Black Panthers at the polls!

This is how I feel when I keep reading about Black Panthers opening doors at voting stations across the country...and no one can provide a specific location or even a city where this is taking place. All I keep reading is a "A friend told me..."

Election Day


Rock The Vote

Yesterday was the last day of early voting. I left work at 4:45 and got in line at 4:50. A really really long line. At 5:30, I knew I wouldn't be able to vote before the daycare closed at 6:30. I was standing between two men. I told them I needed to go pick up my daughter from daycare because I knew I wouldn't have enough time. I asked if they'd mind holding my place. Both said sure! So I had to interrupt her dance class so she could come help me vote. We got back in line at 5:40. At 6:40 PM, we voted to re-elect President Barack Obama. And I'm glad my kid got to experience that with me. And they all said AMEN! :-)

Discovery Green and The Quilt Festival

Today, we perused the International Quilt Festival at George R. Brown Convention Center and then walked across the street to Discovery Green. Really cool stuff but most of it had signs asking you not to take pictures. Oh well...lol

There just so happened to be a Korean Festival going on so that was pretty cool. Jaz played on the bouncer, got her face painted and then played on the playground. Then...it got really cloudy and I felt sprinkles. I told her we needed to get food so we could go do we then stood in ridiculously long lines.

She got the Gimbap and I got Kimchi Fries. Delicious!

Oh...we didn't know how delicious we were until we got back to the car. We almost ran since the rain was starting to pick up. As soon as she got in and I walked around to my side and got in? Thunderstorm. Not no regular storm. A Houston thunderstorm. So I told her we could just eat in the car until it passed. We finished eating. Still hadn't passed. LOL. Nevertheless...back home we came. Super fun day!!!!
