Timothy and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend on Galveston Island. We went to Moody Gardens to visit the Rain Forest Exhibit, the Aquarium and the IMax. We got to see a ton of parrots, sharks, and our favorite- PENGUINS! We also got to see the Gulf of Mexico! We had so much fun, we really didn’t want to leave.

One reason we went to Galveston was for some R&R.  So we stayed at a beautiful B&B. We really enjoyed our stay at Avenue O. Connie, the owner was so nice and made an awesome breakfast. It was better than any restaurant.  Not only that, but the rooms are amazing! We stayed in the Rain forest room that had a very cool jacuzzi and a super comfy bed! Check out their website for more info, we highly recommend Avenue O B&B.  http://www.avenueo.com/

Last night we made two new videos! Enjoy!

We just wanted to say “HI!” and show off our mad High Fiving Skills!

We had a lot of fun making this video and may make more! (Whether you like it or not!)

*No animals were harmed in making this video.

**This was inspired by Randy and Bonnie Mann’s 4th of July video!

Summer is half way over. Well at least summer break is. 😦  You would not believe how many days have been in the 100s here!!! There have even been some record setting days! Thank goodness for AC!

Summer has consisted of basically 1 thing for me, work and for Tim it has been school and work. Luckily, Timothy is now officially done with work (being a TA) for the summer! TAMU is so good to us, that they are paying him for the rest of the summer! God is good!

Big Bend was our major vacation this summer, but we do have a couple of other things planned. First, I won tickets from the radio for a water park here in TX, but I am trading them with my friend, who won tickets to Moody Gardens in Galveston (see link below). I have a feeling that I will be calling in sick soon and the only cure will be a trip to Moody Gardens. http://www.moodygardens.com/

Then, in August my best friend Crystal Harris (Maid of Honor) will be in TX for a few days! I’m very excited about that! I hope to have a lot of fun with her. We may also have some other guests this summer. J  

Other than that not much is going on. Just lots of cleaning projects, sweating and work.  

Also, can people please send me birthday/anniversary dates… I have missed several peoples birthdays these past two years. Thanks!

PS- My 24th Bday is July 31! 🙂
