Free Time

We found ourselves with some unexpected free time in The Woodlands last weekend. We decided to take advantage of it and strolled along the waterway and streets. Dustin was being a camera-hog, which I enjoyed! So I was actually in a picture with G, Yeahh!

I need to give him the camera more often because he has some hidden talent...





Let me know if you have any technical problems with the larger images.

Favorite Thing That Involves a Fork

One of Gavin's favorite things to do is eat. He especially loves berries, and green beans.
Right now he is learning to master the fork... He has a ways to go...

If You Give a Boy a Hose

Gavin has never been shy around water. This is a very good thing as we are already over 90 degrees. I am sure he will be spending much of his summer in or near water. Here he is having fun with a garden hose...
This expression is inherited from his Mom...

Texas Wildflowers

Every year, around the end of March, the wildflowers come out in all their glory here in Texas. These pictures are from last month, but I figured ya'll would want to see some G-pics...

My Mom

Now that I am a Mom, Mother's Day, of course has whole new meaning. What is there on earth more honorable, noble, or fufilling than being a Mom? I don't think it can get better than is!
So with that, I just want to tell my Mom thanks. Thanks for giving up so much, for being there when we were sick, cranky, sad, or troubled. Growing up, there was never a time that I questioned being loved. I always knew you loved me, even when I got my much needed spankings or reprimands (and thank you for those too).

My Mom, Sandy, right around her first Mother's Day. Isn't she just beautiful!!

My Mom, holding my big brother and sitting next to my Grandma, is pregnant with me in this picture. With Mom, us kids always came first. I can't think that their was a woman crafted better to be my Mother.

Crazy that in this picture, my Mom is younger than I am now, and I am still on my first child. I am not sure how she managed raising us succesfully when she was so young herself.

My Mom at the birth of Gavin. She was such a great help, and I was so happy that she could be there to support and encourage me.

Mom, I just want to thank you for giving so much of yourself in raising us kids. I am truly blessed to call you my Mom and you are a gem and a delight to me! I know that you prayed without ceasing while we made poor decisions, and suffered the consequences. I know that you loved us and love us still, no matter what silly thing we do! Thanks so much for being my Mom and I hope that I can be as loving, generous, and caring to my own children.
Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Happy Birthday, Brother

My brother turns 33 today. I would crack some old-man jokes, but there is not too great of an age difference between us.

Here he is 30-some years ago, he looks an awful lot like another cute little baby boy I know.

We didn't always get along growing up, he wanted to make our Barbies and Little Ponies do things like fart, belch, and fight. I think it may have been rough for him to be the middle child and only boy.
He turned out pretty good, and although I don't see him near as often as I like, I do like him more each time I get to see him:)
I can't wait for him to come down and visit Texas with his sweet family.
Love ya Wade, and Happy Birthday.
