A Look Back at Easter...

Our friend Dylan just gave us a copy of a video he made of our worship service on Easter morning. Here are a couple of highlights from that morning:

Mrs. Jenna and the Choir sang "Let the Veil Down." Great song!

And just before Bro. Mike was going to preach, Audrey and Abby's Choir helped everyone get their wiggles out!

Thanks, Dylan, for sharing your video!

Last stop before home...






After the wedding and the beach trip, we came back to GA to see GrandDaddy (Clay's Dad) ordained into the ministry. After the service, the family gathered at Chad & Allison's house for pizza & visiting. The kids had a ball & we all had a good visit together.

Amy and Jeff's Wedding







Amy and Jeff's wedding was just beautiful and (with a little help from some adorable flower girls) entertaining, too! After all, it isn't every day you get to see your husband marry his sister!!! (Ha ha! Clay performed the wedding ceremony.) Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day, guys. Here are some pics of the happy couple and the circus around them...

Buddy Baseball














Yesterday, the twins had their first Buddy Baseball game. The team is sponsored through Hope Landing (where they get physical, occupational and speech therapy) and the Boys Club. Each child has a buddy who helps them play the game. Abby was especially attentive to the game. Audrey LOVED playing in the dirt! Both girls had a lot of fun and enjoyed a Sonic milkshake afterward!

More Beach Pics






Here's a few more pictures of the beach trip and the beautiful families we enjoyed it with...

Beach Time!






We had a BLAST at the beach! Our family plus the Hooks and Hailey families (that's 6 adults and 10 kids!) stayed at a condo at Orange Beach. The men took the kids to see the Blue Angels in Pensacola and we all went to The Track for some race-car fun. We caught jellyfish and rode waves & had a wonderful time with our friends!

Our First Summer Trip






The Owens family has just returned from our first Summer excursion. This included time visiting our family in GA (and Addison getting a tooth pulled!) and participating in Amy (Clay's sister) and Jeff's wedding (ALL of us--it was a RIOT! We love you Aunt Amy & Uncle Jeff!). From there we went to Gulf Shores, AL for some fun in the sun! The girls loved the beach & had a great time, but after two and a half weeks away, we were all ready to be home in our own beds. These are some pictures of the fun we had at Nonni and Dunka's house.

Pre-K Graduation


"It's off to Kindergarten!" Although Audrey and Abby didn't fully understand the concept of school promotion, the graduation ceremony was cute, nonetheless. Here the twins are with their teacher (who was also chosen Teacher-of-the-Year), Kristi Gunter. Audrey and Abby will surely miss her this Fall, but hopefully Adrienne will manage to get in her class!

Blessed with so much!
