Emma's Shark

Have I told you how much Emma loves her shark tent? It's so funny. It's a really cute tent shaped like a shark - hence why it's called her "shark tent"!

My neighbor was out shopping & called me to tell me what she had found, thought Emma would like it & asked if I wanted to get it - so I thought sure. Why not? So glad I did b/c Emma LOVES it! As a matter of fact she has slept in it a couple of nights & even napped in it during the day a couple of times. When I told my parents she had a tent thought bought her a cute sleeping bag (Emma just calls it her "Bag") to use in it - works out perfectly!

This is one evening she wanted to spend the night in her tent - I think she was already asleep at this point, though usually she wants it zipped up!

She even got my mother in on the action - yes, that is my mother inside the tent with her!!

Don't stare too long...

Happy Father's Day

To the two most important men in my life and in my little girl's life! And to all the other daddies out there...Happy Father's Day!

Fun on the Boardwalk

We had such a great time today - it was so HOT, but it was fun to get out in the sun & play! We went down to Kemah today and met Steven, Jamie & Katelynn for lunch. We ate at the Flying Dutchman then took the girls out to play in the water. Such a relief from the heat, too! I welcomed all the times they splashed us!! They girls had snow cones & took a ride (a couple actually - they didn't want to get off) on the carousel, too!

After we got home & rested a bit, we walked down to the neighbor's house, too and Emma played outside with Gus for a while, too. Needless to say she had a fun & full day! I think she is going to sleep so well tonight!

I love date nights...

but sure miss my little wake up call in the mornings crawling in the bed with us!!

And it never fails when she spends the night on a Saturday night with my parents, Michael and I end up sleeping late and missing church, too. At least I know Emma went to church this morning with my parents.

Michael and I had a great time last night. We went to see The Hangover last night. I have to admit I really did not have high expectations about it - even though several people said they really liked it and thought it was hysterical. So many comedies today end up disappointing me b/c they are just more stupid than funny. The Hangover, though was not one of those - it was truly very funny!!

After the movie we headed home & realized it was still pretty early - we made it to the house and decided to go out for a while instead - so, we kept driving and headed back out to a local hangout; however, on the way we decided that since we weren't really dressed to go out and knew if we went in to change w…

Shark ate my baby!!!

Our neighbor found this for Emma today!! She's having a blast!!

Trail Ride

I need you...lay down with me.

That's Emma's new line at night when I'm tucking her in. We go to bed, say our prayers, gives hugs & kisses to daddy, then I sing her a song and give hugs & kisses, "night night", I love you's - it's a whole long orchastrated thing! Only now after all that she tells me, "I need you. Lay down with me" when I'm trying to walk out the door. It's hard to resist honestly cuz it's so sweet and being the cuddler that I am anyway, I take advantage of any cuddle moments I can get! So, I usually go back for a tight squeeze or two, say night night again and make it out the door just a few moments later than planned. No worries.

She has recently, though started climbing out of bed several times before finally going to sleep at night. I've always been thankful for how easily she goes down for naps and to bed at night, so I can't really complain about this & really I'm not. It usually doesn't last longer than thirty minu…


Riding the trolley in San Antonio - I am not really sure what she was Ooohhing about!

Summer is upon us...

June is here...can you believe it?

Back to our regularly scheduled show

Our week of vacation is over and we're back at work today. Had to happen sometime!

We did have a great week off, though - even through the sad part - it was nice to not be gone the entire time so we were able to be at home a few days and relax. Saturday night before we left Kadie had her 30th B'day/Guitar Hero party. We had such a great time and it was so fun to dress up, too - everyone was asked to dress "rock". I was happy Michael got into it like he did - he normally hates to do any kind of costume.

We didn't head out of town until Monday morning. Emma had stayed with my parents Sunday after we grilled at their house with my sister and her husband so Michael and I were packed and back at their house early Monday morning to pick them all up. We hit the road a little after 9:00 and made it to San Antonio in record time. Our hotel was on the outskirts of town, away from the River Walk, but close to Sea World which was the point of the trip anyway. So we took our ti…
