A Day at the Beach

We went out on the beach Sunday and stayed out there just about all day. I didn't make Brayden take a morning nap since we were going to be on the beach. I figured that he would be good and tired by the time we came in and he passed out long before we came in! *haha* Brayden had a great time playing in the sand but didn't care for the water that much at all. Hopefully he will learn to love the water because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beach water!! We did play in the sand and had sand EVERYWHERE!! I think I still have some sand in some Brayden and his Aunt Brandi played in the sand for awhile until she couldn't handle the sand anymore. Then it was my turn to get down there and play with him, which I loved!!!!After playing in the sand for awhile he decided it was time for a nap so he slept on my chest under the umbrella for 2 hours.
We have had such a great time with the family and can't wait for the rest of the family to get here. :) We did a little bit of shopping yesterday for brayden...and yeah mother and me! :) We weren't supposed to be buying anything for us just Brayden but we had a detour. Our main objective was to get Brayden summer clothes for next year and start getting him some winter clothes. I'm very hesitant to buy him pants because he is soo short and he is still in 12 month clothes. He has several 18month shorts that he will not even be able to fit before the summer ends. So, I'm hoping that maybe he'll be able to wear them next summer. Fingers crossed :) We did get him a few things.. I am excited about a little jacket we got at GAP it was $9.99 and 30% off that! I thought that was a great deal, and we also got the cutest bluejean jacket from The Children's Place for Fall/Winter. They are both VERY cute and I'm sure he will be VERY cute in it.
This morning Brayden and I woke up and Aunt Sam was making homemade biscuits for everyone. We had biscuits, sausage, eggs, and white gravy! YUMMY!!!! Aunt Sam and I are the stay at moms this week...Sam's Duties are to Cook and my duties are dishes and clothes. :) Brayden has decided this morning that he wants Oki's cup instead of his own, so he's walking around with a pink flowered juice cup!
The picture upload is not working right so I will try to do a post later with all the pictures :)

Beach Beach Beach :) :) :)

We are at the beach!!! WOOHOO... We got to Destin about 2 1/2 hours ago! Thank goodness...I've been looking forward to this ALL summer long. I look forward to this every year! My whole family under one roof for 7 days. :) I love it! Brayden, Mother and I are the only ones here at the moment. Aunt Gail, Uncle Harrison, and Trevor are on their way down and Sonya and Brandi are coming too. Aunt Sam, Uncle Wayne, and the kiddos will be here tomorrow night after DT at church. My daddy and Tad will be here Wednesday, Aunt Chan and Tucker should be here Monday or Tuesday. We are going to have a house full :) I love it though. Last year Brayden was still a baby and didnt care for the water or sand very much, but I have a feeling he will be the one throwing sand all over us this year and not Oki Grace! haha...Well maybe both of them... :) I wish my daddy and Tad could be down here with us the whole time...but as they say somebody in the family has to work...haha I am just looking forward to being away from Opp a little while. I am sad that I'm going to miss my first Homecoming at Ino as a member! But I do know that I will be able to attend many many more!!!! While I'm here I still have to do some schoolwork unfortunately. I start back to Troy in Dothan August 10th and I am soo excited:) I have missed it this summer.
Back to the Beach... The water looks a little dirty but it seems to just be seeweed. There is a yellow flag out today, but our experience last year with the water was awful...the waves just knocked you down and you hardly able to get yourself back up. I'm sure that the tropical depression isnt helping any at all... Hopefully we will have fun which Im pretty sure that we will. :) Our beach house is very nice, our house last year really let us down...we were very disappointed about the house that we had last year. This year...MUCH nicer:) Brayden is asleep right now in his pack and play after screaming about 15 minutes because he DID NOT want to take a nap. He was SUPER ill and needed his afternoon nap!! No skipping the afternoon nap today! :) Ohh...we have a elevator in here...its soo cool! we haven't rode it and I don't plan too, but we did use it to take our luggage to the 3rd floor...since we are always up top..It was much easier than carrying all of our luggage up 2 flights of stairs! But I will post pictures soon of the beach and Brayden! Hope everyone has a great Day! :)

Where does the time go?

Well its been a little while since my last post and alot has gone on since then. Mother, Brayden and I had a great trip to Savannah! It was so pretty there and I can't wait to take Tad and my daddy..They would love it :) Brayden enjoyed being pushed around all day and not having to walk.(haha) It was HOTT there and we walked everywhere!! We had trolley passes for Friday and Saturday but we only used it 3 times. We saw where the bench was that Forest Gump sat on when the feather landed on his shoe. It was really neat! They had alot of ghosts tours and things but we didn't do those because of Brayden. For some reason when we go on a vacation we think that we have to have ice cream everyday...and we did..and I gained 3 lbs. At least I lost it right after we got home. :) We pretty much wore Brayden out everyday!!! On Friday, we ate at Paula Deen's "The Lady and Sons" for lunch, and it was FANTASTIC!

Brayden and his Izzy waiting for our name to be called out at Paula Deen's.

My sweet little man was passed out after lunch at Paula Deen's and a little shopping

This was the view from the balcony of our room...very pretty!
Mommy and Brayden right after we arrived in Savannah!

My little boy is growing up soo fast and I don't like it at all. He can say: Mommy, Daddy, Dog, Ball, Oki, Bathtub, Yummy, Papa, PawPaw, Kitty-Kitty, No, Stop, Baby, Boc Boc(chicken),booboo, beep beep, Hey, Eyes, Thank you, and ByeBye. Brayden also has 15 teeth and boy are they SHARP! We went to the doctor this past week for his 15 month check-up and we was 21lbs and 31 in. long...I can't believe it! I wish he was still my 6lb 12oz baby all the time. His personality has started showing big time lately through he temper tantroms. I say he acts like his daddy and his daddy says he acts like me..(haha) He is still in 12 month clothes but I do put 18mon. clothes on him and most of the time they swallow him. His shorts especially fall off of him, but even most of his 12 mon. shorts fall off too. He loves his Eli and thinks that he is just as big as Eli too. If Eli is around then you'll know where to most likely find Brayden! The age difference between Eli and Brayden is only a little more than the age difference between Eli and me. So, I'm sure they will be close just like Eli and I are.

This was Brayden's first road trip...when Tad Brayden and I went to Louisianna

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture of my baby boy..He looks so sweet

Brayden LOVES spagetti..can't you tell...haha

Brayden getting ready to eat supper in LA.

Tad seems to be enjoying his new job, we are just adjusting to him being away every other week. He actually gone right now and will be home sometime Tuesday! I will have Sam's kids on Tuesday because Sam and Wayne are gone on a trip by themselves for a couple of days. I hope they enjoy their time away together. Okay, I have to share this...Brayden is standing in front of me right now with his crocs in the floor trying his very hardest to put them on..His pinky toe keeps getting caught on the outside of the shoe..It's soo funny and sweet.

I hope everyone has a Great week!!
