Happy Birthday USA!

We had the best 4th of July imanginable! Our best friends, Ashley and Bryan came to visit! It was so nice having them here. We miss them so much!
Ashley and I are both pregnant with baby girls and due within one month of each other. Here we are with out baby bumps...
Hayden really enjoyed having them here. He is still asking for Bryan to come over and play!

We took Ashley and Bryan to Rendevouz, which is a world-famous BBQ restaurant downtown Memphis. It was so yummy! After dinner we walked down to Beale Street! Yes, we took our baby to a bar! Just kidding we stayed outside and had the best time people watching.

Saturday night, Will and Steph came over for a cookout. Hayden really enjoyed having Will read to him about becoming a Big Brother!

Of course it would not be the 4th without Daddy shooting off Fireworks! Hayden loved the fireworks and is still talking about them.

June- What we have been up to!

We have been playing a lot outside lately. This is really the first summer that Hayden has been able to enjoy the outdoors. One of his favorite things is to watch Daddy mow the grass. He always wants to help!

Another favorite of Hayden's is playing in the sprinkler. It is amazing how much joy a $9.99 sprinkler can bring to our "little man's" world.

Always up to mischief.

Fun in the Sun Day at school!

Here is Hayden with his "lady friend" Genieve on the slide.

We also got the opportunity to meet the newest member of our Chattanooga family...Baby Hogan! We spent the weekend with Chris and Kelly and had a blast getting to visit with old friends. I have been really worried about how Hayden is going to react with a new baby, so this was a good test and he did great! He always wanted to make sure Baby Hogan had toys to play with and he also wanted to help but baby Hogan to "night night."

Here is the proud Papa Chris with his "little man" Hogan.

As many of you know, Hayden has a birthday coming up! While we were in Chattanooga, he got to open an early birthday gift from the Haileys'

Hayden loves his Gator Golf! We have recently made this an outside toy for obvious reasons. Thanks Kelly and Chris making Hayden's birthday so special!

We Moved!

In May we moved from Chattanooga to Collierville. It was very hard saying goodbye to our friends and first house. It has been quite an adjustment moving to west Tennessee, but we are finally settling in and enjoying everything that the Memphis area has to offer.

The Easter Egg Hunt

Hayden's school went all out this year for their annual Easter Egg Hunt. They had a full petting zoo, pony rides, train rides and of course the egg hunt.

Here is Hayden trying to figure out the duck. He seemed pretty scared at first but then...

he grabbed the duck by its neck. Luckily Daddy and GiGi were right there to save the duck. I love this picture b/c of my Mom's face.

This picture cracks me up! You would think with all of the activities going on, any child would be in heaven... not ours, he was in the worst mood ever. He did not want to participate in anything.

This was actually during the egg hunt. Hayden had no interest in finding eggs. He just wanted to play in the car.

Back among the living!

We're back! Things are finally starting to settle down. Here is what we have been up to this Spring and Summer.

Here is Hayden enjoying some yummy blueberry pancakes... a favorite in the Johnson household!
Earlier this year we celebrated the upcoming arrival of Baby Hogan. Here is his mommy, Kelly...doesn't she look fabulous?

Great Friends!

3 preggos!

I know it has been a very long time since my last post! We have had lots of changes in the Johnson Family household. Moving to a new city, starting a new job, and being pregnant has about done me in as far as stress comes.
But, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Things are starting to settle down. It looks like our house has sold (FINALLY), and we found out on Monday that we are having a baby GIRL! We are thrilled! Baby Emma looks great! What more can we ask for...God is so good! I have so many pictures to post of all the activities we have done while settling in to west Tennessee. We really like the small town we live in and cannot wait to get involved in the community. Thank you so much to all of our friends and family! We could not have gotten through this without all of your love and support. I would especially like to thank my Mom for being my rock over the last few months! We are very blessed to have you in our lives.
