Dixon Family Fun Day!

We declared Saturday to be "Dixon Family Fun Day" because it was the first Saturday in a while that Tripp, Caroline, and I were all together with no major plans. So we decided to take Caroline to Point Mallard water park. And she loved it!

Caroline loved jumping off the side of the pool to Tripp, going down the water slide, but her favorite thing to do was swing. She loved swinging through the water and trying to splash us with her feet.

It was a wonderful family day with just the 3 of us. We are getting so excited about our trip to Seaside to continue the family fun!

Living It Up Lamey Style

One of the greatest blessings in my life is my friendship with Tracy. We met our freshman year in college and have been best friends ever since. We roomed together in the sorority house for 3 years (it takes a special person to live with me in such tight quarters for 3 years in a row!!!). It is hard to believe that now we are both married with kids! She has a daughter that is 4 months older than Caroline and a 9-month old boy. We try to see each other at least once a year, so Caroline and I went to Conway to visit. We had such a fun time!

We went swimming a lot because they have a pool in their backyard. Caroline enjoyed swimming with Adalyn and jumping off the diving board!

We took the girls to Jump Zone one afternoon. This was a new experience for Caroline, and she had a great time. It took her a little while to warm up, but then she was running around like crazy!

The bow has got to go!

Caroline found a horse in the arcade!

Caroline loved riding Adalyn's four-wheeler all around the house. Adalyn was so sweet to share all of her toys with Caroline.

Caroline loved playing with Hugh and feeding him and singing to him at nap time. She was all about baby Hugh. When he was napping Caroline would ask me over and over "Where baby Hugh go?"

Me and Tracy

Tracy and I joked that we felt like we were running a daycare with 3 kids, 2 of which were potty training! But we had a wonderful visit. Tracy and I loved hanging out together and seeing our children play together!

Goggles and Girls

Caroline has been asking for some goggles ever since she saw a kid wearing them at the pool. Yesterday she told me she wanted some green goggles. But I could not find a green pair at Target, so I bought her 2 pairs, one pink and one blue. She was so excited when she unwrapped her prize. She said, "Caroline pink, Daddy blue." She wore them so much yesterday around the house and in the bath tub that her eyes had circles around them!

Caroline has also been asking me for several days, "Momma, where Charlotte?". She has been missing her friend! So last night we went to eat dinner with Charlotte and her parents. Caroline had a great time and was so happy to be with Charlotte!

Well, I need to stop blogging and finish my packing for Arkansas! One last picture of me and my girl!

Happy 4th Weekend!

Caroline and I spent this weekend in Jackson with family since Tripp had to work. We had so much fun just hanging out with the fam, and I did a little shopping, too! Thursday morning my Dad and I took Caroline to the pool. She had a great time swimming with Granddaddy!

Caroline spent Thursday night at Winnie and Granddaddy's house, and I went out to eat with my Mom and her Bunko group. Mom said I must be desperate for a girls night out to go, but I really had a great time. She has wonderful friends!

The ladies who let me crash their party!

We spent Friday night with Aunt Bessie and Uncle Jeremy. Mom, Lesley, and I took Caroline swimming Friday night.

Mom, Caroline, and Lesley's legs!

Saturday night we spent more time with my family, including Gomme and Dandy and Aunt Dodo and Uncle B.G. Caroline had so much fun getting attention from so many people!

We had such a great weekend in Jackson and we are looking forward to our trip to Arkansas this weekend to visit friends and family!
