Museums & Parks

On Saturday, we took the girls to the Dallas Nature Museum. It was a great social put on by our local moms of mulitple group, PAMOM. The girls had a blast.

Are we there yet????
Actually all we heard the way down, was "dinosaurs!!!!"

Before the museum realized what they had let in....

Still looking....
This entertained them for at least an hour. They loved it.

Why doing laundry is dangerous........

This morning I thought the girls were enjoying their little video they requested so I went to switch the laundry over and start another round. Well............I knew that was wrong when I heard a certian sound--a piano being played! NOT GOOD!

I rounded the corner to see this......
This was an obvious break-in, by force it appears!
Upon further looking, the breech was much worse. Skye was on some internet site & about 4 windows open, Rayne was checking out the shredder ( that was unplugged thankfully), and if you look you can see at least one pair of legs at the piano. River & JuJu were playing and singing their abc's. Or so that was the story.
So the moral of the story, don't do laundry........ at least when they are awake!

CAVO!!!! and Rockin' with my Quad Mama's

Saturday night I got the absolute pleasure of seeing CAVO live (and backstage!). For those of you who don't know, CAVO's lead singer is a dad of quads and married to the beautiful Beth Walker. CAVO was in town touring twith the Crue Fest & Beth flew down to see him (Thank to Ms Casey Gerwer!). It was a blast of an evening and can't wait for them to come back in town. AND if you haven't gotten it, you must get their cd..BRIGHT NIGHTS DARK DAYS

Quad Mama's at the show: Amy Jo, Casey, Beth, & Me
Amy Jo & I posing back stage with the band.

And just because..................

Beau with all of his girls on his birthday. All he wanted was to sit and have dinner in the dining room with homemade meatballs & spagetti ( a recipe I used to to "woo" him! he still loves it).

So I got the girls all dressed up & we had a fabulous dinner followed with Chocolate cake. River gladly declared that chocolate cake should be "ebbyday". I have to agree with her :)

This is a picture from last year on his birthday. It was the first time they ever ate at the table. They have grown & changed sooooooo much this last year.
I truly am a very blessed woman with such a fabulous hubby and beautiful girls.

HOW long has it been????

I know it has been forever since I have updated the blog. But I have a great reason.... I left! Okay, it was only for 3 days, but what it takes to leave for 3 days? (did I mention I left for 3 days~ just ME!!! ) Well, last weekend was my high school class reunion and Beau being the most wonderful husband that he is, let me use some of his frequent flyer miles, rent a car, and go to New Orleans for a weekend. It was so wonderful. One of the best things was I got to go and see alot of my family that I haven't seen in a long time and drive by alot of my favorite places.
So, the first thing I did once I got off the plane, was to get as fast as I could to my rental car, plugged in the Garmin and headed to Baton Rouge........... Did you think I was goign to say the French Quarter? (hmmm...... keep reading.......) I got to Tiger Country & had lunch with none other but Jac Tubre. It was so great to see her and catch up before we got to go see her cupcakes. She has the cutest little cupcakes!

From visiting Jac, I went on to see my Grandma. She is one of the kindest women I know and NEVER has a shortage of food...GOOD FOOD! ( It was so awesome having all of my favorite Southern cooking. Mmm.. mmmm. good! Seriously, still salivating just thinking of it.) I can't tell you the last time I got to spend so much time with her. It was wonderful.

After leaving there, I went and had lunch with my cousin & his family. They just had a very handsome little boy and his big sis, Nora, came too. She is adorable. Then it was off to New Orleans to get ready & go to the reunion. I had a special date too..... Travis, my brother. Beau was home watching the girls, so my big brother came with me to make sure I didn't get into any trouble. hehehehehe...... Well, we did get home before the sun came up, that's good, right? hehehehehe

This is two of my friends from many years ago, Racheal & Eric. I seriously would not have survived high school went out them. Eric got me thru chemistry & physics. The reunion was a blast and my classmates who put it together did an amazing job. It was the first time for me to attend and hope to make the next one. I will say though, it was so refreshing to be back in New Orleans, have some beignets, walk thru the French Market & drive down some old favorite streets. It has changed alot since I lived there & more since Katrina, but it is still "home" for me. I have the BEST husband ever in that he watched the kids & said GO! I love him for it!

My last day there I spent with more of my family at my Aunt Terry's house. Again, never a shortage of food or drink OR laughs! Thanks Aunt Terry!

I know though, that most of you really only read the blog to see pictures of the girls. So, here you go!!!!

Anyone for a game of hide-and-seek? Peek-a-boo? Home demolition party?
Here are some pictures from a sculpture park Beau found while driving the girls around the day before (I was at a rock concert......more on that later). He had wanted to walk around with them but with the water, waited till we could go together. It was so worth it. The girls loved it & I was amazed that he even found this. It is in front of an office complex & right off a tollroad. It was beautiful & can't wait to do it again, especially when its not a 100 degrees.

A moving sculpture in progress!
Skye making sure the exact circumference of the circle.

JuJu looking so grown-up! I can't believe that we are only 3months away from them being 3! EEK! Where has the time gone?

River on a mission..... can you hear the theme to MI3 playing in the background?

Rayne properly accessorized as usual. She had the silver "sparkly" purse, with just a few accents....
Oh, Girls, trust me, I still have to almost run to keep up with Daddy and his long stride!

Stairway to heaven..... or at least an air-conditioned car. A MUST in TX heat!
Here is a veiw of the area. Isn't it gorgeous?

Attempt one at a picture.... oh, well...... we'll try again next time.
I promise to have ALOT more pics soon. (and to update more often!)
