Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to 4 very special people in our lives!  Every year when Mom & Dad and Kitty & Rich's Anniversary come along I think it's even more special that they share the same day, one year apart that these 2 wonderful couples got married.  What were the odds that Tim and I's parents would have the same Anniversary date?

I couldn't wish for a more Happy Anniversary than for the 4 of you! You are so special to Tim and I and the girls and all of the family and we hope you have a wonderful day celebrating each other and the love you have for one another!

Now, if I could just get some pics of you :)  xoxo

Summertime Fun

Swim lessons have started for Avery.  We go every week and then after we go out to the outdoor pool and swim and play.  Avery gets to show off her new swim moves too! What a difference a couple years  make...last time she took lessons she was crying and didn't want to get into the water.  Now, she's a fish in the water!

She so badly wants to join Avery!

Grocery store trips now involve this behemoth cart with the car attached.  Genius whoever invented's terrible to push, but they LOVE it!

Ella is infatuated with this photo of Maddie and keeps going up to it saying "Hi!" to her.  It's so cute!

Pool time with our friends Alicia and Shea

 No change on me, but no problem for this one. She just wanted to sit it in and pretend to drive. 

Ella is now a showered.  She could stay in there forever and sometimes I let her while I'm getting ready.  She just loves to play in there.  It's definitely easier then baths :)

We tried out the new yogurt shop in the neighborhood while walking around Watters Creek last week.  Pretty tasty and she loved the brightly colored's the little things!

Date night with Tim!!

Friday nights at Watters Creek eating ice cream and dancing to the live music.  Must have our purse with us!

Much Needed Vacation

Tim and I just spent the last 5 days together on a much needed vacation and it was Fabulous!!  It was so relaxing and wonderful to spend time with Tim by ourselves and enjoy each other's company.  We so rarely get to do that and it was just what we needed!  

Thanks to Darmi, Poppy, Nana and Papa for watching Aves and Ella while we were away.  We appreciate and love you guys so much!  

Pics to come later but just wanted to tell my hubby how much I love him and spending time with him!

Weekend with Ella

Twice a year, Tim and Avery go with Rich and the Jurneys up to Arkansas to visit Laura & Tommy.  They just LOVE going up there and fishing, hiking, swimming, eating great food, drinking with good company (adults only of course) and just some good quality bonding time together.  Avery was counting down the days all week until they could leave and that Thursday was a pretty long day waiting for Tim to get home from work to leave...but we made it :)  

Here she is with her overloaded backpack full of coloring, games and toys to play with. 

And, her pictures she made for Laura & Tommy

Packed up and on their way.  

So, Ella and I had 3 days to ourselves and it was nice and relaxing but after one night and day of the quiet I was ready for Tim and Aves to be back!  It was fun to experience nap time again to have 2 hours to myself in the afternoon.  Saturday I took her to my parents for nap and laid out and read a book...I haven't done that in forever!  We had so much fun together!  She's my little buddy :)

Friday night we just hung out around the house and went on a bike ride and watched the motorcycles drive by.  She's infatuated with them, trucks, airplanes and helicopters!  Anything that makes a loud noise.  It's fun to run with her bcuz she can just watch the cars drive by while she's in the BOB.

Saturday morning we went up to the McKinney farmers market.  I've never been and they have it every Saturday from 8-12.  They were also having an ice cream contest, food, a band, and carnival stuff the Saturday that we went so we had a lot of fun!

Eating this yummy yogurt popsicle from one of the booths

Playing the rubber ducky game to get a prize.  She played this one over and over and over again!

One of her new toys she won...and all her bracelets

Winning at the bean bag toss :)

Eating some vanilla ice cream for lunch

I LOVE this chick!

I haven't had a chance to get the pics from Arkansas uploaded yet, but they will be soon!

Rounding Out May

Meet Finn and Sally...they came home with Tim & Ella when Tim went to the Dollar store with them for Mother's Day cards.  Ella wasn't in a stroller, she grabbed both of these at separate times and dropped them and they broke.  So, these were the joke part of my Mother's Day gifts.  Tim and I decided to start hiding them for each other to find bcuz they are so funny and they give you a good laugh when you find them.  Tim is much better at hiding her then me and she always freak me out for a second when I find her but then I just laugh!!!  

Snacktime with the sisters!


Going to see Dave Matthews with our friends Cort & Chris.  The music was kind of a bummer this year, but the company was great!!  We had so much fun with them. Wish we could get together more often.

 I think they are cuter the bigger they are on these tiny ones!

The pool is open and we are ready to swim!

 So excited to be in the water!

 Happy hour at Sonic!  Everyone is happy!

 Bubble time out back. Ella somehow actually gets some bubbles blown. I'm impressed!

Hanging out with Avery and all her friends during Ella's nap time.

 The pro bubble blower

This one is such a goofball...wearing a pair of my socks over her jambes

And a shower cap to round out the outfit!
