Filling Mommy's Shoes

What a big girl! Kaity looks better in these shoes than Mommy does. She also says cheeeeese anytime you pull a camera out. It's a very cute stage.

Will and Lizzie

Will has a huge crush on his cousin Lizzie! He had to sit next to her or on her the whole time we were in Texas.

Palo Duro Canyon

While there, we went on a jeep tour down into the canyon and visited the state park where we did a little hiking.

Garden Fairy

Kaity was a garden fairy! Uncle Ed made her a wreath. She loves Uncle Ed!

Will the Cowboy

Will got new boots and jeans (and a toy gun) while we were in Texas. Here we are at the feedyard visiting Nana's cows and shooting at bugs.

Dinner at the Big Texan - Home of the 72 oz. Steak (but nobody tried it)

Fishing at Melrose

Will loves to fish! He spent 1 1/2 hours in the boat with Daddy and did great! He caught minnows with the net - amazingly he has quick reflexes and actually got some. He can't wait to go again with his Batman fishing pole!

What a week!

So, we got back from a whirwind trip to Texas, I started my new job, and we're making exciting progress on our house!

The trip was great - travelling through the airports with two kids, two carseats, two parents, two grandparents, 1 great-granparent (in a wheelchair) and all of our carry on luggage was an experience I don't care to repeat anytime soon. The kids were great on the plane, Texas was Texas (lots of plains), the canyons were beautiful, and visting with family is always nice. I'll post some pictures soon.

I've started my new job and, so far, I love it! It's exactly what I spent six years in school to learn how to do. I'm having to get out my college textbooks some, but that's okay. It's also very convenient to the daycare and for parking. It's only my third day, so I'll keep you posted.

House Stuff - the exciting part! We met with the appraisal and know how much the lot is worth, met with the architect and he's working on second round of blue prints, met with the builder, and the surveyor is coming tomorrow. We're really moving along! It's very exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. We might even break ground by September (it seems like a long way off, but it's really not when you figure in all the stuff we have left to d0.)

I've got some great pictures. I'll try to get them posted later this week.
