The one with Fay

So, we haven't been to the beach all summer...for some reason we had more things to do! :) My parents have a timeshare in Panama City Beach for this week every year. Maddox, Izzy, and I headed out Saturday morning around 9:30 despite the fact that Tropical Storm Fay was on its way directly to the pan handle of Florida. This was against ALL of Izzy's common sense, but for some reason I won out. It rained a little on us going down, but not too bad. Once we got there however, they had the double red flags up...NO getting in the beach! Also, the pool was closed because of the weather. We didn't understand this at all!! It is an indoor pool, but nevertheless, it was closed. I think that I failed to mention that it stopped raining, and the sun was beginning to shine!! We went to my brother's hotel and swam in their pool! It didn't rain again on us until Monday morning...after Izzy left! I did get to have a big I told you so and the weekend turned out to be so much fun! Here are a few pictures that we took of Big Mad! He did enjoy the pool, but not so much the float.

Here is a picture of Maddox and Izzy with the crab float...I think the problem with it was that Izzy kept saying that Maddox had crabs! He didn't like that!

Here he is tuckered out from swimming...we put him in his tent and he slept until we woke him to go upstairs...this is despite the indoor pool with all the kids screaming!! :)

Here is one of him sleeping with PawPaw...I promise he did more than just sleep, but this was SO cute!
and one with MawMaw...asleep again! :)

This one was so sweet of his feet in the sand

and one in the water...even though we weren't suppossed
to be in it...we are such rule breakers!!!

We are planning on going back this weekend with Izzy's parents...we now get to battle Gustav!!!! Two weekends in a row...Two hurricanes in a row!! I'll let you know how it all goes!
Until next time...

The one where we are trying again!!!

Well, here we go again! NOT trying for another baby...I just realized how that title sounded. I'm talking about the blog! I'm trying this one more time. I've got to get better, because I'm getting fussed at on every end to keep this blog up to date. I was tired of looking at the boring colors, so with the help of Louise Jones, I found one I think I like! I'm getting tutored on how to post everything...I just get bummed looking at everyone's great looking site!

With all that said, I want to start off trying to post some pictures of Maddox. For some great ones from our wonderful friend and photographer, Lindsey Bagwell, check out her page. Also, don't forget to check out her website (the address is on her blog).

Here is a couple of pictures of Maddox...we hope! :)

Yay...we did it! This is one of his great onesie that I got at Ross for $3.50! I was so pumped!

OK...I like this layout better! This is one in his overalls ready to help PawPaw in the country! :)

and now, I like the small size better! :) This is him ready for church!

Being a Mom is the most wonderful thing in the world!!!! I'm going to go now, but I PROMISE I'll get on again soon to update...with more pictures!!

That's all for now, hope all is well with you!!! Until next time...
