It's been awhile...

Sorry! I have no excuse except that we have been having so much fun lately, that I keep forgetting to update! Walker and I went to Las Vegas for a couple of days, Murphy and I went to Nashville after that, we've been to the zoo, played in the yard A LOT, and the pool opened this weekend! Whew! You may want to sit down- this is a long post!:) At MIX Las Vegas, on top of our hotel- THE Hotel at Mandalay Bay! What a gorgeous view!

Before seeing our Cirque du Soleil show, LOVE! It was fabulous!


Walker relaxing in the lazy river- he loves a lazy river!






We had such a relaxing time at our awesome pool!





We had great weather- 97 & sunny with no humidity! (Notice the shirt, Ang?)





Walker petting a stingray at the Aquarium in our hotel







Trying to get a pic with the sharks-obviously this did not work out!haha









View of the Venetian from outside









Our dinner show at SW Steakhouse in The Wynn- dinner was great- the show was too, just a little off-the-wall!









Murphy enjoying some time with NeNe at Snappy Tomato in Nashville!











Playing at the Nature Center's dirt playground- every little boy's idea of heaven on earth!













Give Murphy a dirt or sand hole and he is set!













The after shot- covered from head to toe with dirt!













We got to spend some time with my good friends, Sharon and Kevin, and their little boy, Luke! They just moved to Nashville, and we are so excited to get to see them more often! (Is it just me, or does Murphy's noggin look gigantic here?)












Coloring at the table with washable (thank goodness!) markers!
















Luke helped NeNe give Murphy his bath. Murphy thought it was funny when Luke helped rinse his head!















Daddy and Murphy playing on Mommy's yoga mat- at least it's getting some use with them!:)



















We had a fun trip to the zoo on Wednesday- he loves to "drive,drive" the jeep!




















Checking out the big "Rafs"


















He loved this tortoise statue- he kept saying, "Tuck, Tuck!" (From the Wonder Pets)





















The slide was a huge hit!






















This was a miracle shot considering he had me in a choke hold on the Carousel. He never cried, but seemed quite concerned the whole time- I was finally able to pull away long enough to snap a pic!
























He loves anything to do with water- especially the sprinkler!

























"I rock, rock!"
























Allie Harris and Abby have been here this weekend and we have had so much fun at the pool! They are both such water bugs! Allie Harris loved to "make it grow" with the watering can!


























Murphy shared his hat so she wouldn't burn- but not so willingly at first!:)



























Sneaking a sip of Aunt Abby's tea!





























Kicking in the big pool with daddy! It was freezing!

Vegas looks like so much fun! You look fantastic, of course, as always. The new pictures of Murphy are great. I love his preppy little white Lacoste hat.

Great post Shmeggs! I love the Pre shirt of course...
My fav pic is the one where Murph is coming down the slide--it looks so big and he looks so small! Such a brave kiddo! Also love the pics with Luke--it's cool to see them together!
