An American Girl

My mom, Hannah and I went on our first trip to the American Girl store. We were in Dallas for a couple of a days for a meeting and decided to go the store and bistro. We surprised Hannah with the trip there and she was thrilled. If you have never been, it is very cute and fun but it is also a little pricey. I conveniently forgot my wallet on our trip so my mom saved the day and used her credit card. Can you imagine if I would have taken Hannah there, picked out some things and then had to say "just kidding those dolls weren't for sale." Luckily, I didn't have to do that because my mom saved the day as always!

More bluebonnets

It's official...I really am a bluebonnets fanatic. They look unusually pretty and full to me this year. The kids are so sick of having to take pictures in them that I have now added the dog to the pictures----she doesn't complain as much. :)

The picture below is at a place down the street from our house. I really love the picture because it reminds me to love where I am. Since we moved from San Antonio I have struggled at times not to think..."In San Antonio, we had this (fill in the blank) and that was better." The fill in the blank could range from the River walk, to Sea World, to our church, etc. I have liked being here but have sometimes felt like life was just a little bit better where we were. When I took this picture, I was with the dog and the kids and I thought "This is exactly where I want to be and I am glad this is home."
