Catching up….Jurassic Park 2

You may remember I went to the dramatic recreation of Jurassic Park at the Heard Natural Science Museum and Animal Sanctuary in McKinney last holiday season. Well, it’s that time again. The animatronic T-Rex is back. I guess because I’m so much older and wiser this year, I wasn’t scared of the dinosaurs like I was last year – at least not really scared. I mean they are pretty real looking and make growling noises and all so it’s natural to have a little fear – keeps you on your toes, right?

Anyway, they are around until the end of January and it really is a good way to enjoy the outdoors so check it out.

Catching up….Happy Halloween

There’s a bunch to cover with Thanksgiving and all, but I’ve been told that I need to address Halloween. Yeah, it was almost a month ago, but it was such a good time that it does deserve some attention. I mean there was costumes, candy, and roaming the streets at night – what’s not to love?

I thought Halloween was going to be a fairly normal ghoulish night with mommy and daddy taking me trick-or-treating and grannie manning the door for other trick-or-treaters. I was shocked when grannie showed up in costume as one of my superhero sidekicks and came with us. It was so cool and sweet to see my grannie dressed up. She really made all of us smile. We didn’t cheat anyone out of candy. We left a bowl outside which was probably gone after the first few heathens came by. Whatever the case was I was busy collecting my own bag of treats.

Batman and Batgirl ready for action!

 

At the movies

I couldn’t stand it – Happy Feet 2 had been out for a full day so I made my parents take me to the movies. I mean how long was I suppose to go without knowing how life turned out for Mumble. After all, Happy Feet 1 didn’t say they lived happily ever after or anything – talk about a cliffhanger. …

Anyway, we decided to go to the drive-in with Grannie. I love the drive-in, but one thing I can always count on is daddy singing Alone at the Drive-in from Grease in his best Travolta voice….stranded at the drive-in, branded a fool, what will they say Monday at school….

Another reason we went to the drive-in was so Grannie and I could see Happy Feet 2 and mommy and daddy could see The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (this is one of daddy’s guilty pleasures so don’t make fun of it – and don’t make fun of 90210, past or present, because that is another one of his guilty pleasures).

I’m glad we did it this way because that allowed daddy and mommy to save some dignity. Going to the drive-in also helped daddy not look like a creepy old guy going to this movie in an actual theater with 200 little 16 year-old girls. It also kept me out of the middle of the whole Team Edward vs. Team Jacob battle that mommy and daddy have been in since the first Twilight movie – daddy is Team Edward and mommy is Team Jacob – talk about mixed marriages…..

Anyway, they say their movie rocked and are already counting down to part 2. So as a whole, movie night was awesome all around. Thank you mommy, daddy, and Grannie.

Lt. Dustin Vincent

I found out yesterday that my third cousin, Lt. Dustin Vincent (Army), was killed in action in Iraq. He was married with one child. The turmoil over seas seems so far away at times and so close to home other times. I know the men and women who serve and protect our country do so knowing that their death is possible, but they continue to serve for all of our freedoms. Thank you to all of our service men and women, past and present. Rest in peace, Dustin.
