Snowcone Maker

Jon's mom surprised us by sending us a snowcone/ slushy maker, and we have greatly enjoyed it.

 See Kiki's grin as she eats a delicious, refreshing, slushy!
She is just too cute!

Houston Zoo!

Today, I took the kids to the Houston Zoo. I had wanted to take them for a while and so I woke up this morning and took charge of my desire. I went to the kids and asked them if they would be interested in going. They were excited, said yes and wandered when we would go (thinking maybe sometime next week). I responded: Right now! They could not believe it. They moved so fast, we were in the car ready to go for the day with chores done in less than a hour. The Zoo was a lot of fun. Below are a few pictures of our outing.



The kids looking at "Jonathan the Great" roaring!



 The African village was awesome! 
They had African drums, masks, and huts for the kids to play with.


Logan and Kiki loved the petting zoo!

The Houston Zoo has an awesome splash park which was a great to cool off from the heat!


On our way out of the zoo we all stopped for a refreshing slushy! 
Look at those grins!

Seth and Suzanne come for a visit

This weekend Julien's cousin Seth and his wife Suzanne came to visit. It was really good to see them both. We had not seen them in a long time, and I had never met Suzanne. While they were here we got to go into DOW to see some skimmers hatching. The skimmers nest in there on an old parking lot. Because of the special occasion DOW opens their gates to the public. It is the only time we can go into DOW property so I really wanted to seize the opportunity.

 After the skimmers, we headed to the beach for so sun and boogie boarding.

We had a really fun time with Seth and Suzanne and hope to be able to visit with them soon.

Pure Energy end of the year show!

I have now been at Pure Energy Dance studio for a year, and I have had the best time teaching there. I love students, and love the girls I work with. They are the best! The teachers got to perform (score!!) a sassy jazz piece to Fever from Beyonce. It was so fun to rehearse and perform with these girls.

Cub scout day camp!

This past week I was able to go to camp Karankawa with Julien and Logan. It was a fun filled week. They had a daycare there for Kiki which was really nice since the camp was all day for a week, it would have been hard to find a sitter for so long.
 The boys had so much fun and so did I. I helped with the Webelos group (Julien's group). The boys were able to do archery, bb gun shooting, learn about frogs, snakes, and other creepy crawlies, swim (every day), do art project, play sports, and much much more.

Kiki was so good. Here she is rubbing her eyes; we had to wake up early to make it to camp on time.

Logan with his best friends! They are so cute!!!

Here is Logan eating lunch right before his leather working session.

Julien's den! The week the boys had day camp was so hot! 
Being out in the heat pulling wagons was tough.
