Day 517 - Oct 28, 2009

Kevin finally went and did something fun today! We have been asking him every day and we finally hit paydirt!

So today we went up the Tower of Americas. It was pretty cool and we had a really good time. It was even better because nobody else was up there with us. It had been kinda overcast so I imagine people didn't want to go on a gray day. We did though, and man - was it windy up there! We don't have one clear picture of any of us without our hair all over the place. Here's the proof:

This one is Moe and Kevin:

And obviously this is Kevin and I:

And I just had to share this one because Kev looks like the Joker from the Batman movies, lol:

You would not believe how windy it was up there!

And I guess Kevin is starting a collection of shot glasses. He bought one today and he bought one last week at The Hard Rock. And the last time we were here in Texas he got one at The Alamo, so it looks like I have a collector on my hands, lol. That's okay though - these things are relatively cheap and they are nice and small so they won't take up a whole bunch of space in the suitcase. It's just kinda a weird thing to collect as he doesn't even drink...

And that's about it for today. I am hoping to get him to the wax museum tomorrow as Moe has to leave on Friday morning (already?!! :-( ). They both want to go so maybe he will feel up to it!

Leslie - if I had something to send to Kevin (say a STEELERS shot glass) - where should I send it?

I was thinking the same thing? Can we get him some shot glasses.....just for him to know that he has friends from all over or would that be overwhelming for him,.....and you?

Great photos! Glad you all had a good time.

I think you started something. I thought the same thing about sending a shot glass to Kevin and respect your response to outside gifts.

I would love to send a few from the Atlanta area.
Let us all know if sending them to Fla. would work.

Big surprise for Kevin to find so many small packages from all who care about him from all over the USA and the world. Would a small picture of the one with the glass and a discription of where you got it help Kevin in any way, shape or form?

Let us know if you will need some shot glass display holders to hang on the walls.

What a fun collectible. I used to get one from every place I could when I was driving the 18-wheeler. Would come back with anywhere from 8 to 12 each trip.

Kevin is building new memories with each glass he buys.

Towers of America is amazing isn't it?! I remember going up there after graduating from basic training... Just that whole area down there, especially the river walk just make it nice in Texas... but other than that... I could care less for that state, haha
