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!
