Zilker Trail of Lights

Hudson and his best buddy, Mathew, got to ride the Ferris wheel while going to see the Zilker Park Christmas Tree and the Trail of Lights. Beautiful night to be out for a walk, and great view of downtown.

Wright, Hudson Wright

We visited the aviation museum in Uvalde, Texas, yesterday. Hudson got to be James Bond by sitting in the Bede 5 Acrostar jet as seen in the opening scene of Octopussy. 


Here's the scene:

Walking with Dinosaurs!

Pretty amazing "live-action" dinosaur show and educational too. Not quite life size, but pretty close. Hudson quickly figured out there were people controlling them which made it way less scary, although we both jumped two or three times. :) 


Roar!!!

Got our dinosaur face paint on and ready to see Walking with Dinosaurs - An Arena Adventure.

Bee Cave Allstar Award

Hudson was presented with a Character Counts Award today for being an excellent role model. 

Bee Cave Elementary includes character in their curriculum- Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. 

Of course when we asked Hudson why his teacher gave it to him, he responded, "I don't know. I'm not really sure how it even got in my backpack." We'll be following up with the teacher for details, but he has been getting great marks lately on his daily character color ratings. :)

Riding the school bus

This afternoon was Hudson's first time riding the bus home from school. As you can see from his expression, he loved it.

Proud boy.

Isn't she adorable?

Ms. Williams is new to our district but an experienced kindergarten teacher. Hudson was jumping out of his skin with excitement tonight when he met her! I predict great things!

Mastering the Selfie

Hudson decided he needed to take a selfie with the waterfall in the background. He spent several minutes making sure he had just the right angle to get the falls in the photo. :)

The Maple Glade Trail

Beautiful hike in the Quinault Rainforest in Olympic National Park. Big Leaf Maples (leaves 8-12" across) covered in moss, surrounded by Red Cedars and Sitka Spruce.

Fun at Ruby Beach

Fun in the hot tub with Mommy.

Cutest thing ever

We got Hudson a coqui frog, the national frog of Puerto Rico, to go with his red eyed tree frog, the national frog of Costa Rica. He came right in to the condo and introduced them - hi, I'm coqui frog! What's your name?

1st Snorkeling Adventure

Our little adventurer did a fantastic job on his first try at snorkeling.

We kayaked out to the little island in the background of the top photo, tied up to a buoy, and hopped in. (Lower right pic is looking back at the beach where we started. )

Hudson breathed through the snorkel as if he had been doing it forever.

Only issue was that Kendra had told him not to try to talk or water would get in, which was quickly followed by "Fishies!!!" underwater from Hudson every 30 seconds. The water didn't seem to bother him though. :)

First Rangers Game

Truman, Aunt Tracy, and Uncle Scott took Hudson to his first big league baseball game. (Texas Rangers v. Miami Marlins)

When the stadium manager (that Uncle Scott introduced us to) learned it was Hudson's first game, he ran back in the office and brought out two baseballs used at batting practice for Hudson and Truman.

$1 hot dog night, a pretzel, chocolate ice cream, a real ball, dancing to the walk-up songs, Yu Darvish pitching and a 6-0 win - now that's a pretty great 1st game. Thanks Uncle Scott, Aunt Tracy and Truman!

Pre-School Graduation

Hard to believe, but Hudson is now officially a kindergartener. They had a
very nice little ceremony at his preschool. Hudson was so excited and had
huge hugs for Mrs. Amy and Mrs. Anjun, his two teachers.

Fwd: Providing a service

It's always funny what you will hear on the ride to school...

Marie just got back from a Band trip to the beach so Hudson had asked her
to ride in the back next to him this morning since he hadn't seen her in 4
days.

Hudson takes off his shoe and is holding it in his hand for a few minutes.

I then hear Hudson say, "Marie, if you ever need to smell a shoe just let
me know. I've got one right here." As he extends the shoe toward Marie's
face.

Marie - "No, thank you. I'm good."

Hudson - "You sure? It's right here."

Marie - "Thank you, no."

Hudson - "Ok." And proceeds to put his shoe back on.

Marie and I couldn't stop laughing which then prompted Hudson to have a
devilish grin and say "what's so funny guy? what's funny?"

Always looking for the laugh. :)

(Obviously not the picture from the moment, but Hudson was happy to give me
a shoe shot)
