Pump It Up!

Mommy and I met our new friends, Miss Kimba and her son Caden, at a very fun place called Pump It Up today. It has lots of inflatable jumpy things and slides. Caden and I got out lots of energy, but I think we made our mommies a little tired.
Miss Kimba and her family moved here this summer like we did. We met her through Mommy's good friend, Christine. Kimba and my mommy were both in Christine's wedding. I'm glad to have a new friend!

My New Cousin

I am happy to announce that I have a new baby cousin, and guess what? She's my first girl cousin! Her name is Hayley Morgan Dreyer and she was born on Friday morning. Her Mommy is Aunt Melanie, my Daddy's sister. Uncle Doug is her daddy, and Davis is her big brother.
Welcome, Hayley! I can't wait to meet you!

Rain, rain, go away! (pease-That's how I say please.)

It has been raining here a lot lately which puts a damper on my outdoor play. I really like being outside and Mommy says we can't go out when it's raining. We did stay dry on our way to church and the store today with our raincoats.

The Rest of My Time in Texas

Nana took me to the Discovery Science Center which had all kinds of neat things to examine. Nana and I are playing at the sand table here.
The science center had different centers that you could play in like this veterinarian clinic. I'm helping the kitty take some medicine.

Nana, Grandpa Sam, and Mommy took me to the zoo on Friday. Even though the weather was cloudy and a little cool, I enjoyed seeing the animals and doing one of my most favorite things-running around like a crazy man! We were all tired after that trip.

Still in Texas

Nana took me to a really neat wildlife museum today. We saw all kinds of animals and got to play on a playground that had a real tractor, train, and fire truck that you could climb into.
My cousin, Will, and his parents were in Tyler for part of our visit. Will and I hadn't seen each other in a few weeks, so we were very excited to get to play together.

Visiting Old Friends

While in Texas, we visited several old friends. Actually, they were all Mommy and Daddy's friends before I came along.
Daddy's college roommate, Shane, and his wife, Holly, now have three little boys. Matthew, their 2 1/2 year old wasn't at home when we visited, but I had fun playing with their 4 month old twins. Daddy and Shane both agree life has changed a lot since they were in college.
We also got to see the Hargraves. Daddy and Mommy knew them from a church they were a part of in Texas. I had lots of fun at their house. Mommy and Daddy said it's very nice to see old friends.

Traveling to TX

We went to Dallas to visit my Aunt Melanie, Uncle Doug, and cousin, Davis. They will have a new baby in their home in about a month. I had lots of fun playing with Davis and teaching him how to make lots of waves in the bath tub.

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

When Daddy was little, he and his sister would make a birthday cake for Jesus every Christmas. This year, I got to do the same thing at Perpy's house. We sang "Happy Birthday" to Jesus and I helped Daddy blow at the candles.
Perpy gave me this cool cop car for Christmas. Thanks, Perpy! I will have lots of fun catching the bad guys in this.
