Fall Yall

We have had some beautiful Fall weather lately and we have been taking advantage of it. Jilly and Reed had a great time in the sand box. She loves to play with him and he loves to torture (I mean play with her). (Notice sand all over her).

She is standing guard here in her scary pomapoo look.

So on Reed's actual birthday we drove 10 hours in the car to Chicago, which is just what he wanted for his big day. We had a wonderful trip. I was very impressed by the city. Here are lots of pics of our vacay.

Out of the blog loop! Sorry

Reed and his buddy A playing on the slip and slide. We went to A's house for a cook out and swim on the 4th, but ended in no swim and thunderstorms. But everyone still had a good time.

Mommy and Reed watching the big band play at the park before fireworks.

Daddy made Reed a very cool race car cake for his big day. It was cool looking and even cooler tasting.

Mommy and Daddy bought Reed this fab tractor. His whole world is tractors and trains.

So we have been out of the blog loop due to a crazy summer here so I am going to back it on up and first show you Reed's actual 3rd birthday and 4th of July.

Swimming Lessons

Reed has started swimming lessons. We go once a week for the months of June and July. His coach his amazing. Reed has been doing really well. This past week he put his whole face under. He is working hard on kicking, scooping, and blowing bubbles. After lessons we hit the outdoor pool for some fun and sun.

Texas Trip

So, we headed to TX a week or so again. We had lots of fun seeing family and friends. Nick and I even spent some time alone. We drove on Thursday to Dallas to see Nicks' sister Sandy and hubby Josh and sweet cousin Mac and new cousin Gus. Sorry no pics of Gus. I guess when I had my hands on him I was not even thinking about pics, bc he was so super yummy.
We went to diner at a fun place that had a sprinkler park. Reed ran and ran around the water. To say the least he did not want to stop to eat.

On Friday we took the boys to the park, where they had dumped some huge piles of mulch. Tractor loving Reed was super glad he had a tractor to help spread it. Mac even got in the spirit, to bad we only had one tractor to share.
On Friday night we stayed with our friends Matt, Yvette , and Abigail. For some reason I never got my camera out. But Yvette made yummy dinner, then us ladies went to see a late movie after the kids where in bed. Who knows what the daddy's did??

On Sat. morning we drove down to New Braunfels TX to meet my mom, dad, brother and his girlfriend for a couple of fun days at Schilterbahn. It was Reed's first water experience of the summer.

My dad, Nick, and Lauren swung on this crazy 4 story high swing thing. My stomach hurt watching. They are crazy!

On Sunday afternoon my mom and dad took Reed back to College Station with them. Nick and I checked into a bed and breakfast. We floated the Gaudalupe river, ate yummy food, and visited historic Gruene, TX.

On Tuesday we headed to College Station to see our boy and spend a couple more days with my fam. They had a yummy fish fry with fish that my dad and Nick caught.

On Thursday morning Reed got to go fishing for the first time. Pop pop caught one, but Reed quickly told him to put it back.

It was a great trip. Thanks to all the family and friends that let us stay and put up with us. We love you all.
