Turning 3

Time for birthday cake!  (The owl is for later)

James wanted a T-Rex cake so we got him these Schleich dinosaurs to put on top.

We also picked up a bag of chocolate rocks on our weekend getaway.

The chocolate rocks were a big hit.  See James picking them off one by one.

Gotta load up on more rocks.

Time for presents!

Hailey and Evan were really getting into it.

There are plenty of plastic hammers but we needed something a little durable for James to play with.

Getting ready to work.

He also got a doctor kit.

And a chainsaw.

Hailey is his first patient.

Baby Luke just slept through all of the festivities.

Now it's pinata time.

James got some good first hits in.

No blindfolds for these kids.

The pinata was no match for Hailey once she got her turn.

Dr. James with his next patient.

Trying out his new chainsaw.

Baby Luke

The kids have a new cousin!  Baby Luke was born March 24.

 Everyone wanted their turn with baby Luke.

And he lives next door so we get to see him alot, huh guys?

Weekend Getaway

The Ashcrafts gave us a resort stay for Christmas so this weekend we went away, just the two of us.

Here it is!  Our room at the Lakehouse Hotel and Golf Resort in San Marcos.

First we wandered around to get the feel of the place.

There's the restaurant with a nice view of the lake.

And someone has a gondola.

Our stay includes an hour out on the lake with a kayak.

It was very nice and relaxing out on the water.

We saw geese and ducks and other fowl but only this one black swan.

If the kids were here they'd love throwing balls at this shooting gallery just inside the restaurant.

On a little nature walk nearby.

One night away from the kids and already we're feeling so relaxed.

Nice quiet evening around the fire pit.
