Wait, people actually do fun things on Spring Break?…Yah, we are not cool enough for that yet. Maybe when the kids start Kinder, we will take advantage of a week off from school (I know MOM will definitely need that break! ha).
Joe took off Monday and we decided to make it a long, St. Paddy’s Day weekend in Austin, with none other than our EXTREMELY IRISH GRAMMY and GRAMPY!
Sav and Ethan about to hit the pool. I guess this is what life would look like with twins? (looks so weird! not used to seeing only 2, ha) I always wonder if all 4 kiddos look similar, like…that you can tell that they are siblings- and this picture definitely gave me my answer. They look so much alike! Crazy.
Didn’t know my camera had a “fish-angle” setting…lets play around with it, eh?
My little fishies still know how to swim after a 6 month hiatus! Pheww, b/c this Mama did not want to pay for swim lessons x 4 again!
Everyone has been talking about how much the kids are growing! It has only been a month or two, and G & G could tell such a difference. The boys are getting some seriously long legs. Makes me kinda sad.
Full of life, this one. Every family needs an “Andrew”. Love him.
Oh Sav, and her awesome hair styles.
Grampy decided to get in the mix…. GOOD LUCK, Gramps! Love these pics. Sav is swimming toward the guys like a shark- Drew’s face is priceless.
Having so much fun!
Ethan’s face kills me in this one… head back, laughing with all of his might.
Hilarious. They can wear you out quickly, huh, Grampy? God love you.
And now begins the water wars… the dudes in the pool vs….
Savi in the hot tub…
The boys and their “not-so-quiet” sneak attack… Joe is under there somewhere…
Sav opted for higher ground and attacked her enemy with great force and precision…
Can anyone guess who “won”? Was there ever any doubt? I’d take little miss Rambo on my team any day.
My view the entire weekend… pretty soon, this will be overlooking sand and gorgeous ocean water!!!! (We will be going back to our honeymoon destination~Puerto Vallarta~ for our 10 yr anniversary trip! And with some of our besties! Can’t wait!)
We headed to the Oasis (on Lake Travis) later that afternoon
The kids found a super cool little spaceship to play in…
Ethan, Sav, and Drew~ exploring the land
After lunch, we enjoyed some live music in the courtyard. The kiddos made themselves quite comfortable as they enjoyed their little treats.
Then we got in the burb to drive back to G & G’s…
(ahhh, a beautiful sight!)
We had dinner that evening at The Hills.
Grammy, Savi, and Suzy
Pretty sure this lil gal has her Grammy wrapped around her finger!
Some handsome Steece fellas
Gotta love days of swimming all day long!
My little Mama’s boy~ Ethan
Trying to get a photo with Dad, and Ethan photo bombs it…
…and yet again~ the little green gremlin strikes again
there we go!
Sav and Andrew with their sun-kissed faces
G & G looking super cute and coordinated
Me and my Benny Boo
The next day, we swam all day and hit up The League for dinner. How cute (and big) are these kiddos?! They are proudly sporting their Irish heritage from adorable shirts that Grammy sent them.
Andrew, Ben, Savannah, and Ethan
I had even painted Savi’s nails to celebrate the day…
We won’t talk about how 10 minutes after these pics, they all came off in the pool! Ha. Owell…
The chitlins with their Grands… (S, E, D, B)
The whole group!
A cute little gal gave Sav her glittery leprechaun hat! So sweet. Love this pic.
Cheech and Chong (E & A)
Dad and his mandatory green beer
We had such a great time in Austin (as always)! Thanks so much for the fun weekend, G & G. We love you! Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
