Papa Ken has a granddaughter who lives in Magnolia, TX
which is north of Houston.
So we drove up there for the weekend.
I wasn't sure what we would find, because San antonio
is pretty flat, till just north of town, when you get into the hill country.
We have scraggly short trees and it's green but not really vibrant.
The area north of Houston is GORGEOUS!
So green and beautiful tall trees.
It was such a pretty drive.
We finally got to our hotel rooms
It was a good sized room,
with Mom and Ken right next door
"I'm going to see Grammie"
At this point all she can think about is going swimming
Relaxing after the drive
Mom in her room
I never get pictures of myself so I grabbed a quick selfie
Ken's granddaughter came and we all had dinner together,
Daniel and I spent a lot of time in the pool with the kids.
Then on Sunday, we met up with family again
at a local little park.
They had playground stuff and a fun water park!
The water park is on a timer.
Ethan kept pushing the button whenever the water stopped
Sophie saw Ethan playing and came over
Running in and out of the water
Ethan found some friends to play with
It was such a nice day
It was a hot May day in Texas so the water was so nice
The quote of the day:
"I'm so grateful for my beautiful body" - sophie
On our way home we met up with our good friends,
Abby has grown up so much!
Sarah made us a wonderful Ethiopian meal
It brought back memories of get-togethers in San Antonio!
Ethan was playing in the back yard a lot
He got a little overheated
We loved the family style and eating with our hands!
We love these guys
Love you Sarah!
We loved all the down time we got with Grammie.
She played with the kids and helped out around
the house and I loved it.
Ethan loved it too!
