Texas Trip Part 2: The Zoo and then some...

After the Reunion, we daughters took my momma out to eat for her birthday before Shantel and my parents headed back East. Then, I spent another week and a half at Michelle's house in Garland hangin' out and havin' loads of fun. We hung out around the house a lot, but did venture out a few times. We went shopping at Grapevine Mills. We went to the Dallas Zoo (upon arrival, we discovered that kids were 1/2 off that day - bonus!). It was really hot, but there were lots of places to cool off, and we had lots of drinks and even ate some ice cream. We also went to Chuck E Cheese for lunch one day. And, before I left Michelle's house, we met with some old friends: Vanessa and Cristina (wish I had a picture). It is so much fun to reminisce and catch up with such great friends. I was so blessed to have such a fun and great group of friends to grow up with. :)

Hangin with the sisters and momma. I love my momma and my sistas!

We had such a great time at the Countrymans' house and were very sad to go, but our trip in Texas was far from over....
