Fourth Fireworks

 This year on July 4th we were invited by some friends from church to a party at their house.  There was good food, good company, a great live band and amazing fireworks.  Like every year I try to get pictures of the show, and every year they turn out fuzzy, dark, pathetic.  This year however I learned a new trick on my phone that helped me get better photos!!  I was super impressed by the show...seeing as how it was put on in their backyard!!

"So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring." — Martin Luther King Jr.

June 2015

Hello June!!  You were a busssssssy one!  But lots of fun was had for sure!


*June 2nd I painted my front door red and continued preparing our house to be put on the market.  What a task....it did help me purge, organize and finally have a minimalist look I really like!
*While getting ready for the photographer to come and take professional pics of the house I straigtened like a mad woman.  Seeing the pics of B and O's room makes me a little sad.
*June 5th was the last day of school and these two were ready!!!
*June 8th we headed over to Ashlee's pool for some swim fun!!  Breslyn loves her some Camille!
*That week we also started our church's VBS program at a local park!!  It wasn't crazy hot, the wind didn't blow ALL of our crafts away and the kids were very good...much better than last year!;)  It makes my heart so happy to see Joey and Aidan get involved in VBS.  :))
*June 10th Joey and I celebrated 15 years of marriage!!  We had a nice day date and discussed our wonderful life together!  Haha!  Love you babe!


*June 12th B got a BIGGGG haircut!!  I love it and she looks precious in it....I think I've given up on her long locks, but I will NEVER give up on her bows!!
*The rest of June was spent on vacation....we hit up Maumelle, Arkansas, Fall Creek Falls, Chattanooga and Franklin, TN!!!  It was a long trip, but always so wonderful to see family!!  A few highlights from the trip---LOTS of pool time--the kids and I hiked the falls this year (1.5 miles down).  I was so so proud to have done it.  (I paid for it later with a jacked up knee and weeks of pain)--I discovered these awesome pics of my mom and my favorite aunt as well as a pic of me from about 20 years ago--we hit up a favorite restaurant, Pucketts, in beautiful Franklin.  I wish Joey would have been able to join us, but he had to work.  :(
*We rounded out the month with going to a birthday party for a sweet girl from our church.
*June 29th both Breslyn and Owen started Tennis camp!!  Owen was TIRED by the end of each day! :)  B had a great time, and will probably want to do it again soon!!

Phew...June.is.done!  :))))

I NEED Some Fall!!!









Tell me I am not alone in my longing for crisp cool air, warm blankets, snuggling, pumpkins, beautiful yellow and orange leaves and newness!???!!  Oh wait...here in Texas we get about a day of Fall, but even that I do thoroughly enjoy!

3 Months....WHAAAAT?!

I'm not sure there has ever been a longer break on my blog.  Seriously.  Pathetic.  I mean I could give excuses....like, we moved at the end of July, into my Grandma's house, without my computer and access to all my photos; we are still trying to sell our house (hopefully this Friday); we are building a new house; my dear friend Haley has been recovering from surgery and I've been helping her; my kids won't leave me alone...OR they hog the computer; I'm trying to find a job (for M/W/F); I'm trying to not lose my mind errrday.  BUTTTTT I won't use excuses.  I just haven't made time for ye old blog!  But we have now set up my computer at my Gma's house, and pictures are accessible now!!  Whoop!  So I will be back at blogging.  I have ALL the confidence.  Yup.  Mhm.  I am on it!

This post was just to catch you up on the goings on of the Tremaine crew.

But I want to give a shout out to my Grandma and parents.

My parents have been so great about keeping the kiddos for me when I need them to.  They've just been so patient and I can't say how much peace of mind that gives me.  

My Grandma has so graciously opened up her home to our GINORMOUS huge little family...and we will never be able to thank her enough for her generosity, love and help!!  We are so blessed by her.

And we can't NOT have a picture, right?!


I cannot believe that in a week that little one will be starting Kindergarten.  Tears...er, sobbing may ensue.  And that big one there...is almost 6ft tall.  He's 13.  It's like he's growing up and making me feel old just to spite me.  Twit.  I mean....I love him so, that sweet angel of mine, who thinks it's funny to stand next to me and stick his armpit on top of my head.

Happy Monday night all!!!

Shoutout to Dalene!!  Thanks for still reading the blog after all this time! :)
