4th of July Weekend

We were down in Round Rock for the 4th of July weekend. It's was great being back in central Texas. We came in on Wednesday night and meet Nana, Papa, Grandma, Grandpa C, Uncle JJ and Aunt Candy for dinner at my favorite restaurant in Pflugerville, Springhill Catfish. My Uncle Jim also came to the restaurant to visit and see Hayden. The next day we went and saw Mamma and Pappa, Blaine's grandparents. Hayden and I haven't seen them since January and they were sure missing their grandchild. We loved visiting with them! Then we went to Uncle JJ and Aunt Candy's house to go swimming at their community pool. We had a blast and I got to lay out, which I don't get to enjoy up here in Levelland unless you want to be covered in red dirt because of the wind. On the 4th we went to Round Rock's parade and fireworks and had a big 4th of July dinner. Then Saturday morning Blaine went and got the best donuts in the world, Round Rock Donuts. The two things that I wanted when we came back was Springhill Catfish and Round Rock Donuts. You can't get anything like that up in West Texas. Sunday came around and it was time for us to come home. What a short weekend. Wish we could have stayed longer. We miss our family and seeing them everyday. I put a little slide show together because there was to many great pictures just to post. Enjoy!

This past weekend at the Science Spectrum Museum they hosted CritterFest '08. They had tigers, crocodiles, camels, barn animals, big snakes, monkeys, miniature horses, pony rides, and cow milking demonstrations. Hayden loved feeding the camel and all the barn animals. When we were watching the cow milking demonstration, Hayden thought that the cow was going to the potty. We had to tell him that is was milk coming out of her not pee pee. What he enjoyed the most was Rosaire's Big Cat Encounters. They had five Bengal Tigers including a white tiger. They also had a Crocodile Encounter show that we weren't able to make it to because the show time was to late in the afternoon, we can't miss nap time. Hayden also painted a bug magnet and colored a tiger mask. We had a great time!

Have a Happy 4th of July! We will be in Round Rock visiting with family and friends.
