WooHooo.....Oh Yeah!!

WooHooo......Oh Yeah! That is Carter's favorite saying when he is excited about something! And he even does a little dance...

So, in honor of my youngest....I am shouting WOOOHOOOO OH YEAH! Yep - that is right - I am exited! On Saturday morning, I got on line to purchase much-anticipated George Strait Tickets for the Sept 26th concert in Cedar Park... Well, I ended up being bummed for the first 30 minutes or so. The tickets were $161 each plus the fees and taxes.... How in the hell is someone supposed to be able to afford that?!?!?

Well, after some much needed soul searching, and talking to my friends Kenneth & April who were also wanting to go, I searched tickets and had on hold 2 prime seat tickets! So with April on the phone, and the computer on my lap, I discovered that she was holding tickets in the row right in front of the 2 seats that I had we bought them! Caitlynn and I are going to see George Strait for our birthdays!!

Charlie decided that he was not a big enough George Strait fan to warrant $161+ for a concert - he was just as well listening to him on the radio or seeing him on CMT. Not that I can blame him, these tickets were ridiculous! But when am I ever going to be able to see the George in Cedar Park, the week of my birthday again!?!?! Probably never, I told myself! And really, we looked at getting tickets to the Houston show in August, which were about $125 each, but after paying for gas, food, hotel, etc. I am thinking I might come out ahead buying the ones in Cedar Park... atleast that is what I keep telling myself!

So, WOOHOOO OH a little and now to wait for September! And oh, yeah, Cailtynn doesn't know about them, we are goign to surprise her! Wonder how long that will actually last??

George Strait for my birthday....

I am so excited I can barely stand it! And I even have an exicted little girl!

I have always wanted to see George Strait in concert, and for one reason or another, each time he has come to Texas, we have not been able to go.... Well, he is coming to CEDAR PARK!! And it is 2 days after my birthday, and the day before Caitlynn's, and since it has been her dream as long as she has been able to talk, and mine a little longer, we are going to see George Strait for our birthdays!! And in Cedar Park! Talk about a dream come true!! No traveling, no hotels, no "bad" part of town for me to have to drive thru to get there!!

Tickets go on sale Saturday morning at 10 and people better stay out of my way! Nothing is getting between me and those tickets! So wish me luck..... bad part is, I have already told Caitlynn, so if I don't get the tickets I really am in trouble!

Splash Day was a splash!

This past Wednesday, the Elementary School had splash day. I think the teachers were tired of teaching and the kids were tired of learning, so they had some out door water fun! Luckily, being in Real Estate, I have the flexability to be able to go to all the school events which just happened to be one of my biggest goals when I became a mom. Anyway, naturally in Texas, it is already well into the 90's by lunch time, so the water activities were a welcome break for the staff and kids! There was a HUGE water slide....

And a dunking booth - that is Caitlynn's teacher Mrs. Truitt about to get dunked...She was such a fun teacher for Caitlynn's Kindergarten year - we were truely blessed that she was Caitlynn's teacher!

Needless to say, fun was had by all including this mama!!

Last Day of school!

The last day of school is upon us! I was really excited thinking about school being out until it dawned on me that the kids will be home all summer! What is a mom to do with 3 energetic kids for 2 1/2 months? Can you say....go crazy!!!

I will be updating the blog over the next few days. The kids have done some really adorable things recently that I want to share, but oh, where to find the time! So, until I get it all loaded.....enjoy this beautiful day!
