I went home for a week to help my dad paint. It was a lot of fun to spend some quality time with him but painting is hard work. Actually it's not the painting, it's the prepping! But I was happy I got to go home to help. I'm sorry friends, I didn't make an effort to see anyone :( but I figured that I probably wasn't going to have a lot of time to do much! Thanks old roomies for getting together for dinner one night! It was really great to see you and catch up! My friend Hailey also came down from Poky one night to do dinner! Thanks guys! I really do appreciate the effort that you guys put forth to come and see me!
Well it's been rodeo time here in Houston. I am really impressed the way the city acknowledges it! I was able to go twice! Once was a girls night with some ladies from my ward. Its was a lot of fun to be able to get to know them better. We also went with Joel and Mylinda. We were in the "action seats" which means we got free snacks and beverages and were right down in the action. I must say that Houston puts on a mighty fine rodeo! After the rodeo there is a concert. The first one was Big and Rich and the second one was Brooks and Dunn. They were both really good but I am kind of partial to Brooks and Dunn!
