Big Wolfpack Victory

Larry and cheerleader Lauren celebrate another NC State touchdown at the local sports bar. Larry was a little concerned that we wouldn't be able to find the game but luckily it was covered by ESPN pay per view. I found a place that would have it on and told Alice and Larry I had good news and bad news. The good news was that a sports bar at the mall would be showing the game. The bad news was that it was the same mall where Alice had her accident!

We were the first ones in the door to see the 11:00 kickoff. And everyone made it home safely!

Lauren was wiped out after her long day. Going on a fancy trip downtown can really take it out of you.

It also appears that sleeping 15 hours during the day took a lot out of White Kitty.

Lauren Goes to a Play

Lauren's kindergarten class went to the Majestic Theater in Dallas to see a play. To celebrate the occasion Lauren dressed up for the occasion as any young lady would do. She had wanted to wear her Stars and Stripes dress but a cold snap had come through so she had to settle for her brown dress.

The class went to see a Flat Stanley play. They learned that Stanley was flattened by his falling bulletin board. And there was some joke about Stanley's brother and a lightsaber. That's about all we could understand about the experience!

Bike Ride

On Sunday we went for a nice long bike ride.  Suzanne had recently been to Highland Village on Lake Lewisville for the first time checking out homes with Chimene and Dave, so we decided to check the area out up close.  Miss Carole watched the babies for us.

During part of our trip we left the common suburb neighborhoods and headed out into some less developed towns.  One of the roads we headed down had a nice long driveway and plenty of share, and had these two folks just sitting out enjoying the sunshine.
Much of the ride was driving down some nice bike and walking paths built along a high-power line access way.  On the way back we saw a roadrunner right off the path.  We pointed it out to Lauren, but I don't think she was all that impressed to see a road runner because she hasn't really ever seen the Roadrunner & Wile E. Coyote.  Kids these days!  We watched those cartoons so much as kids that our elementary school voted the Roadrunner as our mascot!  And we were in Vermont!

The first week we came to Texas we saw a couple roadrunners during our first drive out in the country.  Now 8 years later we see another one!

Passed this elementary school.   After Wikipedia'ing it we learned that there are many schools across the US named for Christa McAuliffe.  She was not from this area.
After the ride was done we drove over to Life's a Beach for lunch.  Our first time there, it has a sandy beach out back and lots of seating inside and out.  Not too much to do in the sand other than get sandy.  But the food and drinks were good!
