Baby Moon!

Well, we are outta here! Nathan, (Carson) and I are headed to the Grand Bahama Islands. Nassau is the main island you hear about when traveling to the Bahamas. We will be just north of Nassau.

We are calling this our Baby Moon :)
We plan to renew our vows while we are on the beach which is such a special opportunity. Our vacation is from June 21-28. Travel with us and please pray for great weather and safe travel.

I've never been so excited to just get away and do a lot of relaxing!
Alex is staying in Little Rock with DeDe and Pops for the week.
Miss you all already!

Trip to ABCDE's house (Bentonville, Arkansas) June 17, 2008

Alex and I headed to Rogers this past week to stay with Alphabet Soup (ABCDE) Darby. We had a blast! It was a total zoo as usual, but the kids are so grown up we actually had a diaper free stay. Well, that will be the one and only one...because Carson will be here in 2 1/2 months. At least we got one!
We stayed busy the whole time. A big favorite of Alex's was the water park! There were two slides she went down and she did so great. When Nathan saw the pics of me, he said "who is that lady"-- haha! Guess he didn't recognize the large prego "lady." We had a good laugh over that one.

Caden was pure gold. He has the most precious heart!! We went to a place called Fun City (similar to Chuck E. Cheese) so of course the goal for any boy is earn as many tickets as possible to get cool prizes at the end of the day. When we walked in there was a big inflatable Dora for 400 tickets. Caden immediately said, "I want to win that for Alex." Can you believe that? I was just blown away by his unselfish and sweet heart. After the long day of earning tickets, we didn't have 400, but Aunt Onnie made sure Alex went home with the Dora prize! I think that was pretty awesome! She did too :)

We also got to watch Caden and Dru's last soccer games of the season. What an event! The boys were awesome. Caden scored 2 goals and Dru also scored a goal. We felt lucky to be there to get to see such studs in action. Eston and Alex were great cheerleaders on the side line. My other personal favorite was watching Alex & Eston together. They were so cute! Eston is 5 months older and they had a slumber party in his room. Needless to say, we had a blast and wish we saw them much more than we do!
