Roller girl!

One day after school there was a class event at the skating rink. We learned there were lessons at 9am every Saturday so Lauren tried it out.

Bike Ride!

When Miss Alana came over to spend the night Mike decided it would be a good idea to take her back by bike. So >100 lbs of girls got into the cart behind Mike and off they went. It was a cool day for August, only 92F, but still got pretty hot in the back because the top was down to keep the sun out. A half-way stop at Sonic was planned to get some lunch and some ice cream to cool down!
Girls point out their favorites

Shakes are portable!

The girls slept the last 30 min or so. Their house is at the top of a hill, the girls didn't even notice when I got off and walked them up the summit. And the cart nearly fell over backward when I got off the seat!

Brought the iPhone to keep Lauren company on the way back!

Minnesota picture

Miss Lauren rode with her cousins thousands of miles up I35 to Minnesota. Daddy flew up there to get her, and in thanks Miss Lauren drew this picture. Just about the whole family is represented!

Lauren was a trooper the next day, getting up for the 6am flight.

Ella walks!

Miss Ella started walking last night, so for the official scoreboard we'll go with July 15th. (Miss Julia walked on May 22nd). Of course we weren't here when she did it, her first walks were for the babysitter!

Lauren takes Dad to the Zoo

For a sweet Father's Day gift Lauren took Dad to the Dallas Zoo "Lights Out" overnight program. We got there at 7pm on Saturday night after getting some dinner at the McZoo restaurant out front. Then we went into the zoo and first got to pet some wild animals that a handler brought out for us. Then we walked around the zoo.

After closing down the zoo we went back to the education trailers where we slept in sleeping bags with the other campers. We had a spot right under the A/C units so we nearly froze!

The next morning they brought breakfast in for us and then we headed out back into the Zoo. We watched a 4-D movie based on the Planet Earth series and walked around a little bit more.

Thanks Lauren!
