29 again and again;)

So this past weekend I turned 29 for the 5th time;) haha! Everyone that knows me knows how much I heart birthdays, to be honest though now that I've had kiddos I enjoy celebrating theirs SO much and less and less celebrating mine! We had a pretty somber weekend, our sweet Gigi went to be with our Heavenly Father on Monday so we spent most of the weekend with her and preparing our hearts for her to pass. I am SO incredibly thankful for the time we've had with her and getting to help her eat and drink on Friday night. We spent my actual birthday at her side and our sweet family sang happy birthday to me with a cake at her bedside, I had to hold back crocodile tears. The hubs and I were able to sneak away on Saturday for a quick Staycation (I highly recommend to all couples). We grabbed quick drinks at Katy Trail Ice House (where I've been wanting to see for ages), laid by the pool, ate the most amazing 240 day aged steak at the Knife with sweet friends and had a nice overnight at The Highland Hotel in Dallas. My sweet hubby surprised me with the sweetest earrings! He truly is the best gift giver (and gifts is one of my love languages-score!!-especially surprise thoughtful ones)

Quick drinks with my love

Pool time

Some perfect poolside reading

I am SO disappointed in myself this is the only picture I snatched of us!

Babies, besties and Beauty and the Beast

Two biggies this past week. Cayson had to be converted to a toddler bed thanks to his new found skill of ninjaing his way out of his crib and Isabella and I had an adorable date night with Grey and my bestie Jaimee to see Beauty and the Beast. We had a blast seeing Beauty and the Beast and Winspear. The girls were SO adorable.  And you know ever since Cayson was born sleep has evaded us, I swear he is out to challenge my already incredible ability to function on zero sleep, so its obviously fitting that he decided to climb out of his crib at 22 months and fight sleep likes its his job!
The ONLY option at this point.

The adorable stages of sneaking out his first night after he's "falling asleep"

We made it. 1/2 in, 1/2 out-this counts….

Get a book read to her by Gloria Campos

These two were too cute for words!

We are officially having more date nights! Loved this time with my sweet girl

We have dreamed of these days since we were singing DC talk in the hallways of high school

They wanted to pose with the mannequins

Surviving Buy buy baby barely

I am thankful for sweet times and sweet memories even if I might never sleep again!

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle-ballet recital

SO I am not a girlie girl or a ballet mom. Not gonna lie I stressed over the recital thing and how in the world do you do stage makeup ha! But I adored Isabella and I's Saturday morning ballet time and her recital was SO incredibly adorable!! And I think I may have done an okay job with her makeup;)

Father's weekend wrap up

We had a very relaxing much needed weekend around here. We spent 90% of the time in the pool. Friday and Sunday our sweet friends the Laitinen's joined the pool festivites. Saturday was Isabella's first ballet recital…can't wait to share pics…and afterwards we decided a family pool party/birthday celebration/Father's day celebration was in order

Because when its almost your birthday you get 2 desserts

This boy LOVES sweets

Isabella adores her Mila

She tried to pick her up like a baby doll and was so excited she couldn't keep her hands off
He loves dogs and especially when they give him kisses, haha
Tongue kisses…bahaha

This boy learned how to climb out of his crib and slept so little for days that this is how we shopped Target
