Home Sweet Home

We took a trip to San Antonio this weekend. We had a good time, but I am so glad to be home. I am ready to sleep in my own bed. I took this pic when we drove up.

Tom & I took Michael & Jason with us. They are my cousins. Michael is a year older than Peyton and Jason a year younger. We have lived by each other most of their lives so the boys were more like brothers than cousins. I was always glad Peyton had them, since he was an only child.
Here is a picture of Michael & Jason. Michael (on the right) was one of the valedictorians of his Senior class this year. In his speech, he thanked Jesus Christ for giving up His life for us. He got quite a bit of applause for that. I am so proud of him.

We went to Sea World. Love watching the killer whales. They are amazing animals.

We ate some good Mexican food, strolled the River Walk, saw the Alamo and went to the outlet mall on the way home. I don't think outlet malls are all they are cracked up to be, not what I would call "outlet prices"
We encountered some interesting people in the quickie mart while standing in line for the bathroom. I'm not going to tell about it here because it was literally, "bathroom humor". We laughed alot, mostly at my husband. As I have mentioned before he is very funny. He is also my hero. He manuevered the road through Dallas like a pro. The busiest traffic he has ever driven in was Little Rock. Dallas was like.................Little Rock on crack. I am sure he would tell you that his hero of the trip was......................Garmin!! Love that thing, we used it for the first time for this trip. Michael & Jason asked what people did before they had Garmin. People used maps?
All in all a good trip, but I am thinking beach next year.
