Trip to Houston

We had lots of fun the last 2 weeks in Houston. Despite the insanely humid weather we had a blast. We went swimming, to the zoo, visited the beach, made bread and jam. My dad was so nice to give Mo and I a night away at a Marriott Hotel. It had a full kitchen with it! It was pretty cool. It also had a buffet breakfast that served waffles in the shape of Texas! While on our get away we went to an Astros game and lost miserably. Luckily they had great fireworks at the end. Then we headed out to the beach for some fun in the sun and a ferry ride. While on our ferry ride it started to pour rain real hard and we even watched as a funnel cloud formed close by. Since we got rained off the beach we headed over to Moody Gardens and visited the Rainforest Pyramid. It was so nice to get away for a while. Thanks mom and dad for the great time and letting us come.

I told you so

So it is Mo's job to take out the trash. Unfortunately sometimes it just doesn't get done often enough desipte my reminders. Here is the aftermath of what happens when you don't empty the diaper pal enough. Disaster strikes.

Let the Good Times Roll

Our friends the Tufts from North Carolina were visiting family in Idaho so we got together with the old clan. We went to Applebees for dinner and what a trip that was. We were almost out numbered by the children. Since our kids didn't come Mo and I were able to have a great dinner. Here's a picture of us we are missing a spouse and a couple of kids (who were busy running around!) Thanks for making time to get together.
