3rd grade, WHAT?!?

Hudson's first day of 3rd grade was on Monday, August 22nd.  He was so excited because he got the teacher he has wanted for 2 years now, Mr. Boatman.  He has Mr. Boatman for math and science and goes to Ms. Turner for language arts and social studies.  He has several good friends in his class and had an all around great first day!!  He's ready to rock 3rd grade, but Mommy would be ok if we found a way to pause time!!

9 year pics

We had Hudson's 9 year pictures taken on August 14th at Flippen Park in Dallas.  They turned out great!!  Love this boy!!

Number 9!!!!

I think I'm still in denial, but Hudson turned NINE on August 13th!!  His birthday fell on a Saturday this year, and he wanted a completely different kind of birthday than in years past.  It could not have been more fun!!  We all had a great day celebrating Hudson in his last year as a single digit!
Here's the birthday boy before heading out to pick up his friends.

 He is VERY into music these days, so he got an iPod Nano...he was beyond excited!
 After breakfast and opening gifts, we picked up 7 of his friends and headed to Main Event for a few games and laser tag!

 The whole gang!

 After Main Event, we went to Studio Movie grill to see Pete's Dragon and have lunch.
 After the movie, we went to Braum's for ice cream before taking all of the boys home.  They all had a blast and Kelly and I were beat!  Ha! That night, he requested his favorite meal...steak, baked potatoes, Caesar salad, and rolls.  
 Holden had already eaten dinner by the time we finally got everything ready, but he was happy to have a few bites of steak before bed!
 Instead of a cake, Hudson asked Noni to make him her famous cherry pie for dessert.  Yummy!

We had an awesome day celebrating our 9 year old!!!  Love him more than he'll ever know!!

San Antonio 2016

We went to San Antonio on June 25th for a few days and had an awesome time!  We enjoyed eating at our favorite restaurants, spending one day at Sea World, one day at Acquatica, and going to the Riverwalk!

 The only picture I got at Sea World...chasing after Holden is not for the faint of heart!  :)

 Ice cream after dinner on the Riverwalk...yummy!

Destin 2016

We went to Destin the week of June 4th this year and had a blast as always.  Holden absolutely loved the ocean...could.not.get.enough!  Hudson and Daddy went on several fishing trips and Hudson fell in love with it!  I only got a few pictures this year because Holden is always on the go, but here are a few.


Ahh...my happy place!
