My first video!

I'm back! I decided to try to make a video of our vacation to Galveston in June. We had a great time. Hope you enjoy it.

I rode a ferry boat for the first time and it was not so bad except that we got sprayed with water because we were in the front of the boat.
We also went to Moody Garden's aquarium, rainforest exhibit and rode on the riverboat called "The Colonel". The beach was fun too.
You will also see a quilt in the video that I took a picture of at Quilts by the Bay Quilt shop (you know I had to find one!)

It has been really crazy around here. My oldest son had some medical problems last week and it took a couple of days but he is ok now. My sister and her husband won the St. Jude Dream home on Sunday and the whole day was spent going to the house and celebrating with them. They have not received the legal stuff yet but the excitement is starting to wear off because now they are worried about having to pay the taxes and selling the house. They love where they live and don't want to move. They are middle class with two incomes and live pay check to pay check. I hope it all works out for them. Seems like winning something should be a good thing and not come with headaches but we'll see.

I'm taking a blog break. I can't seem to find the time to blog right now. I am trying to keep up with reading my favorite blogs and even that is hard. The summer is supposed to be a time of relaxation (at least it used to be) and slow paced but my life right now seems to be on fast forward and something has to give. I will try to come back soon. Hopefully things will settle down. I will check in as often as I can.
