Sea World and Packing

MiMi and PopPop met us in Houston on Thursday to help us pack up the house.  We accomplished a lot and celebrated with a trip to Sea World.

Prior to Sea World, we stopped for lunch at Taco Bueno.  Yummy!004

Sea World has a great playground.  Claire, of course, wanted to slide.  This slide was very big and very fast.  Claire had to slide on it many times.  “Whee!”016

It was a perfect day!072

We grabbed dinner to go and ate in the car on the way home.  Claire fell asleep right in the middle of dinner.  She had a really big day.080

Claire’s room without her monogram and most of her things.  (I admit to shedding a few tears while removing her monogram and packing things up in here.)082

All of the pictures have been taken down.  The bric-a-brac has been packed.  And the Fostoria has been packed.092



The Wilton Armetale has been packed, along with the apothecary jars.096

We accomplished a lot in a very short period of time.  Thanks, MiMi and PopPop for coming down to help us pack it up.  We had a great time with you!
