Scorpion in the Tub

Check out this nice scorpion Katie found in our bathtub the other night. We put the quater next to him to give you a sense of scale. We just love the Texas wildlife, don't you?

Kelsey in Texas Part 3

We also went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
Eating apples at Guadalupe River.
Ella demonstrates her sign language abilities at the Riverwalk. She was trying to do "I love you" with both hands but one of them turned into "hang loose".
And of course we had to stop so Katie could get some sparklers. $2.15 worth.

Kelsey in Texas Part 2 - That crazy girl

I really don't know where Kelsey got her theatrical goofiness. Nobody else in the family is goofy. . .
A nice self-potrait at Guadalupe River. Trying on hats at the 5-and-dime in Fredricksburg TX.
Talking with the animals at the Lyndon B. Johnson State Historical Farm.
Attempting to blend in with the local wildlife.

Kelsey in Texas Part 1

Kelsey came to visit us in San Antonio during the end of June and beginning of July 2006. You can see that the girls had a great time beading. Even Ella had her bead project. Katie taught Kelsey lots of good techniques.

I took Friday off from work and we went to the Guadalupe River State Park. We had a great time playing in the water. Ella loved wadding around at first but she didn't like floating the river too much because she fell in up to her ankles. Very serious.Kelsey got a little silly with the cheap Wal-Mart tube.
Guadalupe River State Park has this beautiful wall next to the river. There wasn't a lot of water due to the near drought conditions but that just made it more of a lazy river.

Obviously we were having fun while Kelsey kept an eye on Ella.

Cool off in Pismo

This is a nice picture when you are stuck in the summer heat.
Sunset on Pismo Beach CA.

I took this picture when Katie and I were there in 2004.

New Blog

Hello All,
Katie and I have been kicking around the idea of a blog for a while. So I decided to finally do it.

Here is a nice family picture from a trip to Chicago November 2005.
