This summer we had some super fun times with our families at Lake LBJ. We are SOOOOOO blessed to have this special house to get together and so thankful for all that Mom and Dad do to keep it up and running for special weekends like these.
On July 5th we joined everyone else (except the daddies because it was a Thursday) and Celebrated Honey's birthday!
It was a big birthday, so Kacey helped collect 60 memories of Mom from the whole family which we all loved hearing and writing as well as some fun money for their upcoming cruise. Isn't this a cute way to give cash?? I had nothing to do with its cleverness so I can brag on it. :)
Not hard to think of special memories with this one!
They helped Crew go up and down the slide about a billion times and he was loving every minute of it!
Coyt, not so much. HA!
"Oh yes, this chair and nutter butter are more my speed today."
A few weeks later we were back at the lake with the Smith side of the family.
Our weekend corresponded with the Olympic opening ceremonies so Nannie planned some fun Olympics for the kids.
On our last morning we were planning to take some cousin pictures as we have done in years past. But we hit a few roadblocks. First, I forgot the big boys khaki shorts (and I think my happy-we're-taking pictures-in-the-heat-with-five-kids attitude got left behind with them). Black slickies and polos, not exactly the look we were going for. Strike two, Brylie's bow was missing in action. And the final blow was that my children were temporarily taken over by the antiphoto demons. Stacey III who is usual quite photogenic (I know I am biased, but the kid can turn it on) and corporative (when bribed with candy) was HORRIBLE. Found out later he also forgot to put on any underwear so we were really batting 1,000!
Most looked something like this.
I've officially requested a do over. But somehow Shelley managed to snag a few cute ones.
