Happy 4th Birthday Kyndall Ann Kelly!

What an amazing little girl turned 4 today!!! She is such a blessing in our lives. How can I even start to describe what a beautiful, sweet, funny, and loving girl she is becoming. My favorite thing about Kyndall is how loving and sweet she is to her family. She loves Avery with all her heart and Avery feels the same way. She is the best big sister in the world!! She loves her friends, Jesus and just enjoys life.
This past year, right after she turned 3 she took Ballet and she was Great at it! She enjoyed learning about Jesus in Bible Study Fellowship and met a couple of new friends. She went to her first Graduation for her cousin Sophie (who she LOVES). She also got to go to Bits and Gram's house over night for a couple of nights this past year! It has been such a fun and exciting year for her trying new things, going fun places, and just living life.
We LOVE you so much Kyndall and can't wait to enjoy you being 4!!
Last year seems like yesterday.....Kyndall turning 3!

Here she is turning 2....

Summer sun = Swimming fun

Between Uncle Marc's fun backyard pool and our Gym's pool, we have been having some fun in the sun lately!! Here are a few pictures I have snapped of the girls enjoying swimming! Last year (don't judge) I was a little nervous taking a 1 year old and 3 year old to the pool by myself, so I only took them twice...but this year they are little fish!!
Kyndall loves her Uncle Bill and Allison!!

So I joined Lifetime Fitness in Oct. which has been great! Kyndall does ballet there and I usually work out a couple of times a week...the girls LOVE the gym play area (kid care center). During the summer they open their outdoor pool and it is so fun! My friend Intaly and I work out together and then take our sweet girls to swim in the evening (usually) when it isn't quite so hot! This is a pic of the pool! Pretty nice! You can see Kyndall sitting down with Intaly and her little friend Kiley waiting to get out and swim (of course the first day we got there, it was the 15 minute break they make the kids take from swimming).
Kyndall's favorite thing to do is go along the edge and play
and this is Avery's favorite thing to do
We swim until twilight, then head home!
Time to go!

Six Year Anniversary

So have I told you what great friends I have? I know you read about them from time to time on here with our fun outings...but I don't think I brag about them enough. They are the kind of friends who ask you if they can watch your kids so you can go out for your anniversary while your kids are having a super fun time with their best friends!! Kyndall and Avery went to their friend's house to have their first ever Pajama Party!! (just til 8:30 pm...not an over-nighter yet!) They just LOVE their friends Kate and Sara Paige, and had a BLAST playing in their PJ's with them and watching the Princess and the Frog! So while they played with them...check out the pic of them in their PJ's and slippers....we went to eat at Texas de Brazil in Addison...
Jim is posing with our appetizer spread...salads, cheeses, meats, lobster bisque soup (our favorite), vegetables, and cheesy rolls!!! After you help yourself to as much of this as you want...

Time for some delicious meat!! The Steak was my favorite...Top Sirloin to be exact!! Just lay this baby on the table and watch the meat come your way!! LOVE Texas De Brazil!!!

So....I thought the goucho guys were so festive I decided to sneak a pic of one (by setting my phone on the table and aiming in his direction) in their famous pants cutting off the meat, and he totally saw me taking the pic of him!! He said that my flash gave me away!!!
So he came over and posed with Jim!! Jim was thrilled with me, let me tell you:) Just kidding, Jim is a great sport!!
And I ended my meal with my favorite drink!! Cafe Latte...YUM!Happy 6th Anniversary to my wonderful, amazing husband. What fun it has been falling in love, getting married, buying a house, getting a dog, having 2 adorable children, and still enjoying each other! I can't wait to see what the next 6 years bring us!! Maybe a trip back to Hawaii...wink wink!!!
Sorry folks, I have been bad at posting blogs lately...our Anniversary was June 3, but too important not to share with I posted it a little late:)

The Dallas Arboretum=Beautiful!

Some of my favorite girls and I took our kids to the Dallas Arboretum. What a fantastic place to spend the day. It was of every kind everywhere...beautiful settings for picnics, weddings, and just lazy days to enjoy God's beautiful creations. There was so much to do and see. We all had a blast...we even got rained on for awhile, but still had a blast!
Intaly, Mariah,Melinda....some of my Best Friends

Beatrix Potter's stories come to life with little houses covered in different flowers set up to look like her stories...this house had ducks in it to watch..

House completely covered in flowers...beautiful!

Avery and I paused for a picture

All 9 of our kiddos! Can you believe we got them all to sit together for a picture!!!
We had a picnic lunch overlooking the lake and let the kids run all around!
Hugs!! Kiley and Kyndall were having fun playing in some little houses set up for kids to explore...

And we ended our day getting wet again!! We let all the kids loose in the fountains...super fun! Avery sat by me...not her idea of fun I guess:)
