Before we leave on our adventure to Mexico! Early in the morning!
The girls!  Sherry your family is so wonderful!  Thank you for an incredible day!
Cowgirl Lydia!  She is so cute!
Yummy corn!

These people kept giving us samples!
Sherry and me!
Lunch time!  Can't wait for tacos!
Hot peppers!
Feeling the BURN!
Yummy!  They had every fruit or nut flavor plus many other flavors. It was hard to choose which one to try.  Thank goodness everyone was so willing to share.  I got to try so many of the different flavors.
Hey!  There was this tall and good looking tourist.  You know the good looking one.  The tall one.  (This is for you Kate!)
He was having a hard time deciding which one to try too.
Thanks Matt for being such a good sport in the car!  Sorry we gave you such a hard time! 
Your like the big brother I never had.  Only if you are only 5 days older!   Thanks again.

Girls after SHOPPING!  taking a much needed break.

Dinner!  I'm ready to go back for more!
We had a great day in Mexico.  Good friends, good times and good food!  Life doesn't get much better than that.  I have enjoyed moving to Texas and the wonderful friends I have made.  I am making the most of my time here and enjoying every moment.  And making memories that I will always cherish.

Enjoying the sun and spending time together!  And working on getting a bit of a tan.

We went away to Corpus Christi for Valentine's weekend.  It was wonderful!  We left on Friday and got to do some sightseeing and then a nice dinner.  Then Saturday we headed out to the beach.  What a great day?  It was in the 80's with a light breeze.  Ralph and I love the water it is very calming and relaxing for us both.  And it reminds us of home.  Then back to the hotel to get ready for a romantic dinner for two.  I can't think of a better way to spend Valentine's day! Than with the one you love!

Valentine's Weekend in Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi welcomes Christie! I have always wanted to visit this town because of its name. Great name!
Our Hotel.
The pool.   We actually used it too.
The view from our balcony. 
On the USS Lexington.
Itty bitty living space.  One of my nephews is on tour on a ship right now so this made me think of him.  Miss you Joey!
Painting gear on board!  Love you Joey!
On the flight deck.

Just some fun pictures of the things we did while visiting Corpus Christi.  Had a wonderful time!

1 years old! Happy Birthday Lucas! Love you Auntie and Uncle!

We loved you from the start.
So small and precious.
The first time I got to hold you.
Little feet!
He's already got some attitude.  I wonder where he gets that from.  It comes honestly it runs in the family.

I just wanted to share some of the many pictures I have taken of my nephew over the year.  We have missed so much by being away for the last few months.  He is now walking and running all over.  Wish we could have celebrated your birthday with you!  I hope you know how much we love and miss you.  We will see you this summer.  Try not to grow too much!
