Week 1 of Vacation

We arrived Saturday to the Baytown area to see my maternal side of the family. We were so happy to get here because: A. we haven't seen them in a long time, and B. because it meant we'd endured the packing and driving! ;) The first evening we spent with my mom, 2 sisters, and brother - all of Mom's kids and grandkids under one roof. It was Bubba's Birthday (my youngest sibling, my only brother, Adam), so here are a few pictures of him.

Yes, that's rain in the background. Woohooo! We almost forgot what that was like!!
Bubba time!

Chan Man was all smiles, as always.
Bubba time!

Charlie helped Bubba with the candles.
Happy Birthday Bubba!

And an unexpected joy is the pile of sand near Granny and Bubba's house.
Sand Adventures

Charlie's not too keen on the idea of Chandler being around to mess up his sand castles, or his hair for that matter.
This is what it's like to have a lil bro.

I have more photos to process, so more to come. Chuck is working this week, so we're not doing a whole lot besides visiting. Then he has 2 weeks off, which we'll use to go and sight see in the area. Then we're return home for Chuck to start a new job...back at Rackspace. He's elated, and we're thankful for this blessing from God!

These are some wonderful vacation shots and memories. Thanks for sharing!

(And we just about forgot what rain is too, until a recent, and rare, downpour.)
