Small Town and Simple Pleasures

I grew up in a small town and then went off to college. After college, Michael and I got married and moved to Flowood. To Mississippians, Flowood is a busy city. We loved living there and all of the great things it had to offer us as a new family. Michael got a job offer 2 years ago and we packed up our life and moved to Oxford. We love living here and it has really made me realize that I miss that "small" town atmosphere that I grew up around. On a regular basis, I take Whitten for a stroll around the square. Its fun to go to the children's bookstore, stop in a the candy store to get a treat, and we always stop at the church playgrounds to play. There is so much here that makes us all appreciate the small joys of life and I am just so happy living in this small town and sharing those "simple" joys with my children!!

Whitten's Smile...

I was goofing around the other day with my camera and got these sweet pictures of Whitten...too cute not to share!!

Double Decker and Fun Run 2010

Riding the DD Bus
The boys had to sit with Daddy for the ride...I think it's because Michael lets them reach over the sides for the leaves from the trees!!

Vaiden on the rock wall!!

Whitten in the Bounce House...he loves these things!!!!

We started our Double Decker Day with Vaiden running in the Kid's Fun Run again this year. The race is a mile long and he did such an amazing job!! He never stopped running and once he got close to the finish line, I heard his determined huffing and puffing to finish the race strong. I had a crying Momma moment!! He made me realize just how proud I am of him...he is such an awesome kid!! After the race, we had a great day riding the DD bus, shopping, and playing in the kid's section. The weather was beautiful, so it made for such a fun all day event!!
