Boot Scootin' Boogie!

Oplin, Texas has a population of about 75 people, but in these parts Oplin is a fun place to be on a Friday night! For those who don't know about Oplin...let me explain...
It is the home of the Grand Ole Oplin, which is an old, abandoned school gym that has been turned into a dance hall. On most Friday nights, you can find the dance hall full of older generations of gents and ladies who love to two step, waltz, and dosey doe! We decided to join the Walters and some other families from church for a 'back to school' dance at Oplin. This meant lots of boots, country music and dancing- it doesn't get much better!


Levi on left & Will.
Excited about dancing the night away!

Trying to get a good photo with my boys. This one was good of Will...
I'm lovin' his cheesy grin! tooo much...

Better one of Levi.

Handsome Fellas! I'm one lucky girl!
The boys were trying to get their thumbs in their pockets like their dad.

oh me, oh my. i love this kid.

All four of the kids outside The Grand Ole Oplin.
Levi, Ava, Will & Pierson.
(They'll be releasing their first CD this fall...)
I could eat Pierson up with a spoon. He is beyond cute.


Levi and Pierson teaching each other how to two-step : )

Oh Kara! I needed to see these sweet and funny pictures tonight! They made me laugh with tears in my eyes! I love how they are doing something in every picture...sometimes looking...sometimes not. My favorite is the boys trying to put their thumbs in their pockets. They are absolutely precious!
