Swimming at GiGi and DoeDoes!

Here are some pictures of the girls swimming at my parents house. Notice how they had to pull ALL the toys in the pool. GEEZ! They even had tables in there! HA!

Beach with Daddy!

Spur of the moment trips are always the best! We headed up to Biloxi, MS before daddy went back to work and had soo much fun! Even when we did get kicked off the beach by the cops :) HA! The girls really love the beach and enjoyed themselves more than I thought they would. So did Jojo! She just loves to swim and chase birds so it was RIGHT up her alley!

Here is the story on how we got kicked off! We went to the part of the beach where no one was since we did have JoJo with us. No biggie. There were no signs or anything and no one too close to us so we didnt disturb them. We had JoJo on her leash anyways so if someone did walk by we could hold her so she didnt disturb anyone. Well some rude man came walking up and was picking fun at Jojo so she was barking. She doesnt really bark at people unless she sences something wrong. Well it was by no means a mean bark more of a "I really want to play" bark. But either way it would kinda keep me on my toes since its a big bark :) So as he was walking by he started like egging her on in a way. Saying stuff to her and provoking her. I was getting mad but of course JoJo just really wanted to play so she barked. FINALLY the man walked away and told Colin that dogs werent allowed on the beach (there was another dog we saw down the road by the way). So we said ok. No big deal. Well not like 10 or 15 minutes later they had two poice officers come up on 4-wheelers to where we were sitting. Just wanted to add that JoJo sat there quietly and NEVER even barked and they were on 4-wheelers! and they were super nice and just told us that they didnt allow dogs on the beach. They noticed there was no signs but they did inform us of all the rules :) So needless to say we had to pack up and leave. But of course we only drove like 10 miles down the road to another beach where we saw other dogs and NO SIGNS! We thought it was pretty funny though! At least now we know for next time. Texas beaches yes Mississippi beaches NO!

Lowes Build and Learn Clinics :)

If you havent tried these yet they are soooo much fun! Any kid would have a blast. We have been to a couple and love them! They are on Saturday mornings at Lowes and Home Depot. We have not been to the Home depot ones yet but plan to go this coming weekend. Go to their websites to find out more. Or just ask :) Here are some pictures of the girls with Colin making their project!

1 year married/6 years together

Sunday marks me and Colin's 1 year wedding anniversary and 6 years together. Hard to believe we have been together for so long :) God has blessed us so many times and taught us that no matter what life throws at you, he will always be there to help you through it. We have been through a lot this year but it was definitely rewarding for the most part! We have been through a lot and I am sure we have a lot more to overcome in our journey together but I am very glad I have a wonderful man like him to go through it all with. He is such a great man and daddy. He inspires me everyday and I am beyond lucky to have him by my side! I do have to say I have the greatest husband in the world. So Colin, Thank you for being such a wonderful person, husband, and father! I love you very much!

Madisons Gymnastics :)

I have been meaning to get some good pictures of Madison doing her gymnastics but of course I always forget. Well I remembered to finally take SOME pictures although not very good. I will try to remember to take better ones on her next gym class. She is doing sooo good and she LOVES it! I am so glad we put her in it! And its so cute watching her do her flips and cartwheels!
Here are a couple of the pictures. Sorry they are far away but its a big gym and the parents stay in a watching room. Next time hopefully I remember to start taking them when they are right by us :) She of course is the one in the lime green unitard! HA! Of course SHE had to pick LIME GREEN! But I do have to say it goes sooo well with her dark skin :) The last two are of Madison and Rylee on the way to Gymnastics that day in the car. I think we had just pulled up or something. Rylee was being silly :)

Denist Visits :)

We (as in the whole family) went to the dentist last week :)! It has been forever since I have been (over 10 years) so I know I needed to go and Colin wanted to get his cleaned and checked out. I was SCARED out of my mind. Colin thought this was hilarious of course. I almost had a panic attack before I even sat down. But once I sat down it was a breeze! I was very glad I went. Of course I didn't even think that I wouldn't be able to get my x-rays since I am pregnant. DUH HEATHER! So I of course had no x-rays but the dentist did see some cavities. Which I knew. And also advised me to get my wisdom teeth pulled. Which I was VERY against until he told me that if they come all the way through and there isn't enough room for them it could make my bottom teeth crocked (ok so I cant spell too good but you get what I am saying) And I definately didnt want my teeth like that since I have always had pretty straight teeth without braces. So I will be getting those out once Abby gets here. but of course I will get my x-ray before then! Hopefully no root canals. The dr said most likely I wont since my teeth do not seem that bad! YAY! Colin is getting his wisdom teeth out finally. He wasnt sure if he would or not but decided that it was best. Poor thing :( So all in all Colin and I's appt was great.
Now for the girls :) Colin was gone of course so I had to take them by myself. I was pretty nervous since it was Madisons first time and Rylee usually throws a fit each time she has gone. NOT THIS TIME! It was wonderful! The girls went to the back by themselves. They dont let the parents back there its a kids only zone :) I think Madison and Rylee really loved that. The lady came back to tell me that they cleaned both girls teeth and BOTH laughed and giggled the whole time they were doing it. Madison didnt need x-rays but Rylee did to see how her teeth were since her fall last Feb. (she lost her bottom tooth and has to go get x-rays every 3 months although she has only gotten 3 so far OOPS) She did great with the x-ray and the dentist even told me that she sat in the chair all by herself this time. She is such a big girl! I was super proud of both of them for being such big girls. The dentist said that they both brush their teeth VERY well and he was super impressed! He said he figured I was still brushing their teeth. And I informed him that I dont brush their teeth anymore that they do better when they watch me do mine. So we do it all together! YAY! So no cavaties and their teeth are doing great. Rylees front teeth are a little darker than last time but they show no sign of dying which is good so he was pleased. So all in all each of us had great dentist appointments. Daddy and I have to get follow ups but I am actually looking forward to it and I dont think I will have a panic attack this time.

New car, Blue Bayou and some other what nots :)

Ever since Colin has gotten home we have not stopped. Between swimming, visiting family, getting ready for Abby, getting a new car and all this other stuff that has come up its been crazy around here. This week we are finally slowing down though. I think we ALL need it!
So first about my new car. As most know my little Escape hasnt been doing very great since we moved last year. I guess all the driving back and forth really did a number on it. But these past few months it got bad. And then it just died. I was sad but also knew it was time for a new one. And plus we needed an upgrade since Abby will be making her debut in about 2 months. While Colin was gone we searched online and I decided that I needed 3 rows with bucket/captain seats in the middle for easy access to the back but I also wanted a lot of room in the back :) So I was picky. Pretty much I wanted a suburban!! So when he got home we went look around and at about 2 places and ended up getting my new car! I LOVE IT! It is perfect for our family and best of all I dont have to be scared of it breaking down. LOVE IT! So I am almost 23 years old and finally have a new car!! Pretty nice! My hubby spoils me! HA!
Now for Blue Bayou! We knew even with me being pregnant that we wanted to get season passes to BB this year since the girls LOVE LOVE the water and arent scared of anything. Well, we finally went the other day. WOW! I always knew they werent scared but I never thought in a million years they would be soooo adventurous. My 2 and almost 4 year old BOTH went down the slides. BY THEMSELVES! WHAT?!?! They had a blast. Rylee even got super mad when we told her she was too little to go down the Black Snake Slide (Thats what she called it) and the straight down slide (Plunge) WHAT! I am not even a fan of the plunge. And I do seriously think if they would have let her she would have went down BOTH. They had a BLAST. Which I knew they would but now I am in trouble if I try to bring them by myself. So I guess I will have to steal the BIL or someone to come with me so they can ride the slides together! I am so glad they had a blast. And I think Colin had just as much fun as they did :)
I have had a couple doctor appointments since last time I posted. Everything is still great of course. Abby is doing great and kicking like crazy. I love it. The girls are still singing to her EVERYDAY! They love her so much already. Its sooo sweet. They are always kissing and hugging Abby. Although Rylee does still get mad when she is trying to sleep on my belly and Abby starts kicking away. but she is getting better. HA! At my last doctor appointment Abbys heartrate was 162 bpm :) She is RIGHT on track to what the girls were! I get another ultrasound soon to check everything out and hopefully get my induction date FOR SURE this time. We are throwing Aug 4th around. But its not set yet (meaning its not in the Drs little black book, its just on my MASSIVE file on a yellow sticky note). Speaking of having a massive file. Man mine is HUGE. I was almost embarressed. HA! I guess when you have 3 kids at the same dr and have been going to him since you were 13 yours would be huge too but it was a little much. Pretty funny though. The dr. said it was good to be that big as long as its pregnancy related :) So I guess its a good thing. Well, thats it for now. I have a slide show I will be posting later when Colin gets home so I can get my pictures :)
