Schlitterbahn pictures

This weekend I went to Schlitterbahn with some of the girls I teach with. We left early Friday morning and got back Sunday night. We had a great time and LOTS of laughs. Can't wait to go again!

Here's a picture of our room.
We even had a kitchen!

First ride of the day on Friday -
The Ragin' River

After a fun day at the park, we went to dinner Friday night at The Gristmill in Gruene, Texas.

We had a really long wait so we had to find something to do
to help pass the time......why not take some goofy pictures?

Saturday night dinner at Adobe Verde
in Gruene - great Mexican food!

My partner in crime, Jennifer.
She will be my partner teacher
this coming year!

On the way home on Sunday.....

Yummy brunch at the Cracker
Barrel and then some shopping
at the outlet malls in San Marcos.

Twilight Convention - OMG!!!!!

Okay all you Twilight fans out there.................The daughter of a friend of mine (Cady) who is a HUGE Twilight fan had the opportunity to attend one of the Twilight Conventions in Minneapolis last week. She wrote about it on Facebook and so I copied some of her pictures to put on my blog - they are too good not to share. I wish I could have gone with her - how fun is that?

The guy who plays Sam Uley on the right
& Jared on the left from New Moon

Cady ran into them again at the
airport - how does she get so lucky?

Cady got called to be on stage with Peter Facinelli (he plays Edward's dad......Dr. Cullen) and she even got to ask a question - so cool! Peter is married to Jennie Garth from 90210.

Again, super lucky!

Billy Black - Jacob's dad in the movie

The vampire, Laurent
Bella's friend, Angela Weber

The director of Twilight, Catherine Hardwicke.

New Moon comes out on November 20th and I can't wait to go see it! Check out a sneak peek of the movie by clicking on the link below.

Showing off our artwork.............

The girls went to an art camp this past week at The Woodlands Children's Museum in the mall. They were a little nervous about it at first because they weren't sure what to expect, but ended up loving it and wanting me to sign them up for another one. They both really like art and creating things so this was a perfect way for them to spend some fun summer afternoons together.

Goofing around with the playdough
they made

Logan wanted to get in on some of that action!

A display of several of their pieces

Lauren's clay pot that she is
so proud of - she told me she was
the last one to be done with hers (and
I totally believe that). She's methodical
and takes her time like her daddy!

And here's Leah's clay pot -
she told me that she was the first
one done (and I totally believe that -
a little like mommy maybe?)

Showing off their rainsticks and kalideoscopes....very cool!

Here's the masks they made - can you tell who is who????
The day they made these, they came running out to the car with them on, and I was thinking that Logan would be scared of them. Not at all! He could not stop laughing! He was laughing one of those deep, deep belly laughs that I absolutely love.

4th of July Slideshow (scroll down towards bottom of blog to view)

I put together a slideshow of pictures from this year's 4th of July. The weatherman says this year's 4th had record breaking heat and I believe it! I also included a couple of pictures of our
good friend, Tim, being baptised at the lake. Tim is in our small group bible study from church and was saved back in February of this year. He decided to follow through with baptism with his family by his side and our friend Wyndell baptising him on July 4th. It was really neat to see!

Our Cousin Tyler's First Birthday

Wednesday we headed back up to Jewett for my nephew Tyler's first birthday. It's hard to believe that one year ago he was in the NICU having trouble breathing and we couldn't even see or hold him. Praise God that he is one healthy fellow today and you would never know he had a rough start. Tyler and Logan are about seven months apart and Tyler is just as big as Logan is.

His party was outside at their home and had all kinds of fun games and actvities. Uncle Jason also grilled some yummy hot dogs! Here are some pictures from the par-tay........

Here's the birthday boy in a pool just his size!

Here's Papaw with the birthday boy chillin'
on the front porch!

The girls with their cousin Taylor
cooling off in the Zebra pool!

Logan swingin' with Papaw!

Everyone really enjoyed Uncle Jason's playset he built this summer. It looks alot like the one we have in our backyard.

Here's Logan ready to par-tay!

Uncle Jay was hosin' them down!

The Egg Race

The Ball Toss

Here's Uncle Jay trying to decide
how he's going to hang the birthday

Logan was trying to be a big helper by
sweeping the grass.

Here's my little man taking his best swing at the pinata.




Wait a didn't do anything!

Oh well - I'm cute and that's all that matters!

Here's Leah giving it her best shot!

Lauren had some really good swings too!

It finally busted and the kids made a beeline for all the loot!
We had a great time at your party Tyler - happy first birthday!!!!
