Mason is getting his very first COUSIN!!!!

We are soooo excited and ready to meet Baby Wilson Marie!!! My brother & sister-in-law, Christy, are due July 16th. We were sooo giddy when we found out she was a girl a few months ago. My parents will be over the moon with a little grandson AND granddaughter to love! I'm sure Mason will be very confused and a little jealous to see this other little child in the family, but he will have to move over a little and share the spotlight with Wilson! Ha! :)

Christy's best friends threw her a baby shower today down in Nashville, so Mason and I ventured down there for the big event. It was at the Hillwood Country Club and was really nice. My mom, Aunt Linzett, MaMaw, Aunt Karen, and cousin Stephanie were all there so Mason had the best time with the girls in his family. Christy looked gorgeous and had the biggest glow about her. She is going to the best little mom and I am dying to see my big brother as a daddy to a sweet little girl!

Beautiful cake made by one of the hostess' friends in Knoxville... it matched the sweet invitation
Favors made by Christy's best friend, Brooke. The little tag read "Princess Wilson." Loved them!
The diaper cake I made for Princess Wilson! :)

My sweet boy all perched up in a big boy chair eating himself a cracker

Gettin' some love from Steph
How cute is Wilson's mommy!?!?!!?!
My parents got Christy & Jody a sweet Lullaby cd for Wilson that actually has her name in the songs! It also has a personalized label. Mason has this same exact cd and goes to sleep to it every single night! Well, except that it says "Mason" instead of "Wilson." HA!
The family girls ooohing & ahhing over Christy's gifts... Aunt Karen, my mom, Christy's mom, and MaMaw
Baby Wilson's proud grandmas
Christy loved the super soft embroidered blanket from my momma... My mom is so grateful to her daughter's best friend who was up at 6 am on her birthday embroidering this blanket! :)
A special moment between Christy and her baby girl's great-MaMaw
Okay, we were all in the most awe by this gift! One of Christy's friend's mom got her all different sizes of onesies, socks, and a blanket in this pink & white tye dye! The cutest idea ever!
Christy was the most excited about this handmade afghan from Aunt Karen... these are gifts we treasure always!
And of course more gifts from Auntie April :)... I man, who can resist buying sweet little girl clothes after 2 years of just buying little boy clothes??!?!
I got her a sweet handmade blue smocked dress & bonnet... All of her friends told her she has to put it on Baby Wilson to go home from the hospital in!
Appliqued onesie & matching ruffled bloomers made by..... guess who!?!?!?! I am having the most fun making things for my little niece!!!
Mason & his Nana Kay taking a little stroll on the patio

Okay, so I may be a little biased... But is this not the most beautiful little face ever???
Mason was enthralled by the rain and kept pointing out all the puddles. He was dying to get out in the grass and play in it! Maybe when he's not in one of his "girly" outfits, as his Daddy would call it.

Makin' sure the "Bob" worked right! Ha!

We are so happy for y'all, Jody & Christy!
God has blessed you so much!

Lovin' this Spring weather!

We are so thankful for this gorgeous spring weather! Hopefully it'll stay this way for a little while longer before it starts to get super hot. When we got home from church today Mason wanted to frolic in our front yard for a little bit before taking his nap. Who could blame him, this weather is so beautiful! And of course I wanted some shots of him in one of his sweet Easter outfits. :)

Off to take my 3-hour nap!!

Zoo Time!

Today we headed up I-65 to the Louisville Zoo with our friends, the Burtons'. It is Spring Break week for lots of schools, so we were at the zoo along with about a million other people. Ha! We still had a lot of fun and of course Marc and I were happy to be back on our old stompin' grounds. We took the Burtons' to a fun touristy Louisville restaurant after the Zoo... Lynn's Paradise Cafe; Home of Oprah's favorite macaroni & cheese! Thank you. I don't really love that mac & cheese though. Oh well. Mason loved looking at all the animals at the zoo with his little girlfriend, Gracie. She is his "girl" in Bowling Green... he also has several girls in Louisville & Nashville. We gotta keep a close eye on him! :) We were thinking about getting a zoo membership so we didn't have to wait in the super long line, but decided against it since we're really not zoo people. I mean, if there were a zoo in BG we would probably do it just for Mason and I do get out & about during the day, but we're not gonna drive to Louisville or Nashville all the time to where we would really get our money's worth. Now, if we lived in Memphis it would be a different story cuz that zoo is like a Disney theme park or something! It was awesome! So it kinda wasn't fair to the Louisville Zoo for Mason and me to visit it after the Memphis Zoo cuz it didn't stand a chance. Ha! It's still a great zoo though with lots of fun things to do and look at. Eating an ice cream cone while looking at the tiger was probably my favorite part of the day. And seeing how excited Mason got about the giraffes. I mean, those things were huge!!! I never really realized that before.

I told Scott I was gonna limit myself to taking 10 pictures on this day cuz he always jokes with me about how I'm a picture-takin' fool... I was kinda close to my limit. I think I just took 32! And if y'all know me, that's nothin'! :)

Mason looking for the peacock
Found it! I was really mesmerized!
Mason stuck close to Ally's side the whole time!

Our favorite animal of the day! Look at how close we were!

Off to Lynn's for some yummy lunch and to see some interesting decor!

The Burtons'... Love them!

Our big group... and then some bachelorette party came and perched themselves right next to us and started playing the most interesting games! And the bride all had some veil perched up on her head and they were making the biggest scene. I was dyin' to get in on their little party though! Looked the most fun.

Bein' silly in the gift shop
Trajan & Caroline checkin' out all the yard decor... thank you.
Mason was all up on that "mooooo"

Sweet & sassy Ally

What a fun day spent with some great friends in some beautiful weather! Looking forward to lots more random little road trips this summer!
