At the "beach" near Lake Granbury
Check out the sandcastle!
I love that little face!
Cammie and Gabby are twins.
We were wondering where Alex went, and the next thing we knew he was coming down stairs with one of Mackenzie's new bows on his head with a silly grin on his face.
One of our many mornings on the back porch drinking coffee and playing with Grandmommy's dogs, Carter and Sadie.
This is at the the pool in the neighborhood.
At the carnival that came to town in Granbury over Memorial Day weekend.
Granddaddy won Gabby and Cammie bears...it only took him 10 tries to pop 3 balloons with the darts in a row!
Priceless. Gabby is the only one who enjoyed this ride. It spun around and around...Colton and Cammie didn't like it so much.
Not quite the Dumbo ride at Disney world, but we're working our way up!
Just Hangin' with cousins!
Megan and Mackenzie
It's a good thing that we took a picture, b/c we ended up returning the slip and slide due to a hole in it. Oh, well. I think I'll maybe buy a sprinkler next time instead.
We have been SUPER busy the past couple of weeks. Gabby has officially graduated preschool. Dance classes are over, and I can proudly say we are free from commitments for now...that is until I sign her up for swim lessons soon. We have spent the last week in Granbury with my Mom. Gabby and Alex had a blast. We spent Memorial weekend with my sister Jennifer and her in-laws and my brother Lance....which means cousins galore. My kids enjoyed spending time with they're cousins and chillin' out. Our regular routine was thrown out the window, and donuts and coffee were served every morning for breakfast. Bedtime was later. Naptime was short and sometimes nonexistant. Needless to say we were all tired by the end of our trip. But everyone had a great time! We lunched at several tearooms which thrilled Gabby to have her drink in a tea cup. We shopped at the square. We took walks around my parents new neighborhood, which I like to call the ghost neighborhood b/c there are more houses for sale than people living in the neighborhood. Every house is an open house. So we would walk a little bit, look at a house, then walk a little ways and then look at another house. It was kinda weird to walk around an empty neighborhood, but the kids loved it and it wore them out for bedtime. One day we went to a public beach in Granbury, and other than a few distasteful locals who cussed and wore skimpy swimsuits and let their dog poop right in the water, it was a great experience. Gabby and Alex loved playing in the sand and walking on the long pier across the water. And Mackenzie enjoyed sticking her feet in the sand. On the way home, we stopped at the outlet malls in Cypress and had such a great time! I will be going back for school clothes. Overall, it was a great way to start out summer vacation. Now we are back to our regular routine and soaking up these last few months before Gabby and Alex start school.
