Earthquake #2

I was awoke this morning by the bed shaking ever so slightly. I thought to myself it felt like an earthquake but quickly dismissed it since they were practically unheard of here in VA.

Yeah, well guess what?!

It WAS one! A 3.6...but let me tell you....NOTHING like the one we had in Hawaii I posted about here...(CLICK HERE to read)....

still scary to think of it though!~

Anyway...it was barely a shake...but apparently it is MAJOR news here! lol... I guess the news is a little slow today! :)

Not much else to report other than DISNEY WORLD in 3 WEEKS! :)

Love to all!~ :)

4th of July Fun~~BBQ!~


We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend here!~


Nana, Pappy, Brads brother and his dog all came down to stay for the weekend. Bryan (Brads brother) brought his camper to show us, and the kids were blown away by it. They were even allowed to sleep Sat and Sun night in it! :) Of course they both asked if we could keep it~lol


On Sat, we decided at the very last minute to have a lil BBQ...well...that quickly turned into a mini family reunion for Brad who got to see some cousins he has not seen in about 9 years. It turned out to be a blast and we had quite the crowd!~ I think there were about 15 people here!!

Nana, Pappy, Bryan, Maybn, Bill, Brian H, Kathy, 2 teenage girls, 1 middle school boy (belonging to Kathy), Scott, his wife Katy, their son Ryne, Jimmy, and his wife...plus us 4 :)...


It went great though and was tons of fun. We lit off SO many fireworks...it was ridiculous. And they weren't the little pansy ones either~ :) lol...

Anyway, here are a few pictures and video from the weekend... HUGE thanks to FAMILY and FRIENDS that made it so special by driving SO FAR to come!~ You rock!~


P.S. There are a few pictures on here that tell a story...with a one word ending....FAILED.

Summer Fun...

We have been outside a lot this summer...and it has just started!

Thus far we have been to Kings Dominion 4 times...the beach...the pool.... and then of course your regular daily activity. Sunscreen has been our bff this summer! So much so, that we are using SPF 100+.

It seems to work....the only sunburn KK got was when we forgot her sunshirt (at the pool) and she spent so much time in the water it (the sunscreen) seemed to wash off.

Note to self: NEVER FORGET SUNSHIRTS!

Thankfully her sunburn wasn't bad....we were lucky.


Here is my babygirl...



Also some pool pictures and some video to show that KK is SOOOO ready for Disney and the waterparks...Popo and Papa...I KNOW you can appreciate these! :P


Introducing....FISHGIRL....:)
