July 9

July 9 A friend of mine asked me to take some pictures of her daughter, so of course while I was there, I took some pics of my kids. Allie had a hard time because EK had a bunch of scarves and hats that she wanted to wear. EK is at that age where germs are a big deal and she didn't want to share, so Allie threw fits. Luckily, they were cute fits. Lance is a trooper. He helped lug the bags around, never complaining. All of this, in 104 degree temps! They were well rewarded afterwards with Braums ice cream.

July 4

4th of July We were true McKinney-ites today. We went to the parade and car show downtown, then had lunch at Spoon's Cafe for the first time. It was quite yummy! After that, we came home and slept for a couple of hours. Then it was off to the soccer fields for Red, White and Boom. There were tons of booths with free stuff - even a church that had a booth set up to make tie die t-shirts. The kids LOVED that. There were a bunch of bounce houses and face painting and games. We ate dinner, played frisbee and sat on our blanket and watched fireworks. I just love living in such a great community.

July 1st and 2nd

July 1 Another trip to the sprinkler park!

July 2 We had a play date at the mall today. Of course the kids can't go to the food court without riding the carousel.

June 28

June 28 A quick trip to the Sno Cone Lady in Frisco. So yummy, even I like them. Of course who wouldn't like Wedding Cake sno cones???

June 26

June 26 We very spontaneously decided to go to the Celina Balloon Festival. The kids had a great time although they were disappointed when we wouldn't buy tickets for the rides or get them any glow stick things. Why do you have to buy stuff to have a good time??? Next time, we will go a little more prepared and bring blankets and drinks. Lots of fun! Lots of balloons.

June 19-25

Oh my goodness!! I get three days in a row and then miss for a month. Oh well, what cha gonna do???
Jeff and I got new phones a few days ago. It is kind of cool to whip it out and take pics of the kids. Not great quality, but that is OK. This pic was taken at Durkin's Pizza, one of our favorite pizza shops in McKinney. Lance even eats the crust - which never happens!
June 20 This is a picture of Jeff taking a picture of me. LOL Remember how I said we got new phones. Yep, still having fun with them!
June 21 Father's Day! Love this pic of the kids and Jeff. Can't you just see the love they all have for each other. So sweet!
June 22 Speaking of sweet. Love this. There is nothing better than your child climbing up in your arms and falling asleep. She knows she is in good hands.
June 24 We spend a lot of time at either the pool or the sprinkler park. The kids love the water and have a great time when we go.
June 25 Allie helping me "clean" the bowl after making brownies for VBS. She ended up covered in chocolate.
