A Look Back: April 2017

April was an insanely busy month for us.  Probably as busy as the month before our wedding and we bought our first home & moved 3 weeks before.  Word to the wise, don't do that. :)

We were visiting with my Dad & Mary one afternoon and I snapped these pictures of my dad & Jack wrestling.  My dad is such a kid at heart & these two have such a special bond.  It's fun to see them interact and play together.

I began to realize I somehow don't have as many pictures on my phone of Jack as I once did.  Blame it on the combination of a few things but, as I tried one evening at home, in the car & then back home... this is what I got.  He is such a ham and is in that fun stage of doing the opposite of what you ask him to do.  #2yearold

In the middle of packing we took a road trip to Corpus Christi for Easter.

For Administrative Professionals Day, the girls in my office treated me to beautiful flowers and a gift card to the nail salon.  Then along with the other assistants from other offices, we were treated to lunch at Cheesecake Factory and shoe shopping by our local admin.  It was very unexpected on my part & such a treat to have such a fun day!

We ended the month by packing and packing... and celebrating one of my longest friends birthdays and welcomed her into the 30's club!  We enjoyed dinner at Vintage Car Museum and it did not disappoint!

Quickly... on to May!

A Look Back: March 2017

March was a super fun month filled with a lot of celebrating!  We kicked off the month by celebrating my best friend Erin's 30th birthday!  We had dinner downtown Ft. Worth at Cantina Laredo & then shimmied over to Studio 80 where we danced the night away (well... until 11:45 for us to get home for the sitter) to 80's music.  It was SO much fun and the perfect way to celebrate my super fabulous friend!

The following weekend we celebrated my Dad and Mary getting married!  Their love story is so sweet and I"m so glad the Lord worked in each of their hearts and brought them back together.  We are blessed to have Mary officially be a part of our family!  My mom's two sisters even came to town to celebrate with us - they consider my dad like a 3rd brother.  So, it was really nice to get to visit with them a little extra that weekend and we all had the best time at the wedding.  Especially Jack as He danced his little booty off all night & was the talk of the reception.

That same weekend we also began house hunting!  (More on that later!)  But, not before fueling up at iHop with funny flapjacks!

Our 3rd celebration was for our nephew's 8th birthday.  They live about an hour from us so, we don't get to see them often but, no matter how long it's been Jack and his cousins always pick right back up.  I'm so glad that he has Chase & Ty as cousins because they adore him just about as much as he adores them.  It truly is the cutest, sweetest thing to witness!

We could't escape March without someone coming down with some sort of sickness.  Poor Jack got a viral infection the last week of March.  Thankfully, it didn't last too long but, still never fun seeing your little babe sick.  All in all, March was a great month!

Easter 2017

Despite the crazy season of life we are in right now, we still decided to pack our bags & go South for Easter weekend.  I'm so glad we did because Matt & I both agreed that overall it was a really great weekend.

Friday morning we planned to leave by 8, figured it would actually be 10 & ended up leaving at 9 - win in our book!  Jack did great on the 6 hour car ride, yelling at the big trucks, singing & watching movies. Thank goodness for the DVD player!!

We arrived at my aunt's house Friday afternoon & a little later went to my other aunt's house to visit & see her baby rabbits. She has a mini farm at her house so, it was fun for the little kids to see the animals.  I didn't think Jack would do well holding the rabbit on his own so I helped the first time. And then he wanted to hold it on his own after seeing his older cousins hold the bunny. Such a big boy!  He loved the bunny & didn't want to let go!



Saturday was our big gathering with family & Easter egg hunt.  Jack was more interested in riding bikes (he also discovered these while there) & breaking open the cascarones (confetti eggs) than actually hunting Easter eggs. So, maybe next year he'll be interested.



We also let the kiddos have their Easter baskets on Saturday since Sunday would be so busy. Again, Jack cared mostly about his new ball & bubbles than anything else. But, I know he'll get great use out of everything else he received as well!


On Sunday we packed our bags, went to church for Easter service & witnesses my cousin's little boy be baptized. After church we headed back North for home.

Hope you each had a wonderful Easter as well!
