Look Out Sam Woods...

For those of you who don't know who Sam Woods is...she is the daughter of Tiger Woods. For those of you who don't know who Tiger Woods is...well, I can't help you! This was Layne's first golf outing and she had a wonderful time. She loved roaming endlessly around the course and taking in all the sights and sounds. She putted her ball around a little. Of course, she soon got impatient and figured out that she could get her ball in that little hole much faster using her hands!

Memorial Weekend Fun!

So, I am a little late posting Memorial Weekend pictures, but I've been understand. We had a great weekend. Kandace and the kids came for the long weekend as did my parents. We all went to watch Reece play baseball on Saturday and Sunday evening we cooked out with friends and family. Layne's Mammy and Dar (Jerid's parents) even stopped by for a little while! In this first picture Layne is ready to go to the game, so she has to put on her jewlrey. She is such a girl!!!

Kamryn and Bella Boo are ready for the big game!

I realize this picture isn't very clear, but I had to put one up of Reece. He pitched this game and did a great job!

Miss Avery looking so adorable in Layne's sunglasses (size 0 to 2 years)! Doesn't she look like her Momma?

Watching Reece's game wore all the kids out. This is what it looked like in the back of my car when we got home. C.J. really looks up to Reece, so he was so happy to get to watch him play baseball. On the way to the game, he kept telling me "This is going to be so so so great!!!" And, "Reece is so so so fast!" He melts my heart!

Layne spent the last evening of this beautiful weekend taking a dip in the pool. She had a blast even though the water was FREEZING! It reminded me of what it was like being a were never too cold in a pool and you were never too hot at an amusement park (even in July)!

Congrats to Lance!

Saturday was a very big day in our family. My little brother graduated from OU Law School. If you know Lance, then you know how long he has been working towards this achievement. He is extremely smart and disciplined. He has finally reached his goal in education and his family could not be more proud of him! Congrats Lance!!!

The proud parents!

Of course, this is where Layne stayed during the entire graduation...snuggled in to her Uncle Ryan. It sure made my job easy! Thanks Uncle Ryan!!!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day! Jerid and Layne got me Cindi Lauper tickets! We spent the day working on the house and in the yard, but I was with my family and that's all that mattered to me. Hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day!

Swimsuit Season

This is Layne's new swimsuit. She wanted to put it on and then refused to take it off. She wore it around the house most of the day! She is built like her Mama (a little junk in the trunk), but she is above average in height! Yea!!!

What a dad will do for his daughter...

It has been a while since my last post, so I thought I better put something up! This was taken a while back, but I get such a kick out of it. Layne and her daddy were spending some "quality" time together while I was loading the dishwasher. When I went to check on them...this is what I found! Apparently, Layne demanded that her dad put each and every one of these in. She just kept handing them to him. He is such a sucker when it comes to his little girl, so he gladly obliged!!! So...Leia, even though Layne won't keep her bows in, I wanted you to know they were being used!
