Easter 2011

My, my, how time flies.... It's obvious that I haven't blogged in 5 months, but life has been a little busy. First, I'd like to share our excitement about baby Boerger #3, expected to arrive the first week of November! We thrilled and nervous! Secondly, it's been difficult the last month and a half... While visiting my family for spring break, I suddenly developed pain in my lower leg/calf. I went to the emergency room 5 days after the pain first began because it was unbearable. Although I told the ER peeps what I suspected to be the problem, I was told I had a high ankle sprain. I came home and suffered nearly another week with excruciating pain and felt my suspicions were true since I now had pain in the back of my knee, swelling and inability to walk on that leg. Suspicions were true-- I had 2 blood clots in my leg and a clot in my lung called a pulmonary embolism. After several days in the hospital, I was released to care for myself at home. I'm on injections daily to thin my blood and hopefully prevent further blood clots from forming. Baby seems well. That's where the drama's been. Sooo, enough about that... Here's a few pics from Easter!

 These are the boys' classmates from their preschool.
 Here is our friend Caleb taking Cayden's eggs out of his basket!
 The boys in a frantic search for more eggs--quick, someone snag the chocolate before they OD!
 Our family: Camden & Cayden are 3 1/2 years old. Baby #3 expected in 6 months.
We were unable to spend Easter with our families, but we were happy to share it with our Tyler family!

Family Time!!

We took a little trip to San Antonio to see my family. It was a quick weekend, but always worth it to see family!

Here is Camden trying out his Uncle Matt's boots:
 And of course, Cayden being silly:
 And best of all, seeing the boys and their Grandpa having fun without a care in the world! Sorry Grandpa, looks like the boys have won this wrestling match!

Gone Fishing....

We piled up the boys' new fishing rods in the suburban and took a little treck to our favorite pond. Looks like Mommy still has it!  The boys caught this catfish....
 And Mommy caught this bass....

The boys promised their Grandpa they would call him as soon as they caught their first fish. They immediately remembered!


I scored BIG! I was able to get 4 tickets to a sold-out Jack Hanna event at our local zoo! The boys were SO excited to see Jack! The boys drew the most attention because of their outfits, including extra time with good ol' Jack himself! 


 Jack autographed a photo of him for the boys, as well as their hats which Jack greatly admired! The zoo keepers all know the Boerger boys since we frequent the zoo all year. The zoo owner, Mr.Caldwell, requested a photo with the boys by his personal photographer.


It's amazing how fast the year has flown by. It seems as though I just held them in my arms for the very first time and now they are 3. I love each new stage, though it also brings its own difficulties. Camden & Cayden are two totally different boys. Their one constant likeness is their deep love for elephants, giraffes & horses. Scott & I could not be more thankful for the blessing they are to our lives. Happy Birthday Boerger boys! WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!!

Our 5th Annual Lifegroup

We all met in Tyler years ago and we've decided that we would set aside one weekend a year where we bring our families together and catch up. We keep each other accountable and we stay friends, even though there are many miles between us. Here are the Boerger, Childs, Allaire & Schapansky families!

Quick pics!

Ok, ok... so it's been a while since I've updated. I found these in my July pics. The boys & I were wrestling on the floor and I was able to snap these quickly. I love how their expressions can change in half a second!!

A Little Bit of July....

July seems to have flown by faster than any other month. The boys are growing so fast! They are a month away from their 3rd birthday and they are measuring like 4 year olds! We've loved our summer!

Haircut Anyone???

Gotta love 'em!  Here's to mop-heads full of beautiful hair!!

Loving Summer!!

On those hot summer days, we do fun crafts like finger paint, puzzles, crayons, play-doh, bubbles, balls & sprinklers....
When that gets old, we do something extra special like going to the zoo with our great friends...

Boys are so much fun! They see life in a unique way. There are countless times when the boys are holding a parakeet on their seeded popsicle stick and they ask very important questions like, "Where do they make poopoo? Where are their hands? Where do they go night-night?"  I love the newness of everything to their young little minds.
