Sunny Sunday

Hope you all had a good weekend! Since the weather was so nice yesterday, Jonah and I took our blanket and toys outside and played for a couple of hours!

Kisses from Riley!

More Kisses from Riley!

Afterwards we came in and Jonah had his favorite snack! Mac N Cheese!

Old McJonah had a farm...E-I-E-I-O

A couple of weekends ago I took Jonah to my parent's ranch for the day in Fairfield! He had the best time feeding the cows, riding on the mule, feeding the fish, watching the peacocks, feeding the chickens, and riding on my dad's tractor and bulldozer! Jonah roamed all over the place and was covered in dirt! He's definately all boy! He even managed to fall right in the middle of a cow patty right before dinner! It was actually pretty funny! After we cleaned him up, we had an outdoor picnic with my family to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday! Mama Sue cooked up an excellent Southern meal of fried fish, hush puppies, and all the fixins'! We had a great time hanging out with my family and look forward to our next trip to the 5R Ranch! Enjoy the pics!

Fun in the Sprinklers!

When we were little there wasn't a Lifetime Indoor pool or Mommy and Me Swim classes. We had the city park pool but no one ever went there because there was that one boy sitting in the corner of the pool and the water by him was always warm! Yuck! We had the country club but that meant that our parents had to get dressed, drive us there, and then we always ended up running up a huge bill on my parent's tab. In our defense swimming makes you very hungry and thirsty!

So, when all of those options were out we resorted to throwing on our swimsuits and turning on the sprinklers. We had more fun and spent hours jumping over the water, running through the water with your eyes closed, with your eyes open, your mouth open. We made up a ton of games with that water hose and that sprinkler! I firmly believed we learned a lot of critical thinking skills playing in that water! It was a blast!

Well, on Sunday at Jon and Amy's we turned on the sprinklers and let Kayla and Jonah loose. They had so much fun! Enjoy the photos!

Weekend Warriors

Josh and I took last Thursday and Friday off. Thursday we had tickets to the Byron Nelson but after we took Jonah to school that morning we ended up crawling back in bed to take a little nap and woke up at 3pm!! We couldn't believe we slept so long but it was much needed rest! We went out to a late lunch and that was pretty much our day! Friday we packed and headed down to Austin and stayed with Jon, Amy and Kayla on Friday night and then went to San Marcos on Saturday for Josh's fraternity reunion. At the Delt House while the guys were having their meeting Jonah and I had a picnic outside with our friend Kristin Deitch and her 6 month old son Cooper and 4 year old daughter Madison. After that most of the guys headed to the Tap Room for drinks. The Deitch Family and the Schneider family headed to the Outlet Mall and did a little shopping! Afterwards we all met back up at Outback Steakhouse for dinner. When we got back to the hotel Jonah and I crashed and Josh went back out with some of the guys!

Sunday was Josh's birthday! We went out for lunch and then unfortunately he had to go to San Antonio for a conference so he left to go down there and Jonah and I went back to Jon and Amy's. I decided that I wasn't going to try driving back to Dallas with a 1 year old without any help. So, I waited until Jonah fell asleep at 8:30pm! That way he would sleep the whole way home. I'm surprised he never woke up even with me singing my heart out to Josh Groban!! He must have been really tired! LOL. We finally made it home around Midnight! It was a long and tiring weekend but we had a good time!

The Fluke Invasion

Our good friends Jeff and Sarah Flukinger came up from Houston to visit and we had a great time! We are very excited because they are having a baby boy in August! So, Jonah will have a new friend to play with! While Josh and Jeff headed to the gym to pump some iron and I had access to a babysitter (aka Gran), Sarah and I headed out and had lunch at La Madeline's (love the tomato basil soup!), did a little shopping at the outlet mall and then treated ourselves to a spa pedicure! We all ended the day by going over to Johnny and Sarah's house for a few cocktails and dinner! We had a lot of fun! Now if we could just talk Jeff and Sarah into moving to Dallas ;)

New Addition

We have a new addition to the Schneider family!

Meet Bob!

Bob is a goldfish that Jonah won at school. We brought him home and Lauren was nice enough to bring over a fish bowl, rocks, fish bowl decorative accessories, water stabilizer, and a fish net! Then Jonah and I went to Walgreens and bought Goldfish food! So, looks like we have a new pet. When we first asked Jonah was his goldfish's name was he said "Ball" but that seemed to confusing so we decided that his name would be Bob!

Spring Fling

These are pictures from the Spring Fling at Jonah's school. Josh, Uncle Jerod and Gran were all able to attend! It was fun playing outside and seeing all the activities!
