Gymnastics Competiton Season 1 in the books


Wanna B's


After dealing with this mess all summer.

I got a new phone. 
Did a software update last night. 
Entered a new passcode. Forgot it 2 hours later when my phone died and I needed to enter the passcode.
Entered about 10 different potential passcodes.
My phone disabled itself. Which by the way is super annoying. 
Had to erase all the data and start over. 

Now lets address those  
Christmas cards with no contacts.

Halloween 2014

The gymnast, the (missionary) zombie,
and Elsa twins.

Oh and this big perv.
Wearing my shorts and his mustache.
Dressed up as Prefontaine.

He did have a wife beater.
But was afraid his armpit hair may be against the health code.
Hmm... but those shorts aren't?

That night we went to our old
neighbor's house.
Here is our posse.
Sweet friends
Lazy kids who don't walk door to door.
They like to be driven.
Zombie siblings.
Bella helping her baby sis.

This Year's HOT Fair

We almost didn't make it out.
But I couldn't break the 5 year tradition.
So here we are at the Waco fair and rodeo.
A good time by all.

Day 4

We met Haley, Stephanie, and her family for brunch.
It was so good getting to catch up
and meet Steph's little boy. Beautiful family!
Brett and I got tired on the way home.
Got a pedicab.
It only cost us an arm and a leg,
but we saved our feet from blisters.
My Uncle wanted to take us shopping to get us a fancy scarf.
He is something else.
Generous would be the word.
That evening it was time for dinner.
It was a the 21 club. Pretty amazing history there.
"Officially opened on January 1, 1930, '21' is one of America’s most famous speakeasies from the Prohibition Era. Designed with its own disappearing bar and a secret wine cellar to hide the illegal liquor from prying eyes, it’s a place where celebrities and captains of industry have wined and dined for more than 80 years." --

We are in the "secret" wine cellar.
My dad's brother. 65 years young.
The reserve...
We had a terrible time.
A night never to be forgotten.
The next morning we headed home.
Thank you to my sweet mother-in-law for watching our nuggs.

Day 3

We woke up at 5 in the am to watch the Today Show.
Sweet Brett came with me.
However, he could only hang for a bit.
I stuck it out and became famous.

Hey Carson you're in my screen shot... could you scoot.
That afternoon we went to the federal reserve.
They are pretty uptight around there.
So no pictures of that deal.
We did get to see other counties bars of gold.
Pretty sweet, huh.
I belong to a family of nerds.
Later that evening we met up with my family at the hotel.

Then to dinner....

Then to the bar named after us.
Cheers from the McGee's...

Day 2- New York

So Brett and I started a family about 5 minutes after we got married.
So, we didn't really have the chance to do the little things
couples have the pleasure of doing before kids.
One of those things for us is we have never really gotten to exercise together.
We both love it, we have just never made it a priority to do that together.
And now who wants to pay a sitter to watch the kids so we can go run.
One of my favorite memories of this trip
was running in Central Park with Biggy B.
Trying new things together in twenty fourteen. 
We went to museums, shopping ,and eating this day.

Almond restaurant has the most delicious
brussel sprout salad I have ever had!!

That night we met us with my family at Villagio before going to see
The Book of Mormon

I do love my cousins! They are like brothers to me!

New York Day One

The last week of September Brett and I went to New York to celebrate my uncle's 65th birthday!
It was such a fun trip.

We started the trip off leaving home before the sun came up.
But it gave us a full day to explore the city.
Eating lunch at Patsy's Pizzeria.
Then meeting up with my uncle at Sarabeth's for a drink.
That night we met Haley (my dearest and college roomie)
 at The Dutch in Soho.
I did not capture it on film. I guess we were having too much fun. Or it was the cruddy go phone I had.

Rowan is 7

Rowan, my little mister, turned 7 a few weeks ago.
He wanted a baseball themed pool party- 

where everyone played football.
Oh and baseball pinata.
Got it.
Love that kid. Glad he is ours.
