Fun with more BIO friends...

One of my friends I met from my internet mommy board was passing through our town and they stopped by for a playdate (on their way to Disneyland). Now Claire keeps asking for Olivia and Noah to come over.

Final destination: Dallas/Fort Worth

One day, I drove the girls, their cousin and their grandparents out to the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center southwest of Fort Worth. It was one of the most fun days of our trip. Many of the wild animals come right up to the car, some even tried to stick their heads in the window. We saw lots of deer, zebras, ostriches, giraffes, rhinoceros, just to name a few. Midway through the drive there is a petting zoo which consisted of different types of goats. There was also a cafe there where we ate lunch. I recommending bringing a lunch to eat at the picnic tables if you want something healthy.

One day we met friends at the flight museum at Love Field. The girls weren't so interested in the Apollo capsule, but there was a kid friendly play area they enjoyed. There was also a part of a Southwest Airplane they could climb up and sit in seats.

The girls are meeting my friend's horse, Paschale. They enjoyed being out in the country for the day and learning about horses.
More pictures of BIO friends. I met up with DJ, Kristie and their kids up north of Dallas where we went swimming and had lunch. The kids all had a blast!

The girls keeping an eye on Preston, he was a very active boy, I think he might become a football player.

Interesting weather pictures.

Destination: Houston

The 2nd week of our summer trip was spent in Houston. We visited with lots of friends and went to the Children's Museum and NASA. Shopping, movies, playing, eating Tex-Mex...
I lived in this house from the age of 2 to 10.
Rainy day fun!
More water play...

At NASA...

May the Force Be With You...

After our week in Amarillo, we stopped in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and ended up at the Star Wars exhibit at the Fort Worth museum. It was so crowded and hot but it was fun.

I finally finished this pink baby blanket for my sister-in-law while we were on our trip to Texas this summer. I think it turned out nicely.
