In preparation for this year's trip to Texas, Lily wrote a book called I Love Texas. Over the course of her six or seven visits, Lily has gone swimming in April, eaten at the famous Dixie Chicken, toured Kyle Field, and
|"I going to Texas. From Lily. We are at the airport."|
She jumped right into the action on the title page.
|"We're flying to Texas."|
I'm not sure what ocean she's flying over on her way
from Illinois to Texas, but I like her airplane drawing.
|"Picking up from school."|
Lily loves walking to pick Will and Hallie up
from school, especially on the day she arrives.
Left to right: Erin, Will, Lily, Hallie,
Grandma, and Tom. Obviously.
|"At the park."|
I think the illustrator had started to
lose focus by this point in the book...
|"I love Texas."|
Now if Lily could just bring her parents onboard her Texas love-boat, maybe they'd move here!
It should be noted that during her visit Lily willingly touched a lizard. She refused, on the other hand, to touch an adorable, fluffy chick. She also prefers weather in which she can wear "up sleeves" (short-sleeves). Perhaps Lily and Texas are a perfect match...
|She'd have preferred Grandma offer her a lizard.|
|This one loves the chicks. The lizards, not so much.|
