Today we came for a quick visit to College Station,
and Mimi took us to some pretty bluebonnet patches she found! 
Cade had a great time...eating them! haha

Happy spring!

yee-haw cowboy

every year fort bend baptist academy hosts a 
rodeo day to kick off rodeo season in houston
last year i celebrated it as a teacher, but
this year chunk, his friends weston and grayson,
and their mommies {all former teachers}
came up to school for the festivities!

after all the kiddos had left the gymnasium and 
headed off to their next stop, our
little boys got to crawl around and 
we snapped some cute pics.
cute, even though cade thought his
straw hat was much more interesting
than mommy's camera.

azalea trails

what better way to kick off spring than to walk through the azalea trails 
at bayou bend and gaze upon the beautiful details 
God created just for us in every flower.
we had such a fun time snapping pictures,
laughing at cade's curiosity, 
and enjoying time together as a family of 3.

{p.s. the azaleas weren't actually in bloom yet,
because we've had such a cold winter.
but we still got some great pics,
and loved the beautiful tulips,
camelias, dogwoods, and paper whites.
we're planning to go back again
when they're actually in bloom!}

playing at the park

each new season is my favorite because at that time it's exactly what I need.  
all seasons bring wonderful, beautiful changes 
the change of spring that we're so looking forward to is warmer air and sunshine!  
so far, every day that we've had sunshine, 
cade and i have packed up the stroller and headed to the park.  
 {when i said "packed up the stroller"...
i definitely meant i threw in some clorox wipes
to wipe down the swing and slides b/c he chews on everything}
He looooves those baby swings, and I loooove watching him giggle. 
looking forward to many more days like this... 


snow day!!

I wrote this post two weeks ago...and just uploaded the pics today...

Monday afternoon I was watching the weather forecast...we had a slight, i mean very slight, chance for 1/2 inch of "snowy slush" on Tuesday, but Mimi & Champ had an 80% chance for snow.  What's a mom to do who reeeaaallllllly wants pictures of her chunky 6 month old baby boy in the snow?  We packed up, kissed da-da goodbye, and headed to College Station for a snow day!  We had a blast!  Snow flakes like I've never seen in Texas...some were the size of quarters!  Cade was in awe of the snow falling quickly from the sky.  I think he just didn't know which one to grab and put in his mouth.  The front yard was a blanket of white.  Everything is more beautiful covered in snow :)   We ended up getting 2-3 inches of snow & got some precious pics, too.  We always love going to visit Mimi and Champ.  Can't wait 'til next time!

 precious mimi!
