Scott…the huntsman

 The boys went on an overnight hunting trip and Scott came home with this...
ummm gross!  It is in our freezer all packaged up and not so hairy.

Mae's First Zoo Trip

 My three "animals" at the zoo!
 I put Cooper in charge of the map.  He loved navigating through the zoo!

 Mae's first carousel ride!

 He has always loved goats!
and……they're out.  Scott could not join us because he was running the TIR but we sure made the most of a gorgeous day!

A Quick Trip…Nana's Art Studio

 We planned a quick visit to see Nana and Papa.  Mae was ready to go in her favorite "beachy" outfit!
 Our first stop was the soccer fields but after the kiddos games, we hit the road.

Papa has been working hard helping Nana get her studio set up.  
 The kids were happy to help "break it in".  They have lots of projects planned for future visits.

 Nana gave them a lesson in screen printing.  They can't wait to try out their own designs this summer!

Not the first time...

things didn't go as planned!

Our camping trip was rained out….

 Brazos Bend State Park
but we did hike around in the rain for awhile.

Rainout Plans: Backyard Crawfish Boil and S'mores on the grill!

Spring Break 2014 Part II

We are trying to do 40 bags in 40 days for Lent and we found quite a few "new" toys for Mae when we were cleaning out.
 Charlotte taught Mae how to color.
 Ta da…..
 the girl's masterpiece!
 Charlotte attended art class.

While Charlotte was at art class, Cooper and Mae were playing at the park.

It rained quite a bit throughout the week but every time the sun peeked out, we were outside!

Mimi took the kids the movies while Mae and I joined Daddy for lunch.

Charlotte finally decided to ride her bike again.  She is a pro!
One of Charlotte's favorite parts of Spring Break was picking out her own clothes each day…and playing dress up with her little sister!

Spring Break 2014 - Part I

We spent the first weekend in Galveston trying to catch crabs, fish,……something.
 No luck with the crab trap!
 Charlotte thought the perfect outfit for catching fish would have to be a tutu!
 Mae didn't seem to mind the cooler temps and fell asleep to the sounds of the sea.

 We always have a great time when we get to spend time with Ephraim!
 Finally, a fish!  Both Scott and Erwin caught a flounder.  WE fried them up the next night and they were delicious.
 The next stop was SeaWolf Park.  I tried to entertain the kids while the others fish but it was COLD!

We finally decided to call it quits and headed back for a dip in the hot tub!
