Birthday Week 2014

 We had a busy busy week!!
Ebby Lee got a new bike for her birthday.  For her birthday, we hit up the bike trail so she could try out the new bike.

Bowen fell asleep LIKE THIS!!  Who does that??  A third kid…that’s who!  😉

After half a lap, they needed to take a break to look at birds through the binoculars…ha!

Prepare yourself…when we got back to our house the kiddos and my mom rested.  Bruce and Tab (in between working) were trying to get our pool up and running.  Tab and I are new to the pool so we let it become a HOT NASTY MESS this winter.  We had a LOT of work to do!!  Our backyard was a disaster!!  You might need to grab a paper bag before you look at these pictures!!  I’m NOT kidding.  Grab your bag!  haha!
I know!!  It was HORRIBLE!!

I’m keeping it REAL today!!  Our pool was SO nasty!!  Tab was gone, so I thought I should help Bruce as much as I could.

Do you see my legs??  ICK!!  Proof that I worked hard!!!  This is the scary part.  I’m not following those nasty pictures up with a good one!!  The pool is back up and running!  But…the concrete guys are coming in 4 weeks (YES!!  I KNOW!!  WAY too long!) to finish it up!  I’ll post pics AFTER all of that.

Bowen took some bluebonnet pictures with Mrs. Narci.  Can’t wait to see them!!

Ebby Lee chose Culver’s for her birthday dinner.  So random!!!  Back in the fall, she got her tonsils out and my mom took her to Culver’s a couple days later.  She is 100% certain that the Culver’s meal made her feel SO MUCH BETTER!

 My sweet five-year-old!!

Thursday before school….my mom and I shopped and shopped while the big kids were busy at school.

Proof that B was there too!!

And Boo too!!

Friday we hit up the park with these crazies!

This kid seriously thinks he’s four too!

Saturday was Nixon’s birthday.  We started the day with presents!!

After the zoo, we played and played and played basketball!

Nixon picked a chocolate cake with chocolate icing!  His very favorite!

Bowen was SO glad Nixon chose chocolate!!

Birthday week 2014 was a huge success…don’t you think that chocolatey smile proves it??

After all that fun, on Sunday…Bowen did a little crushin’ on Miss G (who turns one today)!

Hope you all had a GREAT week too!!

    Super cute birthday fun and I agree with Ebby Lee, there is something magical about those Culvers French fries.

    I just started reading your blog and your little family is so cute! I love your style, I still contemplating that jean jacket.

    Every time I see a picture of your little Nixon I keep thinking he looks just like Shay's brother Sean. He's like a mini Sean.

    Growing up we had a pool and my parents let it get green in the winter and we had to clean it out every spring! It was super gross…I feel your pain! Wearing a mask over your mouth/nose helps too. But it will be so pretty when it's done!
