I am so thankful for my husband and knowing that we need "adult" time.  He is always thinking about where we can go next and how to get there spending as little as possible (if you know him, you probably smiled with that comment).  He did a great job at planning our Boston trip.  Our flight and lodging were free, so all we paid for were our meals and Red Sox tickets.  Not too bad.  We ate like kings and queens while we were there and enjoyed the city and cool weather.

The "T" of Boston.  After the first afternoon there, we had the hang of it.

Life in Pictures

Every now and then I just need to post pictures of the girls, etc. but don't have an entire post about one picture.  Therefore, I've decided to just clean out the picture file with a lot of random pictures that I want to remember.

Daddy's boots = Daddy's girl
Daddy convinced her to stay in bed at night by buying her princess lip gloss.  It's actually worked for two weeks now.  Yeah Daddy!!

Local amphitheater.  Addison performed her ballet and then began praying as though she was in front of a congregation.  So cute.

Girls in New Boston

Jordan and I went to Boston for a long weekend this past weekend and the girls went to New Boston to enjoy grandparents and the country air.

My parents are building a new house right now so there is plenty for the girls to play on and with.  Addison is so excited because they'll have a place for her to ride her scooter.

Jordan is currently working with Addison on her states (he put a map on her ceiling above her bed).  They review one almost every night.  Her goal is to go to as many states as she can.  With my parents only being minutes away from Arkansas, my parents took her to check Arkansas off her list.
My dad said the kids liked the state of Texas much more than the Arkansas sign.

One day the girls spent it with their great grandparents, MeeMee and Papa.  MeeMee and Papa always seem to have some kind of animal or something interesting for the girls to discover.  This time, a baby deer was hanging around their house for a few days.  The girls didn't get to pet it but they were able to watch it run and around in the backyard.  Crazy stat - my mom used to have a pet deer growing up.
What's a trip to the country without making homemade ice cream?
