From Poteet to Port Aransas

My goodness April has been a busy month, and now getting you all caught up is a task which is entirely too daunting. Why do I always do this? Now, I have a bazillion things I could tell you about what we have been doing, and a bazillion pictures I could post. I will try to keep it to the basics. Marcus had a week off, and we LOVED it.
To start off the week, we went to a little town called Poteet, TX (say it with a Texas accent, it's rather fun) for their annual strawberry harvest festival. Strawberries galore: strawberry pie, strawberry icecream, strawberry shortcake, you name it. We also got to see a rodeo in Poteet, (are you not surprised?) and had a blast. We went with our good friends the Joneses and finally reached home about 10:00pm with four sleeping kids and bellies full of yummy treats. Then, on Monday we had a few neighborhood friends over for Jack's fourth b-day. Jack could hardly contain himself he was so excited. He really wanted a superhero party, so yours truly sewed 10 superman capes, and we had a house full of little super heroes. I dressed Marcus up in a silly costume, took a picture and made a "Wanted" sign, telling the kids that I heard there was a "Cake stealer" in the area that wanted our cake. Then, while the kids were inside Marcus went and got his costume on and ran around in the backyard untill one of the kids spotted him. I gave each kid a bottle of silly string and they all sprayed the Cake Stealer for a good 15 minutes. It was hilarious and so much fun. Then on Wednesday we packed up the car with our bikes and headed off to the beach. We went to a little costal town called Port Aransas on Mustang island, right off the coast of Texas. It was only about 2 and a half hour drive, and we got to take a ferry to get onto the island (which Jack thought was awsome that our car got to go on a boat). We rode our bikes all around the town, and played on the beach for two days straight. Eliza thought she was in heaven strutting around the beach and getting as sandy as she could. We had a great trip, and will definately go back many times.

So that is what we have been up to lately. Sorry I am such a sporadic poster! I hope you all still peek at our blog every now and then to see what we have been up to. For some reason my whole blog roll got erased off of my blog!! It was so frustrating. I love looking at all of your blogs, even if I am not the best at leaving comments. Love you all!
