This is sort of life lately, but really, it is the past few weeks, since I am catching up on everything.  After this, I should be back to somewhat normal posting....? Maybe.

A few weeks ago, my parents kept my brother's kiddos so we did a cousin date out to kanki-- I swear, they love this place.  

 We are in full blown golf mode over here.  They are all about it lately and it's been fun to watch them improve and enjoy it. 
 And watching them carry their clubs is adorable too, if you ask me. 

They are loving a date to the driving range-- we've been up there a bunch.  

 But, alas, that isn't our only sport right now.... baseball started a few weeks ago too.  The boys are on the same team again, which is a scheduling sigh of relief.  There is a pretty wide range of talent on the team again, but it's great for both boys (and only one team to keep up with is pretty amazing for momma). 
 I went to a MOM party a few weekends ago, and Bruce was determined to help me get ready-- excuse the hair half done-ness. 
 It was a fun party and I managed to spill stuff all over my dress.  Whoops.  Got to get this to the cleaners asap. 

 Back on the golf course- not sure why the visor was flipped?

I mean.... with that smile.....
 I think they played 24 holes this day. 

We had a really really really REALLY bad week with Andy's tummy.  So bad that I took him in after hours to see a doctor.  He listened to everything we have been trying and decided it was time to see a specialist (all the praise hands), so we finally have our appointment today.  Thank goodness.  A warm bath seemed to ease some of his pain, so he spent some time in our tub-- and this sign is a good reminder to us both.  (thank you, amy!)
 Bruce LOVES going to get the boys every afternoon from the bus stop.  I swear, on the walk home, he acts like hes talking to them about their days.  Just three boys, chatting it up. 

Some of the sweet neighborhood friends took me and Amy out for our birthdays- we went to Bartaco and had a great time!

 I celebrated my actual birthday at the beach for Labor Day weekend.  I woke up that morning and the boys and Eddie had me come downstairs for my gift-- and new bike! It is a super cute beach cruiser-- along with a basket, drink holder and a cell phone holder! I promptly took it for a ride with music blaring from my phone.  Super cute!

 The boys were SUPER excited because it was a total surprise and I had zero idea about it. 

We spent a lot of Labor Day out on the water--

 Why does Bruce's smile crack me up so much?

 Obviously he loves a golf cart ride!

Oh this is big time life lately.... my sweet friend Ashley Luke's husband was named the interim head coach at Ole Miss-- this is the dear friend that we have gone to visit the past few years for a game.  We are SO excited for them-- this picture popped up in my time line after their first win of the season.  I could cry for them!
 How about the sunset???? ahhhhhhh
 He loved it too. 
 More smiling Bru.
 So these two dogs walk into a bar......
 And before we knew it, it was time to head back home again.  Bruce doesn't want to miss a THING in the front seat, so he breathes on me the whole way home.  He's cute though.  So it's okay.
 He also will listen while Cal reads to him, so that's pretty great too. 

Andy's teacher sent me a text: she spotted the boys spotting each other on the playground and had to take this picture-- talk about making my day!!!! 

Throw in one more sport, why don't ya..... we started swim up last week.  He went to one practice last week, and the first 55 minutes were spent discussing the expectations and then they swam a 100 free (four laps).  
 He LOVED LOVED LOVED it.  Couldn't wait to go back. 
 he went on Monday and I am not kidding, the kid probably did 50-60 laps, full out each time.  He was COOKED when he finished.  The pic below is from his first practice.  I didn't get one from the second-- he was too tired to smile- ha!

So that's life lately, but from a few weeks ago.  We've got a big guy turning EIGHT this weekend, a first baseball game and lots of other fun stuff coming up!
