New house

This is what the house looked like Monday night when we got home.

Memorial Weekend

This last weekend we took the boys to the lake, which is always so much fun. Parker was so excited the whole week before to go fishing. He got a new Batman fishing pole, which he slept with every night, just for the lake. Parker also loves to ride the Jet Ski's but this time he was a little nervous. Last year he fell into the water when Daddy tried to lift him onto the boat dock. But his Aunt Kathy talked him into trying it one more time. He loved it until Phillip threw all three of us off into the lake. After that he was done. On our way home on Monday we decided to take the boys to the Abilene Zoo (our goal was to wear them out so they would sleep the whole way home). The Zoo was so much fun. Parker's favorite animal was the lion. Beckham favorite was definitely the giraffes. He was fascinated with them. He was smiling and laughing and clapping his hands at them. It was precious. He actually cried when we walked away. Phillip and I had a good laugh as well as a few bystanders while we were in the aquarium. Beckham is TERRIFIED of the turtles. It was the funniest thing ever. He was pretty much hyperventilating. It was a great trip and we can't wait to do it again.

New House

Here are some pictures of the beginning of our new house. It should be structurally complete August 31 but who knows when it will be completely decorated. I have lots of fun ideas for this house. We are so excited. Parker is even showing interested in the new house. He is finding the whole process very interesting. He really thinks Bob the Builder is building our house. ;) We have explained to Parker on our blue prints where all the rooms are going to be and that him and Beckham are going to have their very own play room. He talks about his play room everyday. he has asked daddy for a new train table to go in there. We shall see if we can find room for one as a welcome to your new home present for the boys. Also he tells me everyday that daddy is going to buy him a park to go in his new backyard. This is true and we are very excited. I know these pictures don't look like much but we will post some fun ones as things move further along. This is what the house looks like tonight tomorrow they will start the foundation!
