A Wacky boy in Waco

Hunter and I treked up to Waco last week to visit his Mimi and Bapa and do a little shopping along the way in Austin for Baby Jones.

Hunter accumulated a number of cars and trucks throughout the 5 days that we were away from home and could not have been more thrilled to add to his collection.

At one of our stops in Austin at this cute shop, Baby Coco, Hunter found some vintage cars and went straight to playing. He had the cars lined up on the floor and did not want to leave. He kept telling me, "Two minutes." Finally, his grandmommies couldn't stand it anymore and agreed to buy him one of the cars. He settled on a red one with a white stripe down it. In my attempt to have him choose the less pricey VW Bus model, I suggested, "Hunter, don't you want to take this one?" His reply..."I want both of them." So much for saving a few bucks. He ended up with the red one and rode all the way to Waco with it on his lap.

Speaking of wacky... here is Hunter in some soft rollers. Doesn't he look darling?

Oh, to top the last one, here he is in his great-grandmother's earrings. What a charmer? Can you say rehearsal dinner pictures?

Friday, we went to the Mayborn Museum down at Baylor and Hunter had a ball. He loved showing me all of the neat things since he had been there once before. I was amazed! It is a great museum and has great attractions for little ones. Here is Hunter in the sound booth making some music.

One of our ventures was a trip to Hillsboro to a great antique store. Afterwards, we met up with the cousins, Ryan and David, who had made the trip down from Fort Worth. Here are the 3 silly boys at Braums enjoying an afternoon treat of icecream.

All in all, it was a great trip to Waco. We enjoyed being with Mimi and Bapa and hope to get back up there again soon!
