I have grown to love Texas - the independent spirit, more reasonable politics, southern food and most of its people. And yet I still have a large part of me up north. So it was GREAT to have my parents here over my mom's spring break. This week we truly got to experience the best of both worlds - sunshine, food, laughter and family.
Rodney even took Monday, Tuesday and most of Wednesday off!
We headed to Houston's Zoo on Tuesday.
Even though we had the stroller with us, she walked most of the day with Rodney. She only rode in the stroller while she had a short snack...
We needed the picnic bench break more than she did!
But the long days took their toll. She only sucks her thumb when she's utterly exhausted. Grandpa enjoyed reading to her everyday. Every morning, she would wake Grandpa up and ask him to read her a "devo book"! Fortunately for all of us, the wake up call didn't come until around 8:00am:)
