Preschool Graduation

My baby is a graduate!!  Graham graduated from preschool last week! 

There was a preschool program with a circus theme.  Graham decided to go as a human cannonball.

The four year olds get the esteemed privilege of riding in on electric cars!  It's so fun to watch because the kids really look forward this every year.  Graham took his driving duties quite seriously!

After the circus portion, the pre-k class changed into their cap and gown. 

He was given a diploma by his great teachers, Ms. Dina and Ms. Robyn.

My sweet boy is all set for kindergarten....but is his mama ready to send him???

Ready or not, here he comes!!

Mother's Day Brunch

This year we went with a more casual fiesta theme for our annual Mother's Day brunch! This is such a fun event, and I look forward to it every year.

Clare was our graphic designer, and she printed the menus!

My kids are so lucky to have three sets of grandparents around, and this is just a small gesture of our appreciation for all they do to help us through the year!

After brunch, we exchanged gifts. 

It was a nice way to start Mother's Day weekend!

Saturday Back-Up Plans!

The rains cancelled our Saturday sporting events, which allowed us to attend Casey's company picnic!  The kids look forward to this every year, so we were excited to get to go!

Batting cages!

Mini Golf!


Lots of tattoos!

Pony rides!

Water balloon toss!

And bumper boats!

Sometimes a rained out Saturday schedule isn't such a bad thing....when you have backup plans as fun as these!

Celebrate Good Times!

Graham's birthday brought with it lots of birthday celebrations!  We started last weekend with a birthday party.  Graham requested a "sports" bounce house with a Star Wars cake...so that's what we did!

We went with Star Wars cupcakes, actually!

The boys bounced their hearts out, and then started batting practice with Casey!

The piƱata was fun, although it didn't take them long to break it!

After all of his friends left, the family stuck around to celebrate!  Graham loved having Brody at both events!

Another party called for another cake!

On Graham's actual birthday, there was more fun to be had!  Graham was quite celebrated at school!

On his birthday night, our family went to the Rough Riders game!  The weather was perfect, and it was such a fun night.

Graham's name was on the jumbotron!

There was lots of good baseball talk between these two!

 We met Deuce, the mascot!

The highlight of the night was when Graham got a ball!

We finished the night with the kids running the bases.  It was a great night celebrating our new FIVE year old!

10th Birthday Getaway!

In lieu of a birthday party, Casey and I decided to steal Clare away for a short little getaway!  We took her to Fort Worth and started at the Stockyards.   

The first thing on the agenda was the Amazing Race maze.  Clare conquered it in 23 minutes!!

We went and checked into the hotel and got ourselves cleaned up.  It was a beautiful weekend, and we let Clare pick our restaurant.  She picked an outdoor barbecue spot, and it was delicious! 

Clare loves staying in a hotel!  She especially loved waking up first thing and heading to the indoor pool!

Sunday morning we walked over to the Water Gardens, and then headed to brunch on Sundance Square.

Clare told us the last thing she wanted to do was go back and do the maze again.  Since it was her weekend, we obliged.  She improved her time by 2 minutes!!

It was such a fun weekend, and I am so glad we started this 10th birthday tradition.  Casey and I enjoyed spending time with our oldest girl so much.  What a special weekend!
