I'm BAAAACCCCKKK!

After a long hiatus I am going to really try to get back into blogging. The last time I blogged I had one daughter and wasn't pregnant, now I have an 2 1/2 year old and an 8-month-old! Life is a constant adventure around the Robinson house and I want to keep everything documented! Here is a picture from a recent trip to the Ft. Worth Zoo.

Tech Football & State Fair!


This post is WAY over due! I started it a month ago! The weekend of October 8th, Ryan and I went to the Texas Tech vs. Baylor football game at The Cotton Bowl. Since the game was at the Texas State Fairgrounds we spent the afternoon at the fair and then stayed for a concert by one of our favorite Texas country artists, Wade Bowen. Grace went to Neena & Poppa's house for the weekend to give us a much-needed weekend together. She had GREAT time!

Friday night we were sitting around trying to figure out what to do without a 13-month-old and two of our favorite people, Aimee and Caleb Rosier, invited us to dinner. We went to BJ's Brewery and had a great time! I laughed so hard my face hurt!

The next morning we invited our friends going to the game with us to our house for breakfast. It was an early morning but a very yummy. After breakfast we headed to the train station to take the DART to the fairgrounds. We had a great time! Here are some pictures from our day.
Fried Frito-Pie - This won the Best Taste Award. It was pretty darn good.
Fried Grilled Cheese - YUMMY. This was my favorite.
Corn Dog - You HAVE to get one at the fair!
Fried S'mores - Oh.My.Word. Delicious!
Wade Bowen
We basically ate our way across the fair and had a wonderful time together! Thanks Neena & Poppa for watching Grace for us!
Love,

Cottonwood Arts Festival

Today we went to the Cottonwood Arts Festival in Richardson. I have always wanted to go but we have either been out of town or busy. The weather was gorgeous today so we decided to check it out. It was great to see all of the different and unique artists from across the country. It was a great family day! Here are some pictures from the day.

Grace trying a funnel cake for the first time.

Grace was tired of being in the stroller. She loved being on Daddy's shoulders!

I love this picture!

Firemen Fun!

The other day while I was watching my nephews Helen (my sister-in-law's neice) we heard sirens outside. When we realized how loud they were we decided to go outside and check it out. There were 3 huge firetrucks, a fire marshall, and tons of firefighters in full gear. The neighbor smelled smoke when she got home and called the fire department. Thankfully, it was a false alarm and everything was fine. I asked the firemen if the kids could look in the truck. The firemen was very nice to the kids and more than happy to show them around the trucks. The kids were soooo excited to sit in the firetruck and meet REAL firemen!

David woke up just in time for us to run back outside and jump up in the truck.

MOPS!

Friday Grace and I went to MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) for the first time. The first class was actually two weeks ago but Grace was sick so we couldn't go. I really enjoyed it and Grace did GREAT in childcare. It was wonderful picking her up and being told by three different childcare workers she was the BEST baby, she didn't cry once. She loves playing with other kids. Our guest speaker, Melissa Hill, was great! She talked about her husband's awesome ministry, Mercy Street. Click here to find out more about the incredible things God is doing in West Dallas. Melissa also has a blog that is very fun to read about her adventures in "the hood", A Long Way From the Theta House. The entire time Melissa was talking I couldn't help but think I had met her somewhere before. At the end of the class I got to talking to her and asked her if we had met or if she knew my mom or brother. Low and behold her kids go to the same school as my niece and nephews, I must have seen her at the school or a game. What a small world!

I don't have any pictures of the day but here is a cute one from the weekend. Have a blessed week!




Love ~
