Well the second day we were there was the day Kaycie and Shannon were going through the temple. It was also their wedding anniversary! It really was going to be an awesome day for them!
We spent the night in Houston so we didn't have to drive forever in the morning to get to the temple. That doesn't mean that the ride there wasn't eventful though! We had to take two cars so we would have enough room for everyone. Kaycie and I were riding in one car with my two nieces. Shannon and their friend Rob were driving in another car with my nephew. We were supposed to follow them. We go to get in the car and Kaycie asked if I would drive so she could put her makeup on. I was trying to be helpful so I said I would. I am NOT a bad driver, but all of Houston wouldn't know that. I don't need to go into detail about what happened, but I will say that I am SUPER glad there aren't any toll roads here in SLC.
We made it there safely though. My sweet friend Diane that moved to Houston a few years ago met me at the temple so she could watch my baby. This was the nicest thing ever! I can't thank you enough Diane! I knew my baby was safe in a strange city and that helped me to relax and enjoy the day at the temple. He was awesome for her too! (Really he is the best kid!) We met outside the temple hours later where I got to visit for a bit. Next time I would love to go to dinner or something, I just didn't get see her enough!
We took some pictures outside for a little while but everyone wanted to eat and the kids wanted to play. So I didn't want to bug them too much. Here are some of the pictures though. MAN! What a pretty place!
We headed to dinner at the Olive Garden and hung out in Houston some more before we left for Bay City. Kaycie and Shannon's friends decided that they wanted to go with us too so we had a little caravan of 3 cars traveling back at 11:00pm to Bay City. I got to ride with one of their friends and I had the best time getting to know her! I fell in love with all of Kaycie's friends!
We had a little slumber party at their house that night and boy was I tired!
Have I mentioned that I really miss Texas? Oh? Well I do. So much so that we are planning a family trip there in the next couple of months! I can't wait to go back.
Days 3 and 4 will be coming soon! Stay tuned.
