a little more summer fun

We took the kids to Thanksgiving point a few weeks ago for some pictures. In August they do $2 tuesdays, for several of their activities, our plan was to go as a family to the dinosaur museum during Geoff's lunch break, and I would take the kids to the gardens after he left. We got to the museum only to find a line wrapping around the entire building, so we decided not to do that. We grabbed some lunch at the deli and took Emma through the atrium first. After lunch Geoff left for work and I took the kids to the Gardens. They are so beautiful, they have like 50 acres of gardens, with different themes. Emma had a blast running around and looking at the flowers. They also have a kids area with lots of fun things for them to do, unfortunately we did not have very much time to spend there, I wish we would have gone there first, but we'll remember it for next time.
Emma and Geoff in the atrium, if you can't tell, she is Daddy's little girl.

This is at the children's part of the Garden's she got soaked, I had to just take her skirt off.

This is Emma and her friend Addy, they love to play together

I decided since we were here we needed to have a little photo shoot of our own, since I haven't been able to get the kids in for photo's recently.

There are a lot of photo's here, but I really narrowed it down, I ended up taking 200 pictures.

These 2 love to play together, Emma takes such good care of James, and James really looks up to Emma. They get into a lot of trouble together, but I love that they play so well.

Emma is attempting to roll down the hill, I think it's kind of cute.

Scera Shell Summer

This is at Lone Star

Geoff and I have had a great time this summer at the Scera Shell. Our office became sponsors of the Shell and in return we have had tickets to everything. Not only do we get to go to the concerts but we get to go to a pre-show dinner which includes meeting the performers. We have been to Jim Brickman (an amazing pianist), Colin Raye, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (Geoff's favorite concert), and Lonestar. Here are a few pictures of the summer. We've really enjoyed doing this, and look forward to the fall season as well.

Geoff and I before the Concert

Here are our pictures with Jim Brickman and Colin Raye, I have not gotten the pictures from the other concerts yet, but when I do I will get them posted.

I really enjoyed the Colin Raye concert, he is a great performer, and he treats his fans so great. Before we took the picture he played with James for a minute.

We are going to the Take 6 concert on Monday, they are an acapella group and have won 10 grammy's. It should be a good concert. They end the summer season, and then Scera will start an indoor seaon for the fall, I am looking forward to that.
