Fun Times...Long Post!

We had a great Memorial Day weekend. Some of our best friends flew in to visit and were here with us from Friday to Wednesday morning. We had such a great fun filled time while they were here. We definitly had a packed schedule.

Friday Night - Forth Worth Rodeo (This was probaly the most fun, because Davis was so excited to be a cowboy and see all of the animals)
He definitly played the part well!

We ate at Risky's BBQ for dinner. Yumm! I think that Davis enjoyed the food!

Saturday - we showed the Bass's around Frisco and took it easy before heading to the 6th Floor Museum. The 6th Floor Musuem is where President JFK was shot and killed. Saturday night we introduced the Bass's to our favorite mexican resturant, La Hacienda Ranch. Of course we couldn't call it a day until we had a good competitive game of Settlers of Catan!!!

The sixth window on the far right is where they believe that JFK was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald.

X marks the spot of where the 2nd shot hit the president and killed him.

Sunday - we went to church, ate a good sandwhich at Potbelly's and then headed to Dallas to go to the Dallas Aquarium. It was a little croweded, because of the Holiday weekend, but still a great time. They have some really unique animals like the pengiuns and manatees.

We saw the sharks feed.

Monday - We were able to go to a Rangers game thanks to the Lewis's and their parents. We had fun tailgating, a great time at the game, and great seats! Later that night we headed to Dallas to visit some of Beaty and Carrie's friends from grad. school. They actually go to our church and the husband is the youth minister at our church. So it was neat to get to know them a little bit.

Here are a few pictures from Game Day...

Tuesday - Lindsey spent the day working and Beaty, Carrie, Davis, and Bryan spent the afternoon at the pool. It was a beautiful day for them to be outside. For our last time together we went out with a bang eating dinner at Mastergrill Steak House.

All in all we had a fabulous time with the Bass's. We miss them dearly and wish they lived here in Texas! :)

Hooked - Redeeming Love

I have been wanting to read this book for awhile, but thought since it was set in the "olden days (1800's)" that I might get bored with it. Well...let me just tell you, I bought it yesterday at Barnes and Noble and I have not been able to put it down. Go get it and see for yourself.

Here is a synopsis..Sold into prostitution in childhood, Angel is a bitter woman who trusts no man. But when God tells Michael Hosea to marry her, she learns to love---until fear overwhelms her and she returns to her former life. Can she be redeemed? A skillful retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea.

So this totally cracks me up! I have been going through my pictures, organizing them and ordering a ton. (having so much fun! ha) But I came across this picture that we took during our first tornado watch/warning. The sirens went off and we headed into the closet.


Bryan's face cracks me up in this one!

Smurf Toe :(

Well today I had the dreaded ingrown toenail procedure done. I have had an ingrown toenail for at least a month. (I know bad) Well, I have kept putting off this procedure, because I had one removed before when I was younger. Pretty much, I think it traumatized me about shots and least during this procedure. When I had it done before all I could remember was that shot. It was the worst shot I had ever had in my entire life. No lie. Terrible. So, being a scardy cat of this shot I decided I would take matters in my own hands. I knew what I had to do to get rid of this ingrown mess and I attempted, several times, and couldn't take it anymore! Well anyways, today was the day. I told the doctor I was terrified of the shot and I really was dreading this experience. I started sweating really bad and apparently I turned white and the doctor was afraid I was going to pass out. Ha. (Jessica, I am sure that you can relate!) The funniest part was when the doctor was cutting out the ingrown toenail, she said, "well looks like we have been doing some bathroom precedures of our own here!" HAHA! Bryan and I cracked up. It was so funny that she could tell I had been trying to get it out! ha. Well after all was said and done, I have to admit their technique was absolutely amazing! Not going to lie, it still hurt, but was a million times better. They practically froze my toe with this spray so it took away some of the pain of the actual shot. Then 2 shots, cut the edge of the nail, dig around and make sure it's all gone, bandage it up and then I am on my way. All was good until the anesthesia started to wear off! GRRRRRR! Then I could really tell that she had messed around in there. Oh well. I am glad that this will be over with in a few days and I will be back to normal! Until then...check out the "Smurf" toe and Bryan likes to call it.

It looks real tough with the blood seeping out of the band aid! hehe! :) I thought yall would like that!
