I was lucky enough to be picked as a chaperone for Aislyn's Kindergarten Field trip to the Dallas Arboretum.  I use the word "lucky", because I have been trying to be a chaperone for all my kids field trips for years and this was the first one I was able to go on.  We live in the best area and there are so many parents that want to chaperone that they literally have to draw your name out of a hat.

Anyway, I finally got to go with these lovelies.

These two have been together for years.
We started with preschool at 3 and then had the same Kindergarten teacher and SPOILER ALERT...even have the same teacher for 1st Grade.
We do swim lessons together every summer as well. 

Of course there were other little ones with us in our group.

What a fun filled day!


It already looks like fun, doesn't it?
This year we went to Scott and Erin's for some Easter Fun. 

Cousin Love.




A couple of silly clowns.


On to the hunt!
I love how her hair is swinging in this picture.

Happy Looking.

Happy Finding.

These were a fun way to end the day.

Adorable, right?
This clip makes me happy every time I see it.

Of course, this Little Angel makes me feel the same way. 

We have been so spoiled!  Dain's job with EPSN has allowed us to go to Disney on Ice for the past several years.  We will miss it.  Especially when we get to have the Suite to ourselves.

Dade was a good sport.  There were a few too many Princesses for him.

This little one is happy to be anywhere he can play.

Not sure when we will get a picture like this again...hopefully soon.


Belize here we come!
This is Dain and I waiting in line to check in at 1:00 in the morning.

There was an oil spill in the gulf that was preventing ships from coming in and going out.
After two days waiting on the ship in Galveston we got off the boat and came home because....

we didn't want to miss this.
Aislyn sang in her PTA Concert.

Friends always make things more fun.

You are beautiful.  Look at that infectious smile!

After a few years of dance, Aislyn decided she wanted to try soccer.
So, here is her soccer debut.

She caught on very quickly.

And with Dad as coach it made it even more fun.

Aren't these girls adorable?

Even in the cold.

The end of season party was at the park and has been every season since.

I hope these friendships can last a lifetime.

Especially this one. 

I already have dreams of these two and how adorable their little blonde haired beauties would be.

Aislyn...Go Luck Chrams!!!!!

A few lucky nights we get to hear the owls that live in our back yard trees.  This night Dain was still up with the boys and they got a chance to hear their calls as well.

This year marker Dade's First Pinewood Derby.  That's his car there.  He won the Duck Dynasty Award.

The anticipation of waiting for the times/scores was almost too much. 

5th Place.  Not bad for his (and our) for time.  He did great and thanks Daddy for helping.

In the fall of 2013, Dain and I went to Quebec.  We had an amazing time.  One of the highlights was watching glass blowers at work.  When I found a deal for a glass blowing opportunity in Dallas I couldn't wait to take Dain on this date. 

We each got to pick out what we wanted to make.  We both picked vases, but with different shapes.

Then we chose our colors and off we went to the fires.

Then, while the glass is still hot we got the blow out the middle.  Amazing.
(Dain took pictures of me on his phone, but I don't have them to put on the blog)

Takes more air then you might think. 

During this part he is creating a flat bottom for the base.
The only different thing for me was that I got to use these flat mallet things to squeeze the sides flat.  It sparked when I did it. AWESOME.
