Road Trip Update

Hi neighbors!

Here is an update on some of the fun we have had on this Road trip. We actually ended up with half a day at a hotel and my husband and children had a chance to enjoy the pool. They really had a lot of fun! I managed to catch all three of them jumping in! Of course there was the usual horseplay too.

As you can see by the posts we were able to visit some more Half Price Bookstores. My 17 year old son searches them out and tries to maneuver our driving so we can hit more of them! His sister actually told him there is more to this trip than book stores!

We passed several cotton fields that had already been harvested.

We ate at California Pizza yesterday. They are a really great place to eat, although a little expensive. everyone orders their own pizza. My husband chose the loaded pizza with everything. Three of the children had the Hawaiian, my oldest son got the five cheese and tomato. I was the only one to go with pepperoni and extra cheese. We also add a Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. It is enough for all of us to share.

In the above pictures we were able to visit the Alamo. That was pretty exciting! Being in downtown San Antonio it looks a little out of place. They also do not allow pictures inside, which was sort of disappointing. We all still enjoyed being there!

Today we are going to the Texas Ranger Museum. I will do a post on them Monday. I will take plenty of pictures!

You can also see a couple of pictures of my daughter with one of our dwarf hamsters! Yes, we were actually insane enough to bring two of them on the trip with us! They do make good entertainment while traveling and in the hotel room in their little ball.

I will update more next week! hope you are having as nice a weekend as I am!

LOVE the Alamo pictures. I have not vacationed much but was able to visit my dad when he was staying in Corpus Christi one year and he and my little brother and I visited San Antonio and the Alamo. It is a great memory, especially now that Dad is gone. He was a great History buff and I have a teen son who follows that love. Would love to take the kids there someday!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
