Galveston June 2010

Before we had kids, we loved to just pack our bags and take a short trip. Well, we are trying to get back into that now with kids. Sunday during the kids nap, we decided to pack up and go to Galveston. An hour after we even thought about it, we were in the car headed South!

We stayed at an awesome hotel, went to a nice dinner, walked the beach at night, and went swimming in the hotel pool at 10pm at night. The kids slept great in the hotel room, especially since they were up late swimming.

The next morning we sat around the hotel. We then packed our bags, checked out, and headed to the beach. It was a lot more crowded than we were expecting. The locals said that the beach has been really crowded since the oil spill. Everyone is going to Galveston.

We went to a private beach and had a BLAST!!! Peyton acted like he had been going to a beach for years. He loved the sand and was jumping the waves. Brady was not as sure about the beach. He liked the dry sand, but he did not like walking in the water. If you held him, he loved jumping the waves and getting all wet. Overall, I was pretty impressed with them and their first trip to the beach.

We have decided to make more spontaneous trips like this. The kids loved it and it makes them learn to be flexible!!

Wow It's Really June!!

We are still here. A lot has happened since I posted in April. We lived with my parents for about 5 weeks, which the boys loved all the attention. We closed on our new house the end of April. We have been here about 7 weeks and are loving it. We have awesome neighbors. All the kids in our cul-de-sac are Peyton and Brady's age. We are outside every evening riding bikes and playing baseball. Of course we live one street away from my sister and her family. Peyton and Brady are loving just being able to walk over to Addy's house.

We are pretty well settled. This past Saturday was the first Saturday that we have had in months with nothing to do. We finally feel things are back to normal.

I am loving my new office. My business is going really well. I am looking for it to grow in the near future!!!

This summer we are not too busy. We are going to Oregon in about a week to visit Dwayne's family for a weekend. The rest of the summer will be pretty open to lots of pool time and maybe even the beach. We are already reaching temps in the upper 90s with a heat index of 107 degrees. We are pretty much living in bathing suits!!!

We just booked our first big family trip to Disney World for the end of September. We are SO excited.

Here are some pictures of our house and the boys!!
