FUN DAY!

We went to Dallas today to see Laura and Ryan!

Mother had never seen their house, so.....
 (I just love that picture of Grandmother with Granddaughter.)

I think the Maxwells' house is really classy... and artsy... and homey... and wonderfully lovely.

Here Laura is showing her grandmother some of the art in the living room...
There is a Bible passage written all around the edge of that picture.

Here's Sam in their study...
 I said, "Smile for the camera, Sam." So he did.

Here are Ryan and Laura in their breakfast nook...


Here is the breakfast nook...
You can see in the bottom right where Akon and Olive eat.

Here are Akon and Olive looking through that very window...

Olive is Will and Bailey's dog.  Akon (and L&R) are taking care of her while W&B are in Scotland.

Here's a good picture of her sweetness...
She's very friendly, and has NOT tried to eat any chickens (that is, until after she was made to know that was a VERY bad idea).

So now are some pictures of the back porch and yard....
Those chickens are so soft. (I hadn't pet (petted) a chicken before, so I had had no idea.)

There are six chickens and they are prolific in their creations....


Back inside I was impressed with how the Maxwells used an old chair of Ryan's...
It's a nightstand!!

Well, I took many more pictures, but may show them to you later.
I need time to tell you what happened after we showed Grandmother their house.
We did my favorite thing: we went out to eat!!

At.....



It was DELISH.  

This picture looks like what Ryan ordered...


This next picture looks a little like what I ordered...
I got those pictures when I did an image search for LA CALLE DOCE.

Sam and I both said that we WERE GOING TO GO BACK SOMEDAY!!!
It was so delicious.

It was a wonderful time today.
I just hope the Baylor Bears give us a wonderful game against Texas, which starts in 20 minutes!!!

SIC 'EM, BEARS!!!

Here's a picture for you....
Ryan got this recently.
He's a Bear now, you know... as he is going to the Baylor School of Nursing's graduate school.

SIC 'EM, BEARS!!!

Olive looks like she's growing up and gaining some weight! Hope she's not eating any eggs... ha!

I miss all those people!

Laura, did you dye your hair red? I couldn't tell if it was dyed or maybe just the lighting made it look red, or maybe it's just naturally turning red... either way, it looks good!

Nancy said...

I do, too, Carisa. Thanks for the comment.

Bailey, Laura's hair must have just looked red in the pictures. I don't think she dyed it.
Oh, I bet you DO miss all those people. FORTUNATELY some of us can come see you SOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!! (Sorry, though, we won't be bringing Olive.) :(

It was great seeing you guys! Your pictures are really good, Nancy. And Olive has had a few eggs lately... Sometimes we put them in their food as a treat : ) Maybe we just need to exercise her a bit more. She seems happy.
