Trip to Memphis

Well, we went to Memphis oh, in the beginning of June and I’ve never posted pics from out trip so here they are (just a few anyway).

Our first stop driving to Memphis was at Bass Pro πŸ™‚

When we arrived we went to eat and Addy insisted on taking this picture

hanging out with the great grandmothers

we spent about 2 hours taking care of our tires on the trip to Nashville...he did sooo good!

Bye Bye my designers 😦

Today’s Addy moment

So we were at the mall with one of Addy’s BBFs (Best Boy-Friends), Levi walking down the mall and Addyson walked by a vacant store front being used for advertising another store in the mall. It contained a bright red very puffy ball gown, Addy walked past and then said, “OH MY GOODNESS!” ran back to the window and proceeded to put her hands on the window and yell, “Mom, Mom, Look at this BEAUTIFUL dress!!!” Darby (Levi’s mom) thought that was so cute (and so did I).

OH how I am (tomboy through and through) going to raise this princess girly girl!

Addy’s phrases…

So one of the gals in my LTG (Life Transformation Group) challenged me to keep a log of all the funny (sometimes embarrassing) things my daughter says so here it goes….

Addyson: When am I going to get a squirter thing?
(We were talking about going peepee πŸ˜‰ )

Me: What do you mean?

Addyson: You know like Josiah and Mikey have to spray their peepee

Me: OH, well only boys have a squirter thingy…you know Owen has one but you don’t. Owen’s a boy and you’re a girl.

Addyson: Oh, well can I be a boy too πŸ˜‰


During the 15 hour drive from Lubbock, TX to Memphis, TN this past weekend.

Me: Addyson look at that big building (driving through downtown Dallas)…the one with the big ball on top.

Addyson: That’s not a ball you idiot. That’s a bubble.

Me: Excuse me!

Addyson: (Louder this time to make sure I can hear her) That’s not a ball you idiot, it’s a bubble.

* I almost cut across 7 lanes of interstate interchange traffic at that point.


Addyson: Mommy can we ride one of those water motorcycle’s (We were getting ready to go out on the lake with my in-laws)

Me: Yup, sure. That would be fun!

About an hour later…we’re on the boat in the middle of the lake.

Me: Alright Addy, I’m getting my life jacket on and we can ride now (getting ready to switch with Mark)

Addyson: NO! The whale will swallow me up if I get in that big water!


That’s just a few to share with you! πŸ™‚
