Seeing the Sights.......

L-dog and I have had a fun-filled weekend!  Saturday we went to Hard Rock Cafe (my favorite for obvious reasons), Sunday we ventured out to the Museum of Natural Science which sounds boring but was awesome....animals, IMAX movie, dinosaurs, gemstones, even a Zoltar machine in the lobby like the one on "Big"....if you haven't seen this classic gem, stop reading and go watch it.  We ended our outing with a delicious Tex-Mex meal at Pappasito's Cantina.

Having purchased a "City Pass" at the museum, we decided to make Memorial Day extra special by making a visit to NASA.  With the exception of several screaming children, we were both very pleased with our experience.  We toured mission control, the astronaut training facility, watched video of all launches, touched actual moon rock with our own hands, and checked in with astronauts currently floating above the earth. So very cool.  Our dining experience Monday was Pappadeaux's Seafood Kitchen (tasty cajun food).

Cheers! from Pappasito's
Tuesday (today) we explored the Downtown Aquarium and had a blast....Almost new, very clean, friendly staff, and great exhibits. We even rode the "shark voyage" and I must admit I was startled by the "surprise missing {mechanic} great white shark" that popped up along our ride! Game fish, reptiles, and even white tigers were on the visual menu. We pet sting rays and bamboo sharks too.....all before my ultrasound this afternoon. The appointment went fine and the techs were friendly. I received an email shortly thereafter, while dining at PF Changs that said the results were good, and to begin the Gonal injections tonight....

Early appointment at MD Anderson tomorrow for more imaging....update ya later! <3

  1. Well, except for the ultrasound and the injections you had to endure, your Memorial Day sounds like it was a blast! I can't remember the last time I was at an aquarium or any type of museum.

    You are in my thoughts...
