Glad I'm a girl

We've been really lucky to have lots of family come and visit us over the past few weeks. First, Nana, Tata & our nephews and niece came for a few days at the end of June. The kids were in heaven with all of their buddies and Grandparents here. We did lots of fun things-went swimming, played the wii, visited a local aquatic center/water park, got shaved ices one day, ordered Rosati's pizza(we gotta make everyone try it that visits:), and the girls visited the American Girl Store & Bistro while the boys went fishing one morning. Here are lots of pics of that morning, what the boys did and what the girls did(I have to say I think the girl stuff was way more fun....:) I can't wait till we have a son Joey can bring along with him! Joey, his dad, and nephews had a blast spending some manly time together catching a few fish.

Joey and his phat bass(okay, that sounds like I just used a profanity, but I didn't!)

Don and his fish, not sure what kind of fish it is. But it looks rad.

Huckleberry Kai

Don even caught a snapping turtle-he looks like one mean lil devil.

Tata and his BIG catch!!! lol

While the boys handled slimy fish in the heat of the hot Texas sun, we ladies basked in the air conditioned comfort of the AG Bistro dining on delicious food. Nana's treat(thanks so much Cyndi!!) Notice the girls and how they match their dolls:)

The little girls, Shelby & Cali, loved "feeding" their dollies.

Aubrey & Ella pose with their Kit and Ruthie dolls. With Aubrey's new haircut, she really looks like Kit now, just darker hair! And of course Ella and Ruthie could be sisters.

A cute picture of my cute niece, Shelby. I'm so jealous of all of these girls tans!

A sweet moment between Cali and her baby doll(which she has since named Shelby)

Breakfast is served. It was deeeeelicious.
Better watch out Aubrey, Kit is eyeing your food.
Can you tell Cali loves sausage?

This is just too funny not to post. There are actual doll holders in the bathroom stalls at this place. I had to take a picture. You know me. They don't want you dropping these dolls in the toilet I guess. I thought that was quite thoughtful.

After brunch, the girls shopped till they dropped and scored some new fun accesories and clothes for their dolls. It was fun girly time with their Nana! We love you Nana!
So we all had a great time, whether it was fishing or shopping:) I'm just glad I was with the shopping group. hehe. Okay, so I do admit I like fishing too:)

How fun. The doll holders are genius. All women's restrooms should have purse holders.

I would have picked the shopping group too - those fish look slimy!


Fun for the boys and girls! love the matching outfits!
