Happy 13th Birthday Shaelyn!

Our sweet Shaelyn is 13 years old...where has the time gone? She brings joy to our lives everyday with her kind and gentle spirit. She LOVES life and lives every moment to it's fullest. She doesn't let a day go by without telling someone that she loves them. God has truly blessed our lives and continues to bless Shaelyn. We love you so much and pray that this year brings you much happiness and beautiful memories!
We celebrated her "black and white" themed night with a DJ for 30+ kids. They danced non stop for 4 hours, played basketball, rolled in human size balls, made smores and ended the night making treat bags from the candy buffet!

Summer Volleyball

The kids are in full swing with summer activities. Shaelyn continues to LOVE volleyball and has decided to play on a summer team. She has a great coach and a FUN group of girls. She still misses dance and plans to try out for the school dance team and volleyball team this year. Have FUN Shaelyn and go Dominators!
A little pep talk before the game.

KNIGHTS take 1st Place!!!

WOW! It seems like it's been forever since I have posted on my blog. Carson finished his first season of "kid pitch" baseball and he had the time of his life. He played for Sidewinder Little League, the KNIGHTS! His team was amazing! They were the youngest team in his division and they finished in 1st place...WAY TO GO also helps that they had 3 wonderful coaches, one of them being his daddy!!!!! We are so proud of our little PLAYMAKER BAKER. He is definitely following in his daddy's footsteps! Congratulations Carson on a fantastic little league season!

Ready to hit!
