Texas or bust…

Spent a couple weeks in Texas to visit family…both sets of grandparents and lots of Aunts and Uncles.  An adventure it was.  I travelled with both kids solo since Byron was pretty sick, and he joined us a few days later.  I spent the first few days sick, then it was Miles turn, and Byron ended it sick again.  Even though on any given day somebody wasn’t feeling great, we still managed to have a wonderful time.  Payton was in heaven…she absolutely loved swimming and was spoiled rotten with attention.  Miles had a difficult time, no feeling well + stranger danger = whole trip spent glued to my hip.  Now if everyone in Texas would move on up to Seattle, that would make life so much easier!  =)  And it is not nearly as HOT here.  Phew, it was hot there.  Crazy hot.  Lots of pics of our visit:

About JulesJ

We have grown from a family of three to four! I am a full time wife and Mommy, and a part time Registered Nurse in a busy Medical Cardiac ICU. My hubby works at Microsoft...that is what brought us to Seattle. We have the most adorable little girl...born October of 2011. Plus we have a new little bundle of joy in our life, our little prince was born February of 2014. We live in Issaquah, WA, about 20 minutes east of Seattle...though we are true Texans at heart. I am just trying to capture those every day moments so we will have memories to last a lifetime.
