Houston visit

The boys and I headed to Houston last week to visit some of my college friends. Blakely and I met our freshmen year at Baylor and have been buds every since. I love me some Blake. She can make me laugh like very few can! We both have 2 boys each around the same ages and when we only had one each we always tried to get together twice a year for a few days. We had such fun trips...until they both were 2 1/2, I had a newborn, and she was very pregnant. It was a total disaster and we decided during that visit that we would get together again when they turned 16. We got brave sooner than we thought and gave it another try...AND it was a blast!

Here we are at Lupe Tortilla's enjoying dinner
Whoever came up with the idea of a huge sandbox at a restaurant was pure genius
Bought us a lot of eating and chatting time
Blakely, Colton, and pet frogs and turtles
Boys played Mario Kart on Wii for a long time
It wasn't long until a full out wrestling match started
Zachary being dogpiled by Colton and Caden
The Milam boys taking on Colton
These boys played PERFECTLY together. Made great buddies!
I would love to have heard this conversation
Everybody is entitled to a grouchy moment
Three other of our sorority sisters with their kids came over to swim one afternoon. There were 10 kids between us. MY, MY how times have changed!
They swam, jumped, ran, screamed, rode, laughed, was wild!Sarah and baby Kameron
And her other 2: Erin and Brooke
This is Sarah's twin, Rachel and her boys, Tyler and Drew
Rachel is married to one of Brandon's college roommates and fraternity brothers.
Sara and her Drew. She sang in my wedding.:) Sara, Blakely and I laughed and had a great time just discussing LIFE!
After a full day of fun at Blakely's, we headed to Katy to stay the night with Brandon's Aunt Jane. The boys loved being in her house for the first time. They were in her pool by 8:15 the next morning.

We had a really great trip and will definitely do it again. It was so fun to see all my girlfriends that I hadn't seen in WAY too long. Thanks to Blakely and Jane for being great hostesses.

Blake, hope your neck is should really learn your limits when trying to prove your coolness to our children. :)
