Hubba Hubba!

Now this handsome fellow is somebody you don't see very often.

This is mainly due to the fact he is always the one operating the camera. Karla just doesn't do electronics, and the kids aren't old enough yet. So pictures like this are the only way there is ever going to be proof that I'm even along for these vacations.

Today we did Moody Gardens. We did the Rainforest Pyramid, the Aquarium Pyramid, the IMAX, the Discovery Pyramid, and the Butterfly Maze. Since we got a two day pass, we'll be back tomorrow to do the Rainforest Pyramid, the Aquarium Pyramid, the IMAX, and the Butterfly Maze. Yeah, we got this stuff down to a science. I can already hear the seven year old complaining, "But we saw this yesterday!" I'll take my time tomorrow and look towards taking photographs that might be useful for photo manipulation and cover uses.

I've done a lot of walking, but so far I'm holding up well.  I've been careful to take breaks and rest as much as possible. I'm sore, but I was expecting to be in a lot worse shape than I am. After tomorrow, we will be spending two days at the water park which will probably be less of a physical drain on me. Since I can't go in the water, and I'll be avoiding the sand, my job is pretty much to find a seat somewhere and watch.

I can do that. But first one more day at the Pyramids!


  1. Love the new hat! You, Karla and the kids look like you're having a great time. (even if they do look a little lobster red-haha) Sounds like y'all have the vacation days all planned out. Keep resting when you can and don't over-do.
    Yep, I can hear Sheridan--"Da-ad, why are coming here again? Huh, huh? Da-ad, why don't we go somewhere else? Why, why, why, why..." LOL LOL! Enjoy these days together and love to all!!! C.

  2. A family vacation. Haven't even contemplated something like that in years.

    Oh, and are you on twitter at all?
