Yes Im still alive!!!

I just wanted to let you guys know that yes Im still alive....I thank you for the comments and the emails while I was away and even last week when I returned and no one had heard from me yet (other then you Tom as we text just about every day so you knew I was still alive) Our trip to Texas was awesome. It was so good to see my brother and sister and nephew. We were on the go every day which is fun and exciting at the time but man does that catch up to you eventually!!!!! We went to the aquarium in Dallas on friday that was lots of fun and very exciting for the kiddos.

Devin and Jacob...dont think they are liking the idea of more pictures!!

On Saturday we went to this HUGE flea market...we spent 5 hours there and still didnt see everything!!! But we had lots of fun and we bought some cool things. Didnt take any pictures there but trust me it was fun and we are already talking about going again when we go back to Texas. Then on Sunday we went to the Nascar race. There are no words to express how much fun this was. Now I know you either like Nascar or you dont. And if you do then going to a race is something you just HAVE to experience!!! My favorite driver is TONY STEWART...with his teammate RYAN NEWMAN coming in a close second. WE stood for two hours straight just for the chance for me to see these two guys up close and personal. As soon as I knew they were going to make an appearance there was no way I was going to be stuck in the back of the crowd!!! Was it worth it??? HECK YEAH!!!! I walked away with a HUGE smile on my face...ok I actually felt like I could no longer walk beause when I say we stood for two hours waiting I am serious it was two hours just standing in place waiting for them to show up and then one hour standing once they did it kind of felt like I no longer had feet!!!!

yes it was so worth the wait!!!!!

Now my man Tony ended the race being 4th but it was so much fun and we are already looking into getting tickets for the November race in Texas...I think Im addicted!!!!

I will post more pictures of our get away later, Ive been so busy since I got home with not just house work but my oldest son turned 21 and then I had the Easter Dinner at our house so Ive been one busy woman!!!! So I wll post again later!

Ok I take back what I said about Tony looking fat. The picture on the cell phone didn't do him justice. I also notice you neglected to mention who came in 1st and 2nd that day. Going back in November? Sounds fun. You going to mail me my ticket or will you just pick me up on the way?

I can not get over how big Jacob got! I can definitely see Val in his face. Thanks for sharing!! I am still waiting to hear all about your trip. We sorta got sidetracked Thursday by your helping me with chickens. Hugz kiddo....

Glad you're back!

I love the jelly fish picture. I have a "thing" for jelly fish.

Sounds like you are/were a busy lady!
Why is it that everything always seems to happen the same time? Geesh...You'd think it were a part of life or something! ;)
