First Day of Fall!!!!

HI Everyone,
Well it is now officially the first day of fall, but if you were down here in South Texas you would not know it! It is 91 degrees outside and the trees are still all green! Well we are getting everything together to go back out on the road. We are very much excited though because it gives us a chance to be able to go and spend time with the rest of our family! Plus we love to go all over the country, My favorite place is to drive over in Tennessee they have the most beautiful canyons. I hope everyone is ready for the Holidays because I am. I love the Holiday time, plus I get to look forward to getting 1 more year older! HAHA Not really!!! But anyways I hope everyone has a great Holiday Season this year. I will not be blogging as much as I have been with being on the road. Mike drives the night shift and I drive the day shift but it works out pretty well!! We will be staying home this year for Christmas, and we look forward to our visit to Amy's family soon.

Padre Island Beach

Hi Everybody,

Ok here is the scoop, for everybody that has been watching the Weather Channel. Hurricane Ike has went just north east of Corpus Christi, Tx. Houston and Galveston is going to get the most of it. We will get a lot of wind and rain but that is about it thank goodness. But most of you who know Mike know how he has to explore everything so today we had to go to town, so mike says "Hey you want to go down to the beach" and Amy says sure? What was I thinking!!! Oh My goodness....

So we went down to Padre Island and it wasn't to bad until we get down there to Mustang Island and it was a lot of tides were coming in, most of the roads were closed down to the beach. So we saw a Tahoe go around the road closed sign so Amy says follow them.... So we go down a ways and just park and walk down to the beach and a BIG TIDE comes in and Mike was walking up on top of a mound and he thought Amy was right behind him and that water came up so fast that it swept Amy right up under her feet and i fell and i called for Mike. SO mike came running down there to rescue me....

So I guess you could say I went for a swim! So then we took some pictures and then we came home but it was pretty fun! So here are some pictures for you guys so you can see what Padre Island looks like.... We hope you guys enjoy the pictures.......

Hurricane Ike

Hello everyone, well everyone has been calling to see if we are ok. But it looks like Ike will be heading North of us so we will just get a lot of rain and wind. We feel like we will be fine just going to stock up on some food and supplies in case we lose power. It should hit us by tomorrow and Saturday. Hopefully it will only be a Cat 3. So im sure we will be stuck home all weekend I will keep everyone informed in case you can't reach us I will call don't worry as soon as the phone lines are not busy. If we have power I will update everyone on Saturday. Thanks for all the prayers.

Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008

Hi Everyone, well this week has been pretty busy. We have been working outside trying to get our yard to look good. We have been diggin up trees and bushes, and we also bought some flowers to plant. It has taken us a few days but we have got a lot of progress done. If you don't do it early in the morning it get's way too hot in the afternoon it has been 100 degrees with the humidity, someday I don't know why I even bother taking a shower because all you need to do is go outside for about 10 minutes and you will be wiping the sweat off your brow. But anyways, here are some pictures of our yard, im new at this but i will try to post some before and after. Also on Friday was Mike's Birthday and im always trying to sneak around him to try to surprise him. So i have been planning all week to have a little get together for his birthday it was really fun. We had his extended family over so it was fun. Amy got him the new Guitar Hero 3 Legends of Rock for our Nintendo WII, his mom bought him a new Weed Eater it is a 4 cycle gas trimmer so you don't have to mix the oil and gas. It is very nice, Tad and Cindy gave him a $25 Chili gift card, Steve and Cecil gave him a Craftsman Scrollsaw it is very nice, Pat and Boots gave him some treatment for our truck. So it turned out very nice and I made dinner for everybody and we had cake and ice cream. It was a very wonderful day. So I hope everyone enjoys the pictures.
