Memorial Weekend 2011

As I write about our Memorial Weekend I want to first say "Thank You" to all who have served, are serving and will serve in our military forces.  God Bless each and every one of you for giving all of us the freedoms we have in this AWESOME country!

Saturday morning first thing we put up our new American Flag.  Dominic loved helping his Daddy do this of course.
We planned on heading to see Kung Fu Panda 2 on Saturday afternoon.  Low and behold the one time we wanted was sold out when we arrived so we opted to see Rio instead.  It sure was a cute movie and held D's attention longer than any of the other two we have seen in a theatre.  We are taking baby steps, ha!
After dinner we headed to LaHacienda for dinner.  Unfortunately it was not very good at all so that was a bummer.
Sunday we got up and headed to see the Astros at Minute Maid.  This was Dominic's first time to see a real MLB game!  On Sunday's they have Family Fun Day so we headed there a little early to play.

Here we are before leaving our house...the excitement was brewing hence no eye to eye picture of the little dude!

One thing I have to mention that really perturbed me and my husband.  We bought tickets on line with an additional $15 for a "parking" pass.  Let it be known that our lot C was further away than some cheaper lots up close, ugh!  RIPP OFF.

Love this photo of the boys outside Minute Maid.

This picture almost does not look real.  Kinda like those big posters you can stand in front of that make you look like you were there, ha!
The Astros host a childrens fun area in the lobby of Union Station two hours prior to the game.  Huge bounce houses, balloon making clowns, face painting, etc!

We had the cheap seats of course.  Dominic was interested but got restless around the 6th.

We left before it was over but the Astros lost anyway :(

On Monday we ran a few errands, had lunch at Sweet Tomatoes (yum!) and then the rest of the day involved swimming and BBQ'ing!


Hope everyone had a nice and semi restful holiday weekend!
