tim and i were blessed this spring break to have my sister and dad here with us. we had a great time both relaxing and catching up.
friday we made the journey to arkansas to visit family. we were able to meet our new baby cousin, briley for the first time. she is uber cute! at one point 11 of us were sleeping at betty and tim's. that's not including briley and the snake. that's right, we had a visitor....a garden snake. this nearly gave tabi a heart attack. thankfully preston and mike were able to get rid of it. although i am not afraid of snakes, i was also glad to see it go.
we spent friday - sunday with family, late sunday evening we made our way back to texas. monday tabi and i had some quality sister time. we slept in, went shopping, out to lunch, and had just enough time to grab a starbucks. while we were out, tim and dad spend the day golfing. fun. that night, i was able to introduce tabi and dad to texas spring softball. tim had a game and it gave me the opportunity to introduce my family to some of my texas family members. they were both really happy to see that tim and i have found a great group of friends. (tim did hit his first home run of the season! first of many i hope.)
tuesday we woke up to a gray sky...we knew it was going to be a messy day. it rained all day. most of our area was under a flash flood warning! there was a ton of rain, with really no place to go. we made the most of the rainy day and we went to the cinema! tabs and i saw horton hears a who, and dad and tim say vantage point. we both enjoyed our separate movies. steve and jim make me laugh, so i really had a lol day!
their trip came to a close with a visit to uncle julio's, our favorite mexican place.
we're so glad that they could come. we love and miss our family so much. we can't wait for some more family to come and visit!
