After our Waco day trip I wasnt feeling well Sunday. Just so tired. Felt better Mon then Tues started feeling back again with allergies. So we literally went no where last week and lounged around. These girlies have been stir crazy! Just one more week at home this week and then school starts next week! CANNOT WAIT!
Last Saturday (the 18th) we drove up to Waco for a short visit. My sister graduated from TSTC Friday night and we'd planned to go but decided on going Saturday instead so David wouldn't have to take off work and we could actually visit with them. We stopped first at the outlet mall on the way since they opened an hour early. We got there right when they opened and got the girls new shoes at Stride Rite outlet. So glad we stopped then because I got the girls each a pair and they were the last ones in their sizes and buy one get one 1/2 off and they said they wouldn't hold anything since it was tax-free weekend. I also got Rylie's "Santa" gift at the Disney outlet I'm excited bout.
We finally got to Waco at lunchtime and met Shelly and her girls Kinley and Presley. Kinley and Rylie were BUSY coloring!
I CANNOT believe they'll both be 5 soon!
Remster looking for trouble. She hated that highchair!
Presley was such a happy good baby! I hadnt seen her since Feb when she was a week old! So glad we got to catch up with these girls!
Then we headed to meet my mom, sister, and nephews at the childrens museum.
The girls had fun but my nephews didnt make it afterall =( SO bummed.
Rylie and Remy played for hours until closing.
Only picture of both girls' new shoes. Rylie's lightup-her first pair to do that and she's just over the moon about them. My camera and cell phone died after this photo. We had a great dinner at Buzzard Billy's after the museum and Rylie got to feed the hundred turtles in the Brazos river off the dock of the restaurant. She loved that. I sure miss Buzzard Billy's. We also didnt realize it was "move in" weekend for Baylor (the museum and BB is on campus) and saw a lot of freshmen moving in. OMG they looked like little kids! Since when did college freshmen look so young?! I suddenly felt old.
It was nice to be back for a quick visit. Til next time!
Last Friday David brought home a treat for his girls.
One rose for each of us!
Rylie picked the red one and loved it. Later that night Remy was in bed, David was finishing yard work and Rylie was helping me finish my closet. David came running in and said "the ice cream truck's coming! Do yall want something?" Rylie of course yelled "yeah!" So David bolted out the door, running full force down the street chasing the ice cream truck yelling and waving "ice cream man!" LOL Rylie and I were just dying laughing! So hilarious.
And she was in heaven with her ice cream treat. Perfect Summer night.
I cleaned out my half of our master closet last week and am so excited about it! I worked so hard during every nap Remy took and Rylie helped a little too. Now I want to just hang out in my closet lol And yes, I took photos!
I usually keep my closet clean regularly but it just got out of control last week and I just HAD to purge a lot of things! So glad I did!

Now I just need to finish David's side and it'll be all done! Amazing how much happier I am getting dressed in the morning in a nice cleaned out closet!
Last Thursday I took both girls to our neighborhood pool again. It was so perfect going last Mon but I guess I cant have 2 perfect days in one week Ha!
All Rylie wants to do there now is go down the big slide and swim in the deep pool with her floaty! Which is great!
So much more fun now! But Remy first experienced walking around the shallow kiddie pool with fountains and didnt want to go back in her floaty after that. So it was a struggle between watching Rylie in the deep pool and being across the pool at the shallow end with Remy and these slides blocking the view of Rylie and chasing after Remy who kept felling face first in the 1 ft deep water. lol We finally just stayed at the deep end and tried to keep Remy happy. We didnt last long though. We still had fun with our friends!

Allison is already swimming on her own with no floaties!
