Weekend Fun

Aunt Krista, Kendall, & Ashton came for a visit today...we hung out around the house...Kendall & Zeke braved a swim in the freezing pool...we made a trip out to Gardenridge to look at yard lighting....all in all, it was a fun day.

On the way to Garden Ridge I realized that my gas tank was running really low...that is unusual because I hate having it below half a tank (tonight it was below a fifth of a tank when we started.) Krista spotted a $2.89 per gallon price as we were leaving Deer Park. After we drove into Clear Lake we couldn't find anything under $3.09. Determined to get the better price, we waited to get gas until we got back to Deer Park, joking the entire way about what we would have to do if we ran out of gas. Ashton & Kendall were groaning in the backseat about a time they ran out of gas in San Antonio...Krista was driving Mimi's car and the low fuel light never came on. After they ran out of gas the kids ran 1 mile one way, back & forth to a gas station (twice=4 miles of running) to get enough gas to restart the engine of Mimi's car. Tonight when I filled up at the station, the meter stopped at 31.3 gallons. I have a 32 gallon tank. Kendall & Ashton were not amused. I got a lot of dirty looks from them.

While I was rocking Kaelyn tonight before bed, she looked up at me and said, "ere's Daddy?"
J: He's in the den
K: Ere's Bubba?
J: He's in the den too..reading stories with Daddy.
K: K den
(meaning she wanted to go into the den too)
J: Ok, we'll go in the den but it is night-night time. We'll give Daddy a kiss and then it is time for bed.
(We walked down the hall into the living area)
K: Daddy! (very enthusiastically with arms reaching out to him)

This little girl is such a stinker...she knew that he wouldn't be able to resist that welcoming announcement so of course she got to snuggle with her Daddy and brother. They were so cute, I had to take their picture.
