One of the best things about living where we do..

I love living where we do in The Woodlands....

It's a hike up 45 from Houston, and Andy may have an obnoxious commute...

but isn't it worth it when you get to experience this???


Alright, so the deer by our house aren't as tame as the ones at Old McDonald's farm where we went today..
I like this one....like they've said their goodbyes and are on their way...
But in all seriousness, one of the best reasons about living where we do are friends like the Cocke's....Addison asks for Beckett several times a day

Today we loaded up the kids all in one car and took a little road trip to Humble to Old McDonald's farm. Sheila's and my favorite part was probably the Starbucks and conversation in the car on the way there. Thirty uninterrupted minutes of conversation and coffee that's still hot by the time you get to drink it are both a big deal!

We had fun feeding the animals....
Addison liked checking out the ducks. When we left she said, "See ya Ducks!"


Graham just took everything in....such a sweet baby, can't say it enough.
Addison's favorite part besides the hay barn was probably feeding the sheep...
who were a little eager to eat.....
and actually grabbed the bag of food right out of her hand..

and then it was on to the hay barn, which reminded me of a smaller version of the barn at the Oil Ranch that was so awesome as a kid.

Beckett was very excited.

Addison loved running around in the hay and threw an all out tantrum when we had to leave


I put this picture in here only to show you the MANY school buses that were there. This would be why we only stayed 45 minutes because there were probably at least 700 other kids there who wanted to run and play in the hay too....
This picture is blurry but it makes me laugh because this was Sheila trying to grab both kids and make a run for it as the field trip kiddos started to take over.

I so saw the title of the post and thought I was going to open up your blog to a picture of my family. JUST KIDDING. :) :)

So fun. In all my years living here...32, I have never been there. Need to go...need to go. Looks like a fun day and a beautiful day to enjoy it!!

Call me and lets get a playdate in the hood set up.
