4th Fun!

We went to Houston to spend time with my family for the 4th.  We celebrated my mom's birthday.
The kids were in a parade with my dad.  The had a blast and were so cute!  It made me think of all of the parades I was in as a child!

We had fun hanging out and the kids enjoyed doing fireworks.  It was a relaxing, fun 4th of July.  The kids stayed in Houston for a few days with my parents while we came back to Austin.  They had a blast hanging out and being spoiled by them.

Swim team

The kids were both on swim team this year.  They had a fun time and improved their skills.  Barrett really enjoyed doing backstroke and breast stroke.  He got a medal for most improved in his back. I love that they are both confident swimmers. The highlight for them was swimming at the UT swim center.  It was pretty cool!  Here are some pics from our swim season.

Memorial Weekend

We had a fun memorial day weekend.  We spend the day in Fredericksburg as a family.  Our first stop was Enchanted Rock.  It was very windy at the top.  We had a fun time hiking and looking at the views.

After Enchanted Rock, we went to Marburger Orchards and picked peaches and blackberries.

We headed into town for lunch and to walk around the town. It was a fun day for us. 

 We were able to spend time with Kurt, Suzy, and the kids too.  It was a great, relaxing weekend.
