Hampton is Four!!


Oh what fun!!  Love him so!! 

Blowing out candles on his actual birthday, Sunday!  We had been in Indianola all day for the twins' christening, which was so nice.  

And, I have to add this story since it happened on his birthday at the twins' christening....Back story:  we've only taken Hampton into "big church" one time before this a while ago and he lasted about fifteen minutes before he got too loud/fidgety (besides when he was a teeny tiny baby).  However, lately he has been asking to go with us....but I've just been avoiding it (like the great mother I am :-)  So, this was pretty much his first time in "big church" and you could tell he was taking it all in.  I didn't think anything of it when he asked me if this was God's house.  Then when the minister stood up at the pulpit Sunday to welcome everybody to church, Hampton looked at me with his big blue eyes and asked, "Is that God?"  And to give you a little better picture, this was a bigger man with a deep voice :-)  Bless Hampton's sweet little bones.  Seriously, I could have just melted.  I did my best to keep a straight face, but obviously couldn't hide my grin.  No, sweet boy...but God is here and he loves you......and later today you and your daddy need to have a longer conversation about it all.  Oh the faith of a child....

{Day 2} The Zoo

The rain held off just long enough Saturday morning for us to enjoy the zoo.  When I say it rained the entire week of "Spring Break" I am not exaggerating!

Love these group pictures!
 Thanks Granddaddy and Phyl for a great time.

Spring Break Mini Adventure {Day 1}

We use the term Spring Break lightly around here....with a three (almost four, eek) and two year old, it is basically just another week in the life of :-)  Anyway, last Friday I took the kids and met Phyl and my nephews in Memphis for a little adventure (sadly, Cassey and Rose had to miss out because Rosie was sick).  I'm pretty sure this made up for an otherwise normal week :-)

First stop Sky Zone!

These boys are getting so big.  Hampton and AL adore them :-)

Getting so big herself!

Hampton's favorite thing....running and jumping into the pit.  One year ago, my little cautious guy would have never done this by himself.  He is really starting to come out of his shell, 4 is going to be a fun age!! 

Dodge ball {Nored played for almost the whole time}

Dodge ball for the littles.

Jump, Jump, Jump

Phyl jumped too!  I did not realize at the time but they all coordinate, should have gotten a group picture when they are all being still :-)

Next stop, America's Incredible Pizza.  Umm, this place is like a Chucky Cheese's on crack!  I didn't get many pictures because I was making sure I didn't lose one of mine in the chaos!

This was a "ride" where you watch the screen and your seat moves/fans blow to make it feel like you are on a roller coaster thing.  I wasn't sure if Hampton would like it but he jumped right on up there and then wanted to do it again.  It was hysterical watching both of their faces.  I almost wet my pants!  Not kidding.  Then I had to try it out too :-)

After this we went to meet Granddaddy and check into the hotel.  Dinner at a nearby Mexican place (Phyl's and my margaritas were very much earned after all that fun) and then I took mine straight to bed!

Fun times, good memories!
