Sandhills...


I grew up going to the Sandhills in Monahans, but have not been there in years...like since junior high/high school. So when a friend suggested going there I was all about it..now that the kids are older. I was a little skeptical with Claire..took my ergo...but never even used it. She sat at the base of the hills and played for a good portion and between all the other friends/moms there she was always cared for! and at the end I took her down the hills! All the kids had a blast! and not going to lie..I did too...seeing all their faces is always the best part! We got there about 9:30ish... (only 45min-or so from our house) and left about 11:45..took a picnic lunch and just had a great time! We had our our little hill and picnic space..which was all perfect for our little crew!  Claire, as expected, feel asleep on the way home, and hanna was close behind...and then cam and thenTy (since they had stayed up late the night before). It was a great time and I can't wait to go back! 

ROADTRIP! (we have the best neighbors...and a built in babysitter)..hehe!

Here we goooo....



It was a perfect morning...not too hot..with just a little breeze (that sometimes blew into the kids eyes..and ty did.not.like.that). Next time will make sure kids sunglasses are in the car before leaving.or bring ty's googles! haha!



Lots of racing going on...


sophi was ready to go too!




ty always wanted me to go with him...1) b/c he was tired..and 2)b/c I would carry his disc up the hill...lol.


claire got in on the action...


she had a blast!

























we got home about 1ish...and got all cleaned up..(bathtub is filthy.haha) and had popcorn and a movie to rest! sand will be found everywhere...but so worth it! so much fun! but for sure, a workout!


until next time sandhills! :)


but before we left for the sandhills...Ty had his very first sleepover! I wasn't as nervous as I expected I would be when I thought of this day before...but, considering it was just right next door..(with our neighbors) I was absolutely ok with it! ha! I completely trust them and knew if any issues arose in middle of the night...i was just next door! but, of course, there wasn't...so, apparently they went to bed around 11 and woke up at 6! (hmm...sounds like the same story when he spent the night at our house). haha! silly boys.. 
So, the next day..they were both pretty tired! But, no doubt, he had a great time! We are so very blessed by such a great neighborhood and neighbors! 
Ty's first sleepover...may, 27, 2015! 5 years old!

Memorial Day Weekend...

How is it already the End of May? So crazy! so, that means we celebrated memorial day! Trav played golf and the kids and I swam at my parents with my mom,..meme and niece. It poured this morning..but was an absolute gorgeous afternoon and evening. Perfect day for golf and the pool. Thankful for our service men and women who made that possible! :)

Sunday morning...






Sunday Afternoon...consisted of the pool as well...

 all meme needed was an umbrella drink and she was set! haha



Monday....Ty and his drum set! :) boxes were drums and giraffe was symbols... :)


back to the pool....this little one WILL.NOT.STAY.OFF.DIVINGBOARD! she LOVES to jump off..but i don't like the fact of her doing it by herself yet...so, that means, i usually camp out at board until I make everyone go to shallow so I can have a break! haha..but, doesn't last long as she makes her way back! ha!


Sophi is with us for the week so, she's starting her summer out pretty fun too! poor brady and casey had to stay in abilene for their last week of school!
chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool...(is that right..lol).


my little daredevil water bug
What the big kids do...she will too!





Hope the week continues with this beautiful weather..all the rain is wonderful but some areas are getting pounded and flooding...all the families who have lost family members and homes are in our thoughts and prayers! I can't even imagine!
