Playing Games

We were able to spend a whole day playing games with Rebecca and Jeremy. They are very good at a lot of games and I'm just a tad bit competitive so it works out pretty good when we get to play!

Here is us all playing the Streetcar game, having quite a good time.

Here are the four of us all looking cool!

We brought Sydney a giraffe and we think she liked it!

More pictures of friends

We were able to spend an lovely evening with Steve and Lindsey and their kids

Suzanne and Lindsey next to the tree.

Dave and Steve looking cool!

They have the Guitar hero game, and we got to try it out while there.

We had the setting on easy so I rocked!

If you look close enough you can see the little Texas A&M's on the tree ornaments.

Trying to visit everyone

One way to visit lots of people when you don't have much time is go to a party where a lot of you friends are going to be.

Suzanne with a couple of her friends from "Back in the Day" :)

Hey look that's me, with my beautiful wife!

Hanging out having a good time.

It seems like everywhere we go we find a way to get a fire involved.

Ode to Ram

Rammy!!! We love you man!

I heard that Ram was bummed that we said that we went to Corpus to visit Eric :( We by no means meant that we didn't go to visit Ram. We got the added bonus of not having to go somewhere else along with Corpus to visit Ram. Ram we would have gone to the moon to visit you as well but were able to have a great time with you as well as Eric! It just wouldn't be the same without Ram!

Here's to Ram the best darn fire builder in all of Texas!

Dave likes fire!

Maybe it's a carry over from the Texas Aggie Bonfire, but Dave and his friends rally like to play with fire!

Ram was the master architect starting with a center pole and working around that.

Dave got in on the act, helping put some of the wood on the fire.

Dave and Eric next to our finished product.

Here is Ram getting it going.

Starting to catch!

It really got going pretty strong.

I tried to run and stand next to it to get my picture. It was really hot. I ran over there and said hurry take the picture I gotta get back away.

Ram trying to get close enough to roast a marsh mellow. Did I mention that it was really hot.

Me and my wife having a good time by the fire.

Fire, dominoes, beach, it doesn't get much better than that!

Corpus Christi Tx

While home we took a couple of days and went to visit our friends Eric and Ram in Corpus. We had a really good time while there.

We went to the Surf Club the first night there. There was a Roger Creager concert that evening.

Creager always puts on a good show. I don't think there is a time that we have been to a Creager concert and not had a good time.

Here is Eric with us having a good time.

This pictures of the band turned out a lot better than I expected.

Our other friend that lives in Corpus, Ram with Eric and Suzanne. The Surf Club has tables that are surf boards.

Traveling Fun

Traveling is always fun!

Our luggage is continually getting more ware and tare and our carry on has decided that it didn't want the handle to go up and down anymore. This makes it where you can either carry it without rolling or squat down and roll it. After a while it gets rather heavy, so I decided that it would be easier to carry on my head, but it was hard so I put a pillow under it.

The day before...

So now it is the day before we go on R&R. We'll be back in Houston this time catching up with people we haven't seen in quite some time. We'll dust off the old cell phones and hopefully they will still work :)

As promised: Suzanne in her new dress

New dress

The other day Suzanne went to the fabric market and bought some nice fabric. She is currently having a seamstress make it into a dress. When we get it back we'll put up a picture with her in her new dress.

Random Pictures

I thought maybe I'd put up some random pictures that we happen to have

Here is Dave playing with a spear. I think I was better with the boomerang than the spear but they were both fun.

A nice peacock from one of the places that we went to.

This is a nice view of the rainforest's trees from above. The gondola ride was really spectacular.

We really had to get a picture of one of the licence plates saying Australia!

This was a weird looking tree so I took a picture of it.
