Are you ready for a TON of pictures from our summer?
We started the summer of 2012 off with Jaci's first dance recital.  She had taken dance in Lockhart but we moved before the recital and didn't get to do it.  She was so excited about it!
Getting her hair done. 
Pretty tight rope walker! 
Jaci and her friends.
Tap routine...All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth. 
We added a kitty to our family. 
The puppy doesn't love the kitty... 
Jaci does. 
Of course they love Alli too!
I tortured my nephew by putting him in a basket for his one year pictures.
(His mama made me do it!) 
We celebrated Tyler's birthday! 
And Reed's birthday!
We started the ODT allergy treatments for the boys.
(More on that later!) 
And then there was Fandangle...
Fandangle is a big outdoor musical that the people of Albany put on each summer.  It is a HUGE production!  It takes up a lot of time and there are months of practice but it is amazing.  This was the first year the kids were in it.  They loved it! 
Square dancing. 
Jaci was a little devil. 
The boys were bobcats and bearcats. 
Jaci was an Indian Flower. 
Relaxing backstage with daddy. 
More dancing. 
Tyler and his partner Cambree. 
All of the people are local people who volunteer. 
Little Devils. 
Prarie Kids. 
Little Devil 
My Indians 
Waiting backstage.
After Fandangle was over we loaded up and headed South to meet up with Meme for our 2nd annual 4th of July trip.
We went through Lockhart and stayed with Gale for a night. 
The kids love it there and miss it so much. 
Meme spent a lot of time taking the kids out Kayaking and fishing.   
She is pretty awesome! 
She would take one kid out for a couple of hours and then come back and get the next kid and then the next. 
It was a lot of work! 
This is the view from the camper.  It is so relaxing! 
Kayaking is tiring. 
When they weren't on the water, they were pretending to be... 
We spent the 4th of July at the beach. 
Playing in the water and fishing. 
The rest of the summer was pretty much a blur.  After we returned from the coast I went to my first Premier Designs National Rally.  It was amazing and made me so proud to be a part of this amazing company.   After Rally I had a couple of Dr appointments and it was determined that I had a bulging disk and bone spurs on my spine and they were doing a lot of nerve damage and I had to have surgery on my neck the next week.  I had a C-Spine Fusion on July 24th and that pretty much took me out for the rest of the summer.
Thankfully I had a lot of help during that time. 
I have no idea why she decided to walk the dog to the mailbox without shoes on.  It was a sight to see her being pulled through the yard by the dog trying to stop and pick up the mail she had dropped. 
We did a joint Birthday party for Jaci and Tyler in August. 
We have a brand new amazing pool here and the kids really wanted their party to be there.  They had a lot of fun! 
The kids on the awesome water slide! 
All too soon the summer ended and it was time to head back to school.
This year I have a 4th grader and two 1st graders.
How is that possible? 
We finished off the summer with a little dove hunting over Labor Day weekend.
Overall it was a good summer, full of Fandangle, weekly trips to Denton for the boys doctor, and fishing and swimming!
Next summer I just hope to avoid the surgery and sickness that ran through our house.
