We had a great break. We mostly stayed home and played. We had a few adventures and Grammy and Grandpa visited for a few days. It was a busy and relaxing two weeks.
Some park fun once the weather finally changed and it felt like a Houston winter.
Drew and I went on a real actual date! We went out to a nice restaurant where something besides chicken nuggets is served. Then we went ice skating at Discovery Green. Finally we looked at Christmas lights in River Oaks. Such fun!
New Year's Eve was super low key. We stayed home, watched footbal, and set off fireworks.
Our friends came over for the traditional pork and sauerkraut meal on New Year's Day. Yum!!!
Saturday after the exciting and only mildly disappointing PSU game we explored the Bayou Bend Gardens. This place will be stunning in the spring when all the flowers bloom. We had lots of fun walking around and touring the house. It was the perfect afternoon adventure.
Sunday was the Texans game. Drew and I had a blast tailgating and cheering on the Texans to victory. The defense was fantastic and I love that part of the game the most. Our seats were on the 50 in row 4....generous and wonderful Christmas present from Drew. Watching my favorite sport that close was awesome for me! I so very much enjoy watching all the aspects of the game you can't see on tv.
We finished our two week escape from
life with dinner over the fire. It was a fun way to end break.
Now we just have to survive one week until we head to CO for a week of skiing and gymnastics. I love my family and the memories we make together.
