(OK, not fair, Lauren is over her half way mark of being pregnant and look how good she looks!)
That evening was Chad's work party and Jake and Lauren were kind enough to babysit for us while we attended it. It was a ton of fun. Lonestar and STYX were both there providing the entertainment for the night. We were able to get right up front to listen to them and only had a few people in front of us. Last year Chicago provided the entertainment, I was pregnant with Tristan, but I managed to squeeze my belly up front!
The Alamo Dome where the party was held. I could only get about 1/3 of it in the picture.
Chad and I
Sunday, Chad and I were pretty tuckered out, so we let Jake and Lauren do their thing. Later that day when they came back, Jake had bought a bullwhip. He was practicing outside with it, and Devan decided he wanted to give it a try. He did pretty dang good and actually cracked it a few times!
Monday we visited Chad's work and then headed out to a town called New Braunfels. That was kind of a dud, so we went a little further to Gruene. Gruene was better, but it was so cold out, we couldn't stand to be out. We ended up going back home.
On the way home this place caught our eye...
OK, we didn't go in, it was kind of scary! But we did notice some chickens with some unusually large talons frolicking around outside. Jake was certain they were fighting roosters. hmmmm.... the more I look at this, the more I envision a sequel to Napolean Dynomite, only Texas style.
Monday night we had fun playing games and drinking hot chocolate. It was great having some family down. We'd love to have more company, so here's your invite right now! Just find your way down here and we'll take care of the rest ;-)
