Family Fun Weekend

We had so much fun with my cousin, Kristen, her husband, Kevin, and their cute daughter Lucy! They just left today and it's too quiet around here.

The weekend was all about the food, really. I feel like I need to detox this week...but I'm sure that I won't.

We had to have donut Friday!
The guys went to play golf that morning, but Marcus left us some donuts.

I'm sure Kevin and Kristen haven't had a donut since we went to Colorado last August and forced donut Friday on them then too. They are pretty healthy.

The girls played with the puppies:

And we are super fancy now and got a pool!


Friday night, my parents came to babysit and we went to dinner!

me, Marcus, my brother in law, Darren

Kevin, sister Kelly, Kristen.

We had a great time. The kids had lots of fun with out us too!

Saturday morning we rode the train by the Ft. Worth Zoo:

The weather was perfect! Afterward, we went to Sweet Sammies for some ice cream sandwiches.

After nap time, we went to my sister's for dinner, then to get snow cones!
Told you it was all about the food!

Kristen and I always had SO much fun growing up together. We never lived in the same state, but spent most our Christmases together. And we would visit in the summers. We always got in trouble for staying up too late and giggling.

Kristen has been married 14 years and we've been married 12. So it is really amazing that we had daughters so close together. It is such a blessing that they will be able to grow up together too.

And we will NEVER tell them to be quiet and go to bed! Hopefully we will be up late giggling with them!

It was sad to say good bye.
Katie was asking for Lucy as soon as she got up from her nap today!

We could probably convince them to move to Texas if it wasn't 100 degrees from June to September!

I'm thankful for my family and a fun weekend!

Here I am. I've been in lurk mode.

Sounds like a fun weekend. What restaurant is that? It looks familiar.

Is that a photo of Katie standing by the flower pot? I didn't realize her hair was so curly! It's beautiful! Olivia's is crazy curly. We got her hair cut for the first time a few weeks ago and the stylist tried to blow dry it straight. I kept trying to tell her the curls will fight back.
Let's just say, the curls won.

Love all those cute pool pics! That pool will come in super handy this summer. We'll have to get y'all to go to the Splash Pad this summer. It's great! The kids run around in fun sprinklers while the mommies sit in the shade and talk. And my fave part is the mommies don't have to wear bathing suits cause you don't really get that wet. I LOVE that part! :)
