Fort Worth

Taylor had meetings in Fort Worth on Monday and Tuesday of this week so the kids and I went along with him. We stayed with my parents and had a good time seeing Grammy and Bumpaw. On Monday morning the kids and I visited DeeDee at her library and then drove to Fort Worth to visit Mimi. Taylor had a break at lunch so we picked him up and met some dear friends at the mall for lunch. The Sheltons were good friends of ours in seminary. Ross is now a pastor and had come in for the conference. We hadn't seen them since Sophie was a baby so it was good to catch up. They have a beautiful smart 2 year old named Audrey and one on the way. After lunch Ross and Taylor went back and Lauren and I spent the afternoon at the play area and the Disney Store with the kids. Just like old times, only with 3 little ones added on. So fun! I met Taylor at the conference that night for a dinner and then we had a little date night at Starbucks.

Mom and Lindsey took off on Tuesday and we went to the Fort Worth zoo. We had a great day. The weather was perfect and the crowds were low. The kids really enjoyed it, too. When we left the zoo we stopped by the hospital to visit my great aunt and uncle Max and G.T. Max broke her hip recently and I think the kids cheered her up. We are back home today and getting caught up on school and housework. We sure did enjoy our break, though.

I LOVE the pictures! I had a great time, can't wait to see you again. The birds WERE the best part of a good day.

Such a fun day! Loved every minute of it with the kids-with the exception of the gorillas. Hope Sophie's teacher was impressed with her "I" animals!

It sounds and looks like y'all had a good time. I love the pics. How fun that the kids got to interact with the birds. I was totally cracking up at the pics of the bird hiding from John Curtis.

I also wanted to say Thanks so much for stopping by today. Your support really meant a lot to me!
