And then they wore matching jackets

Thought I'd start this post off with a good lookin' pic of the two good lookin' men in my life. 

And I don't even have a story to go with it.  Just a pic, all by its lonesome.   

Hamp's been a little under the weather lately.  A little pink eye mixed with a bad cough and snotty nose does not make for a happy baby.  Needless to say, sleep has not been our friend and we are all feeling it.  Sometimes when I'm up at night (at some crazy hour!) rocking my sweet boy, I start thinking about who else just might be up doing the same thing as me.  I think to myself, " I bet so-and-so might be up rocking her baby right about now.."  For some odd reason I can find a little comfort in that.  I go through a mental list of my friends, family, and even people from the past, like maybe from college or something, and wonder if they are up rocking their kid or getting some awesome, highly desired, face-to-pillow sleep time.  Is that crazy or what?  I mean, what does everyone else think of when they are up rocking their baby?  Sure, a lot of the time I spend praying over my little ones, but I do find myself going back to wondering who else might be up with me, somewhere. 

The best remedy for being tired is to head out with the best friends for some girl time.  A night out with the gals lends itself to lots of laughs, food, and even more good conversation.  Pretty sure we were the last ones to leave the joint.

Kristin, me, Jobeth, and Kerri

On Saturday, Jobeth and I threw Kerri a baby shower, since she's due to welcome her second son, Cooper Jack, into the world in just a few short weeks. 

Beautiful Mama

Hamp spent the majority of the time using his baby blues to flirt with the girls.

This little guy is going to be a big brother soon.  He's one of the most polite 4-year-olds I know.  I love him!

The partying carried over into Sunday with cousin Anna's sixth birthday, luau style.

Lydia, Kate, Isaac, and Anna

Reese and Kate


Hamp and his girlfriends, Brooklyn and Braelyn
(He digs twins.)

Stopping the party for a little BeyBlade action:

We've been so thankful for the sunny weather.  It's not quite pool season but it is just right for some time in the sprinkler.

Kate, Anna, Sara Gale

The best thing about Kate's swimsuit?  It was given to her by her Aunt Lindsay, at my baby shower, right before she was born actually.  We've waited three and a half years to wear it and it finally fits!  Last year we gave it a try but it kept falling off.  Now, it's perfect!  Thank you, Aunt Lin! 

The Elmo sprinkler has seen better days...

...not quite the effect they had in mind.   Pretty sure it's clogged with sand and who knows what else. 

So we dug out the ol' trusty yard sprinkler and it didn't disappoint.

And just because I know ya'll need somethin' funny to make you laugh on this Monday:

There are NO words.
