Davidson Reunion/Easter Sunday

Katy's family had a small reunion this past weekend. Her Uncle Billy came down from Petersburg, Alaska, and Great Uncle Bill came in from Ojai, CA. To celebrate, there was a big crawfish boil at Eve's Garden in Brookshire. Look it up, it's a neat place. Lots of crawfish and good times were had by all. Cornhole was played until the lights (sun) went out, and the little ones (CRG and cousin Avery) had a very exciting Easter egg hunt. Thanks to Jim and Kelli for bringing the bounce house. Thanks to Uncle Dicky for bringing hula hoops!

After church on Easter Sunday, we made our way to Uncle Dicky's for a little bar-b-q! Once the rain cleared, it turned out to be a gorgeous day. Once the grass dried, some serious badmitton took place! Again, a great time was had by all.

City of Katy Easter Egg Hunt

The City of Katy had an Easter Egg Hunt for little ones a week before Easter. CRG and his cousin, Avery, went wabbit hunting...I mean Easter egg hunting. Honestly, I don't know if I'll ever go back. Unfortunately, it was very unorganized. Nevertheless, the littles one (those that were in the 0-2 age group) had a nice time. The 2-4, 5-6, and 7-8 age groups were absolutely crazy. Here are some pictures from the event.

Practice and the Real Thing

Saturday, Katy's lovely sister Beth received 4 tickets to the last exhibition game for our beloved 'Stros at Minute Maid Park.....ahhh, Minute Maid Park. It's definitely my favorite park. I hope it quickly becomes CRG's favorite as well. Thanks Beth for the tickets!

Just enjoying the game.

An ode to the Dome Dog!

Katy's Icee that she really wanted, but never had. Thanks, Son.

Check out The Little Puma's!

The new restaurant dedicated to the original Killer B's, Big and Baggy!
Supposedly, this is what happens when Lance Berkman kisses you, according to Beth.

Monday night was Opening Day. I think it's probably one of the greatest days of the year. Seriously. Once again, I hope CRG thinks the same very soon. Katy may try and flush those ideas down the drain though. Well, maybe? Anyways, Opening Day was filled with a flyover by 4 Apaches that just returned from Iraq. Can you say Saa-weet! I'm a fan of flyovers....especially done by F-16's. Apaches are pretty dang cool too. Lyle Lovett sang the National Anthem and Katy spotted one of her favorite singers walking around the concourse, Paul Wall. Even though the 'Stros lost the game, we had a great time. Oh, and CRG is an official Astros Buddies Club member for the 2nd straight year.

Old friends.

Katy's favorite musical artist, Paul Wall. She was embarrased to take a picture with him.

Katy's favorite boot!

Dog Park

Thursday, the city of Katy had an Easter Egg Hunt for dogs. Usually, we want nothing to do with these types of things. You know, a bunch of crazy people dressing up their dogs....to hunt Easter eggs....seriously? Well, Charlie and I had nothing to do Thursday night and admission was a bag of dog food which went to a local animal shelter. Why not help out the community and let Charlie enjoy the Dog Park? Well he was very excited to go, but he really wanted to look good for all the ladies. Sooooo, I went ahead and let him wear his favorite (and only) outfit. He wore an old Katy Tiger shirt with a couple of pom-poms sticking out of his collar. Katy also made him a nice name tag (out of duct tape) on the back of shirt that read, "Charlie, The Rally Dog". It apparently wasn't good enough for the judges as he didn't win anything. He quickly took off his costume and found a lot of dog treat filled eggs. The shot below was taken by someone from the Houston Chronicle, it can be found here. http://www.chron.com/community/photogallery/katy/photo_gallery.html Also, a picture of Katy, CRG, Charlie, and myself can be found on the front page of the Katy Times. You can pick up your copy at most local news stands and contact Katy for our next autograph session.
