Another graduation and last day of school

Last night Parker's school had their graduation service. As soon as we got there Parker went over to his teacher and just sat in the circle of students.....

He was so well behaved and so cute! His class sang "Mr. Sun" in the program. I cant tell you how proud I am of him. He was so cute and did so good!! I think I was expecting the worse (him screaming or yelling for me or just not doing what he was suppose to) but he was great!! Just watch this....

I think my favorite part is the whistling!! So funny! Also, did you see how well he could go down the stairs all by himself!! Such a big boy!

After graduating we went to play at chick fil a, Parker's favorite (and mine)=)

And today was Parker's last day of school for this school year! They had a pajama party
Here is Parker and his awesome teacher!! He looks like he just woke up in this picture!
I am very excited that Parker will home this summer but it is going to be a little challenging. I am still in school this summer, Im only taking two classes so hopefully I can get it all done during nap time! I cant wait for all the playdates and plaing in the water and picnics!! Happy Summer!!

While we were at graduation, Dennis' parents took Parker to the park down by the river. They sent us a lot of pictures but this is the only one that ended up being on my phone. He had such a great time and slept like a rock last night!! Thanks Granny and Papa!!

Atlanta and a birthday party

Last week Dennis and I attended the National Leadership Conference in Atlanta with my parents. This conference was for Circle of Care members, these are supporters of childrens hospitals from all over North America. There were over 25 hospitals represented by over 800 people. Yall know how much we love ACH and it was amazing to be around so many supporters of so many different childrens hospitals. The first day of the conference was a chance to see Atlanta. We chose to go on a home and garden tour of some of Atlantas finest homes. The first home was 10 acres of beautiful gardens, the second home was the home of the founder of Home Depot and the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, and the third home was one of 3 certified "green" homes in the U.S.

The second day was the actual conference.
That morning we heard a few physicians speak and met some amazing children from the Atlanta childrens hospital.
For lunch we ate on the 50 yard line of the Georgia dome. We got to enter through the entrance that the players come through on game day (they even had lights and fog and cheerleaders and the band!!). During lunch we were entertained by Jeff Foxworthy!!

That night there was a black tie Gala at the Georgia Acquarium (which is AMAZING!!) I cant wait to take Parker there.
This is me touching a sea urchin in my formal gown!
You will never guess who sat at the table right next to us at dinner!!! Jennifer Arnold from the Little Couple on TLC!! I just love her!! In the picture below I am sitting on the floor!! SHe is the sweetest, nicest and cutest person ever!!!
WAIT...there is more....after dinner we went into a huge tent and had a private concert by Lionel Richie!! It was a pretty amazing day that I wont soon forget!!
Sorry my pictures are so terrible, I forgot to take my nice camera and had to use my phone!!
When we got home we got to take Parker to Brody's birthday party at our church. Parker could not wait to see Noah!! Of course, they wouldnt stand still for a picture. Here is what I could get...

Daddy played basketball with Parker

And here is Parker wearing one of his party favors!

So, that is some of what has been going on in our busy life!! I am on break from school for another week and tonight my baby sister will graduate from high school!! I cant believe it!! I will post about that tomorrow!!

Parker's new "do"

Parker gets hot so easily and it is already in the 90's!! I have a feeling it is going to be a VERY hot summer. His skin is also very sensitive to the sun, thanks to his genetics inherited from your truely and from some of the medication he takes. SO, I decided that he needed his hair cut really short. It will keep him cool and it will make it so easy to put sunscreen on his head AND I was hoping it would look pretty cute too!!

Parker LOVED getting his head shaved by Daddy. This is the total opposite reaction from when he gets his cut in the cute kid friendly salon that included cartoons, a train table and fun firetruck chairs. (yes, my kid is the screamer!!!)

It is very different and will probably take me a little while to get used to, but I still think he is the cutest thing ever!!!

And now he looks exactly like his Daddy!! I will try to get a picture of them together and prove it to yall!!

To Granny's house we go

This past weekend we went to visit Dennis's parents. Two of his sisters and their families were there also. It was a great day filled with lots of yummy food!! They live on a lake and it is just so beautiful. Parker spent over an hour throwing rocks into the lake with everyone.

I guess he was getting tired so he and his cousin, nichole, sat on the bank and threw rocks for a while.

I didnt get any pictures of all the family. I hate it when I do that!!!

Hope everyone is having a great week!!
PS: I will be posting Parker's new hair cut later today. I dont know what I was thinking!!! Lets just say....he will be "cool"!!
