Our Mother's Day!

OMG!  We had the absolute best day EVER!!  It was sooo much fun.  We decided to go to Stars and Strikes so that everyone could have fun!!  The whole gang came from Todd, Shannon to Jackie and her whole crew!  They had a ton of specials for MOMS so we got to do a lot.

We bowled first.  Sooo fun!

And then we ate.  We ordered a TON of appetizers and just set up like a buffet.  There was something for everyone.  And surprisingly.....it was delicious!

Then it was time for lazer tag.  I had Keith take my camera to the car at this point so I wouldn't have to keep up with it but I wish I hadn't.  It was a hoot!  Every single one of us from Addi on up went in and played.  OMG!!!  FUN!!!

After lazer tag, we made our way to the bumper cars where some of us rode those.  All moms got to ride for free (you do know Shannon and Taylor are moms, right.  They do have dogs) so the 4 of us had the bumper cars to ourselves and we had a BLAST!  We laughed and laughed!  We decided that we would make this an annual tradition and meet here every year!

Oh, Rainy Day!

I have never seen someone so excited to see it raining outside.  I scored this rain "ensemble" (Jackie's word to mock me for buying it) at Gymbo for dirt cheap a while back.  Addi loved it when I brought it home and I told her we had to wait for a rainy day!

Well, wait we did.  It just would not rain.  One day we were driving home from somewhere and 3 (yes, 3) raindrops hit the windshield and we were so excited.  I drove like a maniac to get home and when we finally got there....it was sunshiny as could be.

Finally, one glorious morning....it happened.  Rain, sweet rain!  She was so excited to get all geared up (with ladybug jammies underneath and all) and go splash in the rain.  Can't imagine what the neighbors thought (although....I think I have a pretty good idea).

5th Grade Field Trip

Wow, the field trips these days are way different then the ones we took  back in the dark ages.  I can remember going to the Cobb Civic Center to see an orchestra play or something boring like that.  And I think my mom paid like $5 for it.  Drew's field trip was $175 for him and I to both go!!!  But it was worth every penny.  It was a lot of fun and sooo organized.
They chartered buses to take us downtown which was great.  The pic above is Drew and his teacher (yes, I know she looks like one of the students).
First stop was World of Coke.

And then we went on the Hardrock Cafe where they basically had our lunch ready and waiting the minute we sat down.

 The final destination was the GA Aquarium! 
Fun times!

Gone Pickin'

Well, I finally made it to pick strawberries!  Drew wanted to go but they always closed too early so Addi and I just snuck over there on dreary day!  This girl LOVES strawberries.  I mean LOVES them.  She was in all her glory when we pulled up to Harry's.

I told her not to eat them until we washed them. A few minutes later I hear her little voice say "these are washed" and she was eating away.  Oh well!

I brought them home and washed them and then put them back in the basket in the refrigerator and as soon as she discovered them in there....she was constantly going to the fridge and getting one.  I just gave up and let her eat them straight out of there.  We also had strawberries with every meal for DAYS!!!

A Great Day for a WHITE Wedding!!!

Mr. and Mrs. White tied the knot this weekend in the most gorgeous wedding ever.  Unfortunately......I have hardly any pics of it.  I was doing good before the wedding and then I decided I didn't want to take my camera to the ceremony so I could enjoy it without worrying about pics.  And then I could pick up afterwards and take pics of the reception.  Wellllll........that didn't happen (dang those strong Margaritas).  I never took another pic the whole night.  We will just have to wait on the professional pics to come back.  And there will be a TON of them!!!!  So without further ado....here are the random pics that I have.  (I also lifted a few from Facebook).  The first batch is the actual wedding and then the ones after the car are from the rehearsal dinner on Friday night!
