What we've been up to....

We have had the best summer, and it's only half way over! I started my new job at the VA a couple of weeks ago so now I just work a few hours a day! It's so nice to be a part time "stay at home mom". Just enough to do to keep me from getting bored and I still get to spend most of the day with Tanner. I know I'll really enjoy it when new baby Pettit gets here in November! We've been out of town a lot lately, but when we've been here we've just enjoyed relaxing, eating lots of watermelon (I can't get enough fruit these days), spending time with family, and playing with our sweet friends. I'm 18 weeks pregnant now and feeling so much better. It was really rough for a few months, but this baby is definately worth it! Most days I don't even feel pregnant anymore. I'm growing really fast though! I went from not looking very pregnant at all to really poking out in just a couple of weeks! Tanner is really excited about his new baby, and Hart and I are, too!

We love eating watermelon at the country club...

...and sharing it with our friends!

And most of all...we love having parades with Hill and Harvey. They happen quite often!

2011 Summer Beach Trip!

A few weeks ago, we went to Destin with Hart's parents, Paxton, his aunt, his cousin, and her husband. We stayed for 7 nights and had the best time. Our house was on the beach so we played in the sand and relaxed all week. I didn't take many pictures b/c I decided just to enjoy myself instead of carrying a camera around the whole time. We ate at so many good restaurants. Tanner learned to love crab claws just as much as I do. Here are a few pictures I took.
Tanner loved digging in the sand.

This was the last day. You can't tell in this picture, but the waves were huge that day. They went over our heads several times!

We went crab hunting at night, too. This was one of our favorite things!

We weren't too good at it at first, but it didn't take Daddy long to be the master of catching crabs!

Hart and I took Tanner to play at Baytown Wharf one day. Tanner insisted on riding on this carousel twice.

We went to gator island at Fudpucker's, too.

There were tons of alligators. Tanner opted out of having his picture taken holding one of them!

We had the best time and can't wait to go back. Thank you Honey and Otto for such a fun trip! We love y'all!!
