The End of Kindergarten

Can you believe this??? I honestly have no words.

Random Pictures

 
 Abigail and I babysat this week and I loved this sweet picture.  She is soooo good with littles!
 Her teacher recommended these box books for her emerging reading and she's so proud of them.

 
 She dressed herself to go to target.  Yes, she did.
 

 

 The kids had May Madness/Field Day last week.  It's a FUN day wear the kids wear swim suits and there are giant water slides, pools, slip n slides, etc.  They had a blast, but apparently it's changed a lot since we were in school.

The Zoo

 
The Dallas zoo has a Dinosaur Exhibit right now. 

 

 
We're members, so we can go an hour before general opening on Saturdays when there are special exhibits.

 
And we could ride the T-Rex Express for free!  Abigail rode it twice.  She was so full of wonder.
 There were life sized Animatronic Dinosaurs throughout the exhibit.  The moved and made noise.
 


 

 

 
Touching the dinosaur eggs

 
 Dino Dig
 


 
After the exhibit we saw the rest of the zoo
 Aaron was with us, too.  He was very busy reading the map and guiding our course.

Sunday

On Sunday morning we took one more walk on campus
 

 

 


 


 

 

 
The Century Tree where we got engaged
The kids had a blast playing here

 

 


 

 

On the way home we stopped in West for a Kolache and a Texas cookie
 
 We had brunch at Black-eyed pea
 

 

We also found out that the tornado that came through Grapevine and Southlake that morning missed our house.  And it was crazy, because just three houses away the streets were a mess and so many trees and fences are gone.
 

 Abigail earned a marble prize and got to go to Toys R Us after nap

 
This was a wonderful Mother's Day.  I told Jory it was best ever.  :)

College Station, Day Three

 
 Saturday was a fantastic day!
We started with breakfast at Blue Baker where Abigail bought me this cookie
Then we headed to the Bush Presidential Library and Museum.  It was wonderful!  I have 100 pictures.  We couldn't believe how much the kids loved it.  We were there two hours and we had to drag the kids out of there.  They would have stayed all day!

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 


 

 


 
 I have twenty pictures of Abigail on various computers in this library!
 


 


  



 

 


 


 
This replica of the White House is a child's size house.  The kids can go inside and watch a movie.

  


 

 

 We ate lunch at C&Js Barbeque and it was really good

 
We went to two really fun stores and then headed to an Aggie Baseball game!

 

 

 
There was a really fun playground that was covered and you could see the game from it.  Abigail played on it some while Aaron watched the game.

 
 Saturday night, a babysitter we know kept the kids while I got a Mother's Day Dinner at one of my all time favorite restaurants, Christopher's! 
 

 

 
 This was such a good day!
 

 

 

College Station, Day Two

On Friday Morning we headed to campus

 
We ate lunch on campus at Rev's Grille


 
 

 
We were taking a guided walking tour and had some time before it started, so we went to the campus bookstore

 

 
 Abigail got a purple Future Aggie water bottle that she is so very proud of

The walking tour was really interesting.  This is a picture of the Corps dorms.  Aaron is very interested in the Corps.
 We ate lunch at Chicken Oil Company

 

 
We went to another store and then in the afternoon went to the Corps Museum on campus.  Aaron was so into the gun room.
 



 After the museum we went to downtown Bryan and walked and shopped a little

Jory surprised me with a Soda Fountain/Antique Store.  It was so fun and I love a true ice cream soda!
 We went back to College Station and had dinner at CafĂ© Eccel
