Minute Maid Park!

Hunter's friend Ryan recently celebrated his 6 birthday at Minute Maid Park...home to the Houston Astros baseball team!!! It was a lot of fun and something I'm sure these boys will remember for many years to come. They had the party in one of the suites and got a behind the scenes tour. They even got to walk on the field, as long as they did not touch the grass. Hunter had fun playing in the dug out with his buddies. He actually left his cute little John Deer hat in the dug out :( We had a great time and what a beautiful day it was!

Hunter's Special Visitors For Lunch!

Hunter is settling into Kindergarten easier than we ever could've imagined. He seems to be thriving being at a larger school learning what is expected of him as an individual, and with his peers as a large group. He has gained a lot of responsiblity as well as knowledge. He is counting to 100 now all by himself. He is also reading about 30 words now and quickly adding to that. He illustrates small books at school with his own pictures, and brings them home and reads to us. We are SO proud of him and amazed by how quickly he is learning

Cousin Benjamin's First Trip to Texas!

Trying to catch on this blog today. Let's go back to early October. Pam, Chuck, and Benjamin made it to Texas for a short visit to attend Dad and Debbie's wedding reception. Lot's of fun times were had by all. Benny got to meet his Grandmommy (Gee) and great Uncle Bill and great Aunt Rachel. The younger generation ruled the house and enjoyed lots of chasing and playing. Can't wait to get them all together again for Thanksgiving!!!

Future UT Dance Team Girl!

Haley has become quite the little dancer lately. Check out her new moves on this video. Poor Hunt man....he wanted to dance with her so bad but she just wouldn't pay him any attention.

Sea World!

I'm a little behind and out of order. So backing up to the end of the summer...we took Haley for her first trip to Sea World and of course Hunter was glad to show her all about it. It was 103 degrees that day and WHAT WAS I THINKING!? So from now on we will be going to Sea World in the early Spring. We made it to the Shamu show and the Sea Lion show and saw the penguins and visited with the dolphins before enough was enough. We then made our way to sanity in the water park and spent the rest of the day there. The kids loved it all..lots of giggles and smiles, and lots of snow cones and souveniers were had.

Then we made our way to "Tractor" Uncle Bill and Aunt "Pancakes" Rachel's house for the weekend. Rachel and Bill are always great hosts and we all enjoyed some quality time together. They took us to a great pool in the hill country to cool down and get out of the heat. Hunter and Haley even saw some deer running around the pool area. It was a wonderful end to a long hot summer.

Quality Time With Our Little Monkeys!
