The pool is officially open!

Memorial Day weekend marks the first true sign of summer! Time to clean up the winters work on our flower beds, and plant new flowers that will hopefully stand the Texas heat for more than 4 weeks!

We have been working hard to make our backyard a retreat we can really enjoy with the kids and our friends this summer--here are some pictures of our latest work! Y'all come over and sit by the fire or under the pergola and have some tea (or something stronger) we would love to see all our friends for a swim date this summer!

Monday's Focus on Health!

Today has already been a day that feels three days long--todays update is my focus on health.  

Here are the things I am focused on health wise this summer...

1.  Following my trainers diet.  This easier said than done.  
2. Doing 30 mins of Cardio 5 days a week.  
3. Taking a multi-vitamin everyday.
4.  Doing one detox.
5. Drinking 64 oz of water a day.
6. Getting a mammogram (my first).

These might seem basic but I have been working on getting stronger and building muscle for a year now.. and I have gotten stronger, I do see a difference in my body, but I'm still not where I want to be... so my journey to commit to my health for my family and myself continues. 

What is your number one health tip? leave me a comment here!

The Start of Summer...

So the opening of the Pirate Ship snow cone stand signifies the real start of summer for our house.  Aida and now Christopher absolutely LOVE snow cones from the pirate ship.  This is part of our weekend summer routine, swim, eat, bathe and then go to the pirate ship in our PJ's just like the we did here.  This start of summer was extra special as Nana and Pops joined us for our first Pirate Ship visit of the season.  It was a great day....



After snow cones, everyone was tuckered out....all snuggled up watching movies in bed. 

Bring on Summer...This year is going to be a great one!

Aida's Spring Kindergarten Performance

Kindergarten has been so much fun and one of the best memories we will have of this year is when Ms. Paris Class got to perform their spring song in front of the whole school.  Daddy, Grandma, Mommy and Christopher all came to cheer Aida on.  It was such a fun day.  Here are some pictures of her in action.  


 Christopher sat right with Aidas class and watched the performance.  Here he is with one of Aida's besties....

Aida and Grandma....
 I snapped some pictures of Christopher while we were waiting on Aida...these are so telling of his larger than life personality. 

My too munchkins are growing up so fast.. It's hard to believe kindergarten is over in 5 weeks.  Better sign off before I get teary....
