Grandma's 60th Birthday!!

Grandma turned 60 this year! All of the grandkids and kids went to her house to celebrate not to mention Aunt Sharon and Uncle Jerry came to be part of the momentous occasion.  It was a very busy weekend.  We all went to a special dinner celebrating Uncle Kenneth's Birthday.  Then we went to Leslie's husband's new PT clinic to celebrate his grand opening (all of the children ran around crazy inside while we admired the actual office).  Then everyone went back to Grandma's house. To her surprise Uncle Skipper was there to join in the celebration when she arrived home!  They basically locked Grandma in her room while everyone quickly set up the celebration. Balloons were blown up, margaritas and strawberry daiquiris were made, and all of Sharon's decorations she had made her hung up.  The place quickly looked like a party.

The kids were pretending to have broken body parts and being ninjas at the same time. Who knew crepe paper was so entertaining?!

Everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to celebrate Grandma.
We all hope that Grandma enjoyed her birthday celebration. It was a wonderful time having all of the kids together at one time. We love you Grandma! Happy 60th.  Here's to many many more of these fun celebrations!

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…

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.

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).

Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
