Sleepover @ The Turner's

Monday, June 27, 2011
Today Steel & Case asked Abram & Asher to sleepover!  They were so EXCITED!!  Abram did hesitate a little when he thought about us being sad that he'd be gone.  He's so sweet and thoughtful!  He got a little teary thinking he'd miss us too much and said he wanted to go but didn't want to stay the night.  We talked about it and he decided to go try it out.  Asher, on the other hand, was ready!  No hesitation and, in fact, when we joked that he couldn't go he got loud and said "Yes, I can!!" and playfully punched Aaron!  He's such a little dude! ;)  

Candi sent me some pics of their activities...
That evening they went to the neighbor's to swim with Brylee.

Then they got in their PJs and rode the mule!

The next day they went to Hide-A-Way to swim & play on the beach.

I know they had a blast and I never got that call saying "Come get me!" so everything went well and my babies are officially BIG!! :( 
I'm glad they had fun and Aaron and I got to have a nice quiet dinner and watch a movie at home which we NEVER do!  Usually if we don't have our kiddos it's because we have plans and are going out.  It was nice to just relax and enjoy being home together. Thanks Sam & Candi! :)
Our YUMMY Dinner!!!

Splash Kingdom

This summer we got season passes to Splash Kingdom! We plan on spending many of these HOT East Texas days keeping cool while slippin' & slidin' down the Water Slides, splishin' & splashin' around the Kids Castle, ridin' the waves in the Wave Pool and relaxin' on the Lazy River! FuN times!!! We've already enjoyed a couple of fun days there...

Swimming Lessons

This year both of the boys took swim lessons with Mrs. Katherine.  She was so great!  They are swimming like fish!  In the past we have just worked with them ourselves but this summer I wanted to feel more confident with Asher since he is such a daredevil.  It was worth it because they both learned so much and I can relax a little while at the pool!  YaY!!  I'm so proud of you both!

Summertime = SLEEPOVERS!!!

Three in one week to be exact!!! First we had Steel & Case spend the night after our T-Ball game on Friday night. They came home with us and we ordered pizza, did some pasture boarding/4-wheelin', played, watched movies, ate homemade cookies and camped-out in the game room!

Saturday we woke-up played some more, made cinnamon rolls... and later went swimming!  
Cason joined us for some fun in the sun!
Later that evening Candi picked up the boys and I took Cason home. When I did Conleigh begged to go home with Aunt Sugar! I couldn't stand to see her upset so they both came home with us for another sleepover! Mind you, Aaron is at work through it all! ;) They were great and everyone slept good through both slumber parties!
On Tuesday after the boys swim lesson Kelly & I took all the boys to Splash Kingdom. When they dropped us off at our house Abram asked if Barrett could stay the night.  Of Course! What's one more sweet little boy!?! They did great!  Played hard, ate a bunch of junk (a sleepover requirement!), watched movies, stayed up late and slept GREAT!! We had the sleepover standard... cookies at night and cinnamon rolls the next morning! We were all so proud of Barrett! This was his first night to spend the night with a friend and he did it! YaY!  Psst.. Again, Aaron was at work! Uh, SuperMoM!?! I think so! ;)

 They had some fun in the sun, too!
