Long Distance Make Over

I have teased and teased my poor Daddy about the God AWFUL color of his laundry room.  This color selection was not his finest moment.  ;) 
Last weekend, he was having new washer and dryer delivered and asked if he should go ahead and paint it.  I said YES without hesitation!  I am all about some yellow, but this does not go with his trim, cabinets, floor, etc.  And that border, lets not even go there.  HAHA! 

 So, he asked me to swing by Lowes and pick out a few colors.  I sent him several texts with options and he settled on the top one below. I think a blue would really go well with the tones of the rest of the stuff in there.

Now this my friends, is a pretty laundry room!  Gorgeous!

DiNicola Fun

The DiNicolas came to visit us last week from Austin.  We had such a great time visiting! 
I wish this picture wasn't blurry.  Ansley and Taryn insisted on sleeping on the floor together. 

Everyone piled on Mr. Jeff while he "naps"

Poor Taryn was pouting

Then she came back as happy as can be!

Boys and their cars

We hit up the pool for some fun in the sun. 

V brought me this awesome wreath that she MADE!  LOVE it!!

Fun with Grandma Nyna

We were so lucky to have Grandma Nyna stay with us this past weekend.  The kids absolutely LOVE when Grandma Nyna come.  Bless her heart, she goes NONE stop playing with the kids.  They eat it up!  We do too!! 
Hot Mess


We took the Stang out for a spin

I treated Grandma Nyna to a birthday pedicure.  Look at our pretty piggies

We went to the pool! 
She was also nice enough to let us get away for a night.  We stayed at the Omni in Ft. Worth.  It was a beautiful hotel.  We lounged by the pool and had a wonderful dinner at Bob's Steakhouse

A little pre-dinner "snack" at the wine bar

Jill and Cash's Visit

My friend Jill and her son Cash traveled from New Mexico to visit us this weekend.  We had the BEST time.  Griffin and Cash seriously picked right up where they left off almost a year ago.  Jill is such a dear friend and I am thankful for the fun weekend we had. 
We started the fun off at Lego Land in Grapevine Mills Mall.  We had not been before, so it was a treat for all.
Pure Excitement

Cash's face cracks me up!  He is after Griff

Jill and Cash on the Merlin ride

I was so lucky to get to ride this thang twice.  ;)

After Lego Land, we hit up Rain Forest Café for lunch.

These kids were in starvation mode.  We did not sit down for lunch until like 230.

Jill and I shared a much anticipated bottle of wine!  One of Ryan's customers gave him this very nice bottle of wine in New Mexico.   I have been saving it for Jill and I to share!

Griffin and Cash could have seriously played Mario all weekend long.  Two Peas in a Pod

Ryan was nice enough to baby sit on Saturday night so us gals could enjoy some margaritas, chips and salsa and girl time

We did bring prizes back from the local Nestle shop

On Sunday Morning, we went to the circus.  The Arnett's joined us in that fun!
Ansley and her BFF Sarah.  Clearly Ans is excited!

Griffin and Cash picked out light up swords as their prize (surprise, surprise)

And little Ansley a pink and purple Dragon (no surprise there either)

Proof of a successful trip, both boys feel asleep on the way to drop them off at the airport.

Impromptu Visit to Paw Paw's

The kids and I made an impromptu visit to my dads house in Saturday.  Ryan had a couple of "man" things going on, so I decided it was a good time to go for a visit.  

Paw Paw had them some new toys to play with.  

We went out to lunch then took a little trip to Lowes.

They got some build and grow banks to make with Paw Paw

Playing bowling with Aunt Britney

Little little fella was found in the closet.  ET phone home!

Dad made us a delicious dinner!

They ran in the sprinklers!
