I grew up in Mansfield. Back when it was small town. Think Kowbell rodeo, Friday night football games, hanging out in the 7-11 parking lot. I went to school with a lot of the same friends from kindergarten to senior year. I loved my high school and have great memories growing up. Logan grew up in Arlington and moved to Mansfield his junior year. We met and became friends one month before graduation. That’s us in the prom picture below. Who would have known then that eight years later we would get married. We showed that picture to Ezra and he thought it was so funny. We do too. Top left pic is of me and my girlfriends my junior year in high school on my 17th birthday. That’s my Dad’s 1964.5 mustang that I drove and hated back then. I would drive it in a heartbeat now. I had great girlfriends! Top right is from a pep rally. I was super involved in high school. And the same for the bottom left pic. Senior year homecoming week. Mansfield high school class of 1995.I still can’t believe we’re old enough to go to a 20th reunion. It was a fun night and I’m so glad we went. We’re in for the next at 25!

We got a new kitty. Pete the Cat. Ezra and I rescued him one day back in May on our way home from baseball practice. He was walking across the street with his mama and two other kitties. We spent 45 minutes trying to coax him out from a bush and finally got him. He was super scared and super tiny. The vet thought he was about 6 weeks old. He’s about four months old now. He’s very sweet. He’s very energetic. And he’s very patient with Annie girl.
Doing anything and everything to stay cool. 106 degrees predicted today. So how about a little painting. Click here for Van Gosh #1 at 3.5 years old. Same age as Annie girl right now.
Have you heard of Hicks Airfield? We’ve lived in Fort Worth for 12 years and never knew. I discovered it last month in a Tanglewood Moms blog post. It’s this tiny airfield in north Fort Worth where you can go watch small planes take off and land. And there’s a little restaurant out there called Beacon Café. It sounded like something that my kids would like so I convinced Logan to drive out there on a Sunday morning. We went for brunch and I’ve already decided we’ll be back again next month for my birthday. Their pineapple pancakes were to die for. I can’t stop thinking about them. After we ate we went to check out this plane that was in front of the restaurant. The pilot had parked it there when he went in for breakfast too. He offered for us to get in and check it out. Annie lasted all of about 10 seconds but Ezra was in heaven. A great morning!
