Big Brother

Ryan is going to be a big brother and Taylor is going to be a big sister again!  Of course, Ryan has no comprehension of what is going on, but Taylor does!  And she is so excited!  Her list of names for the baby continues to grow and includes...Butterfly, Wanda, Fluffy, Sparkles and Cranium.  She cracks me up!  She loves telling people her "secret." 

I am due April 15, so it is still very early.  I went to my doctor Tuesday to check progesterone levels and they came back great!  So, we've decided to share the good news!

Fun with friends

We spend a lot of time in the summer at the playground.  The kids especially love it when Cy and Blue come and play with them.  We met up on Saturday and the weather was wonderful!!  Cloudy and cool...perfect for playing outside!  The kids had fun, then a much needed popsicle afterward to cool off!

Ryan and his Daddy

Ryan was playing outside while Dustin was mowing today.  I looked up, and this is what I saw.  It is so cute to see him mimicking his daddy!!  I LOVE my boys!

He was really hot after all that hard work, so he cooled off with the water hose!

Dallas Trip and Mini-Cheer Camp

The kids and I headed to Dallas last weekend to see my sister Staci and soon to be brother-in-law Corbin. Boy, did they spoil us?! When we got to their apartment, which is AWESOME by the way, they had gifts set on the guest bed for the kiddos. We had hot dogs that night, then headed to the pool. The next day, we went to a splash pad/playground, ate lunch, napped and hit the pool again. That night, Corbin took us to Gatti land. The kids had a great time there!!! On Saturday, we went to the Dallas Aquarium. It was so neat! I may have loved it more than the kids, even. Saturday night, they surprised us with a trip to The Magic Time Machine. Belle was our waitress and we also saw Cinderella, Rapunzel, Esmerelda, Aladdin, Shaggy and many more. It was hard to leave after such a fun weekend.

The Sands Jr High and High School cheerleaders hosted a mini-cheer camp over the last few days. Taylor LOVED it!! They performed a pep rally for us tonight and they will also be able to perform at half time of a football game in Oct.
