Summer 2011

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Well, we are back from vacation.  And I have never been more happy to see my bathtub in all my life.  And my air conditioner.  And my washing machine for that matter.  We've spent the past few days in a post vacation haze, lots of staring and milling around and sleeping late and doing nothing.  I love summer.  Really, I do.  I love the heat and the swimming and the traveling and the lazy days, but I always know I'm about ready to wrap it up when the temperature reaches a point where you swear you see satan putting on sunscreen or I catch my children standing in front of the open fridge not to get food, but to cool off.  When I'm okay with my husband's arctic 68 degrees thermostat setting, I'm done.    We had a great vacation to our family's ranch and to the (dry) Frio River, but I could have done without the 120degree heat.  you laugh?  that was the heat index in the parking lot.  The fact that there was no hot water did not bother me in the slightest. 

Anyhooo, now that I am but I did want to share some of the fun things that we have done this summer.  While we have not crossed everything off of our summer bucket list, we have had a great summer!
Here's what we've done so far..... 

We've seen the dolphins at the aquarium!

We got to hold a baby goat!

And asked 597 times if we could have one!

We spent 4th of July with our best friends!

We suprised our Nana on her 80th birthday!

And got to spend time with family!

We love our cousins!

Watching the fireworks with Daddy!

I think these faces are priceless!

We got to dip our feet into some pretty cool fountains!

We melted mommies heart just a little more!

We got to swim in all kinds of places!

We played football with Jay Novacek from the Dallas Cowboys!!

We had a picnic on the Medina River.

We swung from a rope swing into the Frio!!

We rode in the back of the truck and spotted some great wildlife on the ranch!!

Best of all...  we did it all together!

Don’t you just love riding at the back of the truck and enjoying the great views at the ranch? My family does this almost always. We are all addicted to visiting the ranch because of its vast hectares and the fun activities we enjoy the whole weekend. I am working on my tennis skills, so I spend most of my time now at the tennis court with my sons. While my wife and daughter go hiking on the trail.
