We went with Will to Galveston a few days ago. He was finishing up a conference and we waited for him at the beach (he was done about 12:30). We had a good time - well, the kids had a blast all the while mama worried about waves carrying them off!
The boys first ocean experience. Right after this a huge wave came, knocked Jack over and started to drag him out to sea. Katie was holding Jay in one hand and grabbed Jack by his shirt in the other and drug him, spitting and coughing, to shore. Jack spent the rest of the time worrying that the ocean was going to "carry dem off!!" (Bella and Card..)
Jay was not too sure about this whole water thing
Katie and Card had the best time chasing each other and throwing and at one another
Bella just being Bella
They did this for hours
Jaybird playing with his first beach sand
We had to pose for pictures of course - and Katie complained of the sand in her hair... after playing sand fight for hours with Card...
Sorry - I just could not choose- they are all so cute
Jack really wanted me to take this picture of him on this rock
I dont know why Jay looks like he is holding on in a windstorm
So they would sit in the water until a big wave came and then they would all run like their lives depended on it - really worrying Jack that the ocean was going to "carry dem away!!"
Jaybird chased this pigeon for a LONG time - it would never leave, just lead him around in circles.
So we went on a road trip this last weekend. Totally my doing :)
We went so I could go listen to Beverly Bradley and decided to make a few pit stops on the way.
First we got up early Friday, made breakfast and lunch to go and got on the road. First stop (besides tt breaks that is) was The Alamo in SA, we ate our lunch in a lovely pay to park lot :) and got right on over to visit Davy Crockett's last place of residence. They all had a great time and, while I did not get many pictures (I had a pounding headache from ingesting some form of gluten at some point) - I did get this one of Jack....
Then it was off to the seminar for me (in SA) and Will and the kids went to our good friends the Watje's in New Braunfels. I rode home from the seminar with Mrs. Watje and we spent the night with them. The next morning it was up, a quick breakfast at the Watje's house (they were already gone) and off to Austin to visit Will's parents for a bit. We had a wonderful lunch with them and took this adorable picture of the Lil Mom-Mom and the Great-Grand kids (and the one big grand kid too).
then off to SA again to drop me off at the seminar for that night. Back with Mrs. Watje to her house and spent another night. Up the next morning and they cooked us a wonderful breakfast and we were on our way..
We knew it was time to stop and have our lunch when we saw Jay trying to ingest his feet....
so we stopped at a roadside picnic place and had some leftover subs, kale chips, almond dip and apples. Back on the road and home to the animals!
