Check out the skirt Amber and I made this past weekend. I made the pattern and the skirt, Amber sewed on the lace and the buttons. I think she did a really nice job. For the fabric we used a duvet cover I bought on sale from Ikea for $5.
Amber is excited to move on to the next skirt. I think I am going to let her do more of the sewing next time. She is really excited to use the sewing machine. I got an old curtain from a yard sale for 50 cents that we are going to use this time. I am all for using cheap fabric to practice with.

We walked up to see the Capital Building. Devon and Brennon went inside. The rest of us sat under a tree to rest for a bit.
We took a train ride at the park also. Poor Sarah got stung by a bee on her finger, while we waited for our train ride to start.
The wind outside our hotel almost blew Devon away.
We enjoyed some cupcakes at Hey Cupcake.
We had some good grub at Torchy's. They had really good tacos and queso. Devon is still thinking about the fajita taco he had. I didn't try that one but the fried avacado and trailer park tacos were really good.
We also headed over to the flea market at Round Top on Saturday before driving home. We got back home around 8am on Sunday morning. That drive was killer. It seemed like it took us FOREVER to get out of Texas.
Go back and check out my post on Houston. I forgot to post a picture of a man we saw all over Houston carrying a giant cross. Amber pointed it out, and I went and fixed my mistake.
We went to the Blue Bell ice cream factory. My favorite part is when you get a scoop of ice cream at the end.
We went to the Antique Rose Emporium.
The kids enjoyed pulling each other in their wagons.
Devon even shot a movie. Too bad he lost our video camera on our last day in Texas.
Sarah enjoyed taking pictures with her Russian camera.
We also stopped by our favorite spot to climb trees and take pictures in the Blue Bonnets
It was fun to see our old friends.
I couldn't believe how tall Devon's friend Bryan had gotten
We walked around the LDS temple grounds. It has such a peaceful feeling.
Warren enjoyed bossing Garryn around
We also took a free boat tour, but we weren't allowed to take any pictures. We were kind of bummed about that.
Our next stop was Brenham Texas. I will post about all we did there tomorrow.
UPDATE: I can't believe I forgot to post this picture. Amber is the one who reminded me. We saw this guy pulling his cross on two separate days in two different parts of Houston. We had get a picture of him on the second day.
Devon got to sit with Forest Gump at the wax museum
The Riverwalk is always fun to walk around We took the trolley to the Mexican market area. We were all pretty tired after all that and decided to call it a day. The next day we went to the outlets in San Marcos before heading to Houston. More on our adventures tomorrow.
