The busy days...will be gone before we know it

Yesterday was a busy one, that's for sure.  As soon as I woke the kids up it was Go time.....R had a 4th grade field trip to the Sea Center and G had Rodeo Round Up at his pre school.  Luckily, the time worked out to where I could be at both, I just had to leave an hour early from the field trip. 
The field trip turned out to be really fun, I even learned some interesting tidbits about redfish.  The Sea Center is a great (free) place to visit to learn about marine wildlife, they also house a hatchery where it is believed that 1 in 5 red fish in the Gulf come from.  We had little stations that we traveled to where the kiddos learned about all kinds of stuff from fishing safety and lures to tying knots.  Then, they got to try their hand at fishing (catch and release, of course).  R had said for days that she didn't really care about fishing, especially since she has a cast on her arm....but she loved it!  My family is full of great fisherman and I told her she must have been channeling them yesterday.  It seemed that every where she moved on the pier the fish swam on over to her bait.  Check out the Sea Center for yourself and if you are local be sure to stop by, it is a great place to take toddlers, they are mesmerized by the huge aquariums.  All three of my kids like it there...even my too-cool teen.

Rodeo Round Up at G's school is when they all get decked out in their country attire and show us how smart they are with their Texas knowledge and how darn cute they are with their attempts at line dancing and stick horse racing.  It's always a blast. And super cute.

At the end of the day I was unnecessarily tired and so hot I could have emptied a trough of Diet Dr. Pepper.  It was so stinkin' hot by yesterday afternoon, I was wishing I was back in the snow.

Happy Weekend to you!

  1. Sounds like it was an awesome day. I love going to Marine Centers. There is a research and aquarium in San Pedro in Los Angeles. The best thing is that it's free, although donations are very much welcome.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
