Saturday with PM!

First of all, it's been too long since I've blogged. For those of you who don't know what to do without my blog, I'm sorry. Now let's continue...

Saturday was our first completely free day with PM! We picked him up at 9 at the bowling alley [now allowed to go to his dorm!! He'd get in serious trouble..]. First we drove to Best Buy and bought a laptop. We settled on an HP. I've never had that brand before, but we shall see how it turns out! That took way too long. My memory is now a little fuzzy, but I believe we went to eat at the Golden Corral afterward. We ate a ton of food - buffet style (PM's favorite) and then headed back to Best Buy to pick up his laptop!

We dropped my parents off at the mall and had some time to ourselves. Ahem. Then we picked them back up & headed to the Riverwalk. Everyone has told us just how beautiful the Riverwalk was. It was pretty neat. We started out with the Alamo - but we never actually went inside. The line was too long, and we wanted to see other things. Although, I must agree with Brittney when I say that I always thought the Alamo was in the middle of the desert with cactuses surrounding it. Nope! It's stuck in the middle of the city! ...very weird...

[this is us not touching.. blah]

We wandered around downtown for a while and then went on a boat tour. M took about 300 pictures during the 20 minute boat ride. Ha. We got off and just walked around for a while.

one of my best friends, Lisa & her husband John!! We finally met!!

After some leisurely time at the hotel, we went on the search for Joe's Crab Shack. Well, we never could find it. Our GPS navigator, Sarah (who I thoughtfully named), led us to a street that did not include Joe's Crab Shack. Sooo... we settled on Hard Rock Cafe. All 4 of us got huge hamburgers and fries. M had cleaned his plate completely while the rest of us hadn't even eaten half of our hamburger. The waiter even came over and asked him about the military and if they had starved him... ha.

Then we went to a hockey game. None of us had previously been to a hockey match, but it was AWESOME!! Let me just say - hockey beats all other sports. Period. And yes, I am just saying this because I love to see fighting. Oh my gossssh. I'm not really one to encourage or love a good fight, but geez. I can't help but get excited when I see two burley men punching each others lights out in the middle of the rink! I'll blog more about that later. And no - I have no pictures of us at the game because my camera is "too big." Blah. Who ever heard of that!? And it's not even THAT big!!! Geez louise. Anyway.

breaking all the rules. very quickly. ha.

Then we took M back to the bowling alley and he marched off to his dorm.

So that was our free day.

and now I'm probably going to blow about 10 more times.. I have way too much to talk about..
