Bluebonnets & Stevie Nicks

Our trip back home was pretty eventful. We saw tons of bluebonnets along the roadside. Well, we NEVER miss a good photo-op, so we stopped and got a few pictures. It was a good opportunity to stretch our legs, too. I just wish we would have had a way to get a family photo.

We also got to listen to LOTS of Stevie Nicks in the car. Hattie HATES car rides. She hardly sleeps and does not want to sit still. We would be subjected to A LOT of crying, but thanks to Stevie Nicks, our roadtrips are fairly easy. One quirky tid-bit about our little girl is that popping in a Stevie Nicks cd (and ONLY a Stevie Nicks cd) will make our wailing baby grow silent and calm in about 2 seconds. It works 100% of the time. It's weird, we know, but atleast she has great taste in music ;0)!

I used to have to do the same thing to keep Sean quiet during car rides. Nothing like a little Fleetwood Mac White Album to keep him calm on those bumpy roads.

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
