Rainfall in a 24 hour period.
Here are a few pictures I borrowed from friends and online.
And, I don't know these people but this was at a Jack In The Box just a couple miles away.
Makes me laugh.
Bob and Clair came in for Becky and Allens wedding and before we knew it, they were gone. Their trip went so fast but we sure enjoyed every minute of having them here. The boys absolutly adore them and love playing with them. As a kid, I remember Bob making simple every day things like playing cards and piece of paper the most fun things. It was so fun to see him do that with my kids on this trip.
Bob and Clair,
We all love you so much an we can not wait to see you agai. Hopefully really soon!!!
Here are a few random pictures from their visit.

It's finally here!
This weekend, we celebrated Becky and Allen! We headed up to Austin mid day on Thursday and got there just in time to hang out a bit and get ready for the rehearsal. It was so exciting to see everyone come together to "rehearse" for the next day. Hotel Saint Cecelia was beautiful. After the rehearsal we all hung out and headed to dinner at FIXE. Dinner was delicious. The boys did SO SO SO well the whole afternoon/evening but got very tired. Chase actually fell asleep on two chairs.
I loved every single detail of the wedding. Becky and Allen put so much time and effort into every single thing. It was all so beautiful and the attention to detail showed in every part of the wedding from the ceremony to the cake table, the welcome table and Mad Libs with Polaroid pictures, to the personalized Jenga game and the kids favor boxes.
The ceremony was beautiful! Allens friend, Ford, did an amazing job officiating. And the two Ring Security guys were AWESOME! Becky and Allen were absolutely glowing and it was hard to hold back the tears.
The reception was crazy fun from the photo booth to the Jenga game. Dinner was delicious, the drinks were plentiful and the company was so fun. Dads speech was heartfelt and sweet and I loved watching Allen and Beck dance, even though they said it was so awkward. Around 9 I looked at Allen and Becky and said we only have an hour left! The dancing hadn't even started! We all had a really nice time. The boys loved Jenga and dancing. Chase was a hit through it all. He would go put on new photo props and walk out showing off for all to see. Barrett and Colt just ran around like crazy men enjoying themselves, drinking coke!
At the end of the night, we sent off Becky and Allen through a line of sparklers. They headed out with a few friends to the hotel down the road while all the old folks (and those of us with kids) headed off to bed.
It was an amazing day. An amazing weekend full of amazing precious memories. Becky and Allens friends are so special and fun and having all of our family there was so special. Getting to know Allens family a bit better was really great too.
I'm so happy to welcome Allen to our family. I love seeing how much he loves my baby sister and I know Becky absolutely adores him. I am so happy for them and I can't wait to see what their future holds... Hopefully, lots of nieces and nephews they will let me baby sit!
And, I had to include some details (some I borrowed from the internet) from the hotel we stayed in. Hotel Saint Cecelia was amazing! I loved every single thing about it. Such a fun fun place!
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY WEDDING
BECK AND AB
We love you guys and are so very happy for you!!!!!
