It's always so exciting leaving town for a fun vacation. The kids were super pumped in the airport when we were headed to Texas. We had our annual Cain Watters meeting this summer...and of course our annual visit w the Spencers! This time we brought the kids along and enjoyed summer time: Paris style. It was so much fun! The Spencers are a wonderful, super fun and very laid back family. Our kids got along swimmingly and enjoyed all the outside fun.
Child labor in the airport. :)
Our first night we had dinner at Jay and Gays House. Clay and Maurine, Clint and Rachel, Daniel and I and all our kiddos enjoyed the evening. Dinner was SO GOOD as usual from Gay. And the kids all played like they had known each other for years. :)
Fishing from the dock
The pond is stocked and the fish were eager. Drop a line, catch a fish...about that fast. :) It was catch and release to the aquarium. :)
Clint helping Isaac.
Daisy got stuck w the fishes sharp fins...but got tough and tried again. GOOD JOB CITY KIDS! ;)
There were 10 small children Daisy's age and under on the small dock! HA. No one fell in! Miracle. :)

Rachel found the cucumber lime gatoraid!! It was pretty tasty...but certainly different.
Got take out from Taco Delite. The ice alone is worth the visit. :)
We spent some time out at Jay's lake. We rode jet ski's, fished, played w the paddle board and jumped off the dock. We also had some yummy smoked brisket.
Gay on baby duty. :)

The mud on the bottom of this lake dyes your feet a golden brown...as well as your toe nails...thankfully mine were painted. Sorry Dan...eeeewwwllllck.

Camp Deer Run Worship on Sunday Morning. So fun to see the FAMOUS CDR IN PERSON!!!
Couselors and campers signed their names.
Jayme was releasing a tadpole-grown-to-a-frog into the "wild" with many onlookers. (The poor frog didn't have a prayer!) He was chased and caught and released 50 times. Poor guy. Then the creek fun ensued...
These Texas peaches are like a natural dessert. They are amazingly sweet. I could eat 6 a day!
Rachel w a little appreciation from her kids. :)
In Dallas for our meeting. :)
Went to lunch w Amanda and Joe. :)
Ate dinner at the Purple Cow.
Colbs and Nolan huggin' it out at bedtime. :)
Spencers and Joneses do DALLAS.
Here's a little tip if you visit the goats in the Dallas Zoo...DON'T take your map w you. ;)
We had planned to go to a minor league baseball game...but it POURED RAIN. So we went to Celebration for dinner. It's the second time we've eaten there. It never disappoints! It's southern home cookin'. And you can get seconds on your food and the sides are endless. The break they bring out is so good. It's a MUST if you are in Dallas. :)
We also took these home...carried them on and everything. :)
