Happy Birthday, Kirven!

Kirven turned 9 on the 21st. He decided to have sleepover this year instead of a party, so we had two of his best friends over the Friday before. We had hot dogs for dinner, and Kirven decorated his cake before blowing out the nine candles. The rest of the evening was spent playing LEGOS. We got them off to bed (or at least in sleeping bags, if not actually sleeping) by 10pm. And then they were back up at 4:30am. Yes, you read that right. They played very quietly until about 6am when the we parental units finally drug ourselves out of bed to make chocolate chip pancakes.

Lost Maples

We had a great time in Leakey, TX, this past weekend at the River Haven Cabins. We hiked at Garner State Park on Friday, and then Lost Maples on Saturday with good friends. The maple trees were really a pretty, vibrant red. All of these pictures are from Lost Maples.

Colonial Williamsburg

I only remembered to take pictures one day of the three we were at Colonial Williamsburg. I finally remembered just to give it to Kirven and let him take the pictures.

Colonial Williamsburg was amazing and so much fun. We had three full days of things to see, and we still didn't see it all. The place is huge.

We watched all the tradespeople at work that we could find, and I hope that when the kids are older, we can make a trip back to see more of the Revolitionary War events that they have going on all the time.

I'd also like us to see Jamestown and Yorktown, too, on a future trip.
