Cotton Pickin' Kids

The children and I traveled to Georgia for the weekend to celebrate my nephew, Tre's, 5th birthday.I was so happy to see his little face light up when he had all his friends and family sing to him. I could tell that he really enjoyed himself, and felt like it was his special day. It was a fun pool party at mom and dads. The kids had a great time playing with their cousins and I was thrilled to get to spend some time with Mom, Dad, and Larry.

There is a cotton field just off Mom and Dad's house, and Dad cut a path for the kids to check things out. Steven was very impressed by how our clothing is made up of the stuff. He decided to bring some home in a ziploc bag so that we can "make a shirt or two." Silly boy.

The Bucs won their game today against Atlanta. Yipeee!! (Just in case some of you didn't notice in the score keeper to the right.) I am getting ready to go down stairs to watch the game from my DVR. Then, it is off to another fun filled week of school in the a.m.

First of all...Tre' is 5?! I can't believe that. It's crazy how we lose the time so quickly. I'm glad you had a good time with your family. I love the cotton fields. Go make that boy of yours a shirt! Remember..moms can do anything!

I love the title and that super cute picture of the kids holding hands from the back! I'll bet Georgia is just beautiful and peaceful right now!
