Still Here...

Yes, I'm still here. Life has just been incredibly busy. Summer and its outrageous heat has arrived. I just heard on the news that hurricane season kicks off in less than 6 hours; yuck.

I took Hayden to visit my sister who lives 45 min. away today; tomorrow I have to make a trip to Mobile, visit the grandparents, and speak at church; Thursday, we're going to the aquarium with my sister and niece and nephew and then Nana is keeping all 3 kids so the sis and I can go for a night away (the husbands have to work Friday, so Mom is keeping the kids for all of us); Friday is pick up Hayden and haul stuff to my grandmother's for our yard sale. Tired yet? And have I mentioned that I've been purging my house so it's an absolute wreck?! I've surfaced cleaned, but the deep cleaning is waiting until I can find my guest room and closets again.

Oh, I forgot to mention that we took Hayden to the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola this past Sunday. He loved it! I am waiting until after we visit the aquarium to post pictures from everything.

Hayden fun facts of recent:
-We don't eat pizza as much as some might think, but it's definitely Hayden's favorite food and he asks for it all.the.time!
-He can sing "This is the Stuff" by Francesca Battistelli with me (pretty much word for word!)
-This past weekend Hayden found himself all wet after playing in my parents' water fountain in their garden; my dad calmly told him, "No, no. Don't play in the water." This is all he's said since Saturday! Why can't he remember this well when we tell him not to ride the dog or throw toys?!
-He's fascinated with lining up everything he can get his hands on. My kitchen table is covered with rows of cars, trucks, and trains.
-He flirts unashamedly with pretty girls.
-He loves the letter U!
