Sad attempt for family pictures......

Its that time of year again....Family pictures and well I am sad to say that this is how they turned out
Boy Cousin Picture

These next set of pictures was suppose to be a cousin picture and well you would think it wouldn't be that hard to get a 17, 12, 8, 4 and 1 1/2 year old to smile...or should I say sit still....

so we thought we would bust out the bubbles.....didn't work so well

next was suppose to be a girl cousin picture and well....
Cooper thought he was one of the girls

what is missing from this picture? Do you give up?....COOPER.... he was off trying to get some smores without supervision

After all that hard work sweating in the Austin heat, we did manage to get some good pictures

Vacation-Part 2

On our way to San Antonio we HAD to stop in Gruene, Texas so that Cooper could have his first of many pictures infront of Gruene Hall and the famous water tower. After Gruene we headed to San Marcos to shop at the outlet stores, which Cooper was VERY excited about. We introduced Cooper to some of our favorite restaurants while in San Antonio...Chris Madrids and Rudys BBQ!

We had a wonderful time on our vacation, it was nice to get away for awhile before things start getting crazy again!

We went on a wonderful vacation the first week of August! We spent the first half of the week in Austin at Lost Pines Resort and then the last part of the week we took Cooper to Sea World in San Antonio. This part of Texas is our favorite and there is so much to do. We tried some new places and had to visit some old. We had so much fun that it was really hard to come home. There is ALOT of pictures so I will have to post them separate so...... Here are the pictures from Lost Pines in Austin!
