Hey there

We have been a busy little family over the last week and a half. Last weekend (pretty much last minute too) we decided to go visit our good friends Joey, Hailey and Molly in Arkansas... so we drove 5 hours one way to spend a quick weekend with them. Even though it was too short was enjoyed hanging out with them. It makes me realize how much I miss them here! It was so beautiful in Arkansas with it's rolling hills and trees everywhere. Makes rural Oklahoma look even worse. Molly and Grace had a blast hanging out and stealing toys from one another! Will they ever out grow that? Everything was "mine" or "my"... can't wait till that new baby gets here. I'm sure Grace will steak claim on all the babies toys!

This picture was taken near the Arkansas River on a beautiful day! Bikini girls!Hugging and feeding her baby in the car

Then on Monday of this week (after getting back Sunday afternoon) Grace and I got back in the car and headed to see my friend Katie and her little girl Paige in East Texas... a 4.5 hour drive. We hung out, got pictures taken of the girls by one of Katie's friends (I'll post when I get them), went shopping at the Woodlands Mall and ate some yummy food. It was a nice little trip despite the fact that Grace didn't sleep well. She was waking up a couple times a night... which is hard when you are pregnant and tired and use to having a toddler that sleeps at least 11 hours at night! We headed home on Thursday. I have to say that Grace has really gotten to be pretty good in the car. After all it is pretty hard for a toddler to be restrained in a car seat for hours on end. Amen for portable dvd players!!

Here is a cute picture of Paige(3 months) and Grace(18 months). Grace did pretty good with Paige... despite the fact that she nearly sat on her several times, kicked her (on accident), and nearly smothered her with hugs she will make a good big sister in March. (I HOPE!)

THAT'S NOT FAIR!!!! You were in MY hometown. The Woodlands is where I'm from and I would go back there in a heartbeat! I'm extremely jealous you were so close to my family! Did you run into the Guinn Triplets?? They live there too!

Sounds like you had a fun, but busy week! I guess you're feeling much better because if I were still sick, I don't think I could have taken all those long trips.

Looks like she is going to be a great big sis!!

Sounds like you had a great week! I don't think I could have spent that long in a car in one week!

Lisa said...

Ashley, Yes I'm feeling MUCH better. This week I only got sic 3 times and it wasn't bad and I felt better afterwards. So happy to be in my Second trimester!!

Lu, Yeah... it was a little too much car riding/driving. I think we are going to stay at home for a while!

Glad you had a great past week.

Grace is so big!

Maren is at Disney this weekend! I wish I was there to see them having fun as a family!

The bikini picture is soooo adorable!

Looks like you girls HAVE been busy!! All that talk about driving reminded me that a couple of nights ago I had a dream that you and Adam and Gracie came for a suprise visit. Y'all got here and were like, "What??? It only took 15 hours." Too funny!

Love the bikinis!

Sports for your kids is totally worth it. I am excited and I love going to their games. Especially days like today when Ty made FOUR goals. He was awesome! He did everything he was supposed to and it paid off.

what's your e-mail address, I will tell you how to cross out words but everytime I try to describe it on here, it thinks I'm trying to cross out a word and it wont let me put it in.
