Long Time Gone

Hello Friends!! Sorry for being MIA for a while. We’ve been super busy around here and I just haven’t had time to sit down and blog. (more like I’m too tired after the kids go to bed to sit down and blog! ha!) With that being said though, we really haven’t been doing anything wild and crazy. Just normal everyday life! Here’s a quick IG update:

It’s officially spring and we’ve been playing outside A LOT! Gray has also gotten quite the little personality! He loves making silly faces!!


Gotta love a boy who love pizza! Russo’s in Collierville is a family favorite!


Baseball… Baseball… Baseball…. our entire life right now!


We got some crawfish a few weekends ago (my FAVORITE part of spring!!!!) and had a mini boil in the backyard!

Chris and I went to see Memphis at the Orpheum. It was fabulous!!!! Immediately after seeing Memphis downtown, we headed down to Mississippi to see Dave Matthews…

It was so fun! Muddy.. but very fun! We never get full “date days” like that. Definitely a treat!

This year marked 5 years since we lost Pop. The picture above was taken on his birthday April 30th 2008. It was the very last picture taken of him, and of course it was with his girl! The picture below is 5 years later, same spot, new smiling faces. Thankful for those 2 extra smiles and especially thankful for his namesake (Gray) who is a constant reminder of him. 


LK picked pink sparkles for both of us! ;)

Remember Pop! We had a birthday party with him. Lemon cupcakes… his fave!

Pop’s little namesake. Gray is #3 (girl, boy, then boy). My grandfather, David, was a #3 and the order was girl, boy, then Pop (boy). Then, he and Grams had 3 children. My mom, my uncle Joe, and then my uncle David (girl, boy, and boy). Then Chris and I had 3. Girl, boy, and .. you guessed it.. boy! It only made sense to continue the #3 tradition and name him after Pop and Uncle David. So, we decided to go with Davis for his middle name. He’s a TRUE David Kessler!!! We are all so thankful for this little guy. He’s a constant reminder of Pop and always keeps us smiling and laughing.

Dancing on the table… see what I mean about the laughing and smiling??!


And again, silly faces!


Rainy Day relaxing!!!


Me and my Pop! I miss him so much!


Chris and I went to the Grizzlies Playoff Game a few weekends ago! SO fun!! We won and we’re now in the 2nd round! Go Grizz!!!

I’ll try to do a better post soon!
