Well this last weekend we went down to Aggieland to see my sister and to spend some quality time with her. This was the first time we were down there to see just her and to see her house. I got off work early on Friday so we made it to College Station in time for dinner. We got slightly lost getting to her house. In ours and Amy’s defense, that is a part of town we haven’t been too and there were no street signs so the directions did no good. HAHA
We went to dinner at Rosa’s and then headed over to the Bonfire Memorial. This fall it will be 10 years since the bonfire fell and I had never been by to see the memorial. It was so moving to read the stories of all those that died. The memorial was so simple but stood for so much. Here are some pictures. We went at night which was really cool because it was all lit up. After we got back to Amy’s house it was about that time for Teej to hit the sack. One of Amy’s roommates was staying home to watch a movie and she was more than willing for TJ to sleep while we went to a bible study to meet some of her church friends. This was a little late for me the Bible study was from 10pm-12am.
These are the 3 people that were from DFW. Sorry my shadow is in the picture.
We were up and moving around fairly early and made eggs and toast. TJ had his first egg sandwich and loved it. YAH! That’s my boy. It was raining so hard that we had to wait till about 11 before we could leave. We stopped at a few tent sales and got some good stuff at a great price. Then made our way to “the chicken”. We ended up going to the Chicken Oil instead of Dixie Chicken. We really didn’t think that Dixie Chicken, being more of a bar would have high chairs. HAHA. After we left there we headed back to the house to hang out for a while before Amy had to go to work. For dinner we headed up to Jason’s Deli to eat and visit with Amy during her break. Her manager would not let us pay because Amy was such a great employee. Yah, thanks Amy’s manager. Now here is where the adventure began. We went to 1 Target, 2 Wal-Mart’s, 1 more tent sale that closed when we pulled up, and then 1 other store that closed when we pulled up. Ugh. Then off to the house so Teej could go to bed then Tim and I enjoyed a movie with popcorn and goldfish. Amy got home as soon as the movie turned off and we got to talk to her for a bit.
He was excited to try his first "Chicken" burger. he loved it
We got to go visit Amy’s church. It was such a great church. We enjoyed the service, the people, and the pastor. We went out to lunch with Pastor Randy and got to really talk to him and hear some of his past. She has a great church and are very glad that she is being taken care of.
I don't know where he learned this but kinda scary. At least we don't have stairs
One thing that Tim and I talked about after we left is that she has a good variety of friends. She isn’t just around church friends, work friends, or friends from class. She spends a lot of time with all, which of course makes her stronger and helps her grow. She has a lot of good friends that I know pray for her and she has people that she can pray for. I love it and we are so glad we got to spend some good time with her.
