Back to Texas...

We are heading out tonight, on a red-eye to Texas. (say your prayers that the babies will repeat their last red-eye performance) The occasion, you ask? Lara's wedding! I'm super stoked. The rehearsal is at the Swinging Door & ceremony and reception are being held at Briscoe Manor.

If there is one things the Smiths know how to do, it's throw a party. Oh and being well dressed at that party takes a close second. The boys have cowboy hats and overalls for the rehearsal and tuxes for the wedding, all compliments of Grammie and Paddy.

What are your plans for the weekend? A little bittersweet since it's only Wednesday, huh? Oh and to add insult to injury is the fact that the only thing acceptable to do in this 105 degree heat is being poolside with margarita in hand!?! Totally weirding me out that we are escaping to Houston to beat the heat, it's only 91 degrees there.

Sitting up sequence

We caught Dane's sitting up moves the other night. Please ignore the writing in the middle of the video, I had to download some program to clip the video and since it was a free trial they put their branding on it. Trust me it's worth looking at that compared to subjecting you to the whole 5 minute video! Does anyone have a free video editing program that they use/like?

My co-workers/friends(!) Julia and Laura watched our two boys plus Jennie and Mike's Kyle on Saturday while we attended Lauren & Evan's wedding. (Which was amazing btw). Picture to come soon. In the meantime here are the most recent pics of Devin and Dane that Julia snapped on Saturday night.

Happy (belated) 4th of July!

On Friday morning we headed to Boise to get our babies back! They looked so much bigger and are almost crawling.... ekkk. Good thing Darrell and I babied proofed the house while they were gone. Here are some pics of them showing off for us when we first got there:

Then on Saturday we headed out to the lake with Darrell's family. There was tubing, jet skiing, BBQing and beer... it was great! The tube was a three seater and I went out with Darrell and his brother, on our last ride both boys got thrown and I hung on for dear life and stayed on, I was pretty impressed with myself. Grandma and Papa even continued babysitting to allow us to have all this irresponsible fun on the lake.

Sunday we headed back to Portland and settled back into our routine. Monday is here and life goes on like the babies were never gone!
