Cheerleading Swim Party

The girls had their cheerleading season kick-off party at the water park this morning. They are going to cheer on a team with Ashlyn this year. Their team will start practicing in August, and their first game will be in September. So to kick off the season they had some fun. Excuse Ella's swimsuit that always seems to inch down. I didn't notice when I was taking the picture, and it was the only pic that I took with Ashlyn!




6 Flags!

On Friday evening after Sam got home from work we headed to Six Flags. We didn't get there until 6:00, and we left the park when it closed at 10:00. It wasn't too hot, or too crowded. We had a great time! In the picture above we had just gotten off of The Roaring Rapids Ride. We were all soaked!

Celebrating with Chels and Bren

I celebrated b-day #32 with Chels and Bren doing something that I really love! Shopping and dining in Southlake Town Square! We hit our favorite spot...Gap, where Chels spoiled me by getting me a new denim skirt for back to school! My choice for my b-day dinner was Mi Cocina...yum! We sipped a Mambo Taxi and munched on fajitas. The dinner and conversation were perfect! The staff at the restaurant pretty much had to kick us out! They closed at 9:30, and we weren't out til after 10:00
My friends didn't want their pics taken, so sadly this is the only picture that was taken! Me, checking out at The Gap! Sam looked at this picture and said "busted!"....of course! :)

I finally dragged the camera out of its summer hibernation to document my 32nd birthday! We had a great time celebrating this weekend! Since Sam was out of town on a work related trip during my 30th and 31st b-day, we decided to celebrate big this year because he was going to be in town! We started celebrating Saturday evening by having a night out with friends in Fort Worth. We ate at a yummy Mexican food restaurant called La Familia. I chose it mainly because I had heard that they served flaming margaritas! Yummy!

They even sang a special b-day song to me, and they gave me a sombrero to take home! ;)

I opened special presents from my friends...

had several flaming margaritas...

posed for pictures...

and even got a jalapeno bull and a pecan praline to take home!

After dinner we headed to 8.0 in Sundance Square to sit outside and listen to a neat band. We met up with another group of friends, and we had a great time!

On Sunday the celebrating continued....we met up with Mom and Robin for b-day dinner at Saltgrass. They spoiled me and got me tickets to the Sugarland concert in October, $, and delicious cupcakes!

Monday was my actual b-day. For lunch we met Sam at Chik-fil-A, and for dinner we tried a new place in The Highlands called Mandola's Italian Market. Their entrees were so-so, but their desserts were superb. Carrot cake, gelato, chocolate cake, and Italian cookies were had by all!! So good!
