Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Fun Weekend in Oklahoma

Last weekend we went to Oklahoma to visit Kristina and Kyle and see their new house, as well as visit Ashley and Kyle and celebrate Harris' 1st birthday! It was a whirlwind trip as usual. We got there late Friday night, and managed to stay up until 3:30am! With our early rising children, we were up early and getting ready for a 1st birthday party. We headed over to Ashley and Kyle's to celebrate with them. Ashley had a super cute farm animal theme, with precious decor and cute stick horses, hats and bandannas for party favors.I didn't have my phone with me at key points in the party (cake eating etc), so I only got this picture of sweet Harris (and I'm pretty sure this was the only time this little guy cried the whole party). He is such a sweet and good lookin little man. Preston had fun playing Knight/Princess with Kate. Always fun catching up with them! We headed back to Kris and Kyle's for fajitas, Spurs and more fun for the kiddos. Awbrey and Kendall LOVED Kelsey. They kept wanting to help me feed her and hold her. They were super cute with her. Preston and the girls got along great! They all played a ton and wore each other out! We had a blast as usual with Kris and Kyle (margaritas+hula hoops+Spurs win in Thunder country=FUN). It was another late night, but worth it! Great catching up with great friends, that's for sure! ON our way home we hit up the Arbuckle Wilderness. Preston always loves seeing all of the animals. It was a fun little stop to break up our trip. Needless to say, we all slept really well Sunday night!

New Ride!

Stephen has had his Tahoe since 2004 (before we were married)! After seeing it struggle through the last year and seeing the transmission starting to go out, we decided it was time for a new car! Stephen loved his Tahoe, so he knew he wanted another one and the exact same color, just newer. So here he is, with his new 2015 Tahoe! IT was an exciting day for both of us! We forgot what it was like driving around a new ride! Super fun! He's such a stud, he'd make any car look good! ;)

Memorial Day Weekend

This Memorial Day weekend, we did a lot of relaxing and playing with the kiddos! The kids are always SO excited when daddy gets home from work, and extremely excited for not just a weekend, but a LONG weekend with daddy! We played on the slip and slide and decided, if one was fun, two would be even more fun! Daddy and Preston both had a good time, while Kelsey and I watched. Preston also enjoyed the sunscreen. ;) We went on a family date night to Allen and after a delicious dinner at Blue Fish, laid down a blanket, relaxed, listened to live music and Preston got to run around and play. It got a little rainy toward the end of the weekend, but that didn't rain on our parade! We still had friends over for an indoor picnic and put our tent up in the media room! They boys had fun camping "out". We spent the remainder of the weekend playing outside, Preston played t-ball, we had a spontaneous BBQ and snuggled our babies. Absolutely love our family time!
Yay Daddy's Home!
