Memorial Day Weekend in Dallas
We had the opportunity to take a brief vacation to fly down to see my two sisters for Memorial Day Weekend. This is my sister, Tracy, her husband, Dave, and their daughters, Lauren and Britney. Aren't they just swell?
This is my other sister, Tammy. She also has a husband named, Dave, and three daughters, Lindsey, Mallory, and Bailey. They're pretty swell as well!
The boys sure had fun hanging out with their cousins for the Holiday Weekend! They seem to fight a lot less when surrounded by so many cute girls.
Grandma Linda also went down to Texas with us and actually seemed happy for a little while. Maybe that was because she was with me in this picture...
Most of the time she likes to yell at us for the little things like here where she was exclaiming "Where the hell are my chips to go with this salsa?"
We also had the chance to see our cousin Terri while we were there which is always a special treat for us!
As a special bonus, we had the chance to meet our niece Bailey's new friend, Mark. Aren't they just so cute together?
We didn't have a lot of time in Dallas, but we knew what we wanted to do while we were there. Be in the water!
Most of the time, we were in the pool. But we did get to go out to Lake Grapevine on Sunday for a little tubing action!
I can't remember if we'd ever been able to get Grandma Linda on the tube before. Not sure if we're going to be able to make it happen again, though.
Most of the girls did great on the tube and exhibited no fear whatsoever!
The boys are still getting used to the whole concept of being drug around the lake at high speeds behind the back of the boat. At first they were really happy about it.
Then the nerves started kicking in as the waves became a little bit bumpier.
By the end of the day their enjoyment level for the raft went down quite a bit. I'm not sure why.
In any case, it was pretty hot that day, so I'm sure Uncle Dave enjoyed having the opportunity to jump in the lake to go help out the kids!
Whenever the boys suffer serious anxiety attacks from things like being thrust into the lake at high speeds, we've found that it calms their nerves to have them stare at carp and turtles for several hours afterwards. Not quite sure about the scientific reasoning behind the process, but it seems to work for us.
So on the way home, my brother in law, David Mohar, dropped us off at the airport. We saw a cop car fly by us and then Dave called me shortly after he dropped us off and said he saw the wreck. The next day at work, a friend sent me this video which I'm pretty confident is the accident in question. I'm glad we weren't closer to this lady while she was driving!!
