Birthday Party!

The twins decided to celebrate their birthday party at the Chirstus Schumpert gym this year.  They set up a super fun obstacle course.  The twins had a blast playing with their buddies and eating cake and ice cream.

FIVE Years Old!!

The twins turned FIVE on the 13th!!  It was a Wednesday, so they decided to skip VBS for the day and have some fun with Mom.  When they woke up, they were greeted with a Happy Birthday banner and balloons hanging down the stairs, which they thought was just so much fun.  We let them open a couple presents from Mom and Dad, then we headed out to get donuts.  On our ride to the donut shop, we spotted a few hot air balloons - they of course "knew" this was for their birthday!  We spent the morning jumping at Air-U.  After lunch, they each grabbed a friend and we headed to the pool.  When Dad got home from work, we had a special birthday dinner.  They both said it was their best birthday ever.

Fourth of July Weekend

We had jam packed Fourth of July Weekend.  We started off by heading to New Orleans Friday night.  We stopped in Baton Rouge so Drew could work and we could see Mike the Tiger and run off some energy at the parade grounds. Saturday, Grandma took the twins to the New Orleans Children's' Museum then we went to my cousin Katie's wedding.  It was so much fun watching the twins cut a rug out on the dance floor.  Katie made a beautiful bride and Emily was awe struck by the the whole affair.  Sunday, we got up bright and early to head back to Shreveport in time for the fireworks celebration at East Ridge.  On Monday the actual Fourth of July, we spent most the day at the pool and hanging out with friends.  The whole weekend was a blast!

Happy Father's Day

We spent Father's Day weekend spoiling the Dad in our house!!  He played golf, had breakfast in bed, a dance party and lunch with family.  As an added bonus, we had an adult night because the twins went to Camp Leesville sponsored by Mimi and Pops!

Future Golf Pros

Now that the twins are getting older, we have been able to include them in some of OUR hobbies.  Drew is a great golfer.  I still consider myself to be a beginner.  Last week, we took the twins out on the course with us.  They only lasted four holes, but I felt pretty good about that for their first time.  Drew was very patient with all of us and even managed to give the twins a few pointers.

Nap with Dad

Emily said "Mom!!  I think this is what Grandma likes!"

This is Drew after a concert buying me donuts at a walk-up in Dallas

Emily wanted to see the bar menu at Superior...what she didn't know was that Maddie had already gotten the bartender's attention and said "I will take a Dr. Pepper and my cousin will have a milk."  The bartender got those drinks out abnormally fast!

He loves Legos

Bogie decided to go for a swim at Norton

We met Drew Brees!!!  He walked up to our table at Walk Ons and was trying to talk to the twins....they were not impressed.

Don't breathe....they are playing nicely together
