Kim and I celebrated our 10th anniversary a little early this year so we could take a trip to Hawaii for spring break! The flight was long but worth every minute! We visited Pearl Harbor, the big island to see the active volcanoes, and spent plenty of time doing nothing on the beach. It was exactly what we both need and we are already planning to return! Grant received a souvenir of two live hermit crabs when we returned and he loves them!
Happy Birthday Grant! We all gathered together at Hawaiian Falls this Monday to celebrate Grant’s 8th Birthday. Grandma and Papa came as well as some friends from school to help celebrate the occasion! Everyone had a great time swimming, sliding, splashing, and eating. Kim did a wonderful job planning and decorating for the event and we almost had the place to ourselves! No one, especially his parents, can believe it was already time to celebrate another birthday.
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!
