Cassie is all smart and stuff

Last weekend we drove down to Houston to celebrate my oldest sister, Michelle’s, oldest daughter’s graduation from high school.  We did this three years ago when her son, Mitch, graduated, but for some reason having TWO kids in college seems more insane to me!

Cassie is a brilliantly bright young lady who will be studying mathematics at TCU (horned frogs!) as part of the honors program. She wants to be an actuary. (Told you she was smart. What 17 year old knows they want to be an actuary!?).  What’s even cooler about Cassie is she definitely received a gene near and dear to my heart: the “I love music and celebrities and will obsess about and stalk them until death!” gene.  I have loved hearing her and her friends adventures to various concerts and getting to meet bands, including the Jonas Brothers. She did learn from the best. Jess and I had the pleasure of escorting her to a JoBro sound check about two years ago and taught her the “act like you’re supposed to be there” trick.  So, yes, I’m VERY proud of Cassie’s smarty pants brain, but I’m more proud of her musical celebrity obsession 🙂

The Mitchell Sisters!

We had the best time ever at Big’s house with her husband, Rusty, and her whole family.  Walt got his first experience with swimming. Overall, it went really well!

Look how happy this Munka Man is with his daddy!
I love this little face!
Day 2, Walt refused to nap because there was too much going on. Look at how miserable he is! (Look at how shocked I am!)
Perhaps he just needed sunglasses and to lose his swim trunks

Probably my favorite thing from the weekend was Walt getting to hang with all his cousins:

Abby (Michelle’s youngest – the Baby Whisperer), Jaelyn and Jameson (Kathy’s kiddos)

And finally, we learned that Michelle’s dog, Louie (who’s practically still a baby himself), was very concerned about Walt. He was so curious about the baby and wanted to lick him if we let him.  The best part was if Walt cried, Louie went NUTS. He whimpered and wouldn’t leave his side:

So sweet!

I sure love my family and love getting quality time like this weekend!
