a little more texas

A few more memories from our trip 🙂  Here are some pics from our last few days in Texas, before we headed to Mississippi for a conference.

The guy on the left is a really great friend of ours.  When Branden and I first went down to Texas to do children’s ministry, he was a high schooler who served with us – the best worker ever!  Now he rides a motorcycle, has a career and is a grown person.  It was crazy to go back and see how much everyone had grown up!  And by crazy, I mean it made me feel like an old person.

His sweet family that we LOVE!

(notice that Ethan is taking yet another awesome picture!)

Sweet babies sleeping in a hotel bed 🙂

Then we visited the Fort Worth Stock Yards!  I wish I had been a cooler mom and did some research to make our visit a little more educational, but alas, I did not.  We just wanted to see the sights 🙂

The minute we got there, this kid poses himself in a corner and says, “Mom, take a picture of me!”  Proof!  Proof that he can actually look directly at a camera and have a normal, even a sweet expression on his face!  What is going on the other 99% of the time I pull out my camera?!?  Whatever, I’ll take what I can get I guess!

I had to have Silas take a picture by this chalkboard.  This is how we feel about bacon 🙂

Branden wanted to get them rubber band guns.  Which of course meant tiny rubber bands being shot and scattered EVERY.WHERE.WE.WENT.  Ah, life with boys!

I’ve realized I do this thing.  I take pictures of my feet.  Not like a weirdo.  Like, pictures of interesting places we travel.  Like documenting where we walk.  I don’t know, maybe that’s weird :/  But John Wayne!  That’s pretty cool, right?  Suddenly I’m thinking in a John Wayne accent 🙂

Ah, and because I take my camera EVERYWHERE, here’s me posing with a giant cow portrait in the ladies room!

And of course, more school in the hotel room.  Couldn’t be more happy about being a home schooler, for reals 🙂

Alright friends, I think I might be able to wrap up our trip next time (or the time after that for sure!)  Thanks for reading/following along/coming back to this blog 🙂  See you next time!
