Kindergarten Luncheon

Today our church hosted the Kindergarten Luncheon. 

 The kids are served lunch like a school cafeteria. They go through the line with a tray and get to pick their food like they will at school. (parents were all but forbidden to help their kids!)

Zoey has been with most of the kids since her first Sunday in church! 
After we ate, our kids sat in our laps and we prayed over them.
It was such a special time spent with our friends praying for our children as they begin their journey into school.
 All of Zoey's best friends. 

 I still can't believe my Zoey Jane is starting kindergarten!
But I am oh so proud of her! I know she will do great!!

Random Life

It's summertime in Texas. 
It's too hot to do anything...except for swimming.
Zo has been swimming with Abigayle a few times...
 ...and we've been putting the community pool to use!!

 Zoey is losing teeth left and right! She finally lost her second front tooth on Friday July 21, and lost another bottom tooth on Sunday July 23!! 
That's a total of 5 teeth gone!
 Zoey dances around the house 24/7 and is ALWAYS putting on dance performances for us. We finally contacted a dance studio about enrolling her in ballet. We went and toured the studio last night. We enrolled her and got her fitted for her first pair of ballet shoes. She is so excited and couldn't stop smiling! 
 Her first class is the week of the 21st. She can't wait!

Zoo Trip

A couple of Saturday's ago, we got up early and went to the zoo. We wanted to get there early before it got too hot!
 Thankfully they had several misting stations for a quick cool down. Zoey loved them, Elleigh Kate, not so much!
 Zoey got to see a snake up close and personal.
 It was our first time to see the Hippos...who were sleeping in the water.
 It was scorching hot by the time we had seen everything. 
We rode the carousel then headed home.

A trip to the zoo never disappoints!

Lake Medina - Day 4

Our 4th and final day at Lake Medina was the 4th of July. One of my most favorite holidays. 
 We had heard about a local parade that was taking place not far from the camp ground so we went.
It was HOT, and probably the smallest parade that I have ever attended...but the girls had fun and that's all that mattered!

 After lunch and a short nap, we headed to the pool. When we got there we found that it was closed. We were all pretty bummed, but made the best of it. We went to the lake, this time we were going to swim. I really didn't think the girls would swim in it, but after some coaxing and to my surprise they did! 
We had a blast...and I didn't take a single picture :(
Even with the short nap, the girls rallied with energy. We brought out the patriotic glow sticks (Zoey is obsessed with glow sticks), and went to the lake to watch fireworks.

 We found a nice spot, settled in, watched the BEAUTIFUL sunset, and ended our night with fireworks. It was my definition of the perfect 4th of July!
The next morning we loaded up and went home.
I think we all agreed that it was by far our favorite camping trip thus far.
We definitely made some lasting memories!

Lake Medina - Day 3

Monday morning we decided to take it slow. Zoey couldn't wait to get back to the lake to collect more shells. 
So back down to the lake we went.

 After being down at the lake working up an appetite, we headed back to the camper for lunch. Brad grilled pork chops, that had been marinating over night, and pan seared asparagus...YUM!!
 While Brad grilled, the girls and I relaxed!
The rest of the day consisted of a naps and swimming!

Lake Medina - Day 2

When we got back from the Apple store, we made a stop at the lake on our way to the pool.
The lake with the 'beach' area was a short walk from our camper.
Zoey loved looking for seashells! Elleigh Kate just walked around and splashed some...then was very ready to go to the "poooo" (pool).
