Celebrating summer and 9 years...

If you know me...this anniversary was a big one as nine is my FAVORITE number. We went to Lake Livingston for one night and had a great time!!!

After we got the camper set up, we went straight for a swim!

We got a GREAT campsite with a great view of the lake. We went for a walk after dinner to pick up sticks...even the dogs were in the picture!!

We roasted marshmallows by the fire before the kids went to bed...

The next day we went fishing first thing in the morning. As you can see all was well, until...

This picture is where all the trouble began. You can see Mr. C was about to cast and I was going to shoot a video. What you can' t see in the picture is that Glacier was interested in the worm on the hook on the end of C's line...

I didn't get a picture of the fish hook hanging out of the side Glacier's mouth, but AM and I made a short trip with Gla Gla to the local vet to have the hook removed. By all accounts, we were VERY VERY lucky!! We even went to the pool in the afternoon to finish up trip. Then, had to race back to the camper to close it up before it started raining... we might have a touch of bad luck with our camping:) Did I mention that the toilet over flowed on out last trip?

And she grows up and grows up...

Our good friend S is be a November...Gasp! Such a big deal as I was just recalling the first time I met her was when she was in 7th grade and I was one of her 4 favorite coaches. She has since graduated from college and is living and working in Fort Worth like a real adult. She used to be this cute, lanky, complaining little girl and now she is all grown up...she still complains thought...JOKES!! We were lucky enough to celebrate with a little bachelorette party this past weekend. All her favs were there!!!

We started with a little porch time on Friday after dinner...

Then we headed to the lake...Thank God for in-laws with lake houses!! :) Here I am putting on her veil. We told her if it ever came off she would have to take a shot...
T-bone even made the trek with her 4 week old angel!!!
We pretty much hung out at the lake all day and evening. I got sooooo sunburned :( The time was amazing. We all just talked and talked and talked until 12pm...that is really late for us now!

The next morning we just talked and talked and talked for another couple hours.

I LOVED catching up with my old friends. There was a time when we would see each other EVERY DAY...even weekends. I miss those times, but am so glad that we are able to get together and just pick back up!! Can't wait for the wedding...

What?! These are my regular glasses?

AC: What are those?

AC: Let me try those!!

So, C was having some trouble when he was tired with a "lazy eye" or "going cross-eyed" as we called it. I noticed it at night sometimes at dinner for a couple months, but B just figured he took after his uncle. One Monday, our babysitter noticed it as well. I made an appointment for the next day. Turns out, our boy can't see so good:( He has a pretty thick lens, but they say after a couple months, the problem might correct itself...we'll see.

We think they are so fitting for him. They have helped TREMENDOUSLY already!!!

Blueberry picking

They say that the cold winter and long spring have produced one of the best blueberry harvest!! We got there nice and early. Luckily the weather cooperated and we had cloud cover, but no rain.

First, stop... EVERYONE had to go potty!

These 3 were GREAT at staying on task...

The younger two...not so much. They ate and drank and were merry :)

C is very focused on getting the most blueberries..

AM and her buddy are so cute holding hands:)

We ended up with 4.19 lbs! I was very excited. It would have been more if AM didn't eat so much :)
