The Rodeo

The Austin Rodeo came to town in March, and we thought we would take Call to see the animals. He is still way to young to know what is going on, but we went anyway. He really didn't know what to think of all of it, as we drug him around to look at all the animals. We had a good time and it was a beautiful day!

This is his face as we walked through the livestock area. He wasn't too sure about the cow's mooing and the horses neighing!

Here are the cows he was watching.
Collier really enjoys reading books, especially the ones about animals. I thought he would like to see what the real ones looked like and the sounds they make. Maybe next year he will have a good time enjoying the animals and not give them dirty looks.

Waking Up

The other day, this is how I found Collier after he woke up from his nap! He was waiting for me to come and get him. I thought it was too cute. I can't believe he is growing up so fast.

He thinks he is SOO BIG!

Playdate with my RR Friends!

A couple of weeks ago, some of my friends from high school, were able to get together on a Friday, for a playdate. Call and I went over to Shelly's house, where we were joined by Liz and Emery, Jenny, and Katie. Liz made lasagna, I brought salad, Jenny brought bread, and Katie brought dessert. It was a yummy feast. We also had a new addition to the group! Shelly had Baby Jasper, the last Friday in February. We were able to spend some time with Shelly and her boys, along with Emery. It was so wonderful to be among my girlfriends and their children, hanging out, and watching our kids play together. We have vowed to try and get together once a month from now on. I am so blessed to have these girls for my friends. It is so neat that we continue to share our lives with each other as we get older. Hopefully, our children will be blessed with friendships with each other as they grow up together!

Hypnobirthing Reunion

Some of you know, that Collier's birth story included a natural delivery. Yes, I was crazy and opted out of having the epidural!! We had an awesome experience, and would not have been able to have that experience, without attending a birthing class. One of my friends, had her baby using the hypnobirthing technique, which intrigued me as well. Adam and I took a class back in July to prepare us for a natural delivery. At the end of February, our instructor hosted a reunion. It was fun to meet up with the other couple in our class and meet their baby. We also enjoyed a neck and shoulder massage, which was greatly needed, and much appreciated!

Here was the group, that included 2 different classes. Katherine, the pretty blonde in the back, was our instructor.
