labor day weekend

good times with family & some old friends this weekend.  a bit cool for a pool party, but it was nice weather to be outside & hang!

who is that masked man???

i wasn't so good at remembering to take pictures of the fun.  thank goodness monica & poppy helped out there. 

sweet kate's tramp stamp.  i can say that since i have one.  & it doesn't look nearly as good as her's.

water gun fights galore!!

& another masked warrior

sunday was discovery church's 2nd birthday.  happy birthday discovery!  we love going there & hearing God's message through trey each week.  what a cool, fun & inspirational church.  i can't say enough about this place.  i feel at home there.  i cry every sunday.  i feel the message is meant for me each & every time.  

& today is our friend melissa's birthday!!  happy birthday to you.  melissa, you are an amazing lady.  i don't know what i would do without your friendship.  thank you for all your help through difficult times. 

monday.. , the kiddos first parade!  ben was so "eggsited" he couldn't sleep. up at 5:30 (& we are normally not up till 9-10).   he knew there would be elephants & all sorts of fun things there.  no elephants, but there was tons & tons & tons of candy.  did i mention there was candy??

getting ready for the parade..

a pretty float.  God bless America!

there were horsies for gracie!

this pic's for you mom.  i don't know who they are, but you were missing from the float!!!

here's cousin aron walking with his operating engineers & little man ari. 

a marching band!!  yes, i love band & loved band camp.  i'm a dork. no, i don't have any "one time at band camp" stories though.  but we sure did have fun down at mtsu hanging out on the football field at night!   i was sad to see how small pike central's band is.  what happened??

the kiddos (big & small) going in for a haul.

loving the parade!

little gal on a bike.  she was about gracie's age.  love her doo-rag.

big guy on a big bike.

yea!  candy!  a man came & dumped a bunch on her head, telling her it was raining.  grace got a big kick out of that one!

hauling home the goods.  that bag is full!

big ben & his bag.

heading home.  not long after the picture, momma & daddy were carrying the loot.

  i'm thinking we've got our halloween stash.  just from gracie's candy.  (ben is guarding his from me, as he knows momma's sweet tooth)

my song for labor day.  thank you all the hard workers in america for what you do to make our country great!
