|Again....we are just straight up silly|

After we finished a fun weekend of celebrating Parker & Caroline's birthday, the boys and I stayed to make a visit to Ruston. We hadn't been since August, and frankly, I miss that place sometimes! David had to fly back to the Springs to work for a few days and then travel to CA for work.
Our first adventure was to visit our friends that now live in Bossier City. We lived in CA together and the boys sure miss hanging out (not to mention I miss my friend). We went to Sci-Port and just hung out for an afternoon. It was a great time for all!! Miss you Brown family!
|All the boys|
|4 boys to look at the camera at the same time....IMPOSSIBLE|
|Rafting down the river|
|Jackson was flying|
|and then Robert & Jackson decided to fix the plumbing in the bathroom|
|Yeah!! Picture with my friend! I look worn out :(|
Next up: Visit with Memaw, aka David's mom. We got to hang out with Memaw a couple times, too. The boys love playing at her house with her "old" toys. It's fun to see them playing with stuff that David played with.
|Sweet, sweet picture!|
We had lots of opportunities to play at Papa G's He has fun, fun toys at his house! Lot's of big boy toys. I love being able to share with the boys some of the fun I got to have growing up.

|Jack...ready to go fishing...just need some water|
We also went to Minden to visit with David's sister one afternoon. I have been kicking myself since we left...we didn't take one single picture!! I don't know why other that I just forgot! They boys had a great time playing with their cousin Lydia. It was great to be able to catch up with them...even though I didn't take a picture :)
One of my favorite memories of this trip: a lunch date with my daddy. The last time I went on a lunch date with daddy by myself was long before the boys were born. I called Aunt Ann and asked if she was available to come and watch the boys and she said YES!! So, Dad & I went to eat at Dowling's. We just chatted and ate, ate and chatted. It was great! I love talking with my daddy
|Aunt Ann brought all kinds of fun stuff for their play date. They boys LOVED the glasses :)|
Most of you know, but some might not. I have lots of cousins..I mean lots! It's impossible to see them all, or even most, or maybe even some. But, we did get to hang out with one set of our cousins. Stacy & I are 10 months apart. Growing up we did TONS together. Actually most people thought we were sisters. Actually, Stacy was on my first date with David and it was after her wedding that David & I got engaged. We have always been close, so when I do come in town we try to get together. This time we decided to meet at the park. They kiddos were so great together. They love playing together!
|I love this! Jackson & Jon Robert|
|Madison, Jonathan, Jackson & Jon Robert (I missed getting a pic with Micah in it)|
We actually met at the park a couple of days. The second time ended up having a little drama associated with it. We were all talking, the kids were playing. We ended up having some surprise visitors to the park. Stacy's parents showed up and we were visiting with them and my Aunt Lou & Uncle Billy showed up. So..there were lots of Scriber's at the park that day. Actually, it was only us there. While the kids were playing they decided to start playing baseball. Micah was practicing for real & then the little boys decided they wanted to try. Well, long story short.......Jonathan got hit in head by accident. I didn't think it was much to be concerned about, but Aunt Janice told me it was. She is a nurse and told me we needed to head to the ER. So we did. Aunt Lou & Uncle Billy drove Jonathan & myself to the hospital while Stacy took Jackson to Papa G. Stacy ended up coming back up to the hospital to make sure Jonathan was ok. She felt much worse about the incident than I did. It was an accident....no one meant to hurt anyone. But it happened.
Warning: If you get queasy, you might want to skip the next few pictures......

|Smiling with a head injury....|
|Stacy made me laugh....I'm usually not so good with treating gross things|
|See?? That was hard to watch! Jonathan slept through the whole treatment|
|I wanted a pic with Stacy. Too bad it was in the ER! Love you!|
It was too bad the next day we had to start our trip back. We had to head back to Dallas, so we weren't able to see Stacy & the kiddo's again. Jon-Jon didn't have any problems after he got glued up, just wish we could have seen the kiddo's one more time so they could see that he was ok!
On our way back to Dallas we made a stop at Grandmother's. She is Rachel's grandmother and is an amazing lady. She loves us as though we have always been in her family. She hadn't seen the boys since they were about 4 months old, so we made a quick visit to see her. She was so excited to see them!
|Love this lady!|
We finally made it back to Dallas where we spent a few days at my mom's house. We were able to go and see the Cato's. They are family friends who have always treated Erin & I like we were their grandchildren. They are very special people. They had to move out to Dallas to be closer to family, so we made a trip to see them.
|Special, amazing people!|
|Love Ms. Sue!|
|Love Auntie E|
|That's my girl :)|
|They sure do love each other!|
|Lots of playing!|
The end of January is a special time in our family. It's Parker & Caroline's birthday!!!! That's always fun to celebrate! We made the trip from the Springs down to Dallas just for them, so you know they are some special kiddos. Erin did an amazing job of doing a fun birthday party. You can read all the details here: Erin's blog . If we lived closer we would totally have a business together :)
