St. Patrick's Day

We just got back from a great family vacation to San Antonio. We all spent the weekend together, and then Nathan worked a couple of days and I played with the kids. Yesterday V found her version of a 4-leaf clover while we were visiting the bridge in Waco. You know, the old bridge. Waco is also the home of Dr. Pepper, so we went to that museum, too. No cool I'm a Pepper shirts, unfortunately. They had them, but only in white which is not what I wanted.
Here's E at the Witte Museum in San Antonio. It has a cool science tree house, plus a real tree house outside. M's favorite part was a huge floor area with lights. Select your game via computer, and the lights play with you. He played a dodge ball game many times. A light ball moved randomly around the board and he had to get away. If he dodged it long enough, 2 balls started going. Fun!
We met up with some family members and went to a state park. On our hike, we discovered the large remains of a dead tree. E is a super-great hiker. Her big sister, not so much.
Here we are on a river boat tour! The kids had a great time, and the weather was absolutely perfect.
Remember the Alamo! They have employees that memorize something like 30 minutes worth of information about the battle of the Alamo, and they recite it in the beautiful grounds outside. Pretty sweet job. Oh, and we're expecting a baby in September.

Fun trip! Very cute dress E is wearing at the science museum(I think?). Congrats on the new addition coming too!

Thanks, gals! The dress? You must mean the camo spider dress. It's the only one E is actually pleased about that isn't pink, since it has spiders.

I love that little spider dress!! I'd love to get together when I'm finally in Texas again (I move back to Denton this coming Labor Day weekend). I haven't seen you since I moved our junior year!
