Sunny Saturday

We headed to an event called Kids in the Kitchen on Saturday, and the girls had a great time! It was put on by the Junior League, and they had all different things to help encourage a healthy lifestyle for kids. They played in a bounce house, made popcorn at the Little Chef's Academy table, planted some grass to bring home, talked to some doctors, looked at the amount of sugar in some of their favorite junk food, got their faces painted & played with their cousins! It was a lot of fun! Now, let's just see if we can get them to eat some healthy veggies!

A fun day at the park=

a GREAT nap for this little girl!!

We met up with Monda and Jonah for a playdate at the park today! It was about time since we missed Jonah's 2nd Birthday back in March! The girls had a lot of fun with Jonah, and Reese even planted a big 'ol kiss on Jonah! He is a cutie! We will have to get together again soon, Monda! We had a lot of fun!

My FAVORITE shots from today! How cute are they?

March For Babies

We all 4 headed to the March for Babies along with 6 other families from Mom's Club on Saturday, and the weather was perfect! It was a very pretty walk around Whiterock Lake in Dallas, and then we enjoyed a catered lunch, a bouncehouse & snow cones! It was a good day and for such a good cause!

Thank you very much for all of the support from my friends and family!

Very neat...

We were driving home from my Mom's house yesterday, and it started to sprinkle a little. We turned to go by and see Johnny at work, and look at what I saw as I was driving!
It was the biggest, prettiest rainbow I have ever seen! Ashton thought it was SO neat! I'm not sure that she has ever seen a real rainbow. She was also determined that we were going to go look for the pot of gold at the end! Too cute!!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!

A new baby girl...

I am sitting here thinking about my good friend, Jen! She went in at 6:00 this morning for a scheduled c-section at 7! Jen and I have been friends since 4th grade, and she also had her first baby about 3 weeks after Reese was born! So, Grover is going to be a big brother!! In fact, he is probably ALREADY a big brother! So excited to hear all about Avery Jewel's arrival!

The things they say...

On the way to the dr the other day, Reese said "Look Mommy, giddyup!" as she saw the horses out the window! I wonder if she thinks that horses are called giddy-ups? Too cute.

Then, we ran by the post office today, and a man held the door open for us. Ashton loves to hold the door open so we have had the discussion about men holding the door open being a good thing! Ashton said "Wow, he is a gentleman, Mommy". Then, Ashton held the door on the way out, and she said "Does that make me a gentle-girl, Mommy?".

Don't you just love the cute and funny things that your kids say?
