We always return to the Houstonian to have the same meal we served at our reception. Really, it was good that Goose was along for the hotel stay so he could capture this picture of us in the ballroom!
No pictures to share just yet...will have lots of wedding pictures on my anniversary!
I love living in Houston because there are so many opportunities to expose the kids to the arts. For the past two days, the children and I have enjoyed performances at Miller Outdoor Theater. Yesterday, young children from throughout the city performed on various instruments. There was one girl who was six years old playing the violin. Goose could not get over the fact that someone his age was playing the violin. Today we saw the symphony. The boys picked out the various instruments and recognized some of the more popular classical songs.
I really like exposing the boys to classical music, opera, plays, musicals and art. Do I think they are going to love all of it? Probably not, but they can sit through at least forty-five minutes of an hour performance without fidgeting too much and can talk about the music afterwards with me. I would love for one of the boys to really get into classical music and especially opera because my best friend has a library of music that would make most jealous. One of my kids has to inherit this one day!
So far this summer we've seen a musical and an opera, in addition to the last two days of music. Goose liked the opera a "little-lot", which probably means not at all, but that is okay. I am just happy that he is exposed to things like this at an early age. So despite the unbearable heat, we will continue to flock to this wonderful outdoor and free theater the rest of the summer.
Today my baby brought home the MVP trophy from the Rockets Houston Media Classic. 1560 has won four years in a row! This year was even better because Lance and Johnny Harris have worked so hard to be in shape for this game. Not only does my baby look super sexy to me, he feels great and is able to play like a teenager again. Okay, maybe not like a teenager as he actually had to stretch and tape up before the game, but he did manage to snag that trophy today! Congrats to my husband and to 1560 for killing the competition. Again. Double Rods!
Goose and the Baby Hulk have been asking for an orange burst all day. I finally told them if they had a fruitable, (juice box that contains a serving of veggies), they could have one. Goose took one sip and said he would rather have a bowl of broccoli. The Baby Hulk gulped his down, but still got stuck with some broccoli for his afternoon snack.
After Lance found me like this earlier, he had a talk with Baby Hulk and Goose about last night. Goose was very clear: he wants to sleep with me and plans to continue to do so. Unable to deal with a wife who wants to sleep all day and is cranky, he told the boys they must sleep in their own beds. Since it was mom they wanted, we thought pictures might help them feel like I'm right next to them. Hopefully, this solution will last.
A picture thought I am sharing...
So very happy to see big brother!
