Summer Happenings!

Okay, Erica brought to me attention last night that I need to update my blog so she has something to read at work Monday....Time got the best of me, its not like I have anything else to do, haha:) Well I do have many pictures of my two cute kids I would love to share. A few weeks ago Brandon and I were both on vacation from work so we had a week to do as we pleased. We went to Sea World with my Erica, Frankie, Frankie's mom Margaret, his niece Abigail, and our brother Travis. It was so so HOT! But we had fun and made memories which was most important. We were at the water park for the majority of the day. Once we ventured from the water park we were on our way to the cold Penguin House. On the way there we were passing the roller coaster "The Steel Eel" Erica wanted to ride so we stopped and I got the crazy idea to ride to....Frankie and his Mom offered to watch the kids, so off we all went, Brandon, Travis, Erica, and I. We didn't have to wait very long in line so I didn't really have much time to get nervous, so we're going up the first and tallest mountain thingy, and Brandon and I are looking around to see if we can see our kids down under waiting for us, all of a sudden Brandon says, "Hold on, here it goes!" I had no idea what I had gotten myself into! Down we went, me bottom was out of the chair, I felt as if I was free falling, the wind so so hard in my face I couldn't breathe! The whole ride I clenched my eyes shut and held on for dear life! As the ride ended, a whole three minutes that felt like and hour, I was shaking, and all I could tell Brandon was never again, LOL! So Erica, seems a little shaken, Travis a little more shaken, and Brandon wanting to go again! We walked down to look at our picture the park takes, and it was hilarious, we totally should have bought one, but I needed to sit down in cold air and compose myself. The picture is permanently implanted in my brain:) So that was the biggest excitement of this Sea World Trip. Savanna got to see Shamu, or "Mu" as she would say!

We also went out to Lake Travis for one of our vacation days. A few of our friends went out with us. We grilled, swam, read magazines, swatted flies, ran after cans and bags of chips blowing away in the extremely high wind, lol! Rylan had a great time looking for shells and shiny rocks, he has his good friend Jordan there to. Savanna spent a couple hours just bringing me buckets of water. The day was good but ended abruptly when Rylan got hit in the head with a rock and looked like he was bleeding to death, thankfully once we got him cleaned up it was just a cut about and centimeter long on his hairline above his forehead that just bled like crazy for a few minutes. The last time he got hurt at the lake was when he was three years old, at this exact same park, he fell and busted his chin open...So I think next time we go to the lake we'll pick a different park.

Of course everyday of our mini-vacay we went swimming, after all, that's really all you can do when everyday the weather is 105 degrees.
