Slowly, but Surely

Over the last 5 weeks, we have transformed out backyard into an outdoor living space. We have slowly, but surely made progress and we are finally beginning to see the end. I can't wait to empty our garage that has been storing all the outdoor furniture. It should be completely finished early next week. So excited!!! (Before, during and after pics)

Happy Birthday Erik!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful husband Erik. He turns 29 today. He is enjoying his birthday at work, but don't be fooled. He went to breakfast with Simmons, lunch with co-workers, Nolan, and myself, and then on to dinner tonight at his Mom and Dads. We are having a little family get-together Saturday for cake and ice cream. He will also celebrate on Friday when he takes off work to play golf with some friends. You see, Erik celebrates his birthday for at least week!

Nolans 1st Trip to the Zoo

Nolan went to the Dallas Zoo yesterday with his Aunt Lori and Courtney. He loved the farm animals and playing on the playground. He also loved the many things that his Aunt Lori bought for him including his rubber snake, stuffed monkey, shirts, and an animal book. Thank you ladies for taking him! If he is anything like his mommy, he didn't like the smell of the zoo. Who knows...we won't know the answer to that for another year or so.

Waco Childrens Museum

Nolan had so much fun with his cousins, Molly and Ally, today. We met them in Waco at the Childrens Museum. It is the neatest place. Nolan loved watching the trains. His favorite part was probably the cars. He loves being at the wheel...makes him feel in control! Here are some pics from today.
You are looking at a possible future firefighter, school bus driver, pianoist, recording artist, ranch handler, or cardiologist, but for sure a future Indian!!

Our 1st Family Vacation -Days 7 and 8

Day 7-Thursday-July 23rd

Thursday morning, Erik and I went to the the Fun Park again. We rode the alpine slide several more time, which was super fun. Then we played another round of putt-putt. He definately won!

We went back to the house and picked up Nolan and mom and went shopping and ate lunch overlooking the mountains. Then we went back to the house, packed, and then went and did even more shopping.

Day 8-Friday-July 24th

We left Breckenridge at 4:00am. We arrived home about 7:30pm. It was so good to be home, although we miss the cool temperatures. We left Colorado and it was 41 degrees and when we drove into Texas, it was a hot 103 degrees. Nolan did great on the way home. He started screaming when we entered Waxahachie and at that point we didn't care.
