welcome summer!

Our start to summer didn't go exactly as planned.
Plans were to drop Hayes off at school for his last day, join him in the afternoon while he had outside fun with his school friends.
Instead we headed to the pediatrician and then to Walgreen's to pick up meds for strep throat. Poor guy.
He was devastated to miss school. However, our summer treasure chest, along with some ibuprofen, helped bring a smile to his face. :)

I loved this. The first paper was written at the beginning of first grade. The second paper, at the end.
You can also tell that he still really isn't a fan of coloring. The boy would rather be drawing. :)

and the butterflies fly away...

Another round of the Live Butterfly Garden to get things kicked off for the summer.
When we released the butterflies today, the little guys weren't as friendly as last year. This last picture is all I got of the release. :)
Oh well, we still had a great time watching the amazing transformation.

pop goes the weasel

What a fun night! These girlies did so good and were just the cutest little jack-in-the-boxes!
 Mommy got to hang out backstage with the girls.
 Flowers from Daddy.
 Thanks Grandpa, Papaw, Nana and Minnie for coming to watch! It meant so much!

Ellie, you were such a good little dancer tonight.
Sorry about the floppy hat. But you have to admit, it was pretty funny. :)
So proud of you sweet girl.

singing and swords

Embry and Ellie had their school music program today. Here's a little taste of the cuteness. :)

Each year, I try to get their picture outside on the benches at the end of the year.


They weren't havin' it this go-around, so goofiness is all we got.

We've been playing A LOT outside lately. Today was no exception. :)
A boy and his sword.

What a great weekend! We hit the new Legoland Discovery Center in Dallas and shopped 'til we dropped... or at least 'til the kids dropped. :)
Kyle and I had a moment where we both felt that we are finally arriving to the part of life where traveling with kids becomes more of a joy and not so much work. So encouraging and brings mucho hope to this Mama who has a thing for travel!

party time!

We had our first birthday party outside of the house... and Mama liked it. :)
Hayes had a great time jumping, running and sweating with his buddies.

My Lego boy enjoyed his Lego party.

Happy 7th Birthday, Hayes!
