Spring Break Catch up: Mutton Bustin, Beach trip, and kid's first Aggie Baseball game

Okay long over due, but here is a catch up from our Spring Break. The kids were with my parents the first half of the week, they went to a farm and picked strawberries, they got to play at some parks, have a sleepover with their cousin, and of course just had so much fun!

Thursday, Matt and I took off work and the kids chose to go back to the rodeo, which it was the last few days, so we thought it was a great idea, we only get to enjoy it once a year. To my, and most people's surprise, Katherine signed up to do Mutton Bustin. That is where you ride a sheep until it bucks you off. I explained before hand how it was, but she was brave and wanted to try it. She held on pretty good, but got bucked off and ended up with a good size bruise on her leg. BUT WE ARE SO PROUD OF HER for even wanting to try it!!

And of course going back to the rodeo meant more of the petting zoo carnival games and rides. We stayed all day again there, we had so much fun. Can't wait until next year.

Friday Matt had to work, so the kids and I went down to the beach. The water was too cold to get into, but we had a great day just playing in the sand and enjoying the sunshine and the sound of the ocean.

Saturday we took a nice family day trip to Texas A&M for the kids to watch their first A&M Baseball game and they LOVED IT!! We got into town and had a nice lunch on the patio of one of our favorite burger places. Then we walked around campus. Katherine had so many questions, I loved how much she wanted to learn about college, A&M, where mommy and daddy lived and fell in love. She is a future Aggie in training. The kids loved the game, we bought tickets for lawn seats since there is a playground right by outfield where the kids loved playing and watching the game at the same time. And they both made friends with other kids there. And of course we had sno-cones and ice cream :) Colin said he wants to go see another game because those were the BEST sno-cones. The kids were sad when the game was over and it was time to leave Aggieland.
