Texas Fun!

Here I am, for what seems to have become my semi-annual post. The truth is, I was having trouble accessing my blog and just never took the time to try to recover the password, etc...lazy, I know! In any case, I really have wanted to get back into the swing of blogging/writing. And I do miss visiting so many of your blogs too! With the dawn of Facebook, I keep connected to so many of you that way, isn't quite the same, and I don't get to see ALL of you there.

Life is moving right along for dear Benjamin and I. Hard to believe that he will actually be three years old in just a few months! We just got back from a visit to my parents, who are wintering in TX this year. While we did endure some cooler than average weather, we were able to soak up a few really nice days and make some memories! Benjamin loved the Gulf of Mexico, and had fun running back and forth throwing seashells in the water. I could have stayed there all day with him, just watching him splash and scream...but the water was quite cold!

My little man is quite the social butterfly and his thing lately is to ask virtually EVERYONE (or so it seems somedays) what their name is. Fortunately, for him, he met some pretty nice and indulgent people along the way. We met 'Cowboy Jack' at a restaurant and he was able to try on his fancy hat!
Benjamin is also a real animal lover...too bad our kitty is so skittish and still uncomfortable being out and about when he is around and awake. I know someday they will be great friends!

One of the nicer days was spent at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, TX! The picture with the goat above was taken there, at the petting zoo. Well, that's a kind of petting, right?
It was great to have a week with grandma and grandpa, who he hadn't seen since they headed south back in October. And now we won't see them until mid to late April, so it was great to have the time with them!

I hope this post finds all of you well and enjoying the new year. God's blessings to you all!
