So much to update over the past couple of weeks. Hope you have a minute to sit down, relax and enjoy the updates.

We had a playdate with Andrew from our church. Here Andrew is feeding Addison some dessert. Yummy!

So cute!

On Oaks Day (the day before the Derby where the fillies (female horses) race) we had a cook out with our Sunday School class at the park. The weather held off for most of it. One of Addie's favorite words is "duck" so she was excited to see the real deal at the park and decided to chase after them with her scoot.

Playing on the playground.

For Derby we went over to Jeremy's dad to celebrate his birthday and watch the Derby. Addie had fun playing with all of the beanie babies.

We are in the processing of building built-ins for our entertainment center. Well, Jeremy is building and I help paint. Addie thinks she is a big helper. I'll post pictures of the final product, whenever it is well, final. Speaking of my talented husband, Jeremy recently started a blog of his own to post pictures of his work. Check it out sometime Hopefully he'll put up more pictures soon. He is so talented and amazing! Yes, he joined Facebook and started a blog in a matter of about a month. The world might be ending soon! Hee Hee. :) Maybe he'll actually do a post on here now that he knows how to operate the blog. We shall see...:)

David, Carrie and Dylan came in town for a long weekend. My parents were in on Friday (wished it was longer, but my mom had to work on Saturday). We went to the Louisville Science Center where they have a Kidszone. Dylan and Addie enjoyed playing on the bus, driving an airplane, doing construction and more.

D-man driving the bus.

In the space ship. "Um, I know you are my uncle that I don't see much, but what is that on your head?"--Addie

Trying to get them to pose with their construction gear.

This part was the water zone to teach kids about water currents. Addie thought it was basically bath time. Needless to say her entire shirt was drenched and we had to borrow an extra one of Dylan's for a bit.

An art project

Wrestling with Dylan. Apparently she tries to wrestle some of the older boys at daycare. They also reported to us last week that she kept trying to kiss another boy all day. Jeremy can tackle that one in the future! Ha! :)

I'm sure this isn't the last time we will see this.

Dylan will turn 3 at the end of the month so we celebrated on Friday with our family.

On Saturday we went to a graduation open house at the Browns in honor of our good friend, Chad (Leigh's boyfriend and our "photographer"). Maddy and Addie had fun on her playground. I should have videotaped this. Addie would "talk" at the top of her lungs while going up the steps like she was trying to say "everyone look at me" and then laugh while she went down the slide. So fun!

Maddy and Addie were then entertained by the beer bucket. Lovely picture, huh?

So funny!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day! It helped that we had beautiful weather. Louisville has not had many sunny days lately. We went to church, went to Jeremy's mom's house for a bit, took a long nap when Addie napped, met Dylan, David and Carrie at the park and then out to dinner with them before they headed back to Florida (boo hoo). Jeremy and Addie :) gave me some yummy lotions and some flowers to plant in the yard. The day was more about being together as a family.

Here's our ham putting a bucket over her head.

I couldn't resist buying this dress. This one is for all my DG sisters! Anchors Away!

"Walking" with Honey. She is scared to let go.

Photo-op before we had to say goodbye. :(
On the way home Jeremy said, "I love our family...the three of us." And I couldn't agree more. Motherhood can be exhausting and frustrating, but it is the best thing I have ever experienced in my life. It's hard to remember life before Addison was born and it keeps getting better!

How could I not love being a mom to this girl???!!!

Happy belated Mother's Day to all the moms out there. You are all beautiful, strong women!
