No pictures to show, but wanted to share our weekend. My grandpa lives near Killeen and we went to his house with most of the family to see him for his birthday this weekend. The ride down was fun for the kids and they got to swim in his pool and play with lots of relatives they never realized existed. Needless to say, they had a blast. To them, it was a "vacation". Everyone was very happy, but tired at the end of the day, so we headed to a hotel in Temple to spend the night. After grabbing some Whataburgers, the 4 oldest went swimming at the hotel and 2 of us relaxed in the room. When we got ready to leave Sunday morning, Emily lost the glasses for her new porcelain doll so we scoured the parking lot for about 20 minutes to find them. Then we went to church and Kimberly sang OldMacDonald, Row Your Boat, and Wheels on the Bus pretty loudly all through communion. After that we had lunch and headed home. About 30 miles down the road, Lizzie had to go to the potty so we stopped. That is when Emily realized she didn't have her blanket. Clay searched all through the suburban and I called the hotel. Guess what! We drove back to the hotel to get it! Finally we were on the road home. We stopped at Hillsboro Outlet center and Bass Pro Shops for some fun and finally got home a little after 6pm. Talk about tired! But we plan to go again next year!
