Earlier today Timothy sent me a message saying he wanted to have a picnic at the beach for dinner.  I made a salad and packed some hummus and crackers. Once Timothy got home from work, we were off to Hof Carmel. The beach is only a 20 minute bus ride away, which is really nice. Once we got to the beach we sat on a grassy outdoor auditorium where we had a perfect view of the water and the sun setting.

The food was good, the company was great, and the view was beautiful.

Israel definitely has its perks.

As always, time just goes by way to quickly. I hope to do a better job posting in 2011! (So I started this post back in January… I’m sorry for being such a slacker!!!)

So here is what you missed!

November 2010!

School, School, THANKSGIVING!, and School! Tim and I were lucky enough to travel to Virginia for Thanksgiving with the Mann family! Mom, Dad, Jon, Ruolin, Cara and Christopher were all there too! We had a great time and even got to squeeze in our Christmas painting and also celebrate Dad’s birthday.

December 2010!

School, Finals, A trip to the Valley, School, and Christmas Break! Tim and I decided to stay in Texas this year. It looks like 2011 will have a ton of traveling, so we thought it would be best to have our First Christmas in Texas. My mom (Dee Ramirez) decided to join us this year. It was nice to have family with us. Thanks to technology we were able to Skype with the Mann Family (including Grandparents and even two aunts and an uncle!). For New Years, we went to San Antonio to visit the Cardonas (Great Friends of the Ramirez Family!). It was a great way to spend New Years.

2011!

January/February 2011

Somehow, January and February blurred into one and now we are in March.

Tim was accepted to an National Science Foundation program in Korea, where he will be researching for 8 weeks.

For Spring Break Tim and I went to Galveston for two days. We stayed at the Avenue O Bed and Breakfast, enjoyed the gulf breeze and nice scenery. Then on the way home we stopped at NASA! Unfortunately it was a short stay and break went by too quickly.

I’ll post picture soon! 🙂

Tim and I had a great 3 year wedding anniversary! We had a week long celebration that included: Aggie Baseball, several nights out to the movies, a romantic dinner, special desserts, and a trip to the zoo! 🙂

We are excited to see where the next 30 years takes us!

I also had a good first week as a full time graduate student!

We hope you all are doing well and that you have a great summer!!!

Take care, Laura

Travel: On Sunday we began our journey. Tim’s flight left without a hitch to Richmond, but my flights were not so lucky. My flight to DC (then Syracuse) was cancelled. After trying to figure out how to get home the ticket lady was able to book me on a flight to Charlotte, NC- then to Richmond, VA, then to Philly then to Syracuse!

When I got to Richmond, my flight to Philly was delayed, then cancelled. Luckily, Jon had gotten to the airport to pick up Tim a few mins before. I was unable to get a flight until Christmas Eve to NY. Thankfully I was in Richmond and was able to go to the Mann’s house. Later that night I was then able to get a flight for Tuesday! So, now I’m finally home.

I had a really good time in VA with the Mann’s! And now I’m having a good time with my family. Now hopefully going home will be a little easier.

I hope you are having a great holiday with your families!

Take care, Laura

I (Laura) have been fully admitted to TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY as a Graduate student!!!!! It was official yesterday!
