Summer Fun

We have had the best summer! Many times, we caught ourselves going through our second the Slip and Slide! Holton loved it!

Run Nanny, Run!

Yes...mommy had fun, too!

Jumpin' Jungle is GREAT!
Holton and Hunter
This is their second play-date. They were so tired and ready to come home at the end! I loved getting to visit with you Ginger! Hunter is a doll!

We got to play golf at Runaway Bay. Holton does a great job and can smack the ball farther than I can! Kyle really like to rub that in! Kyle is a pretty good coach, too! Holton had so much fun playing and driving the cart!

Like father ~ like son!

I love to play golf with Dad!

My favorite part of golf...the water jug!
I love my Nanny and Papa!

Big Boy Room

It is really hard to believe Holton is big enough to be sleeping in his big boy room. The first night was heartbreaking as he climbed into this huge bed with his little body! He is growing up way too fast!

It took Kyle and I two days to get it finished, but we thought it turned out pretty cute! Holton is very proud of it, too!

He loves his new "wed wockers" ~ so much he climbed in a went pee-pee and poo! SICK!!!

Basketball (Kyle painted it!)

Baseball, bat, and base (I painted it!)

Football and Boxing Gloves (Kyle painted them!)

Soccer Ball (I painted it!)

Golf - his favorite sport (I painted it!)

Dallas Trip

Kyle had a coaches clinic in Arlington and I decided to go with him. We had a great time and Kyle spoiled me! We played, ate, and shopped the whole trip! He even took me to Sambuca, which I highly recommend for a romantic evening with your honey!
Kyle and I at our favorite Ft. Worth spot~Joe T. Garcia's! We never miss a chance to dine and sip the margarita's! MMMMmmmm!
Joey, Heather, Hollie, and Kyle at the Ranger game....HOT - literally! We had a blast!

I need to go potty!

This is all we have heard for the last week! He is doing really well, but doesn't want to poo-poo in the potty! Any suggestions moms?

He is too cute in his big boy underwears! We bribed our child with m&m's - obviously his favorite!

Swim Lessons

Holton had the opportunity to take private swimming lessons this year at my dear friend Stacy's pool. It is truly amazing to watch him in the water! Mrs. Amy was WONDERFUL! He is now able to go underwater, holding his breath, and swim about 6 feet!

4th of July

The Fourth of July was a fun day for all of us! We started off in Abernathy at the parade - or "Farade" as Holton called it. It lasted about 15 minutes max - but it was fun! Holton and Carter caught lots of candy and we got to see the family! Holton loves his Great-Great-Grandma! He calls her "Triple G"!

Next, we went to my Uncle Johnny's house for a good old fashioned fish fry! It was great! Holton played baseball with his Nanny and Papa!

That evening we had our 2nd annual Fireworks show with the Madrid's! I think the fireworks show at Frenship malfunctioned because it was way shorter than last year! It was very close up and "too loud" (from Holton)! We closed the night with some sparklers in the Madrid's front yard. What an eventful day!
