Houston Trip

We have several couple friends that live in Houston so we decided it was time to make a weekend trip to hang out.

Paul (one of Kory's college buddies) and Katie (one of my college buddies) have 2 sweet boys so we stayed with them.

Joe and Jaylie had their first date.  Jaylie still had sleepy eyes, but Joe didn't care....

they held hands.  

 klp found Will's spider man gloves and LOVED them.  We have masks and stuff, but they aren't his thing since he wears glasses.  We discovered that gloves ARE his thing! He liked to point his finger and look at it.  

Paul and Katie's neighborhood has a park and splash pad so we spent Saturday morning there.  Here are the 3 cute boys laughing and having fun.  Quinn thought Will's name was "Wheel" so that is what we all call him now!    

This is the best we got. Sweet Sweet Sweet.

 Jaylie giving Joe a little kiss. 

We went to the Astros/Rangers game Saturday night.  It was a lot of fun....not sure how much of the game we saw, but it was fun. 
Kasey and Nathan were with us all weekend and it was so fun.  We love them and they were so generous with their kidless arms and pretty much had a kid with them all weekend.  

 We bought cheap seats and no one was above us so we had free reign of seats.  

klp and the girl klp.  These two have a pretty special relationship.  We "lived" with her during the year and a half we drove back and forth to Dallas every week.  Spending every Tuesday night with her meant she shared in so much of our lives.  That was a really hard time but she TOTALLY saved me in so many ways.  She "gets" klp (and so many of my feelings as his mommy) like no one else. 

 I couldn't get a NOT blurry pic of klp.  Shocker.  

Q spotted some cotton candy and said he wanted some of that "soft stuff" he thoroughly enjoyed it.

sweet boys.

Me not sharing my fat boy with j.

Our friends Kyla and Alan live in Houston too so we got to see them too!  Alan has a crazy work schedule so we were THRILLED that it worked out that he was off that night.  Kyla and I have had all 3 of our babies within months of each other and this was the first time they've all been together. So fun!

Kyla (Preston), Kasey (Jaylie),  Me, Katie (Joe)

This is our crew.  Wonder how much the people around us hated us????

Gotta have a bath after a dirty baseball game..... 

Sunday was Mother's Day so sweet Kasey had us over to their house after church so no mothers had to cook (and none of us had to fight restaurant crowds) and it was fun.  She was worried she wouldn't have anything for the boys to do.  But she had capes and thats all they needed!!!  

Super WHEEL and Super Quinn! 

 klp and klp playing a duet

Kasey got bumped off her own piano!  

 We really wanted one more picture of the boys before we left, but Wheel was busy doing.....other things and my boys were distracted.  Oh well.  

A long, full, busy, fun weekend puts 3 kids OUT like lights on the way home.  

Thanks Masons, Popes, and Muns for a GREAT weekend!!!

April blog explosion: 

Still loving the new swing! 

Fireman taking a break

Here is a daily problem/cuteness at my house.  Kanyon paints and then when he's done he has it all over his hands and these little foot  hand prints end up all over my floor.  

Another daily problem/cuteness 

backwards undies (I think he likes to be able to see the picture better in the front)

and too tight undies.  He just can't quit these, not matter how tight they get or how much they accentuate his love handles.  

This was the first time Jaylie pulled up.  Of course it was to get a sword.  She did that a while back and then didn't do it again for about a month.  Now she's  a pro.  

Kanyons jeans:  We are down to one pair that doesn't have a giant hole in the rear.  Glad summer is here!  

I NEEDED a Chick-fil-a did Q. 

We REALLY miss klp on his 3 school days, but its been some good times with these 2. Quinn is a real trooper on these days because we often end up running lots of errands and cleaning/working at the house.  He tags along great and is actually getting to be legitimate help.  

Sometimes I kinda forget I have a daughter....most of the time a baby is just a baby.  Until I look at this picture and it hits me.  I'm holding my DAUGHTER!!  

She usually chills in the stroller while we sidewalk chalk

Smoothie mustache all the way to his forehead.  

klp loves his new swing, but old habits die hard.  He hasn't forgotten his first love.  

There just isn't room for groceries with my crew!  But sometimes we just gotta go and cram as much as we can wherever we can.

Licking pollen??? Probably good for allergies, right?

This was the night she showed me she never wanted baby food again. I handed her a few pieces of scrambled egg and she grabbed it, put it right in her mouth and gobbled it all up!  YAY! 

cornbread mustache. 

Endless fun in the sandbox.  

klp got some new paints for his birthday and had a blast trying out all the cool new brushes.  

This is what happens when she eats avocado.  

This is what happens when Q finds a Michael Jordan Sports Illustrated.  

Kory went to LA with his college buddies for their baseball trip, so me and the boys headed to Paris.  We hadn't been in a long time so it was extra fun.  

klp caught this fish all by himself.  He almost lost the rod and reel, but he held on! 

My 3 little rugrats

This is borderline DISGUSTING but klp loves to hug Buddy.  

Gay Gay and Jaylie June after church

Q got to stay in Paris an extra day while Mom helped me take klp on a little adventure to Waco (more on that later).  Paw Paw and Quinn caught this turtle and Q held on to it in the car.  

Our last Ladies Bible Class Beau and Jaylie were facing off.  

I'll end with a deceptively peaceful picture of 2 brothers reading together!
