14 Years Later....

5 of us and 10 of them! We've doubled ourselves!
How times have changed for the girls from the class of '98!

This week I spent a few short hours with some of my favorite people in the world. Steph drove in from Illinois, and it was a perfect excuse to get the girls together. Love you, Megan, Juli, Amie, and Steph!!!

Well...THAT was easy!

A couple of years ago, Willie's cousin gave me the BEST potty training advice. Simply, "Wait until they are ready!"  So...a couple of weeks ago, after sensing for several weeks that Anna was "ready" we threw the diapers away and put on our panties (which pretty much was the "training")! Potty training - COMPLETE!

 LOVE that tiny Belle bottom! We've been pretty much accident free, and potty training Anna was 1,000,000,000,000,000 times easier than Nate. What a big girl!

On 2 Wheels!

Nate's riding w/no training wheels! Yay, Nate!

Quite possibly our biggest accomplishment during Spring Break!

The kids stayed up way later than normal last night, but every once in a while it's nice to let loose and allow the kids time to break the routine.
This morning, we headed to the park to enjoy the nice weather.

...and Aaron and Blake are already on their way home. It was a short but sweet visit. The kids are heartbroken!

Driving Range

Nate has been counting down the days until his cousins, Aaron and Blake got here. Today was finally the day! We ate at the Vernon's Beer Garden, rode bikes outside, played the wii, went to the driving range, and went out to dinner together. A full day with some of our favorite boys! 

At the driving range.

Dinner with Aaron and Blake!
It's Thursday...that means only a couple more days and Spring Break is over. Summer is right around the corner!

Houston Children's Museum

Spring Break is in full swing around here. Yesterday morning we woke up and left in time to be at the Children's Museum in Houston when it opened. We'd never been before, and the kids had a blast. They begged not to leave! Here are a few pics from our fun day with the Hestons at the Museum.

Happy Spring Break!
