Air Show

Last weekend Chris and I took the kids to the Air Show in town. There were so many fun things to see and the kids really enjoyed all the planes and helicopters and military aircraft. Since Troy's birthday is in a few weeks I decided to take him on his first airplane ride. He was so excited!! When it was finally our turn to go up I think I was more scared than he was! As we taxied out we had to wait a bit and he kept asking "are we up yet, are we up yet?" Once we were in the sky his eyes were so big and just taking it all in. He would look out his window and then my window and then back to his window again. The pilot tipped the plane a few times to show us something or to turn and as I am grabbing the side of the plane to hold on, Troy says, "cool" and when asked what his favorite part was, he will say the tipping. As we landed, he immediately asked if we could go again. I just might have a future pilot on my hands. It was an unforgettable memory that I know I will treasure forever.

Chris is a great dancer. Not only did I get a degree from Tech, but that is also where I learned to two step and it is so nice to enjoy that with Chris. Dancing has quickly become something that we try to do whenever we have some free time without the kids because we have so much fun together. There is definitely an art to country dancing. It's imperative for the man to know how to lead and feel the beat of the music and know the correct steps, but there is also something so special about connecting with someone you care about while dancing together. Just one more reason why...My Boyfriend Rocks!!

Amber's Birthday

Over the weekend we all went to my sister's birthday party. She turned 27, which seems almost impossible since I still see her as a little girl!! We had a great time with all the family and her friends. The theme was Fiesta and mom went all out on the appetizers and food and drinks and cake. After she opened all her gifts we changed clothes and headed out dancing. I don't think me and Blake and Amber have ever all gone out together, so that was a first, but we had blast.

Rainy Day

It was estimated that we received 15 inches of rain over about two days last week and the flooding was so bad in a lot of areas that the schools ended up closing for the day, but when it rains that much you can be sure of one thing...great PUDDLES!!!

Over Labor Day weekend Chris took me to where he grew up in Minden, Louisiana. I was able to meet his dad and step mom, step sisters, aunt, uncle and cousins. Louisiana was so pretty and his family is very laid back so it was nice to just relax. He showed me Shreveport and all the casinos, the house he grew up in and schools he attended, and we had a bbq at his aunt and uncle's where he took me on the four wheeler to see all his family's property. Cade and Caitlyn really enjoyed playing with their cousins. For some reason Cade was not into pictures this weekend, but he really was there!! But out of everything I saw over the weekend I think the drive thru margarita joint was the most bizarre.
