Well, the time has come to say good bye to one of our own. Ashley has been with us for a year, and while we've had our ups and downs (we can laugh about it now:)) we are going to miss her so much. She started off as Juliana's nanny but has become a part of our family and the girls love her to pieces. She is moving on up, all the way to Chicago. I know this is a good move for her and we are happy, but selfishly we are going to miss the heck out of her. Good luck Ashley - We love you and you know this will always be your home - Even though we made you give your key to Laura - hehehe

Our niece Isabella came over for some cousin time and it was so much fun. Olivia was a bit disappointed I must admit because when I mentioned she would be coming over Olivia got a brilliant idea that she would babysit. Babysitting would of course include holding her, reading to her, rocking her to sleep. . . . . . . NOT. Baby Izzie was having none of that!

Another season at Spirit Horse has come and gone. We will miss this ranch over the hot summer but can't wait to start back in the fall. Juliana has been coming here for several years now and each season she comes away little bit stronger. Thank you Crystal, Peter Pan and Mr. Charles for the wonderful work you do for these kids.

Despite the look on her face, trust me when I say that ALL the Brooks' were very excited to finally get out and enjoy some pool time

So lately Olivia has enjoyed spinning. Not like spin class, but rather like twirling until you become dizzy. She has gotten a few bumps and scrapes because of this past time but nothing too serious, so we just chalked it up to normal kid wear and tear, right? WRONG. At school she started spinning, got dizzy and took a tumble on top of a tricycle. This is what occured. . . . . .

For Mother's Day we decided to check out the nee Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas. What's cool about this park is that it is located on top of a large bridge on the interstate. You below you is literally freeway, and yet it is green and beautiful with lots of stuff to do. You can rent soccer balls, croquet sets, all kinds of games, there is a dog park and playground for kids including a splash park.

So after Mother's Day Breakfast, school is out and you take your little one with you. It's a great excuse for taking a whole day off of work. So we went home and got our matching comfy clothes on and officially started Mommy Livi Day! First stop - Ice skating! This was her first time.
