Summer, Summer, Summer-time

What a F-U-N month we've had!! We started summer off right with a trip to Hawaiian Falls with the Smiths and the Bowdens.  Since WCS got out of school in ALL schools should we had the park basically to ourselves that morning.  It was fantastic, not too hot and a wonderful way to kick off Summer 2013.
Ready to GOOOO
Wave pool action
 sweet Ainsley hanging with Ally
 Back in March we added some new landscape in our back yard and these big rocks are Brady's FAVORITE.  He says "eee" all the time for tree and wants to be outside every minute he can
 When summer hits so do errands with mom.  They go much smoother with enormous ice cream cookies from Target
 We also got a pool this summer....:)
 still fun even if it's a white trash baby pool
 How many Woods will fit in a Wagon???
 Ally had swim lessons with Mrs. Back again this summer and is a great little swimmer.  Notice the three boys in the background...pretty typical--Daddy showed up to watch his princess, Ryan is playing on the phone and Brady is crawling everywhere!
 pool party at the Farmers
 little 14 month stinker
 Waco has a FANTASTIC Farmer's Market every Saturday and we love it.  Hope to go back soon
 Ally and I went to Lila's dance recital
 we watch a lot of baby Einstein,
and swim. 
 This week Mark and I celebrated our 14th anniversary!! I cannot even remotely believe that we've been married 14 years!  For fun I let Ally dress up in my wedding dress.  She was SO excited and Mark was loving his pretty princess.  Ally was so sweet and asked if she could wear this dress when she gets married?? She's the best.  Love her!  
 Ryan went to Midway baseball camp and had fun afternoons with his buds.  
 Craft time with Ally girl
 Grandma watched Brady every day for 5 days so I could teach kids Zumba camp.  THANK YOU!! It is so nice that she comes over to our house to watch the kids so often....we love our Grandma!
June was very fun, not too busy and a wonderful break from insane May.  My kids went to VBS at FBC Woodway and loved it! I stayed home with Brady and I loved that too :).  

We love summer!

Memorial Day at LBJ

We had a wonderful weekend at the lake for Memorial Day this year.  It is one of my favorite places and I love the my kids get to experience fun at the lakehouse.  This year it was just mom and dad and the Wood five pack which was different for sure.  We missed the cousins!

Check out this cute snaggletooth:)

White Sox

What a season! Mark had the privilege of coaching Ryan's little league team again this year and they both loved every second of it.  The competition this season was much more intense and I'm not so sure my poor heart can take the next level of play.  Ryan is a great player and he pitched this year and played short stop, and did a really good job at both.  We were SO proud of his leadership, effort, attitude and his overall play this season.  He made some new friends and has a cool new nickname "Miggy" :).  Having Brady at the games was a challenge and I couldn't have made it without Honey, GP and Grandma.  THANK YOU!

Ryan was #10
White Sox fans

 Ally loved going to the games to play with Brinley and Madeline
 Ryan and his Best bud Jake
 always entertaining :)
 and a mess.  I think my dad logged more baseball hours than anyone between Ryan, Stacey and Wyatt...can't imagine when we have Coyt, Crew and Brady and James Wright playing too...whew

 whatever works!

 more fans!
 love this picture!
 before the first game-----HILARIOUS pic neither can smile...too nervous
 pep talk time

Mark and our friend and assistant coach Steve talked baseball every single day for 4 months (I think they love it just as much as the kids:)). The Sox finished in third and only the top two teams move on to the city tournament.  I was equally sad and relieved.  It was a wonderful season and I'm going to enjoy the little league life as long as possible! Ryan has been asked to join several select teams and we're holding off on that as long as possible.  I know that one day that will be our life but not yet... 

Love watching you do your thing Ryan.  You amaze me! I cannot believe you are almost 10.  Please stop growing up so fast!!!
