You say it's your birthday, It's my birthday too, yeah

August is the birthday month for us! Both Ryan and I have birthdays in August as well as a lot of our close friends. Needless to say we’ve enjoyed lots of great dinners this month.

We were so happy that Max and Caster were in town for Ryan’s 31st birthday. We went to Musashis for dinner (we did the same last year for Ryan’s birthday, I am hoping it becomes a tradition because it is so good, and the boys love it). They had to leave the next day, but it made for a really fun evening out for their last night in Oklahoma.

Kathy, Layni and Amber took me to get manis & pedis for my birthday, complete with champagne and snacks. It was so fun, thanks girls, you are the best!

Jackson Stone turns 2 on Monday. He had his birthday party this weekend, man, does Jackson know how to throw a party! Here is Jackson, Lee Anne and his cake.

Well it wasn't Isaiah's birthday, but he was smiling so I had to take a picture. I am so glad he is feeling better. That is his girlfriend Sidney with him, they like to go to birthday parties together.

Girls Lake Weekend

So back in February or March, Lee Anne e-mailed the girls and asked if there was a weekend that we could all get together for a girl’s weekend. With weddings, families and everything else it took us over 6 months to plan something, August 15 it would be. Lee Anne and Renzi have a lake house at Grand and she invited us up there. Jackie flew in from D.C. and Emily Sue flew in from Austin, it was so much fun to have everyone together, it had been so long! We had a great weekend away from our fellas (and kids if applicable).
It was a full weekend of talking, drinking, dancing, boating (once we figured out how to work the boat) eating and lots of laughing!

The Summer in Pictures and Videos

We had so much fun with Max and Caster this summer. We were so lucky to have two extra weeks with them this summer, but their entire eight week stay went by WAY too fast, for all of us. It gets harder and harder to say goodbye each time. In January they will move from England to their next location, we are very anxious to find out where they will be living for the next few years. Fingers and toes are crossed that they live somewhere close and that we can see them much more often!!!

Here is a link to most of the pictures from this summer: Pictures
We also uploaded videos that we took this summer. You will probably not find them as funny as we do (just being honest). Videos

Football & Ice Skating

Ryan is a huge Liverpool fan, but loves English Football in general. We found out that the World Football Challenge: Chelsea FC vs. Club America was going to be at the new Cowboys stadium in Dallas. We thought it would be fun to take the boys to Dallas for the weekend and go to the match and to Six Flags.

The stadium was amazing, mostly because of the massive screens/scoreboards they have. We had such a great time at the match. Caster yelled (and I mean yelled) “go Chelsea” the entire time, which was funny because the majority of people there were Club America (a Mexican team) fans.

Fun in the Hotel Room

It ended up raining on the day we were suppose to go to Six Flags. Instead, we made a trip to the Galleria so that the boys could ice skate, it wasn't Six Flags, but it was still a lot of fun.
