Our trip to Texas already seems like such a long time ago already!
And the fact that I keep starting and stopping this particular post means that it actually WAS a long time ago!
It had been three years since we last visited and the kids and I were excited for our 2 week adventure! Donald had a lot of work, and a possible federal jury duty assignment.
He didn't end up being called in, but was unable to make travel plans "just in case".
We started our morning very early with a shuttle ride to Seattle.
We visited a Faberge exhibit that they were having.
I thought Faberge was all about eggs...but I guess it's about pickles too...
So many cool things to watch and see...
Here's me and a giant sloth today.
After Crosby, we were heading to Conroe to see Meema and Papa.
On our way we stopped and visited with my dear friend Melissa...who I'd not seen in so long.
It was a wonderful, emotional, special visit and we made promises to do it more often.
Time and love and life are too precious.
Next stop was Conroe and we finally got a chance to meet Cora Hodge "in real life"!
Cora is my cousin Ben and his wife Bridget's daughter.
An absolute doll!!
Sweet and beautiful and smart!
Just like our own children, she was born to two Aggie parents.
So...need I say more about her brilliance?
After only meeting once years ago, we have become friends through our blogs.
And because we are both queens of the blog world, I know our infinite number of readers were probably waiting to see the two of us together.
So sorry to disappoint, but we won't make that mistake again!
As we said goodbye to Meema and Papa, I took a group picture.
Then went back and found this picture from our last visit.
Very cliche, but WOW, time flies!
Home of the 12th Man!
