Mr. Fixit

This is Mr. Fixit! This past week my engine light came on in my car so I couldn't drive. Austin asked why we weren't going any place so I told him my car was broken. All day he insisted on fixing Mommy's car. So, he got his hard hat on and his tools and headed outside. I was just going to let him play with his tool around my car but he asked me to put the hood up so he could see the engine. He looked for things that looked liked screws and used Phelipe.Then he hit some "engine" with Pat the hammer.

Mommy's Car is fixed!!!
Funny thing is, I took the car for a spin after he "fixed it" and the engine light turned off!

Friday Fun

Today we went to the Fort Worth Science Museum with our friends Karley and Kolton. Austin had a pretty good time because of the trains. Other then that he really didn't want to do anything else. This kid loves trains, train tracks and cars. We spent 25 dollars to play with trains. I think I could have bought a set for that much at the store! The kids really enjoyed the water fountain outside of the museum. (That is free!!) We were leaving so Kolton and Austin had a blast and were completley soaked!!! Luckly, I had blankets and extra clothes in my car.

Hi! My Name is....

Welcome Home

Everyday I try to think of something for me and Austin to do outside of the house. Since this weekend is the 4th I wanted to do something patriotic. I remembered that soldiers coming home for a little R&R always come through DFW to catch their connecting flight. So, we picked up Grandpa on the way to the airport to greet the soldiers!! I have to say that this was one of the best things I have ever done! It was so nice to shake the hand of someone who is fighting a war for us. They all were so nice and seemed very grateful that we were there cheering them on. There was this one women there who just had a baby and was picking up the new daddy. OMG! It was so awesome to see the reunion. It really put tears in my eyes and everyone around! One of the soldiers took her time to shake everyone hand and she even talked to Austin for a minute. He of course took the time to introduce her to Lightning McQueen. Austin even shook the hand of two gentlemen. They were very

nice. I will most definitely be doing this again before I go back to work.

If anyone who is reading this wants to come along let me know!
Here we are waiting for them to arrive.
This guy was very nice. He shook Austin's hand.
Here is a picture of the new Daddy being greated by his wife and new baby!
