Special thanks

June and July are Birthday months for our little family and this summer it was hard to celebrate, but thanks to our friends and family they made us feel so, very special being so far away! Britlynn and I got a huge package from Nana and Papa. Britlynn got the cutest cards and gifts from all of her cousins. she loved all of them! she kept saying: "wow! look! Wow!". We threw her a little party and she got spoiled by all of her friends out here in Texas. Jeff and Torrie sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers on my Birthday. it was a sweet surprise to come home to flowers on my doorstep. And later that night, Jake had a dozen roses and the girls took me out to lunch at P.F.Changs. i think Jake's birthday was a little rough, but i hope he still felt somewhat special even though he was out until 1:30 am working! Anyway, we felt very loved and grateful to have such amazing, caring, loving family and friends to go out of their way to make us feel so special on our birthdays! Thanks again to all of you:) we love you! Pictures are coming soon:)

Last week we decided we would take a trip to San Antonio, meet up with Emily and take the girls to SeaWorld. Once we got there it was around 12:30 and So HOT! There were a few times walking around, i thought i was going to pass out! We had such a fun time and the girls loved all the fun things there was to do! We got to feed Dolphins( Britlynn did not want to leave the dolphins), Play at the water park, See Shamu, and watch a cute show with Sea Lions! it was a great day! I think we gaine d a greater appreciation for our husbands and what they go through EVERYDAY! i can't imagine walking around in this heat all day long, everyday. I'm so grateful and thankful for Jake. We don't see him very much, but when we do we soak up every minute! He's doing a great job and we're so proud of him!

Picture with Shamu! Britlynn was very hesitant to touch him, but for some reason, she was more than happy to give him a kiss! i wish i would have gotten it on camera!

Feeding the dolphins

These pictures turned out so cute! Britlynn LOVED the dolphins

Coolin' off at the water park!

Britlynn missed most of Shamu, but when she woke up and saw the Giant Whales, she was so excited!


"Cannery Row Caper"
This show was so cute! the girls loved the Sea Lions

Loving the show...

Showing off their Shamu's! Britlynn is obsessed with this little whale! she has to have him in bed with her and loves to take him with her wherever she goes.

We're Baaack!

We are welcoming ourselves back to the blog world! it's been a year and half since i have last updated and it would probably take way too long to go back that far, so we are going to start from now:) A lot has changed and A lot has happened!!! And, we are currently living in Laredo, TX. Jake is working for Vivint Selling alarm systems and is doing great, as of now! Britlynn has become quite the little sassy pants, but we love her anyway! i think we have entered into the "terrible twos!" yikes! We have a little baby BOY on the way and are so excited to welcome him into our crazy little world in October! We have been crazy busy getting things ready to move out here to Texas, it's hard to think about anything else. so far, we are enjoying it , but we feel a little out of place. Britlynn gets quite a few looks and she has even had people come up to her and touch her. i don't think they see alot of fair skinned, blue eyed, blondies around here! We are basically living in Mexico, so it's a quite a change for us. the temperature is very hot and humid. so, there's a little bit of what has been going on with us lately. here's some pictures from our Trip Jake and I took to Mexico before we headed out. also, are pictures from Easter and our first week in Texas:) WE love and miss you all! see ya'll soon!

Britlynn did pretty good on our long trip to Texas.We had 3 layovers! it wasn't too bad and i'm glad i wasn't alone! Annie and Addison flew out with us and made our trip so much better!

Annie got all the Reps a little gift bag and the Wives got something special, too!:)

Play time with Daddy!

We found this delicious fondu place! Britlynn had some chocolate covered gummies and we got chocolate caramel apples! yumm!

Playing at the Mall:)

These two have become quite the little buddies. we're hoping Addison will help Britlynn to talk this summer!

We went to the circus and this was the only pic i got!

Wiped out from a long day!

{Easter} Britlynn dyed her first Easter eggs (i think her hand got more than the egg), but it was fun to watch her:)

{Mexico} Jake and I took off to Mexico for a 6 day Vacation and left Britlynn with my parents. We all had a blast!! Britlynn got spoiled rotten and so did we!

Say "Cheese!"

i had to throw this one in...haha

{Baby Boy}
As of now, Our little boy looks great! Jake got to feel him kick around for the first time a couple nights ago. it's so fun to feel him move around. we feel very lucky and grateful to have this little baby and can't wait to meet him. This pregnancy is a little bit more exhausting, but i think it's obvious why that is:) I swear Britlynn knows there's a baby on the way. i'll ask her: "where's the baby?" and she'll point to my tummy and say: "There it is". she's going to be an awesome big sister to her little bro.
