First Day of Summer

Since I really wanted to do two blog post a week, a new one and a catch up one, I figured it was time to do an up to date one.  We are on summer vacation right now and we had a GREAT first day of summer.  We went to the Lake here with some of our friends and had a great time.  Tyler's best friend leaves for the summer every single year so this was our last chance to hang out with him.

I'm pretty sure they were taking politics in this picture...

Ethan got buried 

Kayla's favorite thing to do is be on this inner tube 

Emily and Lauren were up in the shade 

She smiled as soon as she saw the camera.  

I love where I live

And Tyler and his best buddy Ben saying good bye.  

It was a great day and the fun didn't stop there.  We went home and had baths, lunch and rested a little while.  Then we went to the church for a dinner and bake auction.  The kids had tons of fun doing that as well and we got to take home some yummy treats.  Good first day of summer!

Texas Part 3

Our next adventure in Texas was with my great friend Sarah!  She lived with us in Gatesville and after we moved they ended up moving to the San Antonio area so we got to spend some time with them when visiting Kade.  We got to eat lunch with them, which was our tradition when we got together all the times before.  It was so cute because Kayla and Colin hugged and then held hands.  They were still pretty little when we moved so I thought it was so funny that they just instantly hugged and were acting like best buddies.  We got to see their new house and then we went to go feed some ducks.

I love this one of Kayla and Colin...

After this we decided to go get some ice cream before we headed out.

It was great fun and we can't wait to see them again some day!!!

After this we started to head back to Cali.  On the way back we stopped at the Carlsbad Caverns.  I have been dying to go here for years so it was nice to finally do so.

Here are a couple of pictures from the car ride home.

This is a picture of Mexico.  We waved hi to Aunt Kimmie, Uncle Ender and Jacob!!!  :)  Then there were tons of awesome skies and you know me...I LOVE a pretty sky

And next we have the Thing?  My best friend Myra talked me into going to the thing when here and I made this drive right after I got married.'s something...

Hanging out at the hotel

And finally...those GORGEOUS California mountains....they are there I promise, but you can't see them through the smog.  :)

And then we made it home and we were exhausted!!!  It was a great trip and we made lots of great memories.
