Well the family headed back down to Jekyll Island this year and we stayed at a new condo within the same resort space. The condo was great: clean, well furnished, and spacious. There were only two problems with the condo: 1. Only one bathroom, on the 2nd floor, 2. No area rugs, so cool tile [...]
On the road!
We booked a condo unit at the Villas by the Sea resort on Jekyll Island back in June, we felt that September was far enough away that we could plan ahead to take a small family vacation. Well we hit a few speed bumps along the way namely that Kellie would [...]
We spent the weekend hopping from one plan to another. Shopping on Friday, then on Saturday we spent the day at Randy’s for lil’ Connor’s birthday, onto to Sunday where we encountered the luxury of doing nothing til the late evening when we visited my Dad for a lil’cook out. It was a pleasant and a rare weekend that seemed to take it’s time, but when Monday rolled around it was an attempt to go to the Georgia Aquarium. [...]
So we celebrated my 32nd birthday on Monday and well I usually post an entry about the things I have learned over the past year. This year has felt more like maintenance than any significant personal growth, however my family growth has been tremendous! Kellie has been accepted and is attending a graduate Psychology program, [...]
The Dinky has officially turned 2 years old on May 13th, 2012! Transitioning from a baby to a wiggly toddler firmly entrenched in the terrible two’s has been completed. Her day might not have been perfect since the pouring rain derailed our plans, but Ripley had fun none the less. Happy birthday sweet girl! And [...]
Wow. May 10, 2010 was supposed to be the day she arrived. Chris was at work and I was home, swollen and 40 weeks pregnant waiting for the first sign (any sign!) of Ripley’s arrival. I had taken several long walks with the dogs on a hot, sunny 80 degree Georgia day to the point [...]
Took the kiddies to see the Easter Bunny at SouthLake Mall last week and it was definitely an adventure trying to maneuver and get a good picture with both Ripley and Liam. Ripley would smile, then not smile…. Liam seemed to keep sinking into the Bunny’s armpit.
The fun came after — Ripley did not [...]
We signed Ripley up for a toddler soccer program (SoccerTots) at Score Indoor Soccer facility in Fairburn. It gives her a chance to hang with some other little kids, play and run, run, run. It’s not competitive soccer by any means but they teach listening and coordination skills. And they still get to kick the [...]
There are some days I’m sure that both my husband and I must feel like we’re in a time warp. It was literally just the end of December, we welcomed our son to the world and then BOOM! Hello, month of March… thanks for sneaking up on us. January and February were a complete blur [...]
On 12-29-11 our little Liam Parker Templeman was born! We spent two days at Piedmont Newnan Hospital for delivery and recovery before coming home. So we’ve finally settled in a bit and things are becoming more routine by the day as lil’ Liam Parker Templeman joins our happy home! Grandpa has gone home but he [...]
