Pre-Game Fun!

Michael and I decided to take a little time to celebrate Gabby before she started school.  We had a lot of fun spoiling her and taking her to do special things

Gabby had science experiments and had a lot of fun mixing ingredients and watching the water change colors and viscosity. 
Grandma and Grandpa drove her to the lake house while so she could squeeze out every minute of fun possible that weekend.  Mommy waited for Daddy to get off of work and then we went and got wood for the tree house and arrived very late that night.

Daddy finished putting up the hand rails all the way around the tree house with a little help from Gabby. Gabby took at least four rides on the boat and even swam in the lake.  She loved every moment of the time at the lake house!

The day after we arrived home from the lake house was a fun day as well.  Gabby swam and played with friends all day long.  Then it was time to go to the Texans pre-season game with Daddy.  Gabby fell asleep on the way to the football game because she had too much fun all day long. Daddy and Gabby watched one quarter of the game while drinking Sprite and eating the sugariest funnel cake you have ever seen, but Gabby still fell asleep.  Daddy took her home.  Gabby says it was the best football game ever.  It was a lot of work for poor Daddy but he said it was a fun time together.  I think we squeezed in the most possible fun before Gabby started her career in school.  Hopefully she remembers all of the trips to the Children's Museum and playing with friends when she is older.

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…
