We had such a great time in Texas last week and now besides a huge head cold we are all wiped out. The rain followed us from Kansas City the first part of the week, but the last few days were absolutely beautiful and Sunny. One day we took London to the beach, which was her first time ever. The child absolutely loves the water, which the Hawaiian in me loves, but the mother in me is scared to death. Another day we spent out on my parent’s boat and of course we had lots of pool time. Nathan and I did manage to get a few hours to ourselves one evening and went for dinner and cocktails at the Tommy Bahama’s restaurant. If you’re ever near one you must go especially for the Poke. I also met Jennifer( you must check out her blog) that day as well at Tommy Bahama’s with her two kids for lunch. We’ve connected over Instagram and through blogging but never in person. We had such a great time that we even forgot to take a picture while we were together. For the evening of the 4th we headed to some family friends for a get together. London was so excited about the fireworks and kept talking about them, but as soon as they started she jumped in my lap and wanted to go bye bye. We ended up watching them from inside the house. But, now it’s back to reality this week and trying to get back on schedule. Next up we prepare for our Paris trip!
