We took an anniversary/family trip to Destin, Florida at the beginning of the month. It is absolutely beautiful! I decided that we are beach people and that we need to live on the beach. Our only problem is we'd have to put a tent on the lot we'd buy! We had so much fun and I'm ready to go back or move there tomorrow! We found fun things to do each day....a science museum, Destin Commons, Fuddpuckers, Gulfarium, The Race Track, and more....ate good food (too bad I hate seafood), shopping, swimming each night at the hotel, and spent LOTS of time on the beach! We tried out a new beach each day! The water was crystal clear, you could go out a hundred yards and be knee deep, and the sand was sugar white and so soft! The kids LOVEDDDDD the beach. It was fun to sit back and just watch them play and have fun! I highly recommend to anyone who can to try out Destin!
Make sure you go through the entire slide show, or you'll miss out on something!

We enrolled Lainey in a private preschool at a local church this year. She has sooooo been looking forward to it! She could not wait for her first day of school (the day after Labor Day).
So I walked Lainey into her class, to help her get all settled. She could have cared less! When I left, she didn't even hear me or look my way. She was already ready to start school. When I picked her up, she was really excited and happy and said she had fun. As we were getting in the car, she get really upset. She was like, "Mommy, but Mrs. N$#*@^* didn't give me any homework. I don't have any homework to do." I told her that was okay, but she was ADAMANT and VERY DISAPPOINTED about the fact that she was suppossed to have (in her mind) gotten homework and wanted it and didn't have any. She reminded me in a very worried and sad voice about 5 times in our short drive home. Then later, we were talking about school again later and she looks at me and says, "Mommy, I don't want to go to recess tomorrow." I said, "you don't? why not (thinking something had happened you know)?" And she gets this annoyed tone in her voice and says, "Weelllll (huuu), it just takes tooooo long and you get all hot and sweaty and stuff!" Go figure! I knew she liked learning, but enough to give us recess (it's only like 10 minutes!).

At the end of August we ventured up to the Little Rock Zoo for the first time. School had already started, so for the most part, we felt like we had the zoo to ourselves. I wasn't sure if we'd make it through the entire zoo being August-hot-humid and all, but we did it and the kids had a blast!

On the first of August, I celebrated my 31st birthday. I used to remember looking at different people who were 31 when I was like 18, 19, 20 years old and thinking to myself how old that was! I still can't believe I'm in my 30's. I feel like I just graduated from high school a few years ago! Anyways, it was Nate's weekend on at work so we celebrated a few days early by going down to Shreveport and going shopping. Lainey wanted to buy me a new dress and Nate got me a new cell phone. We went to the Boardwalk and walked around, rode the trolley and the merry-go-round and ate some yummy food at Joe's Crab Shack.
