Turning Double Digits

I can't believe my baby is 10! He chose to go to Posado's for dinner. It was a really nice evening so we sat outside on the patio.
Randy got to the restaurant before us and asked if they could do something special for Graham's birthday without the loud and annoying singing. They brought him this!
Graham got a skateboard and Guitar Hero World Tour for his birthday. Although, I think Randy must have used his Jedi mind tricks to talk Graham into getting the Guitar Hero, because secretly it's what Randy really wants.
The following Saturday we took Graham and two of his good friends to Kobe Hibachi. We had so much fun!
Graham got to wear the goofy birthday hat.
After we ate we (and by "we" I mean "they") played laser tag. Randy learned a hard lesson about not stuffing yourself with fried rice, steak and chicken and then running wildly through a laser tag course trying to defend our kids from the teenagers. This is not them playing laser tag. It's just a cool picture of our chef firing up the grill.

Happy Birthday future scientist/game maker/proffesional skateboarder/rock band guitar player! You are loved more than you know.

Dinosaur World

Rachel has been studying fossils in school (and she also made a perfect score on her math TAKS, holla!) so we decided to take a day trip to Glen Rose to see Dinosaur World. Did I mention she made a perfect score on her math TAKS? I'm just sayin'.

Here's Graham and Randy inside a dinosaur's mouth.

Here's Rachel running away from a dinosaur. I cannot remember any of the names of the different ones. It looks like a T-Rex, but really it's some sort of somethingasaurus.

This actually is a T-Rex. It's a little disconcerting, isn't it?

Those longnecks don't look a bit afraid. Big huh?

Here's Graham running.
After we walked the whole path and saw all the dinosaurs and sang the theme song to Jurassic Park until our kids ran away screaming, they got to dig for real fossils. Strategically hidden, of course.

After we finished seeing Dinosaur World, we went to the river nearby where you can see the real dinosaur footprints. It's actually really cool and there are a lot of footprints to see.

This is me realizing that it was a stupid idea to climb rocks with flip-flops on. Thanks for capturing that moment, Randy. Really.

Always a good sign that we had a good day.
