Super Guests

This last week has been so crazy busy that I didn't get a chance to blog about my sister and her family coming out to visit last weekend. For their spring break they flew out to San Antonio, then left for a Carnival Cruise out of Galveston, TX, and came back for a few days of touring San Antonio. It was great fun! Hopefully next time we'll be able to go on the cruise with them!

SusieQ still with her Mexican braids, with Hank and JJ on the trolley.

The children sitting on the exact cannon Davy Crockett used in the fight at the Alamo.

One day we went to a little amusement park in a town called Seguin. Here Brad, Reed, and JJ are racing to the top of the rock wall.

Even Tyler braved the rock wall!

Uh-oh. I'm afraid this picture could be used as evidence if the Amusement Park knew about it. You see, this is Brad and Hank racing down. You can see Hank lying down on the slide. He's not supposed to do that. At the end of the slide, Hank had a lot of momentum. Although Brad still won the race, Hank didn't actually stop when he got to the end of the slide. He kept going. Over the green carpet, and through the gate. In fact, he shattered the gate. The hinges were blasted to pieces. It was quite amazing to watch. And he was a little famous that day among all the workers.

Ty, Montana, and Hank get ready to go high up in the air and be dropped--over and over again. This was Ty's favorite ride. He loved the butterflies in his stomach.

SusieQ was just happy to bask in the sun. I guess it has been a pretty cloudy spring up in the Northwest.


  1. So fun to have family come and visit!

  2. Holy cow! Was that seriously Ty's favorite ride? That is one brave little boy. Looks like a fun visit. Wow, you and your sister look so much alike.

  3. What a cute sister you have. j/k
    We had such a great time with you guys, as always. Thanks for showing us around San Antonio. We loved it and WE LOVE YOU !!!!!!!!

  4. That looks like a fun amusement park! I'm surprised Ty liked the big dropping ride. Fun!

    I can hardly wait to come again---I PROMISE I will be a "super easy guest". Let's all do that cruise with Hank being the "Espanol" specialist. Love, MOM

  6. How fun is that?! And the sun looks divine. I am so glad we are getting some now.

    I miss you at the gym!

  7. Hank's face in the first photo ~ cracks me up. I'm laughing over the gate shattering as well. Susie Q was probably seriously LOW on vitamin D. But, the NW today is gorgeous!

  8. Looks like a fun time was had by all! I can't believe the Hank/slide story! I'm glad he wasn't hurt but I've gotta say, that must have been a sight to see!

  9. What a blast! O.K., Hank flying through the gate...made me laugh:0)

  10. Margaret must've been writing to SusieQ!! lol

    Hank shattered the gate???? Oh my gosh, that is just too funny!

    SusieQ looks pretty *hot* in that photo. ;)

  11. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I stumbled onto your blog and thought it was funny that you were at the Alamo and I am from Davy Crocket's home town.
