One night there was a young girl who was feeling a little depressed. There was nothing to do and no one to hang out she decided to go to her room, turn off the light and do what teenagers do best...


A blast from her past entered the room...

"The Girls" were standing right in front of her!!!


It is Brooke and Raegan!!! :) :) :)
Our old neighbors, Brooke and Raegan and Amy Knight drove down from Houston to hang out with us for a quick weekend! Amy, who is an accountant, had a job in the area, so the girls tagged along so they could surprise Bethany!!! Oh what a surprise it was!!! :) :) :)

We were supposed to be across the lake at the Pinewood Derby & Blue & Gold Banquet...where all of Bethany's Louisiana friends were....that's why Bethany was depressed...but not for long!!!

The girls quickly cheered up Bethany and they spent the night enjoying beignets and catching up on all girl stuff!! :)
We all went to church together on Sunday and hung out for a while, then it was time for the Knights to head back home!

Thanks for such a fun weekend SuRpRisE!!! :) :) :)

Family Time :)

One of our goals this year is to spend more quality time together as a family. Each month we try to do something fun together as a family. About once a quarter we end up doing some BIG activity. Our first BIG activity, back in February, was to go explore Northlake Nature Center.
We had a great time walking along the trail through the swamp.
Sometimes we would check out the map to figure out where we were.
Sometimes we were a little crazy!!
End of the trail...time to head back.
There was also a burned out building there that was pretty cool to look at.
The kids had a good time and found a few cool things along the way!
Mattie found leaves with holes all over them and Andrew found a thorn that looked like a mini sword!!

We caught a few cool sunset shots too! :)
Of course it wouldn't be a Prince outing without a little challenge!! :)
One last picture...our souvenirs of the day...
