The past few weeks have been busy. We have had some great time with lots of family! I think some of this is out of order and some pictures are really random, but thought I would post them all together anyways.
AL excited to see the planes at the Amarillo airport before we headed home.
Dave picked us up at the airport in Dallas and we headed straight to the lake to spend time with Dave's Dad's VERY large family for the day! It was super hot and humid. Check out AL's hair!On a fun little boat, one of many toys at the lake. Anna seems to be having a blast!Papa and ALI picked up my parents and my nephews, Brooks and Barrett, at the airport after the flew in from Italy. Wendi and Nick stayed in Italy another week for vacay while the boys headed to Honey and Papa's house for a week. Must be something great on tv.
Happy Father's Day Dave! You're the best! We love you!! Ash, Anna Lou and Baby Boy Hall
Happy Fathers Day Papa! You are the best, too! We love you!!
Trying to get her to wear her bow like this.
Doesn't take long for this to happen.
Got a slurpee with Dad.
Mimi came in for a few days and treated us to some great meals and had some quality time with AL while I went to Bible study, dr. appt, etc. Thanks Mimi!!
Lots of pool time for all of the monkeys. It's too hot to do anything else outside!
Honey getting love from Brooks and Anna.
Brooks is so sweet and gentle with Anna. (A little different than how he handles his little bro!)

Barrett is a little heart throb too like Brooks and loves to play with AL.
Papa with Barrett and AL.
How about some tunes?

These are just a few highlights of the beginning of our summer. Good times!!

Amarillo by mornin'...

Anna Lou and I traveled to Amarillo for a few days to hang out with Amanda, Hudson, Annie, and Amanda's parents, Pam and Mike (Pammy and Doc). Pammy and Doc have the most beautiful home and we spent our time relaxing by the pool, eating great food, taking pictures of our kids (Pammy is an amazing photographer) and just hanging out. What more could you ask for! It was an awesome few days and we cannot wait to go back. Pammy and Doc made it like a little vacation for Amanda, Annie and me. With all three of us pregnant all we wanted to really do was relax. And that we did!! We are thinking next summer might be a little bit different with 5 little ones to bring along!

Pajama Party!

The first day we went to the Amarillo Zoo, which was the perfect size for out little ones and only took about an hour to go through.

Pammy and the kids

Checking out the Baylor Bear.

AL loving on one of Hud's stuffed monkeys. I think she loved this monkey more than the real thing. Catching some rays.
Treats from Pammy.

I think this was Anna Lou's favorite part of the trip. Playing with the kitty.

More pool time.

Two peas in a pod...Annie and Anna. Annie's full name is Anne Louise. Isnt that cute!!

Taking a water break.
Another favorite activity of AL's.

We got a babysitter on Friday night and Pammy and Doc took us to a wonderful dinner.
Three pregos all due in the fall!
Our wonderful hosts!
The beautiful view from their patio.
Thank you Pammy and Doc for a wonderful "vacation" from the real world!

Party weekend...

We had a few fun gatherings this weekend with friends! My pics are out of order, but Saturday Anna Lou and I went to Kate's 1st birthday party and then dropped by a going away party for our friends, The Olson's. Sunday night we had a swimparty with our Bible Fellowship class to kick off the summer and the start of our small groups. AL and I also took Honey and Papa to the airport on Saturday so they could fly to Doha to visit Wendi, Nick and the boys! Dave was busy with 7 on 7 football on Saturday. It was a crazy, but very fun couple of days!
Dave giving swim lessons:)

Sweet Kate celebrating her first year! By the way, her mom did an awesome job on the party!!
AL, Kate and Brady

Wish I had more pics of all of the events, but this is all I got!
