My BABY is Walking!

We have a ton to blog on!

First Lily is walking. She is 10 1/2 months old and she is getting around pretty well. She definently has the drunken sailor swagger down. SO cute!

Dave went out of town for a week to Houston-Here is him telling his story-



We celebrated the games in China by how else? We ate Panda Express had sparkling Cider and....

Watched the opening of the games on my parents huge HD screen. I love the Olympics! Olive hands:)

Kid in a laundry basket.

So I left for Houston on Saturday and was there till last Friday. We were supposed to visit some off shore rigs but TROPICAL STORM EDUARD has something to say about that. Becuase apparently its not safe to fly a helicopter into a tropical storm we visited some land rigs, which needless to say is boring for me after mudlogging for 4 months.

The food was good this is the Louisiana man who cooked our food. He had the accent to go with the spices. To paint a picture of the food; the potatoe salad was 3 to 1 favoring egg over salad. There were hot links and some kind of spice steak. Finally the meal was finished off with chocalate cake.

Me before our final dinner at The Houston Space Center. When I got to the Space center what is the first thing I see? R2-Freaking-D2. I knew this stuff was real, NASA says so.

This R2 unit was attached to a jedi starfighter. Sadly there was no Hyper ring to reach faster than light speeds.This is one of the old space shuttles......before we upgraded to star fighters.

These were the toliets in the bathrooms at the NASA center.

Lastly the final dinner at the Space Center. In the middle are the chocolate booster rockets filled with creme with a strawberry next to it. The main meal was a piece of chicken with a piece of cake on a bed of wild rice with aspargus between. I traded my chick for more steak.
