The girls had fun riding Grandma Cuca's "horse."
Celebrated B's birthday.
He requested donuts in place of cake.
B was completely surprised by Uncle Bill's gift--
a trumpet! (He'll be playing in middle school next year.)
Spent Independence Day in San Saba.
Had a house full of friends and family.
We took turns ooohing and aaaahing
over Marshall's pics from Europe.
Sent the kids to the front porch to eat their lunch.
(Later found several plates in the flower beds.)
Celebrated Grandma's birthday.
The kids were happy to have a little more time
with Saylor and Roxy.
After a failed visit to the drive-thru car wash,
I paid the kids to wash the van.
And then they ran through Grandma's sprinklers.
Perfect for a hot TX day.
Then we went down to the Mill Pond
to watch the fireworks.
Small town celebrations are the best!
The next morning, we hit the road.
Grandma Cuca joined us.
Our first fun stop:
Science Spectrum in Lubbock.
C loved the children's museum section.
We had fun with the bubbles.
We got some BIG ones.
We attempted to play virtual volleyball.
It was much harder than real volleyball.
My favorite part: the Hall of Holograms.
The kids gave Science Spectrum 5 out of 6 thumbs up.
Next stop: ARIZONA!
That flag is such a welcome sight.
Drove the kids by
The Cozy Cone Wigwam Hotel.
And had to stop and take pics with the Jackrabbit.
