Playing catch up!

SHAME ON ME!!!  Can't believe it's been over 2 months since I've last updated! 
 Just goes to show we are loving our summer break! 

~Here are a few of our summer highlights so far~

 We kicked off the summer with a trip to the family cabin outside of Eureka Springs.  We visited our favorite theme park: Silver Dollar City and had a blast!!  While Turner loves to ride all the rides.....
 Sis prefers to eat popcorn, drink sweet lemonaide and people watch- just like her momma!
Turner's favorite part of the park - the water park!

 Striken a pose at the park
 Turner got a kick out of this coffin
 This is how you could most often find sis....waiting for Turner with a pretty smile on her face!
 This summer Lydia has learned to ride her scooter and she is almost as fast as her big brother
 And, with no "pushing" from me or John, Lydia is potty trained!  It has been a piece of cake!  One weekend she showed an interest in it, so we went to the store and she picked out all kinds of pretty panties and voila!  She is even waking up dry in the mornings!  So proud of my sweet girl, she is growing up way to fast!
 Well of course when we returned from our fun Arkansas adventure, we instantly began playing outside enjoying this wonderful mild summer weather
 Turner in action: Juming over both the sprinkler and Lydia :)  Pretty talented if you ask me.  And I about died at Lydia's reaction...she's closing her eyes and I'm certain she's praying he doesn't kick her in the face
 Turner also go a "summer cut" and is loving it.  So much cooler
 This little sunshine brightens my day!
 We had a wonderful Mother's Day...and as usual, John & the kids spoiled me rotten
 Turner picked me out the most beautfiul diamond heart necklace!  He was so proud of himself as he should be.  My favorite gift to date
 This was the 1st year Turner got to attend VBX at our church...the theme was Superheroes.  To say he had a blast would be a huge understatement!  He LOVED it!
 We also got to help Uncle E celebrate his birthday! Making silly faces before blowing out the candles
 Turner had an awesome Gotcha day filled with cake, presents, and a family fun day
Looking all pretty for "Jesus' Church"
 We have been blessed to be a part of a wonderful small group focused on adoption and fostering. 
 It's awesome doing life with those who have a passion and heart for adoption
And last but certainly not least, Jordan got to spend a week with us before he left for the summer to see his dad.  We love our time with Jordan and already miss the little stinker like crazy!!

I am absolutely loving this stage in our lives.  The kids are such a blast and I love my sweet John more and more each day!  So incredibly thankful for the blessings God has given us over the last few months.
