Last weekend we went to Frisco, Texas to visit our friends and family. Wade and Kathy live near Dallas and Doug's sister Shelley lives in the Houston area. This was my first visit to the Lone Star state and I was so surprised how green and how clean Texas is.
We stayed with our friends Wade and Kathy in their beautiful new home. Just seeing the kind of home you can buy in Texas makes it tempting to move there.
Alyssa and Wade became the best of friends and Aly definitely misses her buddy Wade.
Kathy made an amazing Mother's day brunch for us. It was wonderful and so delicious. Thanks Wade and Kathy for a great time in the Lone Star state.

On Saturday we went to the pool by Wade and Kathy's house with Wade and Kathy and Doug's sister Shelley and her family (they were so great and drove from Houston to spend time with us). Doug wanted to give Alyssa her first swim lesson. The minute Aly's toes touched the cold water she gave the loudest cry...guess she likes her pools to be heated.

We had amazing food, and fun times with family and friends in Texas. We went to Uncle Julio's a tex mex restaurant in North Dallas (amazing fajitas) and then we went to a bbq place called Rudy's for some good Texas bbq. Yummy! At Rudy's they had two different kinds of bbq sauce Rudy's original bbq sauce and Rudy's sissy sauce...Doug was tempted to use the sissy sauce (because the original sauce had a little kick to it), but feared he would be teased endlessly on the blog.

Pics of Aly

Alyssa had her first trip to DisneyLand with her cousins the Bruschkes. We had lots of fun even though it was 95 degrees.

Here are some cute pics of Aly in her pink overalls.

Alyssa's blessing

Alyssa was blessed on April 13, 2008. Alyssa's Aunt Sarah took some beautiful pics of Aly in her blessing dress. Thanks Sarah!
