Swimming Fun

I took the kids to my parents' house this weekend. They're staying with them this week and will be doing some back to school shopping and lots of other fun things. I had to take these pictures of the kids in the pool.

Now, could my Mom have bought goggles that looked any dorkier than this? rofl I laughed at them so hard - which of course puts me in the running for Mother of the Year.

I also met a friend of mine (and her family) for lunch at Landry's on the Boardwalk in Kemah. It was only me meeting her because nobody else would go with me. The kids wanted to be in the pool and Dax had to work (or so he claimed ;0) )It was great to get to see her again and spend time with her family. It was a nice time, but then I had to hit the road for the long drive back home.

I decided to take the even longer way home so that I could stop and shop in some of the small towns on my way home. I take full advantage of these times in order to shop at the kind of places I like to go into that the rest of my family hates. lol Well, by going this way I went about 2 hours out of my way and I'll be damned if not one of the shops I wanted to stop at was open. The only stops I made were at two gas stations. Once to get something to drink and visit the lady's room and once to actually get gas. I was pissed to say the least. I'm still trying to convince myself to look on the bright side and think of all the money I didn't spend. Whatever!! I wanted to shop. *pout* I guess I'll leave early when it's time to pick the kids up and see if that works out any better for me. rofl!
