Swim season

We entered the pool this 2010, on March 27th.  It was definately warm enough outside, but the water was still a little cold.  Dennis and I just put our feet in the water and Sawyer was not as crazy as the other two so he tested it out and then stayed on the side.

Ryan and Julia, however, loved it and stayed in the water for a long time.  The mostly floated on the top, so even though they thought it was warm enough, their actions prooved it was still a little cold. 

After swimming the kids put on a show, displaying their various dance moves.  Too FUNNY!!!

March Madness

For our March event, we went to the NCAA South Regional finals here is Houston.  It was fun, we were really far away, but the excitement of being there was a lot of fun.  WE left the kids with a sitter and I guess Sawyer had a belly ache, so after numerous calls from the sitter, we left the 2nd game at half time to head home.  The joys of parenthood!!  Although, we did decide that with the tickets we had, it is better to be at home watching it on TV.  Next time we stay home, or we good really good seats!!

I'll I want for Easter is my two front teeth

The first day of vacation, Julia lost her right top front tooth.  It was a very dramatic event.  We were at a Jack in the box, having dinner and Dennis decided that she needed it out.  The decision was made because she would not eat her burger, since her tooth was hanging out and it was hurting her.  So Dennis took her to the car and after a lot of pulling and crying, she came it bleeding a lot, but minus a tooth.  She was very happy, a little nervous that the tooth fairy would not find her, but learned that night that the tooth fairy is very generous on vacation.  The last day of our vacation, her top left front tooth was ready to be pulled.  Julia was a lot more brave this time, and there was a lot less blood.  It was kindof neat that she lost one on the first day of vacation and one on the last day of vacation.

Goodbye Good 'Ole Texas

If it was any other person's blog, besides us, this might come as a surprise.  But, since it us, the Updikes, I am sure no one is suprised that we are moving again!!!  When we moved to Texas, we knew that it was just a pit stop to Tulsa, Ok, but we thought it was a 3-4 year, minimum, pitstop.  Well things with Dennis's job changed and instead of 3-4 years, they want him in Tulsa now.  So.... need-less to say we are "on the road again".  It is bittersweet for me, I never in a million years would have thought I would love TX this much.  It is a great place to live, and did I mention that I live in my dream home!!  Well it actually belongs to someone else now, since we sold it the first day it was on the market!!  We are moving to the Tulsa, Ok area the middle of June, which makes, I think, 5 summers in a row that we have moved.  Since Dennis and I have been married for 10 years and with this move it will make the grand total moves to.........13
That is afwul.
Well this should be the last move for a very long time!!!
