Gone for the weekend

leave a comment »

We went away for the weekend to Wendover, Nevada. It’s a gamblin’ town. We had such a great time!! The weather was very different there. The mornings were quite chilly and the afternoons were windy and cool. I came home a little lighter too. Can’t believe it. We had some really GOOD food. I tried to eat as low carb as possible. We did skip some meals-too busy at the casinos. We didn’t feel like eating-can you believe that?

2007 Martinez Mustang Island Trip

leave a comment »

Wow! We spent a week at Mustang Island. It was great! We had a nice 2 bedroom condo on the beach-Mustang Towers was the name of the condo. We went swimming and fishing. We had lots of fun being together. We played cards and ate alot of good food. Veronica made us some good Barbacoa. Mike did the majority of the cooking and cleaning in the kitchen. That was so great! I made some shrimp ceviche that everyone seemed to enjoy.It was so nice to be with Mike, Eva, Corey, Nathaniel, Veronica, Roland, and Ashley. Veronica and family stayed 2 nights with us and Mike and family stayed 5 nights with us.
 We had a few bumps during our trip- Danny took a fall at a little shop-he scraped his shin up pretty good. The water had to be boiled because of E Coli. We had a terrific lightning storm. Then we got a phone call telling us to put in the balcony furniture in and close the balcony doors- we had a tropical storm scare-Erin was the storm’s name. Then we started hearing about a hurricane– Dean coming next week. It was all over the TV-to start getting ready. Then the  electricity went out last night for about an hour and a half. We were getting a little worried, but it came back on around 8:30.
Nothing stopped us from having fun! Thursday evening we went out to eat with Eto and Connie. We ate at Snoopy’s- a great seafood place right on the water. It was delicious. On Friday, Danny went to play golf and I spent the day on the beach! Saturday we packed up and got home by 2:00.

Galveston Trip

leave a comment »

On Saturday, August 11, 2007, our family gathered at the beach in Galveston,Texas to scatter my Mom’s ashes.  As you can see from the pictures, it was a beautiful morning.  Mike read a bible scripture. We sang Amazing grace and prayed the serenity prayer. Donna, Nat, and I released Mom’s ashes into the water. Each family member had a flower to throw into the ocean after we released Mom’s ashes. It was a very sad moment, but something that we had to do.
Mike had prepared a wonderful and delicious breakfast for everyone, so we all went back to the beach house M’Lea had rented for the week and had a great meal of Chilequiles and beans.
