Fantabulous Fourth!

We've had lots of fun the last few days!

It all started Thursday with the dentist visit for the kiddos. I was very nervous about how L would do, but I was worried for nothing. The dentist said she was a little sweetheart - I was so proud of her!! N did great too, but he's an old pro!!

The kids and I headed to Plano for a few days of relaxation with Nana and Gpa. L experienced another first - fireworks! After crying to go home most of the evening (hey, it's hard for a 3 y.o. to wait for 9:30 fireworks!) she LOVED it once they started. She wanted to do it again as soon as they were over. She kept telling me that she wasn't scared at all. N made lots of new friends during the fireworks and had fun capturing grasshoppers and scaring Nana and I with them!

Saturday, mom and I went to the Southern Living House in Ft. Worth while Gpa and the kids went to the National Cowgirl Museum. It was a good day.

Sunday, I got the chance to catch up with Mary my high school friend whom I haven't seen in too many years! It was great to catch up and the time flew by! Now, we only have to figure out a way to get Kathryn to Texas!

Last night Lance made it home after 10 days away - the kiddos and I were very happy to see him home safe and sound!

Great weekend - hope yours was good as well!!

The cowgirl museum sounds fun. I bet S would love that. S got to experience fireworks for the first time too, she couldn't sit still. Glad Lance is back for a bit. It won't be much longer...we are already into July!

Awww!! I'll bet there is nothing like first time fireworks! I can't wait!

Sounds awesome! Glad Lance is home!
Who's your kids' dentist? The one where they go back alone?
Agirl hasn't been yet. Jman too is an old pro and needs his back to school check up soon!

It was soooo good to visit with you without having to type! We have no excuses to not get together more frequently and I agree, we have got to get Kathryn here...somehow!

Somehow I am gonna get there. John is trying to plan a trip to Crockett, Texas sometime. I am hoping I can tag along somehow. At least we have our blogs!!!

That's so great that your family is close and you take advantage of seeing them on a regular basis!

(So who are the other 2 queens??) ...just curious :-)
