So, this weekend we went to Burnet...again...and we will be there even again in two weeks. But, enough of our travel agenda...
We went this weekend because Brandon had an awards ceremony, it was Jennifer's 26th birthday and Wyatt and I were planning on picking up some furniture. All got accomplished but one...no furniture. I changed my mind, go figure! ;)
Friday, Jen and I left with the kids. We got about 2/3rds the way there when sunshine woke up...
She was so happy..to see me, of course! It made for a really good trip. Between Karlie sleeping and Kaden enjoying the DVD screen/player from MeMaw and PePaw, the trip seemed really...quiet.
We made it to Burnet around 3...Our husbands followed around 9...someone has to work a full day :) AND THE FUN BEGINS...
Brandon built a 150 foot slipping slide down a hill into a lake by the house. This picture is him going down the crazy huge slide. TOO FUN! What a way to say goodbye to the last few days of his senior year!
Saturday was spent in the great outdoors! MeMaw bought the cutest little pool, which PePaw, Wyatt and I blew up! The inflator we had did not do a thing! Talk about being light headed! Karlie was not a huge fan of playing alone, in my lap is the closest she got to the water...Kaden on the other hand was a fish. He played till I literally picked him up and took him out...then he ate and fell asleep. He plays hard. Go hard or go home, as Brandon says.
One of my favorite things to do in Burnet is go to the Epicenter. My dad has an overwhelming gift of ministry. He is without a doubt the best speaker I have ever heard. If you are longing for a spiritual reconnection, to go "deeper" in the Word, or to just be in the presence of our Father, it is worth a trip to the Hill Country. I know a great Bed and Breakfast if your interested :) Really.
One of my hobbies is to buy things for my niece and nephew. Kaden usually gets trucks, colors, noise makers etc...Karlie gets girlie things. Take for instance, this precious pink dress...just one of her many summer dresses from aunt Kyla. Jen thinks this is too girlie...I say, just wait till I get her in ballet! Black leotard and pink tights here we come!
He looked so cute in his hat I had to take the photo op! Since Kaden wouldn't do it without Brandon, we all got a shot! Yes, Brandon's shirt says UMHB...he is following his sister and brother in law...B will soon be a Crusader. We are so proud of him. He had to make a huge decision on where to play baseball in college...he felt God moving him to Belton. We will be there to cheer him on at games...you will be there too...just a couple days later and as a blog reader not a spectator...unless you want to join!?!
At Brandon's awards ceremony we were all there...even my MeMe. See the line? MeMe, mom to MeMaw; MeMaw, mom to Jen; and Jen, mom to Karlie...I am just the aunt!
Brandon is the reigning MVP and now add to that Offensive (and Defensive) MVP...do we question his talent? Gotta love him!
My family is my world...cant you tell?
This week's prayer request:
To fill my flesh with what I fill my soul...God's love is abundant. He is all we need.
