Horseshoe Bay- Memorial Weekend

We decided to stay at the lake the entire holiday weekend and spent the next two nights at the Marriott at Horseshoe Bay. This is such a great and very family friendly resort; we had a blast and look forward to going back again soon!

Elise at the "beach." Do not be fooled by her smile. She was not a fan of the sand at all and basically stood frozen, in the same place, for a good 20 minutes.

Watching the boats with Tompa.

She was much happier back at the pool!

Fletch's First Birthday

We headed to Lake LBJ for Memorial Weekend. Saturday was Fletch's first birthday party and the kids all had a blast!

Elise still talks about the cotton candy Mr. Jeff made for her.
The slip and slide was a huge hit!!
Happy hour with GiGi.
But Elise's favorite person is Tompa. She follows him around and mimics everything he does. Hopefully she won't take up his martini habit!!! :)
It was a wonderful day at the lake and a great way to kick off summer!!!

Last Day of School

Elise has had a fantastic 2 years at Harvest Day School and we were so sad to see them close their doors.

With her sweet sweet teacher, Ms. Dana.
The kids put on the cutest End of the Year Performance!! It was darling and I was so impressed... Elise totally sang and danced her little heart out.

Crazy how quickly this year flew by.

Weekend with "Old" Friends!

We we first moved to San Antonio almost 4 years ago (yes... it has really been just about 4 years!) we met three awesome couples; Lindsey and Nate, Shae and Tomas, and Christine and Rob. All the husbands and wives got along so well together; we had a lot of fun! Within that first year, 3 of us became pregnant and we talked about how our kids would be such great friends.
First pic of all the kids together- Ben's arrival!
(Christine is holding Ben; we let Lindsey sit this one out ;)
And... the last time all the kids were together... because all 3 couples moved away!!! wth?!?! ;) I guess it's called being a responsible adult... gotta go where the job takes you :)

BUT they all came back to visit us. Well, Christine and Rob didn't make it this time but they were here about a year ago...

Ben, Elise, and Beckham at Sea World
Elise loves the carousel and always insists on a purple horse!
Fun with Daddy!
Sometimes it's not so bad being pregnant...
Matt gets to take Elise on all the "scary" rides; she loves them!!
At 2 Bros. BBQ
It was such a great weekend and we look forward to seeing them again... maybe in Oregon next time!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day 2011

With my sweet little girl who made me a momma!
(and 23 weeks pregnant with baby girl #2)
Our little family.
We went out to eat with my family at the Grill at Leon Springs. We ate outside (notice the pink cheeks; it was a tad warm but Elise always has fun on patios.)
Tompa, Elise, and GiGi
Elise and GiGi
Such a happy little girl!
