mini vacation

We are headed out of town for a very mini vacation, like less than 24 hours type of vacation. Time to see some of my siblings tonight! Charlie is so so excited, he can't wait to leave!

Mornings around this neck

Our mornings are simple. After my hubby leaves early in the morning for work, Little Charlie wakes up and walks to my bedroom, opens the door, climbs in bed with me and we cuddle for a few minutes while I wake up. He then goes potty, puts on underwear, we go downstairs and eat breakfast. He is always in such a good, happy mood in the morning. He starts the day off right.

Early Bday Party

We had an early birthday party for Charlie III while Reba was still in town!  I know, this is a whole month early but it was worth it.  We had teriyaki chicken over rice with a few sides for dinner.  I made his favorite cake... chocolate pudding cake!  He knew how to blow out the candles without any help this time around and it amazes me how much they learn and grow in a year.  He got so many presents from Charlies family as well as our good friends Mitch and Angie Randolph.  Tons of cars and figurines, a new Toy Story sheet set for his bed and a Cars blanket.  I think his new FAVORITE toy is his big Woody!  He slept with it last night and has carried him around all morning!  It's the cutest thing!  He has never been so attached to a toy before!
Of course we had to play the famous Dellenbach name game to end our evening and it was hilarious!!  Moira, my mother in law is the funniest person to play the game with!  Lastly, we took family pictures of the people still standing at the end of the night!  Nate and his girlfriend had already left, Mitch and Angie had left too so this was the last of us!  I'm still deciding on if we need to have a 'friends' birthday party next month.  We will see!

Cafe Rio Playgroup

Yesterday I invited my friends and their kids over for a Cafe Rio lunch and playgroup!  Everyone brought a side for the salad and treats for the kids.  As you can see, there were SO many kids piled into our home!  It made me realize how much I want a playroom/bonus room/big basement for the kids to play in when we buy a home in the future.  Everywhere you walked you would be stepping over a child because there were so many of them!  I also must say, we didn't have any accidents... ( no coloring on walls, furniture, food on couches or carpet, etc.)  That is something I am always nervous about!
I love all of Charlie's little friends and especially love all of my friends in the ward!  It's great to have a strong group of friends that share your values, live in close proximity to you, have kids the same age, and that you connect with.  They are so important to me and I love them so much!

Stone Mountain family day

Favorite parts of the weekend:
Spending time with family
Checking off bucket list... driving in a covered bridge!!  It was beautiful!
Watching Charlie III go on the zipline
Getting some local bbq on the side of the road, literally!  We're in the SOUTH now!
Going up and down the skylift with Charles Sr.  He practically made everyone believe we were going to die!  Hilarious!!
Watching the company talent show!!  Again, hilarious

Ga Aquarium

I am so sorry I have been a slacker on this blog!!!  We have been having so much fun lately that I forgot to document it!  A few weeks ago my cute niece and nephew Gabby and Cameron stayed with us and we visited the aquarium.  This was mine and Charlie's first time at the GA aquarium and we LOVED it!  My SIL Reba, sister Leanna and her daughter Azaleia also joined us!  We went to all the exhibits, watched Dolphin Tales (aka super cheesy but the kids loved it!), and smuggled in some homemade cookies to munch on!  Leanna has a pass so I know we will be going more often!
