Bluebonnets 2013

After the egg hunt we took pictures in the bluebonnets.  The girls still love to take bluebonnet pictures.  On the other hand, Hays was ready to eat his candy!

We had a successful egg hunt.

Sack races- Hays has his game face on!

I missed the egg toss but got a picture of the egg and spoon race.   Hays was busy eating candy at this point.

Cascarone time!

The week before SB Wade shared that the animal shelter had just received a golden retriever puppy. Fast forward to the Monday morning after SB when he received a call that they needed to know if he still wanted the puppy. The kids were at school and I still had one more day of SB. I had envisioned a low key day of unwinding and relaxing but the next thing I'm doing is buying puppy stuff at Petsmart.
When I get home our puppy is huge and no way born on 4th of July. The kids were a little shocked that we got a dog when they got home from school that afternoon. It was later verified that our dog was truly a puppy and still has plenty of growing to do.
Their Daddy named him Dog so that's what we call him. Dog is still a little scared of his new environment but everyday he's getting better. I would be a little freaked out with three wild, loud kids running around too!
We still have Coffee hanging around our house and with the addition of Checkers and Dog, we have 8 mouths to feed and I have 7 beings to take care of everyday. Life is a little crazy but we are enjoying our new additions.


We have two new additions to our family, the first on is a three year old cat. We first saw her at Petsmart in San Antonio before Christmas. She had been at a local animal shelter for almost a year when a no kill facility took her to their adoption place. The adoption place took her to Petsmart before Christmas and she was still there when we went back after New Years. The girls begged me to get "Freckles" since she still didn't have a home. We made two trips to see the cat and when their Daddy made the third visit we were taking a cat home with us.
She has settled well into our family. We renamed her Checkers (#2), and she loves hanging out in with the girls.
