Beach Trip 2012

 We just got back from a great trip to Port Aransas with the DeWitts.  This year even Westin was able to join in on on the beach fun.
 Reed, William, Westin and Jamie

 William boogie boarded non-stop for 2 and a half days a the beach.  He couldn't get enough. 
William and his buddy Reed

 I can't even imagine how many times Trey pulled William out to the waves.  It was over and over...

Schlitterbahn - Papa Tom and MiMi

Papa, MiMi and Kate joined us for a full day of Schlitterbahn.  We stayed the whole day and had a great time.  We even covered all three sections. William rode the Master Blaster and Dragon's Revenge for the first time with me while Kate rode it with Papa Tom. We all got to ride the new river with rapids.  Westin was such a trooper.  He and MiMi hung out at the kid pool while we rode some of the bigger rides.  William also got to ride the Schlitterbahn bus for the first time.  He has wanted to do this for awhile :)  Some of my group pictures will not let me rotate them so you will just have to turn your head!  :)

Baby to Big Boy -Westin's First Haircut

 Westin is now 21 months old and he just got his first haircut.  Trey has been wanting to get this done for quite a while, and I finally gave in after a lady told Trey how pretty his little girl was. 
 Westin was such a big boy! He didn't cry at all throughout the whole process.  It helped that Thomas the Train was on the TV and he got to sit in the fun airplane. 
 He also had a cheering squad for the event.  Papa Tom, MiMi, Aunt Shay and Caroline.
 Mr. Handsome
 One happy dad!
All smiles after the first haircut!  This was a sad milestone for me.  I wasn't interested in letting Westin grow-up.  Oh well, he will still be a baby to me.

Random Summer Pics

 We have also spent several evenings at our neighborhood pool.  William insisted I take this picture at just the moment he hit the water.  It took a few tries...
 Westin about to....
 .......splash me!

 Putting the boys to work.  It's nice to have a little help with all the pool gear.

Spaghetti anyone?
Happy Memorial Day!

Last Day of Pre-school

William on his last day of pre-school at Freihite.  He will be going to a school closer to home next year that won't start quite as early and isn't 5 days a week.  We figure he will have 13 years of that 5 day of week thing. 

Schlitterbahn Summer 2012

 We have already made it to Schlitterbahn 3 times and each time it gets a little easier to take both boys.  By the advice of friends I have been able to figure out which areas are easiest to keep both boys safely entertained. 

 William in the car wash. 
 Westin is getting a little braver each day.  I'm not sure if this is good or bad.

 This was after the first trip to Schlitterbahn..pure exhaustion. 
Sleeper #2.  It was a great day.
