Good Buddies!

Last Monday, sweet Dena had us over for playgroup & the boys had a BLAST playing in the backyard! She had a slide, a little fort (complete w/a basketball hoop), & the best thing of all, a WATER TABLE!! Needless to say, Chapman had so much fun splashing around w/his friends.

I only got a few pics because I was busy loving on baby Grant!! He is Landon's new little brother, and I just couldn't get enough of him :) What a cutie!!

Here are just a few pictures of the water fun...

baby Grant & his sweet mama, Cara...is he not PRECIOUS?!!!

Prom Mom

I had so much fun being a "prom mom" on Saturday night. Highland Park was having their senior prom, and one of my small group girls was asked(she is a senior at HP). Her parents were going to be out of town so...enter Alli! I had so much fun going with her to a hair appt & taking some pictures of her w/date in front of the fireplace!!

Then, David, Chapman & I loaded up in the car (camera in hand) to the house where they were taking pictures with their group (all 58 of them!!). They all looked gorgeous & had this awesome double-decker bus to tote them around town. Several of David's boys were in the group too, so we had fun seeing everyone all dressed up & snapping some pics for the real Mama!

Here are a few...

David Turns 30!!

Last weekend, David hit a big milestone & turned 30!! I wanted to do something fun, but something I knew he would love. I decided that we would get away for the weekend, and we would do some of his favorite things :)

We headed to the Hilton in Southlake Town Square, and we had SUCH a fun weekend together. Thanks to Grammy & Poppi for taking care of Chapman :)

Our weekend included Taco Diner, 17 Again, room service breakfast, massage, shopping, Snuffer's cheese fries, a nap!, delicious dinner at Truluck's, & another movie!! We had a blast!! Happy Birthday Sweetie!

I only caught a few pics, but the hotel was beautiful & we were able to walk everywhere...it was just perfect :)

Easter Sunday...

Easter Sunday sure was rainy, but the Penuels had a good one! We got up early to head to the 8am service at Watermark. Then, Marmi & Julie came back to the house for Easter baskets & treats!! We headed up to the Woodland's Grill in Allen for Easter Brunch. It was delicious. My little guy sure looked handsome in his Easter clothes...I might have to dress him back up on a sunny day for some outdoor pics :)

lots of goodies!

Blue Bunnies & Mickey Jammies

David. Chapman & I traveled to Wichita Falls to spend the first part of Easter weekend with my family. It was so much fun! Lots of relaxing on my parents' new patio furniture while the kids played outside...Chapman had so much fun with his cousins and had his first egg-dying experience :) Here are some pics from the weekend!

surprises from Grammy (balloon, "Blue Bunny", & a cool watering can)
