I'm Back and in effect

So, i got back a week ago... it has taken me this long to sit back at my computer... just havent been very motivated.

Here is my last set of pics from hawaii... the underwater camera.


i was glad to get home... i really missed joe. he missed me too ;) we have seriously been honeymooning ever since - and i LOVE it! :) i think i need to get away every year!!!





The best part of living here on the 4th of July is what i like to call the war zone... it is this field outside city limits (in Justin) where hundreds of pyros go and light off their own fireworks. words can not describe the mayhem... imagine smoke, and crazy people shooting fireworks off all in one place - i mean the BIG fireworks... so it is like the finale to a fireworks show that just goes on and on and on... add in some crazy bottle rockets shooting every which way, and screamers and fountains... times a hundred, and that is what you get here...

seriously, i am like a child. i LOVE fireworks - especially doing my own! we bought bottle rockets, artillery shells, roman candles, some fountains, and a mini pyro set for the kids to do whatever (with sparklers and fountains and smoke bombs etc) i think joe and i had more fun than our kids, but by the end, aaron was ALL about lighting off bottle rockets all by himself... too bad next year they will be illegal... we lured a bunch of friends there with us... we even got kysha and thomas b* (who just so happen to be up here for their prodigy of a 4 year old daughter who was doing a violin camp.) side note: seriously, summer is 4 years old, and can play violin SOOOO well... i mean WAY beyond twinkle - like the REAL classical songs. WOW!

Anyways, Happy 4th of July! it is good to be home (although, i miss hawaii) hopefully the rain here will stop!!!

Emily you are seriously my most fun adult friend. I love that about you! Maybe if I can manage NOT to be pregnant anymore in the next two years we could get together more often! (Seriously we have to before/if you ever leave TX!)If y'all aren't around the big D metroplex when David finishes in 2 years... more than 1/2 my motivation to live up there will be gone... well, not really, but you get my drift.
