it has been a few years since we have had our pictures taken with the kids, so i figured it was time. they turned out pretty good, i think.

a couple of weeks ago, i had to go in to work on a saturday for a few hours, so i took gianna with me. she was excited to go and she was great. she entertained herself and was really happy to walk down the hallway and grab some strawberries.
then, we went over to the spa to pick something up and she got her nails painted by miss krista. so fun!
that afternoon, we headed to the the taste of bluffton festival and the kids showed off their hula hoop skills.
we saw jackson at the golf cart display
and we met up with jake too. he even got to come back to our house to spend the night!
archer and anderson came over too and we officially had a full house!
gianna was bummed that we didn't find the face painting booth at the festival, so we tried to do it at home.
i think she liked it...😀

for such a tiny girl, gianna sure does have a lot of stuff! and her closet has been bugging me for a while now. it's super small and she's got a lot crammed in there. so, one night when the boys were away, i put her to bed in my room and got to work!
this is what it looked like before. her hamper is crammed in to the left and her suitcase was behind it. her hanging organizer had been up since she came home from the hospital (thanks mom!) and it was starting to rip at the seams. she had two bins of off season clothes and other random things on the right hand side and a couple fabric bins on top of those. then, her uniforms and dresses and jackets are all hanging on the bar on either side of the organizer. on the top shelf, she has sleeping bags and our pool bag and her christmas tree and decorations...etc. see what i mean? crammed!
so, i emptied it all out!
i started to build shelves for each side, but wanted the first shelf to be high enough for her hamper to fit underneath.
on the left side, i only built two shelves, but they each got a bar under for hanging items.
and the right side got 4 shelves.
we picked up a new hanging organizer because it was really working well for her before. it makes it easy for her to pick out her clothes because she can see them, they aren't hidden in drawers.
much better now!

it's that time of year again...baseball season!
i figured i would freshen up the wreath this year since both roman and gianna are playing baseball, we are basically living at the fields and showering at the house.
gianna is on a coach pitch team this year and is really enjoying it so far.
roman and his buddies are at it again, but this year, they are in the kid pitch league, so they are all trying their hand at pitching...and catching too.
this is roman's rec team, the destructors!
for his first game of the season, his girl mady was playing softball on the field next to his at the same time! she's quite the little ball player and we love seeing her at the fields!
gianna got to try a little catching too.
but mostly, she loves playing on the team with her classmate, kalyn. and for the snacks. duh.
gianna's team is called the sharks.
watch me swing, mom!
even aunt maddy and mimi got to see one of her games when they were down visiting!
