Griffin's First Field Trip

Griffin had his first field trip yesterday to the Dallas Arboretum.  I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a chaperone.  We had a great time, despite the rain and 50 degree temps. 
Us on the big cheese! Not quite like I remember it.  ;)



 The Arboretum hosted a short lesson on plants and then we were free to explore.

Need lots of sun

My favorite little dude ever!  I am so lucky to be able to do these things with him!

My group!  Bella, Griffin, Hayden and Lily. 


Sweet Lily feel asleep on Griffin's shoulder on the ride home.  Melt my heart!

Medieval Times


We had to take Grandma Nyna somewhere fun while she was in town, so we decided on Medieval Times.  We went a year or two ago and the kids have been begging to go back.  


Of course, we had to do a little photo session before we left. 




Grandma Nyna got suckered into buying over priced light up thingys.  ;)

Go Black and White Knight!!



Our knight tossed sissy a flower.  She was SO excited

Unfortunately, our knight did not win, but it was fun nonetheless!
Sweet Sadie had to wear the crown when we returned.  ;)

Powerseries Tennis

Ryan and I went on a date while Nyna was here.  We went to dinner and watched tennis!  I had given Ryan tickets to the Powerseries Tennis match for his birthday.  It is 4 past professional tennis players playing each other.  Andy Roddick, John McEnroe, Jim Courior and Mark Philippoussis.  It was super fun!  I got the tickets through Living Social and OMG, we were in the VERY first row.  I definitely got my $$ worth. 
Us and Andy ;)

Us on the Jumbo Tron!!  We were on there 3 times!  The second time I was rushing to get my phone to take our picture and then we were gone, but the sweet camera man came back and let me get the pic!

Grandma Nyna Fun!

We had such a wonderful time visiting with Grandma Nyna this weekend!  She just plays and plays with the kids!
Working hard on a puzzle

A little basketball

Ansley decided to collect worms!  Eww!

We found a turtle at the playground and decided to put in the reservoir so hopefully he could find his friends



LOVE these pics of Mama and Son!!

Thursday Funday

Ansley had a super fun Thursday last week!  Not only did Grandma Nyna come to town, she had her kindergarten screening AND her very first sleep over!! 
Sophia and Ansley...watch out Kinder, here they come!!
 Ansley's friend Kennan spent the night with us that evening.  Her mom was having her tubes tied, so it was easier for everyone to have her spend the night and go to school with us the next day (Griff spent the night at their house when Ansley had her eye surgery).  We LOVED having her.  The girls had the best time!!  Everyone did great.  I did have to tell them to go to sleep a couple times, they were giggling and chatting!  SO precious!! 

Good morning girls!

It happened to be picture day at school Friday, so I got to get both girls all fancied up! 

Sweet friends!!
