Family {What Dreams and Vacations are Made of}

I’m utterly devastated to be back at work this week after our lovely time in Texas.  I had an amazing time with family, and it’s so hard to be back.  All I can think of is how fast my niece and nephew are going to grow between now and when I get to see them again.  I love them both so much!!! It’s like I left a part of me in Texas!And also, my obsession with my godson/nephew may or may not be very apparent in the pics I took! lol.

I loooooved seeing Roger around his family–to see how much they love him.

But all good things must come to an end.  Because as much fun as I had in Texas, it did a number on my digestive system.  Let’s just say I’ve got a lot of stomach shrinking to do after this week of eating whatever I wanted! Three breakfast tacos every morning, y’all! I was **in heaven.** Fo real.

So anyway, here’s what happened:


We landed in San Antonio, and after an hour or so at his parents’ home, we hit the road to see Roger’s grandpa in a small town near Houston.  It was about a two hour drive from San Antonio.  Roger’s sister, Amanda, and her children were in San Antonio this week too so they could spend some time with us. They were on all of these adventures with us!

Trip to da zoo!!! It was our nephew, Caden’s, first time! And he walked THE WHOLE TIME! Not bad for 18 months!

We spent time at San Antonio’s kiddie park, a place Roger’s parents took Roger and his sister when they were little.  Now they’re taking their grandkids. Time flies! After the kiddie park, we hit the road for Corpus Christi, where Roger and I had our Texas Wedding Reception on Thursday…aka, a party to meet his family.  We had the best time!

Our last moments with the fam.  We hit up Market Square in downtown San Antonio for some souvenirs, and cute photo ops.  Then dinner where I ate WAY too much.  THEN…we headed home to play this awesome Mexican card game called Loteria (pretty much bingo).  Amanda’s husband had joined us in San Antonio for our last night there, and we all had a blast with that game!

Aka, back to reality.  Sadness.  We made it to the airport in the knick of time, but before rushing to security, we got to say one last goodbye to my Caden and Lea.  Love those two! Missing all my family so much!
