january updates

i know, boring title, right?!? My creative juices are shut off! I still haven't shared our fun adventures from last weekend so I need to catch up to speed!!

Our crew headed to Pilot Point, tx for my cousin's wedding. It was a beautiful setting at a lodge on a lake. The kids were so pumped up to see all their cousins and have a dance party. Kennedy had been practicing all week so she was more than ready.
It was a perfect evening of weather and good times. I didn't bring my camera into the ceremony so no pics from there. Here is one from before we left for the ceremony:
the next morning, lance, kids and my mom got to ride horses at the lodge where we stayed. It was very chilly and I was worried about how we would manage an hour ride, but once we got going, it warmed up. The kids loved it and kennedy talked non stop to our horse, Bailey. ;) Our tour guide even told me that i have a talker on my hands!! You think!?

AFter horseback riding, we got to meet up with my dear friend, Shannon Russell, (she was visiting her parents who live outside of dallas) who lives in knoxville but is about to move again to Washington (her husband is a college football coach). I think she is ready to stay put for a while! Anyway, her son, hayden, was big buds with Landon when they lived in Ruston and they picked up right where they left off. It was so cute and they had a blast at Legoland in Grapevine. Landon has been into legos since Christmas so i knew he would love it. It was extremely crowded and that drove me nuts. But the kids had fun.

Kennedy on the karaoke stage...she wouldn't get off!

after legoland, we headed over to Great Wolf Lodge to spend the night there. I have been wanting to go and it is really a neat place. We swam till it closed and waited in line when it opened back up the next morning! The kids loved all of it! Water was pretty chilly but other than that, pretty enjoyable.

We left after lunch and I knew the kids were exhausted from the past two days. Kennedy slept all the way from Dallas until we rolled into Shreveport and she never naps in the car!

The rest of our week has been low key and pretty enjoyable. This weekend has been a lazy one too! So, i need to get back to the couch to watch some football and figure out which body back meal i am going to cook for dinner!
