Fun at Fair Park

Katie and I headed out to Fair Park on Saturday morning to go to the Science Museum. We got there a little early so we could walk around the lake and see the turtles and fish too. We had a blast taking pictures and checking things out.

After hanging out with the big elephant and climbing trees, it was time to go inside the Science Museum and turn into spies!! Of course I am updating this post from work and just realized that I only have one picture of that.

So after doing some spying we went to find out more about the human body. Katie got to stand underneath a giant sneezing nose, see what it looks like on the inside when mucous runs down the back of the throat and also what it looks like from the inside when someone throws up....all such lovely things! Katie also made some huge bubbles! We had such a great time!!!

Poison Ivy

On poor Katie Kat's face and eye! Very red and itchy. That just about covers everything on this subject....not her favorite or mine!

Fun = Fourth Grade

Yesterday was Katie's first day of fourth grade. Where does the time go? After a wonderful summer filled with tons of fun it was time to go back to school. The first day of school outfit was picked out several days in advance by Katie and she looked so cute. Katie teacher this year is acutally a friend of mine from high school and she loves her. She thinks she is so funny! I think we are already off to a great start of another school year!

V is for Volleyball

Katie had her very first volleyball game last Saturday and she did so great and we won! She got 5 points in a row off of her awesome serving!!! I was so proud of her and I can't wait for the next game. Who knew that my kid would be so good at volleyball? I was horrible! It always hurt my arms and let's face it folks, I'm not exactly at the best height for the sport. Here are a few shots of the game....

St. Patrick's Day

Some friends and I went to the Irish Rover last night for St. Patrick's Day.  We had such a blast.  I couldn't believe how crowded it was already at 6:30pm.  Don't people have to work?  Anyway, today is my last day off work for Spring Break with Katie.  Today is a big day for her.  She is getting bangs!  She has been dying to cut them for a while and I have finally given in.  I will post pictures of her new hairdo later on!

Round Up!!

Katie is always keeping me on my toes. One day she is this super sweet girlie girl who wants a sewing machine and makes pretty pillows and then the next day she is this crazy girl who wants to go to Sweetwater Texas so that she can see the world's largest rattlesnake roundup! That's right folks....enjoy these creepy pictures from our trip to the Rattlesnake Roundup in Sweetwater. I can honestly say that I totally underestimated the creepiness of all the snakes and the constant sound of their rattles.



                                     My sweet baby who wanted to see this creepy event!

If you ever wondered what kind of people attend this kind of thing......behold some crowd shots!

                                                           Glad it wasn't my foot!

                   Obviously when you work with snakes for so long you grow a snake tail!


                                                                  Ready to strike!

                                   Do you really want to know how many snakes are in here?
