A + H + C + T + 2 do Colorado

To escape the heat, Hook planned a family trip for us to Vail, CO....never thought those words would EVER come out of my mouth!  The heat must really be getting to him...  The weather was perfect and the beauty just as incredible as I had remembered!


...but first, let's catch up from earlier this month of June.


PLAY DATE WITH ALLE AND GRAYSON AT THE DALLAS ARBORETUM

I ATTENDED MY 20, YES 20, YEAR HIGH SCHOOL REUNION IN MAGNOLIA, AR.   HOOK GLADLY STAYED HOME WITH CAYMAN (for the first time).   MY ONLY REGRET WAS NOT ARRIVING A DAY EARLIER FOR A SPUDNUT (or two)...APPARENTLY THEY ARE CLOSED ON SUNDAYS...

GOOD TO SEE OLD FRIENDS AND MEET SOME NEW ONES.  MANY OF US WENT TO SCHOOL TOGETHER FROM PRE-PRE SCHOOL THROUGH GRADUATION AND SOME EVEN COLLEGE!  THAT'S A LOT OF YEARS PEOPLE!
CAYMAN STARTED BACK, WITHOUT HESITATION, TO SUMMER MOTHER'S DAY OUT AT NORTHWAY CHRISTIAN.  LOVE THIS LITTLE SCHOOL.

HOOK SURVIVED YET ANOTHER FATHER'S DAY...WINK, WINK.

A TREE FELL INTO OUR YARD/HOUSE...THIS WAS FUN...

THANK GOODNESS FOR APPLE ON AIRPLANES

FAMILY PHOTO OPP
CAYMAN'S FIRST RIDE ON THE EAGLE BAHN GONDOLA.  WE SAW HORSES AND "SNOW"!!!  (with a silent "S")

WHAT A VIEW.

HOOK'S COLLEGE FRIEND, SEAN MOORE, AND HIS BEAUTIFUL FIANCE, ADRIANA (GREAT NAME)  CAME UP FROM DENVER FOR THE NIGHT.  GREAT SEEING THEM BOTH!

WHEN I THINK OF VAIL, I THINK OF THIS SPOT.  GORE CREEK IS JUST BEAUTIFUL!

WHEN I THINK OF EATING IN VAIL, I THINK OF THIS PLACE...LOTS OF LATE NIGHT PIE THAT SUMMER ;~)

WE WERE SUPER EXCITED TO MEET ALL OF THESE BEAUTIES IN ASPEN FOR A BRUNCH AND PARK DATE!  (Cayman, Olivia & Ella Pettus, Micah McNeill)

ACCORDING TO CAYMAN, THE COLD WATER WAS WAY BETTER THAN THE SAND...UH OH...

YES, THAT IS A SWEATER AND A PULLOVER...NICE.



THERE WAS A 4TH PARTY ALONG FOR THE RIDE TO COLORADO!
DUE JANUARY 6, 2014!

Sum-Sum-Summertime


Splashing puddles at Il Cane Rosso...thank you Wertzes for a nice birthday dinner!

SCHOOL BEGINS FALL 2011

SCHOOL ENDS SUMMER 2012

Stu & crew joined us for a lovely brunch before heading up to AR

Uncle B and Aunt Say came for a long overdue visit over Memorial Weekend

melts my heart

Cayman's best CA girl came by for a visit!


One of our first really hot days...well it was almost June in Dallas, TX

She might make a babysitter!  Cayman was a huge help with Ellie Grace last Thursday!

My dinner date Friday night

It's an Aunt Melissa pile-up!

A lovely morning at Klyde Warren Park with the Staggs cousins!  This is our new park that doubles as a deck over Dallas' Woodall Rogers interstate.  Crazy, but quite cool!

Reed the sealion

This gal was a trooper!  Cayman proceeded to share her hat...and this is after a good 20 minutes of hugs and pats.
