Spring break 2014

For Spring Break this year, we loaded up the camper and headed to the Frio River.

It was beautiful!  (Filled with college kids, but beautiful)

The kids loved splashing around catching minnows.

One afternoon we went to John Jimmy's to watch live music and a hog sacking contest.  It was so fun to watch!

Ethan and Austin joined in on the hog sacking fun!  The captured and bagged their baby hog in 27 seconds.  We were so proud of our city boys!

Foxy Lauren

Roxy did great on her first camping trip.  We quickly realized she needs a trim before her next.

It was a fun Spring Break on the Frio!

Lauren's 5th Birthday Rainbow Dash Party!

We celebrated Lauren's 5th Birthday with a Rainbow Dash party!  She knew she was going to have ponies in our backyard, but she did not expect to see a rainbow unicorn.  She was so happy!

The rainbow cupcakes were a big hit with the kids.

Lauren got to ride all the ponies.  Poor Felisha was leading Lauren and the horse kept trotting.  Felisha had no idea it was because Lauren was kicking the horse!  Our sweet Lauren is a firecracker!

Ethan looked so big riding the smallest pony!

Poor, poor pony...


The obligatory group picture looks similar to Ethan's 3rd Birthday party.

 Family shot minus my dad.

The party scene included a rainbow photo booth.

Lauren loved the cake my mom made her.

She loved it even more when we cut into it!

Happy Birthday Lauren!  We love you very much!

September so far

My computer is still not working, so Instagram pictures from my phone are all I can do for now. Boo hoo!

Soccer season is here!  The boys are on the same team again and this time they have even more friends on their team.  They are loving it and are playing better than ever.

My parents went to Lauren's school for Grandparents' Day.  Isn't this card she made them so cute?

 Introducing Blaze!  When the terrarium in this glass vase got spilled, I re-purposed it into a home for a new fish.  The kids were very excited to get a Beta and I like having him keep me company while I wash dishes.

September Market Days was hot!  It's always fun, but we are really looking forward to cooler weather!

Instagram catch up continued

My tunnel at work

My new obsession. 

Lauren and Madi had fun at the beauty salon. 

So love my baby girl. 


Kirby is so studious in her old age. 

Austin's old tablet bit the dust so Eric bought him another one. He's a sucker for Austin. 

Love Jack Allen's and love my neighbors!
