EJ Summer Regional Meeting

Last weekend we ventured to the Hyatt Resort in San Antonio for our first annual Edward Jones Summer Regional Meeting.  We are happy to be a part of region #293!  :)

We especially enjoyed catching up with the Winn family from Hunstville :)

The resort was wonderful!  The kids especially loved the on site water slide and lazy river. 

We enjoyed S'mores and a movie on the lawn!

On the last night we attended a formal awards dinner. 

We enjoyed the weekend and felt to welcomed, refreshed and encouraged :)

Galveston 2017

After picking the big kids up from camp we headed straight to Galveston to meet Big Daddy and Lita.  We enjoyed a couple of days in the sand and water!

Uncle Joseph took Owen fishing twice and he had lots of fun!  He even caught a few fish :)

"Cheesing" in their matching monogrammed crab shirts :) 

The waves and breeze put Hudson at ease.  He snoozed at the beach!

My three beach babies :)

One day we ventured to Schlitterbahn and the other we visited the Moody Gardens Aquarium.  Hudson is wild about fish these days so we knew he would enjoy it :) 

Here they are petting sting rays.  We were also able to touch jelly fish (yikes!)

What a great exhibit!  It was enjoyed by all ages!

Emma is 10-and-a-half!

Sweet Emma Grace is 10-and-a-half!  She is such a blessing and is the best big sister around :) 

She enjoys softball, writing, filming short movies and riding her bike.  She also spends lots of time entertaining two little brothers :)

Our favorite girl is spunky, dependable, imaginative, patient and kind always.   

She enjoyed Baylor UYP again this year and took "Starting a business" and "Instachallenge".   

Last month she concluded her second full year of piano lessons.  She did a beautiful job at her recital!

Padres baseball

Owen has enjoyed his final season of coach pitch baseball!  This year he is on the Padres and plays third base.  Jarrod is an assistant coach for the team. 

The Padres won first place in their division!!

School's OUT for Summer!!

We survived another May and it's officially sweet Summertime!!!

Emma's last day of elementary school was certainly emotional.  It really seems like just yesterday that we dropped her off at Kindergarten.  The night before the parents gathered to decorate the classroom. 

Sweet friends - onward to intermediate! :)

"HOORAY" for a memorable 4th grade year!

Besties walking the hall for the very last time :(
