Mississippi Fun

Hello from Sunny Laredo! I realize it's been a while. We had a GREAT time in Mississippi over Spring Break and are getting back into the routine of things here in Laredo. We visited with many family members and even made a special trip to the Gulf Coast to see my Aunt and Cousin whom I haven't seen since one week before Hurricane Katrina hit them. My Aunt has a neat new "round house" on stilts!! This was my first trip to the Coast since the Hurricane and I couldn't not believe all the damage. We had a great time visiting with them. My sister Amber was able to come down and spend 3 days with us. Birte was exposed to a whole new way of life. I ask her what her favorite Southern dish was and she said she didn't know...we ate to many!! She was kidding either. We stuffed our faces the entire trip. She really seemed to enjoy MS. and all the open spaces. She got to do alot of firsts on this trip. Visit the South, eat Southern food, ride a 4-wheeler, ride in a golf cart, ride a horse, put her feet in the Gulf of Mexico. I'm sure I am forgetting something. We had FUN!! Here are a few pictures from our trip. Hope you enjoy!!

March Madness

It's been a while since my last post. I said I wasn't going to do that. Sorry!! Anyway, I am updating this as I wait to go to the airport in an hour and visit family in Mississippi for Spring Break. Gavin, Birte and I have been looking forward to this visit for a couple of months now.
Just wanted to update a few photos of Gavin enjoying popcorn about as much as his Dad. The funny thing is when Randy came and sat down with his popcorn bowl, Gavin quickly took it and put it in his lap. I think Randy's going to have a little competition on his hands! March has been pretty quiet for us so far. Gavin & Avery have been having their play dates twice a week and as you can see he's working hard to push her on the lion. She does the same for him. It's really cute to watch them play. Well, I'll be back in a week with more photos and updates to share from our trip home. Have a good Spring break.

Snowy Colorado

I've finally made it with the Colorado pictures. We had a great time visiting our "second parents" in Colorado. Unfortunately, Hilda (mom ) fell 2 days before our visit and cracked her hip. She had to have surgery and have pins put in. She is still in the hospital. Brit (dad) wasn't feeling so well and stayed in bed for most of our stay. With all that said, we still had fun!! Randy and Birte went to Breckenridge skiing on Friday. Gavin and I stayed home and did a little playing in the snow ourselves. We got to eat at a few of our very favorite restaurants. I recommend if your ever in Colorado Springs to have breakfast at King Chef in downtown and dinner at Wild Ginger (Thai food). The very best anywhere.

Birte and her bear at balancing rock in The garden of the the gods.

Gavin playing in the snow for the first time.

We really do miss Colorado, but not the cold. Had a great time being back in our home of 7 years.
