Vacation Fun

Usually on summer vacation, the kids and I head out for a road trip. We've been to all the contiguous 48 states, seen may of the national parks, and loads and loads of sights. This summer, we decided that it would be too much money for an extensive road trip (gas prices, anyone?). Jerry usually never gets to go with us on our trips, so we decided to just do family this year. I am fine with that. No really, I am. But next summer, watch out cause  I'll be back on the road again! I'm thinking Niagra Falls...

However, until then, I am content with central Texas.

We visited with Great-grandmother at her house on the lake and the boys went exploring.
All those weeds used to be under water. Cedar Creek Lake is about 8 feet low this summer. It made for some fun adventures for the boys and some cool pictures. But rain is desperately needed for the area right now.

 Then Grandmother arrived and after the kids attacked her with hugs and kisses, I made them sit still long enough for a picture.

Cute, aren't they?

Jerry, Grandmother, and Trina went on the 22 mile kayak race Saturday. Trina gave up about 1/2 way through and Grandmother wouldn't leave her, so she also didn't finish. Jerry finally finished after about 8 house on the river. Better them than me I say. Certainly not in 100 degree Texas heat!

The kids were wore out that night and Jamie didn't make it through movie night.

 He fell asleep on Grandmother. I know she hated the hardship, too  :)
Aren't grandmothers great?

Up next, Jerry and I had some time alone together and guess what we did?

Took in a Rangers game, of course!

I couldn't visit Texas without going to see my boys!

 And here's my current favorite, Josh Hamilton, swinging away!
 Go, Josh, go!

 Congratulations, Michael, on your 2,000th hit!

 And they won. WooHoo!!

I absolutely LOVE these lights. I want them right outside my front door.

I'll settle for season tickets to the Rangers. Get on it, Jerry!
