We are currently living in Knoxville Tennessee. I am a stay at home mom and absolutley love hanging out with Makai (age 5) and Beck (age 3). Ike is in his 2nd year of Oral Surgery Residency at the Univerity of Tennessee Hospital. We miss all of our friends and family, but enjoy the opportunity to meet new friends and see new places. This blog is just a little piece of our every day life here in Knoxville.

Princess Mouse Ballerina

Oh how Makai loves ballet! She was so excited about her new mouse costume. She also has a swimsuit for her tap number Splish Splash I was Takin' a Bath. Her recital is coming up in a few weeks and she can't wait to preform. It so much fun to watch her. I love having a girl!

Seven Months Down a Few More to Go!

My tummy has doubled in size over the last month. We are expecting a baby girl in July! Beck and Makai both wanted a sister so they are thrilled. Ike and I are both way excited too. Should be a fun and super hot summer!

Lovin' the Summertime!

This hot and humid weather called for a day at the beach (the Cove a river here in Tennessee). The kids got some new water and sand toys and had a blast with their friends Jack, Mick and Miles. I just love this warm weather!

What a great kickoff to Spring! We had an awesome day enjoying the rides and sunshine. We got soaked on some of the rides but it was so hot it felt good. Beck took a nap in the stroller while Makai got to go on some of the "big roller coasters." We met up with Clint, Jamie and Livy which was a lot of fun. It was a great day!

The Cove

We had a really fun day at the Cove. We packed a picnic and enjoyed playing in the water and with the sand. Love this Spring weather!

Easter Pics

We had a fun Easter with a few families in our ward. We had a yummy dinner and a fun egg hunt. We dyed eggs and Diesel hopped up on the table and ate six of them shells and all! Ike was on call so we missed not having him around, but it was still a fun day.

One Cool Dog!

Diesel is seriously the coolest dog ever. He is a puppy trapped in an over sized body. He loves to wrestle, play fetch, run, and snuggle. We took him to a dog park so he could run around with other dogs and he loved it. We also took him to the Cove and he splashed around in the water chasing after ducks. He is so much fun!

Our Little Soccer Star

Here are a few pictures of Makai playing soccer. She says she hustles really fast! She does pretty good and gets better each game. She's a little intimidated by the other girls, but she goes after the ball and can kick it really hard. She still likes ballet better, but I think soccer is growing on her.

Happy Birthday Little Buddy!

Beck had such a fun birthday. All day he kept saying "be nice to me it's my birthday." He loved playing with all his friends. His favorite game is "dinosaur, dinosaur, bug (duck, duck, goose). He had a bug/dinosaur birthday. He is such a fun kid and has the best personality. He loves more than anything to tease, punch and shoot air guns. He loves his big sister Makai and is excited to have a new baby sister. He loves cucumbers, apples, fruit snacks and chicken nuggets. His favorite color is orange and blue. He loves all sports, preschool and watching movies. He loves to be outside running around, riding bikes, playing with friends and his buddy Diesel. He's so much fun to be around and he always keeps us laughing. We sure love you!!
