We drove down to Texas last week to visit my parents and family! It was a very long drive (about 20 hours), but it was worth it! We had a great time with the family, and the weather was fantastic! The temperature when we left Minnesota was -9, and when we arrived in Texas it was about 80! The daytime highs ranged from 60 to 88, and the nights were cooler at about 30. One night, a cold front blew in, and the wind blew so hard all night that I could hardly sleep. But, it made for some good fishing weather the next day, and everyone caught some fish (except for me). The kids loved all of the sunshine and fresh air, and they were outside most of the day, every day. Some of us came back sporting a Texas tan, and others of us...just a sunburn. We all had a great time, and made many memories!

Cowgirl Christy enjoying the wild West Texas wind!

Holding hands by the duck pond...

Sam was surprised and delighted by all of the fun toys in the garage!

Who can resist that smile?!

The only incident of "road rage" we experienced was in the garage! ;-)

Doesn't Becca make the "Mud Warrior" look cute?

The 4-Wheeler was a hit!

Sam preferred the larger bouncers over the toddler-sized ones.

He did pretty good at staying on his feet!

Christy loved the Jumping Party!

Isn't Sam cute in his hunting hat?

Christy enjoyed spending time with her Grandpa!

On the last day of our trip, we were blessed by a glorious West Texas sunset!
