Memorial Day Weekend!

In celebration of one of the two Mondays a year that my dad and brother get to close down the feed store, we all met in Oklahoma City to see the Big 12 Baseball Championships.

Here are a few pictures from the games....Chris did a great job.

We caught the end of the OSU Missouri game...

This was the OU Baylor game...

Baylor dugout; we were on the OU side of course!

Bubba at the top of the stadium

just us....

Me and my dad at the game...mom fell asleep- she had taken allergy medicine.

It was a good game- we hadn't been to a baseball game in forever- what a fun way to ring in the summer! Too bad OU didn't go to the finals though!

Sunday we visited a stew cook-off at the Cowboy Hall of Fame.

It was a bit muddy from all the rain, so wearing flip flops wasn't the brightest idea....we had fun though, and the peach cobbler was amazing.

Mom and dad in front of a little water fall there. It was their anniversary weekend. Good thing they love us enough to let us tag along. They have been married for 29 years.

These are just some random pictues that I took on the drive home..it really is beautiful.

We are planning on coming home for the summer on Monday- just 6 short days away. We are looking forward to a wonderful, relaxing summer surrounded by our friends and family! Give us a call if you come our way!

School's Out for Summer!

It is offical - Chris is one third a lawyer. Thank goodness we have a summer to recover from spring finals! Two weeks from today we will be headed back to good ol' Texas for a summer filled with family, friends and fun!

In the middle of finals, we decided to have the study group over for a cookout to celebrate the end of the year and Chris's birthday....we had so much fun. We were pretty amazed that 14 people and two hyper puppies could all be in our tiny house at one time!

The kiddos, Danielle and Katie...

Justin and Jayna...

Clayton, Doug and Katie...

Aaron and his wife- they have 4 kids! We don't know how they do it, and they have the most polite kids ever!

On Chris's actual birthday, the day before his hardest final, he opened a few presents.
These are his hot new shoes from Zappos.com- I wonder if I will get a discount for the plug!

Here is the new suit that my dad bought for him.

Mother's Day weekend we got to take a quick trip home for Jessica's wedding, Chris's b-day party, Mother's Day, and some interviews.

Here is Jessica and Warren- they had a really cute ceremony- we loved the groom's cake! We love weddings and wish them all of the best!

After the wedding we headed out for some BBQ to celebrate Chris's b-day. Brandon came all the way from New Mexico to have dinner with us!

Lynz just lives across the street, so she walked over!

Here is Mamaw with the birthday boy!

Mother's Day was so nice. We all went over to Amarillo to eat at Nanny's favorite resturant, and then we went to visit papaw in the rehabilitation center.

Then we headed over to M2D2's in Canyon to spend the night....
Derek, Chris's brother, and Jacey came up to spend time with mom and dad...

So if you know Chris, then you know he loves his Christmas gift- the new camera.
I had to go to the bathroom really bad, but I was trying to be the supportive wife, so we pulled over for pictures of this train loaded with military gear outside of White Deer for about 20 minutes! It was really neat to see...
