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!

splash party

Cade's little friend Gray hosted a Splash Party last month!
We all had so much fun!
Gray's mommy, April, set up lots of fun splashing activities for the babies!
There were baby pools full of toys, sprinklers, slides, and waterfalls.
The Splash Party was such a cute idea!
Cade would have stayed all day if we'd let him :) 

Cade & his buddy Weston

This next stunt was all Josh's idea...
and the boys thought it was so fun!

see you guys later

first splash!

The fam went to the pool for the 1st time a few weeks ago!
Cade LOVES the water!
He was the happiest baby at the pool!

he was squealing with joy!

loving the water!
splish, splash

We're going to have a blast at the pool this summer!

happy mother's day

My 1st Mother's Day was so special!
We spent the weekend in College Station with the fam.
It was the first time we'd all been together 
since Margaret returned home from Argentina!
We had a blast just spending time together.
God has truly blessed me with an amazing husband
and a truly precious son.
I love them both so much more than I can express!

Margaret and I are so thankful for our incredible mom,
who sets such an amazing example every day of how
to serve the Lord and her family in her role as mom.
Thanks, mom, for all that you do for our family!  
We are all SO thankful for you!


This spring we had a family of birds build their nest on our front porch.
While there was quite an excess amount of bird poop,
we loved watching them grow up!
We even got to witness their learning how to fly out of the nest!
Cade especially enjoyed it!

the bird fam

mommy bird teaching them how to fly

At dusk all the birds would fly and dart around the yard...
It was if mommy bird said "go get out all of your energy before bedtime!"
Cade loved to sit outside with his daddy and watch those silly birds!
