Madalyn 13 months

Madalyn is in the climbing stage right now. She is climbing on everything! She has also moved from walking, to running. She still thinks dirt and sand taste wonderful and still loves her Mama the best!

Happy Easter!

Well, I made an attempt made to get a nice picture of Madalyn smiling in her Easter dress, standing or sitting still...however, no such luck! Happy Easter!

Yes, I'm getting ready to run!

I will look anywhere but at you Mom!

What a cheesy grin!

An Afternoon at Furman

This weekend we went to Greer to see my family for Easter. It was such a nice day Saturday, that we decided to go to Furman University to feed the ducks. Well...you can't feed the ducks anymore, but you could feed the turtles! We had a nice time just walking around the lake. Furman is such a beautiful campus.

We had a fun afternoon!

I Stand Amazed How Marvelous By Chris Tomlin

I hope you and your family have a blessed Easter. Remember and reflect on why we celebrate Easter.  It's not His death, but the fact that my Lord and Savior rose on that third day...HE's ALIVE! How marvelous is His love for me  and you. If you don't know Him, I pray that you will this Easter.

Easter Buddies

Yesterday, Mrs. Katie and I had the idea of taking pictures of Madalyn and Hunter together since they had matching shirts. Let's just say it was a great idea....trying to get these two to be still, both look at the camera, and smile...well, I think Mrs. Katie and I were worn out! We may have gotten a few good shots, however, Madalyn wasn't wanting to smile yesterday, but that's nothing new.

Let's have an Easter Egg Hunt!

1st Trip to the Riverbanks Zoo

Madalyn and I met Noelle, Elizabeth, and Penelope at the Riverbanks Zoo this morning for a fun day at the Zoo. This was Madalyn's first time at the Zoo and she had a great time! No, she couldn't tell me, but her facial expressions and all the "ooohhh's!" that I heard today, tells me so. Here are some pictures of our Zoo adventure today.

The Bears were still sleeping when we got there.

Blue Macaw




This is who Madalyn was "ooohhh!' at!

She's not too sure about getting her picture made.

Elephants were drinking water


Since Madalyn couldn't hold on by herself, I had to jump in the picture

Madalyn and Me

This isn't the prettiest bird we saw today, but since he was showing off, I thought I would take his picture.

Elizabeth feeding the giraffes...they have long tongues don't they?

We got to fed the giraffes

Ooohh! Giraffe!

Ooohhh! I love animals and the Zoo!

Oooohhh! Penguins!

The penguins were putting on a show today...diving and hopping around.

I always love the colors of the flamingos!


Howler money swinging


So impressive this animal..the King of the Jungle

I believe it's nap time for the king of the jungle.

Elizabeth rode the carousel while Madalyn....

Nap time at the Zoo

We had a wonderful day! On our way home with a little piece of the Zoo, a lion.
