Fun Times in Houston

Here are some pictures from our fun extended weekend in Houston. We had a great time seeing all the family. Even some Alabama folks headed down to Tejas for a visit.

Top to bottom: 1) Chase and Preston in Chase's new tent 2) Chase and Preston seeing how cold the water is 3) Mimi and Chase on the merry-go-round 4) All the family at lunch 5) Preston after having been pushed in the pool by Wendi! 6) Preston being made to ride a stick horse around the restaurant for his birthday 7) Us and the Garrett's at the Houston Rodeo 8) Preston blowing out the candles on his b-day cake with his assistant, Chase 9) Chase having a good time in the back yard.

So in case you were wondering if people actually purchase and send out photo Easter cards this time of year...the answer is YES! This is what I come back to after being gone for only 4 days! (I think it's time for an office that does not also double as a guest bedroom....)

Welcome to the Family Pete!

So, my sister got married! We had a really fun wedding weekend...or I should say wedding week. The last few days have been filled with wedding festivities. We met lots of new people...mostly my new brother-in-law's family, ate lots of good food, had a shower, rehearsed, ate more food, etc. It was a good time. Pete's family from all over came to our small Texas town for the wedding celebration...and they probably experienced a little culture shock too! (They came from California, Alaska, Sweden, Africa, Arkansas, and many more places.) Here are a few photos to enjoy! (I don't have any of the actual ceremony because, well, I was in it...maybe I'll get some later from somewhere to show you.)

The other "man of the hour". I mean how cute is the tux!
