Life Lately

March 27th, 2016 March went by so fast.  Here’s a quick update on what’s been going on… On March 9th, Sumner got his braces off.  This was a BIG deal! The transformation that has taken place is amazing! The orthodontist sent him home with this fun poster and lots of gooey candy he hasn’t been allowed to eat since the braces went on. Photo on left= before braces. Photo on right= after braces. Period of time between the 2 photos= 2 years. Sadie got her first cut at the groomers. If it’s possible, her hair was even softer and fluffier than before. Adam and I...

Jonah’s Science Experiment

January 21st, 2016 Jonah and Adam have been working on a Balloon Race Car for Jonah’s Physical Science Class.  The rules were that it could only move using one balloon, and had to be made out of products you could easily find in your house.  They had so much fun with this!  They had a couple different versions for the car, but in the end the one made out of an Optimus Prime mask, back wheels out of CDs, and a hidden ping pong ball for the front wheel won out.  Jonah ended up taking second place in the race, losing by a fraction of an inch.  It didn’t matter though, he had too...

San Antonio Riverwalk

March 8th, 2015 Before heading back home on Sunday, we visited the Alamo and walked the San Antonio Riverwalk.  The weather was not cooperative on this day with heavy downpours off and on all afternoon.  That, paired with the fact that photos are not allowed inside the Alamo buildings, prevented me from getting many photos there.  A break in the rain after lunch allowed me to get some photos of our walk along the Riverwalk.  Such a pretty place! Before checking out of the hotel, grandma, grandpa and the boys hit the basketball court to shoot a few hoops. Grandma showed them all how it is...

A Branson Christmas

December 26th- 29th, 2014 We headed up to Branson, MO, the day after Christmas to meet up with the Williams side (Minus Cory & Valli and their boys).  As we were all planning out Christmas this year, I had the idea to change things up a bit and celebrate in Branson since the boys had never been before and it was a location everyone would enjoy.  We arrived Friday evening, just in time for supper.  The next 2 days were spent at Silver Dollar City.  The weather was definitely cold but we enjoyed being at the park during the holidays and seeing all of the special Christmas...
