Family Fun in San Antonio! Day One...

Hi All! We just returned from our first family vacation--with Nole'. My Mom treated the whole family to a trip to visit my sister's family in San Antonio from June 1 through the 7th. We had so much fun on our mini-family reunion....my brother Joe and his wife Brenda weren't able to come because of all the flooding in Bismarck, so we were sad about that.

On our first day of the trip, Kevin had to stay behind one day because of emergency evacuations in our town due to flooding and to help take care of his mother.

So the first day, Grandma & Papa flew with me and the kids to San Antonio.

Grace was so frightened to fly again. She kept saying out loud to herself (& anybody who would listen) "Plane not scary. You go up. Stop. Go down. Then done." and "It's Ok, Grace, not scary." When she is upset, she self-talks herself through it. Bella, on the other hand, is a flying pro!
On Day One of Family Fun, we reconnected with the Texas cousins....

Ate at Freddie's....

And went swimming at the hotel pool.....
Aunt Karla & Bella....

Fun times on Day one!
