Throwback Thursday

Today exactly 2 years ago I took my very last baby bump photo with Houston at 25 weeks. Little did we know that just 5 days later I would bring a 26 week 2lb 7oz baby into this world. He truly is a miracle child and God has some amazing plans for him. 

So here is my throwback Thursday picture of me at 25 weeks pregnant, the end of August 2011.

First day of Kindergarten

Today was Landon's first day of Kindergarten. O my how is this possible? My little boy is officially in school and not at Pre-school with me anymore. He was so excited this morning and was ready for the day.

School starts at 7:30 a.m.

His 1st day of Kindergarten

The parents had to go this morning to walk the kids into their room, drop off school supplies and have a parent orientation. 

Best picture I could get with Landon and Ella
Every child received a name tag
Landon was lucky enough to get 3 friends he knew in his class
Jason and I were able to spend about an hour in his room to go over class policy, fill out LOTS of paper work and do a few fun things with him before we left him at school. 
This is a picture of his family

Saying our goodbyes
Jason took the day off from work and I just went in late after parent orientation 

He had his own locker
Another big event today was that Landon rode a bus for the very first time. I will drop him off in the morning at school and he will ride the bus home
We are the second stop on our route and he is only on the bus for 7 minutes
He said the LOVED school and riding the bus
Walking home

Happy first day of Kindergarten. Let's do it again tomorrow

Beach Vacation 2013

Well I meant to blog about our beach vacation um... about 2 weeks ago, but life happens. We are all excited about starting Kindergarten in 13 days and have been busy preparing for that and Houston and I going back to school as well. So we had a fabulous time on the beach this year. We went with Jason's sister, husband and her two adult kids and their kids. My mom even came down for the first few days. Before we meet them at the beach we stopped for a few days to visit my dad and step mom.

Landon's 1st time on a go-cart
We visited the Gulf Aquarium one afternoon

Out of about 10 pictures this is the best I could get
After spending 2 days with my dad and step mom, we drove about an hour down the beach and met up with Jason's sister, her family and my mom.

Best family picture I could get
Both boys did an AMAZING job at the beach and they LOVED every minute of our time there.

This was taken on Landon's 5th birthday
Best I could get of the boys on the beach together ;o)
Houston loved playing in the sand and water

The boys had fun playing in my suitcase. 
I have been trying to get Landon to nap for 2 years now and the beach gets him in 5 days
I was able to keep up my running schedule on vacation and got several runs in the early morning
Running by the beach in the early morning was wonderful

After every run I soaked my hot and tired feet in the pool
I found a Tervis store and splurged on this baby.
Another great lunch at Peach Park on our way home
We had a wonderful beach vacation with our family
Until next year
