Thank you for today, for this food you gave us to eat. God, I don't know what I can do to do better at school. I will try my hardest to get a green or purple. I love you Lord, and I will never let go of Your promises.
I love that sweet boy!

We began the evening by taking DART down to the fairgrounds, fabulous. You don't have to find parking and then walk a mile to get there! Once there we stalked Big Tex and the trains that run around him, while eating Fletcher's dogs and lemonade. Then headed down to the Midway. The boys could not contain their excitement. Thankfully we convinced them the best time to ride the ferris wheel was when the sun was going down. We ran into some friends along the way and let the kids ride a few rides together. We ended the night sliding down "Fast Trax" a fun potato sack ride. Perfect weather, perfect evening, perfect family!
The perfect ending...Ethan is in love with Monster Trucks.

Fascinated with anything Paul is doing Sidetracked...a struggling Cicada on the ground If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times. The little boy squat is my favorite!
See they never grow out of it
Saturday we woke up had a breakfast, and headed to Grapevine to hit the Grapevine Wine Trail. What fun touring the different wine makers and learning more about wine, our likes and dislikes. Being able to spend so much uninterrupted time together - good for the soul of the marriage. We talked serious, fun, dreamed, planned, etc.
What good is a weekend without kids if you don't start doing some hefty project around the house. We tore down the "wing" walls on either side of the house. Who knew sledgehammering bricks would be so much fun. I think Paul's testosterone tripled just buying the sledgehammer!
This is very exciting for us. He was giving us some serious attitude about it. We endured, and it has paid off. Oh I'm sure there will be more accidents, but I know we are heading the right way. He even has told us he needed to go #2 while out of the house, that's huge.
That just might be my most exciting news this week!!!

We spent most of our time at the clubhouse pool. The boys perfected their lifeguard run into the water, ha ha ha. Played lots of submarine with Paul, and just had plain ol' fun.
