Destin 2009 - Days 1 and 2

Well, we have arrived in Destin for our annual vacation with the Leach Family. We drove through the night on Tuesday night and got here Wednesday morning. We have already enjoyed 2 days of the beach and are looking forward to 3 more days! Here are a couple of pics of our trip so far...

38 Weeks and 2 Days

So, I got an email on Thursday (from a baby website) that told me that Pierce was 38 weeks old.  I had long lost count of the weeks, but I started thinking...I had Pierce at 38 weeks (and 2 days) and I couldn't believe that it had already been that long since I had him.  It is quite amazing how my perception of time has changed - with my pregnancy, I felt like 38 weeks and 2 days were such a long time, and with Pierce I feel like it has just flown by.  

Here are a couple pics of my favorite "38 Weeks and 2 Day" old little boy:

A special thank you to Randy and Rebecca White for the authentic Italian National Team soccer jersey!  They were in Italy last summer when we found out that P was a little boy, and they picked him up this jersey.

off to London...

Aunt A and Tio Jose are leaving for London tomorrow morning.  We hope that they have lots of fun.  We will sure miss them!  But we are so glad that they will be back just in time for P's 1st birthday!  


On Friday night, Pierce had the opportunity to have a 'big brother' around.  Pierce and Duncan both loved having Connor spend the night.   We all had so fun much.

on the loose...

Dear Fishes,
Beware.  A shark is on the loose.

Once the shark got free, a little naked bum was on the loose.

pierce and macie

Tonight we headed over to the Hall's house for dinner and playtime for the kiddos.  It had been awhile since all 6 (7 of us counting Duncan) had gotten together.  We had such a great time and are so thankful for such wonderful friends.  With Macie and Pierce being on 7 weeks apart, they are so fun to watch as they 'play' together.

duncan was super excited that he was invited over tonight.  you see, kendra use to not be a dog person at all, but she loves duncan and is starting to change her ways about little dogs.  i personally think that macie girl needs a dog.  she loved playing with duncan!

the next 3 pictures is what happens when you try to take a picture of 2 kids and a dog...

pierce and duncan's stay-cation

while justin and i were on our 'anniversary get-away' in grandbury, pierce and duncan had thier own get-away, a stay at grandma and grandad's house.  he had so much fun going to see NeNe and Papa Bert, eating at OTB with Tio and Aunt A, and of course playing with Grandma and Grandad.  here are just a few of the pics from their night away.

anniversary get-away

since our first anniversary, justin and i have gone on a 'stay-cation' around the DFW area.  this year we went to Grandbury and stayed in a fabulous bed and breakfast.  the house was 120 years old and had been completely renovated 4 years ago.  it was absolutely beautiful.  we got there early on friday afternoon and used their pool that overlooked the lake.  friday night we went to the historic district and ate at the little steak house.  we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast this morning and then headed back to plano.  we had a great time celebrating 5 years of being married!
