Where have we been?

Well... Adam had to travel for a few days so I went down to the Big-D to hang out with some friends and family. We stayed for Memorial Day weekend. Then nearly 2 weeks ago my mom had back surgery. Grace and I stayed for a week to help my mom out since my dad was busy with work and because she loves our company :) My mom is now doing GREAT and feeling pretty good. She still has a long road ahead to full recovery, but is already having relief.
Here are a few pics of our time in Dallas.

Grace LOVES corn-on-the-cob!

She also liked to play in the dog's cage... silly girl.

Grace also enjoyed her make-shift tent.

And enjoyed swimming!

Also, while we were in Dallas I went to see the play Camelot with my friend Tiffany. It was fun to go to the play and get out with girls, but the play was just okay. Also over Memorial Day weekend, Adam and I hung out with some friends that I went to high school with and celebrated a friends engagement! We can't wait for the big day Brian.

Then this entire past week Gracie had swim lessons at the local college. She LOVED every minute of it. We also learned she is pretty fearless when it comes to water. Maybe she will be my little swimmer!

Grace excited to go swimming!
Mommy and Grace swimming!

And in the mess of a busy few weeks, Adam and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. Since our anniversary fell during the week, we celebrated last night. We went down to Dallas and stayed at the Westin hotel in Frisco and ate dinner at The Silver Fox just down the road. It was great to have a nice grown-up evening. :)

OH and I almost forgot... one of my best friends, Katie, and her husband, Andy, welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Paige Elizabeth, into this world on Tuesday, June 5th. She weighted 8 lbs 4 ozs and was 20 inches long. Here is a picture that Katie sent. I can't wait to get my hands on her! (ignore the date on the photo... it's wrong)

I've also been busy with a few other things... including, but not limited to, doing 100 loads of laundry, helping my church prepare for Vacation Bible School (which starts tomorrow), chasing a nearly 16 month old cutie pie, grocery shopping a few times, more laundry, going to the lake with friends, found out our friends, Joey, Hailey and Molly are moving away (we are super bummed!!), making a myspace page (i know... dumb, but a couple of my friends convinced me!), and getting a job! Yup... you heard that last one right, I got a job. You are looking at the newest part-time teacher for The Sunshine School. It is basically a mothers-day-out program. I will be working on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30-3 and the best part is I get to bring Grace! I can't wait. I'll keep you guys updated when I start.

That's all for now folks. The girls say have a great day!

Grace (15 months), Molly (20 months) & Sophie (15 months)
