We are so wild and crazy that we are spending our 5 year anniversary with my parents. Well, our anniversary is Monday the 9th and we have big plans in Austin in a few weeks and we will celebrate then.
BUT this weekend my parents and some great friends are all going to be there for lots of food and adult bevs. and a toast to wedded bliss. Of course the kids will have lots of room to run free! It is going to be a glorious weekend.
Now let's get on with some random pictures that were taken this week in Cocoland, shall we?
Today in 1836 the Alamo fell. This is something all of you should know. Especially, if you are a Texan.
If you don't care, that is fine.
Just a little advice if your aren't interested, NEVER ever ask a question about the Alamo to my dad. If you do, you better have a few hours for a lengthy lesson in Texas history. Maps will be pulled out, replicas of the "Come and Take it" flag with be displayed, and you will know everything thing you never wanted to know about the battle between Santa Anna and Sam Houston. He is a proud Texan.
Let's take a moment and bow our heads.
Ok, moving on....
Oh, the Braminator. Are the rest of you having trouble taking pictures of your three (almost four) year old as we are? Dang, it is a chore at our house. Either he has a really weird fake smile that makes him look VERY constipated OR he is in some super hero pose OR he is doing the above. Hopefully he outgrows it.
Please notice the floor below precious angel's high chair. This is what happens when you are not quick on your feet during meal time. The lil' punkin' will throw every. piece. of. food on the floor when she is done and you don't take it away fast enough. And I'm sorry for you if the lid to the sippy cup is not on tight enough. Seriously, you should see the blinds on each side of her chair. Disgusting.
I am a firm believer in diaper covers. You will never see Tess in a dress without matching bloomers. If dresses do not come with matching bloomers then you will see these, in an assortment of colors or monogrammed accordingly, on her tiny hiney.
They have been married for over 60 years and he was so frightened something would happen to her, the relief on his face and in his voice is clear and very touching. She is such a classy lady.
I have seen her many times in Austin (I worked downstairs from W's 2000 campaign) and she just radiates happy class. Her quick recovery is in my prayers.
That is it for now. Time to pack up the troops for a fun filled family fun weekend!
