Weekend in Houston

So I'm planning a weekend trip to Houston for two of my sisters and Carter Man of course. We are going to go to the Downtown Houston Aquarium because Heather and Carter are in love with fish, and we definitely want to keep the both of them happy. LOL..No really, it's supposed to be a really neat aquarium. We are staying in a lovely hotel downtown.  I was also thinking we could go to Ikea and try to find some other fun places to shop. We will also be doing lots of eating of course. :-)  I want to find a fondu restaurant because I have never eaten at one and I hear they are really cool.  Casey is not coming but I know that he is going to enjoy some study time and some man only time, but we are going to miss him.  I'm also a little worried about navigating around Houston by myself, but I'm sure we will manage. I just need to make sure that I have a good Atlas with me.  I have printed directions to several places, so hopefully that will help me not get SOOO lost. LOL

On another note, it seems that we have conquered the "big boy bed". Carter simply loves going to his big boy bed each night to read a Bible story, and it is precious.  It was much easier than when I tried it a few months ago. He just needed a little maturing.  So, now I can begin to get baby J's room together.  We are going to paint a mural, so I will be sure to take pictures when it is all finished and put them up.  

Well, I better run. I have physical therapy this morning and then got to run home and pack a few things for C and me. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

My Wedding Dress

Kelly over at Kelly's Corner is having a show us your wedding dress Friday, so I figured for old time's sake I would put up a few pictures from that wonderful life-changing day when my best friend became my husband.  

It was a little warm in the church on that June evening as I'm sure you can tell. lol

I believe my favorite part of the wedding were the gorgeous flowers everywhere!

And here is one of my bridal portraits.

Now I'm feeling quite nostalgic from all the memories of that day. Life is so very different now
three years down the road and one and a half children later. But marriage gets better and better.
My mom and dad have been married for 27 years and that's what she tells me all the time. Hope
that everyone has a wonderful weekend. I am off to a date night with my hubby.

The Summer is Flying By

Carter was up really early this morning, and I just laid him down for a nap, so I figured I could blog and then get a little nap in.  I'm in my third trimester now, so naps are quite often a necessity.  I am 29 1/2 weeks right now and everything is looking good. I do have a lot of contractions, but they don't seem to be causing any harm, so that is wonderful.  I have been going to physical therapy twice a week, which is quite comical as you might imagine. Big Kahuna waddling into therapy with all the other fit and thin clients is quite a site.  I am looking pretty big these days and my belly button is beginning to push it's way out. I'm sure you all wanted to know that right? LOL.  Well, it's my blog and I can say what I want to say. hehehe

Carter is doing so well these days. He is such a joy. We have had to tighten up on our discipline with him, but it is really paying off. He is becoming very obedient and sweet. I will take a few more just like him. LOL  We have started having Bible time with him every night as our schedule allows and he just loves it. He loves to pray too. He puts his little hand in ours and while we are praying he promptly says "ahhhmeeen" and takes his hands away.  Then he gives them back and we pray a little more and then "ahhhhmeeen." It is pretty cute stuff.

Casey is on break from Seminary this summer and that has been very nice. We have been having some good quality time together. I'm going to be spoiled and then he will go back to school. What a bummer!! I will have a new little one to keep me busy or should I saw busier.  

We are having VBS at our church this week and it is going so well. We have had a ton of kids and it has been a great blessing. I pray that the Lord is using us to show them their need of a savior, even at such a young age. I am in charge of the oldest group's crafts (10-12 y/o) so that has been fun and busy.  I did get the room with the best AC so that has been very nice. I guess they know that "preggo" aka "big kahuna" needs to be cool. LOL

Here is the baby nursery for VBS


Here is the opening assembly with all the kids


My Craft Room

The Space Station

Here I am trying to talk and no one is listening. LOL

So, I think I am ready for that nap now. Off I go. Hope everyone is having a wonderful, relaxing, 100 degree heat FREE summer. LOL
