Our Trip to Allen

Okay, I know I am WAY behind on my blogging. have been a lagger. I have been a lagger for most of this year on my blogging. I have no excuse other than life just gets in the way. I have been working part time, being a mommy full time and training for another half marathon...busy busy! I have also decided that if I have time to Facebook, then I have time to blog. I want to turn my blog into a book at the end of this year so I better get to catching up!

Anyways, in May, we went to Allen, Texas for Kiely's graduation from High School. It was a short trip but we packed a lot in our time there. Great Grandma Charlotte came with us. We had so much fun. It was so nice to finally see all the places that Kiely and Tyler have talked about.
This is Kiely and Tyler's high school...it is as big as a college! They are currently building a 60 million dollar football stadium.  
 Texas has got something going right...the schools are amazing and they have parks on every corner. This is a wakeboarding park that they are building by the kids high school.

The houses are so pretty in texas!! 

 Check out this house...it has its own lake. Actually every house in the neighborhood had it's own lake. What??

A little cat nap...all that traveling wore grandma out!

Next stop was Kiely's graduation. They had it at the University of North Texas since the new stadium isn't built yet and they had 1500 students graduating!

That's a lot of people!

It was so hot! Kiely took her gown off right when she came out because she was dying. I made her put her hat back on so I could get a picture. It was seriously the grossest weather I have ever been in. The humidity was like 85%, no joke.

Aren't these two precious?  They love each other so much.

On Sunday we went to visit Grandma Charlottes younger sister. She lives about 15 minutes outside of Dallas. The last time Grandma got to see her sister was about 10 years ago! We stopped in Dallas to do a little bit of sight seeing before we went to visit. 
Dallas is so pretty. I definitely want to go back and spend more time there.

The picutes do NOT do it justice.

We had a blast in Texas. Can't wait to go back in May for Tyler's graduation!
