Where's the Floss?

I was trying to get the kids in the bath the other night and Reese escaped.  This is how I found her a couple minutes later...

What can I do people?  Really?  I'm just glad she has good hygiene.  At least I'm teaching her something, right?

One Last Ounce of Summer

Grammy and Grandpa came in town last weekend so we headed to the lake.  We hadn't been to Granbury beach in over a year and it was really fun to see how much more they enjoyed it this time.  Even Ms. Priss wasn't afraid to get a little wet this year.

Tucker was literally swimming like a fish.  He's fearless and sometimes it makes me a nervous wreck.  He was all over the place and loved every minute of it. 

Grammy was a great sport... the kids got her soakin' wet! We were originally planning to spend the afternoon on the boat so not everyone came prepared to swim.  Thanks for playing with us in the water Grammy!
Reese was really in rare form all weekend.  She was really excited to have Grammy and Grandpa here... she was eating up every minute of attention.  I was afraid we were going to have to put the girl on Ritalin or something.  She had so much fun!

After playing at the beach we went to Granbury square for some ice cream and shopping...
Tucker ate this whole apple... literally core and all.  I think there's some law against that or something.  It was a good thing Chris noticed how he was eating it so he could get rid of the seeds.  That boy loves apples.  It's so funny b/c Reese literally won't touch them. 

Grandbury is a girl kind of town.  The boys rode out to the land after ice cream so the ladies could shop for a while.  I know I've mentioned it before, but I love small Texas towns.  It would be fun to open a boutique in a town square someday.  A girl can dream.

It was a great weekend and we were all sad to see Grammy and Grandpa go.  The kids are looking forward to riding Thomas the Train with them in a few weeks.  Thanks for a fun weekend!! See you soon!

No Pink Things After Dark

While Chris and I were out of town last weekend, my parents took the kids to Six Flags.  Talk about spoiled...

Games, prizes, "pink things" at 9:30 at night.  It's official... there are no rules when they go with Grandma and Grandpa. The kids have to go through detox from all the Koo-laid and CocaLella when they get home, but its worth it to hear about all the fun they had. 

It's official... they had a blast.  Mom said they were up until midnight... hmmm, probably due to the pink things.

Thanks for watching the kids all weekend and for spoiling them like crazy.  They had so much fun and were asking for you for days!

City Slickers

Chris and I spent the weekend at a ranch in Clarendon, TX.  It's probably not one of the top vacation spots in TX, but we loved it.  We started planning a long weekend several weeks ago and somehow ended up booking a trip to a Dude Ranch... complete with cowboys, horses, a chuck wagon and about 30 guys dressed like the old west packin' six shooters.  It was a blast.  I probably won't be able to sit down for a week, but it was worth it.  We spent a good 10-12 hours on horses this weekend and loved every minute of it. 
Here's me and Chris on Macaroni and Ralph.  All the horses were great... well trained and beautiful.  I was excited that we actually got to "ride".  None of this walkin' along a trail stuff.  We got to take off for a while on Saturday and ride on our own.  For a minute, we pretended they were ours. Someday.
I love it that I found a man that wants the same things I want... land, horses, life in the country.  We had so much fun together this weekend... playing and dreaming about what we're going to do with our land.

This is the chuck wagon they use when they go on the cattle drives.  You know Chris wants to go back next summer and do that.  5 days sleeping under the stars.  I'm thinking I'll skip that one.  I actually like to bathe.

We saw lots of animals while we were there... cows, deer, longhorns...

Horses (obviously)...

And even some buffalo...
Did you know that buffalo will breed with cows and the offspring are called Beefaloes?  Seriously, I'm not making this stuff up. 

Overall it was a great weekend!  I'm starting to really love it that Chris is morphing into a cowboy...
How can you not love a man in boots?

Don't Call Me a Dumb Jock

Tucker just wanted to make sure you knew that Reese isn't the only brain in the family...

You should see Reese quizzing Tucker over his colors.  Talk about hilarious.  Of course, they boycotted when I tried to get it on video.    Hearing Reese say "What color is this" and Tucker yelling out the color would make you laugh out loud.

Man I wish they were learning this stuff from me.  Mysteriously, they just keep getting smarter.  I'm sure I owe it all to Nana Cheryl.
