Let Me Catch You Up

June 28, 2010

I've been MIA on my blog for almost a week, which isn't normal for me. We've been running ragged lately with swimming lessons, ring sizing, wedding, etc. It's been a pretty good weekend, and I wanted to catch everyone up on our lives. Here are some recent pictures from the past weekend. Enjoy!

Bella & Grandma before her last Aqua Tots Class. She is now moved up to a level 4!

She was so excited to wear her new goggles!

She was the only student there, so she got a lot of practice time in.

My little daredevil! She had no fear jumping into the pool, (hence why we are investing in swim lessons!)

She hated doing this one! Ha!

End of class, she is "blowing bubbles" to learn to go under water.

Jessika & Kenny's Wedding!

Eric & I at the reception.
(I didn't get to take any wedding pictures, we were having too much fun!)

The bride & groom with our little group!

Sonia & I, love this girl!

Me, Sandra (my SIL), & Sonia! We always take pictures like this!

Overall, a great fun weekend! Have a good Monday!

Bella's Swim Class

June 23, 2010

For the 1st time, we got to watch Bella take a swim class. Usually her classes are during her school day, so we were really excited for her make up class! She did great and Mommy of course took tons of pictures. We are so very proud of her and can't wait to show everyone her skills! Ha! At the end is a video of the end of her class. She got to ride on the froggy! Enjoy!

Fun Father's Day

June 21, 2010

Yesterday we had so much fun on our very last vacation day. We started by going to church and celebrating Father's Day with our congregation. It was an uplifting experience!

We headed over to Eric's parents' house afterwards and had bbq'd steaks, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, & delicious desserts for lunch! The guys watched the World Cup while Mom, Sandra, & I chatted in the kitchen. Bella ran around the house playing with bubbles & singing most of the day! She looked so adorable in her sun dress! We left there and went to Eric's grandparents' house to have dinner with them as well. It was a great day, & I got home in time to do a little more laundry and spend some quality time with Bella for the evening. It was hard getting her back on her sleep schedule, but she was asleep by 9 and slept in her bed all night!

This morning, we all woke up groggy and not used to the 5:45 a.m. time! We all made it to school/work on time, even though Bella had a minor breakdown at school when she realized I wasn't going to be with her all day. Her teacher scooped her up and held her to calm her down while I snuck out. I felt terrible leaving, but knew she would cry since she has been with me & Daddy for the last 10 days all day and night. We got through it though, and I am already missing her! Hope everyone is having a good Monday!

This is for both Grandpa, Papa, & Daddy from Bella!

Papa, thank you for being there for me and loving me. You are a great Papa & I love you so much!

Thank you for everything you've given & done for me. You are such a wonderful Daddy & I love you very much! I hope you have the best Father's Day yet!

I love my Grandpa, Papa, & Daddy so much and am so blessed to have all of them in my life! HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!


Home at Last!

First off, I just want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC! Yesterday was Eric's 29th birthday! To celebrate, we drove back from Lubbock! Ha! We did end up going to dinner, but more on that in a sec! Happy Birthday Love!

We drove from Lubbock to Round Rock yesterday and got in around 2 p.m. I caught a head cold from the elevations in New Mexico and felt really bad the whole was home (approx. 6 1/2 hour drive!) Once we got home and got everything out of the car, Eric's mom came to pick Bella up. I was able to feel good enough to take Eric to Gloria's Restaurant for dinner to celebrate his birthday. We had a wonderful dinner just the 2 of us, then walked around the Domain for a bit. Afterwards, I started feeling terrible, and we were supposed to meet with his friends for drinks, so I dropped him off at his friend's house and came home to sleep & get better.

Today, we have tons of laundry to do, plus a lot of running around. I need to get Bella a new pair of Crocs because hers are torn apart at this point. She loves wearing them for everything and it shows! We also have to get Eric's Dad's present for Father's Day and grocery shopping since we have no food in the house.

Tomorrow, we are going to church in the morning and then to his parents' house to celebrate Father's Day/Eric's birthday! It should be a great weekend!

Happy Father's Day to my Daddy! I love you so much and can't thank you enough for being such a great Dad all these years! You mean the world to me! I love you!
