Mag's Day Out

This past weekend Keith and I took Maggie to Louisville to stay with Keith's cousin Amber (which Maggie loved more than anything) and have a litle special time with only her. When we got to Louisville we dropped our stuff off at Ambers house and went to the nail place to get a pedicure. We of course left Daddy at Amber's. He was fine to sit this part out. Haha. After a nice and much needed pedicure we left to go to see the Louisville Bats play at Slugger Field. I didn't know how much Mag would enjoy this bc sports have never really been her thing but it was awesome. It was very kid friendly and fun. (Minus the fact my husband was in line at the concession stand until the 7th inning. I am not exaggerating either.) After the game they had fireworks bc it was one of the last games of the season. Maggie really enjoyed that. We went to bed got up the next day and headed to the mall. At Maggie's request of course. We headed home after that. It was a quick trip but a good one. I just always wish we had more time. It seems like when you go somewhere and are having fun the trip is over in a flash. Here are a few pics of our trip. Keith's Aunt Shannon and Mag
Amber and her daughter Taylor and Mag and I

Mag and her daddy

Maggie loves Cotton Candy. (Actually she loves everything!! Lol. But this really is one of her favorite treats.)

Maybe one of these days she could learn to eat it without making a huge mess.

We had to park a million miles away from Slugger field and walk so I took that opportunity to take a ton of pics of Maggie. I thought they turned out sooo cute.

Maggie told us she loved us about 10 times while we were gone. She even told us she appreciated us taking her on a trip. That made it all so worth it.

Mag Happenings!!

So many times I feel guilty now thinking that Maggie is getting left out. She is so big and independent and the boys are so little and needy. Maggie is at school all day and then comes home and we do homework and she goes and plays Barbies or watches TV till supper and before you know it the night is over and its off to school again. This weekend we are taking her on a special trip to Louisville. Just Maggie, Daddy, and I. We have family there we are spending the night with and the boys are staying with grandma Cathy. We are going to get Manicures and Pedicures with Amber (Keiths cousin) and then we are going to a baseball game and maybe to the Louisville Science Center. Anyways she is pumped for some one on one time and I can't wait to take her. She was five when Connor was born and so we had a lot of one on one time with her for those 5 years and we took her everywhere and did special things all the time with her. We are due now for some special time again. She is getting so big and I am so proud of her. Here are a few recent pics of her.
At the Petersburg Splash Park a couple weeks ago. Why can't I look like that in my bathing suit?? Lol.

Here she is cheering at the game. She loves cheerleading.

This is her first day of school this year. Can you believe she is in the 3rd grade already? Time flies. We were just watching home videos of when she was a baby the other day and I can hardly remember her as a baby. It seems like so long ago.
I have found lately I enjoy blogging if I only post a couple pics at a time. Then it doesn't take nearly as long and I have more things to blog about. I think this maybe my third post this week. I am on a roll!! I want to have my blog made into a keepsake book. Have any of you done that? How do you go about it?

Happy Anniversary to me!!

So 9 years ago today I tied the knot with this handsome guy! Can you believe I have been married 9 years already. Time has really gotten away from me. It seems like only yesterday he asked me to marry me him. We had our wedding planned for June 2002. I started eating raw onions and an assortment of other disgusting things and my mom said you have to be pregnant. She went to walmart got the tests and sure enough I was. My mom, dad, and sister were giggling like little school girls and I cried. Needless to say we were married September 1, 2001. Maggie came into this world in March of 2002. Keith will ask me every so often did you ever think your life would turn out like this? 2 more kids, a home of our own, a stinky dog, great in-laws who could ask for more. I am so blessed in so many ways. It has turned out even better than I could have ever asked for.
So what are we doing on this special day? Not a thing! I am taking Keiths grandparents to the dr and Keith is working late. Awesome. That part I may have envisioned a little differently. Lol. But our life is busy and crazy and their is little us time. So maybe next year. I am thinking for our 10 year we will take a trip somewhere. Maybe Hawaii or Jamaica. A big trip like we have never taken bc we have as I just made public had kids since only a few months after we got married. The thought of a week long trip is giving me anxiety already. Maybe if I start planning now by next year I won't feel so nervous about it. Any ideas on a good 10 year anniversary destination?
