Kindergarten here she comes!

Meet and Greet before school started...she is excited to have Mr. Howse as her first teacher.

First day of School...I have loved have E at school with me each day! She is loving school and is making new friends each day.  I love seeing her at school all day.

Kindergarten Camp

A few weeks ago our school hosted Kindergarten Camp for all our new kinders.  Essie was so excited.  It was four half days and she got to rotate through every teacher's room. She got to meet new friends and I got to see her in a whole new light!  It was my first glimpse into what it was going to be like having her at school with me each day.

Safety Town

I am sooo behind on posting.  I cannot even begin to describe how crazy our summer was and how busy we were!  So I'm going to catch up the best I can now...

A few weeks before school Essie and her BFF Lexie got to attend Safety Town.  It's a program put on by our local hospital and JA.  It was three days and they learned all about bicycle, bus, train, car safety along with so many other things.  It's set up in a local church and they actually build a little town in the gym.  Essie had so much fun and they even had a little graduation ceremony on the last day!

Essie's BirthDAY

I totally forgot to post about Essie's actual BirthDAY!  The night before we ate birthday cake pancakes and she opened her birthday pajamas.  Travis and I both had to work that day so we didn't get to take her out for lunch like we always do.  She did choose to go to Purple Cow for dinner.  We invited Lexie to go with us and they even sang Happy Birthday to her.  It was precious to see her little sweet face light up! 

Afterwards she chose to go bowling...we had such a blast!

Beach Vacay 2014

This year we got to go on our very first REAL beach vacation.  We went way back in June (the week we got out of school in fact!).  We set out Saturday afternoon after E's final T-ball game and headed on to Gulf Shores.

I found a great condo at The Beach Club at Fort Morgan and we LOVED it.  We didn't get there until midnight and then hubs and I went to Wal-Mart for groceries so we got in around 2 am.  The next morning came early and we couldn't wait to get on the beach.  Each day we pretty much had the same routine...wake up/eat breakfast and head to the beach.  Stay at the beach for awhile, hit the pool for a bit and then lunch.  We then would drive into town or hang out during the hottest part of the day and then end our day back at the beach/pool. 

 The girls loved shopping for souvenirs!  They loved this shark mouth!
The beach at sunset is now my happy place! I was obsessed with it!

 I loved sitting by the pool and reading. 

 Essie was obsessed with seashell hunting!  She found bag after bag of them.

 One of our favorite places was LuLu's ...the girls did the hamster balls and we saw dolphins while we waited. 

 We went crab-hunting at night...we were not fans!

Our last night we took family pics on the beach!

We had a blast and cannot wait to go back!  We made so many memories and are definitely beach folks now!
