Six Flags road trip

Yesterday our family and my parents headed to Dallas to take the girls to Six Flags. Camden and Claire were so excited, although they had never been. They didn't quite know what to expect, but still couldn't wait to experience the fun!! The weather couldn't have been more perfect and it was not crowded at all. I'm not sure how we managed to pick such a perfect day, but we were so happy!! There were no lines on most rides and if we had to wait, it was no more than 10 minutes! Just perfect!!
Camden was much more of a daredevil than we thought she would be. She loved every ride she rode, especially the Shock Wave and the Flashback! I couldn't believe she rode it, but she loved it!! Claire was much more conservative, only riding the "slow" rides. Both girls rode the Bobsleds, but Claire wasn't too thrilled with how fast it was. And after the Mine Train, Claire was pretty much done with the roller coasters:)
And this picture just makes me laugh. Camden was a little scared, Jeremy and Claire were thrilled and my dad was holding Carlyle so she wouldn't fall forward. Definitely a keepsake!!
I have to admit that I wasn't real excited about the trip to Six Flags. I'm not a fan of hot weather (without a pool nearby) or waiting in lines in hot weather. But, we had a great time and Carlyle did so well without a nap. After we left the park around 4:00, we headed to Pappadeaux for an early dinner. It was so good, especially since we were starving because we didn't have any lunch:) Thanks to Nana and Papa for joining us on the road trip. We all had such a fun day! We loved making memories with our family!!

Last day of school!!!

The last day of school came all too quickly this year. I can't believe Camden is officially a 2nd grader and Claire will start 1st grade! Where has the year gone?? Both girls had to be drug out of bed, but when they realized it was the last day and they were having parties, they quickly got dressed.

The best Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Aubuchon!!
Camden and Claire had a great school year and learned so much. They have progressed so much since the beginning of school. Thank you to Mrs. Aubuchon and Mrs. Hering for your love, encouragement and support that you each have shown to the girls. Our family truly loves both of you and are blessed that you have had such a positive impact on our daughters' lives!
