Alpacas and Such

We seem to constantly be on the go - but I guess that's a good thing...although that means the laundry piles up and the house is never organized and my car is always cluttered...details, details....right?


We enjoyed checking out the Alpaca show!

Parks, Parks, and More Parks! 

The weather has been pretty we've made plenty of trips to various parks.  The kids love it - and it's a great way to tire them out!

We were glad to have Grandma and Grandpa Bissell stay with us for the week while the kids were on Spring Break.  They made lots of trips to the parks and hiked around the neighborhood.  It was great having my parents here to help out and seeing them enjoy time with the little ones.  

We went and cheered on the Horned Frogs at a baseball game - Go Frogs!

The first dandelion wish for my little girl!  LOVE!

Bryce Gets Tubes In His Ears

Little guy got tubes put in his ears - he was a little champ thru it.  We were home by 11am the day of his surgery and besides being a little groggy - he was perfectly fine.   It was certainly nice to see all the new upgrades at Cook Children's hospital - fancy schmancy!

Post surgery - drinking some juice - and totally drugged into a stupor. :)

Boopas 5K

I was thrilled that we had so many friends join us for the Boopas 5K.  This is one of my favorite events!  The proceeds from the run go to the Down Syndrome Partnership of North Texas.  Plus - the first year that they did this run, I was pregnant with Brianne and we had just found out that she had Down syndrome - so we walked over and it was our first event with the Partnership where I met some of the other families. Along the race route they put out the poster pics of our kiddos and the DS fact signs along the route - so people that are not familiar with Down syndrome are introduced to some neat information and get to see the beautiful smiling faces of individuals with Down syndrome - love this method of spreading awareness!  Plus - registration includes a free dozen it's a pretty sweet and delicious deal!  

Some of our team!  Thanks so much to everyone for coming out on this chilly wet day!!

First Trip on the Fort Worth Miniature Train!

We ventured out for our first trip on the Ft Worth miniature train - and had a blast!

Totally busted by this picture...when my parents were in town I'd told them 'don't give the kids popcorn'...and then the very next weekend I turn around and try this buttery treat with them.  :)

St. Patty's Day Parade

We had front row seats for the St. Patty's Day parade in the Stockyards!
