At the Park

The weather is finally starting to "cool off" a little so we decided to get out of the house this afternoon and take Kate and Bailey to the park.

Bailey is quite the retriever....
For five minutes b/c she is super out of shape.

11 months

Kate is 11 months old today. I always try to take a picture on the 26th but each month it gets harder and harder because she is so active. This is the best I could do today...she kept crawling away.

Look at all those teeth!!! Kate now has 8 teeth.

Parker was "working late" aka playing golf so I took Kate to get an 11 month treat...a snowcone. She loved it!
Happy 11 months sweet girl!

Lake Conroe

We went to Lake Conroe this weekend for a mini-vacation with my family. Here are just a few pictures from our weekend away:

Kate playing at the pool with PaPa T and was really bright outside and hard to get Kate to keep her eyes open when looking up.

family was impossible to get Kate to look at the self-timer

Karen and Jonathan...and Emma Grace due in November!
Saturday night we met up with some long time family friends, The Chamberlains. Our parents have been friends since we were born. They have 2 sons, Stephen and Justin that Karen and I grew up with. We went to Burger King (for free drinks with a meal if you brought in your church bulletin) every Sunday after church for years...until they moved to Houston. Stephen is now married with 3 kiddos...3 yrs, 2 yrs and 4 mos old. It was fun to watch all the kids play together. Noah, who is 3 years old, LOVED Kate. The kids were everywhere...and we never got a picture of all of them together.

Noah kept asking if he could hold Kate...

Just in case you've been wondering what we have been up to the last few days...Kate is teething. The bottom 4 have already totally broken through and now the top 4 are all about to come through. I can see one and feel two. Needless to say she has been a little cranky, a little whiny and a little needy. Hopefully they will all pop through SOON!
