Girl Cousins!

When we went to Texas we had a girls night out. Eventhough Alyssa was sick we managed to get some great pictures! She looks so much like Brett and Trent in these.

I finally took the kids to see Toy Story 3 this weekend. Wow! That movie hit me hard. It made me realize how fast life is moving. As I sat on the last row between my two children, I cried and cried. Looking over at my ten (soon to be eleven) year old......I couldn't control the tears. I remember when Trent was little....Toy Story was his favorite. He had all the characters and carried Woody and Buzz around for years. It's hard to believe that 10 years have passed and he is now beginning 5th grade.

Trip to Texas

I took the kids out to Texas to visit with their cousin's.  We had a great time. I was so glad that Alyssa could spend time with "the girls"
I couldn't believe how great the flights were. We had no problem getting on our fights either time.
The Monday we just hung around the house and let the girls play on the slip-n-slide. (The boys were too old they said)

Tuesday we took them to their neighborhood Beach Club. It was awesome. They played in the sand and swam all day.

Trent and Alyssa. I can't believe how much they look alike here.

Wednesday we spend the entire day at the Waterpark.
This slide below was alittle scary. But of course Alyssa just had to ride. It. Notice the guy in the yellow tube. with his arms crossed! The person riding this slide is enclosed in the tube, then the floor completely drops out from underneath you (like FreeFall). Alyssa's face was priceless at the end of the slide. Trent at first didn't want to ride it again... but Alyssa did. (not to be showed up... he did ride it again)

Our last night there we decided to do a "girls night" while the boys went to a Texas Rangers game.
Poor Alyssa.... I don't know if it was the ride, water or what but she got sick. (all in the car on the way to the mall) So we turned the car around and had to bathe/change her. She was fine after "releasing" her self. We had the girls picture made and went to Build A Bear.

We enjoyed our nice little trip to McKinney, Texas!
