Me and Allana
Me and Brant
Eben and Allana
I took pictures with them and took pictures of Allana with Eben, but didn't get one of us together. I hate when that happens. We really enjoyed each other's company that night. We even played on the slot machines for a while.
I had put in $20 and made my way up to winning $56.75. I ended up pulling out at $90. I figured that I'd stop while I was ahead.
Saturday we had my mom and stepdad, Keith, as well as Amy, Patrick, and Lilly, and Brant over for a fish fry. Everything we ate was fried. The fish, shrimp, french fries, and hush puppies.
Eben got some pretty wonderful things for his birthday. He got a batter pro container that he's been wanting for years, but we could never find one. He also got a fishing pole, and I got him a stainless steele 5 burner barbeque pit. He was soooo not expecting that. I wanted to spoil him on his birthday and let him know how much he means to us.
Two guys with bad backs lifting and moving a very heavy box. Sorry we couldn't help ya'll boys, but we're women...we don't lift heavy things.
The girls had fun playing too. We turned up the music for them to dance to. Then we let them play in the Jeep until they almost ran over Lilly. I had to unplug it after that.
The toy company that makes these ride-on toys needs to make a limo so that they can all fit comfortably.
I absolutely love the joy and happiness that is on their sweet precious faces. Makes my heart skip a beat.
The next day, we made a family outing to Wal-Mart. We picked up a pool for the backyard. We had one a few years ago and we really enjoyed it, but there are two very large trees in the backyard that keeps us busy in the pool cleaning, rather than playing. We decided that we'd get another one since I'm off every summer. I'd rather us spend our time outside in the pool rather than cooped up in the house. This Texas heat can do a number on you. It's nice to know that we can jump in any time we want.
We were in it from the time we put the hose in until it filled up. Katie didn't want to get out.
