Surfside 2010

Our Sunday School class rented a beach house in Surfside in early August, so I loaded up the kids and took them down there with 3 other families for the first part of the week (the second part of the week/weekend was for adults only). They loved every minute of it!

This was the first of many sharks that were caught throughout the week!

Sam wasn't able to attend for the first part of the week, which means that I got to drive all the way back to College Station, pass the kids off to his parents, pick him up and head back down to Surfside! It was a fun week/weekend and something that we will definitely plan on doing next summer!

Our Trip to Fort Worth

At the end of June we made a quick trip up to Fort Worth to visit some friends, eat some yummy food and enjoy the big city!

Our first adventure was to the newly remodeled children's museum. It was closed the entire time we lived up there, so I was excited when our old neighbors recommended we go there for a play date! It was huge and had lots of neat things for the kids to do!

We were able to hang out with Carter's best friend - Carter L.! He still talks about him often and asks when we are going to go visit him again!

Sam has raved about a new restaurant called the "Love Shack" that opened recently, so we decided to try it out. The kids loved playing with the chalk and dancing on the stage, and I thought the food was really good!
Unfortunately my camera ran out of batteries so these are all the pictures I have from our trip. It also rained most of the time we were there so we weren't able to do the zoo or train like we had planned. We meant to get back up there all summer but could just never find the time! Hopefully we will be able to go up there for a quick weekend getaway next month!

Chalk Talk 2010

Now that school is finally back in session I have a little time to actually to do things like update my blog!

In July I had the opportunity to attend Chalk Talk, a night of friends and football (what could be better)! It was so much fun that I am already looking forward to next year!

Hanging out with Dat Nguyen!
Football business

Practicing my moves

The locker room

It was hard to wait for football season to begin after that night - but now it is here and all is well! Gig'em!!!

Ally is 3!!!

I seriously cannot believe that my BABY is three!!! Ally was so excited to turn three and celebrate her birthday that we had to start counting down weeks in advance!

Ally was able to celebrate her birthday with her classmates on the third day of school. She requested pink and purple cupcakes and she loved sharing them with her friends! My camera wasn't working very well that day so most of the pictures came out blurry.

Ally wanted to have a princess birthday party at Powersports (where she took gymnastics). She loved it!!!

It was such a great day!! We are so happy that the Lord blessed us with such a loving little girl!!!
