early june happenings

what a sweet picture this is! my middle man is heading into middle school!
andy's 38th birthday was a blast! tysen made him his favorite breakfast (cereal) before work....he came home early and went for a jog (he loves that)...and then we went to a movie before dinner out! we gave him a gift card to lowes because he has been wanting some new tools...hopefully he will get to go soon and pick them out!
keeping ourselves entertained at the dentist...logan looks like a stinkin' teenager! he has literally grown so much in the past few months. won't be long before he passes me up! and then of course, smores frapps for all after enduring a long morning getting teeth cleanings!!

schlitterbahn vacation

we had been trying to think of a small family vacation, and I found a groupon deal for schlitterbahn, and we went for it! pulled the boys out of the last 3 days of school...and stayed at the resort and spent a couple days playing at the waterpark! we were worried about it raining the whole time, but it actually was perfect (in spite of some rain)....and we got plenty of fun in the sun! the boys finally agreed to try all of the rides (ok, yes we bribed them with dip'n'dots), and thankfully, they ended up loving them! their favorite was a lazy river/wave pool combo...I don't know the real name, but we called it the 'wavy lazy'....we had such a great time!!! our last stop on the way home was the pizza buffet at gattitown!

wrapping up may

well, we had some nasty weather come through at the end of the month. a tornado touched down about 2 miles from our house....and some major flooding in the same day! it had been raining like crazy all day, and as I went to pick up the boys, I barely made it through some high water, just driving one mile to the school. I called Andy, and said, there's no way I'm going back through he drove down to the park, and waited on the other side of the water for me to get Ian and Tysen. it took awhile to get the boys, and meanwhile, all entrances to our neighborhood closed because they were under water. so now, I couldn't leave the neighborhood to get Logan, and I couldn't even get home! Andy walked through the high waters (waist high) after, rescuing a little boy who tried to ride his bike through, and came to our side as we were still parked at the school. we ended up leaving our car at the school, and catching a ride from this guy who happened to be driving past us in this huge army truck! the boys thought it was pretty of our neighbors picked up logan from school, but they couldn't even get into our neighborhood until after 6pm, as so many roads in bryan were flooded. it was a crazy day!!!!

officially ending school with an ICECREAM EMERGENCY!! its hard to catch logan asleep since he stays up later, but he did go to bed, and we got them up at 9:30pm and ran for some emergency icecream....
we were driving to fort worth to celebrate Haley's graduation, and we made a quick stop to see the Spooners, since I had a few things to give her. it was only like 30 minutes...but it was so good to hold and play with Declan for a bit!
stayed the night in fort worth and had a fun dinner for Haley! of course, that morning, papaw and the boys went out for was a quick visit, but fun to see everyone!
