We took the girls to the City Pool today and these are some pictures I snapped that I thought I would share. Carmen and her family met us there. I don't know if the girls or Keith had more fun.

Today was great! Grammie and I spent the entire day together by ourselves. We went first to Carmack's to get the meat we needed for the upcoming beach trip. Then we had to stop by the Thrift Store to see if they had any deals. After that we headed to Sam's to test some of the samples (it was getting lunch time by this point) and pick up some more snacks for the beach trip. After not getting full on the samples we headed to Chick-fil-a. Next we went shopping for swim suits. We both found 2 a piece. (Grammie you were right, Keith loves the leopard print one!) I also got a new white shirt for the "beach picture". Finally Grammie and I went to get our pedicures and manicures for Mother's Day! We even got our eyebrows done. This is something that I would not normally spoil myself with but Keith and the girls gave it to me for Mother's Day. We got Grammie a pedicure and manicure for her Mother's Day. It was great to get to spend some one on one time with Mom. Most of the time we get to spend together includes chasing the girls. This time it was about us. We all need this from time to time.
Madison, Allison, and Keith went to the pool while we were gone. They were all tired when we got home. After Grammie left, Madison was in the room when I was folding up some laundry (yes back to real life) and she told me that she missed me today and she wanted me to spend tomorrow with her. She is so sweet!
Believe it or not, school it out! Yesterday I took a kindergartner and a fourth grader to school, but I picked up a first and fifth grader! It seems like time is just speeding up. Yesterday Allison reminded me that she will be able to drive by herself in 6 years and 1 month. What a shock to my system. Madison got all E's (excellent) on her report card and Allison got all A's and B's. The best thing is that she had all 3's (the best) on conduct. We have been struggling with Allison this last nine weeks, but it seems to have paid off. I am so proud of both of them.
I better get to bed, we have to be at church tomorrow at 8 AM to greet people. Love to all!

Well, summer is finally on the way. The girls have just 5 more days of school and they can not contain themselves. We have signed both the girls up for Camp Kaleidoscope with the Auburn Parks and Rec. They will be going for 5 weeks. Pop and Gran Anne have agreed to keep the girls for us the first week school is out. They do not have camp until we get back from our beach trip. Paw Paw and Grammie have agreed to watch the girls the two weeks prior to school starting. We are so lucky to have help. Momma Joy and Grandaddy Jim would help if they were closer. We just have a hard time sending them away for a week at a time.
Momma Joy and Grandaddy Jim have been through an ordeal the last week. A tornado hit Macon Mother's Day morning and their neighborhood is in rumbles. They did not have power for 5 days and they did have some roof and auto damage. I thank God that Keith and I were scheduled to work at church on Mother's Day or we would have been in Macon during all of this. We are just glad that they are all safe.
Allison had a softball game this morning. They won 15 to 3! Allison had a great hit. She has been in somewhat of a hitting slum the last couple of games, however we think this is over. Madison loves going to the games to play with Taylor! We only have 2 more games! Her team is in a tie for 2nd place out of 5 teams. We all seem to enjoy the experience even if we do complain about it from time to time.
We are counting down the beach trip! 15 days to go! We are staying at a new house this year. Grammie and Paw Paw went to see it about 2 months ago. Each family will still have their own room, however, Keith and I will get a room separate from Allison and Madison. The house has 3 stories and is on the beach. We are still worried about how cold the water will be this year. We normally go at the end of July! I do not care! Just to be off work for 1 week with no worries is good enough for me.
Baylee is growing like a weed. She weighs 29 lbs. She scared us last week. She decided to swallow one of Madison's no show socks. We called Pop asap. He told us to give her some fiber capsules and hope it "passes". After 2 days of solid worry, Keith and the girls took her to the vet to be x-rayed. No sock was seen and we were told just to wait and call if she started vomiting. On Monday at Allison's softball game I spoke with Pop and Dr. Pete and they believed that it was still in her stomach. On Tuesday when I got off work, I gave Baylee some hydrogen peroxide to make her vomit. After about 2 minutes, the sock came up! I can not believe that it stayed in her stomach for 5 days! She is all better now, however the girls are not wearing socks now.
Well I better go. Keith and I have to work at church tomorrow and the girls have to get in the bed soon. We are planning to take them to Holly and Craig's house tomorrow after church to swim.
Love and kisses to everyone.
