Houston trip & Happy Birthday to Greta!

Last Wednesday, Parker & I flew down to Houston, TX to visit with family for a few days! Aah, it was nice to fly in to warmer weather! :) I didn't take a lot of pictures, but we had a blast!!! We stayed at Ash's & KK's place...did I mention that it had the greatest playground for Parker?! He probably spent a good 4-5 hours at that play area while we were down South.

The girls got creative each morning & while they were getting ready (showers, hair, makeup, clothes, etc. etc. etc. :) ) LC & KK would put Parker in his pack n' play, play Disney music, set up a special tent with his blanket & let him play his little heart out! I so wish I had gotten a picture of the famous tent that he looked forward to "working in" each morning!

He always enjoys watching his aunts while they get ready too! I think it totally mesmorizes him!We spent an evening or two hanging out at the girls' apt...watching movies, playing with his aunts & Nana & Poppie, entertaining us with Buzz & Woody...it was all fun! We even got to check out Reliant, where the 2010 Houston Rodeo is being held. KK is volunteering at it this year & we (Clay, Parker & I) want to go sooo badly!!! (What could be cuter than getting those boots & that cowboy hat for Parker & taking him to see the horses & fun?!) Oh, for just a few more hours in our weeks! :)
Another hour at the park...
After finding the right hat at the cowboy store, his Aunt Ash helped him pick up some good-looking red boots to complete the rugged ensemble. ;) I have to say that he was by far the cutest little cowboy running around that store that one has ever seen! (And I'm only slightly partial!)
Thank you for hosting us KK & Ash! We had a fabulous time with everyone last week! It was fun getting to sit back & watch in on a part of your life for a few days! Looking forward to more visits this spring & summer!

Parker & I flew back home Saturday morning; Clay had just gotten in from a trip the night before, so he came to pick us up at the airport.

Parker's friend, Greta, was celebrating her 2nd birthday party Saturday afternoon, so we scooted in for the last bit of it. LOVED her theme...Strawberry shortcake! So cute & sooo fitting for her sweet personality! Lucas & Parker had fun helping her eat the cake & play with her new toys of course! :) Thanks for the invite Greta & Jami!!! Looking forward to playing again soon!

Since arriving back in MN, we've been busy, busy on the go...I'm loving (just about!) every minute of it. With that being said, I'm going to scoot off of here & go organize something...

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog and for telling me about your dad. My dad was in a lot of pain too so I'm glad that he didn't have to endure that much longer.
You are so sweet!! Xoxo
