The one with the baby at 6 months old...

I love my little Jamison Parker.

By day we call him Mr. Smiley. 
And often at times at night he is Little Stinker. 


He loves, loves being around his family. 
Pretty much our center of attention. 
I forgot how cute babies can act. 
And how fun they can be. 

Anyhow, while Heidi was taking our family pictures last month she snapped some 6 months ones of our little man. 

He had just woken up here and was trying to figure out the outside world, the big camera, etc.. :)

 Hand in mouth. Thats the way to go right now!

How time is just a flying..
He is now over 7 months and starting to crawl..
I'm not ready for the "baby on the loose" stage!
But ready or not, here we go!

We are family...

 Love your family. Spend time, be kind & serve one another. Make no room for regrets. Tomorrow is not promised & today is short.
 Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. – Marc Brown

 More than Santa Claus, your sister knows when you’ve been bad and good. – Linda Sunshine

 Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.  ~Author Unknown

 Family life is a bit like a runny peach pie — not perfect but who's complaining? ~Robert Brault
Parenthood: The state of being better chaperoned than you were before marriage.
-- Marcelene Cox

It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.
-- Joyce Maynard

Family ~ Where life begins and love never ends.

Thanks to Heidi for capturing our family a few weeks ago. 
The older i get..
The more blessed i feel. 
I love my little family!

Hilton Head 2013

Last weekend we took our mini family vacation to Hilton Head Island. 
A wonderful place for a family vacation.
We love it there and hope some day we can spend more then 3 nights there!

Of course going with 3 children. 
And 3 of whom are not feeling the best and coughing all.night.long. 
Puts a whole new look on vacations. 
But along with the hard work that goes with it.. 
There is something relaxing about it it as well... :)

Mr. Jamison.
"Like, whatever. They say the beach is fun and then just make me sit here in the stroller with this winter hat (of all things) on my head."

Carter is finally loving the waves.. And we still need to work on Brooklyn.. :)

Melt me. 

He loves, loves, LOVES the beach!! 

Hilton Head is full of biking trails. We always love to rent and ride bikes while there. 

 Carter did fairly well at totally trusting his mom to not topple him over! :) 
There was a couple times he freaked out.. :)

Of course doing it this way always reminds of you the muscles you may or may not have in your legs..:)

Baby's first time to sit in the sand and water..


He loved splashing in the water...
  And eating his share of sand... :)

We got to be there on Mother's Day... 
Love my kids.
Blessed to be their mommy..

 Carter was our photographer for a little.. 
"That's a gooood one guys"  ..He said after taking this picture... :)

Walking along the beach in the evening... Stopping to pose and this is what happens when...
The Can't See Um's Take over.. :)
These pictures crack me up.

Just doing some other touristy stuff... 

Brooklyn babying her little brother..

Curtis and the two oldest climbed to the top of a lighthouse...
 The view from the top of the lighthouse.

Eating outdoors....

Having fun on the trees.. any little boy's dream..:)

What a fun, memory filled weekend. 

Have you booked/planned your family vacation yet?
If not then please, please plan one today (or real soon!)!! 
Everyone needs a vacation.
That's a must in life.
