Family Vacation!

WE SURVIVED!  Lord willingly, we have completed our
Family Vacation and are home safely to rest (and wash LOTS of clothes - LOL!)  It was WONDERFUL to have all my chicks under one roof and know that they are safe - if you're a parent; you understand!  
We were all together and it felt GREAT!  On Monday, met up with KV & little boys, picked up Andy Hayes at the DAL airport and headed to the Great Wolf Lodge.  OMG!  "Save your $$ and GO!"  It is SO WORTH it!  I can't say enough good things about it!  It is all family orientated;
from my 20 yr old down to my 10 yr old - WE ALL had a blast.  GO!  We stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights.  Zoomed Andy back to the airport to fly to Alabama on Thursday.  He's a "working man" now - okay its just Wal-Mart... but he working!  Here's just a few pics from our stay at GWL.  Again, GO with your family - you will be so glad that you did.  We paid about $300 a night; but that includes the water park and it's HUGE; indoor & outdoor with super cool slides - everywhere!... everything is clean and so nice.  There are special deals - we were able to get a "Stay 2 nights and get a 3rd night FREE" deal!  Check out their website here!  We all had such a great time!  

(YES!  AH needs a haircut, but at least the hair is BLONDE... remember the "black" hair - argh! Andy got "carded" several times at GWL; everyone 18 and younger needed to be with an "adult" - Hee hee!  He's got a "baby face" - and the HAIR! Makes him look so much younger...! LOL!)

KV and I had the honor of taking our mothers to the musical play of TEXAS on Friday.  GREAT SHOW!  Very well done!  The Palo Duro Canyon is really pretty.  Haven't been there or to the play since my senior year in HS - OMG!  Yes, that's over 25 years ago!  Eek!   
Before the show, we indulged in an AWESOME steak dinner (when you can cut a steak with a plastic knife like butter -yummy!).  

Also were delighted to join a childhood friend and her family at the play - Crystal Wright Miller, Bill, Sara Beth and Sam.  Love you Crystal - she deserves her own post, so more on Crystal later!

So, we are finally home.  What is it about sleeping in your own bed? - it's so good!  Now it's time for completing 4-H Record Books and making 180 Hero Capes for VBS!  Life is good!  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a MARVELOUS weekend!
