Mostly just picture posts for the unforeseeable future. Blah but it'll have to do. Sorry, Texas.

Just some pictures from a great night out with a few long time
friends and my brother and sister in law.

Love all of y'all!

Nana insisted on doing an unbirthday party for Cole and Brooke while we were in town since they don't get to be with them for their actual parties anymore. 

 The kids always love swimming, presents and cake soooo why not, right?  So sweet!

Brooke's love of horses seems to be never ending...And apparently someone is going to have to buy her one.  Soooo if anyone wants to become an instant hero and do that for my beautiful baby girl, it would be GREATLY appreciated. :)
My brother and his family just so happen to now live right down the road from some horse hoarders that give lessons/rides.  My sister-in-law and I took the girls out there to ride them and they were so happy. 
Brooke could just sit perfectly still on a horse and be in hog heaven.
It's really kinda sweet.

Thank you so much, Gena and Breanna, for doing that for Brooke!

We were in Texas just a couple weeks shy of the year anniversary of Nathan's Grandpa's passing.  We took the kids to see his headstone at the Dallas/Fort Worth National Cemetery.  Such a beautiful place.  The kids were great in waiting patiently while their daddy took it all in and shared a few moments with his own dad.  It's breathtaking looking at the love and care that goes into the upkeep of the grounds.

My brothers and I have all managed to make some really cute kids.
And I must say...Pretty impressive! :)

Emiley, Caleb, Dayley
Brooke, Breanna, Carley & Cole

How on earth are my nieces
almost taller than me?

And I'm 5'10" for crying out loud!

A visit to a humongous room full of bounce houses and such with Grandma and Grandpa.
Germs, sweaty pits, static attack and vinyl road rash...Now that's a rockin' good time!

Brooke was annoyed with my picture obsession because she was too busy playing this horse game over and over again that she couldn't even read or understand what to do.  In the meantime, Cole won 1,000 tickets on a spinning wheel game and then got so unbelievably lucky on this throw-your-money-away grab machine.  The claw miraculously got hooked on the tag of the ball.

Fun times with the cousins and grandparents...
We love and miss them all so very much!
