Mrs. Ashley Roby Vogt

On August 27, 2011, my sister-in-law, Ashley Heather Roby became Ashley Roby Vogt. It was a great week and weekend of celebrating the special occasion. Ty and I drove down to katy on tuesday and Travis flew down on thursday. Thursday night we had a dinner with the Devine's and morgan's to get the weekend started. Which is always a great time when that clan gets together. Ty had such a great time playing with Jack. Jack is 3 and has better manners and character than many adults. Even at the little age of 3 he can make anybody feel welcome. He always makes Ty feel his age and is super, super sweet to him...always shares and constantly wants to play...he has the sweetest to see him make ty feel at home is a great characteristic...and makes a mommy smile.! So, of course, he and ty had a blast and even little Wyatt got some boy, play time as's hard to believe that little Wyatt is 10 months..such a cutie. Trae and I headed out a little early in order to get my mom from the airport...she not only came to see ashley get married but to be my saving grace/babysitter for Ty. Definitely couldn't have made it through the weekend without her. When the WHOLE family is in the wedding...including Ty...without mom I am not sure how we would have managed. So, thank you mom for all your help. and yes, Ty was a ring-bearer along with his cousin McCain..and although both their mommies were concerned on their performance..they ran down that isle like pro's. They did such a great job....and then mom and Tanner (McCain's daddy) swept them up and helped escort them out of the ceremony...haha.
Anyways, back to the weekend. Friday we had the bridal luncheon at Benjy's in houston. It was wonderful...if you are in the area you need to check it out! That night was the rehearsal and then the dinner at Perry's Steakhouse..again, another delicious dinner. If you ever attend please get the "pork Chop plate."'s essentially a pig on a plate...huge. I felt barbaric eating it..or at least, un-ladylike as I sit to eat my 10" plate full of pork while everyone else..except Tanner(thanks tanner) a little 6 oz steak. lol. yes, travis helped eat it..but, we still didn't dint it so I brought it home with us..I hated wasting all that food...haha.
Saturday was of course wedding bell day! It was great getting pampered with all the girls and then being able to be apart of Ashley's special day. She of course, looked GORGEOUS..and like always, lite the room up. It was a beautiful ceremony...and Ashley and Brian are now married. The reception followed and it was everything Ashley wanted...a Party! and if you know Ashley you know how fitting that is..haha. It was a great time and if you didn't have a good time it was your fault..haha. It was definitely a success considering travis busted out the worm in her honor..haha.
Ashley and Brian are now in The Grand Caymen's and hopefully having the time of their life! :)
Here are some collages of the weekend...i know they are small but hopefully you can make them out! :)

Bridal Brunch and Rehearsal Dinner.

quiet sounds....

This weekend Ty went with his Mom-Mom to visit his cousins in Abilene..yes, that means Travis and I stayed here. Maybe, my second time away from Ty in 18 months..haha. But, I was able to catch up on some rest and get things accomplished...HOWEVER, I missed my little boy. I wasn't sure what to do when I didn't have a a little boy to chase around...I honestly, don't know how to sit in peace anymore. haha. I missed not having a little boy screaming, "mommy, mommy..up" and wanting to be picked up..or chasing him around telling him not to get into But, it was a great weekend but we were glad to see our little boy get back...just to know he didn't really miss us and he wanted to drive the "truck." ha. Here are some of our daily activities that I missed while he was gone...

my little assistant to home decorating...
snack time was lonely without him...and i got to eat the whole snack to myself. haha.

I missed my assistant in the kitchen...and how every time I am at the island ty says, "yay" and goes and grabs a kitchen table chair to "push" to the island to help mommy! makes me so excited for our kitchen island and many memories of my boys helping.
our walks to the parks...didn't do any of that...Travis I think is too big for the
watching hunting shows with daddy. although I got my fair share of hunting shows this in all weekend...Ty wasn't there to "oohh" at all the deer and ducks.
ty did get a haircut he'll be looking spiffy for Aunt Ashley's Wedding Saturday.
before he left we went and got sno-cones...and i think he loved it!
although there are many days my little boy wears me out... i miss him tremendously when he is gone!
but, today we are back on track with a date to the park, errands and packing for our trip to Katy for ASHLEY'S Wedding!!!! :)

And, since Ty was gone baby Ryder was in full active mode for he and his brother...makes me a little nervous how active he is...hope he's getting all his energy out in womb! lol.
Little Ryder, according to some pregnancy books, should be 17" long and about 3 lbs. just a growing little boy...and so is my belly! haha. Crazy to think i am already in my third trimester with 10 weeks to go! WOW!!

I hear the sounds of Ty banging on the door...sounds likes nap time is over! haha!
gotta go!
