spring breakers and a bug...

We traveled to Tomball/Houston for spring break. We broke up the drive with a stop in Fredericksburg for one night. 
 We always love Mimi and PawPaw's cute house.

 One of our favorite eateries is Hondo's since you can eat outside and the food is great. And you can play Connect Four while you wait. 
love that tub.

We had a little fire in the chiminea. Boone was running around with my hoodie on.

 The next morning we got on the road to Houston, but made a quick stop for breakfast. 

Gotta stop at Buc-ee's. We did not buy those!
 But we did get a treat.
 This crazy kid kept grabbing the apples at Buc-ee's, so that's what he got.  He missed out on some good junk.
 We got to Houston and had dinner with all of our cousins! How awesome that both sides of our cousins live close to each other. And they are friends! 

The next day, Uncle Nick had to work, we left the babies at home and Wendi, Dave and I took the big kids to the Houston Live Stock Show and Fair.

I was faking a smile as a stomach bug was quickly approaching. :( boo.

 The kids ate some good food, rode the rides and played games.

 Then we were back at the Junods where there is always tons of fun. Except also the terrible stomach bug was looming around the house. Boone was dressed like this because we ran out of clothes because he was the next victim. Didn't slow him down one bit!

 The hot tub was heated, but the pool was not. A few of the crazies braved the chilly water. 

 Brooks swimming across.
 We might have done this a few times. A little double buckle in the back seat. We weren't ever going far. :)

 late night hot tubbin'.

Playing in the awesome new treehouse that is almost finished.
So the stomach bug swept through the entire crew leaving only Baby Townley and Graham standing. Mercy! Anna got it first at home, the Friday night before we left. But she bounced back fast and we thought getting to Houston on Monday would be no biggie. We thought wrong.  We saw no signs of it again until I got sick Tuesday.  For most it was over fast, but for a few- not so much. We felt HORRIBLE for bringing that awful thing to the spring break par-tay. The Junods were such troopers and Wendi did not blame us one bit for still making the trip.  If someone polluted my family with that thing, I would not have been so nice. We still had fun and enjoyed our time together, but hoping that thing stays far, far away for a while!! It was worth the drive and worth the bug to see these special peeps!!
