1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

So please leave lot's of comments from now on I love reading them!

Hang'n at Granma's

Granma lives right on a pond so there are lots of frogs around. This froggy happened to be hiding in granma garage so we captured it in a pop box and made it a home in this cooler. Brayden got a kick out of it. We called it Hippiety Hop. Before going to bed last night Brayden wanted to check on Hippiety Hop... but he was gone he must have hippiety hopped away.

What a happy girl.
Brayden insisted that he go for a ride on Granma bike.

Watchin the airplanes from Granma's back porch.
I was bribing Brayden to eat his lunch for every
bite he took he got to blow bubbles in my milk.
He loves these blue sunglasses from our wv buddy Sara.
Brayden watching his moving in the car on our way to
visit cousin Maria and her boys. He's very focused.
Punky Monkey... what a crazy, happy girl.

Too funny...

Yeah I may not be quite right in the head but when Brayden wanted to put this on as a hat I just couldn't resist. Me and granma were dying laughing... and no, there wasn't anyone else in this bathroom.

Water Park day 3, Brayden's finally got the hang of it

The girls chill'n on the sidelines.

Boy I love this Bumbo chair. We even take it in the shallow
water and she loves it, we splash around and have a great time!!!!!
Brayden went down this mini twisty tube slide like 1000 times I'm not even kidding you and just the other day I couldn't get him to go down it for the life of me. I guess everything happen in it's own time. He needs to do things on his own terms. Anyhow, I had such a great time because he was finally having a good time. Can't wait to go back.

Hi Daddy... we miss you. Wish you were here having fun with us.

Tons of fun at Aunty Sandy's house

I got this slip'n slide for $5 this week, I figured since Brayden had so much fun in Kentucky on the slip'n slide we could use this in the backyard at our new house... since we actually have a backyard now, yeah!!!! But we took it over to Aunty Sandy's house so the kiddos could play on it together and they all had lot's of fun.

Cameron helped Brayden out sliding down the slip'n slide!!!

Aunty Sandy, Alex and Natasha

Natasha and Bub

Water park day 1, brave'n it alone

Magic Waters Water Park; Rockford, Illinois

As you can see this stroller is a big hit. Brayden would rather hang back there than play in the kiddie pool. We had lot's of fun though. It was a little nerve racking going there by myself with two kids but we made out okay. We'll be able to do more stuff next time when grandma or uncle Kurtie goes with us. We're looking forward to that. Grandma bought us all season passes so we'll be hang'n out there alot, not to mention the fact that it's brutally hot an humid so it's a perfect place to hang out! Next time I'll actually have pictures of the waterpark when I have more assistance, so stay tuned.

new stroller...old stroller... love it

Gotta love free stuff! My cousin gave me this like forever ago (Thanks Jackie), knowing that one day in the future I would need it. Thank goodness for that because it's awesome, it's like a Cadillac it's huge and it's maneuvers really well, kinda short on storage though but I'll manage. It has been in my mom's basement gather dust and mold for some time now, but we scrubbed it down and hosed it off and now it's like brand new!!!!! Really Alex belongs in the back but Brayden likes it back there so much so that's his spot now I guess. I also posted this pictures because you can never beat 2 children a sleep at once!!!!!

Bye Bye Charleston

We will miss you all!!!!!!! You must know that knowing you has been a blessing in our lives. I personally wouldn't have ever made it this past year if it weren't for your friendship. All of you have been so kind not only to me but also my children. You will always hold a special place in our hearts! We love you and miss you already!!!!!! Thank you for being you.

Kentucky times

Nicole wore out Alex doing horsey on her knee as she
drooled down her leg... boy what a workout.
Alex literally passed out 2 seconds later.

Brayden is always cooking so we decided to cook him in Nana's huge pot!

Boy was he tasty!!!

Slip n Slide Fun

We were having so much fun watching Brayden and Kory on the slip n slide. Jessica almost peed her pants and I was laughing so hard I was crying!!!! Ah always fun times at the Figueroa's!
