Eat My Bubbles!

Sarah is SO proud to be on the neighborhood swim team this year.
Go East Hampton Hurricanes!

Sarah's favorite part is getting written on by the Sharpie marker.
She wanted "Eat My Bubbles" but I told her we were reserving that one for her first meet ;)

Happy Mothers Day

On the very special day I want to honor our mother

Kathryn Virginia

(or lovingly known to the world as "Ginger")


Mom, I have learned so much from you about being a mother. I never realized how much work it actually was until I had my own and I thank you for all that you did to make our lives great. Despite what we did or did not have growing up, you always made life fun and exciting for us and you left us each with a lifetime of fun and loving memories. We are all so blessed and thankful for you and I think you are the greatest mom in the world. You have touched many lives and you are such a blessing to everyone you meet. I am always so proud when people stop me and share their "Ginger stories" because it is clearly obvious that everyone else loves you just as much as we do! We are all honored to be your children and I can only strive to be as good of a mom to my girls as you were for us. Thank you for all the love, memories and lessons you taught us.


Our Queen of a Mother


Tripp & Staci, Kasey & Adam, Ashley, Mandy & Clark , Rachel & Joseph

and all 14 of your sweet grandchildren

Best Mother's Day gift E-V-E-R!!

This has to be by far the most precious Mother's Day gift I've ever gotten from Sarah. I've loved everything she's ever made but this one takes the cake for me. She had been working on this book at school for a couple of weeks and has been telling me that she was working on a very special project just for me. She came home from school today and said she was just too excited to wait until Mother's Day to give me my special gift so we sat together as she read it to me. I laughed and cried and loved every single minute of it because it is a story about me as seen through her five year old eyes. I loved it and will cherish this for the rest of my life. I love you Sarah and am SO very proud to be your mommy!
