Concord Market Days

We took the kids to Concord Market Days. They had fun, although we got caught in a rain storm pretty far away from our car. Thomas had a dragonfly painted on his arm and Cecilia got two butterflies on her cheeks. The highlight was the balloon man, though... until Thomas's sword popped. Very tragic.

Cicerone Party

Here are some fun pictures from the Cicerone party last weekend. Eliana just adores her brother and sister (and they adore her in return); I love the picture of her and Thomas eating cake. I really love the outdoor pictures too--especially Eliana's big grin while she's hanging from the tree.

I was noticing recently that Cecilia hasn't been in a lot of pictures when we're out at social events. She was painfully shy from ages 2-4 and now she has hit the other extreme. If there are any children at any event we go to, we won't see her unless she needs something or the party's over. (She's also a goofball.) At least she's having fun!

Look at that Face

We had a really long day on Sunday. We went to a family party over an hour and a half away. On the way home, we stopped at a restaurant. Eliana has a habit of running her hands over her hair and her face. I think she came up with a rather stunning look--check out those eyebrows! :)

Here's a cute shot of Thomas and Eliana waiting on a bench while I was checking out at Old Navy.

More Houston

We went to a pool party at the Rossens on our last night in Houston. The Koennings were there too and all our kids had a blast playing together (9 in total). They had a great pool out back. I got to see Amanda and Dawn, whom I haven't seen since our last trip to Houston 3 years ago. We all worked at Texas Right to Life at the same time and enjoyed regular trips to Lupe Tortillas :) (not sure why they put the big pregnant girl in the middle...)
