Family Weekend of Fun

We spent this last weekend with my family in Arlington on a family trip. There were 11 of us in all: Jason, me, Jaden, Jaxon, Mom, Dad, Joey (my brother), Leslye (his wife), Tami (my sister), Jeff (her husband) and Cody (their son or better yet, my nephew).

We started on Thursday night with a meal together at Spring Creek Barbecue -- yum! Then we went back to the hotel and hung out in the gazebo outside and played Wahoo! and sang songs. It was lots of fun!

Then Friday morning after breakfast, we all went to play Putt-Putt. Mom and Dad took the kids on a round with them...

...while we played girls...
...vs. boys!
I would LOVE to tell you that the girls won...but we didn't! Oh, well. The boys didn't gloat too much and we had LOTS of fun!

Friday night we spent the evening at the Texas Rangers game. We went early so the kids could play out in centerfield. And they did. Jaxon even played this year. He got to do everything his big brother did and he was very excited.

Here he is getting to "field" the balls in the little ballpark:

And here he is, hitting the ball. He did get a couple of hits and was extremely proud of himself.

Here is Jaden showing me where he is going to hit his homerun when he got to hit it off the tee.

And here he is (notice the look of sheer determination) as he was hitting his actual homerun in the centerfield ballpark. He was very excited!

We all enjoyed the game... (Jason and I were there -- we just forgot to get our picture taken. :-)
...especially since the Rangers won!

And after the game, we got to watch a spectacular fireworks show! Woo-hoo!

Sunday, we went to church, ate lunch together and then headed off in our separate directions. It was a great weekend with family!
