what, a {new} blog post?

You can't say I didn't warn you...I did. I knew finding time to update this would be tough, but I have to admit, averaging a new post every month/month and a half is pretty lame. Good news is that summer break is  {almost} officially here, which should free up a little time. Along with a few other things, blogging {semi} weekly is on my never ending to-do list. Bare with me...I'm bound to have some good stuff!

For now, here is a little update of what's been going on with us the past few weeks...

Mother's day started with a bang! My sister, mom and I drove up to Charlottesville and spent the day vineyard hopping with one of mom's dear friends and her daughter. Between the scenery, the wine, the servers, and the conversations, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and vowed to make this and annual trip. Here are a few pics from the day...


The further along we got on the trail, the more we were feeling the need for a photo shoot. In order to retain my dignity, the other pictures will remain under lock and key.

Around 7:15am on Mother's Day, I finally convinced my sis to get up {i.e. kicked her until she rolled out of the bed} so we could head home...I needed to see my babies! I walked in to a plethora of goodies, the best being the giant, poster-board sized card that little man {and hubs} made...home made cards are the BEST! For all of the grandmothers, I made the hand print flower pictures {thanks, Fran!}, which were a total hit. Of course I made an extra one for myself, and good 'ol Auntie CoCo.

Not only is this my favorite time of year because school ends, but there are all sorts of fun things going on for the kiddos, with T-ball and Soccer topping the list. I still have a hard {ok, really hard} time accepting the fact that J is old enough to play sports, but I have to admit, I relish being a little soccer mom. Apparently it's something I've always dreamed of becoming...How cute is this little guy?

love this action shot!

So dramatic, but so darn cute!

hope we have a little athlete on our hands!

I decided to take a little personal day last week and head on over to SHS for Field Day...so glad I did! Considering he will be 5 in less than a month, I might as well take advantage of all these opportunities while he isn't embarrassed by me tagging along. Seeing J in his own element, interacting with his friends was priceless. Her are a few highlights...
{even Izzie tagged along!}

That's all for now. Here's hoping my next post will be within the next seven days!
