Swim Day

We got Camden a little pool last weekend. We got in it Saturday. He wasn't sure about it until Kaitlyn and I both got in with him. Aaron got our water guns out and he liked them. He wanted to mostly push his lawn mower around the yard. But then realized Mommy and sister weren't getting out so he would get in and stay in! Kaitlyn and I got some sun!!!!! I should have a good tan going on before too long! Four more days of school and 2 work days after that and then it's SUMMER TIME!!!!!!
On a sad note, 4 more days until I have a junior high schooler! Kaitlyn will be graduating from 6th grade Wednesday June 3rd. She is excited to be going to a new school. She got a pretty purple dress for graduation. Get this.....Aaron picked it out for her while she was looking at other dresses. I can't believe it! She looks so grown up......pictures to come after Wednesday.
Enjoying the summer sun!

Playing with Kaitlyn

Not sure if I like this Mom!


I'll just watch and play from here


I'll get in with Mom.





Date Night


These are few and far between because we get so much entertainment from our kids!
But a date is what we have needed!!!!

We went to a Ranger game where they had a pregame concert with Casting Crowns....if you are not familiar with Casting Crowns, scroll down to the music and listen. They are a christian band and we LOVE them!

Josh Hamilton came out and spoke. I am second was a sponsor. Check out the website
Iamsecond.com
If you are not familiar with Josh's story. He was drafted right out of high school and ended up getting into drugs and alcohol real bad. He turned his life around, thanks to God. Read his book. It is a good book!

Watching the Rangers win!!!!
14-1

The life of a rookie.....

We had a great time! It was not too hot.....even though there were 45,000+ at the game. It was a nice night for baseball!!!!!

Our New Patio............and 1 dead mole :)

I finished the pergola for the most part. There are a few minor thingsI need to do to it. It turned out really good. Amy was excited to get some plants and new pots for the patio and some to hang from the pergola. We also updated our flowerbeds in the backyard. When I was mowing the other day, I discovered that my stupid moles had returned. There were tunnels under the trampoline. The next day the mole had moved even further towards the patio. I went today to Lowe's to get something to keep the mole away. The man there told me a way to KILL em. If you walk and cave in the tunnels and then stab the tunnels with a pitchfork, you will eventually hit them and kill them. I caved in the tunnels and was going to continue when i saw the ground move up. I wasnt sure at first, so I kept watching. Oh yeah, it was the mole. I ferociously drove my shovel into that spot about 5 times. I dug down a little and saw what I had done. I killed the little you know what. It felt good. I like animals, but this one needed to die. He is gone. Don't feel bad. This is Aaron posting by the way.

Levitt Pavilion


Kaitlyn's school choir performed this Saturday at Arlington's Levitt Pavilion. It is an outside performance stage. It was very cool! She sang one of her Music Man solos and then sang with the choir. She did an AWESOME job!

Watching sister on stage

She loved this song and the motions!

It was a nice day but hot! Camden loved the water...


This was as close as he got.....not sister! After the concert, she went running through it! She was soaking wet! I wish I had gotten a picture.

This was a neat place to go and hang out. They will be having concerts this summer. Bring a blanket or chairs if you go....check out their website

This is fun!!!!

What?

Hello Camden!

New Windows


We got new windows put in Friday. That was the one thing we did not do when we moved in 4 years ago! They are energy star windows and we LOVE them! They look so good! My favorite is the dining room window. It is a slider window and you can see so much in the backyard! Camden loves looking out it.
