Soon after we got back from our vacation to Galveston, we headed to Christoval to see Jennifer, Waleed and Maren. The kids had so much fun playing in the wading pool and feeding the cows. It's always so nice to see family.

For our first vacation as a family of 4, we traveled to Galveston to spend some time at the beach. It just so happened that it was the first time we saw rain in ages as this year has been the hottest on record and we are in a devastating drought. We tried to send the rain on to Austin but of course it would not travel so far.
While in Galveston, we spent quite a bit of time at Moody Gardens, enjoying the IMAX theater, the Pyramids and the water park. It was so nice that Ky and Daddy could spend time in the water while Cage and I could stroll around the pyramids in the AC.
As well as spending time at Moody Gardens we took a trip on the ferry to Bolivar Peninsula, dined at Landry's on the beach, and toured some museums. It was such a wonderful time!

For my first solo trip with the kids, I took them to San Antonio so Cage could meet his Great Granny Miller. It was just a short trip but I have to say I did okay. Of course, MelMel & Papa met us in town so we could eat at Luby's, a tradition my PaPa started when I was young.
For Kylie's 5th Birthday, she had a party at Snip It's Salon in Austin with her friends Kaylee, Alana, Tess, Brooklyn & Ava. She was such as cutie as she picked out and tried on outfits with her friends, had her make-up, hair and nails done and walked the red carpet. Too cute!

I absolutely love going out to the floating restaurant on Lake Travis to eat. I gues it's the atmosphere. Although it's quite a long drive just for lunch, we go about once a year. This was Cage's first trip... Ky of course loves to feed the ginormous fish!

For Ky's second year of Dance, she participated in the Hip Hop, Bop & Tumble class at Dance Xplosion! She did such a wonderful job dancing to Shrek's "I'm a Believer." We were so proud as she marched on stage with her class and for the second year in a row showed no fear!!! You go girl!
