On Saturday we headed to Fort Worth to celebrate a 6th Birthday and Mother's Day. Tyler and Gk's cousin, Jake had a fun party and Ty and GK loved being apart of it.
It was a full day of non stop fun. Tball, Swimming Party, Soccer, and more Swimming. Tyler loved all the swimming and Georgia Kate, well once she warmed up to it she loved it. I am actually doing Mommy and Me swim lessons with her this year, so I have a feeling she will be a fearless fish very soon. Tyler will be taking them at the same time, so it works out great with our schedule.
We always love getting to spend some fun quality time with Ryan's family. Both of the kids crashed on the way home and went right back to sleep when we got home, and Tyler slept in his clothes. You know he had fun. Nana and Papa are actually coming to watch Tyler play Tball on Thursday so we will get another visit with them very soon.
Big week for me as I will be heading to Washington DC for the AJLI Annual Conference. It is my last trip with AJLI and JLBC. I have been so thankful for all of the wonderful experiences and people I have met through these conferences. A little bittersweet but at the same time I can't wait to CELEBRATE!! Now, I guess this means I better get packing. So thankful for Ryan, Ghee, and Poppy for all of their help and support while I am away. I never have to worry about Tyler or GK. Thanks!
Yesterday was such a special treat for me. It started bright and early as I made my way to get my sweet, Amma to take her to church. My parents had been out of town last week, and my Mom takes Amma to church every Sunday.
We did not want her to be by herself on Mother's Day so we took Amma to her church, which is where Ty goes to School. Ty sat with us in church, which is where they have Chapel on Wednesday Morning. After Church we took her to Jack N The Box for Breakfast. I know you are all shaking your head but my Mom takes her there every Sunday so that is where she likes to go and it is routine for her. She did forget what she usually orders, but thankfully my Mom was just a phone call away.
I am so thankful for that special time we were able to spend with Amma. She is truly one of a kind and a very special Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother. I did miss not being able to celebrate with my Mom, but as always I am so thankful and blessed to have such a wonderful Mom and Ghee. We all love and adore her so very much.
So thankful for a sweet and fun Mother's day. I was able to get out and go for a walk/run by myself.... starting the training process, again. I am running a 5K at the end of June so it is time to get busy. I exercise 3-4 times a week, but running is a whole different story. I downloaded the Couch to 5K to help me train. ;)
What a crazy and eventful past two days. Yesterday afternoon we had a a really bad storm hit our area. High winds and Hail. Ty thought it was snowing, or had snowed because our yard was covered. We lost all power around 2:30 pm and it finally came back on at 7:00 this morning. We are very thankful that we did not have any major damage with our trees, or have any fall. Still in shock over that..... I guess that spring clean up a couple of months ago helped.
I ended up taking the kids to my parents last night when we heard it was going to be a while with out power. Today was Muffins for Moms at Ty's School so I figured I needed to try and look nice and not like I just rolled out of bed and can't see anything. Ty's class put on a cute little performance and we had muffins together. Short and Sweet.
I came back home to clean up and clean out our fridge and freezer. A good reason to clean out and get rid of stuff. It is has been rainy off and on all day and I can hear the rain as I type, just hoping it is not as bad as yesterday and the power stays on. Nothing like a perfect storm to throw you off balance, just a little.
You can tell that Summer is right around the corner because Snow Cone stands are opening back up. These are Tyler's absolute favorite, well I mean who does not love a snow cone?!?!. We were at the park yesterday afternoon and since there is a snow cone stand right across the street I decided to treat the kids to their first snow cone of the season, actually GK's first ever snow cone. I think she will be a fan, as well. I simply adore being able to capture silly moments with Tyler and GK. Those two are still best friends and love each other so much.
Saturday marked our last Soccer game of the Season. We had such a fun Spring playing soccer and as always it is fun to see the growth that occurs during the Season.
Of course the best part of playing a sport is a fun party and a trophy. We had our end of the year party right after Ty's game on Saturday at CiCi's pizza. It was actually nice doing it that way since our week has been a little full. Tyler was so excited when Ryan handed him his trophy, and you should see his collection. ;) He is very proud of all of his trophy's.
Slowly wrapping things up for the year. We still have a few baseball games left but it will be over very soon, as well. It is nice just having to focus on one sport right now, instead of two. I will blink and school will be out. May is already flying by and it is a full month for us. I am kind of getting excited about Summer.
God has blessed me in so many wonderful ways. I am married to wonderful Man, and I am the Mom of three beautiful Children. Tyler, Georgia Kate,and Landry our beautiful son who is in Heaven. I have an amazing family and wonderful friends. I hope you enjoy this little peak in to our family.
