Is that a... a... a Fuddruckers?!!

As many of you know, one of the luxuries of living in a place like Del Rio is that we are never at a loss for a Mexican Restaurant... Although you never know if that restaurant will even still be there the next time you go! However when you feel like Mexican food will just not quench your tastebuds, no fear... There is an All-Time American Favorite only 60 miles away!!! Yes, that's right, for just an hours drive you can treat yourself to a fabulous Fuddrucker's burger and shake, and even take in a Kohl's Department Store while you are at it!! That's right people, I am talking real civilization!! So this past weekend Richard and I left our two oldest with my Grandma and Grandpa (who just randomly happen to live an hour in the other direction, which really made our trip two hours) and we went to the city! This may sound ridiculous to some of you, but seriously, Del Rio is missing a few things... Target and some real restaurants!! Carter got to come with us, and as you can see, he really enjoyed lunch there, too!!

Finally, some long awaited good news!

Just a quick update... For anyone who didn't already know, Jeff has been rather unhealthy a majority of his life; ear infections, strep throat, asthma, sleepapnia... He has been diagnosed with it all. It is really hard for a mother to watch her child be so sick all the time, and this past month alone we have had so many doctor appointments, specialist appointments, sleep tests, studies... You name it!! Anyhow, we were able to get our primary physician and an ENT specialist to consent to surgery. It sounds scary to have my little big guy go into the hospital, but I think it is the right choice and the right time... So November 5th, at 7:30am Jefferson will have his tonsils removed, his adenoids removed, and a second, stronger set of tubes put into his ears! His pediatrician reassured me that he would be a new kid after this surgery... Is that good?!! Anyhow, I just wanted to share that bit of news, it is huge for me because we have really struggled with his health and anger issues (which are also supposed to lighten up after the surgery, because the dr. believes they are related to sleepapnia)... I am so scared for him to go under anesthesia, the last time he went under (for his first set of tubes) it was so sad to watch him wake up... But I think it is the right thing to do!! Right?!

Carter obviously has something on his mind!!

So to some, this video may be silly, but to a mom it is precious! Carter loves to talk... So I just had to take advantage of this adorable moment... (I know, cheesy mom talk!) Anyhow, I hope you don't mind watching the sweetest boy in the world that was born on June 20... (So I don't offend anyone who may believe that they have the sweetest boy in the world!!)

Too cute to pass up!

I just had to share these pictures of Kami, Jeff and Carter in the bath, it was really fun to watch the three of them! Jeff was really careful with Carter, except I think he squeezed a little too hard... but hey that is some brotherly love, right?!

The Best Kept Secret in Del Rio...

It's too bad for those of you that don't live here in Del Rio because you have to miss out on all of the excitement that our community has to offer... (Please notice the sarcasm dripping off that statement!)

But alas, we found a fabulous family fun center in the heart of Del Rio called... Wait, are you ready for it? BUMPY'S FAMILY FARM!

That's right folks, adventure, excitement and entertainment all rolled into one acre of dust, dirt and manure! Actually though, it was great fun! We went for a birthday party for JC, one of Kami and Jeff's bestest friends!

There was mini golf and water balloon battles and a petting zoo and a train ride and a pony!! That's right, one pony for 15 kids to ride on... You'll never guess how long that took!! Please join with me as we share the memories of the Bumpy's Family Farm!
