18 years today





Gary surprised me with lunch at work, flowers and a ring pop. 
He's a great husband and I love him so much!!







After work we got the kiddos settled and went out for dinner and a few cold beers.

It was a fun way to celebrate 18 years!

Cheer camp is in full swing










Cheer camp started Monday and ended today.  It was so fun to see Layla come home each night more excited than the day before.  I feel confident she found her 'thing.'  She loves to tumble and she enjoys being loud and smiling.  She's doing what she loves!!  


My heart literally broke when she tried out for All American cheerleader, but didn't make it.  I feel like she had a questionable attitude about it from the beginning, but we pushed her to do her best.  Her 4 closest buddies on the cheer team all made it, but she didn't.  I hate she didn't make it, but I also know as parents we have to help our kids deal with dissapointment.  During camp they had a tryout the last day.  She felt like she bombed the tryout.  As her parents we were there to comfort her, but dang it it was so hard to see her sad.  

I think just to get nominated was a huge thing!  I'm super proud of my 8th grade cheerleader! I think her first cheer camp was a huge success.  She's sore and tired, but happy!!

He is 10!


I can't believe this little man is 10 today.  Y'all, he really is a little man.  He's kind and polite and constantly puts others before himself.


He's obsessed with golf and golf attire.  He even purchased his own set of Oakley sunglasses with his own money. 



He loves Shark week and so he requested his Netsie, make him a shark cake.



The shark cake is perfect and even included shark teeth.  Thank you Netsie for your hard work!

Happy Double Digits to my favorite little man!!!!

Layla is a teenager




We were at the Gaylord when Layla woke up on her birthday, so we did things alittle different this year!  She got a huge cookie and her favorite Vanilla Bean Frappuccino from Starbucks.  I think she was just as happy as every other birthday morning!



I still can't believe she is offically a teenager!



We got her the fun 13 balloons in gold.  I knew she'd have a fun time taking tons of pictures with them.


UNTIL the number 3 came off the string and floated AWAY!!  So sad y'all!


You can barely see it floating up high in the sky.

And then she was 1! heeheehee!



We went back to our neighborhood H_E_B and they gave her another free of charge.  How sweet are they?  That's wonderful customer service.  So the photo shoots continue.....




She tried so hard to get one with both puppies, but they are just too crazy!

Happy birthday to you Layla!  We love you!

Happy 4th of July



The 4th of July was a fun day.  We managed to get a picture of the 6 of us which is hard to do!



We celebrated with new friends at their house.  The kids swam, we ate yummy food and the girls tumbled.  The boys played laser gun wars and us adults had a fun time hanging out on the back porch.  At one point it rained and it felt so nice and cool outside.  The kiddos did sparklers without worry of it being to hot.




We had a wonderful day and we're thankful for our freedom and are proud  to celebrate our country!
