Watch-It Wednesday: Good-bye Texas

Note: Prepare yourself for a long, picture-filled post. :)

My last few days in Texas, like my first ones :), were heaps of fun. Since both of the girls have school on Fridays, Grandma and Grandpa took me to the Palo Duro Canyon on that last day of watching the li'l cousins. It was beautiful..the pictures I have do not do it justice!

The canyon walls all looked like different objects...Castle walls, light houses, citadels. I wished we were equipped to take the hikes up to different peaks!


Isn't it just...breathtaking?


Shadow pix...grandpa & me :)

On our way home, papa  - who's looking for a new car himself - took me shopping at a used car lot. There wasn't a whole lot to choose from...

But on closer inspection, they were cheery, colorful options.

Finally, I found one that seemed perfect.

And after some...modifications...


Put Discovered it had my name on it! :)


Saturday was my last night with my cousins (and my aunt and uncle, who returned late Friday night). Caleigh-bug and I spent a good part of it on my bed, playing with her large assortment of musical "instruments." Since my computer was right there, I couldn't resist turning on the camera and recording (she was delighted with that plan). Video quality may not be the best, but the memories it preserves are invaluable! :)

Have a twinklin' Wednesday!

Breanne said...

I remember seeing the Duggar family having fun with those cars. They look awesome! :)

Chazak! (Be Strong)

OOH! That is so pretty! I love the rustic look! So, did you encounter any of the gigantic spiders that Texas is known for?

AmazingAshley said...

Awwww!!!! Looks like you had waay too much fun! And your cousin is super cute and sweet! <3

Your description of castles and spires reminds me of the Grand Canyon--and your pictures are beautiful! I love the car--I can just see you driving *that* on the freeway, and I also love how you have managed to make "twinkle" into a verb,noun, adjective, or whatever other part of speech you fancy! It's adorable! (-:

Rachy, let me talk to our agent and I'll let ya know! :p

Breanne, I had never heard of/seen them before, but they *were* cool!

Nae-Nae, nope, thankfully I saw no spiders!!!

Ash - yes, it was a ball. And I agree she is absolutely 'dorable.

Lauren, I bet! The Palo Duro canyon is actually called "the Little Grand Canyon", so I assume there are many similarities! As to "twinkle" -- it's just such a happy, smiley word! I can't help myself (though what you said made me laugh, 'cause I hadn't even noticed it before! :)

What a fun post! Thanks for "taking" us along on your adventure to Texas (my birth state!) Loved the car photos and the Caleigh video. You girls should take your music show on the road. ;)
