a trip to the donut shop

This morning Jack woke up nice and early and so we decided to take Jack to his first trip to the donut shop!

Jack was in a little mood and wanted to keep on his pajamas with no shoes, oh boy!

                                                           What a tough choice...

                                    Jack ended up picking a buttermilk glazed donut ...yummmmm

And just as soon as we sat down our little friend David popped in the shop and boy did David have something to show us......
You see, he is a smart little cookie who has made friends with the man that makes the donuts.  Every Sunday he comes to the shop, goes up to the door, gives a sweet little knock....
...and out comes his favorite, a smiling Mr. Donut Man and a fresh bag of donut holes! If that isn't the cutest thing I have ever seen!?! I was so happy to have my camera and can't wait to send Sarah these pictures of David and his secret donut shop hook up!

                                             I think we might just have to come back again!


Over the top train and Pool splashin in Sienna

                   Yesterday we had the pleasure of attending two of Jacks friends birthday parties!

First up was our neighbor William who turned 2. He had a Two Two Train Party at 9: 30 am to help beat the heat. Johanna out did herself yet again! Jack had a ball and jumped from one activity to the next, those three hours went by so fast ...and who doesn't love snow cones and cake for breakfast?!

Wes came by to walk with us over to the party and these boys were ready for some train fun! All aboard!

 He spotted the train sets and was a happy little boy!

 How cute is the sidewalk?

 more please.....
 Then we hit up the craft station and decorated trains and frames for our room!

 The birthday boy :)

 You will notice he has a short set on entering the bounce house, Jack had so much fun his buttons all came popping off..ha! Thank gosh we live on the same street so that I could run home to get new pants. ooops!
 pants on and ready to slide!

                                            Jack got a few licks at the train pinata!
 In the sea of bows, adorable outfits and hungry candy kids, Jack was able to find his way in there to get a few goodies himself :)
                            aaaaaaaaaaamazing! Dining room...... turned train station!    

After a really long nap we woke up packed up and headed to Missouri City for Lacy's 4th birthday splash party. By then the sun was out and it was hot, so the pool was the perfect retreat for the afternoon!
I forgot my camera so phone pictures are all we had, boo!

 Jack loooooved their backyard, its huge and backs up to a river, there was so much room for this little boy to run wild!
 And of course this fish was the first one in the pool!
Happy Birthday Lacy!
                                               oh and why not...more cake? yes please!
 It was much cooler inside and Jack loved checking out all the sculptures and art in the house. I loooove their house, if I could post about the entire interior I would, its amazing!
 While the girls opened up barbies and such, Daddy & Jack just sat back in the cart and relaxed! It really was such a fun afternoon with friends, and what better thing to do on a Saturday then watch your kids having a blast! 

We are so thankful to have such friendships!
Cheers to two special little friends!

mmmm mmmm good

Your favorite snack is dried fruit, you can't get enough!
 Now if we could just get you to like the veggie department :)


How we do it on Friday night

 We love our street, and couldn't ask for better neighbors! While I know we need to move in the next year or so to a bigger house, we are certainly enjoying our time in Afton Oaks. We started out on this street as the youngins and have now joined the parents club and we couldn't be more happier. There is nothing like working a hard week and looking forward to Fridays with your husband, kid, cold margaritas, plastic pools, bbq and amazing neighbors at your side!

 So fresh and so clean for the weekend as we have two birthday parties tomorrow, let the weekend begin!
