Catching up on happenings in June 2017 - March 2018.

Yikes, it's been almost an entire year since I last blogged. 😳 And A LOT has happened since then. So here's what you need to know!

We went to Utah at the end of June/beginning of July. Found out we were expecting another baby at the end of July. Kennedy turned 4 in August and Darin, Lisa, Mckay, Hadley, and Campbell were able to be with us in Louisiana to celebrate her special day. We then went to Texas in September to watch my brothers play football and march in the band for the homecoming game. Celebrated Cole's birthday and found out that our sweet baby was going to be a BOY in October. Celebrated Thanksgiving with our good friends, the Kogers, in Lafayette. Finnley turned two in December and little after that we went to visit some of our really close family friends in Florida for Christmas. January through March of this year consisted of lots of job applications for Cole and lots of prayers that something would eventually work out. We finally got a job offer that was worth taking and we moved while I was 38 weeks pregnant. And then Riggins was born only 8 days after we moved to Lubbock. Since then we've been living in Lubbock and really enjoying it! 

Our trip to Nawlins (New Orleans).

Thursday, June 8, 2017

We went on a little trip to New Orleans and the culture and history of it all were really neat to experience and learn about, but it wasn't the cleanest place - physically or morally. 😆  That being said we are very glad that we were able to meet up with some good friends of ours who are now living in the Bay Area of California for a few days. We had some beignets, Cajun food, took our girls to the Aquarium, explored the French Quarter, stumbled upon a gay pride on Easter Sunday, which is fine, except for the fact that some of the people on the floats weren't wearing much of anything. 😳  And we did a self-guided tour of Lafayette Cemetery (props to Heather and AJ for downloading that ahead of time). Kennedy's favorite part was probably when we rode on a trolley to get to the cemetery. She's obsessed with Daniel Tiger, so it only makes sense!

I would definitely recommend taking a trip to New Orleans because there is definitely so much about it to appreciate, but I think it's a one and done kind of a place as a family trip destination. Haha!

Our mini vacation to San Antonio!

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Cole has been working like crazy, so when his supervisor offered to cover for him for 4 days we jumped at the opportunity and decided to head a little over 5 hours away to San Antonio to see Cole's grandparents. We had a blast! We went to the natural bridge wildlife ranch, got to see the Alamo, the River Walk, the temple, had some delicious Texas BBQ brisket sandwiches and we decided to drive up to Waco before heading home on Monday to see the Magnolia Market at the Silos! We had so much fun and had some much needed family time.
