so, so, so...

the littles & i went to tyler this week.  mon-thurs
i am beat.

tyler, tx is NOT hometown to...
the gap (it closed. what town does NOT have a gap, i ask you??)
normal turn signal lights (they're yellow & blink at you. so weird.)

tyler, tx IS hometown to...
earl campbell
mercados mexican restaurant (where butter comes in a squirt bottle, truly perfecting tortilla eating)
roadside rose stands
my sweet friends (whom i dearly, dearly love & who make up for the lack of gap & weird lights)

we swam, ate crap, chatted incessantly, made rope bracelets, & painted toes.
it could have been summer 15 years ago {+ 7 kids}.

does tyler still even have a mall? i think people have given up on shopping in that town, no? i did hear that brookshires finally started to carry some organic food though!

Sounds like so much fun!!! I can't believe there isn't a gap there - I agree what town that size doesn't? And I know what you mean about those flashing yellow lights - they have them in Waco and they are the most confusing thing! Hope you recover from the business of travel with kids!
