April 2013


Dear Collin,

We really enjoyed having Flat Collin visit us in Dallas, Texas. We saw a lot of the local sights, like the Los Colinas mustangs and the UD bell tower, but Flat Collin also helped Aunt Connie in lab. He ate at Big State Drug store’s lunch counter with Aunt Connie (one of her favorite places). He visited the University of Dallas with Uncle Bill, and went to look at bluebonnets. He watched

Dallas with Aunt Connie and Uncle Bill, and got a cowboy hat like they wore in the show. He looked at Aunt Connie’s mardi gras masks and decided to make one of his own. One night, Cousin Emily and Cousin Jak came over to have dinner. Jak, who is originally from Thailand, showed Flat Collin how to eat with chopsticks. Emily and Collin read Harry Potter.

We enjoyed having Flat Collin for a visit!

Love, Aunt Connie and Uncle Bill
