family vacation

this past weekend, champ and mimi treated us to a fabulous long weekend getaway at the Westin La Cantera!
we lounged by the pool, ate fabulous meals, and shopped 'til we dropped!
thank you, mom and dad, for such a great family vacation!
we treasure the time we spend together.

here are some of our favorite pics from the weekend...

cade rockin' his cool new shades, poolside.

we all loved sliding with cade!



mimi opted to go "no hands" by herself!

Dada loves Cade so much! 

i love these two boys more than words can say!

loving the pool 

Cade is the center of attention! 
Margaret's best-friend Ali also joined us for the weekend, 
she's like a part of the fam :)

love. love. love.

so long june, hello july

I don't know where last month went!
Maybe it went by so fast because I was chasing Cade around the house...
and he wasn't crawling.
Cade started walking!!!!!!!
Yes, walking.
He took his first steps a few days before he turned 10 months old.
We've had the most fun watching him waddle around.
He is so proud of himself!

Here are some other pics of what we've been up to lately...

i've been teaching him sign language, and this is the sign for "all done"
well, it's close. but he knows that it means he's finished and is ready to get down.
i love being able to communicate with him that way.

l.o.v.e.s. being naked

 loves mohawks during bathtime

like i said, loves the nakedness

he is cute enough to get away with almost anything

his first bites of french toast, huge fan!

first bite of watermelon.
now he's a watermelon fanatic!

we played in the pool a lot over july 4th

those eyes, they make you melt

notice how he's all ready for bed...
he is now defying bedtime.
it's crazy. he used to love sleep.
he got away with it once because dada was gone and i wanted a buddy for the night,
but not again!

that's a wrap up of our last few weeks, hope you enjoyed it!
we hope you all are doing well, too!

memorial day weekend

We are so blessed to live in a free country & 
are incredibly thankful to those who sacrificed for those freedoms.

Memorial Day weekend was a great start to summer!

we had lots of fun cookin' it up in mom's newly updated kitchen!

Champ & Cade loved swimming in the pool

Cade loved eating and relaxing...just like his daddy

i love hanging out with him :)

Yes, Josh was there, he was just our personal
photographer all weekend :) 
Thanks, hon!



Cade's favorite time of day,
besides meal time,
is playtime!
He is absolutely adorable as he crawls around
and explores all of the toys in his playroom.
I treasure these moments with him each day.

loves crawling around with his bat

happy 21st birthday, champ!

On May 14th Champ celebrated his 21st birthday
...or something close to that number!

Champ and Mimi treated the fam to an absolutely delicious meal
at the only 5 star restaurant in Texas! 
Dos Brisas.  
It was a true experience.
We loved spending the evening together,
only the "grown ups."
Cade was well taken care of by some of our closest friends.
We made such great memories that night.
We love you, Dad!

we love our daddy-o!
the whole fam (minus a little someone)
just being silly
The Dos Brisas wine cellar had over 7,000 bottles!
