Broken Bow, OK

We have talked forever about taking a family trip with our friends -- and we finally got it on the books. We wanted a little weekend away, something out-doorsy, and a chance to be active. We also wanted it to feel like 'glamping' -- not camping! Ha! We decided on a trip to Broken Bow, Oklahoma. It is only about a 3 hour drive from the DFW area. And it is amazing how much the landscape changes from the metroplex to the wooded area of Broken Bow.

Fourth of July Getaway- Horseshoe Bay

We have been "on the go" a lot this summer. Due to the way the 4th of July fell on the calendar this year, Jeff ended up with a nice long weekend. So we decided to do a little get away with the girls to Horseshoe Bay.

Nevis 2017

Jeff is such a hard worker. And this year- his hard work earned us a trip to Nevis! The company takes the top performers on a 'once in a lifetime' vacation each summer to celebrate their accomplishments. I had never heard of Nevis prior to his win. But now... I will never forget it.

Summer Fun June 2017

We are enjoying a relaxed summer. The girls are doing a few activities here and there, but mostly they just want to hang out at home.

Maisy is giving volleyball a try. You know how everyone does things around here-- early! So there is a bit of debate as to the "strength" of our littles. But they are learning so much about how to play the game and some of them are getting it over the net. 

 Our coaches- The Jacque & Tom Oley- are absolute saints. So patient and kind. 

 We are thinking this might actually be the perfect age to start playing.

For Father's Day, we hosted a little 'get together' with the Ashmores to celebrate Jeff and Slade. 

Jeff finally cracked open that huge bottle of wine that he got for Christmas. It was quite comical.

On Sunday, we went to Grandpa's for a cook-out and swimming. Charles and his family came too. Lots of cousin fun.

We came home and treated Jeff to the most amazing Father's Day dinner-- frozen pizza! Lol.

Last week we made our first trip of the summer to Dove Pool. The girls loved the slides and diving board. And they talked me into playing along too.

I kind of feel like I am 37 going on 13. 

Afton's big summer activity is swimming with the Timarron Tigersharks again. She has really been enjoying it. Jeff gets a bit competitive-- do you like his DIY diving block? 

My summer baby napping. (I know she isn't a baby-baby anymore... but how cute is that little face?) 

And here is me. 

We had some friends over for dinner and swimming. The girls are all at a great age for this kind of party.

I LOVE this face! (And this girl)

In our attempt to get our girls ready for Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. We took them on another hiking adventure. They walked 3.1 miles (with a little bit of grumbling of course). But overall they had fun!

White Rock Lake has some pretty scenery and these 'old school' swings that the girls loved.

We finished the day with toes in the water and lunch at The Great Outdoors in Dallas.

Happy Summer Girls.

The End of an Era

After 6 years at HES, Afton graduated from elementary school. She is super excited for her new school and her new adventure.

To end the school year, there was a 'clap out' ceremony where all the kids & teachers came into the halls as the 5th graders walked through.

That was followed by a 'Success Ceremony', slideshow and then 5th Grade Fun Day.

Maisy wrapped up 1st Grade and is excited about being in 2nd grade next year.

She had her own Success Ceremony too!

Plus a fun picnic lunch from the "In & Out Burger Truck". 

I am going to miss having both my girls at the same school!!! 
Both girls have grown and changed alot this year. Here is a comparison of their 1st day of school pics, with the last day of school pics. The year went by slow and fast. I don't want time to go by quickly, but I am honestly happy we are done with this year.

After school on the very last day, I attacked the girls with silly spray. Then we went to a friends' house to swim with a bunch of the 5th grade graduates.

Summer here we come!
