  Mare and I just got back from TX. We were there for two weeks. We left home at 4:00 am on the 4th. We took off at 8:00am and got in Dallas at 1:30. Our flight was only 3 1/2 hours long, but it seemed a Lot longer, because of the time deference. Our friends were waiting for us, so we got into the car and drove 2 hours to their house. It was Great to see them again. The purpose of us going down there was not only to see our friends and spend time with them, but to volunteer at the "Family Camp" they were having there were they live. We had a blast, while we were there. We cleaned, made beds, and cleaned some more. :)
                                                              The beautiful sunrise. 

                             Mare on the airplane. (do you see that little tractor? It's sooo cute.)

 I Love all the circles. :)   
                              When we got there they showed us around. We went down to the lake.

                                             The lake is Really low, because of the drought. 
                           This is what we did almost every afternoon after working all morning. :)

 We also took off wallpaper and painted in their house. :) The wallpaper was Sooo hard to take off. The people that put the wallpaper on, put it on top of some other wallpaper. We had to use a steamer to get it all off and it took a Long time.      
 Here are the before pictures. :) This is what we saw when we went into their house when we got there. :)
                        Two of the walls they had already done. (they were the easy walls.) :)

                                            This is the Horrible wallpaper that wouldn't come off.
                                           Emma steaming the walls. :) (we took turns steaming)
                                                                 The gooey mess. 
                                                  We are almost done with this wall.
                                                                    Mare steaming. :)
Painting!!!! Emma and I started to paint primer on the walls. 
                                               It's a Lot better looking now. :)

                                  One of the finished walls. (they painted the walls green after we left.)
 I Have a Ton more pictures. I will post them soon.
