Surfside Weekend

We made our annual fall trek to the gulf for some fishing and beaching with friends but we were pretty much pounded by rain and wind most of the time. I'm glad we made it to the beach at least for a little while. The kids were really good sports despite being stuck inside most of the time. I'm glad our friend Lizzy came, she was a big help keeping them entertained. Ally had a great time playing with her buddy Mason and we enjoyed a fun visit with his parents.

I love this picture of Adam fishing on the dock with his daddy as the storm was approaching.

One of the dry moments of our trip the kids loved playing on this platform swing.

Rodeo Cowboys

An old post I'm just now finishing from our rodeo day in Colorado over the summer. Adam rode the mechanical bull and Andrew & Ben competed in mutton bustin'.

Summer Wrap Up III

After Ally's ER trip earlier in the summer, I became one of those crazy moms that orders a helmet for her unsteady toddler. After busting her eye one day and then her forehead a day later I decided I didn't want to take any chances and give her poor little noggin some time to heal. The house we rented had lots of random furniture and obstacles to crash into.

As goofy as this things looks, it actually served its purpose pretty well and saved her during several other falls that she had. Thank you amazon.com for carrying the most random items!

"Can you believe my mother makes me wear this ridiculous looking thing?"

I was impressed with Andrew's creativity turning this coloring page into an LSU Tiger for his Peepaw

Ally has been getting her one year molars and it hasn't been too fun :-(

This is my view most of the day:

All the boys enjoyed getting to play ball in the yard without breaking a sweat this summer

I love how Logan is right in there with the big boys!

Summer Wrap Up II

The last time we were in Colorado my sweet nephew Ben had a bad bike wreck with a possible concussion so we decided to take it easy for several days to help him recover fully. So one day we took the kids to a pottery painting studio. They loved this activity, I need to remember this sometime for a rainy day.

Adam &
Andrew picked out sharks and ice cream dishes to paint. They were very focused on their work!

Me and my sweet Adam. Sure do love this boy!!

We also went to the free children's museum in the village and this was the first time Ally was big enough to join in the fun. She loves sitting at little tables and gets in and out of the tiny chair over and over.

Sweet Ben during his trip to the ER, he was so brave and tough while they dug the gravel out of his forehead. So glad he is okay!

Summer Wrap Up I

I have just a few posts left to get caught up on all our summer adventures.

Enjoying some cooler weather in these pics. I wish could get back to that cool dry air, this last week in Texas has been extreme!
