Who Said They Wouldn't Do It???

Caleb, Noah, Susan took a jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

Yep..they all went skydiving together!

There's the lineup... They all got to go on the same plane. Susan jumped first, followed by Noah- then Caleb.

Caleb and his instructor going over a few pointers before the big jump.

The boys were really excited to see Daddy fly down in a parachute!

Caleb, Susan, & Noah. What an awesome experience to be able to do together!

Caleb & his instructor. They jumped tandom, so he was the one responsible for pulling the shoot open.

Boarding the plane...yikes!

Then, after a 15 minute flight into the air, we saw this...

Coming in for a landing!

Luke was so proud!

Future skydivers!

A Day At Palm Beach

Since Caleb is off and Erin & Noah are in town, we planned some fun things to do this week. One of them was Palm Beach at Moody Gardens and boy did we have some fun!

Dad, Mom, & the big boys. (since this was gonna be a long day out in the heat we left Owen at home with our sweet babysitter Ashley)

We are so happy to have family in town!

The kids splashed and played the whole day. There were water slides, splash pads, a lazy river and a wave pool. What more could you possibly ask for?

A few friends went along with us...Kristen, Madi, Abi, Amy, Ford, and Baby Noah.

Uncle Nonah & Cashy Cash

EE & Bball

Yaya and three of her four grandsons.

At the end of the day, we had two very tired little boys as you can see...

That's ok, we can rest up tonight and get ready for tomorrow's adventures!

Pizza Making 101

One of the things on our Summer Fun List was to make a homemade pizza. Thanks to Uncle Nonah, we were able to check that off our list last night!

We heard that he was the pizza making expert, so we got him to share his pizza knowledge with a few sweet little kiddos!

Our friends Harper & Luke were over, so we formed an assembly line so they could each take a turn putting on a topping.

There they are...in age order of course (from right to left).

Best looking pizza I have every seen. Let's stick it in the oven ;)

Everyone was in agreement that it tasted as good as it looked and now...we all know how to make pizza!

Happy Birthday To My Honey!

Today Caleb turned 30 years old! We went out last night with friends to celebrate and spent the day with family.

Dinner last night at Cafe Adobe followed by dancing ;)

Yummy birthday drink :)

Then today, we played volleyball with our siblings on Caleb's side. Yep...that's all of us!

Tonight, dinner and swimming! Uncle Nonah & Owen in the pool.

Dad & the boys!

Caleb & Noah celebrating their birthdays. Noah's is on the 28th, so I have a feeling these two brothers have celebrated a birthday or two together.

Happy Birthday Caleb! I can't say enough how much you mean to me and the boys. You are exactly everything we could have ever wanted and needed.

Sea World Here We Come!

After Father's Day lunch, we loaded up in the car with our friends Kristen, Madi, & Abi and drove to San Antonio. Caleb was sweet enough to stay home and watch Owen, so I could have some fun time with the big boys.

Here we go!

After a 3.5 hour car ride, we finally arrived to our hotel in San Antonio. Of course...we let the kids do what any kid should do when they first get to their hotel.


After they got all of their jumps out, we dressed up and headed to the Riverwalk for some fun.

Quick pose at the hotel.

Stop by the Alamo for a brief history lesson! Yay Texas for defeating the Mexican army!

Another pose for mom.

Stop by the pretty water fall!

Luke saw this huge transformer at the wax museum. Isn't that cool?

We ate dinner on the River Walk, then headed back to our hotel to let the kids swim on the roof top pool. They thought that was pretty amazing!

Quick shower and everyone got tucked in to bed

Because tomorrow...WE ARE GOING TO SEA WORLD!

Sea World

Just a few pictures out front and we were ready for some fun!

First things first, we road the Shamu roller coaster. I sat with Brady and he LOVED IT!

Then we saw the Azul Show with acrobats and dancing dolphins!

Brady & Abi played in the water park with me while Kristen took the big kids to ride this ride...

I think we are all in agreement that our favorite part of Sea World was the Shamu show! It was so cool!

The kids went down front to get splashed by Shamu....I think he got Luke pretty good!

They also had this really cool Sesame Street Show and the kids got to sit up close and even touch some of the characters.

Sea Lions

Luke got to feed the Sea Lions! He even got one to do a back flip!

Mommy had so much fun spending some quality time with my boys!

Luke & Madi on another roller coaster.

Brady on a roller coaster.

I think everyone was totally wiped out by that time and ready to head home.

We had so much fun and have memories that will last a lifetime.

Again, thanks to Caleb & Aunt KK for helping out with Owen back home so we could go.
