Fun weekend in Hot Springs

Last week we all went to Hot Springs for the weekend. Pops was super excited because he got a new fishing boat however he didn't get to put it in the water all weekend ;(. The coolest thing happened right when we got there. We were all sitting on the deck when all of a sudden we saw not one but 6 beautiful yellow monarch butterfly. They flew all around us. It was so amazing. I felt Mamie's presence with us during that happy evening on the deck.

Saturday Brit, Jason, Taylor and I met up with Taylor's brother Brian his wife Ashleigh and their sister Ashley at the races. We had a great time visiting and losing money ;)

Sunday was so beautiful. Taylor and I decide to stroll downtown Hot Springs with Burke and the Goose. There were so many people down there. I guess since it was spring break. Burke enjoyed lounging back in his stroller with his feet propped up and watching all of the people pass by.

We spent the evening over at Drew and Ashley's house with Taylor's family. Burke loved the spaghetti. Well he loved to throw it and rub it on his head. He got to see all of his cousins. Jack (Brian and Ashleigh's oldest) surprised me at how much he liked to play with Burke. Burke loved it!!

It was a great weekend

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
