Some Updates and Some Celebrating

Lots of pictures to serve as some updates... a little "day in the life" snap shots! Then we'll get to a sweet celebration for my adorable nephew G-Dawg!

The weather has been so nice lately... a bit bi-polar at times... hot, cold, warm... jackets... shorts... sunscreen... not. But rain or shine, cold or hot we have been taking it to the streets... and to the dam! 

There is a lake real close to our house with this great dam that runs all the way across one side of the lake. If I'm walking fast I can make it in about 20 minutes down and then we get to come back... so it's a great workout and the kids love it. Caden can take off on his scooter and I don't have to worry about cars, etc. It's awesome! Then at the end we can stop, rest and throw rocks... and what beats throwing rocks?!!




View from the curve...


I took Caden to a new place to get his "dude cut" the other day. We went to an old school Barber that has been in Georgetown forEVER! He looks pretty handsome, huh?


I could have stayed in there all day... anxious to see what stories I'd hear and who might walk in next. Caden's blond hair presents quite a challenge for Barbers... I think this one did a pretty good job, so there is a good chance we'll be back! :)



Kaki... my little entertainer was sure to show everyone her Birdie book while we waited on Caden... oh my... she is a mess! She loves her books...

She loves to hang out in front of C's book shelf in his room and read...


Justin did a little hair experimentation the other night... thinking that if we combed Kaki's hair back at night she'd wake up without it all in her face...

It worked... 

Almost...


My sweet girl... laughing... actually she was being a mean girl here and throwing things at my head and then laughing about it... Ha!


Sweet Birdie... KK and Aunt Emily worked the re-sale racks this weekend to help me complete Kaki's birthday outfit!! :)


Silly pic with Mommy/Mama! :)


Batman... oh my


Kaki loves to sit in her window seat... and read!


NEW SHOES!!


Trying on clothes for a special occasion this weekend and my sweet girl trying on ALL of my shoes... pulls them ALL off the shelf... she's a nut!


But a cute nut...


The other night on my walk this little cardinal caught my eye... isn't he gorgeous??! See him?


In the yard... jean bubble shorts... love it!


Cra-cra hair!


Okay, so now for the celebrating!!

We headed to Houston this weekend for a quick trip to celebrate ol' G-Dawg and his parents at his baby dedication. It was a fun time with family and a timely reunion after Bop's experience in West this week. We were so thankful that God chose to protect Bop from harm and left he and his employees unscathed after a very close call in the West fertilizer plant explosion... what a week it was for our country... was it not? Thankful that our hope is not in this world, but for the one to come and in a God who never comes and goes. He remains!

So to say that we were grateful for this weekend goes without saying... 

Kaki and Caden are some high maintenance travelers... just look at 'em! :)


Wait... there was supposed to be a pic of Caden too... Blogger! Maybe it will be later...

Pretty much as soon as we rolled into Houston we went to the park... duh!

The cousins were ready to roll... ha!


G and Me! (I know it's I, but ME rhymes!)


Caden and Kaki LOVE G's toys... go figure!


We did some serious tree climbing...


Which led to roof sitting...


But thankfully Caden didn't opt for the tree climbing... he used the ladder to get to the roof!


He didn't much like sitting on this limb... but he loves his Bop!


Justin is such a boy... chillin' on the roof!


Bop had a lap full of pj matchin' cuzzies! :)


Sunday morning we watch Cori and Trent make the commitment to raise G in a home who loves God, people and the church and we were so glad that we could be there to support them in that decision... we think it's a good one! :)

We took the opportunity to get some pics of all of dressed up!


Opps... here is the pic... Caden... headphones... blanket...neck pillow... tv... done and done!


We had a great weekend celebrating G and had so much fun being with our Cox Fam favorites! We love y'all!

Happy Monday!!
