UGA Spring Game

Last weekend, we all loaded up and went to Athens for the spring football game.

I was undecided on going, until Arabelle had me write mine and Jared's name on a paper. She wrote her's, Bo's, and Mae's down, then told me that it was the sign up sheet for the game and we were all going. Pretty smart way to convince Mae and me to go. :)

We left at 8:00 and Mae was ready for a nap pretty soon after.


We were all SO glad to finally get there! I had packed a picnic lunch, so we found a grassy area near the parking garage and had a quick picnic before the 1:00 game.

It was hot and sunny, but we found a perfect spot in the shade!


Poor Jared.....Bo drove his little red truck all over him while he tried to watch the game.
 I think the kids were most excited about the game food. They wanted cotton candy, but they weren't selling it that day. Bo (and Mama) got Dippin' Dots and Arabelle got a frozen pink lemonade.
 We all made it part way through the 3rd quarter before the kids and I had to get out and find some where to play. I think Mae was relieved:






We also found a coffee shop inside one of the buildings and they had giant cookies, buy 1 get 1 free. Giant cookies make happy kids!


Bo was asleep minutes after getting in the car.

 And Mae was exhausted, but not giving in.

We stopped for supper in Milledgeville and got home just before 9. It was a LONG day, but a fun one!

Splashing and Swimming?

Well, it's only taken me almost a week to share these pictures.....last Monday was a really rainy day, so late Tuesday morning we checked out all the puddles with the promise of getting to splash in them after nap/rest.

It started out as the usual splashing.....




And then we kept walking and looking for more puddles. They were a bit ahead of me and SWIMMING before I knew it. They declared this was the BEST PUDDLE EVER!!!!





Mae got out of the stroller and enjoyed some small puddles and playing with rocks.

Arabelle and Bo had the best time in the swimming hole....they played for about 30 minutes. Mae was content to explore the area too. I was standing there watching Mae play in the mud/rocks while Arabelle and Bo were happily playing in the 'pool' and I was just overwhelmed with the fact that we've been given these 3 sweet kids. :)

Mae even got dirty. :)

They were disappointed that the 'pool' was gone the next day.

Siblings

Apparently April 10th is National Siblings Day, which a good time to look back at old pictures! We had so many fun times growing up together (I won't mention all the fighting and arguing). 

Steven is 4 years older than me and Lindsey is 16 mo. older than me.....






I think this was my 4th birthday....I LOVED that pink and white polka dot dress!!






Thinking about all the fun memories we made over the years makes me happy to think about all the fun Arabelle, Bo, and Mae will have together!

Baby Arabelle

When Arabelle peeked through the hole in the tunnel at the park last week, I instantly thought of baby Arabelle peeking through! 


I can't even figure out how the time has gone by so quickly! She was just over a year old in the above pictures and now that little face peeking out is 5.5 years old.

Wheeler Park

It's hard to keep us inside once Spring weather is here! We went to the park last Thursday and I actually grabbed my camera for some non-cell phone pics.

This was Mae's first trip to the park since she started walking. It made things easier and much more interesting. :)




I love how babies can squat down like this!

Watching Arabelle and Bo on the big slide.





Silly girl!



Peek-a-boo!


No shortage of swing pushers!




 There was a school there and Arabelle was the same size as all the 2nd graders there. She played with a few of the girls. :)

Sweetest little smile!





They had to do a little running.

I packed Arabelle and Bo a picnic lunch and met up with their best buddies (B & B) after they were picked up from school. A & B stayed with them and spent the afternoon at the park, then at their house and their Mimi brought them home around 4:30. They had the best time! 

They sure have grown up a lot in the last year! Wheeler Park, April 2013
