March 20 Last day of Spring Break and family in town! We went to a new park in Frisco with the mom's club. Lance and Allie had a great time playing with everyone. They thought it was the coolest park ever. It was HUGE and all wood. Their favorite was the sand box. They had so much fun burying each other. At least until another kid accidentally threw a bunch of sand up Allie's nose. Then it was time to go! We picked up Jeff for lunch and went home to wait on Gapga and Juju. While we waited, we invited one of Lance's friends over and the boys (along with another neighbor boy - all about 7) played together outside. They were so good, but I got a good picture of my summer and I am in for a lot of sweaty boy!! They both left when Gapga and Juju got to the house and then we went to dinner with them and Jeff's sister and her family. We had a great time and the kids loved seeing each other.
March 21 One of the reason's family was in town was to go to a wedding of a cousin. They are so cute and the wedding was very "them". This is how they drove off.
March 22 The other reason the family was in town was for the joint family birthday party for the kids. We decided that instead of having two family parties two months apart, we would have one in the middle of the two. All the grandparents made it, along with Jeff's sister and her family, and our neighbors from OKC who have a little girl Lance's age. It was great to have everyone here. Hope it happens more often!!
Oh, I forgot to answer bentonflocke's question about the soccer picture on March 7. All I did was duplicate the layer, applied a big gaussian blur (like 50) and then used a soft brush to erase the parts I wanted kept in focus. I did it mainly because I don't want to post pics of people I don't have permission to post pics of. Although it does give it a cool effect!
