Hudson Goes to Preschool

Well my BABY started his Mother's Day Out/Thursday School this past week. It was MUCH harder on me than it was on Hudson. He went right in and wanted down to play. I thought that he would be upset, but he just waved bye to me and I had to make him give me a kiss. :( Anyways he did great. Here are a few pictures from this past Thursday.
Getting ready to leave for school.
Not so happy about going!!!

While Hudson was at school I decided that Cooper and I would have a Cooper/Mommy day. We never get to do anything just the two of us so we took advantage of this time! Cooper wanted to go bowling so we started off there and then went to the toy store. Afterwards we went to lunch and then it was time to pick up Hudson. I had so much fun spending time with Cooper and I hope that we get to do it more often!!!

Weekend in Nashville!!!

This past weekend Aunt Amy and Brian got married so we headed up to Nashville! We had a great time and got to see lots of old friends! Amy looked so pretty and we are so happy for Amy and Brain! Unfortunately I did not take many pictures, but here are some of the pictures from the weekend!

We also met up with Jackson and Connor on Saturday. We spent the day with them by hanging out at their house and visiting the zoo. Despite the weather being HOT we had a great time!
Cooper LOVES Jackson and Connor!! He thinks that he is as big as they are. Here they are swinging Cooper.
Too sweet!!!

Way behind on blogging!!!

A couple of weeks ago Chris and I took Cooper to his first baseball game! We saw the Chattanooga Lookouts play and he had a great time. Besides wanting EVERYTHING to eat he was very good! We ended up leaving early because it was getting late but overall we had a great time!!! Here are some of the pictures!
Cooper was not too sure about "Louie the Lookout." He asked about him the entire game but when it came time to see him he was not so thrilled!! The only way he would see him is if I was holding him!

On another note Hudson has discovered that he can "dunk" the basketball. He loves to play at least until big brother comes in and takes over!
"YEAH!!! I made it!!!" (sorry about Cooper's rear end in the background)

On Sunday Chris took the boys for a bike ride. As you can see they both enjoyed it!!! Cooper asked all day if they could go again. Unfortunately Chris was worn out from the first ride and could not pull them anymore!! :)

Another beach trip!! - Kiawah, SC

Well we went to the beach again this past week! We had a great time and the weather turned out to be fairly nice! I had never been to Kiawah before but it was nice and very relaxing! My sister and her boyfriend even got to join us so that was lots of fun seeing them! Here are some pictures from our trip!
Nana and Hudson playing in the waves.This was Hudson first "walking" beach trip! He loved the sand!
Brotherly love!!!

On Friday night Chris and I went to dinner for our anniversary but we took JuJu and Joe with us since we never see them and we knew we would go to dinner just the two fo us when we got back to Chattanooga! We all had a great time!! Thanks for going with us guys!!!
I think that we rode bikes every day and most every morning we rode down to where the river meets the ocean. It is a really cool place. Eventually the water from the "river" goes down and you can walk on the sand and catch big crabs. It is hard to expalin but it is awesome when you are there in person! Anyways, here is a picture of my biker boys!
Cooper, Nana, Hudson and Ragan playing in the ocean.

On Saturday we drove down to The Ocean Course and let Cooper hit on the putting green. It is a beautiful course and the homes are AMAZING!!! Anyways Cooper loves to play golf so here are some pictures from his first "real golf" experience.
Hudson wanted to play too!

The whole gang at dinner on Saturday night.
(Chris, JuJu, Joe, Ragan, Hudson, me, Mitchell, Nana and Cooper)
As you can see we had a great trip and we hope we can do it again next year!
