Ike Evacuation!

I'd like to thank Holly and Joey for letting us evacuate to their house last week when Hurricane Ike was nearing the gulf coast. I am grateful that we were spared here in Corpus Christi but I am sorry for those in Houston who have lost so much. It's really tricky living on the coast because you never know where the hurricane is exactly going (it had been projected to hit us) so you have to be prepared- boarding windows, checking supplies and food and packing all your valuable pictures and things. It's a lot of hard work and then you don't even get a drop of rain. I am happy though that we had a 4 day weekend to got to visit our family in Dallas. Tara was able to come on Saturday morning and we were all able to spend the day together. Hurricane Ike went through Dallas on Saturday though so it was stormy outside most of the day. We did venture out in the evening though and played some laser tag. It was Aubrey and Ella's first time as well as mine. We had a lot of fun!!
Here are some pictures of us as we waited to be seated at

Sarah Palin for VP!

Last night I watched the Republican National Convention and really enjoyed Sarah Palin's speech. She is such a breath of fresh air and I feel is a real straight talker. I feel excited about the election again! If you didn't get the chance to watch it, you can read about it or watch the video HERE. The second picture is of her with her husband and 4 of her children. She's had a baby since this picture was taken. Let me know what you think!
