Since today is officially the beginning of summer in our household, it seems appropriate that I should post these photos from our adventures at the pool last weekend. Summer means swimming, right?!? As you can tell, we had a blast … Continue reading →
Our Girl Scout troop advanced from Daisies to Brownies on Tuesday night with a great bridging ceremony. We’ve got such a fun and unique group of girls and awesome leaders! We’re looking forward to another great year as Brownies!
Here’s a few photos I got from Tuesday’s fun. Unfortunately Garen had to stay home with the littles since they had a cold (or allergies really bad), so I had to do my best with his camera. Luckily he’s pretty talented at editing. It’s pretty obvious I need some pointers but they turned out better than I would have done with my iPhone probably.
Garen took these photos last week on this way through Hamilton from Marble Falls. I’ll admit, I love longhorns. To my fellow Aggies- sorry, not sorry. They’re beautiful animals and I love these photos Garen caught…..
We celebrated Easter with the Odom side of the family on the Saturday before Easter. The kids had a great time getting to play and explore the Blowin’ O, what we affectionately call Aunt Karen and Uncle Lee Roy’s place out by Aleman, TX, which is right outside of Hamilton. It was Granny and Grandad’s house first and they bought it while they were still living in Fort Worth back in the 70’s. They lived there still while I was still young and we had many, many Easter egg hunts in the yard and field.
Actually, we hunted Easter eggs until we were married. That was the rule. It may sound cheesy but a bunch of high school kids running around looking for the prize egg was pretty fun. Good memories. And I’m so glad my kids are getting to make the same memories with their cousins as well. It’s even more special that Grandad gets to watch his great grandkids enjoy the hunt now!
It’s hard to believe that it’s already almost Pinewood Derby time again for Boy Scouts. Last weekend Will and Garen headed down to Hamilton to work with YaYa (my dad) on this year’s model. Dad is the most detailed oriented man I know when it comes to this. It’s such a good example for Will. He also was an Eagle Scout so that makes it even more special.
Plus, it’s a great opportunity for them to use all of Dad’s toys in his shop. Garen caught some good photos of the two. I love how Will sticks his tongue out when he is focused on what he’s doing. Pretty cute!
