Houston Rodeo

Bryan bought tickets for Jo.nas Brothers, thinking my mom might bring some of my nephews and/or nieces.
Ended up, Mom came with Trevor (nephew), Emma (niece) and my aunt Sharon. We had a packed weekend!

They flew in Friday morning. Landon and I did some shopping (hobby lobby and Joann’s - my two new favorite stores!) before heading to the airport. Picked up everyone and met Bryan at Pei Wei for lunch. Then we went over to Charming Charlie’s - where Sharon, Mom and Emma found lots of great things. After that it was back to the house for some relaxing before Bryan got home.

Friday night we went out to Kemah, ate at Joe's and then walked through the stores. Mom bought all the kids some candy and then we had beignets.

Started out Saturday morning with a trip to the chiro - he worked on all of us - Sharon said her thumbs felt great! Then headed over to Kohls, where Mom and Sharon found great deals! Lunch was pizza and a huge ball of bread (about the size of a turkey!) at New York Pizzeria.  We then went to the movies. Sharon, Bryan, Landon and I saw "Alice in the Wonderland" in 3D (Landon told us he could see it, cause he was "a lot brave.") Mom, Trevor and Emma went to see Valentine's Day.  Alice in Wonderland was pretty good.  Glad we picked 3D.  Landon said his favorite part was when they chop off the Mad Hatter's head. 

We drove to Sugarland for dinner at my cousin's Katie's house. Finally got to meet baby Cora - she's beautiful! And Katie and Mitchell's house is just grand. Talked and Laughed until late that night.

Sunday morning, we went to church in Bellaire. Then stopped by Target to change clothes to head over to the Rodeo. Another delicious meal including: Fried Gator, corn dogs, onion blossom, barbeque, roasted corn and chicken fried bacon (called fat back in the south.) We then walked through all the booths. Man - exhausting.
Time for the rodeo and concert - so MANY girls! Demi Lavo.to sang a few songs - not very well. Not sure if her sound checks weren't good or if she just didn't perform well. Jo.nas Brothers (or as Landon calls them "the jonas boys") were great. Landon fell asleep in the first song and slept through the whole concert.

Funny Landon quotes from this weekend:
On Friday morning, he walked into our bedroom, stopped and said, "Who cleaned all this?"
I told him that I did.  He asks, "Did you get tired?"
We then walked out to the car and he says, "mom you cleaned the car very nice"

When we got home from the airport on Friday, we all walked into the living room and Landon's shouts, "oh no, mom, we forgot to pick up" (the house looked pretty grand to me)  But he pointed to a batman mask that was laying on the ottoman!

The announcer said it was time for the "Calf Scramble." 
Landon wanted to know, "How they going to scrabble the cows?"

  1. How fun you can take him to concerts and movies! I can't wait for Blair to be 'grown up' enough to do those things :).
