Weekend Fun

This past weekend was lots of fun. We spent alot of fun family time together. We are gearing up for our vacation, so Saturday was spent out and about. We did a little shopping, picking up last minute stuff, ate lunch then stopped by this fun indoor Safari park in Southlake that I found through a friends blog! It was pretty cool, there was different activities kids could do. Lane had a blast and it was great to be indoors and still have fun!

Lanes loves to jump and bounce, so this cool little trampoline was right up his alley! We definitely need one of these at home!!

His first time in a real ball pit. A little hesitant at first, probably b/c there were so many balls, but he warmed up quick!

Then they had a train ride! Lane rode once with mommy, then with daddy!

Then they had mechanical animals! They were hilarious. Lane was a bit scared, but once it started he just sat there and looked.

And this is him climbing the stairs to the slide BY HIMSELF!!! My boy is getting too big!!

On Sunday we headed out to a community pool for the afternoon. This is where Lane had swim lessons but we went to the outdoor pool. The water was cold but he enjoyed himself! I didn't get that many pics b/c we were both in the water most of the time!

We are leaving tomorrow for our vacation! We are flying to North Carolina, to my mom's, then we will head down to Myrtle Beach for a few days then back up to D.C. for a couple of days!! I'm so excited but nervous about the plane ride! I'm sure it will be a very different experience than last time when he was a mere four months old and didn't talk, didn't cry much, and couldn't move!!! So we'll see how it goes! We will be gone until the Aug. 2nd!!! So see ya soon!

4 Amazing Years!!

(I love this pic b/c Lane is clearly trying to get in on this picture!!))

Today Paul and I are celebrating 4 wonderful (fast) years of marriage! Everyday I am thankful to be married to my best friend and I love the life that we have built for our family!

Tonight we headed to downtown Ft. Worth for some yummy dinner and then went to see the new Harry Potter, which was awesome!!

I love you Paul and I am so lucky to be your wife!! Happy 4th Anniversary!!

Fun Little Craft!

So I saw this fun little idea on a blog and thought....hey I want to do that! I made these super cute and super easy clips while watching TV one night and thought I would share! All you need are the black clips (I bought some of the big ones and then some of the medium size), Mod Podge, and scrapbook paper! Cut the paper into rectangles to fit and then glue them on!

I put them in a glass jar and there you go! Being a teacher I use these all the time so why not make them fun! I think they would look cute and trendy on any desk, teacher or not!

Bubbles of Fun!

Tonight we gave Lane his first bubble bath! He was so fascinated by the bubbles that he didn't even touch any of his bath toys!! I think we will have to make this a weekly treat!!

Catching up!!

I'm finally back home! I didn't plan on being gone a whole week, but during summer, who needs plans right!! Monday on our way home we stopped by Waco. Lane was getting very restless in the car and he needed a break! After some convincing, I ended up staying a couple of days down there.

Today while Lane was napping...yes napping!...I caught up on posts from the weekend!! Enjoy!

This pic sums up how much fun Lane had last weekend, completely worn out!


Sunday was relaxing day. All were tired, including my baby, so we hung out indoors for most of the day. Later we ventured outside were Lane had his "first float"!! It was pretty funny! After swimming we enjoyed some yummy hamburgers!

Tired boy...Paul didn't tell me my hair was crazy!

4th of July!

On Saturday Paul, Lane and I, as well as Paul's mom and stepdad, all headed down to Corpus to spend the 4th with Holly, Charlie, and some of his family. It was a fun day. We swam, drank, ate, and laid in the sun! Lane loved the pool and had fun playing with his cousin Coen! Here are some pics from the day!

Beach Fun

On Friday, Paul and I took Lane down to Rockport Beach to hang out! We had some fun family time on the beach! I was excited to see how Lane would do. Turns out he likes it! He let us take him out in the ocean and he played in the sand. All in all it was a wonderful afternoon!
