Vacation May 2011

We decided since Adam only has his internship left that we would take a small vacation. We wanted to make it fun for Parker -

Our vacation started Thursday Morning with both of us getting haircuts by the fabulous, Tiffany! Then we ate lunch with Adam's dad and headed to Lufkin. We watched Hunter play a little bit of his ball game and then headed to Andrea's (Adam's Sister) graduation from Police Academy. Then we ate at Casa Ole to celebrate... We stayed the night with my sister and got up Friday Morning and headed to the Lufkin Zoo.

We bought a family pass at the Lufkin Zoo for $40 that gets us into 60-70 zoos across the country for free or half off depending on the zoo - It gets us into Houston Zoo for free!!! I'm pretty excited about that - Houston Zoo has gotten expensive $12 for Adults and $8 for kids 1 and up! That's crazy! After the zoo, we headed to Incredible Pizza in Conroe, then went to the Houston LDS Temple, then hit up Jamba Juice, then checked into our hotel, went to Katy Mills Mall (I bought two pairs of jeans in a smaller size that I have been wearing! Oh Happy Day), ate at Rainforest Cafe, went back to the hotel and then got up Saturday Morning - Headed to Houston Premium Outlets in Cypress, found a Buc-ee's right down the road from it, went to the Children's Museum in Downtown Houston, and then came home and met my dad for dinner! Here are tons of pictures! Enjoy!

The Lufkin Zoo

We got a 2 room suite hotel - it was huge and pretty nice except for the fact that one of the bathroom doors squeaked so it was loud, the air conditioner in the bedroom wasn't the best and there was a long hair in our bed so we had to change our sheets at 11 o'clock at night - I'm pretty sure we'll get the two room suite every time we take the kids on vacation with us!

Parker loved Incredible Pizza in Conroe - let me tell you 1000 times better than Chuck E Cheese - It has bowling, putt putt, bumper cars, go carts, plus all the arcade games, a room for toddlers to play in and it's a pizza, pasta, salad, dessert buffet!  I went when Adam's family when we were dating and we knew Parker would love it!

Do you see Adam's big feet?  Yep he went down the slide with Parker!

We couldn't Pass up Jamba Juice!! Parker was a fan of the Chocolate Moo'd and Adam and I love Strawberries Wild!

We ate at the Rainforest Cafe - Parker loved it!

During the rainstorm - this elephant (that was right at our table) would move its trunk and trumpet.  Parker was scared at first since it was so close to us - but when we told him it wasn't real, he was okay with it!

We found a Buc-ee's!!!
We didn't buy any Beaver Nuggets - but we did get some amazing fudge and beef jerky!!
