If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Apparently "We have Flava"- A Culturally Enlightening Evening

For months I have been wanting to try out Houston's food truck park.  A friend went there last fall, shared her pics, and I was sold.  Well last night we had nothing on the schedule and decided to make my dream a reality. :)

One of the best part of living in Houston is that there are always really fun cultural things to do.  The worst part is that traffic makes getting there a nightmare!  Last night was no exception.  It took us an hour to get to 610 which might have put me in a bit of a bad mood.  I am glad we pressed on though.

After looking at the options, we settled for the Waffle Bus.   One of our other truck options was a hamburger on a donut with a fried egg on top.  Hmm.

Warning!!!!- I may have dressed my girls a little funky for this experience.    
Bigger Warning!!!! - We weren't the worst dressed people there. 

We were in for quite the surprise when a rap video was being filmed on the premises.  Apparently, a key wardrobe malfunction  component was rapping while wearing your pants at your mid-thigh.  The lyrics were less than uplifting and I told Jack that he was witnessing where kids end up who cuss and act disrespectful in the 5th grade.  I think he bought it for now. :)

Maggie fit right in.

And I had to snap a few pics around the graffiti.  I told Sam to think of the prettiest girl in his class for this one.  I wonder who he was thinking of.

More pics for dad's office.  I mean don't Easter bunnies go with graffiti, rainbow shoes, and hip hop hats for you?

We actually stayed longer than I expected because we met another group with kids and they all started playing with the styrofoam airplane and bubbles that I threw in my car at the last minute.

Funniest moment of the night- Trent and I were invited to be in the 1/2 dressed rap video.  Our line, "we got flava".  Apparently that means that we have style.  Good to know.  Now I can't help but wonder if it is going to end up on Youtube.
