4th of July

Happy late 4th of July to everyone! We had a fun weekend in East Texas. It first started with Gabriel's 6th birthday party on July 3. He had a Spongebob party and Kristina and Oscar were happy to host his party at their new house in Tyler. They moved to Tyler in mid-June and are getting settled in. It's going to be fun having them only 2 hours away instead of 5. On Saturday, Kristina threw Oscar a party to recognize his completion of his many years of cardiology training. He is now officially done with his training and will be starting with his practice next week.

Such a big boy, it's hard to believe he is 6 and will be starting Kindergarten in August.

Party time

He loves Star Wars

Sweet cousins

Luke got his first busted lip over the weekend. It was so swollen but looked much better the next day!

Jacob got the job of filling the pinata with candy. He was in heaven with his hands over all that candy!

Luke was helping-again with the silly pose

At Oscar's party- a rare photo of my dad and grandpa and all of his siblings together

Rhonda, Brian and Emily drove to Kilgore for the party. We were so glad they came.

Of course, we had to do sparklers. Surprisingly, Jacob was so excited about it!

Jacob loves making this silly face and Luke is trying to do it too. Too funny!

One last picture of Jacob at his summer camp last week. They had a little parade around the school and wore their homemade shirts.


  1. Oh these are cute girl!! The party looked like such a blast! That pic of dad and the siblings with GP is great!

  2. Looks like you guys had so much fun. I'm a little jealous of your fun family get togethers on New Year's and 4th of July! And I love your new blog background. So cute.

  3. Your new background is so precious! I'm so thrilled for your family that you are all so close again. What a blessing! Your boys are just so sweet and cute! I love seeing all the pics of the kiddos playing together.

  4. Sounds like you guys have been having a summer packed full of fun! Love seeing all the photos of the kiddos - makes my heart smile. Although the pics at Kristina's house made me a bit homesick. =) Hope you're having fun at Yellowstone. Can't wait to see those photos!

  5. what a fun post girl! you got some good pics! It's soo nice to be able to get together so easily now, I love it! And you too!
