This past weekend was beautiful!  I wish it would stay like this through the summer, but I know the sweltering heat it going to get us soon... at that point, I'LL be in the lake too!  

We went to Lake Grapevine with our neighbors on Saturday.  It was heaven :)

Dex and his bestie, Cooper:

On our way!!

They had a blast building castles, throwing sand and rocks, and playing in the water.  We will definitely be going back throughout the summer!

Building a sand castle with Daddy.

My favorite pic!  Look at that face!!

Happy Summertime!!  Yay!!!!

My Little Model

I had some bridal portraits to take on Saturday for a friend at the Arboretum in Dallas, so Sean and I decided to take Dex and they would "play" while I did the photo shoot.  Then we went to meet up with some friends to have dinner!  It was a really nice afternoon.  I specifically brought my little point & shoot along to take a picture of everyone at dinner, and of course, I completely forgot about it until we were headed home.  I was a little sad about that.  *sigh*  

Anyway - as I was finishing up the photo session, Dex and Sean came by to say hi and get ready to leave.  Dex saw me taking pictures of Sarah, and he kept walking up and saying "Take a picture of ME, Mommy!"  That NEVER happens!  So I obliged...

He's starting to look so grown up to me!!  Can't believe what a big boy he's becoming :)

Caterpillar Fun :)

Boys and bugs.... they just go together, don't they??!

Looks to me like this caterpillar is saying "SAVE ME!"  :)

This was St. Patty's Day weekend, and so I had to throw in a couple of pictures of the green pancakes my mom made us!  Looks kinda gross, but tasted amazing!

Dex Painting

I'm going through old pictures... Here are some of Dex when we were painting his room.   I thought some of these were really cute!

He would have painted the whole room, if we'd have let him.

Gotta have that tongue out to concentrate!

My little artist :)

Easter Weekend

We started off on Friday night by coloring Easter eggs.  The one thing I regret about this whole deal is that I only hard boiled 6 eggs!  He could have colored 12 more and never lost interest.  He did such a good job, I was really impressed!  I was worried one of the cups would go flying at some point, but they never did :)

His finished products... complete with glitter!  Can you tell he's proud?

Then on Saturday, we went over to Aunt Linda's house to meet up with out-of-town cousins that we rarely get to see and hunt eggs!

On a mission...

Then of course Easter Sunday, he got his Easter basket...

...had to see if there was candy in each egg (this means shaking each one, apparently)...

...then when he decided there WAS candy in it, he'd open it up, set the candy aside, and go for another one!

He got a shovel and rake to help me in the flower garden.  But of course, first things first, he had to bang them together to make as much noise as possible!

After church, with cousins Brooks & Gentry!  Goofy kids!

Fun, fun weekend!  And the weather was perfect :)  I must say I'm loving this Spring so far!!
