A Trip down Memory Lane!

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see what memories people leave about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

Well, last week we were lucky enough to have Grandma Johnson come and visit us on her way to her Mary Kay convention in Dallas. We didn't tell Ashlee that she was coming so she was SURPRISED when she got here. We had a blast hanging out with Grandma. We went shopping, sight seeing, shopping, swimming, and did I mention shopping?

We also went to the NASA Space Center here in Houston. We all had a good time and it was really cool. I was totally AMAZED at the size of the space shuttles. They always look so tiny on television.

Here we are standing in front of one of the rocket boosters. This is just one of 5 on this section. I am telling you they are huge!
Don't worry Nate, we will hold up the moon. You just stand there and look pretty!

At the Space Center they had this bungie jumping trampline and the line to do it was pretty long. Ashlee was determined that she wanted to do it. So, Ashlee and I waited in line for an hour (the longest hour of her life! And mine too!) but she finally got a turn. They put the harness on her and it was so big that they had to keep cinching it tighter. Finally she got her four minutes to jump she had a ball!! When she was done she wanted to do it again, even if she had to wait in line for another hour. Needless to say I was not going to wait for another hour for her to jump again!
Here we are waiting in line. We are finally at the front!
Cinch it tighter!

Who wants some cookies!

Ashlee has been bugging me for weeks to make some cookies so the other night we finally got around to doing it. Ashlee and I had so much fun. I thought these pictures turned out so cute.
Mix, mix, mix
Notice the chocolate all over Ashlee's face
Who would have guessed that my daughter was such a good baker!

The Hula Hoop Contest

At the festival on the 4th there was a hula hoop contest. We had a great time watching people compete. Then I got the crazy idea that I should be in the contest. I used to be a pretty good hula hooper back in the day. Well, I got up there and needless to say, I can no longer hula hoop. I did horrible, but I had a good time. Well after some of the other wives had tried too (they weren't very good either) Ashlee decided that she wanted a turn so we got her up there. Well the hula hoop was so big that she couldn't actually do it, so she just held it up around her as the contest began. Well since her hula hoop never touched the ground, she WON!!! She was so EXCITED. They gave her a little prize and everything!

Happy Independence Day!!

Well we sure had a great time on the 4th here in Texas. After the guys all got home from work we had a bbq out at the pool. Then we went to an area just north of where we live called the Woodlands. They had a big festival going on with live entertainment and then a great fireworks show. Here are a few pictures of us enjoying AMERICA'S BIRTHDAY!

Houston Texas

Well we are now in the lovely city of Houston. As you probably know we were supposed to spend the summer in Las Vegas but after being there for two weeks we ended up getting transferred to Houston. We are back in the humidity again.

There are a lot of families out here working with us so we all get together a lot. It is so fun having a good group of friends. There are 5 girls out here Ashlee's age and they all love playing together. All the little girls love going from apartment to apartment playing with each other's toys.

We all got tickets to go to an Astros vs. Redsox game last week. Our seats were really high, but we all had a great time. Here are a couple pictures from the game.
