Family Fun

The last couple of weeks have been kind of crazy, but our family has had tons of fun together! We went to see the Texas Rangers play at the Dr. Pepper Ballpark with some friends. It's the first baseball game we've attended all together. The boys (OK, me too) were more interested in the food, the souvenirs, and the giant mascot than the actual game, but we had a great time!
Baby loves cotton candy!

Happy boys

These two "monkeys" belong to Shannon. I love them dearly, and these crazy faces made me laugh HARD. Classic!

The next day I took my little cowboys to our church's Easter Eggstravaganza! They had a great time hunting for eggs, riding the ponies, jumping in the bounce house, and lounging on the lawn.

It didn't take long for the boys to track down some friends!

A few days later, Little Middle and Baby hosted their own Easter Egg Hunt for some of their preschool friends. It almost got rained out, but God showed mercy on their frantic mother and the sun broke through the clouds!

The mamas and some of the girls...sweet friends!

Finally, over the long Easter weekend we spent some quality time hiking on the trails around Lake Grapevine. Hubby had taken the two older boys out there a few months ago, but it was a first for Baby and me. At the last minute we decided to take Abby Dog with us. She had a great time (and showed surprising stamina for a short-legged, aging, overweight puppy love!)!

Off to a good start.

Mom and Dad are roughin' it!

Toward the end of the day, she leaned in too far to get a drink from the creek and fell in. Goliath was quick to point out that we're lucky she can doggy paddle.

Taking a break...

On the way back down, Baby started complaining that he was tired. Daddy made him a deal: Walk down the hills, and I'll carry you up the slopes. I guess it was easier on dear old Dad to carry him like this!

I am now going to start carring that way - even if it's not easier maybe the blood will rush to his head and it will make him quieter!!:-)
