Elmo Sprinkler

A couple of weeks ago I bought this really cute Elmo sprinkler mat for the girls. Since they both love Elmo I assumed they would like it. Boy was I wrong!!!! They HATED it! They both screamed the entire time. I have attached proof below. Trey & I were laughing the whole time! Our neighbors probably thought we were torturing them in the backyard.

Here is what we have been up to lately:

Playing in the toy bucket

..and in the toy boxes

Daddy surprised the girls with a Disney Princess tent

They LOVE it! They play in there and sometimes they just lay down and watch tv!

Mallory really likes the mesh windows.

That about sums it up. We are in the process of ordering the girls a swing set for outside. I don't know what has gotten into Trey lately but he is all about buying this stuff. I wanted to get them a swing set on Alyssa's birthday but he didn't want to then. Oh well, they will have a few months to enjoy it! We leave 2 weeks from today for the beach! I am SO excited!!!! We are actually staying in Ruston this weekend and going to church! I am glad we can just stay put for a weekend because the next 3 weekends we will be traveling.

Peach Festival

Mallory watched part of the parade from Daddy's shoulders

So did Alyssa

The girls caught these cool glasses at the parade

Cody, Tonya & Kamryn watched the parade with us

Bryan & Christine came in for a wedding so they went to the festival with us

I thought I would share some pictures from the peach festival last weekend. We all really enjoyed it! Last Sunday was Trey's last time to play at Broadmoor. It was bittersweet. They presented us with some gifts, a really sweet farewell speech and the congregation prayed for us. While we are excited to see what God has in store for us in Ruston, it was sad to leave the church family we knew in Shreveport.

We had a wonderful time in Dallas. We shopped, golfed, and ate A LOT!!! We were able to visit with friends and spend time together. Our hotel was nice. They gave out warm chocolate chip cookies that were wonderful! Our only complaint was last night there was a high school volleyball team staying in the rooms next to us and were SO loud from 1-3 am. Trey called the front desk twice then finally had to go down there. It was not a good night for sleep but we got our room free! Texas De Brazil last night was AMAZING! My favorite was the salad bar and of course Trey's favorite was all of the meat. We were so full that we could not go and play putt-putt like we had planned.

So, I have been recording the TV show Baby Borrowers. I just had a chance to watch the first episode. Have any of you seen this show? All I can say is NO WAY MAN! There is no way I could watch these kids NOT take care of my children. I would be marching over there every few minutes. Anyway, I just had to share that.
