The last time we went to Holliday, we missed out on seeing some of our favorite people: Casey, Amie, Kayleigh, Emily and Nattie! So, Crockett, Bowen and I decided to make a quick trip to see them all and help CELEBRATE Emily's 8th birthday. I was quite apprehensive about making the drive with Bowen, all by myself. He completely surprised me and made it 2 hours before we had to stop, on the way there and the way home! Go Bowen! Once we got to Holliday, Casey, Amie and the girls came by Grandmaw's to visit and meet Bowen. Crockett was SUPER EXCITED to see them. They always have the best time together! I couldn't believe how each one of them had grown. After a quick visit, they had to leave and get ready for the party. Shortly after they left, Marla and Kylee came by. Marla couldn't believe how much Bowen had grown! He has changed A LOT since the last time we visited! While they were there, it started POURING! It was so windy and a little scary, but it finally blew over. We were so glad to have such great company! As soon as they left, we had to get ready for the PARTY! It was at First Baptist in Holliday in the Family Life Center, so luckily, we didn't have far to go! Crockett was excited to get there and ran right in and began playing. They had tattoos, jump ropes, basketballs and footballs. But first, PIZZA! All they kids ate and then played some more. Crockett kept using the jump rope as a lasso. He said he was "going to get the cows at the Parish" :) He also had a great time chasing all the older girls. I am sure it is a sign of things to come! HA! Emily had a great time opening all her gifts. She got LOTS of fun things! Instead of a cake, she had cupcakes! They were yummy! She even had a cupcake pinata to match! The kids all had so much fun getting candy, eating cupcakes, and running around. It was a great time to catch up with the girls and Mimi, who made the drive from Oklahoma. Crockett was thrilled to see her and greeted her with a BIG hug and kiss! We had a great time and are so glad we made the trip for the special day. Happy 8th Birthday, Emily Jane!

I can't believe my sweet baby is 2 months old already! The past 2 months have gone by in a flash, or maybe a blur :) Bowen is growing like a weed and is so chunky and squishy right now. I love it. I love him.

After a long, hot Lubbock summer, we decided it was time to get away. So, on Thursday, Monica and I loaded Crockett, Braidy, Quin and Bowen in the car (along with a TON of other stuff) and we headed South toward Poppa and JJ's house. Chris and Ryan came too, they just started their trip several hours later than us. WHo can blame them for wanting to drive by themselves!?! The boys were so great in the car. They played, slept, watched a movie and made it about 5 hours before they got really restless. We stopped in Kerrville to grab a bite to eat at Cracker Barrel and rest for a bit. When it was time to go, we looked outside and it was POURING! We all got to run in the rain, which the boys loved. By the time Mon and I got some gas, a treat for the boys and Starbucks for us, it had stopped raining... Thank goodness! We were so glad to FINALLY make it to Poppa's house! The boys played for a little while and then we were ready for bed because we had a BIG, FUN day ahead of us! On Friday, the boys were so excited to run around with Poppa. By the time Chris, Bowen and I got going (every night is a long night with my sweet baby :) Crockett, Braidy and Quin had helped Poppa feed the deer and check the water in the pool. They really wanted to get in, but before we could get IN the pool, we went fishing! The boys were so excited to fish, but when we got there, it was the daddy's and Poppa that ended up doing most of the fishing. The boys were perfectly content playing amongst the trees, dirt and rocks. The Curry boys LOVED playing with the worms too... Not Crockett. Not so much. Afraid he got that from me. Maybe one day he will be a worm boy! After not so much luck fishing, and a couple of wasp bites for Uncle Ryan :( we headed home. Hot and sweaty. Now it was time for the pool!
