gentry and Asher are just about 3 weeks apart, they looked so cute this pic of Asher looking at her!
 Tatum and Gage swinging together, Gage is going in for a smooch here, ha! Love them!
 Bren and Avery swinging together!
 Me and my little munchkins!
 Such a fun day with all these kids and their mammas! :) Don't worry, Cade didn't go the entire day without pants, just after 2 accidents. WHAT IN THE WORLD AM I GOING TO DO? I think we've figured out the problem tho!
Have a Happy Day! :)

Mother's Day Celebrations

Mother's Day was excellent!
My day was Saturday! Jon and Cade went to get me breakfast, which ended up being all 4 of us eating together in bed, ha! Jon and the kids took me to lunch at my latest addiction; chipotle, yum! And then I was sent off to the spa for a 75 minute massage! That was the longest massage and absolute best massage I've ever had! Thanks to a super great husband I have! And that's not even all...Jon arranged for my parents to babysit Saturday night (Thank you Gigi and Papaw so much) and we went to dinner and a movie! Such a great day!
Here is my family all dressed up and ready for church Sunday morning!
 The kids were not in the picture mood, but I was able to get a very serious look with Tatum, ha! Love this little girly girl to pieces!
 My matching boys at lunch Sat
 and the girls!
 She keeps us laughing!
 Date w/ the hubs! Have I mentioned how much I am LOVING his new look, such a stud!
 Thank you babe for a wonderful day, you spoil me SO much!
 Sunday after church we headed over to my mom's house for a yummy fajita lunch! We decided that next year on Mother's Day we are going to have all the men cook for us....what a great idea, right!
 We surely missed the Adler clan. I need to crop Heather into this pic! Love ya cuz!
 Auntie Brookie lovin on Mrs serious face!
 Sarah and Amanda....amazed at how much Sarah has been through since last Mother's Day. She looked so beautiful on Sunday and was feeling really great after a few really hard weeks! Love these cousins of mine!
 Happy Mother's Day Mom!
 She LOVED her gift!
 Nanny and her girls! We had quite the time taking this pic, this was take 3 and Nanny approved, ha!
 All my mom's children!
I couldn't be more thankful for my mom and all that she has taught and done for all 4 of us over the years! I've said it before, but if I can be just half of the mom she is to Cade and Tatum they will end up doing pretty good! Mom, I love you so much and I am SO thankful I have you in my life. And that I get to see you ALL the time! :) Thank you for loving the kids like you do the 4 of us!
 Sunday evening we had Jon's family over for dinner! We served mango chutney briskit tacos and they were a HIT! We had fun playing in the backyard with the kids! I am so thankful for my MIL and all that she has taught Jon over the years to make him the man he is today! And of course for how much the kids love her! Happy Mother's Day Debbie!

 We even managed to get a group pic! So fun!
Since my mom cooked for a bunch of people on Sunday, we took her to dinner on Monday night! The weather was pretty so we were able to dine on the porch and enjoy a fabulous dinner!

And I would like to leave you with the days that I became a Mother....
Couldn't be happier to have Cade Michael
and tatum Lauren
to love on everyday! I am beyond thankful that I spend my days with them, they are truly wonderful gifts!
Happy Mother's Day!
