My mom and my step-dad came to visit a couple of weekends ago, and we had a great time!
They arrived Saturday afternoon, and we headed out to Mesquite to watch a rodeo on Saturday evening. That’s what you’re supposed to do when you come to Texas, right?
Nana, Morgan and Me
Sean and Papa
There was a petting zoo before the rodeo started, and we thought Jamie would love it . . . um, not really . . .
He wouldn’t even pet the baby chick if Daddy held it.
On Sunday, after church, we headed to McKinney for a Civil War re-enactment at Chestnut Square Historical Village. We learned about how the women dressed during that period of history.
Samantha, Allen and Morgan did some studying and goofing off in the one-room schoolhouse.
We got to see some pretty grotesque methods of battlefield surgeries.
Then we all found a seat on the steps of one of the houses to wait for the battle.
Those brown eyes are so sweet, aren’t they? You’d never believe that face could look like this one second . . .
. . . and this the next.
When the battle was over, Allen tried to convince us he was old enough to join up.
On Monday, we visited and did a little shopping together, and Tuesday, I got to do some sewing for my mom and Ralph before we headed out to dinner at Angelina’s.
(That’s the new purse that I had just finished for my mom on her shoulder!)
Jamie thought he’d try some salsa. “Too picy . . . too picy!”
Mom and Ralph packed up and headed up to visit with Ralph’s children in Oklahoma on Wednesday. Jamie helped load the car.
It was a really nice visit. It was so good to spend time with each other!
