Start of summer :)

The school year ended with Cade graduating from Little Gym and getting a gold medal! He was so proud.

We spent Mother's Day weekend in Houston. We enjoyed seeing many friends. And we were blessed to become Godparents to Victoria De Lisi. Aryn and PJ De Lisi are two of my best friends from high school. I can't explain how special it was to be asked to be a part of Victoria's family forever. We also were able to see my mom's side of the family and Claire finally met Papa Glen and Grandma Karen. It was a busy, but awesome weekend. And I had the best Mother's Day ever with my family and my high school best friend Aryn at the Kemah Boardwalk!

We spent Memorial Day Weekend visiting the Langford / Bray clan in McKinney and Oklahoma.
The visit was fantastic!
My younger sister-in-law, Mandy, and her husband, Adam, recently bought a home. It's in McKinney- north of Dallas. Their home is fantastic! Gorgeous neighborhood and beautiful home. I am so happy for them! God loves this couple! Cade and Claire both loved visiting their home. Claire showed us that she is a wine girl and Cade proved to us that he truly is a ladies man, he loves to vacuum!

Then we headed North to Oklahoma. The trip was long, Texas is just big! But it was so worth it!!!! We stayed with Meme and Papa Thad. Cade rode Uncle Tom's tractor and Claire cuddled with all the family. We enjoyed sporting our red-white-and blue on Memorial Day in honor of the American soldiers!

I have to say- Cade, Claire, and I sure hit the jackpot when we got placed into this family! God is GOOD! We love the Langfords and Brays!

This summer is going to be busy. Cade is in swimming lessons all of June and he starts gymnastics weekly as well. Claire's plans are to lounge in the pool and stay cool!

We will be heading to Schlitterbahn next weekend, friends visit at the end of June, Vegas July 4th, San Fransisco mid July! If you need us- we will be on a plane, in a hotel, or by a pool! XOXO

Claire's 1st Road Trip and Merry Christmas from Us!

Claire had her 1st road trip to Austin, Texas for Aunt Carrie's wedding. She was a perfect angel the entire trip and for the entire weekend of fabulous wedding festivities! We even allowed her to have her 1st experience in a photo booth- I think she's a photogenic angel! Daddy and I obviously had a great time too!
And of course- Santa stopped by our house the following weekend.
Gigi, PaPa Chip, and Uncle Jarret came to visit us for the holiday weekend. We kept the Valley tradition and had a Mexican feast on Christmas Eve- consisting of tamales, rice, beans, and of course guac and queso! The power went out on Christmas Eve which allowed for some interesting family bonding and a comical assembly of Cade's bike by "Santa" with a flashlight and wine in hand! Thank God Santa still found our house in the dark!!!! It was an awesome Christmas morning, Cade had a blast, and Claire- well she was so excited that she slept through the entire morning! This was a Christmas weekend I will never forget!
