Birthday Surprises

We had the best surprise a few weeks ago at our house!  My mom and dad showed up on my doorstep and surprised us!  My dad had to come to Houston for work so my mom came with him and then she stayed an extra week and was here to celebrate my birthday!  It was so much fun having them in town!

We went to Chuy's for lunch on my birthday and ended up getting drenched!  It rained so much!

My back yard looked like a swamp (and still smells like one)

My boys spoiled me all week!  They baked and decorated me a cake!  It had LOTS of sprinkles :)

Jason took me on a date a few days after my birthday.  He said we were doubling with Jordan and Shanelle at Dave & Busters but it ended up being a surprise party with friends!

This was such a yummy cake!  One layer was german chocolate and the other was cookies and cream.

Dave & Busters is an adult "Chuck E  Cheese".  We had a lot of fun and when you get this group together you know there will be a lot of competition!

Parker's First Day of School

I can't believe Parker is old enough to be in Kindergarten!  He is enjoying school and LOVES to ride the school bus.

 Poor Brandon is lost without his friend at home.  Yesterday Brandon slept in and missed saying by to Parker and when he woke up and realized that Parker was gone he started bawling!  3:15 can't get here fast enough for Brandon.  He bear hugs Parker every day as soon as he sees him!

Parker got a black eye the first week of school.  He was playing football with jason and was running to catch the ball and didn't watch where is was going and ran straight into a door knob.

BYU Game in Austin

Last weekend we drove to Austin with some friends for the BYU vs Texas football game.  The night before we left Aimee and I did our nails (and Eden's) for the game.

We woke up bright and early and headed to Rudy's BBQ for breakfast tacos before getting on the road.

We got to Austin a little early so we decided to take the kids bowling before the game started.  I officially beat Jason bowling for the first time in my entire life.  It just happened to be when Jason had a horrible game and I had a great game but I was proud of beating him. 

After bowling we headed to Trudy's for stuffed avocados.  This is the one place we have to eat at every time we go to Austin.  It is by far the best Tex Mex in Texas and the best thing you will ever eat!

The Texas stadium is HUGE!

Eden was my buddy at the game.  Don't you think I need a little Blondie like her?!

What a great game.  BYU definitely deserved the win!

And since we all know Siri is pretty smart you should ask her who her favorite college football team is! Her answer is great!

We spent the night in Round Rock and woke up early to get some Round Rock donuts!  Let's be honest--we go to Austin for the AMAZING food!

After donuts we headed back to the hotel to swim.  Well, the boys swam and the girls enjoyed watching the chaos.

We checked out and headed to Torchy's Taco's for lunch.  I've head great reviews about Torchy's but had never tried it before our trip to Austin.  I ordered the queso and the Chipotle shrimp tacos.  YUMMO!  Why does Austin have all the great food?!
