Lets go to Luckenbach Texas!

This Friday, we decided to make a spur of the Moment trip to the Deer Lease.  We loaded up and headed that way only to find out that when we got there we had no water.  I know a lot of Deer Camps don't have Water, but I'm not a fan, so we spent the night, played a little the next day and headed home.

Here's my little Kinley.  This little girl is such a Tomboy.  She loves to wear hats. 
She chose this look herself.  I have a feeling she will be making trips to the Deer Lease with all the guys when she's older.

We got up Saturday Morning and rode around the property for a little while.
Colton of course had to bring his BB Gun just in case he had to shoot something.

Daddy and Kinley
He's such a good Daddy!!!

Most of the time Kinley tries to make a run for it and see how far she
can get before somebody comes after her

I let her get as far as I feel is safe and then I send one of the Kids after her.

When we left the Deer Lease, we decided to take a different route home. 
For once, we were not in a big hurry so we decided to stop by Luckenbach, TX
We had driven through before, but never stopped and checked things out. 
Here the family is standing in front of the Post office which is also a Gift Shop.

As soon as we walked in the door to the gift shop, the clerk said, "Well I see there's some new Sheriff's in town.  She put badges on all three of the Kids  and then had Colton and Bailey raise their right hand and repeat after her in order to get the Candy that she waived in front of them.

 When you walk to the back of the gift shop, there is a Bar.
If this isn't a TEXAS Bar, I don't know what is.

Another view of the Bar

Even the ATM is Rustic

One of the strangest things about this trip is that Colton and Bailey got along.
They actually acted like Friends.  They even chose to sit next to each in the truck.
They laughed until their Stomachs hurt.

Kinley passed out on the way home


 These are my favorite kind of days.  No plans, just playin' it by ear.  It doesn't happen very often.

Daddy Daughter Dance

I knew when Bailey came home with the information for the Daddy Daughter dance that there would be a slim chance that they would go.  I knew this wouldn't be something that Greg would really be interested in.  Sure enough, when Greg got home and I was telling him about it, he didn't seem excited AT ALL.  I could tell his mind was already trying to figure out a good way of getting out it.  The next  day, he had a plan.  He told Bailey if she would forget about the dance, that he would get them Rodeo Tickets.  She wasn't completely convinced that this was a better deal, but she decided to go along with it.  I kept the info. on the fridge just in case because in this family plans change every minute.  Friday, the day of the dance, the kids went off to School excited about the fact that they were going to the Rodeo that night. When the kids got home, PLANS CHANGED.  Bailey walked in and started boo hooing about how the whole 2nd Grade was going to be at the Dance.  She said, ALL HER FRIENDS would be there.  Seriously, this is too much Drama for a 7 year old.  Once the Tears started to fall, Daddy had a change of Heart.  He said o.k....We'll go to the Dance.  This is typical in this family.  I should have known something like this was going to happen.  We didn't have a whole lot of time to prepare.  Bailey and I jumped in the car and headed to town.  Within one hour, we found a dress at Bealls, went to Sally's Beauty Supply and bought a curly pony tail holder (You know the ones with the hair that looks like your own hair) went to Payless and bought some shoes and then to Target for a Cute flower to put in her hair.   I think that is the fastest I've ever pulled an outfit together in my life. We got home and had the perfect amount of time to get dressed, get hair done and be out the door. 

This was not staged.  I just happen to to be clicking away when Bailey reached up to kiss her Daddy.  It makes my Heart Happy that my kids have a Dad that loves them so much. 

  I'm glad this all worked out and Greg said they had a good time.  Now on to trying to create Costumes for their School play next week.  I really wish Home Economics would have been a required course in High School.  Everyone should know how to sew.  I do not, so I will be relying on my friend Vanessa to pull some costumes together out of the fabric I give her.  It's one thing after another with these kids, but I love every minute of it.

My Karate Kids

Well, the kids got their Uniforms on Thursday so now they are REALLY excited about Karate.  Colton did a complete turn around once he put that uniform on.  It was like it gave him magic powers.  He went from not wanting to do Karate to excited to learn some new moves.  

I love that they want to sit together on the line before class.
Colton especially, he follows Bailey around just like when they were Babies.
As long as he has her there, he's o.k.  (He would never admit that)

Learning Some Moves.

I was so happy to see him enjoying it.

It was hard for Bailey to practice with this little girl.
She said she was so cute, that she just wanted to pick her up and hug her.
Last time I checked, there is no hugging in Karate.

I'm looking forward to this Thursday.  I love watching my kiddos learn new things.
