Rick's Semi Reunion

So last week a couple of my girlfriends from college came in town to visit. Yes I did go to school for a year, I got my degree in socializing. It was so much fun to see my girls and just be able to hang out and talk. The first night that they all got there, we had a BBQ and swam. My friend Heather came up from Houston, Melissa came from Utah and Jenni came from Utah/Houston she just moved back. These are the girls who stayed at my house, another couple of girls came for the BBQ but weren't able to join us for anything else. It was so much fun to be around everyone to see some of the girls being moms was so cool to see what we all have become and how much we have grown.

The crew all lubing up with sun screen. Although it didn't work for Melissa and Jenni they both got fried the first day so day two wasn't as great.
Chilling with the baby out on the tube showing Brooke a good time who we do things in Dallas.
Me and Jenni!
Looks simple and relaxing right????
Wrong Justin showed us no mercy it was so much fun!!! Zoom in and look at our faces they are hilarious.
Justin had us in some really good whips and we flew off a couple of times, but for the most part it was so much fun!!! The worst injury was Jenni and Melissa's sunburns!
I had such a good time with the girls and I can't wait to do it again. I hope that next time everyone can come and join in on the fun!!

Up and Ready

So Braxten got lots of cool things for his birthday, or course lots of legos, a couple of motorized items and some other things to build. We got him some water skis for the boat and he is a natural.

Way to go Braxten!!!!!! He was so nervous to get up he was afraid that he wouldn't make it in the first try and that he would go under the water, but he didn't and his look of surprise was priceless I wish that we had that on camera.

Braxten got here Sunday night to start the summer up right. Monday, June 1st Braxten turned 9!!!! I can't believe he is this old he is such a big kid. We had a lot planned for the day to make it special. We first started the day out with, sleeping in, he is such a sleeper!! When he woke up I started making his big birthday breakfast and we waited for Justin to get home.
Chocolate Chip pancakes and bacon!!! The boys said that the pancakes were gross, but the bacon was good!! Oh well! Then we meet up with his cousin Olivia who has been talking about Braxten coming for weeks! She was so excited to see him! We went to Let's Jump to get some of the wiggles out.
Then we did some FINE dining at McDonald's for lunch!!!!!! After that we came home and the boys did a little swimming while I got things ready for the evening.
Braxten made us a little something to eat!!!
Or he was just trying to hit the egg off my head for a free dinner, he didn't make it but it was worth the try.
We are so happy that all our family could get together for Braxten's big day. I think that the cupcakes were a hit, thank goodness!!!!!
Happy Birthday Braxten we love you and we are glad that you are here!!!
