My sixth birthday party was a blast. 

 My best friends were there.
 We bounced around like crazies.  Look at William's hair!

 Ninja cupcakes!
 Happy birthday to Keegan!

Happy birthday to me!  Mama loves shopping for birthday favors on Etsy.  We had ninja shaped crayons, water bottles with ninjas, a ninja sucker, ninja gumballs, and a fortune cookie that said "Keegan is lucky to have a friend like you." Etsy rocks.
Luke's 5th Army birthday party was lots of fun!

 Three Sisters Acres is lots of fun -- a fishing pond,
 and a pool.  And a friend to egg you on to get in the pool before you get on your bathing suit.

Which you do.

Happy birthday Luke!  Looking forward to many more!

It was a week before my birthday, and so hot outside, that mama decided to let Finn and me open our gifts from grandma and grandpa early.  

Yes!  The Ninjago board game!  

This was the first year I asked mama to let me use some of the money for toys, instead of all for College.  Mama reluctantly agreed.  
Cozy Finn, waiting to open his "because it's Keegan's bday" gifts. 

 A fun dinosaur puzzle!  I'm so into dinosaurs right now.

Keegan's present from the Minnesota Hochmuths.  Uncle Billy can't wait for his nephews to visit at Christmas.
The tomato plants were a big bummer this year.  We didn't plant until too late, and then it was hot, no rain, and so we ended up with one measly tomato that I picked one evening and ate on the spot.  We'll try again another year.


Mama took her first girls' trip weekend away to Atlanta since Finn was born to celebrate Aunt Shannon's bday. 
 The ladies had a blast!

Hanging with the Martins

Believe it or not, these are all the pictures of the 2012 Martin Trip.....
 Aunt Bridey enjoying her time with her favorite nephews, and Ga with all four of her grandbabies.

 Our sad attempt at a grandbaby picture for Ga, since Keegan blew this year's JC Penney picture.

Keegan's Preschool Gradulation

I rocked my way out of preschool just like I rocked it all through my four years. 

Very proud graduate, with very proud parents.

Mother's Day weekend in Port Aransas

To celebrate Mother's Day weekend, the whole family, including Ga and Papa piled into the van to caravan to Port Aransas.  We stayed at a resort with a BIG pool.  Finn was a little unsure of the pool. 
 Me, not so much.

 Drink anyone?
 We had a nice porch to play on.  Bunny, blankie and pa-panda (ask Brenden) enjoyed it too.
 The view.
 The hotel brought out smores on Saturday night.  Dee-licious.

 We didn't get enough water at the hotel, so we had to play on the slip and slide back home.

Uncle Chris came to visit.  He thought I was a hoot.  Can't see why.
