Oliver's 3rd Birthday Party!

Oliver only had 3 requests for his birthday this year: he wanted a pizza party, he wanted a monster truck birthday cake and he wanted everyone to have red plates. Fair enough. :) We had his pizza party at a splash pad near our house. The kids had so much fun running around in the water, playing on the playground, eating pizza and sporting the polka-dot party hats that Oliver picked out. It was a lot of fun. My only regret is that I didn't get any good pics of the monster truck cake! Dang! I guess there is always next year. 

Pizza on red plates! Oliver is easy to please. :)

A bad picture of the monster truck cake as it melts in the Houston heat. Oliver LOVED it!!! 

The only picture he would let me take of him. He did have fun, I promise! haha! He just hates smiling on demand!

4th of July in Dallas

Austin was in Scotland for a conference over the 4th of July holiday, so I took the boys up to Dallas to see family! We spent 4th of July weekend at my cousin, Harrell's, house and it was a blast! I also got to spend some time at Grandpa and Grandma Smith's. It has been so nice to live somewhat close to them this summer so that I could see them a few times! Then we went to Rissa's apartment and spent a few days with her, Josh, Ender and Sailor.
