Houston Trip - Day 4

On the 4th day of our trip we drove up to Conroe, Texas to where my cousin & her family were renting a condo.

The kids went fishing off the balcony

but didn't catch anything

Then we went to play in the pool for a little while.

This was the kiddie pool and it was went from 6 inches to 2 feet in the middle.

Micah had a great time playing in it

Daddy & Levi swimming in the big pool

Micah playing with the bubbles

Cameron started jumping off the side of the kiddie pool...

I loved his face in this one

Miriam jumped some I told them to jump at the same time

We stopped at Burger King on our way back to Baton Rouge.

Just realized that I didn't get any pictures of me & my cousin...just too busy snapping pictures of the kids...such is life of a Mommytographerthe Mamarazzi!

Houston Trip - Day 2

We spent the weekend at my Uncle Randy & Aunt Pam's House. Micah really enjoyed climbing their stairs.
Can't you tell?
Part of the reason for going to Houston was to celebrate my MawMaw's 80th birthday...
We went to lunch near her nursing home and then we took the following pictures.

It's hard to get a good picture when you have...

5 kids under 6, multiple cameras, and a person with Alzheimers

Look...I actually got to be in some pictures...

Craig took the following:
Uncle Eric & Micah

C Bob



Then I got the camera back...
my Dad, MawMaw & Uncle Randy

My parents with MawMaw

After lunch, we went to McDonald's to get ice cream and to let the kids play...
b/c my aunt said my MawMaw enjoys watching children play
Micah shared an ice cream cone with Aunt Laura
Let me have a lick!

Cameron drinking some of Daddy's shake

Sad face

Mommy & Micah

Thanks Aunt Sara for capturing this one

Levi tickling Micah

oops...he was a little too rough!

Craig had to make a conference call while we were there
so he was on the other side of the window

We spent the rest of the day shopping...but not me...Craig!
He loves to shop for good deals...especially when he's in Houston.

Houston Trip - Day 1

I'm finally getting around to editing my pictures from our trip to Houston last weekend.

On Friday afternoon, we left for Houston to visit some of Craig's family and some of mine.

Since it was daylight, we stopped at the Texas Welcome Center. Here's Micah "stretching her legs" for a bit inside.

We have to take a picture in front of the BIG star when we can. Cameron was wondering who was going to take our picture and a gentleman volunteered.

The kids inside Texas

We went to Uncle Lee & Aunt Lauren's to swim

Then we ate supper: fried catfish, tater tots & green beans.

and watermelon and chocolate pie for dessert.

Tired after swimming

Group pic with Uncle Lee & Aunt Lauren...of course Bear had to get into the picture too!

On a different note, Lauren is 25 weeks pregnant and started bleeding on Monday evening. She has been admitted to Woman's Hospital of Houston for the foreseeable future. Her placenta is the problem and they're hoping that they can at least hold her off until 28 weeks. Please put her & Lee on your prayer list. They're having a little girl and they went through many fertility treatments to get pregnant.
