Memorial Day Fun

Starting our fun weekend!!
Hanging out with Ebby Lee at the Cox's house

There's Miss Kirby...looking quite stylish








Saturday morning: when I do my work at home, Kensington always plays with this orange highlighter...it entertains her...however, I caught Tulip the thief hiding with it while the baby sat on the floor looking sad that it was stolen.



Isn't my grandmother beautiful? This was at our pool party on Saturday afternoon.





Getting to wear swimsuit #5





Our family loves to play pool volleyball


Get me out!!!!!!!!




Monday: we sponsored a 10k race; these are 4 of our 6 employees. Heather, Lauren, Amie and Chris. We missed you Mark and Manda!!


The boss man with his serious face...is everyone appreciating the braces free smile?????



After the race, we headed over to my parents' house to swim with BB and Sean


My parents' backyard is paradise!


All clean after a busy, busy weekend!!

The Curious Case of Shay Shull

Apparently, I am like Brad Pitt's character in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"...I am going backwards in age. At the beginning of June, I will be getting braces for the SECOND time as an adult AND getting my tonsils taken out. It's a long, long, long story but the bottom line is that I have no choice...I am pretty much repeating puberty but this time, I have an 8 month old. Speaking of that 8 month old...here are some pictures from our walk today.

Worth the wait...

Mother's Day has always been special to me because I have a wonderful mom and two amazing grandmothers, but this year has been the best. My little sweetheart made my first Mother's Day perfect. Waiting to be a mom on Mother's Day was worth the wait...Kensington Kate was worth the wait.

We are on our way to church.
We ate dinner with Papa Jay, Lovie, Aunt BB and Uncle Sean




Me and my mama






Look at those two teeth!

















She loves hanging upside down...

Hawaii Baby!

I'm warning you right now, if you don't want to see a million pictures of my family in Hawaii last week...STOP READING RIGHT THIS SECOND!


For the rest of you, we just got back from a week long trip to Hawaii's Big Island, and it was FABULOUS! Andrew, Kensington, mom, dad and I all traveled over for the week. We had never been to the Big Island before, we ususally go to Maui, but the Big Island won us over. About 3 days into it, Andrew said that it was the best vacation we have ever taken, and I really think he was right. Our 7 month old could not have been more perfect. She was absolutely wonderful the entire time. And our resort was AMAZING. We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Resort and it was perfect.

At the airport about to leave


Look at all our luggage!





In her PJs on the 8 hour flight. She only slept about an hour and a half; the rest of the time she was all smiles.



Like father, like daughter


Are we there yet?

9 hours of flying and 2 plane rides later, we make it to the Big Island


Day 1

Yea! We woke up in Hawaii!!!!







We ate a buffet breakfast every morning at our hotel. Yummy!


Yes...those are live dolphins swimming around our resort. If Kensington had been a little bit older, we would have paid for her to swim with them.
