Mommy and Daddy Trip....

So Monty took me on a cruise to the Bahamas in April. We were gone for a week and had some definite R&R. After the cruise we stayed in Florida at the Doral Golf Resort which was absolutely amazing. While we were there we ate Cuban food which makes me drool even thinking about it! Best of all we did not get sea sick and would love to do it again...any takers:)

Owens Day out with Thomas the Tank Engine...and daddy!

Monty and Owen had a boys weekend trip to Dallas for a train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine! Owen was in Thomas heaven! They spent about 5 hours there playing with trains, legos, bounce houses and of course they got an actual train ride with Thomas! I don't think even Owen could forget this day!

Daddy and Max

I had to post these two pictures because I think they are so adorable! Maxwell with his papa...too cute!

You know your a red neck when you....

Buy the Sams Club special! Okay so maybe this sounds rude but you have to admit it is a little white trash! Hey we love this pool and are so glad it didn't cost us a 2nd mortgage:) It is for the kids and they absolutely have had a ball playing in it! No complaints from me about this pretty pool in my backyard...thanks Monty for all the blood, sweat and tears you put in to setting it up!

Owen reciting Green Eggs and Ham

Here is a video of Owen reciting Green Eggs and Ham. Everyday he makes his own plate of green eggs and ham out of paper and will follow you around the house asking "Do you like green eggs and ham?" This will continue until you repeat your part. It is very cute and he has the whole thing memorized. However, we hope that he will move on to another book soon!

Snakes, Snakes and more Snakes...oh my!

I thought we would share a little of our West Texas experience in regards to snakes! In Sweetwater, Texas about 20 miles away they have an Annual Rattle Snake Roundup. Now before you judge just know that this is done so they can milk the snakes to get venom and save your life in case you are ever bit by a rattlesnake! We took the kids and could not believe how many snakes and people were there! People drive from all over to come to this and it is the largest Rattlesnake roundup in the world. Which makes sense since we found our own little rattlesnake in the garage...the last picture. It was a baby snake compared to many of these giant ones at the roundup. However, the baby ones can be most deadly because when they bite, they don't let go but rather stay latched and thus secreting more venom in you. Soooo....anyone wanna come visit??? LOL! Hope you all enjoy the videos below!

The girls bought rattle necklaces and Owen has a rattlesnake head necklace
