Weekend trip to Tyler!

Last weekend we took the kids out of school early Thursday and headed to Tyler to visit my sister. She is making the flowers for my sister's wedding, so we all went down to help with decorations.

It is hard to get all three sisters and mom in the same place for a whole weekend, so we took advantage. We had a fun weekend of wedding shopping at Canton trade days, the dad's took the kids fishing, and we all went to a Pasture party that we were invited to from our work.

Who knows?!? LOL
Of course.. selfies, smoothies and shopping!!!

A few pics that Landon captured of the kiddos fishing. All three kiddos caught several fish.

We drove out into the pasture that Chelsea and Jeremy have and shot skeet. Laney even joined in and was able to shoot Landon's shot gun for the first time. I was way more nervous than she was, but she did great and it didn't scare her a bit.
Tough baby girl!

My main squeeze!!

Precious Mommy's Boy!

Saturday night, we headed to a pig farm just 20 miles from Chelsea and Jeremy's house for a pasture party. We had such a great time! The kids were able to chase around and feed goats, pigs and chickens, roasted marshmallows, danced and played on the playground for hours.

Legacy Royalties put this party on and invited my mom and her family. It was just gorgeous. Amazing BBQ, free beer and wine, a DJ and tons for the kids to do.

The kids were not happy to take this pic, they wanted to play! Mean Mommy!

Playground fun

We are always sad leaving Tyler, but we are so blessed to get this time together! Until next time...

Spring Break Fun

This year for Spring Break we packed up and headed to Corpus Christi. We stayed in a townhouse in North Padre. It was a fully furnished, three bedroom town home that had a kitchen and washer and dryer. It was the cutest place and we were so pleased.

The kids had a room upstairs with bunk beds, they were SO excited!

The first day started out rainy, so we loaded up and headed to the Aquarium. Luckily it turned out to be a gorgeous day. No wind, no sun, but just the perfect temperature.

Feeding the Sting Rays!

Dolphins :)
Happy Boy!!!

Watching the dolphin show.

The USS Lexington was a block away, so we walked over to take a tour. This was so neat. So many things for the kids to get on, walk on and take pictures on. The boys especially loved this ;)


Now it was time for BEACH fun. (Let me add.. the only time we got to play on the beach.. Boo, for the weather that didn't cooperate).

The big kids played in the water, even though it was freezing and had the best time. Kingston liked the sand the best. He was not happy when the cold water splashed his leg but he enjoyed digging in the sand and even tried eating it a few times. lol.

Our babies :)
My water babies for sure!
First timer at the beach!!

His favorite part.. the sand. 
The next few days, it was rainy and cold!! We drove to Port Aransas, ate at some fun yummy restaurants, went and did some outlet shopping and took the kids to an indoor trampoline park.

When we headed out, we stopped through San Antonio and took the kids to the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch (a drive thru zoo). We fed deer, a Longhorn, an ostrich and got to see lots of cool animals.

We had a great time away even though the weather didn't fully cooperate. We are hoping to go back this summer and crossing our fingers for no rain and no storms!

Kiposaurus & Kingceratops

We celebrated our Kiposaurus turning "6" and our Kingceratops turning "1" dinosaur style last month. We had the party at Kelview Baptist Church, lots of room to run and play and best part is they clean up for you afterwards. *win win*

Now here come lots of pics of the boys birthday party fun!
Sweet Birthday Boys!
Hayes Family of 5 ;)

Cousins and inseparable :)
Showed up and we all matched.. not planned! #sisters #andmom
Hayes guys!

This birthday boy dug right into his cake. He loved it and didn't even notice everyone standing around staring at him ;)

Kipton had the party to himself for presents. Kingston was asleep and slept through the second half of the party. Sugar coma possibly. LOL

We appreciate everyone who came and celebrated our little guys! We had a great time and hope you did too!

Vegas 2017

We flew out to Vegas with some friends the beginning of January. This was the first over night trip without baby Kingston. He did great, and it helped that I knew his Nanny and Papa would take great care of him.

We left on a Friday and came back Sunday night. It was a quick trip but we had so much fun.
My airplane buddy! xoxo
Katy booked us a limo for when we landed. She got us a sweet ride! It was HUGE!!
Hayes', Holster's, Grubbs and Levens!
We stayed at the Bellagio this go around. The room was so nice and the view was amazing! I don't think we would stay here again though, the food was outrageous and we didn't like the gambling as much here.

View from our room
We headed downtown Friday night. Landon had never seen this part of Vegas. Not where you would want to spend your whole weekend, but definitely worth the 15 minute taxi drive ;)

Saturday, the girls headed to a blow dry bar. We got our hair did and make up done while drinking mimosas. It was a great start to our day.

That evening we had reservations at Emerils Restaurant in the MGM. It was the best food ever!! We also went to the KA show right after. It was amazing as well!

We were exhausted come Sunday and ready to see our babies!! I for sure needed a few days to re-coop!!
P.S. Don't think any of us walked away winners, but I guess you go to Vegas knowing you will probably lose!

Until next time Vegas...
