Big Boy!

Today was Trey's first day of Mother's Day Out. He should have started last week, but with the baby coming, I decided to keep him home until we got all settled. He has been going to the same MDO for two years, but I kept the kids home all summer so I was worried about how he would act. I thought he may be sad about me leaving him. Boy was I wrong!

He was so excited and wanted to talk all morning about the fun things they were going to do. He said he would color me a pretty picture and he would be nice to all of his friends!

He is in the 2-3 class this year, which is the "Potty training" class. He will wear pullups and be taking bathroom breaks throughout the day. He is doing really well with potty training these days. He will almost always go #1 in the potty, but NEVER #2. Hopefully MDO will help with that, cause talk about a mess! :)

When we got to the church everyone wanted to see Lakyn and kept asking Trey about his sister. Everytime he would say, "She's at school, or Harleigh's at big school." He doesn't get it yet that Lakyn is his sister too! LOL! My big boy walked right into his class and gave me a big kiss and was talking Ms. Sue's ear off when I left. I'm so proud of him!

Mother/ Daughter Day!

I spent Saturday with five of my favorite people! My Mom, Aunts, and cousins! My Mom has two sisters, and all three sisters have one daughter. We grew up pretty close, but now, Morgan lives in California because her husband is in the Navy. She was here for the summer, so we planned a Mother/ Daughter Day at Old Town Spring! The weather was perfect, and so was the company! We shopped, ate, shopped and ate some more! ha! We had such an awesome time and I wish we could do this more often.

All of us together... My Mom, Aunt Bridget, Aunt Cheryl, Me, Ashley, & Morgan. Notice a resemblance?

My Mom and her gorgeous sisters! Look just like their Momma! :)

My Mom and I

Morgan & Cheryl, I just LOVE this picture, they are so beautiful inside and out!

Aunt Bridget and Leigh are two of the funnest, prettiest women I know!

We had so much fun and got a lot of cute boutique stuff! The only thing that could have made the day any better is if Our Mimi had been there. But she was in our hearts and we talked and laughed about her the entire day! Love you girls, and can't wait for our next get- together!

Daddy's Home!

Josh just got home from Monticello, Utah. This was his second year to go on a mule deer/elk hunt. I was a little upset that he was leaving for 12 days so close to my due date, but we got through it. Thank God I didn't have this baby while he was gone. He would have NEVER heard the end of it! lol! The day before he left we spent the day together as a family. We went to Bass Pro Shops in Pearland and it was so neat! I have been to Bass Pro plenty of times but I'm always impressed! Then we went to the Downtown Aquarium.

Our sweet babies pretending like they like each other! j/k They have been getting along really well lately!

Josh and Harleigh posing in the aquarium. Somehow we managed to skip the carnival. I love our kids being little because they don't notice stuff like that most of the time. Instead, we bought tickets and walked through to see all of the fish and reptiles before we ate. It was really nice since it was in the air conditioning! :)

And yes, they had a Bengal Tiger. It was really neat, but sad! He seemed so lonely and the area they have him in is so unnatural. It was all concrete and there was nothing wild about it. I felt sorry for the poor guy, but he sure is beautiful!

Here we all are waiting for our table at The Aquarium. We were so sad that Daddy was leaving and we are so happy he is home now!

What would a nice family dinner out be without a fun dessert? This is The Shark Attack, and it was soooo good! :)
