Busy but very little (if any) stitching....picture heavy

End of the school year and senior year activities are in full swing so not much stitching being done around here.  I hope to get a good start on a new model this weekend now that I've caught up on some rest from the activities below.

First off, last weekend DH and I chaperoned the band's spring trip to Dallas.  The bands participated in a competition at the Majestic Theater and pretty much blew away the competition.  We came home with 10 trophies, including one of our bands winning overall.

Other activities included hanging out at the Galleria (and ice skating....first time this century I've ice skated.  It's like "riding a bike" once you get started), Six Flags (I LOVE coasters!), Medieval Times, breakfast and music at House of Blues, dinner at Bucco di Beppo (sp?), lunch at the West End,  and Perot Museum.  A good time was had by all.

We arrived home from Dallas Monday night.  Then our symphonic band traveled to Austin Thursday to be honored by the Texas state legislature with a proclamation read on the House floor by our State Rep.  They also had a picture taken with him on the stairway and played a concert at an outdoor rotunda.  It was a long day starting at 4:45 am but a very fun day.  I'm so proud of our band kids and directors for all their hard work for earning this honor!

What a fun week!  Hopefully next time, I'll have some stitching to share.

Happy stitching!
