We haven’t written in a while so we’re posting a recap of the first couple months of summer. They have been busy!

We started the summer by enjoying some alone time for our Anniversary. The kids went to stay at Bella’s and we rented a luxury tent at an “eco-resort” called Sinja in Wimberley. We spent three days just relaxing.

In April, we celebrated Easter with the usual egg hunts. We spent time at my mom’s house as well as Courtney’s mom’s house.

Later in April, we celebrated Everett’s two-year birthday with a party. We can’t believe the time has gone by so fast. We reserved a place called Gorgeous Millie and had a Goodnight Gorilla themed birthday party. Everett received many great gifts, including at least three that had something to do with bubbles.

Next up, Courtney took the kids to the world-famous wiener dog races in Buda, Texas.

I spent one Saturday in late April riding a bike for a good cause. I rode in the 2012 Hill Country Ride for AIDS with a team from work. We rode 27 miles and had a blast.

In early May, we attended Courtney’s cousin’s wedding. Eisley and Everett’s cousin Finley was a flower girl.

Eisley’s school year ended in late May and we attended the end-of-year party. There were water slides galore!

After the party, we left for the first of several planned beach vacations. My mom rents a condo in Port Aransas every Memorial day. The kids love the beach! We had lots of wind and rough waves, but that didn’t deter the kids from diving right in.

The following week we threw a surprise birthday party for my dad. He turned 60!

In early June, the kids started summer school. They are both going one day per week this year.

In late June, we took our annual trip to the Frio river. My family rents a big house (two houses actually) and we all get together to swim, tube, drink beer and play cards. Lindsay and Mike joined us with their kids. One night we took the kids to the Garner State Park dance.

That’s it for now! We’ve got several more trips and exciting activities planned for the end of summer, so I’ll post Part II of our recap soon.


On March 23-25th we took a camping trip to Canyon of the Eagles on Lake Buchanan. We were joined by the Gaths – Mike, Lindsay, Finley and Bryson as well as Eric, Noelia and Preto.

We made smores, played cards, hiked the nature trails, attended a reptile show (the kids held snakes) and swam in the pool. The camping spots were great – very secluded and quiet. Definitely going to add this to our list of places to return to.


Finally getting around to posting some pictures from the holidays, 2012. For Christmas this year, Santa came and brought Eisley a new bike and a Leapfrog game. Everett got a basketball hoop and a Lego table.

We kept it pretty low-key for New Years. We took the kids down to Auditorium Shores and watched a few kid-friendly bands play, Joe McDermott and Big Don.
