Fun at Fairpark!

The twins had a great time at the splashpad at Fairpark yesterday. Fairpark is a district of town with restaurants, new businesses, the courthouse, etc. They have a great fountain that is free for the public to enjoy.

Sights of Summer!

"Khaki Rollers!"
This haybale pictures was stemmed from one of the funniest things I have ever heard my child say... This field is about 2 blocks from our house, and we pass it everytime we live the neighborhood. One day, Harrison said, "Khaki Rollers!" I instantly thought my child was brilliant. He isn't that keen on his colors, and we are not even close to classifying a shade as "khaki." But when he said "khaki rollers," I thought he meant the color of the hay and the "shape" of the bale, which would 'roll.' It wasn't until I told Kathy (AKA: Khaki,) about this that it all came to light. When Travis drops the twins off at Kathy's on Thursday morning for their Mother's Day Out carpool, she always has big rollers in her hair. Now, we have a complete story of the haybales and the khaki (hair) roller!!!
Tupelo Buffalo Park
I snapped this picture as I drove by the Buffalo Park. It is about 3/4 of a mile from our house. If you are ever in town, it is a neat place to visit. On a daily basis, the twins are able to see and identify a variety of animals, including buffalo (or buckos, as they call it,) camels, and zebras. If you look closely, you can see a buffalo resting in the shade (top of photo.)

Sizzlin' Summer Fun!
The following pictures were taken this weekend as the twins played in their new sprinkler that Carol gave to them for their birthday. What a great gift!!!

Saying Goodbye....

We will miss you, Jo-Lynn!!
Today has been a sad day because I had to say goodbye to a very special friend. It has been a delight to know Jo-Lynn, Matt, Sarah, and Will. They have touched so many lives in the past three years while living in Tupelo.
We will miss you, sweet friend. I know that you will be a blessing to others in Arkansas, just as you have been to us.
We love you!!

All Smiles... Our First Trip to the Dentist!

Yesterday the twins had their first visit to the dentist. They call it a Happy Visit, and do only as much as the patient allows. Hailey and Harrison wouldn't get in the chair alone, but they would while in my lap. Also, they were very interested in the prophy cup (tooth polisher,) the mirror, the water squirter, and Mr. Thirsty (suction.) They even let the hygienist tickle their teeth with the prophy. They left with lots of treats in tow, including a new toothbrush, a dinosaur flosser, a toy, a sticker, and a balloon!
Super Smiles!

We Did It!!
