happy 4th birthday beckham!

what a great day!! we celebrated this special 4 year old at one of his favorite places 
"paracise pond" (paradise pond). this boy just melts my heart with how excited he gets for birthdays!! he talks about his birthday for about 250 days out of the year! it was a train theme because this boy LOVES trains to say the least!! we had a great time with his friends from his 3 year old class, cade, tatum, grant, noah, caden, and hannah. his best friends in his class this year are tanner, michael, and quinn. 

on his actual birthday, rhett took off and we spent the day at legoland and eating all the things this boy loves: donuts, pizza, and more pizza!!!! he sure is growing up fast!! he also got a fire station lego set and daddy decided to superglue it together because the boy loves to "play" with it so much and he can't understand why it keeps falling apart. gotta love him!! some of beckham's favorite things this year are TRAINS, legos, legoland, snuggling, playing fighter jets with daddy, playing with our new brother brooks and court, watching paw patrol, and going to school. he also LOVES church - he tells us what he learned each week without any prompting! :) love that he is learning and seeking God already!

YES day - when mommy says YES to everything. so, the boys picked legoland, sea life, ice cream BEFORE lunch, and lots of fun. it was a great day!! 

new mexico summer 2013

we took a week long trip to new mexico with nanny and grandad during the hottest part of the summer and it was soooooo nice to be in such a beautiful place. it was nice and cool and just the perfect getaway for us. brooks was 10 weeks old and a champ!! the boys had so much fun fishing, hiking, riding the gondola up the mountain, riding down the mountain on inter tubes. we will definitely go back. i sure wish texas had cool weather in the summer - such a nice break.
feeding nanny and grandad's fish

summer of 2013

whew! having 3 boys 5 and under is a blast! but it is a lot of work!! thank goodness for great grandparents that are so helpful!! the "bigs" (court and beckham) are AMAZING big brothers!! they love to hold him, try to make him laugh, and want to know where he is at all times. since we are trying to figure out how to do life with 3, our summer was full of swimming lessons, vbs, bowling, swimming at mimi & pop's house, and a trip to new mexico at the end of the summer. it was a whirlwind with not much sleep - but oh so fun!
in june, rhett and his dad randal, lived out a dream - driving nascars! they had a blast. it was really hot and they got to drive really fast. the bigs loved watching them go around the track. little bitty stayed home with mimi - it was way too hot for him. 

 we watched one of our favorite movies as a family of five - despicable me 2 - oh the boys laughed so hard - and brooks slept right thru it. oh to be that little again. 

how cute is this little bitty?? 
how who wouldn't enjoy the 4th of july like this??? :)
and happy birthday to the best daddy in the world!

here are some of our family pics with our new little addition. love these 3 boys

 i love going on dates with my big. he wanted to dress up and wear a tie and wanted me to wear a dress. loved this day - gotta soak up as much of him as i can. 
 fun at a splash park not far from mimi's house. 
 yes - i have crazy hair and no one knows why. grandad calls me lightning. 
 fun magic show at the library with friends
