In May, we said goodbye to our first house, where we lived for seven years. I know that's not long considering that most people spend decades in the same house, but this being our first, it was really bittersweet. We became a family in that house - in ways, it feels like we just got settled, and in others, it feels like we were there for much longer than 7 years.

We spent Mother's Day weekend in San Antonio with my family. Vacationing with four kids under four takes a bit more prep and planning, but it was worth the effort, and everyone had a great time. We spent the mornings exploring, afternoons napping at the hotel, and evenings back out for dinner. We even took turns staying with the kids so that we could spend some time at the Riverwalk after bed time - just one of the perks of traveling with family :)
When you have a brother, life sometimes looks like this ...No, I don't have one, but if you've met my sweet cousin, Adam, you know that I got to experience a little of what brothers are like :)
Just after Tink's birthday, R took her to see Toy Story on Ice (aka Story Story). Because Toy Story was her first full-length movie and she's seen it a dozen times, she LOVED watching it be played out live. Of course, Jessie had to come along! They had a great evening, and she's asked several times if they can go again (which I'm sure her Daddy will be happy to oblige.)
