Small town Texas

Saturday morning Ryan got Ainsley a new bike helmet since she had an accident within 15 minutes of getting her bike home last night!
Saturday before we took my dad to the train station we had breakfast at this small town gem! Best breakfast around!! It was voted one of the best cafes in Texas!
A favorite of the Bush family!
And Ainsley!

Ryan informed my dad at the end of the meal he was drinking from a President Bush mug. My dad was not too happy...he somehow didn't notice the large seal :)!
But I guess the coffee was too good, he finished it!
Time for the train!
We had a lot of time to read and chat...the train was delayed 4+ hours!!!
Ainsley and me on one of our many walks to pass the time! It was super windy!!


So thankful we got to visit with my dad this week!!

Kite, lights & bike!

It was windy today so we tried to fly a kite with Ainsley! It was her first time flying a kite!
Note to me-don't buy $1 kites....they don't work :(.

We put up a few more lights today!
My dad tried to fix the kite...it kept nose diving into us :(!
We bought Ains a bike for Christmas and gave it to her a little early! She loved it!!!

Week in review!

We've had a fun week with my dad. Earlier this week Ains had her sweet friend Claire over to have dinner and fun!
They made cookies!
Ains loved those!!
Wednesday Ains had an early morning audiology appointment so we started the day with donuts!
The hospital was already decorated!!


Ains waiting for her appointment watching Doc McStuffins!
Before...
And after! Ainsley needed new ear buds and she asked for Baylor colors right before she had her surgery a few weeks ago! The audiologist asked for gold glitter in addition to the Baylor colors-Ainsley loves them!
My dad wanted to see the Mars factory so we dropped by there on our way home! Apparently 85% of all snickers are made in Waco-who knew!!

Time to decorate!!
Ainsley supervised the decorating while eating Cheetos!
We went to see Big Hero 6! A really cute movie!!
These two love popcorn!!!
Ains had a play date with a friend from school at the park! It was a beautiful day!

We played "school" this afternoon-Ains was Miss Emily and I was Ainsley. She encouraged me to "work hard" at my school work! Very encouraging :)!

Happy Thanksgiving!

So many things to be thankful for this year!!! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
We celebrated this year at Cracker Barrel!
No cooking or clean up and we shopped while we waited!!
