Fun things our first week

*WARNING-Lots of pictures*

We did a lot of fun things in Texas the first week and these are a few of them.
Elena loved Grandma and Grandpas Dog and Cat. I'm pretty sure if we stayed any longer, Elena would have killed them each with love. We're pretty sure that she squeezed the cat so hard he threw up. Poor Paco.
But she's cute so its ok.
Patrick loved playing with Daddy's iPad whenever he needed something to do. He loved playing bowling with Grandma and Gabe.
Patrick also got a haircut while we were there because he was starting to look a little shaggy. I told him to smile and this is what I got.
Lucia was really funny when she was at Grandma and Grandpas. She opened up the cupboard, pulled a bowl out and said "I wanna make cookies". So Grandma put all the kids on the counter so they could help her make some really yummy cookies.
The girls kept sticking their fingers in the brown sugar and licking their fingers.
Elena loved wearing all of Beca's things even her hat. We even found the girls one day upstairs with Beca's sparkly glitter lotion all over everything.
We went shopping at Costco and some yummy Costco hotdogs. But Patrick felt the need to listen to the cups.
We went to a mall to walk around and it had an ice rink in it and a merry-go-round. We took the kids for a ride on the merry-go-round. I love the kids expressions as they were going around, especially Patricks.

We went to a park over by Roxanna and Diego's house. It was pretty dang cold because of the cold wind but the kids had a good time.
The park had a handy capped swing and the kids loved swinging in it.

Patrick had fun going down the slides in all different ways, I was pretty sure that he was going to fly off and break his neck but he had a lot of fun.
Lucia was fun to watch running around and the girls loved going down the slides.

There was a giant rock in the middle of the playground and Jesús convinced Patrick to climb to the top even though he is afraid of heights.
Then Patrick climbed up all by himself, he doesn't look nervous at all right? He just couldn't get down on his own.
