This past weekend we took a family vacation to SeaWorld! (actually, it was a trip to San Antonio, but we always spend most of our time at SeaWorld!)
The kids have a love/hate relationship with swimming. They love splashparks, just not deep water. This was one of the better moments!
Jon took Sevy on the Atlantis ride! I was so excited she was big enough to go. It's pretty intense (big drop off and giant splash) and I'm so proud of her for going!
Randomly we were there for Christian weekend, so we watched the Veggie Tale movie "Pistachio" and saw Larry and Bob in person!
Our hotel had a rockin' pool area, which we hung out at a lot!
Teik really loved the little waterfall at the outdoor pool. They even had a bunch of kid-friendly pool area!
On our way to see "Believe" which is the Shamu show. Kind of lame now that the trainers aren't getting in the water. There was a baby killer whale that was too cute. That made up for the disappointment in the show. (I really have no problems with them not getting in, but they could have done the show better.)
Jon and the kiddos at the waterpark.
Teik getting up-close and personal with the camera.
Sevy and I in line for the Shamu ride.
Teikers at the Alamo. It was closed, but they light it up awesomely at night!
Sevy at the zoo in front of the kimodo(?) dragon habitat.
Kris and a bird getting a little intimate!
The Kristian's.
Sevy and the bugs!
My little munchkin's!

Yeah, the pictures are in reverse, but it really was a fantastic weekend to get away! The kids had a blast and it was fun to see Kris briefly (he was in Austin for a test and met up with us!), and it was REALLY nice to have Jon to ourselves for a weekend! He's back to the books at school already.



I love throwing myself out there in hopes of becoming semi-famous (in my own world!). I did it a couple of years ago with my weightloss story that was put in Self Magazine, and then more recently shared my MS 150 story with this cute "women rock" blog called Bella Rosa. Check it out!


Before and After

BeforeStage II: Sanding
Yesterday I finished my first major project! I found a great bedside table at Goodwill for $10! After some sanding and a new coat of paint, it's our new side table for the new (craigslist) couch Jon bought for our new media room (we also inherited a projector this week!) Not bad for a week's work! (I also did a cute pot redo this week, but I'll post those pictures later when I get the plants in!)



We have been really blessed with the people we have met since moving here. These past couple weeks have been so nice weather wise, that it's been fun taking advantage of hanging out with good friends and good weather! Sevy has definitely been enjoying playing with her friends. We went to her little friend Jackson's house to swim and she was LOVING it! I need to get her into swimming lessons this summer because she just loves the water! We also celebrated our friend Marnie's birthday with a bbq at the Opdahl's home, and really, you couldn't have picked better weather! It's a shame it's gonna get really hot really quick because I could actually handle living in Houston for good if it stuck like this! (Minus hurricane season. Okay, I retract that last statement!)
