SeaWorld April 2011

This past weekend, we went to San Antonio to visit SeaWorld. We went with a few families from our life group at church. We stayed at the Wild Oak Ranch. It was such a neat place for young families!!
The boys have been very excited to go back and see the dolphins and shamu. They were especially excited to see the baby whale perform in the shamu show. He was so cute!!

We had such a great weekend with good friends. We are already planning to go back in a few months.

Spring Break 2011

For Spring Break we went with my parents back to Colorado. The boys love it there!!
The boys had there first adventure of driving 21 hours in the car. They did great!

We had a great week of making snowmen, playing in the snow, and skiing. Peyton has turned into a ski bum. He took one private lesson and was going up the ski lift with us and skiing greens. His instructor told us that he is ready for blues. It was so much fun skiing with him.

Brady lasted about 10 minutes in a private lesson. He like wearing all the gear, but did not like it when he was moving. He will try again next year.

We are already looking forward to going back next winter to ski again.

Peyton asleep. We saw a lot of this in the 21 hour drive

Colorado Trip 2011

January 1st we went to Steamboat Springs, CO with my family. It was AWESOME!! It was very cold and their was a ton of snow. This was the first time the boys had ever played in the snow. Peyton loved it right away. Brady was not really sold on it till later in the week.

It was a fun week of relaxing, sleigh ride, skiing, bowling, and some great family time. If you ask Peyton what his favorite think about Colorado is, he says Skiing!! He had so much fun and he cannot wait to go back. He is a natural skiier and he graduated to level 2. His instructor even taught him how to jump.

We can't wait to go back!!

Surprise 10 Year Anniversary Trip!!

Dwayne really surprised me for our 10 year Anniversary!! We went to Puerto Rico. I had no idea we were going until about 4 hours before our plane left. It was so much fun!! We slept in, read a lot, rented a car and drove around the island, ate good food, and sat on the beach. It can't get much better than that :)
