I really never meant to quit using my blog, it just kinda happened. I guess life just got busy but I started thinking that I never did an update for my Parker for his birthday.
Parker chose a football party for his birthday this year and for some reason he was insistent on having it at our house. We just had a few boys over (and Ava of course!) They ate pizza and cake and ice cream, smashed a pinata and played a new football game on the Wii.
Parker is such a sweet boy and I can not wrap by head around him turning 5. He will start kindergarten in the fall! HOw is this possible?? It seems like yesterday we were driving back and forth to Huntsville and Birmingham constantly PRAYING that God would bless us with a little baby. Boy did he answer those prayers!!
Parker is in the Pre K class at Early arts and he is in Ms. Belynda's class. His best buddies at school are Edward and George. I love watching them play together and I am heartbroken they will all be going to different schools this fall.
Parker is still a momma's boy and I love it! I hope that never changes. He loves sports, playing with friends, playing and bothering his brother, and playing the Wii and games on his phone.
He is still a picky eater. His favorite foods right now are cheese dip and peanut butter. He would eat that everyday if I let him.
I think that Parker will be tall like the Greenhaw's. He is in the 90% for height. He's growing like a weed.
Parker Holt Greenhaw,
Mommy, daddy, and Preston love you more than you will ever know!!!

July 3rd we loaded the van and headed down to the beach. Chad's parents were in Panama City so we drove down to spend a few days with them before we headed over to Orange Beach to spend the week with my parents and brother and Shea.
Sadly, Panama City was pretty much a bust because is RAINED the ENTIRE time we were there. Parker was so ready to plan on the beach but instead we were stuck inside. Preston had gotten sick a day or two before we left with a cold and ear infection so we just hung out with his parents inside and let Preston have some rest.
The unit where his parents were staying had a golf cart so that provided LOTS of entertainment during the rainy days. All the boys, including Chad, left the beach ready to purchase our own!
After our visit in Panama City we drove over to Gulf Shores to meet my parents on Saturday.( My brother and Shea came Tuesday night.)
Unfortunately, we battled lots of rain this week as well but it was not a total wash out and we did have some nice days scattered throughout the week. Preston was actually sicker by this time so he spend lots of time in the condo. Poor guy..
The Manchester's were down at the same time so we took advantage and met up at Adventure Island. The arcade was a big hit and the go cart races were pretty heated!
Before we went to the beach, Parker was obsessed with getting a sharks tooth necklace because Edward got one when he went a few weeks before. Of course he wore it once and hasn't even thought of it since. That's $10 down the drain. :)
GeeBee and Pops with the boys
Waiting to eat at LuLu's can be boring.
Cute little sandy toes.
Until next time Orange Beach!

Visiting a zoo is on our summer bucket list so I decided that we should load up and head to the Memphis Zoo. This was actually our second zoo trip of the summer because we went to the Indianapolis zoo two weeks ago when we went to visit our friends.
I hadn't been to the Memphis zoo since I was a little girl so I didn't really know much about it. I think that I get as excited as the kids. I love me a zoo! It's a big place and it was hot but we still had a really good time. I didn't take many pictures but here a few.
They had an awesome giraffe feeding exhibit so we had to do it! $5.00 to get licked by a giraffe, why not? :)
The kids, as well as GeeBee, loved it!
Even though it was 90 degrees and stinky, Parker and I decided to take a ride on Henry the camel. I mean, when else could you ride a camel. I was actually surprised that Parker got on. It was pretty tall and a little scary but he seemed to like it!
He's growing up before my very eyes.
This boy LOVES his passy.
We haven't been able to spend much time with our best buddy Edward due to crazy summer schedules but we are hoping that will change soon.
We went to the Marriott splash pad with a few friends a few weeks ago. We had never been. I think it opened when we were in Indiana. Anyway... The kids weren't fans.
Preston was literally blown over by the cannon force water spray and Parker said it was too crowded. I think we will stick to the one in Muscle Shoals.
Anytime I get out my camera or my phone, this is what Preston does. He says cheeeeese!!! really load and gives me the biggest smile. I think it's precious!
We are having a fun summer so far and I hope that you are too!

Parker played TBall for the first time this Spring and it was so much fun to watch! We were blessed to be on the team with some of our dearest friends.
This little stinker was into EVERYTHING at the ball field! I was so thankful for grandparents who followed and chased him all over the place so I could watch the game.
