Texas In Pictures

I'm still trying to organize photos ... here are a few highlights:

Yes, the boys ALL got to DRIVE an excavator, crane, tool carrier, skidsteer, BIG truck (I'm sure I'm leaving something out.) You should have seen the folks in this neighborhood all stick their heads out their windows to see our kids driving the heavy machinery! (Jeff's friend is part owner in a heavy construction firm.)

The pool the boys did NOT want to leave (can you blame them?)

Tara and me and our kiddos in the Texas sunshine. (What a special gift it was to meet Tara on our trip to Texas!)

This is "Oliver" from GirlyGirlBowtique Kelly's little girl visiting Tara's girls (notice the other little guy, Nolan, trying to squeeze in the photo.)

Better photo of my ladybug found treasure from Nolan




And one last thing ...
There are only a few more hours until the LWB Born In My Heart Art Auction closes for 2010, so don't miss out! Be a part of something so much bigger.
Check it out.
Last I saw there were some very nice items that could use some more bids. Yes, we all want a "deal" ... but when it's for such a good cause, you hate to get too good of a deal. I am so looking forward to the end totals and some beautiful stories from the proceeds!

WOW!!! What a GREAT pool...I can definitely see why it was hard to tear yourselves away from that! Ha ha...I chuckle picturing the neighbors watching you Iowans/Minnesotans braving the cold to swim! :)

I am going to show the boys these photos of your boys running the giant digger. I know they will think it's so cool!

Glad you guys had a wonderful week. Great photos!

How fun! I LOVE the pool! Ours is not so marvelous...maybe someday.

Any when you coming to Florida to visit me? I have LOTS of sunshine to share.
