July 4th Weekend

Better late than never I suppose.

Aunt Jill and Great Aunt Debbie had us all out to Tyler for the Saturday before the 4th of July - the 2nd.  Jill has completely renovated her old home in Tyler and it looks so GOOD.  Not sure why I haven't featured it yet on The House Enthusiast.  Oh yeah.  I'm lazy. 

"Stay tuned for Jill's renovation on The House Enthusiast!"

Anyway, she had her back yard all decked out.  There was a zip line, trampoline (brand new), a fire pit (not used ... because July in Texas), two big fans, and picnic tables.  I was impressed. The boys had a great time with their cousins and I got to catch up with family.

 Hey - Cristy finally showed up!

Just chilling - or at least trying not to bake


 Of all the things offered here in Jill's Backyard they choose to play in the dog crates.

 Maci eating a watermelon.  Christopher told us he ate 8 pieces..... 

 Woah.  When did Andy show up?  And of course I have NO pictures of his illusive wife.

 Girls only

 Here we are, pretending to look at my phone.  I'm sure it's off. 
 Also pretty sure Christopher is back there eating watermelon.

Thank you Jill and Debbie for the wonderful day!!!

Just Keep Swimming - 6th Birthday Party

Wow, It's been a while since my last post.  We've been settling into the new house and the boys had another birthday.  They are 6 now... I can't believe it.  They are my most favorite people in the world.

They have also both lost their 2 bottom front teeth.  This was the last picture of them both before that started.

This was taken by my talented cousin Wendi Kessler

For their birthday we took a couple of kids to play at Shenaniganz and then had their classmates over for a pool party.  It was an all day affair.

They had a great time!  Aside from all the kids, Aunt Peggy, Uncle Pete, Uncle Bobby, DiDi, Pop, Terry, Chris, Marc, Laura, Kellye and Stefan were there.  That means that mommy had a good time too :-)
