The Last Weekend in June

Do you remember it?
It just ended a few days ago.
But I am a little behind on posting about is apparently my new norm.
It was my Dad's Birthday on Sunday; so we headed to Hot Springs to spend time & celebrate Pappaw.
The girls joined me for a couple of hours at the office. I was SOOOOO very thankful that the DVDs play on my laptop!!!! They were such good girls!

Once we locked up the office, we loaded up & headed out!

Jamie caught a little catnap on the way.

Kayla gave in & got one too.

We all had a little snack from the gas station/Dairy Queen in Forest City. I only ate 1/2 of my mini blizzard.

And....we sat in traffic for the construction (predicted to be finished in 2016).

A little stop at Ruby Tuesdays in the Benton/Bryant area for dinner.

We made it to Nonnie & Pappaw's....& the girls instantly started playing.

There wasn't much time for play before it was bedtime....SLEEP-OVER!

I got up & did a little exercising. I'm in full on training mode to walk the St. Jude Half Marathon, so I try not to skip too many days. I've found a half marathon trainer app (which I will try to blog about on my Weigh-in/Workout Wednesday post). This was my Week 2 Day 1 run/walk sequence.

The girls enjoy spending time playing in the hammock!

And they LOVE when Bella gets to join us on the boat!!!!!

And sometimes, you Jamie just HAS to give in & take a little nap....the world is a much better place when she does.
Everyone was EXCITED to play in the water:

Bella jumping off shoulders

Go Bella Go!

"Ring around the rosy....."

".....we all fall down!"

Throwing Bella

Bella jumping off shoulders

Kayla attempting to jump off shoulders.....still a little timid about it though

Boat ride back means a little rest time for Jamie....

....& Bella too.

The guys man the back of the boat: Dave (aka: Dad or Pappaw), Greg, & Larry (aka: Pappa)

Neighbors: Misty (aka: Grammy) & Esther (aka: Mom & Nonnie)

The girls hang out up front: Misty, Esther, & ME!

One cool chick

This waterfall is just really pretty to me!

Bella decided to help with log watch

Cool Kid

Sleepy Chick

The cove goose, known as Missy or Gossie

Some of the cove ducks

Kayla is asking Bella if she wants to stay over & swim in the cove. Why it was a secret to ask her & needed to be whispered, I'll never know. Maybe Kayla wanted to make sure Bella actually wanted to before asking the adults...who knows?!?!?!

These two have turned into little mermaids this year, LOVING to be in the water!!!!

Water gun fights are FUN!!!!

But when Jamie's whole body starts shivering (the sun was setting & the cove is shady in the afternoon/evening, so the water was getting chilly), she is ready to get out!
Since the water got chilly, the girls decided to let the Barbies go for a little swim the their "pools".

When Bella had to head back to her Grammy & Pappa's, the girls decided to relax a little with Daddy before...... on the porch.

Week 2 Day 3 of the Half Marathon Trainer app was a run/walk sequence. Yes, I realize I skipped Day was a cross-training (any non-running activity) day & I wanted to do Zumba on the Xbox so I pushed that to Monday.
Then we took Pappaw out to breakfast to celebrate his birthday. He picked Patty's On the Lake (& it was GOOD):

The girls gave Pappaw his card.

Those girls love Pappaw

Greg, Me, & Daddy

Daddy & Momma

Nonnie with Jamie & Kayla with Pappaw

After breakfast, it was time to load up & head back to TN.

We took the scenic route when it came time to avoid the was beautiful drive!

And when we got back to Somerville, we made a stop at the Crawfish Cabin to get a crawfish appetizer to go along with our steak dinner!

  1. You almost did perfect with the posting... LOL! Had a great time. Bella has asked me 12 million times when the girls are coming back. I hate that our summer days together are over already! Have fun with all of your busy weekends ahead. :)


Thank you SO much for checking out my post. I will try my hardest to reply back to everyone that comments.
