Our Summer Trip Down South

A week ago, we headed on down to South Texas for some family reunions and good lovin’. We had a wonderful baby shower for my cousin Eric and Erin, and then finished the afternoon off with a 1 year Birthday Party for our cousin Kieran.


Here is the crew at the Fort Clark Pool (where I spent my summers as a child!) Ben, Drew, Sav, Ethan

Kids and balloons…what an obsession, right? Check out Savi’s awesome static hair! I told her if she grabbed any more balloons, she was going to fly away like the house on “Up'”. That kinda freaked her out. But it was kinda funny.

Then we headed on over to love on our great grandparents! Love Sav and Ben’s identical smiles---such goofballs!

Always a blast to visit down south! I loved getting to see all of my extended family—almost bittersweet because it makes me sad that I do not get to play with them every day!


Big things are planned for our fam this week! More “family reuniting”~ Steece style. CANNOT WAIT!!!!

just love these kiddos!

am i mistaken or right: ben seems to be suddenly taller than the rest of the crew..illusion or not?

also, do all the kiddos wear the same size? my twins sure do for now (2.5 years old) but i expect that to change at some point...:)

thanks, suz!

I'm not sure if I've ever commented before. If not then I guess I'm coming out of lurkdom :) I just wanted to say how adorable your kids are and I love the way the boys are almost always holding a truck of some kind. Have a happy reunion week

Hello! I know you don't know me, but we've got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen's blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We're holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!

Hi Suz,

I've been reading your blog for three years now- and i've been meaning to comment but kept putting it off!

I LOVE reading about/seeing your family. You're such a great woman and really inspiring- I often think of you on the days when I feel overwhelmed with my little man, and it soon gives me a wake up call.

These pics were awesome- I just wanted to say hi. From a fan in a little town in Hertfordshire, England.
