Momo's Surprise B-Day Lunch

In June we celebrated Momo's birthday (Jon's grandmother) with a surprise lunch at Uncle Julio's in Allen. She had no idea that this was planned and it was a huge surprise to her.

We had a real nice turnout. Four of her five children, most of her grandchildren and several of her great-grandchildren came to celebrate this special day.

~We all missed the few of you that couldn't make it. Uncle Victor, Steven and Anthony~

We are so glad to have been a part of this and we have a ton of pictures to look back on to remember the day.

Father's Day

We had a great day on Father's Day except for the fact that my step dad was horribly sick, so we didn't get to see him. That was a total bummer!!! We decided that we would take him out for dinner once he got to feeling better.

Jim~ We love you so much! You are an absolute blessing to not only my mom but to myself and my family. We love you more then you will ever know and you mean the world to us!!! :)

And Happy Father's Day to my wonderful husband. I feel so lucky that you are such a fabulous husband and even a better father. Our boys think the world of you and you are such a role model for them. Thank you for everything you do and we love you so very much!

Also, Happy Father's Day to Gary, my father in law. We love you so much and we hope that you enjoyed your day with us.

The kids made Jon some really neat things. They love their daddy so much!

White Rock Bike Ride

I finally convinced Jon that bike riding is fun!!! Jared, however, is not fully convinced. It might have been a better experience for him if we didn't have to stop 10 times to air up my front tire. :)

Thankfully my wonderful hubby brought the air pump or we would have been completely out of luck. LOL! I know they make the small air pumps that you can carry in your backpack, however, we had the good old fashioned air pump. Check out the 2nd picture... I just realized you can see where Jon had rigged it to his bike. :) Very funny!

Jake was with his Grandma & Popo Gary, so we headed over to White Rock Lake for a bike ride. It was an exhausting 14 miles but for the most part we had a great time. We came across this mommy duck and her babies and it was so cute. So of course, we had to stop and get some pic's.

He did it again!

Again, I find myself trying to play catch up... :) I could not leave this event out though. Jon and I are so happy that Jared cares so much about school. And having such a wonderful teacher was an added bonus. :) We love you Mrs. Baldwin!!!

We are SO proud of Jared for getting straight A's again this year. What a huge accomplishment. We love you so much Jared and we are truly blessed to be your parents.

Ta Da!
