Perot Museum

On Sunday, we decided to check out the new Perot Museum in Dallas.  Our neighbors, the Arnetts, joined us and we had a great time. 
 
Ready to learn some cool stuff

The children's portion of the museum was definitely their favorite. 



Ansley and Sarah camping, more like glam-ping.  ;)

Griffin's 5 year well check

Griffin had his 5 year well check on Friday and his stats are as follows:

Height: 41.25 inches (10-25 percentile)
Weight: 44.5 (75 percentile)

It seems like he MAY be, dare I say it, evening out a little.  He used to be under 10th for height and 95ish for weight.  He is the cutest thing and we LOVE him!!!!

We also had him tested again for his egg allergy (that is what the blue bandage is for in the above picture).  We should get the results in a few days.  

He is seriously such an awesome kid.  He is into all things Star Wars now.  He decided to pick out these Darth Vader shoes with some of his birthday money.  He is SO proud of them.

Here is what they do!

Needless to say, she may never be driving an actual car...ever! 


Mini air hockey was also super fun




He had this first attempt at the batting cages too. 

His dinner choice, Chickfila.  He is his mama's boy.

Complete with a special milkshake for the birthday boy (and his sister)


Happy Birthday Buddy!!  We love you!

Happy 5th Birthday Griffin!

Today marks Griffins 5th birthday.  The five years of his life have been the very best of mine.  He is just an amazing boy.  We are so lucky to be his parents.  

Griffin has summer camp today, so thanks to a Pinterest idea.  I wrapped his lunch up. He is going to be so surprised!







Ansley picked out a Despicable Me fart gun for her gift to him.  

He got a real light up and sound light saber

So excited to go to school on his bday.  I told him this will not likely happen again.  


We have something fun planned for after school and then his restaurant choice for dinner.  More on that later.....

Summer Camp

The kids had their first day of summer camp yesterday.  It is held at Griffin's school and the theme is Christmas in July.  So, this was Ansley's very first time at school.  She was SO excited, girl did not even look back when I dropped her off.  I may or may not have shed a tear in the parking lot.
