Life has been more than busy lately. Here I thought the summer would be uneventful but alas, it hasn't been. Sorry for my lack of blog-ness, I assure you I have plenty to blog about but lately, I just haven't had the time!!
The past 2 weeks have been packed for us and even this weekend we have much going on, next week looks fun as well.
Evans mother's side of the fam-fam hosted a family reunion June 4-6th at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX. Hands down a VERY fun place for families but not for those with small children (under 2) or for those on tight budgets! Avery loved the water, Evan and his dad were like little boys going down the slides and the lazy river was anything but lazy with kids aiming water buckets high above your head!!! I've posted pictures on FB, so be sure to check them out. It was a LOT of fun and very much needed. We're talking about making it a fun date night for us (for the arcade, and dining places) in the future and for a family outing when Avery is over 48inches tall and can do more than one area out of all the neat things they had. I'm now working on getting a address book done with all the families information, there were 35 of us gathered and it was neat to meet so many new family members on Evans side. The last reunion they had was before Jarrod was born (1989!) Other than that everytime they got together was at a funeral which is not where you have a good time together.
We got home Sunday night where I plugged my phone in to power up and then started laundry...around 1am my phone pretty much explodes with voicemails and missed calls from my sister Jackye. I didn't think much of it and decided to check the messages in the morning because we were all sunburned and exhausted. So around 11am Monday my sister calls me and I answer thinking she wanted to hang out since she gets bored home all day and is my babysitter plus, she was being induced on Thursday so she was getting excited come to find out my sister was in the hospital in labor and had been admitted Sunday around NOON!
I felt so bad after I got off the phone with Kris (future bro-in law) and checked all 5 messages of Jackye in different aspects of labor asking me to call her and to come to her and how she really wanted to talk to me! (kinda funny hearing the panic in each message actually) As soon as Avery woke from her nap we drove to the hospital and arrived right as Jackye started to push. I told her to tell the nurses that her sisters record was 6 pushed in 25minutes, yeah what a show off, she did it in 3 pushes about 10 minutes!!!
