We spent last weekend in Pensacola for Josh's (Jonathan's brother) wedding.  He and Jamie have been engaged for two years so this wedding was a long time coming!

Jonathan and Crosby at the rehearsal dinner.  

Cole playing on the beach with Aunt Misty.  The weather was nice and sunny, but still a little cool.  Cole played in the water anyway. :-)

Relaxing in the hammock outside our room.

Cole and Jonathan went to Fort Barrancus.

Lunch at the Fish House.

Me, Misty and Francis...and Crosby! :-)

Sweet boy sleeping propped up on daddy's leg.

We also went to the museum.

Crosby found it very interesting. :-)

Blue Angels!

Wedding day!  I sure love my family!

Jonathan and I.  We celebrated 10 years of marriage the day before Josh and Jamie's wedding.

Two of my handsome boys.

The weather and the wedding were both beautiful!

The bride and groom.

At the reception.  The good was yummy and they had fondue which was a hit by all!  Cole's white shirt was a nice shade of brown by the end of the night!

We had a great weekend celebrating Josh and Jamie and just getting to get away for a few days. I sure am looking forward to summer!

Easter, Tee Ball and More!

It's been a busy few weeks for us!  This is in no particular order and jumps around alot with a bunch of've been warned! :-)

Cole and Crosby before the church Easter egg hunt.  I got them cute matching shirts off Etsy! :-)

Crosby on his first Easter.

Cole had a birthday party the day before Easter.  They had an egg hunt and the Easter bunny made an appearance too!  

Crosby has a rough life...waiting at the doctor's office is no fun!


Sweet sleeping angel.

Cole is playing tee ball this year and so far he is doing really well! It is so fun to watch him play!

Cole and his dad (and his Pawpaw) have done quite a bit of fishing lately.  We even had a fish fry this past weekend with some of their catches.   

Cole had an Easter party at school complete with an egg hunt and all.

Some of his classmates.

Crosby loved the party! :-)

Waiting to start hunting eggs.

Me and my boy.

Church egg hunt...

Unfortunately Jonathan's cousin died of a heart attack (very unexpected) a couple of weeks ago and we went home for the funeral.   We did get a few pictures before we left though.  

My boys...I have never felt so blessed in my life.

The Garner boys plus Chris (Jonathan's sister's husband).  What a nice looking group of males. :-)

Last week my girlfriend Dana and I went to the annual Spring Pilgrimage.  Columbus has lots of historic homes and the Pilgrimage gives you an opportunity to tour these homes.  This was the first one we went to and it is called Whitehall.  It is 5,500 square feet and was built in 1843.  It is restored and full of antiques.  It is not my style, but beautiful nonetheless.  

Dana and I and our babies.  Lani is about 10 weeks older than Crosby.  We have already decided they will marry some day. :-)

Well that wraps up the last few weeks.  We are headed to Pensacola on Friday for Jonathan's brother Josh's wedding.  Jonathan and I celebrate our 10 year anniversary on Friday so I think Josh and Jamie picked a good weekend to marry. :-)

Newborn pictures

We had Crosby's newborn pictures done when he was 8 days old and they turned out so good.  Megan Essick with Essick Photography did a great job!  

Love my boys!

Sweet little bunny!

He was awake for a little bit of it!

A smile! :-)

Since Easter was right around the corner we incorporated some eggs.

I sure do love this sweet baby and his big brother!

Brothers and Visitors

There is something about saying brothers that makes my heart smile!  :-)  One of the main reasons I wanted another child was so that Cole could have a sibling.  I know I will never regret this decision. 

He was so excited to meet Crosby!

My boys!  I am so blessed to have such amazing males in my life! :-)  And Cole tells me often how outnumbered I am.  He loves to say we have 3 boys and 1 girl. 

Garner family of 4!

Pawpaw and Crosby


Admiring my sweet boy.

Aunt Misty and her nephews

Aunt Misty and Crosby.  Thanks for coming to the hospital to see us!
