Lake House

We had a wonderful time at the lake house this year. It was a nice relaxing trip and all the kids did really well. We were there Thursday through Saturday, split the meals, had plenty of rooms for sleeping, and enjoyed our time together with family. The girls LOVED the water.

This was a first

Today when I answered the phone this is what I heard on the other line...

"Hi Sweetie, is your Momma there?"
I don't know who was more embarrassed. Me or her?
As a side note, this has been my girls favorite thing to do at the park lately.

MOOOOve out of my way!

Yesterday, the girls and I dressed up like this...

If you went to Chick-Fil-A yesterday dressed up like a cow you got an entire free meal. So the girls and I put black construction paper on white shirts, made black hooves, made ear head-bands, ribbon tails, and Mooed on over.
It was quite embarrassing when we walked into a store full of people and no one was dressed like a cow. But, you better believe I got 3 entire meals with fries, large drinks, and all for free.
When Ben got home from his test last night at 7, I put my cow gear back on and headed to a new Chick-Fil-A to get free food again for him. This time it was an outdoor walk up window only. You better believe I felt like the biggest cow by the time the night was over.

4th of July

All 16 grandkids at the pool...pretty cute!

For the 4th we headed up to Dallas to be with Nana and Pop since they are home for the whole month. We had a lot of fun being with cousins, doing fire works, swimming, going to see Toy Story 3, special trip to "Amazing Jake's", girls night a Cheesecake factory and seeing Eclipse, and just being together. Ben came with us and studied for Step 2 all day then spent a couple hours with us in the evenings. We had a wonderful few days and look forward to more time together with everyone at the Lake House.
