U2 Baby-

We were so lucky to get floor seats for U2 this last month. Some friends of ours got 4 tickets and we all went. Steve and I have always wanted to go but never had the chance so this was IT! It was at the new Cowboys stadium and it was SO huge. We got there early thinking we had a great spot and then all the shoving started..people moving and pushing towards the stage..it was at that moment that I realized I was a little old to be down there, crammed in with a bunch of people. It was SO hot and everyone was sweating..not to mention, we are at the height of the swine flu pandemic! However, once U2 came out and the music started, I forgot all about that..It was incredible to be that close and I could feel the base pumping in my chest..it was cool. It took me back and I didn't feel so OLD after all!
Anyway, it was a great time and something Steve and I will never forget..thanks to our buddies the Barkers for scoring the great tickets!

Photo Shoot

I was just going through some pictures on my computer and realized I never posted the newest pics of the kids that we had taken in May of this year. My friend Anne has a new photography business and takes amazing pics! We went to this great park in Denton and the kids were SO fun to photograph! They had fun and I can't believe how cute they turned out. It makes my a little sad to think they are growing up so fast but anyway.. they turned out great and I will always cherish these sweet pics..thanks again Anne!

Back to School!

I can't believe I now have 2 kids in school! That is the sign you are approaching "old"! I was so excited for them to start back because we definitely ran out of things to do by Aug 1st but once they were gone all day, I was a little sad..I have to admit. Scotty was SO excited to start Kinder. His teacher is Mrs. Dunning and she is so darling. He was ready a yr ago to start so he wasn't nervous at all!

Abbey is starting 4th grade and her teacher's name is Ms. Stewart, who I know really well! She will be a great teacher for Abbey this year. Abbey now switches teachers for different subjects to kind of start getting her ready for middle school..did I really just say middle school and my child in the same sentence. It's weird! Anyway, they looked so cute as they walked to school together..they really are good buddies and Abbey is such a good and patient big sister. Abbey was for sure rockin' the 80's look..which also makes me very old since that trend has resurfaced! I should have kept my sweet leggings and off the shoulder "madonna" shirt with lace gloves..jk.

Anyway, I love them both so much and am so proud of them! I hope they have a great year!

Abbey's Temple Trip

Abbey was able to take a temple trip with the Activity days girls right before school started. It was a neat experience for her and I let her take my camera to take some pics of her and her friends. She actually did pretty well considering she took like 100 pictures..she was clearly excited to have use of the camera! She learned alot and the temple always has a special spirit so I am glad she could take part in this activity. She's growing up so much!

What is up with this child??

Spence is my funniest kid right now! He LOVES shoes..particularly mine! He must try on at least 15 pairs a day! He also loves hats and jewelry. I caught him coming down the stairs and could not resist taking pics. He cracks me up! I am sure he will live to regret being in this outfit but it's too cute!

Abbey's Recitals

Abbey had her dance recital at the end of May. She is getting so good and finally has her double turn.. It is a big deal! The recital was fun and she did great! I think dance might be her thing. She also had a piano recital on the same day as her dance recital so we hurried between the two events as fast as we could..it was a busy day.

WOW..I am behind!

Just realized today that I haven't blogged in 3 months..yikes. My life is passing by in fast motion and I can't catch up. The summer has been full of fun and crazy days and as we approach school once again, I thought I would catch up my life with some fun things we have done.

First, in looking back, I realized I never blogged about the fun vacation Steve and I took with some friends back in May. We went on a cruise out of Miami, and were able to stop in St. Marteen, Puerto Rico and Labadee, Haiti. It was so great and relaxing! It was just what we needed to rejuvinate! Puerto Rico was SO fun and was special for Steve because he served his mission there. It was fun walk through the city and they have such a strong culture and the architecture was really cool.. I have never seen so many colored buildings in my life..WOW! I got some nice sun tan time and Steve read like 2 books. We are getting old because all we wanted to do was relax, eat and chill with our friends. We have a fantastic time and it was a great memory for us!

Here are some highlights!
