Weekend with the 505 Hutchisons

John and Maidie (aka the 505 Hutchisons) came to visit this weekend. It was fun to have them here.

It was a weekend full of dominoes, coffee, giggling teenage girls (Bethany + four nieces) throwing the football around, a ton of food and multiple trips to Sonic for iced tea.

Today, we went to the Dallas Zoo. We couldn't have asked for a better day. It was gorgeous. One of the highlights of the day--in addition to the ride on the monorail, a curious gorilla and penguins who were as interested in us as we were in them--was the opportunity to feed the manta rays. They were swimming in a low pool where we could touch them. John bought some fish to feed them and they "sucked" them out of my hand. (Which was freakishly cool.)

Chase took the day off work and Nichole was able to join us. We ended the afternoon with a picnic under the large shade trees in the park, then got John and Maidie back just in time to catch their flight back home.

It was a really, really lovely day!
