Jason and I snapped this photo celebrating our eleven years married! He surprised me with a night out of tapas and sips around town with a special rooftop getaway for the weekend. This past month has been full of surprises and fun! This past month, we did the following...
Emily's family typically celebrates a family reunion each year at Mimi and Grandpa's lake house, but Covid put a damper on things last year. This year, with everyone vaccinated, the family got to get together and enjoy Uncle Larry's Fish Fry, Aunt El's Southern BBQ and Jess & Em's Breakfast Bonanza while spending time laughing, playing giant jenga, waterfalls, wave runners, tubing, fishing and more. It was so great to get the little second cousins together. Emily set up a tie dye event so we have memories of the "After Covid Fam Reunion."
The fam bam also took a trip to the science museum and learned about sensory fun that included light objects, stacking un-level rocks and how shadows work. Cullen loved playing with the water objects and learning about different sounds from the drums to trumpets. However, his favorite part was the aircrafts and airplanes. Future pilot, maybe? We will support whatever his dream is and ensure he has the opportunity to learn about differing ways to succeed at a happy life.
Conner (Jackie's son) turned FIVE this month so we had to dino safari and dig up dinosaur bones, explore what dinosaurs are and what happened to them. Although hot, we had a blast and Cullen got his first dinosaur toy. Now every chance he gets it is time to "ROAR."
All in all, it's be a great summer so far. For the upcoming months, we've got plans for more lake trips and ranch expeditions... perhaps it's time to teach Cullens how to frog hunt? Feed a baby cow? Climb a mountain? ... Maybe all three?
