Katie's 3rd Birthday

Clint had a rare weekend off last weekend, so we took the opportunity to get out of town and headed in Seguin to introduce Clint to Charlie's latest obsession, the Ranger, and to celebrate sweet Katie's 3rd birthday (an event that we could NOT keep Charlie away from once he heard about it!).  Although it was a quick trip, we had a great time, and certainly made the most of our weekend!

We spent all day Saturday out in La Vernia.  The Reed kids were out there as well and we had a great time exploring the ranch with them.  

Here's the beautiful little birthday girl.  I can't believe she is 3!!
Evie enjoyed her morning out at the cabin...
Jackson showed off his new rowing skills...
...and after watching Jackson, we had to take a turn as well.  Charlie loved the canoe!

Julia is an avid little fisherwoman.  She is so patient!
Climbing trees...
The kids are SO sweet with Evie and, not surprisingly, she adores them.  I love how they make her laugh. :)
This so brings back memories of Charlie swinging on the porch at the House on the Hill.  My kids love to swing--the higher, the better!
While the little kids were napping, Jack and Julia showed off their new gymnastics skills.  I was so impressed by all that they were doing.  They made for some fun pics.  As Jackson said, this picture of Julia "is a keeper!" :)

Bryan took Charlie for a spin on the 4-wheeler.  He was a little nervous, but SO proud of himself afterwards.  This has been a big topic of conversation ever since.
Ahh got a new horse (Astro) for her house.  Charlie isn't quite sure what to make of it, but Evie loves it!
We headed over to Dede's on Saturday evening for Katie's big party.  It was so much fun.  The kids swam and we all ate, and went home very, very tired. :)
Someone doesn't like having his picture taken.
Much happier in the water!
After their swim, Graeme remarked, "I've never seen anyone so happy about being squirted in the face with water."  :)
Evie loved swimming as well.  Note her sponges--she is obsessed!

I wasn't going to take Evie swimming, but sweet Meg took her for me.
Evie was SO happy to get to swim.  Can you tell how much she adores her Aunt Meg?  They totally bonded during their Austin weekend together.  I love seeing how excited Evie gets when she sees Meg now--it is too cute!  (and very unusual for the very skittish Evie :)
A few attempts at a cousin pic...

Evie was not thrilled when we remembered to add her to the picture... :)
Oh, Charlie.  The boy loves his food!

Isn't the birthday girl adorable??
Miss Katie in her new Cinderella dress.  She was SO proud.
No outfit is complete without a killer pair of heels... :)
Such a fun weekend, and a wonderful party.  So good to see everyone.  Thanks to Katie for including us and thanks to Amy for the photographic support (all the good photos in this post are hers :).
