Memorial Day Weekend

While at the river for Memorial Day, JGP got in the water for the first time.
As you can see from the pictures, it took him a while to warm up to the idea.

Pre-Swimming Concern


"I knew this would be terrible!!! Why are you torturing me?"

"O.K. Maybe this isn't so bad after all."

In addition to swimming (Can you really call it "swimming" when it's basically just "violent leg thrashing?"), the little man got to spend some quality time with extended family. Here he is with Papa, Nana, Aunt Mandi, and Grandmama Carroll:

Fun at the Beach

And we're back. And we have a little catching up to do. Two weeks ago Shea had a conference to attend at the beach that we extended by a couple of nights to become a mini (and I do emphasize "mini") vacation. Stay tuned for pictures from Memorial Day weekend (and JGP's first swim in the river).

And the winner is...


Please don't be overwhelmed - I know that it has been forever since we blogged and then we post twice in one day, one from each of us - it's just too much!

I had to blog because I won something! It never happens to me - I attend every used car night at the Barons desperately hoping for them to call out my name for one of the old clunkers, sitting through nine innings of obnoxious fans who act like this is the pros, and do they ever call my name? No! I try to call the radio station during Reg's coffee house for every ticket giveaway and never get anything but the busy signal. I even went to the Baby Expo at the Galleria this year, in the madness of a bunch of pregnant ladies, very pregnant myself, signed up for a bajillion free things and did I get anything? No!

So back to my win - I read Designmom's blog - it's pretty and creative and I enjoy it even though I don't have a creative bone in my body. She has been giving things away in honor of mother's day and I won a party pack. (Notice my comment that got picked). I get to pick out my own design and everything! Now I just have to figure out what I am going to use it for - maybe for a birthday party in December.

Apologies (with parenthetical comments)

We do hereby solemnly apologize for the following:

1. that we waited almost two weeks to post anything new (cut us some slack, people--our lives have been a little crazy as of late!)

2. that we are only posting two more of those low quality videos of the babe (did you happen to offer to buy us a real video camera to make better videos? i didn't think so.)

3. that the videos are upside down (you complain because there's nothing new on the blog, and now you wanna gripe about having to stand on your head to see it?!)

4. that JGP isn't doing anything all that impressive in the videos (you try and capture something cute and adorable when all the little booger does is stare at the red light in silence every time you turn the camera on!)
