Swimming at Grammy and Grandaddy's House

One of my favorite memories as a child was going
over to my Grammy and Grandaddy's house to swim.
We lived just about a mile from them growing up
so in the summers we would be over there almost everyday.
Yesterday, the whole family (minus Bobby and Steph) went over
there and ate lunch and swam.
Landry loves any excuse to swim and since we have
4 pools just in our family, she has no shortage of
places to do that!
After some swimming we got some yummy desert.
Landry of course wanted the ice cream.
That is her favorite thing to eat I think!
I love being able to hang out with my lil sis
My grandparents have these 2 little dachshunds, Duke and Daisy.
Landry loves them.
She doesn't know that you can't just pick them up and play
with them.
My Grandaddy had the hose and was sprating Duke, so
Landry got in on the action too.
Grammy, the butterfly whisperer with her helper!
I am so lucky that I still have their house to go swim and play at.
I am so glad to be able to pass this tradition down to my own daughter!
We had such a blast!

Fathers Day Weekend

This weekend was certainly a good one!
We got to spend time with a lot of our family.
Friday night, we went over to Tim's parents house
to see his cousin's new baby, Chase.
Landry has been looking forward to this for a while.
She is in love with babies right now!
Everytime we see one, she asks if she can go see
it and touch it.  It's the cutest thing and makes me so
excited for when the day comes that she gets to be a big sister!
I have been prepping her all week that Chase is a real baby
and not her dolls that she can just pat hard or swat at!
She was so cute with him.
She would just stare at him and try to touch him so gently.
As you can see, he wasn't as impressed with her!
Tim said he had forgotten how to hold a baby this small!

Saturday night, Dani and Bobby had a housewarming party.
Our whole family was there and so was Bobby's. 
It was so good to get together with all of them again.
I also got to see this lil lady.
I don't get to see my Grammy very much so when I do,
it's a special occasion.
Landry was chomping at the bit to get in the pool and play
Look at her cute new bikini!
I am so proud of these two
Their house is perfect for them and I cannot wait to
see all the memories they will make there!

Sunday was Father's Day.
We took my dad to our favorite restaurant,
Joe T. Garcia's.
We love this place and any excuse to go is good in our book.
I am so lucky to have the dad that I have.
He is so good not only me, but Tim too. 
He considers Tim a son and is always so thoughtful to him.
Love you Daddy!
This guy is a great father too!
I am so proud of Tim.
When I look at him with Landry it makes my heart beat faster.
He is so good with her and helps me out so much.
I couldn't imagine doing this parenting thing without him by my side.
Landry is one lucky little girl!

Family Date Night

Saturday night we decided to have a family date night.
It's very rare that we don't have plans on a
Saturday night, so we took full advantage of it.
First, we went to one of our favorite places to eat, Fuzzy's Tacos.
Then we went to Braum's to get some ice cream
When we got home we set up blankets and pillows in the living
room and watched Cars 2.  We watched Cars for the first time earlier
in the week and couldn't wait to watch the second one.
We loved it!
Then today we painted Landry's nails pink!
We had such a good time together!

Summer Lovin

Well, it's June!
Our summer has officially started.
I love being able to stay up a little
later and play outside.
Friday we headed to Clyde to see my cousin Brett graduate.
Dani and I rode together in her car
while my mom and dad took my car with Landry.
We of course had to stop for a Blizzard!
It is so hard for me to believe he is old enough to graduate.
I of course made a shirt for Landry to wear
just like I did for his brother Chase
That night we all stayed in a hotel
and it was just like old times.
I love these girls!
This is how Landry rode the next day home

Saturday afternoon we headed over to Tim's
parents house to swim and hang out
We had such a good time!
Yesterday we headed over to Bobby and Dani's
house to swim!
Landry loves swimming with her Uncle B!

Today Landry started her swim lessons.
She was really shy the first 25 minutes
but then towards the end she started warming
up and did really well.
Tonight when we got home we blew up Landry's
pool and let her swim some more.
It's going to be a great summer!
