She was around 12 pounds when we got her at 15 months and today, she is still a peanut at about 24 pounds and 36 inches tall. She loves books and princesses, loves her brothers and sister, mom and dad too.
For dinner, we celebrated with home made Chinese food, made by mom, Hunter and Bailey. We had some General Tso's, Beef Lo mein and some fried rice. Afterd all of the dishes were cleaned up, we enjoyed Rieley's Gotcha day cake, that had 3 princesses on it.
Our last stop on this vacation was Lubbock, TX. I needed to have a root canal done on Tues morning, so we stopped here Mon afternoon and did some shopping, eating at Joe's crab Shack(not very good),swimming at the hotel pool. We woke Tues morning to go to IHOP for breakfast and then headed to the dreaded dentist. The overall procedure wasn't bad, but he is not sure if the tooth can be saved. I have to go back in Sept for him to go back in and check it before filling it for good or sending me somewhere else to have it pulled.
While I was at the dentist, Tim took the girls to the Texas Tech campus to look around and then to Barnes and Noble. rieley came away with a few new books, a kid can never hav too many books, right? They came back to pick me up and we headed home, 2 long hours, We stopped at DQ for Rieley some chicken strips and the rest of us ice cream or shakes.
It was good to pull into our driveway and be home. The boys hadn't done too bad of a job cleaning after themselves, but the kitchen was a mess.
7 hours after my root canal started the numbing medicine finally wore off. Now, hopefully I will have no problems before Sept.
We left Branson, MO around 930 a.m. Sunday morning, and headed to Oklahoma City. Our sights were set for the USA Softball Hall of Fame Museum and hoping for a chance to see the fields. We saw and toured the museum and spent some $$$$$$ at the gift shop, then went over to see the fields but the gates were locked and no one was around to let us in. This is where the girls college world series is played and right now the 2010 World Cup of Softball is being played.
Since it was still early in the afternoon, we headed out for Lubbock, TX. The GPS decided to take us on the back roads of OK and TX, we finally found a hotel room in Vernon, TX, out in the middle of nowhere for the night. Rieley and Bailey enjoyed the cold pool for a short time after we had supper at a Subway, everything else was closed due to people going to church in the evenings.
