Oh me – we really added to the memories the last 2 weeks. My niece Sarah and her Joe were home for the first time in 6 months and we packed as much in 2 weeks as we could. Now we need a vacation to rest from the staycation! But oh… did we enjoy every minute of it. Here are a few things we did. Let me warn you -it includes a lot of eating!!
We had to eat at our favorite steak house in Texas!! And even got to see Tom Perini himself. We loved the atmosphere that night – live band and all…..
mesquite grilled Steak….
drew decided to dance with one of his favorite partners. They were just a Bluuuuuuuuurrrrrrrr!!
The Stuteville kids alllll together again….
The cousins – they are a growing – the newest one in 2 weeks- Callie !
One night Sarah,Jaime and I went to Art class and had a blast painting together-We have a wonderful teacher in Roxanne-Sarah was the teachers pet – she did great!
Drew loved hanging with his cousin Joe…. and Ruby Dee. I think maybe its because he flies B1s and Drew just happens to love him some air planes!! He even said his name. We decided we all wanted to be called Joe- easy to say for a 22 month old!
One of our last evenings we loaded up the cars and headed out to Tuscola- to eat one of the BEST burgers & home made fries around!! “Lucy’s” is a treat in this area and you can top it off with homemade Ice Cream – could you ask for more???
We also went to Albany one day to visit Josh’s Pharmacy and do a little shopping in one of the best kept secrets in West Texas! Of course we ate at the Bee Hive and had to have a soda fountain milk shake!!
We had 2 amazing weeks catching up with each others lives and now I have to find a way to keep her mother busy so she doesn’t miss her tooo much. We are already figuring out how to get ourselves to Washington DC in the fall. Watch out DC- here comes Sarah and Joe and a little bit of Texas!!!
It doesn’t matter how old they get ,they still love to have a funny picture together!
Till we are together again….. Nothing but blue sky…
