New Car

This weekend we went and drove Suburbans and ended up trading the 4-Runner in for a new one with all the bells and whistles. We had almost decided to call it a day because as it turns out I'm a lot pickier on the color than I thought I would be. You'd think with 6 or more shades of silver and like 2 blacks we could have located one but the only ones with the options we wanted were in what seemed like the one shade of silver I did not like. Anyway the last car we looked at was the Z71 black w/black interior. It was right off the truck (not even in inventory) so we had to wait till today to pick it up. I just got it and love it! My 4-Runner was pretty basic so I hadn't realize how much I missed all the bells and whistles. It was a little bitter sweet turning in the 4-Runner as it was a fun car but just a little too small with needing space for both Pepper and Emmie.

Emmie's Passport

Its official - Emmie has her first passport. It arrived in the mail yesterday. I must say I am impressed with how fast the actual processing process was once we got done with the U.S. Post Office portion. Now that part was a pain. For those of you with children be prepared that you have to physically take your kid to the post office and the times they say you can get your Passport on the website are not right!! Also read the instructions for the application. Any way Emmie has her passport and is all set for her trip to Europe next Month.

Happy Easter!

We had a wonderful Easter weekend in Austin. Emmie had a great time playing with everyone. Here are some pictures.

Pam had these really pretty flowers that matched Emmie's dress but as luck would have it the best shot I got Emmie is sticking out her tongue. I'm going to keep working on a couple to see if I can save them.

Crawfish Boil

A couple of weekends ago our neighbors and us had a small crawfish boil. I think the kids out numbered the adults. Here are some pictures from the day.
