Its seems like I just did this...

It wasn't that long ago that I traveled all around looking at colleges with Tyler...I know lots of you guys think I'm crazy, but I'm having fun.  I never went to college so I love going to the different colleges and seeing different things.  Austin is looking to go into the AFROTC so we went and visted some colleges that have the ROTC program.

First we visted Marquette University, Wisconsin.  Didn't get pics, but really like the campus really nice facilities and it is relatively close to home.

Next we went to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona.  Man they do a lot of Engineering, Austins favorite, Aerospace Engineering...really neat facilities, top notch all the way.

this osprey flow into the airport restaurant we were at outside of Mesa, AZ
It was so cool and Austin was able to speak to the Captain and Navigator.
What a great group of Marines and Navy service men.

look whos smiling
It just goes to show you what he loves 

Next onto Texas, we saw Baylor and TCU....can I just tell ya for this Chicagoan girl, I loved Texas....The weather, the people, the weather, the colleges, the weather...warm and sunny with a few sprinkles mixed in, just perfect!  I know, I know we were there in the spring and the summer gets HOT!  Well I think I need to thaw out my old bones down there.

On our way to Texas from AZ
Look who has a half smile on his face
once again, we are in a plane, hmmmm what make that boy happy

this by far was MY personal favorite.
It is a nice campus and wonderful facilities.

no pics of TCU, Austin wasn't "feeling" it that day.
I on the other hand bought Trevor lots of items.
TCU is on Trevors top 10 list, no wonder why Austin didn't like it!

Getting some lovin 

My favorite holiday is Easter....I love the thought that spring is almost here, warmer weather will be upon us and I feel like there is less stress around Easter than Christmas.

Now that the kids are older they tend to not want to do to much "kiddie" things, but having Ava now they are excited to participate with her and see the holidays thru her eyes again.  It is so fun!

We had beautiful fellowship
We had a beautiful time rejoicing that
