Cole's Scrimmage at Cowboys Stadium...

On Saturday night we went to watch Cole play his first football game (in pads) at Cowboys Stadium!! He was pretty pumped, to say the least...and his little team is good!! It was just a scrimmage, but they did a great job against Grapevine/Colleyville! Lucy enjoyed her first visit to Cowboys Stadium...and she had so much fun cheering Cole on!

Jimmy is one of the coaches for Cole's team...he was born to coach. He's so good!
Lucy giving Cole a pep talk before the game started...
What a block!!
Go Cole Go!!!
Actually she was pretty mesmerize by the cheerleaders than the football game...
She even got a picture with a few of them!
Family pic after the game...
We got to tour the Cowboys locker room too!
Hopefully we'll see Cole play in Texas Stadium again as a Dallas Cowboy!! :)

My sweet friend from Colorado, Lacee, gave LK these adorable red and white polka dot shoes...that squeak every time Lucy takes a step. They have little squeakers that are built into the sole. They are so darling and Lucy LOVES them. So much so that she wouldn't stop bouncing the first time I put them on her, so she could hear the squeaks! The dogs thought they had new toys too! They were a little confused where the squeaks were coming from at first...

And these are size 4! 4's are a little big on her, but size 3 are too small! My baby girl has long feet!

Hard days...

Ever since we got home from Costa Rica, Lucy just hasn't been herself. I'm not sure what is going on, but it has been a rough few days to say the least! She's been fussy, moody, a bad eater and just not fun to be around. At least she is still sleeping good! I don't know if she's teething (she did not act like this with her other teeth), just not feeling well (she hasn't had a fever...but she has had some diarrea and a runny nose) or just starting to be a stinker. She's thrown a ton of little temper tantrums lately....and to be honest, it's totally freaking us out! We're not sure how to handle it. Last night I had a mommy melt down and just prayed that God will give Josh and I the strength, patience and wisdom to parent Lucy and learn how to discipline her appropriately and effectively. I went to bed early last night so I could at least be rested for another long with Lucy. Thankfully, today was a much better day! His mercies truly are new every morning. This video of Lucy at dinner tonight at Taco C made the past 5 days not seem so bad....I love her!!

Costa Rica :: Day 3

Day 3 in Costa Rica was spent at Playa Flamingo, about 25 minutes north of Tamarindo. Playa Flamingo is a beautiful area with amazing hotels/homes and pristine beaches. It was a great way to spend our last full day in Costa Rica. We were beach bums all day long....well, the boys played some. But, Marina and I soaked in the sun, read our books and enjoyed piña coladas! We all got quite sun burned this day!
We ended the day with one last round of piña coladas! Cheers to "pura vida" in Costa Rica!!
We ended up driving to San José that evening to catch our flight home the next morning. Our flight ended up being delayed 5 hours, but luckily we found that out before we went to bed on Monday night. So, to kill some time Tuesday morning, we drove to downtown San Jose to site see and do a little souvenir shopping.

In front of The National Museum...we didn't have time to go in!
And that "closes the door" to our time in Costa Rica! Can't wait to return!
We had an amazing time with The Simmons in Costa Rica....I think we all came back refreshed and with lots of fun memories! We sure did laugh a lot while we were there! It was my first time away from Lucy overnight, but I did great and didn't worry one bit about her (I missed her, of course)! I knew she was in great hands and having a blast with her G and Pops (Josh's parents)! A HUGE thanks to Julie and Wray for keeping Lucy....we are so, so, so grateful!! Four and a half days away was the perfect timing....I was so ready to see my Lucy girl when we got home!
