Memorial Day Fun

We spent Memorial Day in Decatur with our Favorites --
Family, Friends, Food, & Fun!!!

Kallie Larkin & I love the sight & smell of a big grill . . . 
Jumbo water slide -- perfect for my little 10 yr old fish!! 
Tanner doesn't care too much for the water,
but he had a blast in the inflatable!
Chillin' w/ my firstborn & my sissy :)
Time to eat!!!
Game time . . .
my grandma decided to show off her jump rope skills!
Timothy showed off his bball skills
So funny watching these games . . .
Tanner made a new friend named Tim.
They had the best time together & were inseparable!
Can you tell they like to dance & throw up peace signs?!
We ended the day with full bellies, happy smiles, & ready for naps!!
Memorial Day Funners!!!

Taylor's Piano Recital

My little maestro & entertainer extraordinaire got a keyboard for Christmas & piano lessons for his birthday.  Although he enjoys making up his own tunes & "playing by ear," he realizes his "real," weekly lessons & piano homework are important. His instructor has been very impressed with his talent & progress. Taylor was thrilled to show off his musical skills during his very first piano recital last week!
We are so proud of our Music Man!!
Great job, Taylor!!!

Tanner's Last Day

Since 5 months old, Tanner has attended Little Angels Preschool at Homewood Cumberland Presbyterian Church.  He has absolutely loved his school, teachers, & friends the past 4 years. This past Thursday was his last day & he was given a fun party, complete with pizza, ice cream floats, & presents! I know everyone there will miss him as much as he'll miss them. By the time I got there, the party was over & some of his friends were gone, but I caught a few pics . . .
Miss Lauren
(Tanner's teacher the past 2 years; he absolutely ADORES her!)
Mee Mee
(Preschool Director who has taken GREAT care of my Tanner; he LOVES her too!)
Mrs. Serah
(Tanner's very 1st teacher, in the baby room; LOVED her week one;
they bonded quickly & sometimes he didn't want to leave school bc he wanted to stay w/ her!)
Hard to say goodbye to a great place & great friends,
but Tanner has great memories of his very first school!!
