Tents & Tales - 2nd Edition

|
Just over a year ago, Bambino and I tested the waters at River Legacy's Tents & Tales overnight camping adventure in a city park. We didn't stay the night, we stayed for dinner and story time then headed home to see the girls. This year we wanted to do it right. So,we took the girls. We played during the day. We made crafts and got faces painted. We stayed for dinner, story time, and the movie. We made Smores. We stayed the night. We slept on the ground - no stinkin' air mattress for us. We woke up before the sun broke the horizon and headed back home before half the people knew what hit 'em. Successful trip for all. Momma and I even got a few moments to sit back and enjoy the moment while the kids entertained themselves with new friends and their imagination. Fantastic.

Hello My Old Friend

|
Been awhile since we hit up Tillery Park (a family favorite and a gem of a park in Fort Worth), so we met Boo, Jaycee, and Cody to take in the day.

Belle and Pops Party Together

|
To keep the party moving, we headed to Boo & Pops' on Saturday for games, cake balls, and fellowship.

Sharing Is Caring

In Hot Pursuit

|
Numerous laps up the steps and down the slide, but Ben could only get so close. The ellusive Belle would escape at the last second.
She's a quick one...

Get To It Girl

|
What better present to get a woman than brooms and cleaning supplies for her birthday...I joke, I joke.

Cry As You Wish

|
Being her birthday, she was allowed tears at the table.

The french toast breakfast (with sprinkles) didn't go over as well as I had hoped. But I guess it is the effort that counts.

I Had No Idea

|
Two years ago today I was trying to act calm and cool as we patiently waited for our second child to enter the world and become part of this mess we call life. Looking back at that day now, I had no idea what I was in store for.

I had no idea I could love a little girl as much as I love mine.

I had no idea that watching her personality come out and seeing how different it is from Jaxson's would be so humbling.

I had no idea that when she falls down, no matter where I am, I will be there to pick her up.

I had no idea how much I would enjoy watching Belle and Robyn form an incredible bond.

I had no idea how much I would love watching Jaxson and Belle play toghether and be friends.

I had no idea that two pig-tails could almost make a grown man cry.

I had no idea that I would have this much fun being a parent of two beautiful, healthy kids.

I had no idea that two years would fly by so fast.

I have no idea what is in store for me, and I like that feeling.

Happy Birthday Belle. You make my day, everyday.

Love you,
Your Dad and Friend

On The Road Again...

|
Over a year of sitting in one spot and collecting a plethora of dust and nothing else, the bikes came out of hibernation and reintroduced our legs to that wonderful burning sensation.

And to make matters worse, two kids plus the bike trailer made the uphill climbs just above miserable.
