Lake House Fun

During Spring Break James Thomas went on a little vacation to Mimi and Papaw's house. I don't have any pictures from his stay but he had a wonderful timing playing, being spoiled, and getting 100% attention 100% of the time. James and I also had a wonderful vacation at home. Great dinners out, a couples massage, the NCAA tournament, it was just the down time we needed.
Once I picked up James Thomas we packed the car and headed to the lake to end our spring break. We had quite an adventure as James Thomas went fishing for the very first time and actually caught a fish! He was so proud! Reese, his cousin was there, and they played played and played their little hearts out. Pitching washers, doing sidewalk chalk, more fishing, back and forth between baby dolls and trains, it was fun to watch them interact. We can not wait to get back up there and make many more memories.

We got to top the wonderful week off with dinner at Clay's. If you live in Houston this is the place to go with the kids. At first James Thomas would not get the courage up to ride the real horse so he spent much of his time on the pretend one. After watching everyone else go, he was able to muster up the courage and go for it! We were very proud of him for riding the pony!
When James and I got married and joined Second Baptist Church we were blessed to be in a small group with some amazing couples. 7+ years later we are all still great friends and our kids love to get together. We always enjoy our time with these awesome families! We can't wait to get together again soon!

We have had lots of RODEO fun at our house. We were planning to go down and enjoy the rodeo festivities the first weekend but during Chili cook off they don't have lots for the little kids. We decided to head to the zoo instead. We had a wonderful morning visiting the animals, riding the carousel multiple times and a nice train ride. The zoo was empty and I heard one of the zoo keepers say that during rodeo season it is always dead. So, if your looking for something fun to do this month, head down to the zoo.

The next week I was lucky enough to go to the rodeo and see Lady Antebellum in concert with girlfriends. It was a nice treat! That Saturday we took James Thomas and he absolutely loved it. We saw lots of animals, did rides, and enjoyed some fried fair food! The mutton busting and camel rides were the biggest hits! I know this will become a wonderful tradition that James Thomas will love more and more as he gets older.
