Cousin Fun Day!!

Today was a great day!  This morning mine two were joined by their cousin Hudson for art fun at our house.  They have been hanging together since birth and always love to do things together.  They all love art too!  We had a great morning being creative and laughing!

First project was initial canvases!  They turned out super cute!

 Then they each painted a small little item!
 Here are those two finished projects!!
 Then the older two made these bead art things while Taylor colored!
 This was a great activity it took them over an hour to do! They also really enjoyed it.  Love that they are older and can do harder projects now!!

 Then, after a yummy lunch pizza delivery by Meme we got crazy and headed out to Cheekwood to see the big bugs!  It was a rare low humidity not a 100 degree day in Nashville!  So, we decided to enjoy every second we could!

Playing on the butterfly exhibit!

 Checking out a fountain!  Cant believe they are 8, 3, and 7!!

 Grand Daddy long leg
 Rolling down the hill, they have been doing this for years!

 Taylor's first time!
 Three little Pigs, let me in!

 Yep! I am not short I am fun size!!
 Busy Bees!!

 She has loved him since she meet him the day after he was born, she was a year old.  He maybe taller then her now, but best friends they still are!
 Proof I was there
 My beautiful little girl!  She loves life and teaches me to stop and look out the window to see the beauty before you!
 This strong lady, has kept all three of them in some form since shortly after Emma's birth.  They may drive her nuts but they love her to pieces.  We are blessed to have such a great Meme and I am blessed to call her mom!
 Why yes you may play in the tree!

 Trying to overcome his fear!!
 he got brave and slid down!
 It was a great day, but this sums it up, night night!

Summer Nights

Tonight was one of those nights, were we passed in the driveway both going different directions with one of the kids in tow.  Emma had physical therapy with Daddy and Taylor had movement class with mommy.  I sent Daniel a text message and suggested we meet up to do some errands then head to Blue Coast for dinner and a trip to a park nearby.  He agreed and that was the plan.  Once again trying to add fun to the craziness of Emma's current medical needs.

Blue Coast has family night on Tuesday's which makes it an affordable option for a night of eating out.  Plus, it is a favorite of me and my hubby:)  

 I see you!!

 Plus there is the added bonus of the balloon man who is there on Family nights!!

 There is a cool park near the shopping area we were at and normally it is too hot to stop, but we are having much cooler weather today, so we got to play!  The kids were so happy to get to go to a park they don't get to go to much.  I was just happy that is was not a 100 degrees today:)  
 Still love seeing this cute pink Cochlear Device on her head. 

 Little monkey hanging around!!

 May have to sign her up for some Cross Fit classes 
 Just a swinging

 Then we finished the night out with picking up a few groceries and getting a free cookie for dessert.  Gotta love Publix free cookies.  Emma got to help push the cart.  She thought she was hot stuff.  

It was a fun night and a nice break from all the craziness of therapies.
