Last week we jumped at the chance to spend the night at Justin's house! What a treat for the boys to get some good rough housin' in! We had a few things to do "in town" Wednesday night and Thursday morning so it made sense to spend the night at the Michaelis's. Shannon and I got the boys rolling and left the rest for Derek. Mr. Derek NAILED IT! He was just what the boys needed at the just the right time. They were missing Daddy something bad. Mr. D was a quick fix. It really is amazing what a little 6'7" testosterone can do for 2 little boys. I wish I had a picture of all of them! Derek put all 3 boys to bed without a prob while Shannon and I enjoyed a night out with my Houston girls.
Patio Seating at Aunt Shani's for dinner
Bathtime with cool bath paints
Dinner with my favorite Houston people!!
I miss these girls so much! Hopefully one day I'll just pop right back to Houston and get them back in my everyday life!
Katie, Me, Kim
Jenn, Tracy, Shannon
JT is obviously the only one following directions to say "cheese"
...banana and all!
Here's the start of the B's acting like wild hyenas for photos! Love it!
Don't worry about the lack of carseats. All's well that ends well, right :)
Firehouse Subs...usually fun if you're children aren't CRAZY!
After lunch we headed to a fun bowling playdate. Bowling with young ones can be fun. Just be aware that they have no patience for waiting their turn and no clue the damage that could be done with that ball.
This dude can bowl and he loves it.
Check out these cuties. They're kinda like our cousins. Their daddy and Anna Lou's daddy are brothers. (how cute are these little bowling shoes!!!)
I love this picture of them. Look at the hair on these sisters. One of each!
The little ones, Lily and Emery are twins.
They're just 18 mo younger than Aubrey their older sister.
Nice form Mrs. Katie and baby Lissie
Sliding rather than bowling
This was a really cool bowling tool. Its for handicap children but is just as helpful for toddlers! Ask for it next time you're bowling with little ones!
Aunt Shani and JT
Hyenas and Mommy!
I was so so thankful to see these sweet friends, Jill and little Ethan. I met Jill as a newly-wed and have treasured her faithful friendship for years! A Houston visit wouldn't be the same without seeing her!
