Happy Birthday! We all got together to help Grandma celebrate her birthday Sunday. It was a little early but Monday is no day to celebrate! We took a drive to the Dallas Arboretum and spent the day taking in the sites and enjoying family time. There was a huge kids area of activities for Grant with a climbing treehouse to top it off. Grandma’s favorite flowers were on display EVERYWHERE. We all agreed we had never seen so many tulips in one place before. The weather was perfect and we capped of the day with some Uncle Julio’s. A perfect day to celebrate a wonderful woman!
Grant, accompanied by Mom and Dad, got to experience our first Boy Scout’s Blue and Gold Banquet on Friday! Grant put on his class A uniform and we all went to UUMC. Dinner was catered, we even got to taste some derby car desserts. Grant had earned his Tiger Rank and a plethora of belt loops and patches. We are so proud of our scout!
Merry Christmas! We can’t believe it is that time of year again already! We all gathered at Ellen and Rayford’s to celebrate the season and have a wonderful feast. Some of us got up earlier than others (cough Grant cough) but the joy of the season enveloped us all. Here’s wishing for the best year for everyone…Ho Ho Ho!
Over the weekend Grant and his Boy Scout friends took and trip to Worth Ranch to go on our first overnight camping trip! Grant, Bobby, Charlie, and Andrew among others had a great time hiking, exploring, roasting marshmallows and generally running a muck! We had a great time and look forward to the next camping trip!
Grant wrapped up his first year in school this Friday! He was so excited to start his summer break and we are so proud of all he accomplished! He is now a reader/author/editor, aspiring mathematician, and enjoys cultural studies. Mom and Dad couldn’t be more proud of him and for him!
