Saturday Morning Entertainment

On Saturday we decided to take a little bike ride at a new location(besides our neighborhood). We went to Mercer Park, unloaded many bikes and got everything ready. Hopped on the bikes and stared straight into a NO BIKES sign! What did we do you ask? Bike anyway! The trails were great and although we saw a few people on the trails, they were accompanied by dogs, which was also a big NO! So we had a great time, played at the park and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. But next trip will have to be somewhere else.

Good thing for the truck! When Mallory graduates to a bike, it will be a tight squeeze! We have to get out and enjoy all Houston has to offer when it is below 90!

Oil Ranch

I was excited to take Mallory on her first field trip in pre-school! We went to the Oil Ranch and I decided it would be fun to take Mia as well. Well, that ended up being the best choice because Mia LOVED the farm. She wanted to do everything. We started by milking cows.
Mallory said- I am not touching that pink thing!
Mia said- I want to do it!
And she did. That girl has no fear.
Then we rode horses, fed cows, rode a train, played in a park, fed goats and had a picnic. They both loved but I think Mia really enjoyed it the most. She keeps saying,"Remember when....

The train was a big hit. It reminded me of Zilker Park in Austin.

The class line up

Mallory lovin the horse. She wanted to ride more than once.

Mia on the tinest pony I have ever seen! So cute and she had a fit when it was time to get off!

Mallory was not liking the cow idea- they smell but Mia thought milking the cow was cool.

All in all, a great day and fun memories. I would say it is worth the drive and lots of fun for a family outting. And now I know Mia will be on Cole's farm for sure.

Another Project Complete!

I am never more fullfilled than crossing off a project off my list! The dresser took some time b/c it invovled painting and some rebuilding. My carpenter AKA Dana found wood rot on the top of the dresser so he had to build a new top.(remember he stated in was a piece of crap?) So now it is in the room and I think it looks great. Also, my mom came for a few days and decided to change things up in the living room and add some new pillows! Thanks mom! I culd not be happier with the results.

I loved the lines and details of this dresser

The bottom is so nice
