"In our search to obtain relief from the stresses of life, may we earnestly seek ways to simplify our lives. May we comply with the inspired counsel and direction the Lord has given us in the great plan of happiness. May we be worthy to have the companionship of the Holy Ghost and follow the guidance of the Spirit as we navigate this mortal journey. May we prepare ourselves to accomplish the ultimate purpose of this mortal test- to return and live with our Heavenly Father."

I finally caught Sam smiling on video. It wasn't very long but it was cute!

On Sunday a huge rainstorm came through, this was when we just got home from church and Chad could resist, he had to let Carly play in the rain. I look like a dork in the video so pay no attention to me. :)

Pictures from last week

Here are some pictures from when my sister was here. We did so much stuff and had a lot of fun! At least, I did! :) Above are pictures when we went out to Chad's parents house and the bottom two are of the cute girls.
This was when we went to the Woodlands mall. We let the girls play for a little bit in the play area. They took a small break and each had a cookie.

This was downtown at the Galleria. They have a really cool candy store there. We pretty much had something planned every day of the week. We definetly wore our kids out and ourselves!

Fun with Family!

My sister is here visiting with two of her four kids. We have been busy but we have been having fun!
These are some pictures from when we went to the Houston Zoo. It was horribly hot but we had fun and managed not to get heat stroke!! Carly loved the animals (the ones she could see anyway)
We took my double stroller and then we rented a wagon. Well, all the girls wanted to ride in the stroller.

The Houston Zoo has an awesome Children's Zoo. It has 3 (i think) different playgrounds and then this water playground which the girls loved because it was so hot! I wish I could've played in it! They also had a little petting zoo. Basically just a fenced off area with goats but the girls enjoyed it! Sam enjoyed stretching out in the wagon while the girls played in the water. I carried him around in the snugly and both he and I just got too hot and sweaty. It wasn't fun!

This was at a place called Pump it up. I went there last summer with Carly but this time I didn't have to go up and down with her. She could do it all by herself although Emma liked to help her. Sam just chilled out in his car seat the whole time!

These are just some pictures of Carly showing off her Elmo Boots that Naw Naw (Chad's grandmother) gave her. She is definitely spoiled!
