3rd Grade Field Trip

May 21st, 2015

Apparently the new way to do the zoo with your child’s class is to load up your backpack with lunches and ipads. The newest and final big assignment in 3rd this year is creating a mini zoo and doing an ipad presentation.. The mini zoo will have to have it’s own blog post because ICANTEVEN right now.

A Ft. Worth Zoo selfie with my favorite 3rd grader!

Just a few of Ms. Henderson’s boys!

Ms. Henderson and the best 3rd grade class ever!

2015

I volunteered to be a chaperone but was only assigned my own child. Thanks Ms. Henderson! I expected to be holding at least three extra lunches and ipads so I brought Peyton’s big Under Armour backpack. I was kind of relieved I wouldn’t be loaded down with extra stuff. We hooked up with another mom and her two kids and the chaos was on! These kids were racing around the zoo with their ipads trying to get pictures of each of their animals. They were assigned 6 each, and of course no one had normal animals like elephant or hippo. It was crazy! Im sure the families who were there to actually enjoy the zoo thought it was ridiculous seeing our kids glued to their ipads. Don’t even get me started on how competitive these three boys are together. “I have 4 animals left! I have 2! Let’s get mine first! Lets go this way!” It was crazy, but hilarious!

These are not the animals that were on our list…. Peyton just wanted to take pictures with my phone of the animals he thought were cool.

Im not sure what the boys saw the monkeys doing but it was enough for them to stand still for a second and then laugh like crazy.

2015

We broke the rules and not only let the kids get a icee, but we also let them try out the tornado tunnel. Don’t tell the teacher!

Main Street Days, Grapevine

May 21st, 2015

A picture of Peyton’s was selected to be in the Art Show on Main Street during Main Street Days in Grapevine. Surprisingly Peyton rolled his eyes when we told him we wanted to go see it. He didn’t think it was a big deal, like AT ALL. The looks we got every time we brought it up were hilarious!

2015

The Wizard of Oz Exhibit was fun for everyone.

There’s no place like home!

Youre never too old for an old fashioned puppet show!

Legos, a touch tank, and a main street selfie.

Cool cars and cool rides!

2015

Peyton rode this one by himself the first time, then Jayden joined him. I love how Peyton helped Jayden get in his swing. By the end of the ride Jay had his head back and Jason and I feared for everyone below. Thank goodness the guacamole stayed down!

2015

Jayden wanted to ride “The Haunted Mansion” but only if Daddy would ride too.

2015

The boys were amazed when they saw this cowboy statue actually move. Jayden didn’t want any part of it. Nothing like freaking your kids out on a Sunday afternoon!

Mother’s Day!

May 10th, 2015

I woke up to the sweetest gifts this morning. Peyton and Jayden made a few things at school and Jason bought me flowers and a few gifts. We started the day with church, then went to my favorite Mother’s Day brunch at Rio Mambo. It was pouring all morning but we made the best of it. We ran into my hairdresser, who is also a really good friend, and her family at brunch. It was great for all of us to catch up. She has two boys about the same age as Peyton and Jayden.

I don’t know what was going on but for some reason Jason just couldn’t get a clear picture of us in the rain.

2015

Im so in love with all of these! Thank you boys!

2015

Love the dress, love the shoes, love the words, Love all of it!!!

2015

Super fun brunch, with friends and Jayden’s favorite…. a big plate of guac!

2015

And shout out to the best Mom ever! We took a ride to my parents house to set up my mom’s Mother’s Day gift. She was at the rehab facility all day with my dad. We also visited rehab to see them both. Happy Mother’s Day Mom! Thank you for taking care of all of us throughout the years. You are the best Bunny/Mom ever!!!

Jayden our runner!

May 8th, 2015

I could not be more proud of my boys…. first Peyton with his All Star status and today Jayden comes home with a medal! He came in 2nd in Running Club at OCT with 21.5 miles! We missed the last day of running so we had no idea. Great job Jayden!

“Mommy you know why running is good for you? Because when you run bad air goes out behind you and good air good air goes in. That’s what I think anyway.”
Jayden, 7 years

Jayden was cracking me up in the picture on the right. “Wait mommy, I gotta get ready”

Peyton the All Star!

May 8th, 2015

We got an email from one of the coaches from Colleyville Baseball. Peyton was one of 20 kids who were picked to be an All Star and try out for the summer select team. The try outs went well and we are waiting not so patiently for the list to be posted. Either way, like coach Jay said, all of the kids are All Stars and should be very proud of themselves, and we are!

The coach had All Star bag tags made for each player.
Good job Peyton!

Welcome to the family Shay!

April 11th, 2015

I really don’t know where it came from but I have been wanting a kitten. I had to put my cat down about 8 years ago and never really wanted another cat since then. Sasha was everything to me and I really never thought I would care to have another cat or kitten, but I was searching through craigslist (of all places) just to look at kittens and I saw a picture of this little one. I talked to Jason about it (he’s allergic) he was all for it.

After Peyton’s baseball game and before Jayden’s soccer game this little baby became a part of our family. She’s only 5 weeks old.

2015

We are in love! She is a hemingway, persian, seal tip siamese, mix.

Tonight we ate dinner on the patio and held her a lot. Jason is such animal person, allergies and all, they love him!

11 years!

April 10th, 2015

Jason took the boys to school and texted me when he got there telling me to check the mailbox for a surprise. I walked out and checked, but there wasn’t anything in it, he came up behind me and said HEY! Scared me so bad! He wanted to surprise me by taking the day off to do lunch and spending the day together. He definitely surprised me!

We went to the plant shed to get flowers for the yard, went to lunch at Esparzas, and visited Cross Timbers Winery, where we got married 11 years ago! It was just as pretty as it was the day we got married. I love it, and him!

We had a great day together!

Happy Easter!

April 5th, 2015

We went to the Saturday afternoon church service. Its crazy how crowded church is on Easter and Christmas, so we like to do the earliest service and not fight the crowd.

Peyton was in charge of taking pictures. Good job Peyton!

Happy Easter!

Happy day before Easter!

April 4th, 2015

When we got home from Peyton’s baseball game there was a note from the Easter Bunny…. The boys were excited, but for the first time Peyton had questions. (Did you and Daddy do this?…. How could we? I was with you all morning and Daddy is working.) The wheels are turning in his 9 year old head. Why do they grow up so fast? Thankfully there weren’t any more questions after that).

Rain was in the forecast for Easter Sunday but Saturday was beautiful. The Easter Bunny is so smart!

2015

After changing out of his baseball uniform, Peyton (and Jayden) were ready to search for eggs.

Easter eggs

April 3rd, 2015

I wasn’t great gearing up for Easter this year. With Dad being in the hospital, rehab, and then back in the hospital my mind has been cloudy. I somehow got eggs boiled and ready to color the day before Easter. The boys have been so good with dealing with me leaving at random times of the day, on the phone constantly, and updating them on how Poppy is doing. They were excited to color Easter eggs.
