We're Still Here

It's been quite a while since my last post.  The beginning of April to be exact...Time has been slipping away as we have a ton of fun as a family.  Our weekends have been full of mini-trips, visits with family and just general fun around the house.  Now that it's officially summer in Houston, we've been busy trying to get in some swimming and sprinkler fun too :)

In April we took a family trip to San Antonio.  We spent two days at Sea World with the girls and we all had such a great time!  Maddie's big enough for the kiddie rides now and Sadie enjoyed seeing Elmo and the whole Sesame Street gang.  Both girls got to feed and touch dolphins, which may have been a bigger deal to me than to was really cool :)

In May we took a day trip to College Station to visit with Eric's sister and her family for the afternoon.  While we were there we took Sadie to her first play!  It also happened to be the first play that cousin Amy was in!!  We all had a really good time seeing Dr. Dolittle and Maddie even started saying good morning to Murphy by barking and shaking her left leg.  Super cute!

Last weekend we took a little adventure to take the girls camping for the first time.  They both really seemed to enjoy it but we all missed the air conditioning!  Even poor Murphy was panting pretty much the whole time we were there.  We had some highs and lows of the trip but we look forward to doing it again when the weather gets MUCH cooler!

In a few days Maddie's having her 4th birthday party!!  We're getting the final preparations done over the next couple of days and look forward to seeing Maddie enjoying time with her friends.

Over the next week I'll be sure to post pictures of all we've been up to over the past couple of months!!
