Grant loved the pinata....we were thankful for big kids like Blake and Caroline to help us out.

On Sunday, Grant turned 3 years old. He has been talking about turning three for a while and was so happy on his birthday to wake up and have birthday pancakes with a candle to blow out- twice! On Monday we kept him home from school to have a small birthday party at the park with his friends. It was a beautiful day and the kids enjoyed playing and the mommies enjoyed hanging out in the gorgeous weather. Grant was so happy to have his cousin Chloe come down for the festivities. Aunt Carol and Chloe got up early Monday morning to drive to Austin and we were so happy they did! Grant loves playing with and trying to "hold" Chloe and he was definitely happy to see her.
Grant is becoming such a fun little boy who loves his brother and friends so much. He likes to play outside on his scooter and bike, loves to fish with daddy, and really likes playing with his toys. Right now his favorites are GeoTrax and anything Lightning McQueen. He enjoys going to school three days a week and is learning to use his words and not his teeth or hands to get his point across. We love having him in our family, he is such a joy! Happy Birthday big boy, we love you!!

Mutton Bustin'

Tate has been talking about "Mutton Bustin'" since the rodeo last year and he was so excited to get to do it this year. While they have MB every night at the Austin rodeo they also have a separate event for kids who want to try it in the Youth Arena. We decided to let him do this thinking he might get nervous and back out at the last minute. However, he did not! He was nervous but he got on that sheep and rode and scored a 93! He won for the longest time in his group of 10 kids and was SO happy! He has been talking about it nonstop and looking at his trophy alot. It was so much fun to watch him, we just hope this doesn't mean he wants to pursue a career in PBR (professional bull riding) in the future. Thanks to my parents for coming down in the middle of the week to watch him and to Kim and Raegan and their kids for coming out. Tate loved having his friends there!
