Fire Station Field Trip

A couple of years ago, I went on a field trip with my friends, Meghan and Ava. I wasn't so fond of the suits or fire trucks back then. So, Mommy decided it was time to give it another try....now that I am older and wiser. :-))



I am not scared of the fireman in his fire suit at all! Yay!!




I even volunteered to show the other kids how you stop, drop and roll.




Lounging in the firemen's living area!




I am on my way!!




Yep, the Fire truck tires are still bigger than me.




Thanks firemen! I appreciate your kindness!

We All Scream for Icecream!

Today, we went to the Brenham Blue Bell Creamery!! We took the 45 minute tour and I learned how they make one of my favorite treats...Ice cream!!



Ella was sleeping in her stroller, but we still wanted her to be in the picture. :-)




Well we had to get one more when she woke up.



The Blue Bell Cow



Mommy and Ella wanted in on the action.



Of course, the best part of the tour was getting to enjoy a cup of yummy Blue Bell Ice cream! It was worth the wait!

Happy Birthday USA 2011

This 4th of July was a great one!
We started by sporting our patriotic gear with some pretty smiles.






Then we were off to the annual Round Rock 4th of July parade.


Ready to fill my bag full of yummy candy!


Ella was very interested in the parade too.


My neighbors, Lauren and Logan, and I loved waving at everyone.







The Crew!

After the parade, we headed to grandma's to grill out and play in the pool all day!
Just what the 4th of July is all about!
Thank you to all those who serve to allow me to have such wonderful freedoms!

Happy 4th of July!!!

Ella's Swinging!!

Finally Ella is able to swing next me ...very slowly and carefully. But it is better than when she tried to swing a few weeks ago, and Mommy was worried Ella might fall through the leg holes.





















I love my new swing buddy!!

Tyler Fun!

This Memorial Day, we packed our bags and headed for Lake Tyler! On the way, we stopped in Waco to visit the Cameron Zoo!!
I have to say, this is a beautiful zoo, and it is the perfect size!!










I loved seeing these BIG jaguars and cougars. When I asked Daddy what they eat, he replied, "Mommy!" Daddy is so funny sometimes.











Ella loved hanging out at the zoo riding in the stroller and in the Bjorn.










One of my favorites were these beautiful giraffes. I loved watching them reach up with their tongues to tear off tree limbs.








We saw many big poisonous snakes and Komodo Dragons! I love catching lizards. But, you won't find me catching these lizards.

We arrived in Tyler and got to see Mimi, Papa Andy and Mam'ma Ruth!









Ella with Great Mam'ma Ruth
She is the best great grandmother ever!!!










Loving on Mimi

Later, we arrived at the lake house in Tyler. We are so blessed that my Pop Pop has been coming up here for 18 years now. I got to play volleyball and badminton, swim, go canoeing, and have loads of fun with more family.






Here I am getting ready to ride the jet ski with Pop Pop!




And we are off!!!


Happy Memorial Day!!!!
