Our final stop in Texas was at Phil’s brother’s house in Odessa to visit with his family for a couple days. Aunt Lindsay did not mind at all to have to sit for a while and hold a snoozing smooch. Did not mind at all.

After our time in Corpus Christi it was back for a week at Phil’s parents house where the babies spent as much time as possible swimming. This is really the only way to enjoy being outdoors in Texas during these hot months, you just have to be in the water.

This week we also celebrated Lily’s 10th.


Summer Vacation – Austin Part II – ShipWrecked

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

It’s just a fact, big time talent runs in our family. Huge talent. So it was not a surprise when these 3 girls scripted, designed costumes and staged an entire 3…or was 4 part production of a new theatrical hit titled Shipwrecked. Refreshments were served during intermission. Luckily for all of you we got the whole thing on video!

Now, sit back and please enjoy the show!


Summer Vacation – Austin Part I

To quote Robert Louis Stevenson,

“To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.”

I’m not so sure he ever rode in a van sandwiched between a 2 and 3 year old for 10 hours. Arriving anywhere after that suddenly becomes the best thing that’s ever happened to you. Made even better by the people you get to see once you do finally make that arrival.

On Sunday July 15th we loaded up and drove to Texas. Our first week the babies and I spent with my family in Austin where I grew up, while Phil and some friends of his went down to the coast to once again hunt for sharks. No, they didn’t have any luck catching them, but the “journey” is the reward or something like that right?
