Summer Fun

I thought my camera broke mid way through the summer, but it turns out I needed a new lens. Now I have my camera back and have lots of fun pictures of James Thomas!

We started the summer off with James Thomas' birthday. We had a little party in Houston in May so on June 4th we went to Nachogdoches to celebrate and watch Michael graduate from high school! It was a fun weekend.

Birthday breakfast for champions!

First picture of James Thomas as a 2 year old!

Birthday festivities included lots of swimming!

James Thomas' favorite thing to do in the pool is to be thrown high!

Who doesn't love a naked, baby bum.

We got to see Papa on James Thomas' birthday too! Very special time.

We have stayed busy having lots of fun this summer. We took many trips to the pool, had lots of play dates, road Bailey like a horse, and even road the train a few times. James Thomas was lucky enough to be with Luke and Sam on their first train ride. I am sure that was just the first of many for our special friends! Oh and did I forget to mention a few 2 year old tantrums??? We had those too!

We also celebrated my sister in law, whom is also a dear, college friend's 30th birthday! It was a great night to celebrate such an awesome person!

Fun day with Mimi and Papaw

My sweet parents have been dog sitting for James and me since July 4th weekend. We wanted to move, remodel, and get settled without worrying about Bailey and Daisy. This past week James Thomas and I drove down to JC to pick them up. My sweet mom rode back with us to Houston and then my dad came down after work to bring my mom back. They are so wonderful. Yesterday, we went to Memorial City Mall to ride the train, do a little shopping, and have lunch. I borrowed my mom's camera and got a few cute shots. My camera is finally fixed so I will have more pictures to share soon. Hopefully I can get some of the new house.

Waiting for the train!!

Choo Choo, All ABOARD!

My little conductor.

Our last family picture in front of our old house. (Daisy wouldn't cooperate.)

My first home! So so many memories.
