Anna's first bath and her visit to Aunt Heather's house

Anna after her first sponge bath since being home. I had the honor of giving her a sponge bath. She did really well. She loves the purple pacifier. Anna and I. She is soo sweet.
Nick and Joel posing with Anna.
Miss Anna. We love you so much! It is so nice to live so close to Tony, Mary and Anna. We can visit anytime.

Annabelle Dylan Sims

Sorry for the delay in posting pictures of Anna. Here she is minutes after birth. I was so fortunate to be in the room when she was born. Thanks Mary and Tony. Mary right after delivery. It's tough work!
Tony after the delivery. He did an awesome job!
Anna's first visit to Aunt Heather's house. She loves her carseat.
Joel loves Anna. He wanted to hold her as soon as he saw her. He did a very good job!

Joel was very worn out. So much that he fell asleep while chewing his food. It was hysterical!
I had to keep waking him up so he wouldn't choke on his food. He saw the camera and tried to smile.
Nick snacking on some popcorn on our way home. He wouldn't let anyone else have any. It was funny
Joel eat his fun dip
Drew waiting patiently to get home. We had no air condition on our way down and back from South Carolina. The boys did an excellent job, considering it was 90 degrees in the van at some point in the trip. It was a bit miserable at times.
The mermaid at one of the restaurants we ate at. The boys were really taken with her. She is in the pool for 4-6 hours at a time. Yikes!
The boys outside one of the calabash buffets we ate at. Joel was really in awe that there was a giant lobster on top of the van.
The boys haning out with the mermaid
Nick really enjoying his corn on the cob

Snack time! Yum!
Nick loved the water. Drew and Joel playing in the sand. We went to the beach every morning and the went back to the pool to play. They really enjoyed going to the beach. Drew had a hand at boogie boarding. He really did well.

Here are some pictures from our vacation to Myrtle Beach and the big cyclone water slide for the boys. They are having a great summer! They love to be outside. Drew and Nick are loving the water. Joel is just as happy to walk around the pool and watch the boys swim. I just can't believe how fast my boys are growing. They are such a blessing. I'm so thankful God has blessed my life so abundantly. Enjoy the photos.

Long overdue

Okay, sorry it has been awhile since I posted. We have been busy since my last post, but really who isn't busy when you have kids. It seems like I get behind on everything, LAUNDRY and BLOGGING.

So anyways, let me catch you all up. I will have to update pictures tonight. We just celebrated Nicholas, my youngest sons, 2nd birthday. I can't believe he is 2. We had an awesome time celebrating his birthday and my husbands 30th birthday party. We bought a cyclone water slide from toys r us and the kids and Dave had an awesome time on it. The yard took a hard hit, but is doing okay. :)
We also went on vacation to Mrytle beach for a week. I will post pictures soon. Okay, so I have to get going because my sister and her boys just arrived.
