A little vacation....with family

So since the holidays are here, and my husband works for a state school, we get 2 weeks of vacation!!! We visit our family, eat good food and have a good time. Surprisingly, most of it is enjoyable!

The first weekend in a while that Aunt Caren had a weekend off, so we decided to go see her in Arlington...
This is Caren and Andrew taking a break on the Sears Home Department floor

In Earthbound, checking out the crabs. Andrew didn't want anything to do with them.

Lookin' good at an Arlington park.

This was another park that had a pond on it.

Such good pictures!

Forgive this picture, for it is not photoshopped when it needs to be! HA!
Up in the Tower of the America's in San Antonio with Gary's side of the family.
The one thing that Andrew never gets tired of, is pointing and going "ooooohhh...."

Great Aunt Natalie and Andrew

Going into a 4D mini-movie of the awesomeness of Texas.
Aren't we a good looking pair? A dorky but good looking pair...
FYI, I love this state!

Trying out the big guns at the Buckhorn Saloon in San Antonio.
We ate lunch here before heading out the Disney's Lion King play at the theatre. I wish I would have taken a picture of the place...I can't believe I didn't. There was not a single spot on the walls that wasn't covered with a type of wildlife head. Deer, caribou, cows, elk, you name it; even a polar bear stood up high in its once-alive defensive stance!!! Burgers were nothing to be excited about, but that place was sure something to check out!

At the bowling alley in Waco with the Bates and the Wittys.
We played husband/wife teams. Damien (bro-in-law) had a great idea--whose ever team lost, they'd pay for dinner. Guess who lost? The Bates did...the Bates did. =)

Andrew loves his uncle Damien, he's always beating him up ;)

Elita (Nana) and the Bates boys played on a separate lane with gutter rails...they kicked our butts!
Here's Nana letting Andrew roll on her turn.

This little dude climbs on EVERYTHING!!!

Merry Christmas y Feliz Navidad!
Hope you all have a wonderful time with family and have an good New Years!
