The Hawkins Family

Saturday, August 28, 2010


I got to meet Tucker about two weeks after he was born and have not been able to see him since then.  It is amazing how much babies change in almost 3 months.  I definately have some picture overload on this little man.

I haven't seen Kendall since her birthday party.  She has grown SO much.  She moves with a purpose.  She loves to walk, loves to explore, and LOVES to talk.  (I wonder where she gets that from?)  I took WAY too many pictures of this little girl.  I will try not to overload you...OK I lied...major overload.

Alexis was not impressed with Kendall's new bow look.
This girl wakes up with her hair in a hot mess!

Don't you just want to pinch those cheeks!

Her favorite new toy was my suitcase.  It lived in the
living room...aka my bedroom

Shoes and purses.  This kid is SO related to her
Auntie E...awesome!

Kendall loves her "bear"

She loves to ham it up for the camera

The Tunnel

Mason has this giraffe tunnel. I don't know who bought it for him (it was his favorite Auntie E), but he has finally taken a liking to it. I think that it is funny that he brought it with him to Aunt Alexis' house. Mason always wants Kendall to do what he wants and he gets frustrated when she doesn't listen to him.  He was super excited when she took the plunge and went through the tunnel...with a lot of coaxing from Ashley.  Anyway, many memories were made in this tunnel and I thought I should share some of the pictures with you.

Hurst Water Park

On Saturday, we went to the Hurst water park. Hurst is the actual city that Alexis and Ashley live in. The city has this neat little local spot to cool off at. It is VERY kid friendly, but it does offer a couple of “big kid” slides. If you are a Hurst resident (and can prove it) the cost is $1. For everyone else, it is only $5! (Not bad for all of the fun that it offers.) Everyone had a great time. Kendall and Mason played in the “sprinkler” section, the adults took turns watching the kids and going down the big slides, and poor Tucker slept through the whole thing. We got some great pictures…especially of everyone going down the slide.

*Disclaimer: The first few pictures have awful color.  I have been messing with my manual settings and changed the White Balance and have not gotten into the habit of checking ALL of my settings.

Breakfast at Chez Moi

On Friday morning, I went out to Frisco to have breakfast with Jim and Beejae, Taris' parents.  The restaurant, Chez Moi, has a lot of Beejae's art on display.  The food was great and it was so nice to catch up with the family.  I didn't get any pictures of the three of us, but I did manage to get a few.

Baby Tanner

We had a baby shower for one of the employees at work. We haven't had any babies born within the office so this has been very exciting for us ladies!  I think I can't wait to meet this little miracle.
