The other day Little Einstein asked if Round Top was still "going on" and if so would I take him out to look around. I told him it was and we made plans, then I asked what he was looking for. His answer was, "What do you look for? I think I'll know it when I see it mom." That was a good enough answer for me, but then again him asking to go out was good enough for me.
At one of our first stops he completely stopped in his tracks at a dealer with tons of Pennants and asked if she had a Harvard one. Which she did, several actually and one was leather (and very expensive, but really really neat). Littel Einstein loved the leather one and after seeing it, he wanted it (he wants to go to Harvard).
While ooooohhhhhhhing over the leather Harvard pennant Little Einstein caught a glimpse of a case of Astros memorabilia and in a spilt second Harvard was out of the picture. Astros take precedents over anything. Little Einstein loves baseball and more importantly he loves the Astros. When we were about to leave this dealer, he said, "Mom, it's just so hard to walk away."

Little Einstein's big purchases for the day: two pocket knifes, a crystal, and two old books. Plus a 1993 Astros Pennant, this was when the Astros switched uniforms and retired the "rainbow" look and introduced the midnight blue and metallic gold, it was the first time orange was not a part of the teams colors.
His total purchases came to $44
On the way home Little Einstein said, "Mom I had the best time with you today, I can't wait till fall to come back again."
He melts my heart.
This is a picture from the other day on a trip to Round Top with a friend of mine LaNae (on left) and me (right). We are in front of Royers.
Happy Easter everyone.
