Awana Awards

May 11, 2012
Awana Awards
Our kids went to Awana at Grace Community Church in Richmond last year.
Awana is Bible based club for kids which includes, scripture memory, games, worship and message time. It was such a neat experience for our family to sit down and study scripture together.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend their awards ceremony due to a work function that entailed me having the nice camera...these are the best Daron could do with what he had to work with.

Fun with Nana and Pa!
My mom and dad are amazing! They have had a house full of kids several times over the summer. My favorite part was eating lunch with my mom at Olive Garden the day I took the kids down and listening to how excited she was about all they were going to do.
~Children's Museum
~Pool time
and much more!

I  know Faith and Will have had a wonderful summer!
Love you Mom & Dad!

Father's Day

Faith gets really excited about special holidays.
Daron had been wanting decoration for his new office so we looked up different crafts on pinterest.  Since we were going to be in Victoria over Father's Day, I took the kids to his office for him to open his presents there where they would be able to see what his gifts would look like in his office.

Daron was surprised and loved it!
He says he gets compliments all the time when people are in his office.
I am so blessed to have a husband that truly loves being a father
and my kids are beyond blessed that they have a daddy that is as fun as Daron and would do ANYTHING for them!

Happy Father's Day babe! We love you!

A Night With The Stars
Michael and Lucy
(my boss)

This woman is one of the most amazing people I have ever met!
I just love her!!

Had a great time listening to Elvis!

Taylor (L) and Ariel (R)
are my favorite customer service people EVER!!
They know ALL the answers! :)

The next few ladies are other Vest Assistants.
Really enjoyed meeting other people that do the same thing as I do
and learning from them.

I know, I know...many people ask if I even worked. YES, I was in classes most parts of everyday...I'm obviously not going to take pictures of my seminars...boring :) LOL

This was a really great learning opportunity. I feel really blessed to have been able to go learn and network with so many other amazing people.

Rockport--July 4th

This 4th of July we went with my parents to Rockport. My mom had the kids a couple days before and as you can well see Nana fixed our little Faith up! :)

Faith's press on nails

God bless America

Loving girl time and shopping together!

Beautiful morning run. I just love sunrises and on the beach is even better!

After breakfast in our hotel room we set camp up on the beach. Rockport beach is so much prettier than I remember.

One thing you should NEVER do...feed the birds...
One thing every kids WANTS to do...feed the birds!

Wonderful, relaxing set up~Thank you mom and dad!

Daron did a great job of holding down the fort while we played in the water :)
I think he enjoyed a little alone time

Nana and Pa took the kids out for a splash...having to be extra careful because there were a lot of jellyfish :/

About to go out on the boat!!



After a wonderful day at the beach and delicious dinner at Big Fisherman we set up our chairs near little bay for the wonderful Rockport firework display.

Lets not forget my favorite part of evening...sunset!

We had a wonderful 4th of July!
Thoroughly enjoyed family time just slowing down a little!
