Big Boy Bedding

Now that we officially have a 2 year old, we are transitioning to the “Big Boy Room!” Our plan is to have him in the "Big Boy Room", Labor Day Weekend!
I have searched & searched & searched for the big boy bedding! Finally, we found the perfect bedding for our "All Star-Ball Lover! In addition, I will admit something I loved!

I ordered him the All Star bedding set from JoJo Designs. It is perfect for him to grow into. I did not want something that he would outgrow in a few years, so this is very fitting for our sports lover! We are putting him in the full size bed that is currently in our guestroom! I think he will be extremely excited to get into the new room! As you can see from the photo, he is in love with the comforter! I ordered it Monday and it arrived on Wed! I had it sitting on the couch for him when he woke up Thurs. When he saw it, he ran to it saying "Bas-et-ball-Shoot the ball, bay-ball!" Parker immediately pulled it off the couch and wrapped up in it on the floor!
My parents will be down for a visit when Sweet pea arrives! Therefore, I am going to put my dad to work! He is very handy and I have a HUGE list! One of the chores is for him to put up Bead board in Parker's room and I must not forget to mention the “Sports Ceiling Fan!” Therefore, the room will finally be complete in January! In the meantime, we have lots to do before Sweet pea arrives...biggest one being Parker into his big boy bed! Speaking of Big Boy, we had his 2 year check up today and he is growing TALL and staying the same in weight! He is 35 & 3/4 in. and in the (80 % ) and he is 27 lbs even. (40 %)! Looks like we will have a tall boy! We will post the photos of the Big Boy room as we gradually get moved in!
Off to put some Party bags together for his little Birthday Party tomorrow! :)

Camp BaYouCa & Parker's 2nd Birthday

We are back from our vacation to Family Camp @ Camp BaYouCa! Camp BaYouCa is special to Mike and me ~it is the camp we met at, so this was our first time to go as a family and introduce BaYouCa to Parker! We had a blast watching Parker explore and spending time with some of Mike's family members!
I am not sure how I shall sum up the MANY adventures.
Here is a list of some of the MANY adventures we experienced while on vacation!
We Stopped in MD on our way to NY to visit Uncle Brian & Aunt Courtney! We had a blast hanging out with them and celebrating Aunt Courtney's birthday.

  • Sunday, we attended Mike's Family Reunion on his Mom's side and participated in their version of "Parker Idol"
  • (Some of the Parker cousins being goofy in the pool )

  • Monday -Friday, We stayed in a cabin at Camp BaYouCa in 90+ degree heat and NO A.C. ! (Nevertheless, I survived it being 4 & 1/2 months Prego...with seven fans!)

    (Mike and his cousin Chad with their H.School friend, Shawn...(who met Parker for the first time).
  • We celebrated Parker's 2nd birthday during the week with the Family and had a special Elmo cake and lots of Elmo gifts!

(Celebrating with some of the family...he LOVED everyone singing to him)

(Officially 2 years old-taken on real birthday 8/20) (Smiling happily with Nene (as he calls her that now) and Pa-Pa) (Opening his gift from Grammy & Grandpa Clark...he LOVED the book all about trucks and it made noise!)

  • We had Parker's 2 year old photo shoot done at Camp, by a good friend of mine from College. Tiffany is the Assistant Directors Wife~...Check out her blog and work... (I will post his 2 year old photos when she gets them all edited!) Here are just a few of my favorites...

  • During Family Camp, we had to adopt a family secretly! The goal is that you pray for them daily and do little things for them! As a family, you are to give daily clues that hint who you are! We drew Mike's Aunt and Uncle, it was a BLAST to play it up, and we gave them clues that had nothing to do with us.
  • Mom R and I snuck off and got Pedicures during the week-so nice and relaxing!

  • Mike and his Aunt Bonnie participated in the Dinner Theater at Camp. To make matters funnier during the play-Mike had a major crush on her!

  • On the way home-we spent the night in Roanoke, VA. to stay with our friends from Camp, the Abrams!
  • Mike learned how to Wake Board in VA!
  • We got out on a double date with the Abrams (no kids) and had to much fun!

  • We traveled a total of 16 hours... 2 weekends in a row! After all the hours and PACKED Car-we've discovered that we must now purchase a mini-van in the future! ~We have outgrown the Rav 4! (Sigh...I love my little SUV!)

    I am not sure if we are more happy to have the A.C. back or be out of the car!
    Over all -being away was a refreshing, relaxing and made us appreciate each other more and appreciate all that God has done for us and given us!
