Easter 2013

We spent the Easter weekend with the Reeds in Stephenville. Griffin and Gavin love getting together! Sweet boys had fun running around Granny's and sleeping over at Aunt Hilary's!

Fun times with the cousins - Ally, Gavin, Madi, and G

Even Spidey needs to take a break and eat! I have to note here that my picky eater is now a HUGE fan of hardboiled eggs. Who knew?!

We planted magic jelly beans on Saturday and woke up to sweet surprises on Sunday! Yay - more candy for my crazy kid :)

Preparing for the Easter egg hunt in our PJs!

Getting help from Granny!

This little guy loves his Uncle Matt!

Happy Easter from this cute little guy....
....who made some eggs for him and his baby sister! Next year, there will be TWO Reeds celebrating this perfect day! Baby sister is a story in itself - a long journey that requires another post :) No matter what, we are so blessed with our munchkins. We had a great weekend celebrating just that!

Spring Break 2013

Spring Break sure was a blast! We spent some time at the rodeo with Jill and Kiki. This year, he asked me to stand outside the gate while he rode the horse - he was too big for me to walk beside him. Well, okay then. He also rode a few rides and played some games - to my surprise, he won some prizes! I love the rodeo - especially with this cute cowboy!

We had lunch with some cuties on Tuesday! I loved seeing my sweet friend Julie and her cute little ones, Bennett and Claire. Julie and I survived the "fun" that was grad school, and I am blessed to have walked away with a great friendship! Thanks for having us over, Julie!
Julie lives right by the Trader Joe's so we went over for a few items. I love that they have small carts for the kids to push :) I am also loving the cookie butter I picked up while there (Thanks Julie and Lori for the rec!).

Sweet Kiki came to hang out for a couple days! There's much fun to be had while these two are together. We took the boys to Clay's for dinner on the patio and to play as well as see animals!

Move time!
Griffin has never been bowling so we went with Kiki and the Odells on Thursday to try it out! We had a great time with all the kids (as usual!), and G did a great job! I see a lot of bowling in our future!

Both boys bowled strikes!

The plan for Friday was to take a trip with Caden! Plan #1 was to pick some strawberries at a farm nearby, but by Friday, there were no berries to pick! Plan #2 was to hit the zoo, but due to the Spring Break crowds, we couldn't even get a parking spot in the medical center! It was nuts! That left us with the final plan - Discovery Green. We already had our lunches packed so we were good to go. The boys had fun running all over the place, playing on the playground, and eating snowcones!

Thanks to Daddy's awesome job, we were able to get some suite seats to the rodeo on Saturday. It was G's chance to show Dad his skills! He loved the pedicab to the carnival and loved the rodeo/concert even more. Who can blame him when the food, drinks, ice cream, and restroom are all in your suite?? :) Thanks, Dad, for the hook-up!

Mommy liked Luke Bryan :)

He even cut a rug with me!

First concert = success!
I just counted - only 12 weeks left until summer! We have some big plans brewing in the Reed casa, and I can't wait for the adventures coming soon!

We spent the weekend in Louisiana with my awesome family! My cousin Aimee was having a 3rd birthday party for her sweet little boy, Charlie, and we didn't want to miss it! As always, we ate SO well. We had the best burger at this hole-in-the-wall restaurant -even G agrees!

Then the boys cooked some crawfish in the cold, and it was worth it! YUM

My Uncle Bob has this drumset that G loves to play when we visit. Little rockstar!

 And then there was more aunt made this amazing cole slaw that I will be making soon! It was a nice side dish to our lunch (she is the BEST cook!). 

Sweet cousins Jack and Griffin at Charlie's party! They were waiting patiently for their turn at the pinata!

My cousin and I wish the boys lived closer - they were so sweet together!

 Since we got home late Sunday night, we stayed one more night at Mi-Maw's. Look who woke us up and enjoyed breakfast with us?? Kiki!

I had a doctor's appointment on Monday so G went with me. He did a great job - thumbs up!

We followed the appointment with lunch at Freebird's. Best. Burrito. Ever. 

Couple other pics - he keeps asking me to take pictures of him and then poses like this....

We also had rodeo day at school - precious little cowboy!

 And we visited with Uncle Doug's new puppies - he wanted to take one home, but NO THANKS! Maybe one day....

Spring Break is just around the corner! Can't wait for a break and some fun!
