Still Spring Break

This has got to be the best Spring Break I've had in a long time. Oh,'s the only Spring Break I've had since college! As you know, we're at mom's house in Texas. We got here Saturday around lunch time. We went to the Rainforest Cafe and the River walk. We had Jim's family over for dinner and hung out Saturday night. Sunday, we went to Six Flags with mom and my brother. I'll have to post pics from that later because I haven't downloaded them yet. Then yesterday, we went to the Japanese Tea Garden and the San Antonio Zoo. I wanted to get some good pics of the boys so I hope you enjoy!

I don't know why but I always have Brady next to a tree! Can you believe how big they have gotten?
Next is Kaden stopping to smell the flowers. I think he was actually blowing at them but it made for a good picture. Next, we have Kaden putting back the flower he picked! It's the thought that counts right?
My handsome Brady!

Can you see the evil in his eyes? I wonder what he's thinking and I'll be it has something to do with "how can I get on the other side of the chain fence!"

This is the waterfall at the garden. We were on the other side where we had to climb a million stairs...not really a million but with an almost two year old it seemed like it! Next, we were off to the zoo. We had guest passes thanks to a friend of my brother's and she took us up close as personal with the Rhinos. It was really cool. We got to go back where they feed them and take some pictures!

Thanks, Sarah! We appreciate the passes and the tour! That had to be the highlight of the day.

There are many more picutres but I will save them for when I get back! We fly out tomorrow around 11. We're going to have breakfast with PJ and mom and then it's on to the plane!

Spring Break!!!!!!

Ok, so I've tried to upload some pictures twice but it keeps giving me an error. So I'll just tell you about Spring Break so far. Let's see. It all started Friday when we got out of school at 11:00. April and I decided to leave early and spend the night in Little Rock because we were afraid that if we waited until Saturday morning we wouldn't make our flight because of the ice and snow. We left at about 3:30 and did not get to Little Rock until 11pm! Now, if you've never driven from Memphis to Little Rock then let me tell you, it only takes two and a half hours normally! But in the snow and ice and all the wrecks, it takes 7! We were so tired when we got there!!!!!!
Needless to say, we were greatful that we went Friday night! We made our flight and got to Texas on time! Kaden was so funny on the plane! It was his first time to fly and he was so excited! He kept jumping and squealing and clapping. That was the first flight. On the second plane, he colored the whole time so it went by a little bit faster! He got a certificate that said it was his first flight. The boys also got a coloring book, a post card they could color, colored pencils, and wings to wear on their shirts! They were so least they thought so!
So, we get to Texas and go downtown to eat at the Rainforest Cafe! Kaden loved the Red Eyed Tree Frog! He didn't like when the monkeys would start making noise!
Then we had Jim's family over for dinner and the kids played with their cousins.
Yesterday we went to Festa Texas. Brady was big enough to ride some of the big rides! Of course that was awesome for him!!!! Kaden loved riding rides and acutally fell asleep in the stroller which he never does! We got picutres with all the characters and Kaden had to hug them all! It was so funny! I'll try to post some pictures later today if the computer will let me!
I'm not sure what we're doing today! I'll keep you posted on our adventure!
