Austin

In July, Chuck had a conference in Austin. Considering that the majority of our family lives there, we of course wanted to go too!

We had fun at Nana and Big Daddy's. It was fun seeing Big Daddy with all his grandkids (all boys) in his hot tub!

We played with the neighbors next door, Harlan and Lucy. They have the best ride-on toys. Then Harlan kicked it up a notch by bringing out the water hose...

William had a blast!

And we played at Grandma and Grandpa's...I wish I had photos of his birthday gathering at the rv park. It was so fun! But afterwards, Uncle Jason went fishing, and the boys came along to supervise (and throw rocks in the water, thus summoning the fish...or something). Clearly their method worked, judging by the size of this monster he caught:

And back at Grandma's, Chance and Chandler built a great dinosaur jungle...

We also went swimming with Meesh and her boys (again no photos)...but I do have photos of the pool at the hotel. We were downtown and the pool was on the roof. It was a blast, especially with our new underwater camera (thanks Dad!)...

And for the second half of our week, we had a special family visit us. More about that in the next post.
