Re-living Abilene…

This trip, I felt like I got to re-live parts of my Abilene childhood through my baby boy’s eyes!…Take a look…

#1: Mammer found these cards that I played with for hours on end as a little girl. The pictures on the cards brought back memories and Quinn sat {for way longer than a two year old should} and played with them too! Gotta love it…Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 007Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 002 Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 004  #2: Daddy {and Corbin} took Quinn to play golf at Maxwell. It’s the little municipal course in Abilene that I “played” with my dad dozens of times…and was also the place where I took my 4 year old golf lessons as the only girl in a class of too many boys! :) Quinn loved it…and I loved snapping some pics as they finished up the front nine! … And, to top it off, he used MY putter! Look how tiny and precious!…Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 014 Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 015Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 022 Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 026 Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 029 Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 034 #3: We ate at a new chicken place…but, that new chicken place used to be an old BBQ place {Harlow’s} that I ate at on many occasions!…Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 049 #4: We toured the Mrs. Baird’s Bread Bakery! Who knows how many field trips took me through this place…and how many hundreds of times I’d driven by to smell the oh so yummy bread baking! And, this is the place that Mammer used to come see Santa as a little girl! Quinn loved it and was so attentive as Leslie, our guide, showed us the ins and outs of bread making!…(sadly, they wouldn’t let us take pics inside the bakery!)

They are SO yummy…and Quinn loved them too!…Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 064 Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 065 #6: We ate Costal Cookies from the mall! When I saw they were back open, I think I almost cried! And, thankfully, Quinn loved them as much as I always have! … Here he is sitting on that familiar Abilene mall floor eating his little bag full of the minis! Mmmmm mmmm!….Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 066

#7: And, last but not least, we hung out at home!…the only home that I knew from birth to age 18! I love that my little man loves it as much as I always have!…Slickpaw,Mammer, Zoe Live in Abilene 069… Next trip: The West Texas Fair and Rodeo and Perini’s! Can’t wait!!!
