and away we go....AGAIN!!

It seems like all we have done is pack, unpack, repack..and go..go...go!!

We spent a fun weekend in The Woodlands. M had a conference to attend, and L and I were able to attend as well....free of charge! We stayed at the Marriott on the Waterway....it reminded us of the San Antonio Riverwalk a bit...but much calmer and quieter! We enjoyed riding on the water taxi(boat), riding the trolley, or as L called it the "green school bus", and strolling around the Market Square area. SSSOOO many neat shops and restaurants.
We met up with some friends Friday night for dinner and let the kiddos play in the fountains afterwards. Saturday evening L played in a different set of fountains...that are set to music and change colors.....like a mini-Bellagio. After playing in the fountains, we headed back to the hotel and Michael and I put on our bathing suits too..(which is SO against my religion!).....We all had fun playing in the pool until 11:00 p.m....(closing time). Sunday morning we had a special birthday party to attend. Before we headed out, we got to ride the "Rice Krispie-Giselle-school bus"" (trolley). We had lunch at "Johnny Rockets" and stopped in an all chocolate bar...I got a few chocolate dipped strawberries, L chose a pretzel rod dipped in chocolate and rolled in mini m&m's...M had a piece of caramel/chocolate candy......yuummyyy! We made it to the birthday party, and enjoyed a great day at the beach celebrating a very special 1st birthday! Happy Birthday H.M.H!!!
