So this weekend, I braved the weather, snakes, and alligators to spend family time at the cub scout camping trip at Shepard State Park in Gautier. Though we had been experiencing terrible thunderstorms with lots of rain and flooding, we packed up the tent and headed to camp secretly hoping it would be cancelled. We arrived to find the park was actually quite nice and somehow, the ground was dry. We really enjoyed ourselves. Tyler got to know some of the other scouts and played lots of games/sports. Tyler and Kyle went fishing and exploring/hiking all over the site. Finally after dark, we sat around the campfire telling ghost stories and eating smores. During the night we had many visitors including a 40 pound raccoon at the tent next to us. However, despite the 40 something degree temp, a good time was had by all. Here is a peak at the trip other pics are on my flicker.

Patrick was able to come home for 2 weeks at the end of Feb. We were all so happy to spend time with him. While he was here, we celebrated his birthday and Christmas as well as having a crawfish boil and Bar B Q. Tyler enjoyed spending time with his Uncle P, especially on the 4 wheeler. We can't wait for Patrick to be back home for good.
Tyler's smile has been changing. He has lost several more baby teeth. He is missing 3 front teeth and one more is loose. He also had a dental appointment last week where he had 2 teeth filled and crowns placed on them. He did excellent this time. Dr. Jason was really good to him. Here is a picture of his snagle tooth grin!

So Caiden is now officially walking, that is if he wants to. Mainly he chases food. But yesterday, he walked all the way accross the yard to chase Tyler on his scooter. He is also eating table food, drinking from a sippy cup, and pointing to things he wants. I know, he seems to be growing up too fast, but he just wants to keep up with his Bubby.

So Kimberly is so brave and I am so proud of her. She competed in Pascagoula's Junior Miss and was AWESOME! I only wish I could have been brave enough to do something like that. I missed her talent, but everyone said she did great! Her poise and self expression was perfect. She looked so beautiful. I have posted a pic, but it is quite difficult to take a picture without a flash with one hand while holding a wiggling baby in the other hand, but you get the picture. Also, here is a cute pic of Haley, who was also amazing, and her flower girl.

Just wanted to share the news...Tyler earned his wolf scout badge plus 3 arrow points. He was so proud to receive these. Did I mention how cute he was in his new uniform? After the awards ceremony, the boys enjoyed dinner with their families and got a chance to break the pinata. Although, Tyler didn't bust it, he sure jumped in after the candy. He was actually on top of another boy! Good times!
