Another favorite part of being back in Dallas is seeing my parents, brother, sister in law, and nephew! My biggest regret is not living in the same city as them ....
Arrie is obsessed (and that might even be an understatement) with Sonic. A Route 44 vanila cream coke calls her name daily during happy hour, so we of course made a date out of it while I was in town.
It was very refreshing by the pool and in the 96+ heat!
Don't tell anyone, but Arrie rocked a bikini at 32 weeks pregnant :)
Team Lugar on Rock Band
- Jordan jammin' on the guitar
- Arrie doing her thang' singing
- Kelsey banging' on the drums
- Griffin trying to steal our equipment in the middle of our game!
How can you blame him?!
Auntie Kelsey gives lots of love!!!!
Griffin showing off how smart he is with his letters and numbers.
"Pa" asked Griffin a question while they were reading, and Griffin said "hmmm" as he put one finger on his lip as if he was pondering. It was so cute! We don't know where he learned it -- ahh kids!
All the fam and Momma behind the camera
Gorgeous sister-in-law preggers -
Gracie will be here in 5 weeks!
And I had to upload this hysterical video of Griffin driving the golf cart. This was his very first time riding a motorized vehicle and figured out how to make it "go!" Positive encouragement goes a long way and as you can tell ... my family has a lot of cheerleaders :)
After a long day with lots of playing, we all had a slumber party at Mom and Dad's, which was soo fun! Just wish Gabe could have been there with me too .... waking up with all my immediate family was special for me (and mom of course)!
The first thing we did the following morning was go to the park
while it was still somewhat cool.
HA, not quite, it was already hot at 8:30am!
Life as a kid is just the best. Check out that face!!!!
Miss you all already ... sending my love from Seattle!!!
