We left my parent's house and drove to Lubbock; that evening we had dinner with Troy (another one of Jeremy's college roommates) and Kim. It was nice catching up and meeting their new little one. The boys had a great time playing with their kids in their beautiful backyard (would have been a great photo opportunity-I'll learn). Thanks for letting Longhorn fans in your house! ;o) It was wonderful to see you.
The next day we went to the Science Spectrum, the boys had a lot of fun. Thanks Kim for going with us.
Our last stop before our trek home was in Slaton - my family lived there from 89-92. I wanted to show Jeremy and the kids around so we ate at Pizza Hut and drove by my dad’s old church, our house and other places I wanted to share with them (again no pics--so frustrating). We stopped at the Slaton Bakery for goodies for the road. They have the BEST thumbprint cookies-- yummy! It has been 15 years since I have been there, but it is funny how going back floods you with memories. It makes me think of friends and wonder where they are today. I am hoping to reconnect with some of them.
We are glad to be home-- now time to get ready for school to start!
