In an effort to keep our blog more up to date I thought I would write a little bit. I also am at work again and have nothing else to do, so why not. That is also the reason there are no pictures, though we should get some up this week as we had a lovely photographer take some during our adventures this week.
Livy and Amanda have both been a little sick recently. It started in the little one and carried into mommy who is getting the worst of it, hopefully, right now. With Amanda being pregnant it just makes everything worse, but she is a great sport about everything so she is fighting through.
We have been lucky to have my littlest sister Natalie come and visit this week. It has been fun having some company for a change, and Livy loves the new playmate. We are not the most exciting hosts and have mostly spent time watching movies and such. My work schedule also causes me to sleep through the day most of the time, so that hurts things too.
We did have a lot of fun on Saturday though as we went to the Dr Pepper Museum in Waco. Natalie is a big fan, and we enjoy it too so we though it would be fun. It was created in Waco, and it was kind of fun to walk through the original store and learn a little about it. I had no idea that it is actually the oldest of the major sodas beating Coke by a year, and Pepsi by 12.
The highlight of the trip came at the end when we purchased Dr Pepper floats made fresh from the soda fountain. Now if you have never had one where they put syrup in the cup and add the carbonated water, let me tell you, you are missing out. They also have a special type of Dr Pepper as it is made with pure cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup. Besides it being more healthy it makes an already fabulous beverage absolutely amazing. Natalie referred to it as the necter of the Gods. We bought a few bottles and cans of the special recipe to take home, as well as Dr Pepper BBQ sauce and A&W BBQ sauce. The Dr Pepper sauce is amazing, and we have yet to try the A&W.
We will be sad to see Nat go on Wednesday, but she will be followed by my other little sister Mary on Friday. It is so fun to have other people come and visit. It is especially good for Amanda as I spend most of the time that she is home asleep. Hopefully we will get word from the Air Force soon and we can move on from this wretched schedule.
