My life has become crazy, hetic and BUSY...Who knew that would happen when you have three kiddos!!??!? Luckily, summer is here so I have a little time to just play! I love summertime and time with the kids! We try to stay as busy as possible, but this summer, I have finally decided that Brayden's sleep schedule is more important than storytime (otherwise I was going to loose it from a lack of sleep!!). But, we have still managed to make one session of swim lessons, weekly gymnastics, some pool time and I make it to the gym at least 2 mornings during the week and try to make it a few on the weekend.
On top of all of the fun things with the kids, I have become the new president of the ZL ADPi house corporation... which in itself, doesn't sound that exciting... but it sure has kept me busy. We are competly remodeling the downstairs of the house, just finished the back deck, had two work weekends (posts to follow soon), and now have found more foundation issues. Again, doesn't sound too bad...but, I have met with a contractor, decorator or something of the sort basically three to five days a week since summer let out. That doesn't include the work weekends, phone calls, text messages or conference calls! Then add on emails that I get and you now have a fulltime job plus some!! Trust me, I am not complaining, just simply stating why this summer has not been as "busy" as last summer with the outings and such.
In the end, it will all be worth it! Our chapter will have an amazing house to GROW in and my girls will have a house to live in when they are ZL's in several years! Remembering that and all of the memories and friends I have through ADPi, has kept me involved and going through all the turmoil and chaos!  <><><> We live for each other <><>

Happy 70th birthday Gma!

We all surprise Gma by being at a small winery in Florence. We drove over, so did Milissa and Barney. Nana and Papa actually came too! She was the most surprised by Gilbert and his family being there too!! It was great to see everyone and let all the kids play while we celebrated 70years of this amazing woman!! 

Two generations... 
Three generations... 
Four generations (out of the 5 we have!!)
Happy birthday Gma- WE LOVE YOU!!
 Papa Chuck's girl!!

Stephen and Amanda's wedding

 Ok, so I think these posts are so out of order, but honestly, I can't remember... so here goes anyway!
David, Brayden and I left the girls with Grams and Papa B and headed to Gatesville. We drove up about 15 mins before the wedding started and then got to hang out for all of the important things in the reception (dance, food, cake, toasts... etc). Then the three of us loaded back and and drove home.
Congrats to Stephen and Amanda, we were so happy to be able to be a part of your special day!!!

KayLeigh really was here!!

She was just at soccer camp the whole time she was in CS! 

Happy Father's Day

We all met at Fish Daddy's to celebrate... four generations of love! 

Aunt Re's Surprise Party

Bray loves his aunt Re! 

Best friends at 3 and at 30 (ish for me!!)

Galveston Day #3- Palm Beach

Making our membership even more worth it... going back 2 days in a row! The whole thing was a blast... we started off on the lazy river (just fyi, Grams is not someone who likes to float the river!!) then headed to the splash pads and wave pool. 
Again, Kaylah was mad at the "mean things", so she wanted to spray the water guns instead. 
I had to ride down the big slide since they weren't big enough, but then we found the smaller kid side and the 500 gallon dump bucket!!
