Vacation, vacation, vacation!

Hello! We are now back home after a two week vacation in Texas. It started out a couple of days with Joel's parents. Then Joel left for the week and I drove with the boys out to see my parents. When Joel got back we had a family reunion with his family. Then we went to the beach in Galveston for a couple of days. A last dinner and good bye with my parents and one more day in Houston and then we headed home.

We all had a great time. We got to spend lots of time with family. The boys spent a good amount of time in the water both at the beach and at family pools. They sure did like the beach but I think that both of them prefer the pool! They are becoming little fishes in the water. We also had plenty of wonderful food and fun. It was a lot of visiting and spending time together so we will just give you some highlights:
feeding ducks at church and seagulls at the beach
seeing a snake and frog in the pond at Uncle Ron's house
playing in the sand at the beach in Galveston
going crazy at the Children's Museum in Houston
going out to eat at various restaurants
participating in a family reunion at Uncle Mike's house
STAYING IN HOTELS- the boys love this!

Hope you enjoyed the pics! We have our 1-year post-placement visit this coming Tuesday. What a joy to show how great the boys are doing! The Lord has truly blessed this family beyond our imagination!

I love catching up with your family through your blog. The boys are so happy--it's so evident in all the photos. Plus I see all the smiles on the adult's faces as well! What a match made in Heaven!!! And by God for God's glory!
