Family Vacation and Summer Fun

Here are a couple of pic's from our Family Vacation in Dallas.  We had a really fun time swimming, shopping and going to the Dallas Aquarium.  Lilly liked the tiger and the Monkeys......Yes we were at the Aquarium not the Zoo, but they had lots of animals.  Sophia just liked hanging out.  They both were great travelers.

Lilly is holding her very favorite Baby Bunny in the picture above.  She loves him more then anything!  She attached on to him at the time of Sophia's birth and our move.  Rusty and I are constantly saying to each other  "Where is Baby Bunny?".

We recently went to the Woodward Elks Rodeo with Grams and Gramps and Nana and Granddad.  Lilly really liked it and talked about the cowboys and clowns afterward.  We also went to the Rodeo Parade the next morning with Aunt Devan and Matt.  It was hot, but everyone had fun. 

My Grandma Bennett came to visit us which was a special treat.  She doesn't leave Texas very often, so we were very excited to have her visit.  She enjoyed seeing the girls and some of Rusty's families farm land.  She lived most of her life on the farm, so it was fun for her to see what Rusty does her in Oklahoma.

Our Family has also been picking Sand Plums here near our home and making Sand Plum Jelly.  Growing up this was my very favorite jelly, but I didn't know how much work it took to make.  I really appreciate all the sweet people that took time to make it during my childhood.  It is fun to make and even more fun to eat!

We are excited to go and see the new addition to the Roush family this weekend.  Our Cousin Hannah Beth arrived on 8-9-10 and we can't wait to hold her.  We will post pictures soon of our new cousin.

Oh my goodness ... every time you post pictures, I just can't believe how big Lilly is getting! And how much the two girls look alike! Looks like you guys have been enjoying your summer!

Great idea with the aquarium rather than the zoo! Air conditioning this time of year is essential! Glad you had a chance to get away before Rusty gets busy with planting season.
