Sit back, relax & welcome to the Harrison world
Welcome to the daily happenings of the Harrison Family. It's crazy here, but we have a lot of fun. Mamma is clearly a little out numbered by the male species in the house, but it sure keeps things interesting. In our lives, you'll find lots of bugs, blocks, trucks, loud banging, clanging, running, hurdling off couches and beds, endless amounts of energy, no sleep, laughter from the belly, boo-boos, trips to the dr, walks to the park, did i mention no sleep? We hope you enjoy the ride as much as we do.
The boys get a little silly when we throw the green slide into the pool. As long as they're smiling, it's cool.
Today we went to the Safety Fair at the local police substation. In this first picture Brady was running over to tell me that he just saw the police helicopter take off into the sky! We were able to see and get into a Care flight, police helicopter, Swat car, ambulance, fire truck, and mobile police units. The boys thought it was "super cool" ! We were also able to meet some bomb sniffing dogs and rescue dogs. Wonder if we could enter toni in francis in the program... JUST KIDDING.
If you look close at Breck's hand you can see the little snake he caught. This spring has been excellent for snake finding and Breck didn't want to let this one go. He kept it overnight in his snake house and released the slithery little thing in the morning.
If you were to look in our backyard on any given afternoon, you might think i run a nudist colony. The boys feel quite divine in the buff and today were in fine form running around the yard popping bubbles.
You can't tell, but we were riding the zoo monorail here. The boys LOVED it since it was a train. Brady continues to talk about how we got to sit in car #8! Great way to see the animals!
The Boys had a REALLY good time at the zoo! So much to see, so we'll go back a lot.. maybe this very weekend!
After spending some time outside this morning, the boys headed in to Breck's room to do a little Reading. Please notice Breck's book is completely upside down, but he didn't care. This was such a rare, calm and quiet moment!
Look at my little men!!!! The hose can keep them occupied for extremely long periods of time... Love those hose splitters!!!!
Brady and Breck, keepin' it real in the front yard. A lot of times we'll wait for their Dad to come home from work out front... and this was just one of those times.
Love all the boys!! I grew up in a house where the ladies clearly out numbered the men... and now the ladies are being swallowed by the men!
So, here's Brady gettin' his hair 'did'. He's entranced with whatever show they play over and over every time we're in there. He's come a long way... for a year and a half, he wouldn't let scissors come near his head, now he can't wait to get a hair cut and tells me when his hair is long!
Breck is a super stud getting his hair cut. Look at that tiny little neck... how can you not love him!
Yea Brady! So proud of the little man.... when he started swimming lessons in January, he had never even put his head under water and now he's swimming under water!
It's awesome that Breck is out painting shirtless in the backyard when 9 days earlier it was snowing.
We couldn't help but take advantage of the beautiful sunny day we had! I think as a family we were very 'snowed' out and ready to get back to a normal Tx spring! It was soooo nice to finally get the boys out to run around, take in that warm air and brilliant sun. I was so thankful for this day!
OK, with this snow, I have officially had it. Brian woke me up and told me to look out the window.... i didn't even want to. The thought of yet more snow about made me sick. This is late March and normally we're out basking in the warm rays of the sun! I guess looking back , i can be thankful for all the cold we had because it sure made for GORGEOUS rose bushes this spring! Anyway, I am happy to say that this is the last snow day we had for the winter... THANK GOODNESS!

i think this was March 8th. After all the cold days we've had this year... i was SOOOOOO ready to see sun and this beautiful rainbow. It was actually a double rainbow and so pretty! The boys spied it while we were eating dinner.

I forgot to slip this picture in earlier... this was Jan. 8, 2010 when our temps in Dallas dipped into the teens and the power went out all over the city including our neighborhood. I don't believe I've ever been so cold in my life... our house was like an ice box... seemed colder than outside and the hardwoods everywhere didn't help. We were lucky, our power came back on after a day, but several streets around us were out for a week or more. YIKES! I think i prefer the heat.
Out having lunch with friends. We've all known each other for a very long time. Allison (on the right) and I took gymnastics together in elementary school, grew up on the same street and cheered together in jr. high and high school. Susan (on the left) and I have been friends through jr. high & high school, we commiserated together during our first year of college at U. of Alabama which we both left for TX schools, and we are still great friends enjoying each others friendships and watching our kids grow up together. Love my friends!

This first picture was taken at the Dallas World Aquarium. Brady had fun feeding the bird.
Below is Breck being a "worker". That's the apron my mom made. Cute huh!

Despite the snow, we still headed to swimming lessons at Emler Swim School! Actually it was really nice since it was so warm in there! Here is Brady showing off his backfloat! He really enjoys his lessons!!
These pics were all taken out front of our house. Not sure if we'll ever see this amount of snow again, so I'm glad the boys were able to get out and enjoy it even if it did bring on rounds and rounds of sinus infections and colds! Brady and Breck took my kitchen spatulas to dig in the snow. Not sure why their sand shovels weren't good enough, but hey, it made them happy!
