Spring Breakers!

We spent a few days in Houston for part of our spring break. It was great to see lots of family and do lots of fun things! We drove into MIMI and PawPaw's house and a few hours later got to see Dave's cousin Scott, wife Hannah and baby Maggie! We met Maggie when she was born but now she is 4 months old. It was great to see the sweet Reaves Family! The next day we spent some time with our Hall cousins! Here are the 4 girls at dinner.
After every bite of dessert, Graham would say "MMMM!" Nice shirt mom! Where is the bib?
Emery enjoyed her dessert too:)!
Got to have cousin bath time.


The next day MIMI and the four of us went down to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. We didn't do the rodeo part, but loved the stockshow part! It was kind of last minute that we decided to go and I didn't pack any rodeo wearin' gear. A tulle skirt and a dinosaur shirt had to do! ha!
AL in the petting zoo.
Graham's face lets you know what he thought of the Llama.


We got to see lots of animals, but the babies were our favorite.
As Anna would say, "We saw bunnies, piggies, horsies, chickies, cowsies and more!"

The one day old piglets!
G getting as close as he can.




Then Anna Lou saw the pony rides. And MIMI insisted!

Here she comes! She was so serious! We were cracking up at her very serious face concentrating on her little pony, name Linda Lou. ha!
We were jumping up and down smiling trying to get a smile of her, but she was too busy riding her pony! It was pretty funny!
Then it was time for some fair food!

Someone insisted I take her pic on this chair. ok?
More treats!
Then it was time for the Bumble Bee ride. This is the man telling Dave that G could not be in his lap. Uh oh!
G was thrilled! He actually stopped crying when the ride started moving.
Can't even see his little redhead, but Dave and AL were having fun!

And then the ride stopped and G was ready to get off!!!!
Of course Daddy needed to play one game.
And he won AL this beautiful stuffed heart!
Thank you MIMI for a wonderful day at the Rodeo!!!!
At MIMI's, we spent lots of time outside on their beautiful deck. I took this pic with my phone, but you can see AL keeping her distance playing gently in the fountain and G pretty much in the fountain, soaking wet!

MIMI also babysit and treated us to a wonderful dinner date to Lupe Tortilla, one of our favorite Houston places!
The next day we drove home and that evening went to watch Papa coach a baseball game. I think these two were interferring with the coaches meeting before the game, but Papa didn't mind!



The next morning we went to our friend, Hudson's 4th birthday at the fire station. His mama, Amanda did such a great job! (yes, AL has on the same shirt two days in a row, but I washed it. ha!)


Checking out the firetruck.



I left the party early to head to a baby shower and Dave stayed with the kids. I didn't get any pictures of the cute birthday boy!
It was a fun, busy week! Especially fun spending lots of time with Daddy!!!

Okay, maybe it's just me, but Graham looks like he's grown so much since football season! What a cutie! Oh, and Anna is a cutie, too. :)
