Where the wind comes sweeping down the plain....

Hadley took her first road trip to Tuttle, Oklahoma. Don't waste your time looking for it on a map, its not listed. For peace of mind, its about 30 minutes outside of Oklahoma City. Despite location, we had a blast. With 16 total hours of driving time, Hadley slept about 15 total hours. She was a dream to road trip with. Thankfully. It was such a blessing to get out of Memphis and visit with missed family members. Hadley got to see her great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and great friends. Below is a picture of Hadley being adored by her poppy. Her nanny is not pictured because she, if I had to guess, is in the kitchen preparing for the multitudes that stopped by to visit. Ahh, the joy of small towns!

Nanny, your delicious meals were very much appreciated. Thank you! I tried to add another photo of Hadley and her great cousins Drake, Alexis, and Abbey, but obviously that didn't work out. (thats what you get for stolen internet access) Trust me they are precious. Thanks to everyone for making our visit fabulous! We miss you already.

Happy Father's Day!

Why Hadley loves her daddy....
1. He teaches her how to kill squirrels (note: I said teaches. Matt hasn't actually killed the vegetable, fruit, herb eating squirrels yet - Matt: 0 vs. squirrels: alot)

2. She thinks its funny when he keeps changing her diaper, bathing her, & changing her clothes because he thinks she smells like poop and he can't figure out why. Come to find out while he was changing her diaper, she had pooped on him! HILARIOUS!

Most importantly...
3. He's a great man! As we speak, Matt is outside in the 101 degree heat working on a deck to bring home some extra cash for the summer!

We can't forget about Hadley's Papa Butch and Papa David. They are equally as good grandpas as they are dads! Thanks for everything you do. Happy Father's Day! Love you guys!

Bronzing Beauty

Thanks to our dear friend Becky, Hadley can now get her tan on! Becky bought her the proper sunbathing attire Hadley is sporting in the picture. I wasn't exactly sure how a day at the pool would go with an infant. As shown above, she was adorable and it couldn't have gone better. What I thought would be a longer drive to get there, than actual time spent chilling poolside, turned into a great day with the girls. Hadley was hooked up with an outdoor fan, shade, and a big comfy towel for her to sleep on and most importantly poolside attention whenever she woke up. Great for mom as well because I got to spend some much needed time out in the sun! Sweet summer time!
