Living It Up

After we made the decision to take in the baby, we were motivated to get the kids out of the house as much as possible while it is still "easy". Not that we won't go anywhere with an infant, but it will be harder for sure.

Saturday we went to the Children's Museum. This is Joe enveloped in a giant bubble:
Here we have Mikea wearing a pilot's hat:
The best part was the miniature grocery store. Dan selected some fresh fish:

Joe loaded up on Buddy Grahams:

And Mikea filled her cart with anything and everything she could. She then drove it around like a madwoman.
Sunday we went to early church and then drove down to Padre Island. The kids were much more comfortable with the water than the last time we went.

Then on Monday we went to the Alamo and the Riverwalk with my sister and her kids who were visiting from Colorado.

Here you can clearly see the exhaustion on the kids' faces. When this picture was taken it was close to 100 degrees and during the peak of naptime after several days of constant activity. They were troopers through it all. Now we're just spending quiet time at home, waiting and preparing for Baby's arrival.
