Beach Fun with Aunt Jen.

Tons and Tons of pics... Aunt Jen (Michael's Sister) was in Town and we had so much fun!!! Enjoy.


My brother, Jared, and his family came in from Austin earlier this month. All of our boys are so close in age and we had so much fun together... Here they are one morning getting some of the morning cartoons taken care of... (L to R) Andrew, William, Taylor, and Cade.

Summer Favorites

I remeber when I was little loving to play in the mud. My cousins and I would play for hours, and always ended the day serving one of our famous Mud Pies to Grandma. :) My boys equally love the mud and all things outside. Here are some fun pics of the boys "being boys" :)

I want to stop today and just tell you how much MY HUSBAND ROCKS!!
Michael is such a supportive husband, and father. I love the way he is able to joke and be silly with our boys, be stern and loving with our boys, and be their true hero and spiratual leader. I love to hear the wonderful things they have to say about their father.. and what a wonderful example he is to all of us. This was really made obvious to me earlier today when William was having some serious behavior issues. I am constantly amazed at the calmness that comes over Michael when he is talking to the boys, something I struggle with greatly! I am so thankful that God has blessed me with such a wonderful husband and such a strong role model for our entire family, especially our boys!!

Today I just want to share some of the fun things the boys shared with me about Daddy:
What is your favorite thing to do with Daddy? Cuddling
What is the silliest thing Daddy does? Reading stories with a silly voice, and playing horsey
What is your favorite game to play with Daddy?Rock Band :) yes he really does love it!

What is your favorite thing to do with Daddy: Work with him and stay with him
What is the silliest thing Daddy does? Tickle me
What is your favorite game to play with Daddy? Golf

Daddy is our Super Hero!! I Love you Bestie Loopa!!

Friends, Food, and Fun!

Monday, We headed to Brewsters Street for a night of food and fun. The boys had a blast and Michael and I really enjoyed getting to know a new friend. Thanks for joining us Jeff, it was a lot of fun. Cade on the swing.. sorry it's so out of focus.

Brennan climbin on the slides

William is so sweet to watch out for his baby. Here they are going down the slide.

Pool Time!! Part 1

The last Tuesday in June we were able to join my brother, Jared, and his family in New Bransfels and spend the day at Schlitterbahn. We were a little scared of how Brennan would do, but it turned out to be a great day!! We spent most of the day at Surfenburg, but did go to Blastenhoff for the torent river and some of the larger slides. Jared and Andrew (2) infront of the pirate ship

Callie and Taylor(6) hangin out and having a snack.

Sweet Andrew He was so tired!

The Pirate ship

Brennan having a blast splashing!

Cade loved the slides

William did too, but really loved the Black Knight and Master Blaster!

Coolin off

William also did Swim Lessons June 14-24
And I would like to annonce that he swam all by himself the width of the lane!!!
Yeah for William, we are so proud of him. This was a big feat from where we started the beginning of Swim season.

William is crawling out of the pool here.

Hangin on like a little monkey!


One day while Brennan was sleeping, and William and I were building train tracks, Cade walked into the bedroom with a spoon and chocolate all over his face. As soon as I saw him I knew what had happened... Lets just say Pantry door opened, and Nesquick chocolate milk powder on the bottom shelf. I'm still not sure how much he ate, but I do know there was chocolate powder tracked all through the house. So what did I do, of course I sent him to the bathroom to wash his hands and face while I cleaned up the mess. A few minutes later, I begin to realize Cade has never returned from the bathroom, so I went to see what he was into next. (He is always into something). And I found... a once full 10 oz spray bottle of Bath Oil EMPTY! Empty on the counter, cabinet, stool, bathroom floor, bedroom floor, and then tracked into the laundry room and eventually down the hall. Can I just tell you all.... this was officially the biggest mess I have ever had to clean up. I'm still not sure what actually broke the grease.. but it was one of 6 different things I tried. Yes, Cade survived through the day and so did I. That stinker... I love him so much.
