Chicken Nuggets and Peanutbutter

So as a mom it is very difficult for me to allow Gabby to be introduced to the favorite level of the food pyramid, the "other" section also known as "junk food."  However, today I let my hair down and decided to live on the wild side (although I still wrote down all of Gabby's foods and made sure she had all of her food groups). Gabby had a reasonably healthy breakfast, but still fun, we had a yellow breakfast: eggs and banana slices.  Then we had Chic-Fil-A chicken nuggets with Daddy and two french fries for lunch.  Gabby hasn't been eating well this week, but don't worry she scarfed her lunch while squealing with glee watching the children play.  Then mommy snuck in some healthy food for a snack: 'b' snacks that is...blueberries and bananas scratch that... strawberries since Gabby discovered them they are her favorite food!  She actually didn't have a dinner, half a peanut butter sandwich, some graham crackers (after she threw them on the floor), and a taste of ice cream. 

Gabby went to Kemah for the first time today to take pictures in bluebonnets, however; the bluebonnets weren't really very blue so we decided to just play in the field.  We will find bluebonnets before the season is over! Even though our evening didn't go to plan we had a lot of fun with friends! Kemah is a very enticing place, there were things I wanted to do so I can only imagine what it's going to be like when Gabby comprehends what all of those amusement rides and games are for.  We had a wonderful evening with friends and Gabby was fast asleep before we even arrived home.

Rock Star Party

Gabby's party was everything she imagined it.  The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done.  Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs.  The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned.  After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5).  A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms.  Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends.  It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!  

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day was a relaxing day.  Michael has been working extremely hard building things at the escape room.  We decided to spend the day with his best friend.  It was a fun and relaxing day enjoying the kids and cooking burgers.  I think these pictures depict our day:

I think Gabby knows that she is so blessed to have such a loving, caring, involved fun Daddy.  I know that I am lucky to have such an amazing partner sharing this crazy life of parenting and making memories.  We love you Michael and we both feel so blessed for the ways you choose to so your love.  You make our lives amazing.  Love you.

Becoming a Marlin

One evening while eating dinner at Texas Roadhouse (our usual on Friday nights so we can see Daddy for an hour while he’s working) Gabby saw Olympic swimmers on the television and said I want to do that.  Michael and I have been wanting Gabby to become less fearful of the water and a stronger swimmer so we immediately agreed that becoming a swimmer was a great idea.  Two weeks later I had all of the information needed and we were signed up for the neighborhood swim team.  Little did I know how intense summer swim team would be!
To be allowed on the team you must be capable of swimming across the entire 25 meter pool, there is no time limit and you are allowed to hold on to the rope as much as you need.  Gabby made it across the pool in about 2 minutes, 20 seconds with a lot of encouragement from the coaches and a lot of holding onto the ropes and taking breaks.  I must add that the evaluation was in April and it was cold, but she never even mentioned the temperature of the water the…
