We went there yesterday with the kids before the Astros lost to the Rockies.
We ate at the southwest grill before the game, and the kids played in the water park. It was pretty nice. Yesterday, I got out for about 2 hours and hit 7-8 pawn shops to see if they had any diamonds in the rough, but alas, all cruddy, 3rd rate guitars. I haven't done the Pawn shop thing since I was stationed in CO. and I used to find deals like crazy there.
Friday we took the kids to NASA, which was ok, I think I would have enjoyed it more, had the lines for the tram been shorter. Kids don't wait in line very well, so I ended up watching them run around the kid areas the whole day.
Last night kind of brought the whole trip to a halt.
The people we're staying with have a dog and 2 cats. as soon as we got back from the game, the dog tried to nip both of my boys in the face.
He was eating and they came within about 5 feet, and he lunged. Kinda sucks because he'd been very good with the kids until then. Black Lab. The owners are sick with guilt about if
something happened, luckily my kids moved pretty quickly, but the issue still remains. not the best part of the trip.
