We've had a fun filled few weeks.
Evan attended his 1st Houston Astros Game. Although he dressed for his true #1 team.A trip to Mass was the 1st time leaving the state of TX for Evan.
He did really well; we have no complaints.
He scared grandma to death when he showed her his Moser balancing trick.
We went and got pedicures before the wedding. He did fairly well, and I must say looked mighty cute, for his attendance at the wedding.
Check out what Mosers are famous for in Boston (Moser Cabinet Makers)

Evan is riding one of the ducks from "Make Way for Ducklings" a children's book that takes place in the Boston Commons.

There it is!

Just in case you were wondering, flip flops float... and the waves/currents going into the beach are stronger than those going out. And it takes approximately 1 bottle feeding for Kate for a flip flop to travel the from the FAR END of the pier up to the crashing waves, into the hands of the ONLY boogie boarder in the water that day.

And here is my mother's day picture.  As you can see, the kids did their best to cooperate and mind me that day!  :)

Here are some pictures of Scott & Shaliece's new abode in Texas. It's fixin' to be a good one.

Back of the house - look at the shade at 1:30 in the afternoon.

Kate's First Pool Time

She LOVED the water! We weren't really surprised, as she thinks the bath is too fun... especially when she gets to take a bath with the boys and everyone is splashing. She loved hanging out in her float and being entertained by Parker who kept swimming under her to play "peek-a-boo" and Ryan who kept giving her kisses and teaching her how to splash. When it gets warmer, we'll have to see if she likes Nema and Hepa's waterfall and Uncle Mike's slide. Hmmm... maybe too young, but I somewhat remember the boys doing it their first summer and they were much younger. We'll see if Daddy is a little more cautious with his little girl.

This little beach bum was fascinated with the water.  (surprise, surprise?) He thought it was so fun that the waves would crash over the rock.  He also thought it was hillarious that he could chase the waves and run around the rocks while the waves were out... but he had to be fast or else the waves would get him!  Parker and Ryan both had a blast running around the rock.  OK... it wasn't this rock, but one about 1/2 the size just out of the picture that they did it.

Ryan's favorite sayings since we have been home have been, "Go to the car wash" (since I said it 1000 times after we went to the beach 3 days and had a car FULL of sand), and "Ry Ry go to the beach."  We might just need to go back some time this summer.  He is actually a really fun kid to be around on the beach!  :)

New Blog

Finally!  I suppose I am really behind the time as everyone else is not "already doing it"... they have "already done it".  So, here I am... finally joining the blogging world.  I have got my new photography blog set up now.  I've only got a little bit on right now, but I'll work on more when we get back from CALI!  Just thought I would share... feel free to leave comments... I want people to think that I do actually have people that follow and track my blog... I need to feel important!  :)

Philly Phun

Our ward had an activity up in Philly last weekend.  It was supposed to be an "Amazing Race" with the single's ward up in Philly.  It turned into more of a day playing tourist and taking crazy pictures.  Philly kind of smells, but it was fun nonetheless!  There is this great plaza with huge game pieces that provided some entertainment for a while.

I thought I'd share some photos from my birthday.  My wonderful friends threw an amazing party for me.  It was cocktail dress, with mocktails, and even cocktail waitresses.  It was a combined party for one of my friends and I who share a birthday.  We socialized, ate lots of good food, and danced the night away!

They cleared out all of our furniture in the house and created the perfect atmosphere for a cocktail/dance party.
