We had a surfer party at the pool with all our friends from the neighborhood and all our family from San Antonio came up too. I just want to thank everyone for coming! Matt had such a great time because of all of you who were there. He loved having all his cousins and friends there. It was so much fun I can't wait to get together with everyone again! I'll let the pictures speak for me. The slideshow is on the blog. Just a note....you can click on it so you can see the larger pictures and of course my funny comments. Thank you all for spending your day with us and thank you to all the Grandparents who helped with the party!!!!
Matt really liked his new black cowboy hat and sandbox that he got for his birthday. He got to wear his new hat on Saturday night at the horse races. He wore the black cowboy hat, a football t-shirt, khaki shorts, tennis shoes and a bandana around his neck. I wish I had a picture of that. It was hilarious but he didn't care. He had the time of his life at the races with his Nene, Great Tia, Great Granny, and Great Uncle Johnny. Romancing Mary qualified for the big race so she'll be racing again in 2 weeks!We also had a little party at Matt's new school. Sister Mary made Matt a birthday crown and we all had cupcakes! The best part was that Doug and I got to see a little of what goes on in class. They sang a few songs and acted some of them out. It was really great. Matt's teachers have been so complimentary of him so far. Mrs. Linda was so thankful that he always helps her clean up and she thought it was hilarious that when they talked about the Olympics Matt went on and on about how he liked Michael Phelps. Who doesn't? Since Matt has watched MP in the pool he's been a little more aggressive in the water which is great.
So we'll take a break this weekend and just have some fun over Labor Day. No traveling or big plans. Just the 4 of us spending some good family time together.
