Summer Fun with Candice

Back in the spring Candice & I put our summer visits on our calendar. In June we went to her house. Andy was traveling with work, so we went for a week long visit to do Vacation Bible Camp at their church. The kids had a great time & Candice & I had fun volunteering in arts & crafts. The kids really did a great job getting along, especially considering we were there Sunday-Saturday. Candice & I did some evening shopping, eating out & relaxing in the hot tub :) 
Last week Candice & her girls came to our house for a visit. It was another super fun visit. Andy even offered to put all 5 to bed one evening, so we could have a girls night out at Paint Your Art Out.

--June Visit--

--July Visit--


'CAJE' Fun :)

Carrie, Julie & Elizabeth drove over to Fredericksburg, Friday - Sunday while we were there. We had some awesome girl time. On Friday night my Mom made us dinner & we enjoyed talking on the patio until late, then we did lots more talking in the cabin :) On Saturday we went downtown to shop & celebrate Julie's baby by eating lunch at the Peach Tree. It was a fun reunion! 

Happy Fourth of July!

We had a great fourth of July! Except that Andy wasn't with us :( We started the morning going to the Fredericksburg Parade - so fun! George drove his truck downtown the day before & parked it on main street, so we had an awesome watch spot! We stopped to see Fred, the "cow" that lives near Mom & George's house & is constantly changing outfits, depending on the holiday or season :) The kids loved him. Uncle Steven came over later in the day to visit, grill burgers & drive over to Luckenbach with us for the "tractor parade." :) 

Kate is 4! July 2, 2013

Kate had her 4th birthday while we were in Texas. We had a fun Hello Kitty family party. Dad & Suzanne drove over & we enjoyed lunch & strawberry cupcakes. Kate loved opening her presents & got lots of fun Hello Kitty & princess goodies (her favorites right now :). We loved celebrating our big 4 year old! 

Texas Adventures

Andy was gone for 3 weeks in late June/July, working in Puerto Rico. One of the weeks he was gone, we went to Mom & George's house.
 Lots of fun playing in the dirt & gravel :)
 Talking to Daddy on the phone - they look so grown up!

 David wasn't sure about Mom & George's dogs at first. But after a few days, he warmed up to them &  even seemed to like them. He would walk up to Whiskers, pat him on the head & say, "Dog! Dog!"
 I had this thought of getting a really good pic of the kids together - after about 20plus pics, I still didn't have a great one. Oh well :) There are some funny ones & they all make me smile. 

 This is David's, "I'm seeing the dogs come near me & I'm nervous" look :) 

 Fun with masks Aunt Fran brought the kids :)
David LOVES popcicles! 

 Aunt Fran drove over from Austin to spend some time with us! 
 Funny David :)
